Homemade Gingerbread Recipe

This homemade gingerbread recipe is soooo good!

Christmas is THIS week, and I’m so excited! If you still need some inspiration for decorating, check out this post. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, Christmas is so much more fun when you have a child. Last Christmas we spent in America with my family and it was so fun to show Jared my family’s Christmas traditions. Jared got to visit Mount Baker and see the snow (and I stayed home because my friends, I hate being cold, and wet). We visited Great Wolf Lodge and had dinner at Red Robin. Oh, and afterwards, we went to Hawaii, because why not?

This year we are spending Christmas with Jared’s family. It’s fun for Jared and I to start our own traditions as a new family! This year I decided to do stockings because it’s just extra fun. Since Christmas is on a Wednesday and that’s the day our church has our mid-week prayer meeting, our Pastor has planned a fellowship/game night after church. Last time we had a game night, Jared organized a trivia quiz. It was really fun, especially so because Dylan and I won. He’s going to do another one this time, so we’re all really looking forward to it!

I’m bringing a few things for Christmas dinner, and I think I’ll have to add this gingerbread to the list!

I love homemade gingerbread. It’s so warm, flavorful, and just perfect for the holidays (but let’s be honest… I will definitely make it anytime of the year!). It tastes cozy doesn’t it? I think so anyways!

This would be so good with spiced apple cider, peppermint hot chocolate, or eggnog (speaking of which… can NZ please jump on the eggnog bandwagon?!). Add custard (hot or cold!) or eat it as-is, it’s delicious either way.
