Another Autumn Recipe: Pumpkin Butterscotch Muffins

I’m here posting food and displays again – this time in the true spirit of October. Pumpkin Butterscotch Muffins. My sister actually came across the recipe on Facebook weeks ago and tagged me in it, knowing how much I love butterscotch. And I was needing something else do a blog on for the month (let’s…

Pickles & Pumpkins

Aside from the rustic jars you find at a cute farmer’s market or treats you might buy at a fall fair, pickles are obviously not what comes to mind when you think of October and the Halloween season. I know this. But my garden cucumbers came a little late and I had to wait to…

Dutch Apple Bread for Mabon

I’m finally posting another recipe blog! It’s been several months since I’ve done one of these, and I had to make a dessert over the weekend, so it seemed like a good opportunity to dress up this sweet, cakey quickbread in a display of Mabon flair – hence the corresponding fruits of the “Apple and…

November Sights, Thoughts and Weird Feelings

One of the most terrifying things about life is how fast time flies.  It’s scary to think about how it feels like 2019 just recently got here and we’re already at the tail end of November.It scares me even more knowing that every year seems to go by quicker and quicker, and every late December…

My Lunch and Afternoon at Grogg’s Green Barn

I’m backtracking a bit for this blog post; the later half of last week was so busy, I didn’t get a chance to do a blog on my prize lunch at Grogg’s Green Barn. It was last Thursday – a gray, overcast October afternoon-turned-autumn monsoon with yet another heavy rainstorm for the year. But before the downpour hit, I had a nice time out; I really enjoyed my lunch

Pumpkin Patch and a Treat: Apple Pumpkin Bundt Cake

The feeling of fall has truly settled in. Not with the foliage colors yet, but the mornings and nights are chilly now. Rain gives a ghostly, misty haze. The days become more quiet outside and the ominous sound of emergency sirens more prevalent against a hushed nature. It is October in Oklahoma. Currently it is…

Early Autumn Enchantment: The Story of Persephone and Hades

The trees are slowly starting to turn, pumpkins are making their appearance around town, and Halloween decor is spookingly-gracing the aisles of all the stores. This cusp period of Mabon and the New Moon is my cue to write a magickal blog on my favorite mythological duo – the Lord and Lady of the Underworld…

Cheers for Fall: Chilled Sparkling Apple Cider

Tomorrow is Mabon (at last) and I have a very simple recipe to share. I was not initially planning on doing a beverage, but our kitchen sink/garbage disposal is clogged and I’m trying to put as little down the drain as possible. I didn’t want any difficult food dishes to clean or have to soak,…

A Look Back: My Past Fall Photography

I’ve been taking a break from writing and working on my website, I had been doing so much lately with blog posts and pages, and I felt I could use a rest from it. But with the (much anticipated) approach of autumn, now is a good time for a little throwback to some of my…
