I guess #introductions are in order. Hello, my name's Elisha! Other than writing, I've been taking up cooking to pass the time during this pandemic. I like to bake but my skills are probably more Nailed It! material than The Great British Bake Off - here's a cake I made to prove it. Anyway, nice to meet you! #chocolate #cake #baking
This had got to be one of the best dishes I've made so far! Folks, dubu-jorim is a good way to cook tofu :D

The Cailleach is a Scottish winter deity.
The goddess is also the creator god in some Gaelic creation myths, carving the landscape out of raw rock.
She is said to rule over the winter and cause dangerous whirlpools along the shoreline, her throne is ben nevis.
Some local legends have her as an opposing force to the goddess Brigid who rules in the summer.
the UK's oldest surviving shrine, Tigh nan Cailleach , is dedicated to her.
over time The Cailleach became used at the default hag in many Scottish folk tales, similar to Baba Yaga from Russian folklore.
