Christmas Treats from the Hearth and Soul Link Party

Hi there! Welcome to the Hearth and Soul Link Party! This week I’m featuring Christmas treats.

The Hearth and Soul Blog Hop Link Party

Here at Hearth and Soul, we love recipes for food from the hearth to feed your soul, but we also welcome all family friendly posts, whether they be about home, family, travel, self improvement, crafts or DIY.

It’s definitely beginning to feel a lot like Christmas and the holidays round here.

Christmas treats from the Hearth and Soul Link Party

Last week on the blog it was all about making your own Christmas wreath from fresh foliage and flowers, one of my family’s favourite comfort foods – Traditional British Beef and Ale Stew – and a deliciously spiced Brandy and Mincemeat Cake. It’s the perfect cake for everyone who wants all the flavours of Christmas in a cake that is lighter and more moist than traditional dark fruit cakes.

  5. Hi April…Sooooooo many delicious holiday treats to try! I just can’t decide which ones to make first! This week, I am sharing a super-easy holiday or weeknight dish using turkey tenderloins which can be made quite festive by topping with my Apple-Pear-Cranberry Chutney! As always, many thanks to you and Swathi so much for all your incredible support. I am so appreciative of all your hard work. Have a wonderful rest of the week my special friend!

  6. April, the first thing I’m going to check out is your cake. I’m a mincemeat fan but have not yet made any this year. Soon! Thank you for hosting.

  7. Thank you for hosting, April! Beautiful Christmas spirit over here. I like all the features and I am on my way to read about your brandy and mincemeat cake!
