After successfully baking up a batch of chewy Nutella blondies, I was excited to try other flavors. Blondie recipes are versatile and you can put different mix-ins. So this time I added crushed Oreos to make cookies and cream blondies.


Roy’s Happy Hour is offered seven days a week from 4:30-6:30 pm in the bar area. Six appetizers, along with a pretty good selection of cocktails, wine and beers are all $5 each.

I’ve been wanting to check it out for a while, and finally got a chance to a few weekends ago.

We started out with some cocktails:

Basil Cucumber Collins and Coconut Frappe

Mango Mojito

I couldn’t decide what appetizers to order, so we asked for them all. The waiter was great at taking our order, even combining some of the appetizers together so that they would fit at our table. We got almost all our food immediately.

Wagyu Beef Sliders


Sometimes ideas don’t turn out as expected.

I had come up with what I thought was a brilliant idea for Nutella flavored donut holes. But when I tried making them, they turned brittle during the frying process, from the chocolate directly hitting the hot heat. I tried changing up the recipe. A little better, but the outside still developed a weird layer that wasn’t pretty or tasty and the middle was taking forever to cook.

Then I tried filling the dough balls with Nutella filling, and the Nutella came oozing out and made a mess.
