The big question many of us ask is, “What will I give to (insert name here)?”
Let’s face it, Pagan items are not very easy to find in your local box store, and many items cost more than our budget will allow. Sure you can give candles… but really, you did that last year and the year before. It’s getting a little old.
OH! Wait you can give them that cute (not really) poppet you made and didn’t really have a use for it in your treasure trove of supplies.
I have a simple and cost effective solution. A solution that will not have your friends and family gritting their teeth as they say to you, “Oh how thoughtful.”
My solution? Make food items. Make foods that toast the season and bring comfort and joy to everyone’s downtime and tables.
I started this tradition when we were so poor we could barely pay our electric bill. So I did what I thought was the most thoughtful and budget-friendly thing I could do. NOW, after nearly 7 years I have people asking me in advance if I will make my biscotti or my chocolate chips cookies this year, and if they can have an extra 6 or so.
So I will share with you two of my seasonal favorites. So you too can start your own tradition of tasty gift giving.

I love food and everything that goes with it. I have spent more than 35 years in the kitchen, enjoying every minute of it. Okay… well, enjoying nearly every minute of it.
In addition, I have disbursed nearly as many years studying Wicca, Witchcraft, and Paganism. Combining these two interests has created a Magickal path where food, spirituality play brilliantly together.
My love of whole healthy foods, and unique recipes has also lead me to help run a local teen cooking program, where I teach kids valuable life skills in the kitchen. In addition, I teach different cooking classes for adults on subjects of making the time spent in the kitchen more enjoyable and efficient, recipe creation, and how to make cooking a part of your Magickal and spiritual practice.
From this, The Magick Kitchen was born. My journey with you is about developing a spiritual experience with food, far beyond the dull habit of consumption. We have a marvelous opportunity here to take a most basic-mundane task and make it Magickal!
