What if I kiss all the spots
you taught yourself to hate?
What if I placed my hands on them
and left them still, long enough
for my heat to join yours
and you to forget there was ever air
between our skin?
What if I love all you loathe
and what if I spend my days
dirtying up your brain that was washed?
Show you new pictures of the same you
you started avoiding in the mirror?
What if I say all they say is wrong
and fill your ears with honest words
in a language you stopped practicing?
What if I plant new flowers
in the places you frown at,
and teach you the names of them
as they bloom?
What if I told you to never cut them
and let the petals decorate the floor
as you twirl through your life?
What if you forget
you were ever anything other

This is one of my favorite meals from growing up. But be warned, this is a very fatty recipe – completely not health conscious whatsoever. So if you’re counting calories or trying to lose weight, this is definitely not for you. However, if you’re looking for the occasional delicious treat for a meal for your family, for a party or a potluck, or just because, give it a try!
My mom’s Pizza Casserole recipe:
(as seen on my YouTube channel)
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 packet burrito spices
- 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella
- 2 rolls Pillsbury crescent rolls (Butter flake flavor is best)
- mushrooms, black olives, onions, bell peppers, or whatever other fillings YOU want
- Brown ground beef, drain and rinse.
- Preheat oven to 375 F degrees.
- Add burrito seasoning, cook according to package directions.
- Add fillings to meat mixture if you want, or add them later during layering.
- In an ungreased 9×13 glass baking pan, unroll a roll of crescent rolls.
- Layer 1/2 of the meat mixture, any fillings, 1 cup of mozzarella, 1 cup of sharp cheddar.
- Layer the rest of the meat, fillings, and cheeses.
- Cover top with another unrolled roll of crescent rolls. Tuck all edges in.
- Bake for 25-35 minutes, or until top is golden brown and flaky.
- Once done baking, remove from oven and let sit for about 15 minutes to let the cheese firm up a bit.
- Serve your hungry family and enjoy!

- Add all veggies (amounts to your own liking), meat and 2 cups of water to a crock pot.
- Add 1-2 tsp minced garlic, stir well.
- Cover and let cook 5-6 hours or until meat and veggies are all tender.
