Making Magick in the Kitchen:
This soup is perfect for dispelling anger and quarrels between people. The soup must be eaten by all parties involved for it to work. When you want to turn this recipe into a spell you only have to make a couple modifications as you cook the ingredients.
Yellow Onion - Dispelling quarrels, dispelling anger and encourage prosperity
Pork - Prosperity and Renewal
Heavy Cream - Nurturing
Spell Work modifications
Before you chop your onion you will carefully carve the names of those quarreling into your onion. Then chop your onion as the recipe notes.
After you add the Kale you will want to stir the soup slowly, first 9 times counterclockwise as you envision the quarrel ending. Then stir it 9 times clockwise as you envision the parties apologizing, hugging and making amends.
Serve this soup to everyone involved.
A great way to ensure everyone eats the soup is to host a dinner party where you all have a chance to strengthen relationships. If this is not possible to get all the parties together under your roof, you can place the soup in containers and give it to them to consume on their own. Note that if someone other than the intended eats the soup the spell will be void.
It is possible that repeat this spell, depending on the depth and volatile nature of the argument.

Through persistence, I found the honest answer… I can have both! I realize that I could forge my own path using the skills and knowledge I gained, and the simplest of techniques.
I love food and everything that goes with it. I have spent more than 35 years in the kitchen, enjoying every minute. Okay… well, enjoying almost 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 I combine food and spirituality. To my delight they 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 a variety of cooking classes for adults and covens on subjects ranging from making the time spent in the kitchen more enjoyable, to cooking together as a group, and recipe-spell creation.
It only made sense that I would begin writing and sharing my experience. 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 mundane task and make it Magickal!
The Magick Kitchen is about connecting to Divinity through food and the ritual of preparing and sharing food. It is about developing a sacred balance between nourishment, ritual, and spirit. Food has the power to heal, sooth, and bring us together as friends, families, and community.
I am so glad you joined me! Sharing knowledge, experience, and personal perspective with you is an honor. Thank you!
