I wanted to add that this is a spicier cookie than your regular gingerbread or ginger snap even.  I love it though.  The longer you let the dough set the spicier it gets yummmmm

This reminds me that this year (or last, for that matter) I haven't made my (semi)traditional "Tronchetto di Natale" (rolled up sponge cake in the form of a Yule log with a chestnut jam and whipped cream filling, covered in chocolate "bark"). Quite how I'm going to square that with the intention of losing weight, I don't know, but I could always try.

That sounds too good to not make though.  This Christmas was particularly bad for me with eating.  I wound up making 2 flans to serve a whole group of people and I swear I ate half myself.  Of course 2 birthdays in between our holidays didn't help either.

Finally found a 0 calorie drink that doesn't have artificial sweeteners that I would like.  I'm up a couple pounds myself and I need to drop that before I have to get my driver's license photo taken ;)

Yeah?  Spill it, Squigs.  What have you found?  I'd love to get away from artificial sweetners, but all I've got is tea - iced or hot, and water.

La Croix sparkling water.  A friend of mine showed them to me.  They are just sparkling water with natural flavors.

Cool.  I'll have to trot out and pick some up.  They are actually stocked within 20 miles of me.

Thanks, Squigs!
