About Us

Julia's birthday cake a few years back!

Julia's Bday

Hello! We are Electra and Steph and welcome to Gingership! Thanks so much for stopping by. This blog follows our cooking adventures. Here is a little info about us and how this all began.

We met freshman year in the dorms where we lived across the hall from each other. We’ve been friends ever since. Around the holidays that year, Electra’s grandparents sent her a care package which included a jar of delicious crystallized ginger. Both Electra and her grandpa shared a mutual love for ginger. Steph was in love at first bite. Ever since, ginger has been a slightly ridiculous obsession for the both of us. Honestly, our love of ginger has nothing to do with us both being redheads…

It wasn’t until senior year 2009 that we truly cooked together – when we baked our 1st annual joint round of Holiday cookies. It was a blast and to look back, that kitchen was so small. It’s amazing we actually baked 1,600 cookies that year. We’ve grown so much since! These past two years as our friendship has grown, we’ve gotten really excited about cooking. With graduating, becoming self-dependent young professionals, and now living in Boulder, we’ve learned a lot and we are starting to explore the exciting possibilities in the kitchen.

Both of us really enjoy hosting and cooking for other people. We try to get in as much cooking as possible. Currently, we are cooking at least once a week together on Wednesdays and this blog documents those nights as well as other random kitchen endeavors.

    About your inclusion of Left Hand Milk Stout in one of your recipes:
    Are you aware that you are supposed to rough-pour the stout into its container? It makes it taste no less than a billion times better.
