Easter and Passover Recipes from The Hearth and Soul Hop

The Hearth and Soul Blog Hop

Welcome to The Hearth and Soul Hop, a blog hop for recipes using healthy ingredients, family and comfort food recipes, articles about healthy living, real, local and sustainable food, foraging, herbal remedies, organics and gardening. As much as possible, recipes should be homemade from scratch.

We are still going through a very busy season in our lives but my husband and I have been making a concerted effort to Take Time Out. This weekend we spent some time walking, We live just ten minutes from gorgeous fields and forest in one direction and about fifteen minutes from the Thames Path in the other. Here we are on the public footpath through the fields at Purley on Thames.

It’s so refreshing to be able to get outdoors now the weather is nicer. It’s still fairly cold here though! I was very pleased to discover that the bluebells are blooming.

The bluebells in my garden are a bit behind these and will probably bloom later in the week.

Yesterday was Palm Sunday in the Christian calendar and Passover begins this evening so today I am featuring Easter and Passover Recipes from last week’s hop.

  6. Hi April,
    I have been taking our dog for two walks a day in our fields because I so happy to not be tripping over snow and ice. I live in a town with a lot of expat Brits. They say our fields remind them of home. Happy Easter, April have a wonderful Spring.
