here I am in a little cottage that evokes the energies of my ancestral lands - a cottage on the moors of Cornwall, or on the cliff tops of Ireland or Scotland. It has a hearth. I am a hedge witch {of sorts}. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. I am a gypsy; an eccentric and a mystic [I often live with a foot in two worlds]. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. Star watcher and Moon gazer. story cloth weaver. keeper of family dreams and wishes. good friend and creator of life. herbal tea drinker and potion maker.

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

from the test kitchen of ms*robyn

today I had a test run for the *comice pear cake* which I am making for my mum's 70th birthday in March. It required muscavodo sugar. I couldn't find that here so I used dark brown sugar instead & I added some grated ginger to the cake mixture. I served it up for afternoon tea today, served it with cream and - it was delicious !

What is muscovado sugar anyway? I'm not sure we'd have it here either, I wonder if it's anything like raw sugar...
