Recently I was asked what was my secret ingredient; I thought on it for quite some time. Each flavor has a special recipe so which ingredient , if any one, would be the secret ingredient? I thought back to my childhood, all our family recipes have a pinch of this, a drop of that or just a dusting of something so there is truly no real family recipe let alone a secret ingredient. I think the answer to the question is our family “secret” would be love, caring and compassion.
As far back as I can remember Grandma, Aunt Caddy and my mom were always in the kitchen preparing for bake sales. fundraisers or just a neighbor in need. The women in my family were huggers, they hugged everyone physically and with a compassionate gesture of sharing. Luckly for me they passed that gene on....I am also a hugger with an obsessive need to feed. Some people have a need for speed well I have a need to feed. I get the biggest thrill when samplers get excited over of the product; it makes me warm all over :)
So I guess my secret ingredient is love.
A wise man, my uncle, once told me you need the right tool for the job. See back in the day when faced with an issue I would grab any tool available to correct a problem and when that didn't succeed my uncle would go to his work room and return with just the right tool for the job.
My uncle taught me well ...so when I needed a website and after checking out several options I choose Weebly; the right tool for the job. Weebly simplified the process and allowed me to create and incorporate all the criteas I wanted. They taught me to build my site through a hands on process which puts me in the drivers seat. It is my site, I built it, I maintain it and it represents my concept not some web designer's idea. Remember no one knows your product or your vision like you do.
At the end of September Weebly Carbon launched offering all sorts of apps and excellent web tools to make our life easier. I have already signed up with Shippo; an app which prints shipping labels right from my order info...no more typing....again the right tool for job. Somewhere my uncle is smiling.
As the story goes: An Italian teaching monk was preparing bread when he decided to cut some of the dough into thin strips. He made a circle with a strip then took the ends of the strip brought them to the center, gave them a quick twist and set it down over the center of the strip. He believed it was like folding his arms when he prayed.
At the end of each day the monk would give one to each student who had recited their prayers. He named these tiny breads Pretida which translates to "little reward".
