A Perfect Witch's Dozen
Blue & Purple Flowers In The Garden
Once I started thinking about witches, witchy, and Wicca etc., I found I couldn't stop. Power of the witch indeed. That's the kind of thing that grows of its own volition. And soon, there were 13 pages, a proper witch's dozen.

- Tales of American Witches: The Witch & Origin of the Baker's Dozen
The origin of the baker's dozen takes us back to New Amsterdam and to the story of a baker who learns a lesson from a witch and Saint Nicholas.
Cayenne Chocolate Snickerdoodles
These are a great favorite with witches - Cayenne Chocolate Snickerdoodles. I know I love them.
It has to do with that whole opposites attract thing. You've got your luscious chocolate snickerdoodle combined with a quick bite of cayenne pepper. Truly a brilliant combination.
Call us what you will, we go by many names - healer, hedge witch, kitchen witch, shaman, and more.
