Delicious, light and fluffy! These taste of Fall, and the crystallized ginger gives then a lovely little zing. Even people who don't like pumpkin love these cupcakes. These disappear as fast as I can set them out!

Asian Ginger Dressing

Rating: 4.5 stars 482
Terrific salad dressing for all salads - especially great for use on cabbage salads. Everyone who has had the dressing wants the recipe.

Warm Lemon, Honey, and Ginger Soother

Rating: 5 stars 9
This tangy infusion was inspired by a combination of Indian, Egyptian, and Costa Rican wisdom for soothing the common cold. Make a pot in the morning when you are not feeling well and drink throughout the day, reheating by the mugful as needed. My husband and I keep these ingredients on hand throughout the winter just because we like it. For children, add a splash of orange juice to cool it down.

Quick and easy gingered carrot salad. I think it tastes best after 24 hours.
Ginger Rhubarb Crisp
Rating: Unrated 60
A tangy crisp with a hint of ginger and a nice crunch to the topping. The custard filling is soft and creamy, yet holds together beautifully. This makes a large crisp - great to take to a potluck or party.
