Love, Magic and Food

Health, Happiness, Creativity and Love - these are the complete point of using Magic in the Kitchen. If these words were put in in order by their points on the pentagram, Love would be the pinnacle. Rural traditions tell us that clockwise, the direction the sun moves through the sky, is the best way to mix any meal and the health of those we are cooking for. You might notice that most people without thinking, stir their soups and stews clockwise. No one mentions it because, it just happens. Right? 

It is little known that different foods are even associated with different gods and goddess's. Some examples would be the strawberry, with the Norse goddess of Love, Freya. And hazelnuts for the Norse god Thor.

Want to increase the strength of your present relationship? The combination of eggs and cheese has been "loved" for aeons. And magically speaking the basic energies of any egg dish will be for health, fertility or hidden strength. Cheese is love, protection, change and tenacity. 

Here is lovely breakfast for people who want to reinforce their commitment to each other, two being the number of harmony in relationships. When properly prepared the cooked eggs look like golden suns rising out of the snow (the egg whites). This is a particular favorite of my husband and I as we are of the Norse, "North Men" persuasion. 

Dash of nutmeg                       2 slices buttered toast
2 eggs separated                     2 slices cheese (your preference)

Preheat the broiler. Combine the nutmeg and egg white; beat until stiff. Spread over toast. Make a small indentation in the center; drop the egg yolk. Sprinkle with salt. Cover the yolk with a slice of cheese. Broil until the egg is completely cooked and the cheese is melted. 3 - 5 minutes yield 2 servings. 

Variation: use white cheese over the egg for a lunar effect to use moon magic. 

I wish you much success on blending love and happiness into your loved ones dishes.
Freya Bless,
