On a recent Sunday we were feeling particularly bold (and free of other obligations), so we took the opportunity to spend most of the afternoon cooking a double batch of winter minestrone soup and baking some ginger cookies.
|Evidently, any mixer we got had to be red according to Julia. Makes for good pictures.|
|The recipe called for chopped crystallized ginger. We would probably reduce the amount used next time as it’s a bit strong.|
|Sugar-coated goodness before baking|
|As an unnamed mother would say, “That’s some healthy s#*t”|
|The double batch kept us well fed at the end of many long days of working for Walt and Roger.|
|The garlic bruschetta pairs well with the hearty soup on the coldest of winter nights here in LA. We highly recommend adding some basil-infused olive oil before serving.|
