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!

don’t get saucy with me!!

So today I decided on trying my hand at making my own new twisted barbecue sauce… Pretty simple, and pretty boozy!
To whip up this concoction, I used ketchup, tomato paste, brown sugar, molasses, honey, cider vinegar, dijon mustard, some hardcore booze, garlic, onions and a bit of spicy stuff for some zip…
I started by sautéing the onions and garlic, then added ketchup, water and tomato paste and simmered. After about fifteen minutes, I added the remaining ingredients, stirred, brought to a low boil and then back down to a simmer. I continued to stir frequently until thickened a bit.
Into a container to store and the rest as a marinade for tomorrow nights dinner… YUM!!!
