Our Gingerbread House, in its simplicity, expresses what we are. A pretty house with a heart at the entrance door because in our home love will never be missing. Two gingerbread men at the entrance, simple and scented decorations because sometimes simplicity is forgotten. The scent of the star anise on the roof and the cinnamon close to the door remind us of the atmosphere of Christmas and the magic of small things.

Gingerbread has been traditional in England since Medieval times, but only became popular in Elizabethan times. Elizabeth the 1st is credited with the idea of decorating gingerbread when she ordered biscuits to be made in the shape of courtiers. Elaborately decorated gingerbread became synonymous with all things fancy and elegant in England. The gold leaf that was often used to decorate gingerbread cookies led to the expression ‘to take the gilt off of gingerbread.’

This gingerbread house is actually the first one I have ever made. I’ve wanted to make one for a couple years now but always seemed to run low on time. This kit was great, as it was already pre-baked and all I had to do was assemble it. I was so excited that not only was it a time saver, it was so simple to follow the instructions in the Wilton gingerbread house kit! The meaning behind my gingerbread house is a beachy warm Christmas. Being that I am from Melbourne, Australia, our Christmases are hot rather than cold and icy so I decided to represent what a true Aussie Christmas looks like to me.

8 Flavor-Filled Bake Sale Recipes to Bake for a Cause

October 23rd, 2017 by Lee Mooney Egan

8-Flavor Filled Bake Sale Recipes

Earlier this fall, I was walking out of our church and happened upon several friends gathered around a table of sweets overflowing with little bags and bundles of various treats from oatmeal cookies and chocolate brownies to rice cereal squares and another cereal sweet snack fondly known as “puppy chow” (my daughter’s favorite).  I learned that the bake sale was inspired by a few teens who wanted to send relief to the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

The word spread quickly, resulting in an abundant selection of family favorites begging for a buyer to support the teens’ mission.  A familiar scene no doubt was happening outside churches, schools, fields and store fronts in many towns across the nation, raising money not only for hurricane victims, but soccer teams, marching bands, class trips, dance troops, football teams and a myriad of other causes, banking on the draw of yummy, home-baked sweets and the big hearts of friends and neighbors.
