Do you remember the days of your youth, playing in the kitchen while Mom or Dad made something wonderful to eat? Sometimes the aroma of the dish was enough to take you into another reality altogether. Remember how wonderful it was when you got to help? And how good everything was, especially if you had a hand in making it!

WishFaery would like to collect the recipes for the food you made in your youth — or the food you are making in your child's youth! Share your recipe - we'd all like to sample it!

Here are some of the recipes we've collected so far. We'd like to be able to tell you we've tried them all... but that wouldn't be the truth, and everyone knows that the truth is very very important to the fae! So we'll just tell you that the recipes presented here were collected from other children and other parents of children (or even grandparents of children!) and let it go at that.

In order to make the recipe easier to print out or save, we present the recipies on a white background (watch your eyes!).

For the first time since we moved to our present home, in summer of 1999 the Pomegranate tree that was growing next door produced a plenty of pomegranates to pick, peruse, peel and use. I have always loved the pomegranate, even before I had seen one, because it is featured prominently in the annual vegetation cycle story of Persephone and Pluto.

"Proserpine/Persephone, daughter of Zeus and Demeter, was the goddess of fertility and queen of the underworld. When she was still a beautiful maiden, Pluto seized her and held her captive in his underworld. Though Demeter eventually persuaded the gods to let her daughter return to her, Persephone was required to remain in the underworld for four months because Pluto had tricked her into eating a pomegranate there. When Persephone left the earth, the flowers withered and the grain died, but when she returned, life blossomed anew."

Imagine my surprise this year when my Dad sent a picture of a pomegranate flower and its fruit, asking what it was. Dad— here are the recipies I promised you!

If you are like me, there is no such thing as "enough pomegranates". Here are just a few recipes that use this ancient fruit:
