Amelia had been working tirelessly to perfect one recipe that she ended up with several that we’re borderline genius. The young woman loved a challenge when it came to natural, herbal medicinal goodies. Types of things that not only helped but were also pleasant on the senses. She handpicked each herb from her garden, gathered the honey from the beehives on the estate, as well as dug up the ginger root. She ground up, sliced, diced, dried, and ground things up some more. She blended and mixed until she got just the right consistency, so she thought. “Aww, piddle!”, she said softly, though with quite a bit of disgust once her twentieth batch came out chewy after they dried. The young lady popped one into her mouth and canted her head as she took in the strong, but somewhat admirable flavor of the chewy, ginger candy. “These migh’ do fer som'hin maybe quick like. I’ll let Lady Ludlow try these and see if they a’ leas’ help.”, she mumbled out as she swallowed the remnants of the chewy candy. Without wasting a single moment, she wrapped each one up in it’s own little wrapper and placed them in a large bag that held about one hundred pieces.
The next day when her chores were done the chestnut-haired woman went back into her little shop by the herb garden and went to work again. Today, Amelia was determined to figure out a proper mixture to make the hard candies, once and for all. She boiled the honey and ginger, adding some mint in the end, “Oh, tha’ll be a nice touch.” She let the mixture cool, but it wasn’t very thick as she attempted to mold little candies. “Ah, bloody lemon drops! Why can’ I ge’ this righ’?! This should be like any other candy I make, bu’ i’s jus’ no’ holdin up!” The woman watched the small globes melt into flat circles and hummed softly in thought. Amelia snapped her fingers and ran to the kitchen to get some lollipop sticks and placed them into the little honey and herbal puddles, “I be’ these would be nice to have if ya didn’ qui'e wan’ to keep such a strong flavor in your mou'h fer too long a’ a time.”. She tasted the mixture left in the simmering pot as they piece dried on the waxed paper, “Oh, yeah these are a bi’ strong. They’ll work like magic, bu’ I couldn’ handle holdin’ it my mou'h fer sure.” She coughed a couple times since the taste she took was quite a large glob of the mixture as she wrapped them up into individual wrappers and placed them into another sack, that held about fifty of the pops, to give to Lady Ludlow.
It was her day off this day, but of course all she’d rather do is play around within her garden and mess around with her large array of homegrown herbs and spices. Amelia brought some syrup with her this time. “This ough’ to do i’.”, she spoke out as she began heating up all of her ingredients with simple taste tests. Waiting until the liquid was hot, bubbly, and a thickened consistency before removing it from the heat, she brought the pot to the table and rested it on a thick cloth. Once cool enough, she dipped her hands in confectioner’s sugar and attempted to roll them up in little bit-sized bits. They held for a moment, but began to finally flatten out just like the lollies she made, “Oh, stuff and nonsense! Wha’ ever am I doin wrong?!”Ameliastomped her foot onto the floor and folded her arms with a huff, “Maybe if I….” She paused her voice and the rest of her words were spoken within her mind as she went ahead and let the ginger and honey discs dry on wax paper and dove into making one more batch for the day. This harvest witch fledgling was determined this was going to be the day her recipe was perfected!
Once the mixture cooled she coated her hands in powdered sugar, once again. Amelia gently rolled the pieces up and they were drying nearly too fast for her to shape them into what she intended, “By jolly! I think I go’ i’!” She rolled them out as quickly as she could before the mixture in the pot hardened too much to use and laid each candy to rest on the wax paper. She washed her hands and pulled up a chair, watching them closely with anticipation within her silvery hues. Unlike the rest of her trials and errors, the young woman finally achieved her goal. She grinned as she wrapped them up in waxed papers, “And they don’ even stick to me fingers when handlin ‘em either. Oh, wha’ a day! I can hardly wai’ ta give these to the Lady Ludlow.”
She wrapped the discs in delicate paper, stacked atop of each other and then tossed the candy pieces into another sack and tied it up. She glanced at all of the recipes she’d jotted down and pulled aside those of all the candies she’d made. Amelia gathered up each of the sacks of candy and the box of discs and carefully placed them into a large basket to carry back into the manor where she sought out Elizebella. “I hope these help with her nausea, as well as her friend, um–I can’ remember tha’ lovely woman’s name. Miss or was i’ Lady Th–”She shook her head with a hum,“I’ll jus’ have ta ask again. Lady Ludlow will understand. She knows I’m terrible with names.”Her words echoed down the halls as she spoke aloud to herself. Most would think she’s probably a bit crazy for doing so, but it was encouraged by Elizebella for her to do so. After all, she was still trying to find her voice again after being silent for so many years.
Herbs: (Amount of each herb is up to you, I used about a teaspoon of each except the powdered garlic, which I used a little more of compared to the other herbs)
Ground Black Pepper
Crystallized or Ground Ginger
Optional: Cayenne Pepper to enhance each of the herbs power/ energy.
Hematite (1 or more, completely up to you)
Blue or Black Candle.
Pen or pencil
1. Place or pour all of your herbs and your stone(s) into the jar.
2. Write the names of those you wish to protect (include your name as well) onto pieces of paper (1 piece of paper for each person, so I’d recommend that each piece be small pieces of paper).
3. (For this step if you are interested, you can inscribe a protective sigil into the candle with a knife, but this is completely optional) Light your candle of choice and let the wax melt onto the inside of the jar’s lid. Make sure that you can still close the lid after melting it onto the inside of the lid.
4. Say this as many times as you wish:
“May those I love and myself be protected from all harm so that we may live safely”
5. Blow out the candle and and place the pieces of paper into the jar and close the jar.
After the spell is cast, keep the jar in a safe place. I haven’t touched the jar since I casted the spell, so I’m not sure what will happen if you were to open the jar. But I recommend that you don’t open the jar since the candle wax and the incantation basically sealed the spell, meaning that if you were to open it, the spell might break or stop working. So just try to keep it off the side out of harm’s way.
If you have more questions or anything to add feel free to send me an ask!
I made the most vibrant sunshine-coloured smoothie bowl to start my week🌞 melty carrot cake nicecream (with @the_goodguru vanilla blend goodness), topped with crunchy homemade granola, strawberries + nectarine👅👌🏼👌🏼 RECIPE:
Add 2 frozen bananas, 1 large cooked carrot, 1 tbsp @the_goodguru vanilla vegan protein, ½ tsp each cinnamon + ground ginger and a splash of almond milk to your blender. Blend until silky smooth, spoon into a bowl and top with all of your favourite things😌✨
So I’ve been eating pretty indulgently in the past couple of days. I blame it on the exam season, which always has me reaching for something decadent or greasy for some reason! After a pizza and dessert-filled day yesterday, I decided to up the nutrition today with this nourishing meal of rice, baked Thai-style peanut tofu and veggies, all on a bed of fresh spinach. It’s all about balance! Indulging here and there is great for mental health- and in my opinion, that’s equally as important as eating physically nutritious food like this.
To make the rice bowl:
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius. In a bowl, mix 1.5 tbsp peanut butter, 1 tbsp soy sauce, the juice of 1/3 lemon, and a pinch of smoked paprika and ground ginger. Add water slowly to thin it out, mixing it well, until it reaches a thick sauce consistency. Add small cubed tofu pieces (I used a 390g pack for 3 servings). Coat the tofu well in the marinade, then add to a parchment paper-lined baking tray. Place in the oven for 30-40 mins or until the tofu is nice and toasted, flipping it over halfway through to ensure even cooking.
In the meantime, start cooking your rice, either in a rice cooker or on the stovetop. Then sauté some veggies of choice (I used broccoli and chestnut mushrooms) with a dash of soy sauce. You could also steam them if you’d prefer.
Once everything is done, lay down fresh spinach in your bowl, and top with your individual components! I meal prepped this, so I made 3 dinners from this one session in the kitchen. Definitely a more time-efficient method for me, especially this exam season!
I’ve been spending the last week assembling my very first herb witch starter kit!
My friend gave me this fantastic cubbyhole box and as soon as I saw it I knew what I’d be using it for.
This is my first attempt, so I don’t have everything I had my eye on yet, but it’s as complete as it’s going to be for the time being.
I have 54 herbs and resins in my kit, some that I purchased and others that I pilfered from my parents spice cabinet, or my own.
- Blessed Thistle - St. John’s Wort -Vervain
- Mugwort - White Horehound - Juniper Berries
- Lady’s Mantle - Motherwort - Damiana
- Red Clover - Calendula Petals - Gardenia Fruits
- Agrimony - Mullien Leaves - Licorice Root
- Honeysuckle - Nettle Leaf - Dandelion Leaf
- Ground Ivy - Buckwheat Herb - Jamaican Dogwood
- Lavender - Chamomile - Hibiscus
- Neem Powder - Rose Petals - Pink Himalayan Salt
- Jasmine Flowers - Linseed - Fennel
- Black Salt - Paprika - Chilli Flakes
- Safflower - Cardamon - Tumeric
-Cinnamon Sticks - Thyme - Oregano
- Rosemary - Parsley - Basil
- Mulukhiya - Chives - Nutmeg
- Ground Cumin - Ground Ginger - Cayenne Pepper
-Ground Chia - Dammar Resin - Amber Resin
- Vatican Mix - 4-Star Resin - Frankincense
You can probably tell which ones came from my kitchen and which ones I bought. I’m having a lot of fun reading up on elixirs, spells and teas you can make with these herbs as well as planning out my herb grimoire. If anyone has any tips for a baby herb witch send them my way please, I have so much to learn!
This is the first spell I cast after claiming the title Witch. It’s rough and no longer is how I do my spells, but it was fun and proved profitable. It was performed on a full moon and I saw results the following afternoon in the form of a $150 gift.
Stones - Bloodstone (grounding + attract wealth) - Carnelian (Courage + wealth) - Fluorite (Abundance) - Tigers Eye (protection + grounding) Herbs - Leaves From Jade Plant “Money Tree” - Mint from the woods (prosperity) - Thyme (attract money) - Ground Ginger Root (protect from evil, attract money) - Cloves (luck) - Cinnamon (prosperity and wealth) Other - Green Sachet with Golden Thread - Silver Coins - 2 ¢50 coins (one to represent me, and one for my husband) - White, Red, and Green Candle(s)
Prior to the Spell:
Cleanse the coins of any sort of negative energy that has been left on them from others with black salt. Place your herbs and stones all together. Allow all of the energies from these items to feed off of each other.
Meditate and ground self with Tigers Eye and/or clear quartz. I used the tree visualization in honor of the symbolism of a money tree. It makes sense to me. The branches grow leaves, symbolic of health, growth, and wealth. Flowers that bloom from you, the tree, represent prosperity. Once properly grounded and centered, focus intent on your collection of elements for the spell and place your intent on the whole thing. My intent was for money, prosperity, and success. Once the energy of your intent is to your liking, put all of the items into the green sachet and go under the light of a Full Moon.
Take your sachet, and your candle(s). Light your candle(s) and recite a prayer that brings forth your intention. This was my prayer: Mother Moon I ask for you To aide me and my spouse. Money is tight, love is full but we must pay for our house. Our hearts are full Pockets empty, and we wish for your guidance. Provide prosperity and help with wealth is what we ask from thee. Thank you, Moon, for hearing our prayer. Good night, and blessed be. I let the wax from the candle(s) pour onto my BOS and around the sachet. When I went back in my home, I noticed the ginger root coming out of the sachet. I sprinkled it in our doorways, on our work shoes, and around our home.
REMINDER: Just because it worked for me doesn’t mean you’ll see the same results. Every spell is different, as is every caster.
Hello, cuties! A new jar, a much needed jar today!
We’ve got a prosperity jar on our hands, because who doesn’t need some help in that area! I don’t know anyone who doesn’t! We’ve got a pretty simple list of ingredients today, so it isn’t going to be difficult to make. Let’s get into it!
allspice - for money
chamomile - attracts money
mint - also attracts money
bay leaf - for good fortune and success
ginger - for success, power and money.
* I used dried ginger but you can also use ground ginger!
As always, focusing each intent for each ingredient, think about bills you need to pay, goals you want to reach, etc. If you are making this with a specific amount of money in mind, I would write the amount (or goal in general even!) on the bay leaf before putting it inside!) After everything is in the jar, you can cork it and focus the intent into the whole jar, believe it, speak it, declare it as a truth! There is so much power in your words and in your belief, don’t forget that! You can say something like this while doing so –
“While I carry this jar around, Solutions and money will surely be found.”
After you are finished, you can seal up your bottle with wax, I like to use colors that correspond with my intent for each bottle. I have a tutorial for to seal bottles up like this here.
Feel free to tag me in your recreations! I love to see them!
This is my go to “Cold Banishing” potion - used in soups or marinades or dressings
*Garlic - 1 large clove garlic or 1 tablespoon minced garlic or 1 tsp garlic powder - to cleanse and banish the sickness
* Ginger - 1 tsp ground ginger, 1 thumb sized piece of fresh ginger grated - to speed up and power the magical working, for healing as well
* Vinegar - any on hand, I use Citrus Rice Wine Vinegar a lot - cleansing
* Sesame oil - to taste - for the “prosperity” of the spell, a little insurance so the spell works
* Salt or Soy Sauce - to taste - cleansing/protection from reinfection
* Hot spice of some sort - chili oil, chili powder, cayenne pepper, etc to cleanse and protect with the property of fire, to “burn out the sickness”
I use this combo regularly in my Cold Banishing Soup. I recently used it in a marinade for meat as well!
Use this as a sauce, flavoring or marinade for the rest of your meal. I like to add this to soup with lots of veggies, so that I get lots of vitamins as well to help fight off the sickness. Also, adding this to chicken broth includes the “healing chicken soup” vibe as well, that we use so much for colds and flus! Don’t forget your noodles and meat. A well balanced meal helps heal tremendously and gets you the nutrients you need to heal, as well!
TwitchyWitchyOne’s Aggressive Home Protection Spell Bottle
I used every item I had on hand for this spell bottle, because we’re going through a mildly nasty separation from our roommate. I went for equal parts aesthetic and function (because I want it to be on display in my living room), so I’m going to include the order in which I added ingredients, but it’s not really necessary. Feel free to use as is, modify for what you have on hand, or for your personal preferences.
A bottle/jar/container with a cork/lid.
A brown candle.
Ingredients (remember you can use whatever you have or prefer instead):
Black Beans (dry): protection, defense, strength.
Red Beans (dry): health, energy, compassion.
Chilli Powder: repelling negative energy.
Cinnamon (ground and stick): protection, strength, prosperity.
Cloves: banishing, protection.
Garlic (ground and whole): protection, guard against negative energy.
Nutmeg: protection, prosperity.
Rosemary (ground and whole): good health.
Black Pepper: protection against evil.
Ginger (ground and whole): strengthens the other ingredients.
Charged/Infused Water (feel free to charge however you want or infuse with any herbs or crystals you feel would be helpful. I spit into the water for a mild taglock and spoke to it about what it’s purpose was.)
While adding each ingredient, focus on the property you need from it. Say “I/We are ___” inserting the property you are focused on. When something had a property other than protection, I used it. Protection is the point of the bottle as a whole, so you don’t need to say it with every protection herb you add. You know?
The order in which I added ingredients:
1. Black Beans (“We are strong.”)
2. Salt (“We are safe.”)
3. Cloves (“We banish negative energy.”)
4. Cumin (“We are safe.”)
5. Chilli Powder (“We repel negative energy.”)
6. Nutmeg (“We are prosperous.”)
7. Ground Garlic (“We guard against negative energy.”)
8. Ground Cinnamon (“We are prosperous.”)
9. Black Pepper (“We protect against evil.”)
10. Ground Rosemary (“We are healthy.”)
11. Ground Ginger (“We strengthen.”)
12. Red Beans (“We are compassionate.”)
13. Whole Garlic (“We guard against negative energy.”)
14. Whole Ginger (“We strengthen.”)
15. Whole Cinnamon (“We are prosperous.”)
16. Whole Rosemary (“We are healthy.”)
17. Charged/Infused Water (whatever you charged or infused it with.)
Close the bottle/jar. Heat the bottom of a candle to make it stick to the cork/lid of your bottle/jar. Light the candle. Think (or say) “Our home is safe. Our home is whole. Our home is blessed.” Let the candle burn out to seal the bottle/jar.
If you want to, at this point you can add any sigils, symbols, ribbons, anything else that will have meaning and also be nice to look at.
EDIT: 1. Please don’t leave a burning candle unattended, and be extra careful if it’s burning on a cork! Make sure to put it out before it can catch on fire!
2. I didn’t think about it when I made it, but happened to put exactly the right amount of water in. If you’re using dry beans, they will expand in the water! Make sure there is plenty of room for them to expand so it doesn’t overflow!
Anonymous said: Hey! Could you do a
Bughead fic where Betty gets hurt somehow and Jughead comforts her and fixes
her up?? Thanks!
“Throw her up higher!” Cheryl screamed towards the cheerleaders
as she watched from a few feet away. “She needs to go higher!”
“We can only throw a human so high, Cheryl!” Veronica hissed, as
she and Ginger Lopez tossed Betty into the air.
“Maybe if she was a bit lighter you’d be able to toss her
higher, hmm?” Cheryl questioned, with a triumphant smirk forming on her lips.
“Maybe if you cut back on the milkshakes you’d be able to go higher, Betty! I
didn’t know Jughead was into big girls.”
Veronica growled, as Betty just looked down at her shoes.

Welcome to Cucco’s Kitchen! I will be making various anime and video game style drinks, dishes, deserts and more! By watching these videos I make money to donate to Alz and you guys can learn to cook and make great and fun dishes!
Today we tackle the Meaty Rice Balls in Zelda Breath of the Wild In the game the Meaty Rice Balls description is “The sweet and spicy meat stuffed into these rice balls will keep you full for some time.”
I hope you will enjoy!
Ingredients 1-3 Cups Of Short Grained Rice Salt ¼ Cup Brown Sugar, Packed ¼ Cup Reduced Sodium Soy Sauce 2 Teaspoons Sesame Oil ½ Teaspoon Crushed Red-pepper Flakes, Or More To Taste ¼ Teaspoon Ground Ginger 1 Tablespoon Vegetable Oil 3 Cloves Garlic, Minced 1 Pound Ground Beef 10 Slices Of Prosciutto
Could you info dump about what plants to use when you are sick?
Hmm that’s probably gonna depend on the symptoms. Some plants I use are turmeric, ginger, cayenne, basil, sage, thyme, and rosemary.
Turmeric is a great anti inflammatory and anti-oxidant but is difficult to absorb without black pepper. It can also soothe digestion and help with bronchitis or other breathing difficulties.
Ginger is really great, and it’s actually not technically a root, it’s a rhizome which is part of the stem under the ground. Ginger is very helpful for nausea (however not for vomiting episodes). It’s also an anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant, and can help prevent respiratory infections.
Cayenne is great for congestion, and can be added to tea, where the steam is helpful to inhale (or attempt to, because it can be hard when congested). Cayenne also had anti-bacterial properties and helps with digestion (in a few ways).
Basil is super cool, and I love it a lot, holy basil has even more medicinal properties than other basils. Basil can help with respiratory issues and even help with breaking fevers (though you need to use and extract every 2-3 hours for fevers). Basil can also help a lot with coughs and sore throats! I’d recommend chewing on leaves.
Sage is great for intestinal issues like gas, digestion issues, diarrhea, and lack of appetite. It’s also and anti-oxidant and boosts immunity. You can chew on sage or make sage tea but a lot of people don’t like the flavor and prefer tinctures.
Thyme is so cool and can help with stomach aches, diarrhea, sore throats, coughs, and other respiratory issues. And you can either make thyme into a tea or a tincture.
Rosemary also improves digestion and is an anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant which helps promote the immune system. Rosemary is also a strong against bacterial infections.
However depending on the doses and the medications you are on I would not recommend all of these. Please talk to a doctor before introducing these to your body (at higher dosages than cooking) if you are on any medication.
