Revisiting: Empress + Bread

Revisiting: Empress + Bread

rw_empressThis week I am on my wedding trip. Therefore, I’ve set up repeats of some of my personal favorite posts from my Tarot&Food series.

First up: Why I associate the Empress with baking bread.

So, it’s time to visit the kitchen again. Yesterday I indulged in one of my favorite past times. Y’all know I love to cook. Well one of the most indulgent, decadent things I do is bread. I know–you were expecting chocolate silk pie, right? It’s funny. For as much of a sweet tooth as I have, I don’t bake very many desserts. But I love bread….(read more)

Tarot&Food: Four of Coins Baked Beans

I’ve been struggling with which card to give to my baked beans recipe. It’s one that I make for large crowds. It’s also one that is one of my requested recipes because folks really like them. However, I couldn’t figure out which card was best represented for me by this one.

I’ve been struggling with which card to give to my baked beans recipe. It’s one that I make for large crowds. It’s also one that is one of my requested recipes because folks really like them. However, I couldn’t figure out which card was best represented for me by this one.

I mean do I give it to a King since all those beans are gonna cause gas? Do I give it to the suit of Water since it’s an emotional connection to my mother? Do I make it an Air card again because of the reason I would give it to a King? Or the Hermit?

Maybe I’m too focused on the Continue reading “Tarot&Food: Four of Coins Baked Beans”

Tarot&Food: Three of Coins Sausage Balls

Quick and easy. I needed something quick and easy. And cheap. Cheap would be a bonus as well since I had to make a lot for an office potluck. My writing partner mentioned she was making sausage balls for her holiday dinner.

Tarot & Food: Two of Swords Creole Chicken

Creole Chicken, King Solomon, dead babies and swords? What on earth is Arwen talking about today?

This is a super simple dish. I had no CLUE what I was doing when I first made it and it turned out really tasty. I did learn a trick or two that I will share with you.

I am giving this one to the Two of Swords because of the Judgment of Solomon as well as the concept of Yin and Yang. Continue reading “Tarot & Food: Two of Swords Creole Chicken”

Tarot & Food: Queen of Wands ShowOff Fried Chicken

It is rare to find her just not doing anything. Because of this, I have always thought of her as the very busy Queen of Wands. She is mentally sharp and a real trickster as well. One of her favorite things to do when I was younger was to hide out in various spots so she could jump out and SCARE me.

For most of us who love to cook, we have one or more signature dishes. These are what I like to call my show-off dishes. I have comfort recipes and others but the show off ones take more time but yield full tummies and blissful smiles. One of my best dishes is my fried chicken.

Contrary to popular myth, Southern women do not Continue reading “Tarot & Food: Queen of Wands ShowOff Fried Chicken”
