Middle Earth Magic: Inspired Ideas and Seasonal Spells for Your Enchanted Life

I grew up on a farm in West Virginia and learned much about herbs, trees, animals, gardening, foraging  and so much about nature. I incorporate this wisdom I learned from elders in my family into my spellwork. When I finally left the farm, I majored in Medieval Studies, my attempt to emulate my idol, J.R.R. Tolkien. All these influences led me to my own blended brew which I call "middle earth magic," containing a mix of the modern and the time-tested "old ways."

Honey Love Shortbread

  • 1 cup butter

  • 1⁄3 cup honey

  • 1⁄3 cup candied herbs

  • 2 1⁄2 cups flour

Cream the herbs and honey into the softened butter and then fold the flour into it gradually. Mix well and roll into a two-inch wide log shape. Wrap this dough in wax paper and chill in the refrigerator at least two hours. Preheat the oven to 325°F; slice rounds of the dough and place onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake for twenty minutes or until the top is beginning to turn golden. Lavender and hyssop make the sweetest dessert shortbreads. Omit the honey from the recipe and use sage and thyme for highly satisfying breakfast shortbread to serve your sweetheart after an exquisite evening.
