My kids and I recently discovered Nutella. Yes, I know. We are behind most of America on this one. But now that we are in the twenty-first century with everyone else, we are die-hard fans. And thank goodness for the blogosphere (and Pinterest!), where I am able to find endless ideas for using it in recipes. Here are some of my faves.

As a native Michigander, I was not prepared for the sweltering heat of Texas summers.

Thanks to the ideas from these inventive bloggers, we have found ways to have fun in the sun using ice!
