  1. The lemon glazed gingerbread sounds amazing. I love the picture of the food vendor, the colors are just amazing.

    Have a great week.

    1. Hi Felicia. If the gingerbread recipe comes out well, I'll post the recipe on the blog. Enjoy your week. :)

  2. I also want to see the gingerbread recipe, that sounds soooo good.
