Chewy Ginger Cookies

2013-12-15 017‘Tis the season for baking cookies!    Ginger cookies are a favorite of mine these grain free cookies sweetened with coconut sugar are a great treat!

The kids and I are on school vacation!   We are off the Colorado tomorrow to see family and go home to Crested Butte for a week!   To say the kids are excited is an understatement.   When we told them we were going home for Christmas break Max said, “This is the best present I could ever get, ever!”  We have not only had the countdown for Christmas this year, but the countdown for Colorado!

This morning I was picking lemons and oranges from the trees in our backyard in California in a t-shirt and soon I will be wearing 4-5 layers while skiing in one of the most beautiful, yet ever so cold, places in the world.  I am a lucky gal.
