Away with my winnings

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.


  1. Congratulations on your winnings! Those cookies sound sooo good! I love ginger snap cookies. :o)

  2. Welcome back and have fun crunching cookies!

  3. Yay--glad you received them! I had emailed their rep a couple of times and hadn't heard back, so glad the package made it to you safely. And glad you are enjoying them! :D

  4. Michelle,
    Thanks! The cookies were really yummy, and I think they do mail order. :)

    Thank you. My stomach is starting to rebel and say ouch.

    Oh yes, we've been enjoying the cookies too much. Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

  5. Welcome back!
    I look forward to this upcoming year of posts!

  6. Those Ginger Snappers sound delicious! I love ginger. I will need to try to de-gluten these bad boys :)

  7. Welcome back! And congrats on the cookies; they sound yummy.

    What, Birch Bay...dark and rainy? I don't believe it...LOL.

    Vancouver is always fun though.

  8. Lucky you! Those look like good cookies to have won.

    Excited to hear about Vancouver.

    Happy Holidays!

  9. France,
    Thanks for your comment!

    I'm sure you'll be able to do it! It will be worth the effort to have a great gluten-free gingersnap.

    Are you saying you've been to Birch Bay? :D Vancouver was fun, but not as much fun as it would have been if it weren't pouring.

    The cookies are a little too good, I'm afraid, and I've eaten way too many. Self control and vacations don't go well together.
