I just want good food and to live a Magickal life! Is that so much to ask?After many years of study, struggle, and disappointment; I realize that I could forge my own path using the knowledge I gained, and the simplest of techniques. Through persistence I found the honest answer... I can have both!
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!
Please enjoy the recipes, article, and content here on The Magick Kitchen. If you have questions or suggestions, I’m listening.
I am so glad you joined me! The personal act of sharing knowledge, experience, and personal perspective with you is an honor. Thank you!

  1. Thank you for the recipe, which I will make!

  2. My family loves this recipe, as I thought they would. Unfortunately, I can’t drink it, as I am allergic to cinnamon. Usually, I would substitute with ground cardamom, but I don’t know how that would change the magical element here and, since it is ground, I’m not sure how much to use or whether to put it in before boiling or after. Further guidance would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    • I am happy they love it! Cardamom is often used in recipes and spells related to love and lust. However, love does not always mean romantic love. It can be love in general and especially family love. I would not use as much, maybe one 1/8 tsp ground or 1 crushed pod since this is a very strong spice. Hope that helps. Let me know how it turns out. -Leandra
