If November is ruled by all-things pumpkin, then I’m pretty sure that December is ruled by all things peppermint and gingerbread. Last year, I made Peppermint Sugar Cookie Bars, (wow, exactly a year ago – that actually wasn’t planned) so this year I went for Gingerbread Bars, and I wasn’t disappointed! These bars are full of spice, they’re soft – landing somewhere between a bread and a brownie, and they’re wonderfully seasonal.
Makes about 24 bars
2 cups flour
2 tsp ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
10 tbsp butter, softened
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
7 1/2 tbsp sugar, divided
1/4 cup molasses

Now, I’m excited to introduce you to Madi from And So I Did! Madi is a newlywed living in Arkansas who blogs about her life.
1. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I wanted a way to get back into writing. I also wanted a space where I could share my opinions and have them be okay!
2. What is your go-to dessert recipe?
I don’t have a go-to dessert recipe… I love trying new things and try to keep pushing myself out of the box. Next up is Macaroons!
3. Tell me about your favorite blog post to date.
My favorite blog post to date is “Cherished Memories” I wrote about the time I got to spend with my grandpa before he passed away and all the adventures we too. They are some of the best memories I have.
4. What’s the best thing about the state you live in?
The best thing about the state I live in is the natural beauty. Northwest Arkansas has beautiful season changes and rolling mountains and valleys. There’s still plenty of farm land to see not too far out, but we have the benefit of the city too.
5. If you could sum up your blog in one word, what would it be?
