The Hearth and Soul Hop Thanksgiving Edition

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

I was in San Francisco last week, one of my favourite cities in the world. We have just returned home so I’m a little behind on visiting and sharing some of your posts from last week but I will definitely catch up within the next couple of days!

Thank you so much to everyone who visited and shared last week. I love cranberries in both Thanksgiving and Christmas recipes and as it’s Thanksgiving in the US this week, today I’m featuring some of the cranberry recipes that were shared with the hop last week.

The Hearth and Soul Hop

Cranberry Filled Muffins from Wine Lady Cooks

Cranberry Jell-O Mold from  from The McCallum’s Shamrock Patch

Cranberry Sauce from Cooking on a Budget

Microwave Maple Orange Cranberry Sauce from Sumptuous Spoonfuls

Gluten Free Cranberry Pumpkin Muffins from RCH Reviews

Cranberry Apple Walnut Stuffing from Cincy Shopper

If you love cranberries as much as I do, you may also enjoy my Cranberry Orange and Ginger Loaf and my Carrot, Macadamia and Cranberry Muffins.

Ok, on with the Thanksgiving Edition of the Hearth and Soul Hop! I celebrated Thanksgiving with my family back in October as our heritage is Canadian but I do wish everyone who is celebrating on Thursday a very Happy Thanksgiving!

    Thank you for the party. Glad you enjoyed SF so much. I haven’t been there since 1994. I am shopping today for Thanksgiving because we are expecting a snow storm in NY on Wednesday… crazy.

    • Thank you, Diane! I hope the snow isn’t as bad as they say it’s going to be. I heard on the news you were expecting snow on the East Coast and just thought – not again!! Whatever the weather, I wish you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving 🙂

  7. I was in San Francisco too! My first time and I loved it!

  8. April, I’m not a great fan of cities but I DO like San Francisco!
