Top 10 Tastiest Treats of 2010

The ball is about to drop on 2010. That’s right Ryan {you know the one that you can’t turn the tv on without seeing everywhere. Do you think he sleeps? I mean how many jobs can one possibly have?} with his perfectly coiffed hair and freshly crest whitened teeth will be plastered on the tube counting down the minutes and reminiscing for HOURS about 2010 memories.

And in ryan-esque style {minus the perfectly coiffed hair, because well simply I don’t have a personal stylist with me at times} we’re looking back on the best of OUR 2010 posts. I imagine that if Ryan were interviewing me {hey it could happen right LOL} The microphone would be branded with a Nutella jar. He’d lean in and say Paula tell us about your tastiest treats of 2010. Why, thank you Ryan {flipping hair} LOL…waking up from dreamland….

I don’t think you’re going to be shocked at all but 5 out of 10 of our top posts were NUTELLA related. That’s right, my beloved Nutella has practically taken over the top 10. Not only the top ten, they grace four of the top 5 spots! I’m wondering if I should forego pasta, gnocchi and risotto and go all Nutella all the time ; )

As much as I LURVE Nutella you know I also love my pasta, gnocchi and risotto so….

Here we go counting them down, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, ONE….

    I am not surprised about your results. What is not to LOVE about Nutella?
    But I am torn – my two girls need some fattening up, but Husband certainly does not. And these would be his crack. Not good.
    The brownies are my favorite.
    How sad that none of my coworkers have ever heard of Nutella, and the GM described it as a type of frosting!
    Buon Anno!
