We've been on a little vacation up in Birch Bay, Wash., near the Canadian border. Someone gave us a time-share condo for five days, and we headed North. I barely looked at the computer so I'm feeling very behind in my blog reading, and writing, but I wanted to post a quick THANK YOU to Ricki from Diet Dessert and Dogs for recently hosting a giveaway and randomly selecting me as the winner. The day before we left on our vacation, a box filled with cookies arrived at our house. I had no idea there would be so many cookies! There were boxes and packages of the most delicious cookies imaginable. I ate two from one of the small packs immediately, and they were perfectly crunchy and delicious.
I brought one of the larger boxes with us — the ginger snappers, and they are a ginger-lovers dream cookie. They are fragrant and spicy, with bits of ginger all through them. These cookies were made just for me — not too sweet, and gingerlicious.
The cookies are made in Toronto by New Moon Kitchen. I love them. Here's the ingredient list from the ginger snappers box: organic spelt flour, blackstrap molasses, pure sunflower oil, organic evaporated cane juice, ginger, unrefined cane sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, sea salt, spices. Two cookies contain 6 grams of fat, 70 mg of sodium, 2 grams of fiber, 6 grams of sugar, 3 grams of protein. (The ingredients and nutritional information vary according to the cookie flavor.)
Hope everyone celebrating Christmas had a wonderful, peaceful holiday. I'll be back soon with tales of our adventures in dark, rainy Birch Bay, and in Vancouver, where we found lovely things to eat at a Buddhist Chinese restaurant.
