  • Introduction

    Eat, drink, and make magick! These are very good words by which to live, and ones that this book happily advocates. Better still, Bubble, Bubble, Toil and Trouble shows you how to whip up a very special kind of magick while you're eating, drinking, and being merry: the kind that requires little more than thoughtfulness and old-fashioned ingenuity, yields truly spectacular results. In fact, enchanted foods and beverages are perfect vehicles by which to feed spiritual hunger and quench mystical thirst, while titillating your taste buds at the same time.

    Although you might normally conclude that there's nothing remotely magickal about breakfast, lunch, dinner, and their preparation, this book will change all that. Say farewell to ho-hum meals without any meaning, and say hello to spell-crafted magickal munchies.

    See, Bubble, Bubble, Toil and Trouble is designed to help you think of your kitchen and the process of cooking in an innovative and delightful way. Consider the aroma of freshly baked cookies or the scent of warm

  • bread, and how both tempt even the most stalwart of individuals into nibbling. When you do, is there a whimsical smile on your face? Do warm memories trickle into your mind? Does your stomach rumble just a bit? Yes! This reaction is exactly the kind of response that all the spell-recipes and processes in this book are designed to create when partnered with a little of your own spiritual vision and focus.

    How? First, recognize that throughout history the kitchen has always been a special room, a kind of sacred space. And edibles and recipe components considered "soul food" can be found in nearly every historical and cultural setting. These foods are believed to manifest in specific personal or communal results when prepared properly and consumed. For example, in Japan people eat rice on their birthday for luck and wish fulfillment like we eat cake! In China eating apricots improves prophetic abilities, in Europe eating goose on Michaelmas Day brings prosperity, and in Scotland having pork on the spring equinox promotes longevity. Gives a whole new meaning to the modern phrase "You are what you eat," doesn't it?

    Despite our fast-food society, there can be far more meaning to N the entire cooking-and-eating process than simply feeding one's R

    T stomach. Now you'll be satisfying your spirit at the same time. Don't

    o worry, this doesn't mean getting fancy. In fact, the entire philosophy u

    o of this book boils down to simplicity, pleasure, and fuss-free efforts.

    c: No "toil and trouble" whatsoever! You should never have to reach T

    beyond your spice rack, vision, or personal abilities to make the o spark of magick happen. Just open yourself up to the magickal N

    potentials and possibilities that are around you every day, especially those in your own home.
