Teach Me Momma . . .



On Christmas Eve day Hannah asked me to teach her how to make Ginger Snaps. I feel at peace knowing that some day she'll make them for her babies.

{and yes, I look super nasty in this picture and cropped it tightly because my bottom was looking big, thanks to said Ginger Snaps.}

Someday, there will be a lucky guy who wins the hand of lovely Hannah, only to discover that she can make ginger snaps and egg braid bread. Perhaps even jambalaya...

I can just imagine the sweetness of that moment, rolling and dipping those delicious balls of dough with your daughter. She is such a treasure!

So off the subject, but how do you dust those bowls on top of your cabinets????

I have to confess that your bottom is not the only that's gotten bigger due to gingersnaps! Thanks to your great recipe, my entire family has eaten LOADS of gingersnaps! We have made them 3 times this Christmas season! I will say many did go on Christmas plates that went to neighbors, but oh, how we have eaten alot! Thanks so much for sharing that wonderful recipe!

Love your hair. That's what my hair looked like today too... and it felt great. Ginger snaps...I'm sure I've eaten over 30 the past couple of weeks, or 40.

I'm with LJB and Apis. I'm making a third batch today to share with family for New Year's because I'm still craving them after two batches being shared and scarfed down! Bellies and tushes agree, it's a fave around here! So glad Hannah wants in on the action, she's growing up so fast! Beautiful family, wonderful traditions and a thoughtful, amazing lady leading her brew! You go girl!

Lori,
Oops! Am I supposed to dust those bowls? :)

{Actually, I usually just wash them when I get them down to use them. Otherwise, they remain dusty and out of reach.}
