Vegan Soft Ginger Cookies!

First off, I'm Felicia, my Mom and I decided to share our recipes, our experiences, and reviews on other recipes. 

My Mom (Vonda), Dad (Bob), boyfriend Ed, and I decided to start eating healthier back in December 2011. We switched totally to organic foods, including meat. My Uncle Greg sent us a movie, Forks Over Knives; it opened our eyes to what the food industry is really doing to our health, the environment, and the animals. Reality. 

Lets move on to our first recipe! 

Something perfect for the holidays. When we went vegan we thought we could never have these cookies again and I was so upset. Then we researched how to bake without eggs, milk, and  butter. EASY! :D
