  1. Ginger is oh so warming and fiery and yet soothing and gets things flowing, especially your digestive system.

    As someone who lives on a boat (with an easily seasick partner), I’m so pumped to try out some of these recipes. Up until now, I’ve really only used it in drinks and cookies.

    Thanks Carolyn!
