For example, want to go out to lunch? You bet I do!

Sure, of course you can pick the place.

Oh? That’s your suggestion? Well I think we should go here!

And of course we end up going to my choice! 😉 Any one else do this?

When it comes to cookies or dessert in general I’m all about sweet sugary goodness! Spicy eh not really my cup of tea (no pun intended). However, my Grandfather especially loves gingersnap cookies.

I love baking them for Christmas, but wanted to come up with a version I’ll enjoy too. The answer? Top those suckers with a chocolate star! nomnom!
