Recipe of the Day: Lemon-Topped Gingerbread

I made this every Christmas for my kids, they didn’t care for gingerbread cut-out cookies, but they loved the gingerbread cake.

It’s just barely the beginning of December, and already I’ve seen three posts that claim that the song “The 12 Days of Christmas” is a Christian code for Biblical teachings.
