It’s that time of the year again!!
Who does not like gingerbread? The delicious smell, the soft chewiness with just a hint of crunch, the flavor of Christmas spices – who can resist?
I am somewhat addicted to building Gingerbread Mansions and creating Gingerbread People and Stars. It started with a Martha Stewart article I read years ago.
