It is time. Time for The Secret Recipe Club. Quickly becoming one of my favorite parts of the month. It all starts off when I receive my assignment. This month’s task was to find a recipe at the lovely blog Foodness Gracious (which by the way, absolutely love the title, how clever!). I always start out by scrolling through the recipes and writing a list of potentials. As usual, my list was long, I finally decided on the Sticky Gingerbread. I am so glad I did because I have fallen in love, in love with Gingerbread! I usually make the obligatory gingerbread boys at Christmas but this was different, melt in your mouth, pure deliciousness! I am already to make it again, and I haven’t even washed the pan from the first batch. Gingerbread is not just for Christmas anymore! Thank you so much Gerry for this fabulous recipe!
