Cold and wintry outside - warm and spicy inside

What to do when the chill of January gets to be too much? Get in the kitchen and get baking! For Toucie, cold weather is Gingerbread weather.

We love the recipe in Diana Carey and Judy Large's Festivals, Family, and Food. It's the lemon and orange zest, I think, that makes the gingerbread extra awesome. Oh, and the cardamom...mmmmm.

Molasses is a key ingredient in gingerbread and it can be overpowering. I sometimes substitute sorghum, but I'd love to find a milder tasting molasses....anybody have a recommendation?

This is the fun part.

This is the hard part. 

This is what happens next.

Then, finally....that's what we were going for...
