Nutella and Strawberry Panini and Boy Voyage

I made this simple panini recently for the nutella challenge, I must confess I am not a big baker, I cook more savoury food, as I am sure you have noticed. But I must say this was delicious and so simple, simple add nutella and a few slices of strawberries or any fruit to the bread and put in the panini maker. Its warm gooey chocolate heaven.

And Bon Voyage, we are going to Fort Lauderdale Florida for a few days, can't wait, to walk along the beach with Jasmine and hubby, shop and find some good places to eat, if you have any suggestions for us please comment!

Will take pictures and share with you, one thing I love about the area is the good Cuban food in Miami and the South American influence, oh yeah!!

love and hugs


  1. HAVE FUN!!! I haven't been to Ft. L yet, but I always find the best food in Florida is found at the down-home fish shacks. I enjoy ordering things like fresh fish sandwiches, etc.

  2. oh I envy you! Enjoy your trip! :)

  3. You had me at "nutella"! Have a fun trip!

  4. Have a great trip! Bring us all back some seafood please!

  5. Have fun and enjoy your time with jasmine !!!

  6. Have a wonderful time in Ft. Lauderdale. I stayed at the Riverside Hotel, a boutique hotel on Las Olas a while back. Yanni was playing the piano during dinner in the dining room. Don't think it's Jasmine's kind of food, but none the less, Yanni's music was terrific. Lots of places to eat on Las Olas Blvd.

    Go to the beach where they filmed the movie "Where the Boys Are" a zillion years ago. Every cabby knows it and let Jasmine get some sand in her toes on the beautiful white beaches.

    If you get to North Miami, which is very near Ft. Lauderdale, there's a wonderful old, traditional family Italian deli on Dixie Highway. Think it's Lorenzos. Google it. It's almost in Broward county, right over the line actually in Dade county. Dixie Hwy is easy to find too. You can eat there or take-out. Very old school Italian authentic deli that are rapidly disappearing in modern times. Their prosciutto is the best.

    Have a great time. See you when you get back.

  7. Oh my!This looks like a great evening snack with a glass of milk.
