Popular Ginger Desserts

Okay, I'll admit it. I was totally shocked at the amount of recipes I have that call for ginger. When I began this page I thought that I had at least 10 recipes made with ginger with, maybe, a few more. Was I surprised when I realized that I had more!

Ginger is one of my favorite spices. It's a little spicy, and the perfect enhancement to desserts and other sweets. Ginger is used quite often for medicinal use. It quells nausea, which makes it perfect for pregnant women and those...MORE undergoing chemo.

Try one of these popular recipes made with ginger. Just remember, ginger is good anytime of year.
