Hearth and Soul Hop Link Party September 21

The Hearth and Soul Hop Link Party
Welcome to the The Hearth and Soul Hop link party! We welcome any family friendly posts you share on your blog – home & family posts, gardening, crafts, DIY, encouraging, inspiring posts and of course, food from the hearth to feed your soul. We are a ‘no rules’ link party!

I’m excited to be attending the Food Blogger Connect Conference in London on Friday. You can read my “60 Seconds with” feature on the FBC website here. Anyone else planning to attend?

British Food Fortnight on AprilJHarris.com It’s British Food Fortnight here in the UK and we are celebrating the abundance of delicious, high quality fruit, vegetables, meat, dairy products and artisanal foods that is grown and produced in our green and pleasant land. I’m a big supporter of local, seasonal food so it’s one of my favourite foodie celebrations. I’ve shared more about the celebrations as well as links to some delicious recipes here.

Spiced Apple and Almond Cake for British Food Fortnight on AprilJHarris.com

I’ve been enjoying using seasonal produce in my recipes, especially this Spiced Apple and Almond Cake.

Lemon Crinkle Cookies on AprilJHarris.com

I also shared a recipe for Lemon Crinkle Cookies, perfect for anytime as well as to pin for your Christmas cookie trays.
