I believe someone requested a recipe for gingerbread ... here is my
grandmother's version I have used since I was a little girl.  It is
spicier than some, but is very good.

2 eggs                          1 tsp. allspice
3/4 cup brown sugar             3 tsp. ginger
3/4 cup molasses                3 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 cup melted crisco           1/2 tsp cloves
2 1/2 cups flour                1 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp. baking soda              2 tsp. pummpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp. baking powder          1 cup boiling water

Add beaten eggs to sugar, syrup and melted crisco.  Sift dry
ingredients and add to egg mixture.  Lastly, add boiling water
and mix well.  Pour into greased and floured bundt pan and bake
at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes.
