Luna's Kitchen Magic turns 2!

One of the best gifts I have ever recieved is from my long time other half, who generally buys me things that I wouldn't buy myself but truly want.

I believe in magic, in spirit and in putting the best of yourself into your food. Today is the second anniversary of Luna's Kitchen Magic and it has been a bumpy ride. I feel though for the first time, that I am finally in a better place, both in life and with the blog.

So in honor of my blogday and to honor the gift I was given, I am giving away a copy of Witch In The Kitchen by Titania Hardie.

When I was at the Winery I made Lavender ice cream from the book, that is absolutely heavenly! I was inspired to candy Borage flowers for a white chocolate flourless cake, and at home I have made a cordial of fruit and vodka that was amazing. I got excited about using flavors such as lavender and rose, and made fresh pasta for the first time, all from ths book.

I love the sweet pastry cooked in a pan, which comes out perfectly every time and one of my saddest stories is when my oven broke on Thanksgiving while I was trying to make Damper Bread!

Next I really want to make the Thai King Prawns and the Blackberry Plum Jam. Oh and the Lavender Panna Cotta is just lovely! Hmmm...I think I just found some exciting new inspiration!

Thank you for reading LKM and I hope that I will continue to keep you entertained and well fed. Always remember that the most important ingredient in magical cooking is you!

  1. Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you! Happy birthday, dear blog, happy birthday to you!!!!!

    Congratulations, Luna!

    Do blogs have the terrible twos?? Hee hee. Just kidding. Here's to a great new year and I look forward to reading your adventures. My suggestion for the blog is more food adventures, hopefully with a few friends in tow. Hint hint

  2. I love hearing about what you learned in culinary school. I am always looking for cool tips, as I rarely stick to a recipe exactly. Happy second birthday! (could not figure out how to leave my email addy :(

  3. Congratulations on 2 years! Our blogs are evolutions of ourselves, and no doubt you've seen yourself grow and continue to grow. May you have many more years and successful projects ahead!

    Come to LA and run around the city with us!

  4. Happy two years from one kitchen magician to another. I think you should take poor Heather out and play. If you were closer, I'd tag along but I'll have to settle for virtually.

  5. congratulations, luna! here's to many more accomplishments.

    i think you should have some shows on foods people cook/eat during holidays like persian new year, passover and easter.
