My Opinion:
If you have been reading my blog a while then you know how much I like the Chicken Soup series.  If you're new, let me tell you how much I love this series. A lot! I always reach for a book from this series when I am feeling my lowest. Yes, I have bad days like everyone else, and these stories always pick me up. It doesn't even have to be relevant to my situation, it's just nice hearing inspirational stories of strength, faith, love, respect and perseverance.
Food and Love didn't disappoint either. The best part is, the food lover in me got recipes! And you know I had to pick one to try. Tonight we tried the Cauliflower in Spicy Tomato Sauce.
MMM... 
It accompanied other things, but we'll focus on this dish from the book. 
It was an Indian flavor, which is my absolute favorite! It wasn't very hard to make at all, and it tasted delicious. My only criticism is to cook the veggies a tad longer than required in the book, but it's also per taste.
I think food lovers will enjoy the book for the recipes and the great stories that are all food related.
I definitely recommend!

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
