Kitchen Witch: A Memoir

KItchen Witch A Memoir

This books is a very interesting read. It describes the life in detail of Cora Anderson who is on of my spiritual ancestors. She was a very wise women and a powerful witch.

This book is her memories and life story. There are bits of witchcraft wisdom in there held in a single chapter or a few poems (the tradition she was involved in creating has a lot of poetry as lore). The most interesting bits of this book were not in the folk wisdom or the recipes (which Cora was well known for) but were in the meat of the book and the first section which was all about her life story.

If you were expecting a book with details about craft workings in her life this is not that book. This book tells her life story and includes some of her award-winning recipes. If you are willing to read the life story about one of the crafts best known elders you would do well to read this book.

The entries in her memories bring me back to simpler times while yes there were hardships but the solutions to the problems were simpler and folk remedies and treatments. The story of her life is very uplifting and encouraging.

About loona wynd

Call me Loona. I am a part time model and an amateur writer. My blogs serve as my primary method of publication at the moment. These blogs are also a way for me to build an audience and get my name known. I have been involved with my spiritual path for half my life now. I have spent that whole time seeking and exploring every path I could find. While I will always identify as a witch and a Pagan, I do believe there are lessons that every path can teach me. When I am not writing, or modeling I spend my time watching science fiction (I'm a big Doctor Who fan as well as Warehouse 13, Eureka, Babylon 5, and other shows). I also enjoy shows like Ink Master, Bar Rescue, Hotel Hell, Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares. I also love Bones for the anthropological aspects. When not watching tv I spend time playing video games. I'm a retro gamer at heart. I would rather play a game on my NES than the newest game for my PC. I actually have more NES and SNES games than I do Wii, N64 or PS2. I do play Starcraft2, Everquest, Guild Wars, and random Facebook games. I also enjoy reading. My reading will often be in the spiritual or philosophical fields. This is what I enjoy to study. I also love to read science fiction. Anne McCaffery is actually my favorite sci-fi writer. Her Pern and Accorna series are my favorites. I currently hold an associates degree in Liberal Studies or Liberal Arts. My focus is on folklore, philosophy, classics of world lit, anthropology, and history. I do have a vast interest in Physics. I was actually happy with how much my physics teacher was able to connect modern physics with ancient and modern metaphysical philosophy.
