Magical Food for Happiness & Peace

magical food, happiness, peace, kitchen witch, rachel patterson

We lead such busy lives now that sometimes finding that sense of peace, balance and happiness is a bit of a trial.  I love to cook and eat, in fact heading into the kitchen for me is a way to relax and feel happy.    The foods in this section have the magical properties of allowing us to unwind, to chill out and just relax…take a deep breath in…and let it go…ahhhhhhh.  Let go of that which does not serve you and release the things that you can do nothing about.  Pour yourself a glass of wine (just the one), sit down, put your feet up and eat something that gives you pleasure.  If you don’t like any of the items on this list then avoid them because eating something you don’t like will definitely not make you happy no matter how strong the magical properties.

Foods for happiness & peace:

Apples, apricot, chocolate, cucumber, cumin, fish, honey, lentils, lettuce, marigold, marjoram, milk, olives, oregano, passion fruit, peach, pizza, raspberries, rose, saffron, wine

Apple & Cider Cake

What’s not to love about this cake?  Delicious apples and yummy cider, it will make your heart sing.

55g /2oz sultanas

150ml/5 fl oz dry cider

1 large cooking apple, peeled, cored and chopped

115g /4oz butter, softened

115g /4oz light muscovado sugar

Put the sultanas in a bowl and pour over the cider.  Dice the apples into pieces about the same size as the sultanas and add them to the cider.

Cream together the butter and muscovado sugar until light and fluffy.  Gradually beat in the eggs a little at a time.

Sift the flour, baking powder and cinnamon into the mixture and stir until combined.  Fold in the flour and then the fruit and cider.  Mix gently until all the ingredients are incorporated.

Spoon the mixture into your prepared tin, sprinkle the Demerara sugar over the top and bake for about 45/50 minutes.  Leave in the tin to cool for a few minutes then turn out onto a wire rack.
