    The Kitchen Witch

    Using Leftovers ~ Fried Rice We all have leftovers. I have lived with people – men, mostly – who have refused to eat leftovers. But I come from a family who don’t waste anything at all – not food, not clothes, not anything at all – and I am the same way. And honestly – if you throw away food – you’re throwing away money. That’s how I look at it. And I do not like to waste money. Of course – some people think I waste a lot of money – buying books the way I do – but we all have our addictions! I have a three-day rule…

    Healing Oil Recipe

    Healing Oil Recipe for Humans & Pets When it comes to my remedies my witch side comes to life. I have quite a few wise women in my lineage and I like to channel them when I offer any healing assistance or create remedies. My healing oil gets special attention in this area. It cleans wounds, speeds up tissue growth, and helps with bites and stings. I make it in bulk once a year, this way I can spend the year collecting the ingredients as I travel and charging them properly. A lot of work and energy goes into my healing oil. This infusion can be used on its own…

    Applesauce Custard Pie It is my personal tradition to make something with apples for Samhain. Whether it’s an apple pie, a yummy apple kuchen, German apple cake or just simple baked apples, my home is always aromatic with the smell of apples and cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar at the end of October. To be sure – the smell of apple and cinnamon is present almost all year long! I had made applesauce earlier in the week and I wanted to make something with the batch of applesauce that I had. I have more than one recipe for applesauce cake – including the famous one that Olivia Walton makes in…

    Balancing Meals – Third Eye Chakra Veggie Stir Fry with Plum Sauce The Third Eye Chakra is connected with spirituality and perception as well as the color purple. When many people think of the third eye they think of foresight and advanced awareness. While this can be the case, oftentimes someone with an open third eye is more receptive to their surroundings and they pick up on energy shifts faster than others. When the third eye chakra is blocked we experience a lack of concentration and focus. We find it more difficult to sense energies or process information as quickly. Our ability to channel or connect becomes limited, if not…

    The Sacred Spoon

    Chakra Balancing Meals Sacral Chakra Healing carrot soup The sacral chakra is one of creativity, emotion, and connecting with others. When this chakra gets blocked you can experience a lack of creativity and confidence, as well as difficulty forming meaningful relationships with others. In families this can be difficult to deal with. On the other hand if your sacral chakra is overactive you can still experience creativity but have no outlet for this creativity. For a long time I didn’t write or learn many new skills. After much thought and retrospect I realized that it all boiled down to self doubt. I didn’t do things because I assumed I would…

    WitchCrafting: Crafts for Witches

    Crafts for Witches: Black Salt     Merry meet. Witches use black salt to absorb unfavorable energies, boost protection spells and guard against negativity. It is also used in cleansing, healing and banishing, making and breaking hexes, and casting powerful circles. I consider its energy somewhat stronger and different than that of white or pink salt. While you can buy it, it is better if you make your own. Most recipes for black salt are very much the same, and all will draw off negative energy and provide protection.     You’ll want a mortar and pestle in which you will grind together your ingredients. I used a small cast…

    The Sacred Spoon

    Balancing Meals – Root Chakra   I have been called a kitchen witch by many and never truly understood what the term meant until it was explained to me, somewhat recently, as a witch who put all of their loving and healing energy into their food, and love to feed others with these caring energies. That just about hit the nail on the head. I love being in my kitchen making tinctures, salves, teas, and potions; I enjoy putting all of my loving and healing energy into them to help others heal. And I LOVE to cook. So of course I love creating good, healing food for those I care…

    Oooops I Forgot My Lasagna Noodles Pasta Bake Ready for a really yummy dinner that’s so easy but others will think you worked hard to make it? This came up one day when my family really wanted lasagna for dinner, but ooops, as I was getting everything ready guess what was missing? My lasagna noodles! Oh no. With Covid going on I don’t run into the stores anymore and I don’t have time to do a pick up order especially only needing one item. So I used spaghetti pasta. I honestly thought its not going to be that great but it will do. Well I was wrong my family loved…
