Giving trick-or-treaters the finger


Demon hand made of cookies! Yum!

I haven’t blogged in ages, but today I just had to share. I love Halloween, and really miss celebrating it like I did when I lived in the USA. Here in the UK it’s not widely celebrated nor even welcomed by many people, and there are very few trick-or-treaters on the streets.

Instead of bellyaching about this (as usual), I looked for a culinary way to celebrate Halloween that was in accordance with its ancient roots … to honour the connections between life and death, and revivify a sacred Pagan or Celtic ritual to usher in the long, dark nights to come, or protect the crops from plague.

I stumbled upon some ancient wisdom from — you guessed it — Martha Stewart! Thanks to her, anyone who stops by our house looking for a treat this year, will get the finger …

Try the recipe yourself, and happy hauntings…

    Hello Wendy

    Nice to see you blogging again –those fingers look pretty gruesome.

    Do you think you’ll ever come running again – it would be nice to see you.

      Hi Heather! Glad you like my fingers:) Not sure about the running — my foot is better, but I’m nervous about re-injury.
      I hope to see you at the dinner on the 9th.
      all the best,
      Wendy
