* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Making Asherah Cakes
« on: September 07, 2012, 11:12:48 pm »
The Bible mentions raisin cakes in conjunction with worship of Asherah, the Queen of Heaven (Hosea 3:1). I'm interested in including these Asherah cakes in a ritual for Her, but I can't find any information on how they were or are made, other than they're cakes and contain raisins. I'm guessing, with a passing familiarity of Judaic ritual cooking they probably include olive oil and maybe salt, but I don't know. I can barely cook as it is, and have no idea how to make a new recipe, beyond throw things in the pot and hope for the best.

Does anyone have a recipe for Asherah cakes, or some assistance in making a recipe?

You could offer raisin bread or raisin muffins.
I am the Goddess of Who I can Become. I mix the magic of the sorceress with the blade of a warrior. I walk the liminal pathways to see the face of the Goddess, both terrible and kind. As She stares back at me, I tremble in awe and ecstasy.  --SatAset

That's a good idea.  I found a couple of recipes, an easy one here and another one with a larger ingredient list from a "cooking with the Bible" website here.

Here's one likely candidate: http://www.ingredientsinc.net/2011/03/hamentashen-cookies-a-purim-tradition/ Jewish tradition calls it "Hamen's Hat," but some people believe their resemblance to a yoni indicates they were originally Cakes for the Queen.

EDIT: they're best filled with poppy seed jam!
