Gingerdoodles Cookie Recipe~ Delicious Cookies that are the Perfect Marriage Between a Snickerdoodle and a Gingersnap!
We are at the cabin this weekend! Apparently my hubs thought I had nothing to do at home and drug me up here so he could sheet rock the basement. I mean I don’t have presents to wrap, presents to buy, treats to make, my marbles to find that I seem to have lost lately or anything! So I decided to tackle some Christmas baking up here!
On the menu for treats are my favorite Peanut Butter Blossoms with a Rolo in them or maybe I should really say they are the hub’s favorite. Seems like I say everything is his favorite when it comes to cookies! I’m also making these Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Pretzels. I made these and took them to work a few years ago for an employee meeting and they just kept passing them back and forth so I might have to spoil them with some more. I still need to tackle these adorable snowman too!
Back to the whole we are at the cabin sheet rocking the basement. We were going to do a little update on the upstairs this winter in the main living area and kitchen. The cabin hasn’t been updated since 1970 when it was built. We have a lovely pink bathtub, maroon linoleum, blinds that don’t shut anymore. You get the point! The first few years of having the cabin we just made do but I decided it’s time to update since our house is done we obviously need another project. Or not. Well, long story short is we ended up getting water in the basement this summer and had some mold issues which entailed ripping apart two walls and the update took a turn and went downstairs.
This is completely ok with me since this is where we sleep and it was gross. Dark, dreary, 1970s paneling and I’m so excited to give it a face lift! No more paneling, new flooring, new paint and white trim. Woohoo! The only bad thing is that it’s going to make the upstairs look twice as bad now! Before the upstairs was the nice part. Guess next year we will have to start the face lift that we were first planning!
