In college I studied abroad in Siena, Italy. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I have so many wonderful memories from that short, but life changing stay. The food, the wine, the language, the people, the art ... Tuscany, I really can't recommend it highly enough. On this beautiful day of amore I wish I could transport us all to that enchanted place. Alas, while that is impossible, I can offer you a recipe that is both delightful and decadent. A recipe so good some might argue it's life changing, at least my life was forever changed when my "house mom" (I had the pleasure of living with a wonderful family during my stay) served me granola studded with chunks of dark chocolate and roasted hazelnuts for breakfast. Chocolate for breakfast people, that's how much I love you!
Head over to Spoonful for the recipe. Oh, and if you want to enjoy it the Italian way, be sure to serve it with warm milk.
Happy Valentine's Day!
