It is fall here in Alaska (muttering… son of a………). I already am putting on a stocking hat in the mornings and when I go outside, of course it is my Zen Knit hat (no pattern required, just knit and pray). I just made it this afternoon to take the chill away and added left over ham steak I fried up. Oh Em Gee!! Just yummy! I have posted this before during NaNoWHINEMo and at

What’s a Witch To do? by Jennifer Harlow
Review, Interview, Recipes and a giveway
The name of today’s book and something I tend to say all the time out loud I shrug my shoulders and add a few more rosehips, at least lately since my damn friends are so messed up health; mental and physical, they all need a bit more calming and healing energy. On my list today:
- Whip up spelled candles for
- Li – warmth and healing
- ease of pain and calming energy
- perseverance to not harm those who would harm me

How many of you out there have a man who has been sick? I mean really sick, you know dying?! Well I have one and the ManBeast is dying! Just ask him! At one point in time, he wanted me to bring a cot downstairs because had no energy to go sleep in the bed. His reasoning to not go upstairs? He did not want to get germs on the pillow cases. I wish I could have gotten a recording of it because it truly was horrific! Instead I dug through our cupboards and cookbooks and online and ended up piecing together this recipe.
Sundays usually mean Geoff is sleeping in after staying up late because he does not have to work today. Sundays are our Saturday morning, the beginning of the weekend. But Geoff swapped out getting Tuesday off so he could play Mass Effect 3 from the midnight launch earlier last week. (Which I have to admit was so much fun! Great game and we had a blast at the launch as many of you witnessed via my photo onslaught
I grew up with a wonderful set of parents, I was one of the lucky ones. So many stories surround the dysfunctional aspects of childhood, the damaged people who survive and their fight to find themselves and find their way back to a place of balance. Many of these stories involve the journey to find the love of their lost faith, Doxology is one of these books.
This story is about more than simple familial dysfunction. It is tale of fathers, sons and brothers and a journey back to home to find the lost ties that are of this faith that is so deeply rooted in family. It is a story of these men and the ties that bind them together. Living with a southern man, I can say that food is one way that has always bound his family together. Geoff is an Atheist so faith and belief do not play a part in his life. But come Sunday evening when he is with his family, even if he was not at the church pew that morning, he can be found breaking bread with them all.
It is the same with my family, we may not agree with our varying beliefs and how we practice them. Or agree with how to raise our children or how we live our lives. But we can all agree to sit down and share a meal. To share our love for each other, to feel the warmth that is not just in the bread we are breaking but in our hearts because despite it all we are family.
JUST in time for Valentine’s Day!
It started with me digging through the fridge. I did not feel like making anything within the meal planner. Hoping to find inspiration I started digging around the fridge. In the deli drawer I found this lonely packet of KFC BBQ sauce. I looked down and saw I had a package of pie crust. It all fell into place from there. I had made English Meat Pasties last week. Geoff calls them beef pocket pies, but they are just plain old English Pasties.
Being that I am such a lover of bacon and I live with a southerner I am not ashamed to say I have bacon grease on hand at all times so I can make country gravy any time we want. Honestly my meal planning is usually boring. I plan ahead for baking and desserts, but meals? It is usually me flying by the seat of my pants. These were a complete win! In no way could I possibly know just how good these would taste.
Geoff finally stopped eating and looked over at me and exclaimed
