A day off of work and Soft Ginger Molasses Cookies

Oh My GOSH. I made the most delicious Soft Ginger Molasses Cookies. They are soft and chewy and just delicious! I’ll post the recipe at the bottom of this post, but here is a picture to hold you over during my ramblings:

Soft Ginger Molasses Cookies

I had today off of work so I spent my day being a little homemaker-bunny rabbit, cleaning, cooking, and running errands. It was a great day and would have been better if I actually exercised!

Currently, I have a Healiter Mexican Taco Lasagna in the oven, which I got from Sugar Free Mom. I made a few adjustments and will post the recipe if it turns out good! All I know right now is that corn tortillas are so freaking good.Image

Following dinner I will most likely be eating one of these little gems:Image

…and possibly a cookie in a mug (it’s chocolate Monday, what else do you expect?)

    • i love it so much! you can barely taste the difference, and you use half as much as you would with normal sugar, so even though it’s twice the price..it evens out in the end! i totally recommend it!
