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.
