    Gingerbread Loaf

    Baker's Canyon

    I made this gingerbread loaf last Christmas. It’s a great alternative to gingerbread cookies, but I did grow up with ginger, hard for me to hate. This recipe was given to me by a friend, and she’s been using it for years. I do not know where I got it, but it is delicious. The texture is a cross between bread and cake. It was soft, but not too moist. Nice firm and delicious exterior. We used the square pan instead of a loaf pan, and we had to take it earlier than described. Easy and good.

    Booking Through Thursday – Catalog

    Do you use any of the online book-cataloguing sites, like Library Thing or Shelfari? Why or why not? (Or . . . do you have absolutely no idea what I’m talking to?? (grin)If not an online catalog, do you use any other method to catalog your book collection? Excel spreadsheets, index cards, a notebook, anything? – BTT

    Yes, I have an accounts at All Consuming, Bibliophil, Library Thing, Shelfari, and Good Reads. That is also more or less the order of use. I’ve been on AllConsuming and Bibliophil for about three years. AC is more for keeping all the books, movies, etc I consume. Bibliophil has all the books I own, but let’s me add books I’ve read as well. I do not own a lot of books which is why I don’t use LibraryThing or Shelfari very much. I update them only when I have bought notable new books.
