Summer Melon Salad

This is a tasty salad that is refreshing for the summer. Can also be great for a light lunch salad or a side at a bbq. The tangy of the ginger and lemon really brings out the sweetness of the melon. Mix and match different melons for more color and flavor pop.

Butternut Squash "Spaghetti"

No cooking needed for this tasty recipe. I do suggest using a spiral slicer or saladcco to make the "noodles" with the squash.

Yorkshire Pudding

To serve with a beef roast

Mousse au Chocolat

Rich chocolate mouse.

Roast Chicken Basquaise

Tarragon chicken, very moist and delicious

Papaw Dietrich's Creamy Cucmber Salad

Make this recipe at least 2-3 hours ahead, but preferably a day ahead.

Chicken Florentine

Use less sauce to cut down the calories. Also you can omit the pasta all together

Serving size is 3 oz chicken 1/2 cup sauce and 2 oz pasta per person

Very Good (8 ratings)
Spinach-Pear Salad with Mustard Vinaigrette

Great for Imbolic, with the pears being a winter fruit and the spring baby spinach you have a great balance of both seasons.

Here Comes The Sun Cups

Wonderful for Yule or Imbolic breakfasts. Looks like little sunshines in a phyllo flower cup. The heat from the salsa helps us remember the sun's warmth and the return of the spring!

Samhain Stirfry

Great for the celebration of Samhain.


Incredible! (1 rating)
Wasabi Bloody Mary

Prepared horseradish typically adds heat to this dish, but we've opted for wasabi paste-the green Japanese version of horseradish-to add even more zip. Garnish with pickled asparagus stalk or green bean, or for a twist, serve with picked okra.

Fire and Ice Melon Soup

The jalapeno pepper adds the "fire" to this chilled soup, though it can be omitted.

Brigid Soup

We use the color red to honor the returning light, and the promise of warmth to come. This unfussy pot of soup needs only a few minutes of chopping to prepare. All the ingredients are either red, orange, or yellow, for the colors of the fire that warms our eyes, hearts and
stomachs.

Spiced Winter Fruit

Topped with low-fat vanilla ice cream, this also makes a simple elegant holiday dessert. Quince, which is in season in the winter months, is a yellow-skinned fruit that looks and tastes like a cross between an apple and a pear but turns pink when cooked; cooking mellows the tartness. (If you can't find quince, just use 2 additional apples or pears cut into wedges.)

Cucumber Salsa (No tomatoes)

Salsa is a fun way to get in those veggies you need! Tastes great not only as a snack but paired with chicken, fish or pork.

This is also a good one for those who don't care for tomatoes.

Ritual Cakes - Honey Almond Cookies

Perfect to use for ritual cakes!

Noodles in Fairy Butter

Great for any spring holiday or any time you want to honor the fairy realm.

Orange Water

For those who are bored with lemon water
