The kitchen witch is most comfortable in the heart of the home – the kitchen. If you haven’t got a homemade stew bubbling away on the stove, you’ll have a batch of cupcakes ready to ice. Good food and, in particular, natural ingredients are very important to you and you love nothing more than trying out new recipes, especially if you can whip them up yourself.
The kitchen witch will combine her magic with her cooking, so it’s no wonder your food tastes magical!Whatever you are rustling up, whether it’s a toasted cheese sandwich or three-course meal, you can turn it into a spell. Think about what you want to manifest in the future and every time you add a new ingredient, imagine it’s a magical one that’ll make all your hopes and wishes come true. Your food won’t only taste better, and become more of a pleasure to create, but your dreams will also materialise too – as if by magic!

Magical cookie recipe
You will need:
250g plain flour
½ teaspoon of bicarbonate soda
½ teaspoon of salt
170g unsalted melted butter
200g dark brown sugar
100g caster sugar
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
350g chocolate chips
1 Preheat the oven to 170 C/Gas mark 3 and grease your baking trays (or line with greaseproof paper).
2 Sift together the flour,bicarbonate and salt in a bowl.
3 Cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and caster sugar until well blended. As you do this, imagine stirring magic into the bowl. Fold in the vanilla, egg and yolk until light and creamy. Combine the two mixtures until perfectly blended. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand (using a wooden spoon). As you drop them into the mix, say, ‘One for you and one for me, these cookies are magical as you will see. Make a wish and take a bite, your wish will come true on the 12th night.’
4 Drop cookie dough onto the prepared baking trays, allowing around four tablespoons of dough for each one (for smaller cookies, drop one rounded tablespoonful and adjust baking time as necessary). Do not flatten the dough, and try to place the cookies at least 8cm apart.
5 Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on baking trays for a few minutes before carefully transferring them to wire racks so they can cool down completely – and viola!
