Hold the hazelnuts – before I have hives.

I hate hazelnuts. OK, in all honesty, I’m just allergic to them. 

So the hatred is health-related.

Hosts of hazelnut lovers stick ‘em in desserts. The mere mention of hazelnut cakes, candies, chocolates, and cookies makes many people hungry.

But not me.

I practically break out in a rash at the mere mention of the acorn-like nuts.

Still, there is one hazelnut I enjoy.

There’s a special little girl in our family named Hazel, and she’s fondly tagged the Hazelnut. She  is very sweet, and she likes to bake – perhaps even with hazelnuts.

But that’s a whole different story.

  1. It must be frustrating to have to be cautious all the time. I do love hazelnut coffee creamer.

  2. I'm allergic to macadamia nuts, but I do love hazelnuts! I imagine hazelnuts are harder to avoid. And you can't have nutella!! So sad!

  3. Oh gosh, that's just about the cutest nickname ever! I'm sorry you're allergic... I just hope you're not allergic to anything you actually enjoy a taste for, because that would be tough. I actually love all nuts. The ones mentioned above are some of my faves (macadamias and hazelnuts). I also truly love almonds and pistachios. I even like those slightly gross Brazil nuts when they are mixed with other nuts... even though they sort of taste like a rotted peanut. I enjoy big handfuls of many nuts mixed together. That's one of my favorite snacks. :)
