Gingersnap Cookies

Chewy Gingersnap CookiesCookies with molasses and spices, from gingerbread men to old fashioned molasses cookies, just scream Christmas to me. As a child, I loved being able to help in the kitchen; and I especially loved decorating the cookies.

Laughter....with a Ginger

The boys and I laugh.  Laugh and joke and giggle.  I’m truly still 10 when I crack jokes and be gross with my 2 Ginger boys.  And they find their nutty mom to be a jackwagon, I’m sure.  But we try.We still laugh, but we’ve had a rough year.  Rough, long year.  Not funny.  Not happy.  Periods of no laughs.  No reason to laugh.  It was hard for me to MAKE myself laugh. I tried.  They got their laughs back.  Me?  Fake laughs, for sure.  Real ones?  Not really. Empty of good laughs....more

Homemade Ginger Ale Recipe

Soy Ginger Garlic Seafood

This recipe for Soy Garlic Ginger Seafood is one of the best things I've ever eaten...and this is coming from someone who is not a big fan of fish.  When I first had this dish, I told my husband I would eat my shoe if it was covered in this sauce!  It's quick and easy to put together and bakes up in no time.  It's the perfect weeknight meal!  Plus, you can use any type of fish or seafood that you have on hand. ...more

Green Ginger Broccoli Soup (vegan friendly)

I made my very first blended soup!  This has been a long time coming.  I got an immersion blender awhile ago to make soups, and I am only now trying it out.  I got so hooked on making smoothies that I never made soup.  I was a little weary about this soup as it is 95% veggies and not much else.  However, I was pleasantly surprised and gulped down about 3 bowls of it.  This will definitely, definitely be made again.  It was delicious and was a great detoxifier!...more
