Did you know eggplants get their name because when young they actually look like eggs? Fun fact for ya. The majority of people, I'd say love pizza. I can name 2 people that don't like pizza. That is it! Pizza is so comforting, also filling, cozy and delicious. It is an easy meal for those weeknights that you don't want to cook and easy meal that the kids will enjoy. On top of all that, you can make pizza so many different ways, from the crust, toppings, cheese and sauce! Eggplant pizza tastes just as good and is a lighter bite than a traditional pizza.

This company donates to the wildlife conservation. Their milk chocolate is at least 48% cocoa and the dark chocolate is anywhere from 60-88% cocoa.

Soup is so yummy and always easy to make. The longer it sits the better it tastes. My all time favorite soup is my Herb Lemon Chicken Soup. We always think of making soup in the winter, when we are sick or to keep warm. However, soups can also be made in the summer and still feel summery. I haven't made this Easy Cod Soup with Tomato Broth in a while. Come to think about it, I only make it in the summer.
Potato skins are pretty popular as appetizers at restaurants. Yet, I have never had one at a restaurant. For some reason they don't look as good as making them homemade. My husband and I challenged ourselves to just eating seafood for 2 weeks. Meaning no meat of any kind. I make my potato skins with bacon, therefore, I decided to make appetizer cajun shrimp potato skins since bacon was not an option this time.
