Recipe Review

Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays

         I read everything I could find on gingerbread, and I learned that early recipes for it were found in Greece and China. I was really surprised because I thought it came from Europe. Queen Elizabeth loved the idea of decorating these cookies.  Today, we usually make gingerbread cookies during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Historically, they were made it all year around.
         Ree’s gingerbread cookies look adorable. She has a great house cookie cutter. I thought this was going to be a recipe to make a gingerbread house, not an individual house cookie. This is a whole lot easier than constructing a structure. If you want to try something new – these look good.

       I am writing this on Sunday afternoon. It was predicted that we would get around four inches of snow today. Thankfully, all we have so far is a dusting.  The dogs love any amount of snow and have been outside four or five times. They just go outside and eat the snow and guard the yard.

Snow tastes wonderful

Yum!  Yum!
