I prepped  this beauty, and a few more, a couple of days before I took off for Germany, thinking that I can keep posting at least twice weekly while on the road. Oooops, that did not work out as planned. But, this here little gem deserves the extra time spent on the computer when I could be exploring my old/new country.
Without further ado, here is the easiest to prepare, prettiest to look at and most important, “yummiest” sweet dish of the month 🙂

One For The Kids # 2 – Banana/Nutella Tortilla Roll With Fresh Raspberries And Blueberries

>
>
Yesterday  afternoon my friend Ralf came by with his four-year old son Justin.
Ralf and I had some Chili Noodles which were fantastic, but would have been way too spicy for a four-year old, so I made this dish for him. I made this for him before, so I knew he would love it. Heck, so did Ralf and I. (Of course I prepared way too much, so we ate the rest) 🙂
While this is a simple, quick and easy dessert or snack, it is yummy and pretty enough to serve on any informal occasion.

I just know that somebody out there will be inspired by the look of these tortillas and serve a variation of them as a whimsy “Marrow Bone Dessert” 🙂

I had  these a couple of days ago and I had waffles again this morning (bacon waffles).
Waffles – my new Addiction 😦 🙂
I have made them with raspberries, bacon, shrimp, crab meat, caramelized apples, shredded chicken and caramelized onions. They are so versatile and never disappoint. Just make sure that when you make a savory version you cut 3/4 of the sugar and add kosher salt to taste.
Good Stuff ! 🙂
