Banana Nutella "Pizza" and a Free Download

Hello everyone!
After a very hectic February, I’m back with more food and ideas to share! I know it’s been quiet Dining here at Tiffany’s, but I promise I’ve been writing a bunch — just in other places.

One outlet to which I’ve been contributing my writing is through my Volunteer Internship with Thurman Consulting. My project is to coordinate a free, online teleseminar series covering topics about career and leadership development based on the book How to be a Nonprofit Rockstar. I have the fun role of writing event descriptions and engaging in Twitter conversations at the hashtag #nprockstar. I love the topics since they align with the “Catering Your Success” themed posts on my website.

Aside from my internship, the majority of my free time/energy has been spent completing graduate school applications and writing personal statements. It was honestly a very grueling process, but I learned a lot about myself; in reflecting on my past work and academic experience, I gained inspiration and ideas for moving forward, especially with Dining at Tiffany’s.

1. I want to continue “Catering Your Success!”

So by popular request, I’m sharing my template for graduate school application requirements. Click here or on the photo! I hope that you find this helpful as a way to keep track of the many details of completing your applications.

2. I want to feed you! While Dining at Tiffany’s is about both the food and the conversation, I want to make sure I’m providing enough food so you don’t go hungry ;). I haven’t been posting too many recipes because I have been way too busy to test out and perfect complex dishes. In the meantime, I figure I can always share some of the quick ideas I cook up in my kitchen! With that, I’ll leave you with a fun dish I created over the weekend. This is a great breakfast or snack option for all you nutella lovers out there. It’s also relatively good for you. Enjoy!
Banana Nutella “Pizza”

– A few slices of flat bread (You can use whole grain pita, naan, etc. I used a freshly baked flat bread from here)
– A couple spoonfuls of Nutella hazelnut spread
– A sliced banana
– A handful of chopped, raw almonds (or any nuts you have on hand)

Spread nutella onto slices of flat bread. This is your “pizza” sauce. Sprinkle with almonds to add crunch and extra protein!
– Heat in a toaster oven at 375 degrees for about 7 minutes (Real Talk: I cooked mine over 10 minutes because I used the “medium” toast setting, burning some of the Nutella.  When you make it, the Nutella should be a lighter brown, unlike the above picture. Oops.). Basically you want the Nutella to be melty and the bread to be crispy. The almonds get a nice roast as well. Mmm.
– Top with sliced bananas and enjoy immediately. I sure did, with a side of hot coffee (which I drank gallons of in February).

With love,
Tiffany R.
