Soul Cakes for Samhain

This is a shining example of Recipes Gone Wrong! When I looked over the recipe, I really felt like something was missing, but I couldn’t put my finger on it. I think there either needs to be a “Put dough in fridge for 30 minutes” step or a “Use half a stick of butter” step.Continue reading “Soul Cakes for Samhain”

Homemade Grenadine

I love pomegranates! I also love friends who allow me to come pick pomegranates from their trees! I think we brought home about 10lbs of pomegranates and about 5lbs of persimmons. I may make persimmon bread; we’ll see. This video, though, is for how to peel and juice a pomegranate and how to make grenadineContinue reading “Homemade Grenadine”

Pumpkin Shortbread

Remember when we made pumpkin bisque and made our own pumpkin purée for that? Well, I ended up with an extra 1-1/2 cups of purée that I need to figure out what to do with! So, I started with the pumpkin shortbread because, I love shortbread! Almond flour is a good 1-to-1 substitute for aContinue reading “Pumpkin Shortbread”


Merry meet, my Witchlettes! Today’s video is two apple recipes for your Fall and Samhain season! The first is simply baked apples, which can be done in a microwave or in the oven, depending on what you have available to you; the other is an overnight apple curry soup that is about the same consistencyContinue reading “Applepaloosa!”

Samhain Relaxing Potion

This potion is for helping you to relax and clear your mind to prepare for doing divination work. I, personally, do not use potions or anything like that, so to me, this is just a super bitter tea that requires liquid stevia to be drinkable. That is your warning. Let’s talk about the ingredients, though.Continue reading “Samhain Relaxing Potion”

Pumpkin Time!

It’s pumpkin time! No, not pumpkin spice. I mean, pumpkin spice is fine and dandy and if that’s your deal, you go! I prefer the Gingerbread Lattes to Pumpkin Spice, but I just love pumpkin! So, I bought 3 sugar pumpkins (the kind you use for pumpkin pies) to make various things. One of themContinue reading “Pumpkin Time!”

Veggie Lasagna – Low Carb

There are six guys who live upstairs. They’re a cool group of guys, but I’m really only friend-friends with 3 of them. One of the things they do is run a start-up called “Spira, Inc” in which they grow spirulina to create sustainable and ethical food sources. In a nutshell, that’s what they do. Anyway,Continue reading “Veggie Lasagna – Low Carb”

Keto Meal: Shrimp Scampi, Creamed Spinach, & Cornbread

It was #FishFriday. I’m not a huge fan of shrimp, but I promised Cameraman Ken I’d make shrimp scampi if he ordered shrimp in our Imperfect Produce box. He was excited for scampi, but I didn’t feel like making noodles or making two separate batches of noodles for him and myself. So, I asked ifContinue reading “Keto Meal: Shrimp Scampi, Creamed Spinach, & Cornbread”

Homemade Pasta Sauce

When I started this blog and channel, I was hoping to go a different direction with my diet. Gastrointestinal issues are never any fun and they’re doubly awful when you don’t know why you’re having them (kinda where I am, currently). I started, basically, a medieval diet palate in January and was really trying toContinue reading “Homemade Pasta Sauce”

Avocado Pesto

I love avocados. They are not pre-Columbian, however. So, apologies for the New World foods I’ve been eating and sharing on my pre-Columbian blog/YT channel. But, being on a Keto diet, I have to make some tough choices. Once I get to the point where I can “safely” enter maintenance, I’ll be switching to aContinue reading “Avocado Pesto”
