I think I've mentioned that this has been a crazy December! One I don't care to repeat any time soon... But, in spite of it all, I did actually manage to make homemade gingerbread for my 12 Things in 12 Months :) I made cookies with the kids and after making it I realized there was a method to the madness with my Grandma and her decision to make the box mix for the houses. The homemade stuff is a bit softer and doesn't hold up as well, in addition to being a lot more work. So, I won't be making homemade gingerbread for the houses, but I am glad I made homemade for the cookies, because it does taste better :) I found molasses to be kind of a pain to work with- sticky and not agreeable.
I still haven't successfully made homemade bread.... and it's weighing heavily on my mind. I'm pretty much always up for a challenge, and have a hard time admitting defeat....
