The Hearth and Soul Hop September 8

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

The week is off to a great start here with the lovely news that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting another Royal Baby! The sister or brother for Prince George is due to arrive sometime in the spring of 2015.

Last week I celebrated Zero Waste Week here on the blog and also wrote about The Benefits of Shopping Locally. Do you enjoy shopping locally too?

Thank you to everyone who shared posts last week. Today I’m featuring three lovely posts.

The Hearth and Soul Blog Hop

Cydnee of Tampa Cake Girl shared her memories and her mother’s vintage recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies – which Cydnee bakes using the same baking sheet her mother used.

Erica of Erica’s Recipes shared a healthy, mouthwatering recipe for Lemon Dill Salmon over Summer Vegetable Stuffing.

  8. Thanks for hosting, April! I’ve been “off-blogging” while hubby and I were moving but I’m back now and this week I’m sharing a recipe for my favorite gluten free and vegan pizza crust, as well as a review of a restaurant in Winnipeg, Manitoba that has a 6 page gluten free menu (which is pretty awesome if you ask me 😉 )

    • It’s lovely to have you back, Danielle. I hope the move went well. I look forward to your posts. A six page gluten free menu is absolutely awesome – sounds like such a nice restaurant!

  9. I definitely prefer to shop locally whenever possible.
