Fall Comfort from The Hearth and Soul Link Party

Welcome once again to The Hearth and Soul Link Party! This week I’m featuring Fall Comfort posts and looking forward to the cozy days to come.

The Hearth and Soul Link Party where we welcome posts about anything that feeds your soul
At The Hearth and Soul Link Party, posts about anything that feeds your soul are welcome – from family, home, decorating, crafts and DIY to travel, organisation, book reviews, the arts and self improvement. And of course, food from the hearth to feed your soul is a real favourite here too!

We had a yet another banner week last week at Hearth and Soul, with more links than ever! Thank you all so very much for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Community, and for visiting and sharing each other’s posts. I’m so excited to see the party growing like this, and I appreciate every one of you!

Are you craving fall comfort flavours as much as I am? It has been all about warming dishes like my traditional British Beef and Ale Stew and my Parsnip Topped Vegetable Pies in my kitchen this week. I also made one of my favourite fall muffins.

My warmly spiced, deeply delicious Pumpkin Gingerbread Muffins are perfect for breakfast, tea time and snacks

Inspired by a visit to England’s Lake District, my warmly spiced, deeply delicious Pumpkin Gingerbread Muffins taste even better a day after they are baked. They will keep for days at room temperature, but they will freeze well if the temptation becomes too much!

I’m still working on more posts about Venice, but in the meantime, I’ve updated my post on my favourite hotel in Venice.

Hotel Danieli - The Place to Stay in Venice for luxury, history and comfort

I’ve added more photographs of this romantic, historic hotel and hopefully captured a bit of the magic that is the Hotel Danieli.
