Published again - Kitchen Witchery!
Just a note to let you all know that I have an article featured in the upcoming Spring 2012 issue (#111) of Circle Magazine! My article is called "A Crash-Course in Kitchen Witchery," and it's one that I'm pretty happy with. It will become available in print in late April, and digital copies can be purchased right now, here: http://www.circlesanctuary.org/store/
The article starts with a quick look at Kitchen Witchery, both ancient and modern, and touches on what it means to be a Kitchen Witch today. It then gives helpful hints on how to get started on this path, with ideas on how to make your own kitchen (and you in it!) feel more magical. Next comes a list of 20 ordinary items you can use to start a magical pantry that will serve just about any purpose, with detailed correspondences for each item. The end of the article explains how to put it all together, with instructions for Sabbats, spells, gifts, crafts, and lots more!
The rest of the magazine looks promising, too. In addition to features about cooking and the magic of food, there are some articles about wards, money-drawing herbs, and how to magically tackle household clutter. Since Circle Sanctuary delayed this issue for about three months (this was supposed to have been the Winter 2012 issue, which got skipped altogether) I'm glad it's finally done and can't wait for it to come in the mail. Go check it out!
