Soft Espresso Gingersnaps

Soft Espresso Gingersnaps | My Edible Journey

I know that for some, the notion of a “soft gingersnap” is oxymoronic. Gingersnaps are meant to “snap.” To be crisp and firm. I’m a little more liberal in my use of the word.

Cranberry Clementine Marmalade | My Edible Journey

I’m not a fan of buying stuff for the sake of stuff. Gifts, no matter how small, need to have meaning. So when I got word that we were doing an exchange at a party we’re going to ($5 or less), I knew I was going to make something.

Coleslaw with Miso Dressing |My Edible Journey

I *think* it’s safe to say that the weather is turning cool.  It sure looks that way this week.  We’ve turned on the furnace.  That means something, right?  Though I do hope that it is still nice enough for a pleasant evening of Hallowe’en trick or treating.

It’s natural that when the weather turns cool, one’s culinary thoughts turn to things like warm breads, hearty stews and crunchy coleslaw.  Wait… what? Continue reading

Cinnamon Snaps

Cinnamon Snaps|My Edible JourneyEvery time I get knee-deep in autumn inspiration, it turns warm again.  Not hot, thankfully, but the kids are in shorts and a couple of our ceiling fans are on.  But it’s too late for me.  I’m hopelessly giddy that October is here.  Thanksgiving is right around the corner (Canadian blogger, remember), the leaves have begun to turn, and my favourite month has arrived, kicking off my favourite quarter of the year!
