I got the most amazing gift this week! My mother’s cook books now awaiting to line my shelves and be entered into my computer.
I have taken on the rather large task of creating a master family cookbook. Blending the recipes from my husband’s family and my own into one incredible book! Leaving nothing out which includes all of my magickal recipes. Giving our children the recipes they know and love in one source.
As I do this I began to really think of all the recipes I have collected and made over the years. Allowing my thoughts to take me back.
Many of us have seen and used a recipe file or box. That enhanced box that held the most amazing secrets to food in the house. I loved watching as my mother got out her box and made the most amazing things in our kitchen. Watching as she would adjust the recipe or add a new one to the collection. I completely blame my mother for my obsession with recipes.
These days the recipe box has been replaced with digital resources. Which I love because I can sure type much faster then I can write on those small cards. Sharing recipes now is easier then ever with food websites and social media like Pinterest. This makes possibilities endless for people like me. I love trying out new recipes I never thought to do before seeing it online.
The recipe box may have changed but there are still things that remain the same like how we record the recipe.
Being the informational gal I am I tend to take things a bit further, especially for any recipe I use in my spiritual practice. Those recipes that are for spells, oil blends, rituals, sabbats and herbal mixtures. I record everything in a note book and then transfer it to my computer. Recording what ingredients I used, the way I gathered or where I purchased the ingredients, the date, the phase of the moon, if it was successful or a failure, how strong I rate it and so on.
I am sure others have systems that look very different to what I do. What things do you include when recording your magickal workings? Share with us a few of the steps you enjoy when making, collecting or recording a recipe.
Also don’t forget to submit the recipes you want Lady Destiny to try for the Kitchen Magick Radio Show. Coming back on the air soon.
