Q: How many books can you put in an empty backpack?
A: One—after that it’s not empty anymore.

How I love silly jokes and delicious pizzas. One of each today.

Any recipe that has crushed tortilla chips on top is a winner in my book. In this taco-style Mexican pizza, the ranch-flavored variety of chips are tossed over a cheddar-refried bean base along with tomato, olives and lettuce. Yum.

As I type this, my girl is home from college asleep in her bed. She’s in her second year away at school and I still find it paralyzing when she is not here.

‘Paralyzed’ by Hardcastle really resonates with me. It’s a song the band describes as about love and distance.

“I walk the line between insanity and
Complacency with where I am
I can’t wait for this feeling to end”

Check out Hardcastle on the band’s Website. You can buy the music here.
