The beauty of gingerbread and of this book is the way they mix the sweet with a touch of spice—the recipe for Tigertail Val's Sweet Gingerbread, for instance, includes coffee and cognac. Add a little lore, like ginger's utility as a thirteenth-century "nobleman's antacid," and you have a delectable dish indeed. The author's answer to overdecorated (you might say, tasteless) gingerbread houses is her recollection of one from her childhood that looked like Bing Crosby's mansion in Beverly Hills— including its pool of aqua sheet-gelatin—and her homespun Lickety Split Log Cabin.
