As you may have already guessed, my name is Millie Mae. I am a Environmental Scientist, nutritionist, forest lover, surfer and plant-based ice cream maker, based on the Sunshine Coast, QLD, Australia.
Hello Millie Mae is the blog I created to remind you of the long-lost art of intertwining food and magic. Yes, magic can be done in the sacred space of your kitchen, with common yet potent ingredients and energies, you can create incredible recipes for magical purposes. Every natural ingredient, plants, herbs, flowers etc. has energy, and that energy has unique magical properties. Some are so common that you probably have them in your kitchen already, and the others are just as easy to find.
This isn’t anything new or woo-woo, in fact cooking and magic have long been included in rituals, traditions, ancient teachings, herbalism and folk healing for thousands of years, yet science is only just catching up now. With the industrial revolution and mainstream pharmaceuticals, the common knowledge of healing foods, magic and alchemy is gradually being lost.
I hope you enjoy the blog and its recipes, and are able to use them to bring magic into your kitchen, elevating the way you cook and prepare meals.
I’d also love to connect, so come say hello on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest.
