We live in zone 6a and I have been gardening and cooking for years. This blog is an opportunity for me to share with you my success and those failures that come about on occasion. Plus, I want to hear from all the gardeners and bakers and cooks out there and learn from you. Feel free to share your ideas.

Tuesday's With Dorie: Baking With Julia-Gingerbread Baby Cakes
One of the December recipes for TWDBWJ is Gingerbread Baby Cakes. The host is Karen of Karen’s Kitchen Stories. So visit her site for the recipe.
It is chock full of molasses and ginger.Although the recipe called for 2 cups of molasses, I only had 1 and 1/2 cups in the house. So I made up the difference with a 1/2 cup of real maple syrup. Not sure if I would make this again. It is a very dense cake and almost too overpowering in taste.
