Recipe Saturday - Gingerbread (YUM!)

Hi All,

Fall is one of my favorite seasons of the year, I love to see the leaves turning colors. I also love the weather, and most of all the comfort foods. Ever since I was a very little girl, my grandma baked gingerbread this time of year. It's a simple dessert, but it always had the house smelling heavenly, and it taste so good. I remember those days coming home from school, and having a warm piece of gingerbread, and a ice cold glass of milk waiting for me. I remember those days fondly, and I'm lucky enough to still have my grandmother around still making gingerbread. I wanted to share her recipe with all of you, I hope you will give it a try.
