Chewy [spicy] treats…

So with a snowy, wintry day upon us it was yet another perfect day to do some baking!
On today’s baking sheet… soft ginger cookies with pieces of crystallized ginger baked in. A simple cookie mixture that created a beautiful cracked, vintage looking edible.
This whole batch began by sifting flour, baking soda, salt, ground ginger, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, canola oil, molasses, dark brown sugar and one extra large egg were mixed together. Once combined, the flour was added into the wet ingredients. After folding in the crystallized ginger, scoops of the dough were rolled out in turbinado sugar, lightly flattened and baked until cracked and gorgeous.
Chewy, spicy and a perfect pairing with a cup of tea… the best way to endure a cold winters day!

a morning of glory [muffins]…

With the last few months pretty high on the emotions chart, it was a bit difficult to focus on much… Things are finally starting to ease back into normalcy and I thought was better to do than whip up a hearty batch of morning glory muffins for breakfast!
I had these luxurious little delights out in East Hampton and have been completely addicted since.
Chock-full-of delicious ingredients, these little domes of beauty are simple to prepare and the flavor element is incredible! For the recipe, two cups of flour, one cup of brown sugar, two teaspoons of baking soda and cinnamon, a half teaspoon of ground ginger and kosher salt are sifted and combined into a large bowl; in a separate bowl, three eggs, good vanilla, two-thirds of a cup of canola oil and one-fourth cup of orange juice are whisked together. Once the wet and dry ingredients are prepped, I cored one green apple and peeled four carrots. Both the apple and carrots were grated, and along with some coconut flakes, soaked golden raisins and wheat germ stirred into the dry mixture. As soon as everything was incorporated, I gently added in the wet mixture and mixed everything until fully combined and moistened.
The batter was scooped into a muffin tin and set to bake for twenty-five minutes at 375degrees. After cooling slightly it was time to rip open these spicy scented lovelies and enjoy with a silky cup of lady grey tea…
Couldn’t think of a better way to start off a weekday morning!
