Ginger Cinnamon Molasses Cookies – 2 Ways

I don’t think I have ever baked cookies as frequently as I am doing this year. Last weekend, I baked these Ginger Cinnamon Molasses Cookies with my little elf. It was crunchy, crumbly and the ratio of ginger with cinnamon was just perfect. At first, I was a little worried if Avyan will approve of these cookies because he wants chocolate or frosting all the time. Thankfully, he loved it, although he thought they had chocolate because of the color. You see, I made the dough on the previous day while he was in school. Clever mommy act, right?

Some dishes get ready so quickly that you wonder if there was any cooking involved at all. Such recipes come super handy when you want something homemade yet, you are not in a mood to cook.

On such hangover mornings, I like spicy warm meal with a zing and then later, a nap perhaps. Well, getting a snooze would be close to impossible but this Shrimp and Mushroom in Ginger Lemon Sauce is always workable, if…

Summer is happening here in full swing. I not only feel it but I can also hear it. The hustle bustle in the neighborhood, pools are never empty, kids running around screaming and playing almost all day long. This unquestionably screams summer vacation. It does get a little too noisy at times but I love the long daylight and even though it feels like the heat can nearly burn the skin, the wind fortunately helps us stay calm in between. We have few things planned out for us this summer but let’s see how far that goes. For now, let’s take out…

I always feel that after a vacation, I will be reluctant to enter the kitchen but it somehow turns out to be just the opposite. I only get more excited! It’s been a couple of days since we came back from our dream-came-true trip and I have loads to share with you. Hopefully, I will soon be done editing the gazillion photos that we captured.
