Welcome to another edition of The Hearth and Soul Blog Hop. Hearth and Soul is a blog hop for recipes using healthy ingredients, family and comfort food recipes, articles about healthy living, real /slow/ local/sustainable food, foraging, herbal remedies, organics and gardening. As much as possible, recipes should be homemade from scratch.
I’m in the Bay Area in California at the moment with my husband. I love our visits here as although he is working, we are able to enjoy some lovely weather, do some sightseeing and visit with friends. We spent this past weekend in San Francisco celebrating my husband’s birthday and our wedding anniversary. We had lunch in Sausalito on Saturday and then headed to the Intercontinental Mark Hopkins on Nob Hill. We enjoyed some amazing views from our room.
We visited to the hotel’s famous Top of the Mark bar and their restaurant the Nob Hill Club, which features local, seasonal farm to table dining. The menu lists all their suppliers along with the distance in miles and the time it takes by road for the food to travel to the hotel.
San Francisco is one of our favourite places to visit. I’ve written a number of blog posts about it over the years including San Francisco in a Day, a post about the historic 49 Mile Drive.
This week I’m featuring three timely celebration recipes.
Michelle at Ms.enPlace shared a very interesting post about Mardi Gras as well as her beautiful Mardi Gras Croquembouche.
Kara from The Joys of Boys made a wholesome Rainbow Fruit Tray (with treats at both ends of the rainbow) to help her children celebrate St Patrick’s Day.
And Christine from Once Upon a Time in a Bed of Wildflowers offers a warming grown up Irish Hot Chocolate for a more adult celebration of that special day.
Right, let’s go!
