This hop is being hosted by Toltec Jewels of Jewel School Friends. Once again, this blog hop is a chance for me to share some of my favorite non jewelry related things about Autumn. This is the main time of year that I bake and I wanted to make something traditional to the Season, so I found a lovely recipe for Remembrance cookies to celebrate Samhain from Ye Old Witches Brew Magazine. Rosemary is for remembrance and the idea is that you eat these cookies and think about your ancestors. This recipe got great feedback so I will definitely make these again. Feel free to decorate with icing if you like. There is also no reason why you can’t use lavender, sage, or any other herb you like when eating these year round.
My friend and I were also supposed to make corn dollies last weekend, but it got postponed until today, so I will post pictures later if people are interested. We’re going to use the instructions published on Michelle’s blog, Muffin Tin Mom. It’s actually amazing what you can make with cereal grains. I found a fascinating website that shows some work of the Guild of Straw Craftsmen that explains what a corn dolly really is. I can promise you, my creation will not look like this! Wow.
The final thing I’d like to share is one of my favorite songs about the Season:
