Gingerbread: A Magickal Recipe for Yule

As the Kitchen Witch knows, natural magick can be found in certain foods and recipes with the use of herbs.  Your most mundane everyday recipe can be chock full of magick.  Most people would be surprised at how pertinent the use of certain spices and herbs are, particularly in holiday recipes centered around festivals and celebration.  Following is a recipe for gingerbread, an old time favorite for this winter season; and following the recipe is a list of the ingredients used that contain the spark of magick.
