"onlymoira could I possibly get your original gingerbread and the pizza crust recipes? Been trying to message you numerous times...think this one might go thru as I don't think any of the others did makeit...sorry if they did as they'd be numerous thanks please send to email@example.com"
"I have not made this recipe yet, but I am looking forward to making it with my grandson! After reading reviews for this and many other recipes, I would suggest that folks who are having problems with blandness might do well to check the freshness of the spices they are using. After a year in a warm cupboard, often the spices that are the star of the recipe may need to be replaced with fresh ones. It can make all the difference in the world!"
"My family and I love gingerbread but this recipe just seemed off. I followed recipe exact, but was very bland to us. I ended up throwing half of it out."
"Very quick, easy and delicious! It can be made with pantry ingredients and is so festive for the season."
"So super simple & classic!! My wonderful husband dreams of gingerbread and I love to make things from scratch...I hadn't made my nan's traditional gingerbread this year because it is NOT a simple recipe; while classic it is VERY involved :o)This recipe was mixed up in literally less than 5 minutes and in the oven in less than 10. I had to distract my hubby while the cake cooled so we went for a short walk and WOW was this gingerbread a terrific treat to return to!Definitely will be making it again!"
