Let’s Cheers with this delicious and simple to make Golden milk with Chai spices.
2 cups Nut milk of your choice
2 tsp Turmeric powder
1/2 tsp Ground cinnamon
Pinch of Ground ginger

Whisk everything in a small saucepan except the syrup over medium heat until combined and simmering. Simmer 1 to 2 minutes to infuse the spices. Pour into a mug and sweeten with Maple syrup.
Christmas table can’t without mince pie or gingerbread cookies, right? So, I’m going to make gingerbread this year. Wish you like it! 🙂
This gingerbread was reduced sweetness to suit young children. You can use the gluten-free flour to substitute the plain flour.
It is fun and exciting to make this cookie with your children, wish they won’t make a big mess around your kitchen. 🙂 Also, you can teach them to make a little hole on the angel’s or father Christmas’s head before baking. Tie a ribbon through the hole and hang on the Christmas tree for decoration.
The recipe was inspired by Isa Chandra Moskowitz
Vegan Molasses Gingerbread
1/3 cup Vegetable oil
1/2 cup Unrefined brown sugar
3 tbsp Molasses
1/4 cup Nut milk of your choice
1 cup Wholewheat plain flour or use gluten-free flour
1 cup Quinoa flour or buckwheat flour
1/4 tsp Baking soda
1/2 tsp Baking powder
Pinch of Pink Sea salt
1 tsp Mixed spice, or 1/2 tsp each of ground nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp Ground ginger
In a large bowl whisk together oil and sugar. Add molasses and soymilk. The molasses and soymilk won’t really blend with the oil but that’s ok.
Sieve all the dry ingredients in the milk mixture. When they all mix well combined until a stiff dough is formed. Wrap in cling wrap and chill for an hour or up to 3 days in advance.
Preheat oven to 350°F/175°C/155°C in a fan oven. Lightly grease your cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
On a lightly floured surface roll the dough out to a little less than 1/4 inch thick. Cut out the shapes with your favourite cookie cutters and use a thin spatula to gently place on cookie sheets. If you are using them to decorate a tree or something, remember to punch a hole in their heads before baking. Bake for 8 minutes.
Remove from oven and let them cool for 2 minutes on the baking sheet then move to a cooling rack. Wait until they are completely cool before icing. But I just put few white chocolate chips for a simple decorate.

Since I made the hot-cross buns on good Friday, I get the craving to something sweet again.
A few days ago, the weather forecast said Sunday will have rain. Then we’re not willing (but have to) to cancel our annual barbecue party. Surprisingly, we saw the sun shining through the curtain in this morning. Although it is still a bit of windy and chilly. Nevertheless, it still sunny though.
