I love to bake and cook and I’m always looking for new recipes & techniques to challenge me☺️.

I have amazing grandchildren that I love spending time with. We love to hike in nature and a couple of them actually like hanging out with me in the kitchen!!

I strive everyday to seek God and His will in my life. 1 Corinthians 15:10 “By the grace of God, I am what I am.”

  • Gingerbread Cake With Lemon Sauce

    I enjoy gingerbread cake, but I’ve never been a fan of molasses.  When I make gingerbread cookies, or gingerbread houses, I always substitute molasses with dark corn syrup.  Using dark brown sugar in this recipe along with the warm delicious spices, gives this cake the iconic gingerbread taste.  It’s so moist and yummy!
