Soft and Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies

Soft and Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies

Last week first big snowstorm of the year hit our area. The flurries started this morning as we rolled out of bed and didn’t stop all day. We must have at least 6 inches on the ground by the end of the day. Ughhh.

However….the best part of maternity leave though? I don’t have to leave my house! It’s pretty fabulous. The kids and I stayed in our pajamas all day, snuggled on the couch next to the fireplace and watched way too much TV. It was a much needed break from all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.
