Ginger Spice.

This is a fresh new week.

I decided to start my week on Tuesday instead of Monday.

Only because last Monday was the worst Monday of my entire life.

Today, we hate Monday.

Tuesday is the new Monday, only without all those consequences.

I kinda, sorta, maybe got this new job a month ago.


It involves me, covered from head to toe in flour, baking cookies, cakes, etc. etc. with a fancy boss lady.

She’s super nice.

I mean, did y’all know I like to bake?


Is it that obvious?


Tis’ the season fo’ gingerbread.


Ummmmm yea…

  1. I think there may be a mistake in the flax egg portion of this recipe- is it suppose to read 1 T ground flax and 3 T water? I tried it with 3 tablespoons of ground flax and 1 tbs. of water and that was one thick egg. Realizing it might be a mistake, I added 2 more tbs. of water, but the cake never seemed to bake- the middle was still raw after an hour in the oven….

      Lisa, I am so so sorry for that typo, yes, you were right, 1 T. ground flax and 3T water is the correct amount.
