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!

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
