gingerbread houseI love it when my friend Erin drops by as she always comes with a new craft or cooking idea for us to try together. Yesterday, she and her brother, Mitch came over and we spent time chatting, drinking hot chocolate and making toffee together (recipe will be shared in the next post). After Mitch left, Erin unpacked the bag that she had brought with her. To my surprise and delight, she pulled out two tiny gingerbread houses (actually, they were made from graham crackers and held together with sugar syrup) and all of the supplies needed to decorate them with!
