KITCHEN MAGIC

The magician had a book
And the book was titled
“The Service Cookbook
by
Ida Bailey Allen”

And I knew that this book
Contained all the secrets
Of the Kitchen Magic.
I held my breath,
As I opened the pages
Many of them stained
And darkened and shredded
From use,
But I knew
It contained the Magician’s Secrets;

Shortening+sugar+egg+vanilla+flour
+baking powder+ salt+raisins+milk=
Old Fashioned Raisin Cookies

Or

Sugar+milk+baking soda+additional sugar+
Pecans=
Pralines

and

Milk+tapioca+cornmeal+
Molasses+ sugar+butter+salt=
Indian Pudding

Although I was a very young child,
I studied the Magician’s book, determined to
Learn all its secrets,
And when the opportunity presented itself
I stole the book of
Kitchen Magic.
Now it was mine
And I could perform
All the magical things
That happen only in
The kitchen.
And I did.
