Secret Ingredient

“The Secret Ingredient”
I like to cook and bake.  One of my favorite breakfast foods to make is pancakes. I have a recipe I use that I like.  Because I’m mildly lactose intolerant I add Lactaid milk instead of regular milk.  I like putting strawberry jam and cinnamon on the pancakes.I make pancakes for breakfast sometimes.  
We had a pancake mix recently that my girls used to make Japanese pancakes.  They didn’t  use the whole box.One of my daughters decided to make the pancake mix for breakfast.She followed the recipe on the box and ate them.  
Yet after, she told me they didn’t come out as good and sweet as my pancakes that I make from scratch.  
It warmed my heart. 
I told her, “There’s a secret ingredient.  It’s Love.”  

Ok, so it’s not a secret. 

We all know that when we put love into what we are doing it makes what we’re doing that much more special.  ?

Soldier Portraits

Darla Dixon organized a group of artists who will create no-charge compassionate portraits for the families who have lost a loved one in Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation Enduring Freedom.
