The Hearth and Soul Hop July 21

The Hearth and Soul Blog Hop
Welcome to the Hearth and Soul Hop! We are the blog hop for family and comfort food recipes, healthy, sustainable living, gardening, family, kids, crafts, homemaking and DIY. Encouraging and inspiring posts are welcome too.

It’s been a busy summer here with lots of visiting and entertaining. Last week I shared a wonderful Baked Lemon Cheesecake that my husband pronounced “the best cheesecake I’ve ever eaten”. It was really easy to make too! I was definitely in a baking mood over the weekend, making a family recipe for Bran Muffins for breakfast and my Raspberry Almond Tart for dessert Sunday night. (I’ll be sharing the Raspberry Almond Tart again soon!)

My husband and I are getting ready for our first vacation on our own in over 15 years – it’s the first trip we’ve taken in ages where one of us isn’t at a conference or working. Plus we are headed to a place that has been on my bucket list since I was a little girl…Bermuda! I can’t wait to share it with you! If you have been to Bermuda and have any tips or must-visit places please do let me know in the comments.

This week I’m featuring two delightful recipes made with cherries:
