Fascinating. But I am distressed over one aspect of your story, which is your failure to capitalize the names of our religion: “Pagan” and “Paganism.” Names of religions are proper nouns and adjectives, and are always capitalized: Christian, Jewish, Islam, Buddism, Shinto, Mormon, Catholic, Protestant, Baptist, Hindu, etc. Failure to capitalize the name of someone’s religion can only be construed as a deliberate insult. As a primary Founder of the modern Pagan religious movement, I take great offense whenever I see its name printed in lower-case.

INGREDIENTS FOR SUCCESSFUL KITCHEN WITCHERY
The basic components for successful kitchen magick are:
Simplicity: This allows the Kitchen Witch to focus on the goal rather than the process.
Creativity: This allows the Witch to see the spiritual potential in even the most mundane items.
