Pumpkin Ginger Cupcakes

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!

Hot Tea

Ginger-Turmeric Herbal Tea

Rating: Unrated
If you are having trouble including these anti-inflammatory spices in your diet, here is an alternative to supplements. Actually quite tasty! I believe this tea is popular in Okinawa, Japan. Just remember turmeric stains. I make mine in an old mason jar, wrapped in an old tea towel! Turmeric is used for medicinal purposes in India.

Homemade Pickled Ginger (Gari)

Rating: Unrated
Pickled ginger is called gari or amazu shoga in Japanese. It's served with sushi or sashimi and eaten between different kinds of sushi. It helps to clean your taste buds and enhance the flavors. It's also great with Century Eggs - a Chinese delicacy. You can find prepared pickled ginger in pink or white at most Asian markets but I preferred to make my own and share with family and friends.

Crystallized or Candied Ginger

Crystallized ginger can be served with espresso and cake or champagne and fruit, coated in bittersweet chocolate and rolled in hazelnuts or macadamia nuts. It can be chopped or julienned to use in or as a garnish for pastries, pumpkin pies, stewed fruits cookies, and many other desserts. Store in an airtight container in a cool and dark place.

This is a great sauce that is very versatile. I like it best with chicken or shrimp, but you can use it for vegetables, or even steak.

This is a healthy and complete winter food. For thicker soup, add a cubed potato with the squash. Also good served with some sour cream or yogurt.

Thai Ginger Chicken (Gai Pad King)

Rating: Unrated
My family loved ordering this dish at our local Thai restaurant, but then they closed down for some unknown reason (they were always busy). So I decided to recreate this traditional dish at home. My husband says it's just like the restaurant...maybe even better? Please note that some people like to eat the ginger, while others don't but like the flavor it gives off. You can easily double this recipe to serve a larger it makes great leftovers.

Hot Ginger Milk

I love this recipe for every day, especially for winter. It is a tiny bit spicy and more of a sugary thing! If you try it, please share it!
