INVOKE LOVE CRANBERRY & ORANGE CORNBREAD

Love is an interesting emotion to put into your food. Most people who love to cook already unintentionally place a large amount of their energetic selves into their food.

In fact, the number of sayings associated with food and love are numerous and plenty. So what makes it any different when you are cooking with a magical intention or not?  In this case, you can help invoke the emotion of a specific type of love.  This can be friendship, relationship, parental, or really any "ship" which you think it is worth it to put a little bit of work into. 

Before making this recipe it is suggested that you open up a magical circle the width of the entire space that you will be cooking in.  This will help focus the energies to those of the specific type of love that you are working. 

*Sometimes when my children seem to be getting into more fights than usual with each other, I add an extra drop of sibling love into their desserts. 

Once your circle is opened, light a candle color of your choice but a default, in this case, can be a light pink or red. 


**As always please ensure that you are putting in your intention when you stir your batter and put in your ingredients.
