Count me in. People who get annoyed have little sense of humor and/or they are the kind of people who can't stand to see someone happy. Watch out for those, they will do anything to make others as miserable as they are.

If I'm gonna use a mix, it will be the Ghiradelli mix. I bake from scratch otherwise, but the Ghiradelli are excellent.

I made these

Garam Masala-Chocolate Gingerbread Recipe : Aarti Sequeira : Food Network

They were good, and spicy. If you are a big fan of ginger these are for you. I opted for the chocolate glaze. The glaze is excellent, would be wonderful for donuts or bundt cakes, a great consistency.

that should do it, don't u think.
Man oh Man. If that doesn't do it, you might consider looking for another gentleman.

Re what I baked today: I was tasked (what a stupid verb) with making a batch of cookies for my DIL to take to her office -- I volunteered. I ended up making an old recipe for apple coffee cake instead. I haven't made it in years. Two issues: #1, it called for 4 apples, chopped. I swear they don't make regular size apples any more -- they're huge! I found some Granny Smiths at the grocery described as "Disney Mini's" that were the size of apples they used to sell. #2, While the end result was yummy, it's too gooey to cut into squares (as I intended) which might be a problem at an office. So I don't know if this will work or whether I'll be baking again tomorrow to get it right.

Send along paper plates and plastic forks, it will get taken care of, guaranteed!
