Big Soft Ginger Cookies
Super yum! Addicted. I would chill the dough before rolling in sugar. They are still great if you don't but they turned out a little thin. Next time I plan on using a higher quality molasses and see if it changes the flavor.

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style
Made this for company when I knew we'd need a lot of snacks around. Was trying to make something nice for my friends who aren't as "adventuresome" as me. Even though the ingredient list is unassuming, the flavor is incredible! Be sure to roast your garlic ahead. Friends will keep asking you for your recipe.

Sandra's Persimmon Pudding
Very thin, sweet, and a lot of work for not a very good product. I think I'll make persimmon bread next time I have them laying around.
