We first became aware of this recipe after watching an episode of Jamie and Jimmy's Friday Night Feast a few years ago. The pair travelled around the U.K.looking to revive fading or forgotten classic recipes, arriving in Lancashire to resurrect the Tosset cake.
These little biscuits date back around 700 years and it is thought that they are most likely linked to St. Oswald's Feast, which marked Holy day celebrations, and was held every year for centuries. The biscuits were spiced with Caraway and Coriander seeds and were considered a real treat, however, manufacture ceased during the First World War due to the fact that butter and sugar were rationed, and they hadn't been produced since, until Jamie Oliver made them popular again, assisting the supermarket Booths to sell 5,000 just after they appeared on the popular Channel 4 programme back in 2014!

The fool isn't numbered, it is zero, representing the very beginning of something fresh.

Although I have owned several packs of Tarot cards for quite a few years now, and know a few things, I have never really mastered the art of reading them properly. I get so far with studying them, then end up becoming busy and caught up with the daily grind of life, forget everything I have learned and don't pick the cards up again for quite a while. Whilst I am recovering from surgery at the moment, I have found myself with lots of time on my hands, so I decided now would be a good time to pull out these gorgeous cards that were a recent gift from my husband for my birthday back in October, and endeavour to learn them inside and out, so eventually I won't have to refer to the book when I read!
Fancy coming along on this journey with me?

I suppose it can be pretty difficult to put yourself first without looking completely selfish to others, but take it from one who knows, constantly putting your own wants and needs on the back burner in order to facilitate the smooth running of someone else's life, can only lead to feelings of deep resentment and unhappiness within yourself! What I have learned personally, is that by always being at the beck and call of others, you will eventually achieve nothing but a personal melt down! If you don't nourish your own mind, body and soul/spirit first, then how can you ever hope to be of any use or benefit to anyone else?

It is always said that the kitchen is the heart of the home, and this is certainly true in the home of a witch, especially one who is constantly working with herbs and oils to create healing balms, teas and potions! However, kitchen magick goes beyond just herb work, and can be applied in the preparation of our daily food and drink! When you are about to prepare food for yourself and your family, begin by filling your mind with loving and thankful thoughts. Express your gratitude to Mother Earth for providing for us, and giving us the gift of foods which nourish our bodies and keep us healthy and alive!
