My brother is a junkie. No, maybe that is too harsh a word to use, let’s be nicer and call him an addict. He has no control over his love, his lust and his obsession. Unfortunately, he has all the symptoms of an addict; he can do anything to get his fix, by anything I mean, cheat, steal or kill for it! Once he gets his high he is all over the place, happy as diva with new heels on, he talks to everyone and asking how they are fairing.

Sometimes I feel sad about my brother’s addiction. I feel like he got it from me as I had the same addiction when I was younger. He’d see what I did and go ahead and do the same thing later. But I got over it and he is no longer a child so it’s about time he got over his addiction, he is a grown man now goddamit. My brother, Charles, is a Nuttela addict.

The boy is compeletly in love with nutella. If he could he’d marry it. Sleep with it every night then have his way with it again for breakfast.



These muffins were made with him in mind, I thought I needed to make it a little healthier so the banana and oats came in handy. Charles did not like the oats in this; he said it made the muffins taste a tad bit too healthy for his addict self. I loved them, I loved the texture and that they had nutella yet did not have too much sugar. Let me know what you think.
