cakes for the queen of heaven
« Reply #16 on: August 11, 2006, 07:23:47 PM »
"At lammas-tide, which falls on the calends of August, it is good to make a charmed bread and invite your friends to your home to celebrate this Festival of the First Fruits.

Make bread the usual way, but as you knead and pound the dough, you must sing gaily and thump into the goodness of the grain, all the gooness of your heart until you see it overflowing with happiness. Whisper this rune...

Three angels walked by my door,
and one came after...
gentle Sachiel to grant me laughter.
Four angels walk by my door,
Joy live here forevermore.


All the comfort and good cheer that is in your spirit must be put into your baking. When your friends and family sit with you at your table and you eat the fruits of your labor(bread and fruits of the earth)merrymaking will spread like a craze among you, and you will want to end the night with singing and dancing.

taffy pull party?
« Reply #18 on: August 12, 2006, 07:04:27 PM »
Yellowman

1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter(not margarine)
1 pound jar dark corn syrup
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

Melt butter in a deep saucepan. add the sugar, syrup and vinegar.  stir constantly until all ingredients are blended and melted.  then, without further stirring, allow it to come to a boil.  continue boiling until taffy is hard and brittle when placed in icy water.  Remove from heat and add baking powder(mixture will foam up.) Stir well.  pour out onto a greased or waxed paper lined plate.  when it has cooled enought to handle, begin pulling and stretching until it becomes a pale yellow, cut into squares and enjoy.

Wow, I never thought I'd see that recipe anywhere again.

It's very old, and melt-in-the-mouth good.

My old grandmother-in-law used to make this, and she said it was necessary to have a slab of cold marble to pour it on; they also used to take it out in the garage when it was cold weather to 'pull' it.

She never made it in the summer. 

I've seen it for sale in some candy specialty stores and the price is outrageous.

If anyone makes this, please post how it turns out.  I try to stay away from a lot of sweets, (plus I've done my share of home cooking and get tired of it rather quickly.)   *<:)

since i'm on a love kick...;)

Love Potion #9:

In a small pot, simmer a half cup of jojoba oil and, moving your spoon clockwise, stir in 9 drops each of the following essential oils: ambergris, cinnamon, frankincense, jasmine, lavender, musk, orange blossom, rose, violet, and ylang ylang. Let cool and store in a dark glass container. Dab yourself with it as you would your favorite perfume before a night out (or a night in) to drive your loved one wild with desire.

Enchanting Brew:

Pour a quart of red wine or grape juice in a non-reactive pot and warm to a near simmer. In a doubled piece of cheesecloth place two cinnamon sticks, a teaspoon of rose petals, teaspoon each of ginger and cloves, a wedge of orange peel and a piece of fresh ginger. Gather and tie the bundle tightly with butcher's string, and place it in the liquid to steep. Taste the brew every few minutes until the flavors have been infused, but remove the bundle before they become overpowering. Chill if desired. Share a glass with your loved one and toast to an enchanting evening.

and don't forget the most important ingredient, your happy self.  ;)

berry pancakes and honey cream
« Reply #22 on: August 24, 2006, 06:16:42 AM »
i love this one, and my daughter devours them....

take any pancake mix you like(we use krusteaz just add water mix) and mix it up with generous heaps of favorite berries and bannanas, while you're cooking them up, get some light whipping cream add a tasty amount of honey and whip it until it's fluffy...let the pancakes cool and drop on a dollop...no need for heavy butter or sugary sweet syrup...a full serving of fruits, grains and dairy...:D

For insomnia I'd add valerian...I have some tea like that except with valerian instead of vervain, and it knocks me out good.  :)zzz

I tried a tea of lemonbalm with a bit of chamomile and some rosemary for my sore throat today, and it seems to have worked pretty darn well. It doesn't work as well as the concotion of licorice root, slippery elm bark, and fennel I've been drinking the last two days, but it tastes a whole lot better.
