Easy, Cheesy French Bread

I have been craving Italian food lately.  Like seriously craving it.  However, I feel like I am dealing with a heat hangover.  Last week, we were dealing the final swing of monsoon heat and this week, it's COOL!  Go ahead and laugh at me but I was ready to break out with a sweater when temps dropped to 81.

Sue me.

Open windows with fall air blowing in my apartment.  Ahhhhhhhh.  Relief.

That means, it's time to turn on the oven.  Hallelujah!!!

Recipe: Taco Burgers & Scallion Cilantro Lime Ranch. AKA Mexican Sloppy Joes or Bun Taco

One of my favorite foods as a kid was a taco burger.  

Literally- a taco on a bun.  You could even call these Mexican sloppy joes but boy do I love them.  I have had a serious craving for them lately.

Who loves the Nutcracker ballet?  Me, too! I am so excited that Em will be able to perform in it again this year! When Em suffered her traumatic brain injury, my dreams of her being able to learn to do ballet was left behind.  Although she won't be able to plie, arabesque, or fouette, she can still dance and twirl in her own adapted form.  

Between her therapeutic adaptive ballet sessions, practicing for the Nutcracker, adaptive exercise programs and her rehabilitative therapies... she's a girl on the go.  To top it all off, she's a growing 12 year old girl!

Recipe: Macaroni & Cheese Soup

It's finally under 100!!!  Fall has arrived.  It's sweater and boots time! Yeehaw! Just kidding BUT it really is time to chow down on some serious comfort food!  I don't know about you but I feel that there is nothing as comforting as a bowl of macaroni and cheese or a bowl of soup.

Thank you EPIC Hearing Healthcare for sponsoring this conversation about hearing loss and hearing aids but as always, my opinion is mine. 

I've always taken my hearing for granted.  The ability to hear my favorite song, listen to a movie while I work on my blog, hearing the birds outside and my daughter giggle are just every day bits of my life that I just don't think twice about it.
