Sacred foods is where Hestia really captures my heart. Bread. Bread is the staff of life and food most associated with Hestia. Every time I put together a loaf of my bread I always am certain to leave a bit of dough for Hestia on her altar in gratitude for her bounty. She also receives … Continue reading Things I’ve Learned About Hestia (Part 8: Sacred Foods)

When our … Continue reading Witchin’ In My Kitchen…With Chicken Broccoli Casserole
