Spicy Fair Trade Gingerbread CookiesNo CommentsRead more
This gingerbread is a little different, and we love it this way — it’s spicy and a little sweet. The kick is thanks to the Victoria Falls Rainbow Pepper (a must-have in every fair-trader’s pantry!) The chewy but sturdy texture is created by refrigerating the dough twice — before you roll and make shapes, and after, before baking in the oven.

There’s something truly special about ice cream made with real vanilla beans. You can see the tiny black flecks and it’s aroma is intoxicating! We added fair trade ceylon cinnamon to our ice cream base for a delicate, yet complex flavor that pairs perfectly with an end-of-summer stone fruit cobbler, yum!

One Pan Gingerbread CupcakesNo CommentsRead more
Decorated in pink icing for a special Valentine’s Day treat, these cupcakes have an intense ginger flavor, which is why we like them! It offsets the sweetness of the icing. Don’t skip the fair trade ingredients — look for the Wholesome Sweeteners molasses at your local grocery and check the labels in the spice aisle.
