A few weeks ago I volunteered at our local food bank. We have a program called back pack buddies which offers food for children who don't get 3 meals a day. The purpose of this program is to insure that the child will not go hungry over the weekend. It is an incredible act of giving and I'm glad I got to be a part of it.

So I haven't posted this in so long because I lost the recipe. I still haven't found it, but the OCD in me still has to post this recipe.
Made: January 17, 2014
Thoughts: It was alright.
Verdict: Make again? Probably not.

I have a very good friend whom I met in ballet class when we were in junior high. She now lives in Germany with her husband and brand new baby boy. I sent them a little baby gift congratulating them on their new addition. I'm so happy for them and know they will be incredible parents!

2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

4 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
pure maple syrup, for serving

Thoughts: It was good, but still needs some tweaking.

This was definitely something I would recommend everyone to do at least once in their lifetime. Each day for an entire year, I wrote down something that I was grateful for. Some days were awesome and created a list of things that I was grateful for. Other days were hard and I really had to search for the good in that particular day. But what I found out was that even on the hard days, I could find something good.
