My Grandpa Jack was quite a character. He loved to stop by to visit, have a meal, and talk a little bit. One of his favorite times to do this was near the holiday season, when the house would fill with the aroma of these sweet Molasses Cookies. The warm spices warm your soul, and they are the perfect accompaniment to a cup of tea or coffee. The taste of these cookies reminds me a bit of Chai tea…so I have a serious affection for them. Grandpa Jack never left without his bucket of cookies this time of year! Continue reading “Grandpa Jack’s Molasses Cookies: Sentimental Sunday” »
I love this time of year, because when I am out and about I can find pumpkin-flavored EVERYTHING. Pumpkin is one of my favorite fall flavors. But, in our home, we use pumpkin quite a lot throughout the whole year. Pumpkin is a great source of vitamin A, fiber, and beta-carotene. I find pumpkin soothing to my stomach and easy to eat. The flavor is fantastic, and when combined with warm spices…really has such a comfy feel! I keep canned pumpkin in my cupboard, as well as fresh pumpkin puree in my freezer in the years when our pumpkin crop does well.
