Each year my son and I visit The Silo at Hunt Hill Farm in New Milford, CT to make a gingerbread house. This destination museum and cooking school lets us savor each step, from rolling the dough and baking to building the structure and decorating. Together we make a great team; he likes to build, and I—of course—like to decorate!
The interior designer in me really came through this year, when we decided to do something different—we left off a portion of the roof and decorated the interior of the house, complete with a mod fireplace and presents under the tree. Take a peek at our creation and a couple of other festive collaborations:
Our 2011 gingerbread house

Creating an imaginative gingerbread house has become a much-loved tradition in our house. I hope you’re able to carve some creative time with family this holiday season!
