I never really craved ginger. Honestly, when I see whole ginger at the grocery store, it kind of freaks me out. But recently, I’ve become a ginger-lover. (No, not that kind of ginger.)
How it began:
I think I can blame gingerade kombucha.
Warning: You’ll fall in love with this, and then your wallet will be empty even faster than the bottle of deliciousness. Please ignore the packaged-trans-fat-laiden-frosting to the right of the tea. It’s been in there for months, and it will never get used.
Then I stumbled across these:
Trader Joe’s Ginger Cats. They are ad.ict.ting. That’s why I bagged them up into single servings. Yes. I’m a crazy person, but sometimes that’s what it takes in order to prevent the “one-cookie-here-one-cookie-there” problem.
Then I sealed the deal with this:
Angela’s Gingerbread. So delicious. I ran into Eric’s roommate at the auto parts store, and he’s a vegan. For some reason, I felt the need to make some sort of vegan baked good for him. I think I just feel like vegans get negelcted when people offer around baked goods. So there you go. Sorry for the bad picture, but I didn’t have time to drag out my lightbox. #Fail
Normally I like to tweak recipes, but with Angela’s I don’t even mess with them! Eric, his roommate, and his friend all raved about this. Eric and I ate ours with TJ’s pumpkin ice cream and some pumpkin spice coffee. YUM.
