Hearth and Soul Hop Link Party April 25

The Hearth and Soul Hop Link Party
Hello and welcome to our Hearth and Soul Hop Link Party!  We invite you to share all family-friendly posts as well as, of course, food from the hearth to feed your soul.

I hope you had a lovely weekend. My husband and I were in London, staying at The Intercontinental Hotel in Park Lane. The hotel was built on the site of 145 Park Lane, the childhood home of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth. It was definitely apropos as on Saturday evening we enjoyed an after hours tour of the State Rooms at Buckingham Palace.

Buckingham Palace

It’s the fourth time we have taken a small, after hours group tour of the State Rooms and every time we see and learn something new. To find out more about visiting Buckingham Palace, check out my latest post on this iconic landmark.

The Dorchester Hotel London
Remember I wrote about our anniversary visit to The Dorchester, the iconic London hotel? I’ve shared some highlights of our stay in this recent post.

I’m making one of our favourite spring desserts for dinner this evening – Raspberry and Rose Jelly and Cream.

Raspberry and Rose Jelly at The Hearth and Soul Hop
The work of moments, this recipe really elevates jelly (Jello) from everyday to amazing.

Okay, on with the hop! This week I’m featuring:-
