Homemade Ginger Cookies and French Bread…


Today’s weather was partly drizzle-y and gray.

A perfect day to put a pot of homemade spaghetti sauce on to simmer,

and then have 3 year old granddaughter over to help me do some baking.

I’ve been wanting to bake the “most divine ginger cookies ever” since I saw them on

Kimberly Taylor’s gorgeous food photo blog, and today I finally did.

I think they are.

Divine that is.

A bit crispy on the outside and moist and chewy on the inside.





Then we made some homemade french bread from Maria’s recipe.

This has become a fairly frequent favorite at my house.

It’s great alongside spaghetti and a green salad, or a big pot of homemade soup.



                    Both recipes are fairly easy to make and definitely worth a try…just click on the links above.

And of course, having a cute little 3 year old, blonde, blue-eyed sous chef by your side,

makes the whole baking experience even better.


Still following,



  1. What a cute little helper you have, Elizabeth. I wish I didn't love cookies and bread so much, those both look so good!

  2. Beautiful photography and such yummies. Makes me want to get in the kitchen and BAKE. Hopped over here from A Holy Experience. Glad I did. I hope to come back. And I like your music. Sweetly blesses.
    wishing grace....
