Do you love gingerbread or hate it? I feel like gingerbread is one of those all in or hate types of food. Sorta like cilantro. Personally, I think gingerbread is the bomb diggity. How can you not love molasses (I will admit it smells a little funky) and ginger? I’m actually serious. If you hate either items let me know why. I’m alway interested in why someone finds a food I adore awful.

Wanna know a food I hate? Fish. Why? It tastes like fish (lame answer) and has a weird texture.

Ok, enough rambling. Do you want to see the recipe for these amazing cookies? They are gingerbready (which I’m claiming is a word) and stuffed with dark chocolate chips and crystallized ginger.
