Welcome to November and my month long celebration of Kitchen Witchery and cooking. This is like my October celebration of Witches, but it's much more detailed because I'm going to write- a lot. This is going to be long post. I took 22 pictures. What subject was so fascinating? My cookbook. I've posted about my cookbook twice before- once when I put it into its current binder and again when I started making needlework to decorate it. If you're a long-time reader, you've seen much of this before.
My plan was to just cook. I have never photographed my cooking before and as I took all the pictures of my cookbook, I realized this could be a month of very long, daunting posts. I am determined to plow ahead anyway, but I apologize now if I skip steps or fail to present something in a clear, easy to understand manner. My goal is to make cooking more approachable. I really and truly hate to cook. I know, I know, I'm a Kitchen Witch. But I can't lie. The kitchen is NOT where I want to spend most of my time. I do cook, and I cook often, but it is out of necessity. As a diabetic, the best way to ensure I'm sticking to my diet is to prepare the food myself. I try to keep things simple and easy. Some people think cooking is hard or that the only really tasty food is hard to make. This isn't true. Cooking is very versatile and most recipes can be made simple.
I decided to start with my cookbook rather than a recipe because I want you to get a sense of both how I cook and the magick I do. Later, I'll have some posts on Kitchen Witchery in general, what it means to me, and what separates it from other kinds of magick. I'll have cooking, house keeping, and gardening tips.
