My lovely daughter loves making my grandmother's recipe for molasses cookies, and might I say she actually has a knack for making molasses cookies. In the recipe it calls for...you guessed it ...ginger....yum.
One of my most favourite desserts is a ginger cake that my mother makes. You need to eat it when it is warm and with some whipped cream....Double YUM. Just add a few peaches on the top of the whipped cream and you have now reached dessert heaven. Yes, now the gods are looking down at you.
Now I am not only saying that I am a dessertaholic(perhaps sometimes I am), I also enjoy ginger tea. I never even thought about making tea out of ginger root until a nurse(this is my shout out to Amanda, miss you) that I worked with suggested it. So I went home and made the tea, and added a little honey.
I also like the pickled ginger that comes with the wonderful sushi that I get from Sushi Tonari in Bedford. So very yummy.
So there you have it. My happy for today is the most versatile root, ginger.
:o) There is no Gilligan in this happy...
