Holiday Recipes at The Hearth and Soul Link Party

The Hearth and Soul Link Party where we welcome posts about anything that feeds your soul
Hi there! Welcome to the Hearth and Soul Link Party! I’m thinking about holiday recipes and ideas this week, but as always I’m excited about anything that feeds the soul!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas here. Except with a garden redesign going on, it’s also kind of muddy round here too! All our grass and patio was lifted today, in preparation for re-landscaping, new patio, a totally new lawn, plus a bit of a facelift for the rest of the garden. I’m excited for the finished product, that is for sure!!

I’m also working with a lovely lady on a new blog redesign…and I’m looking forward to the finished product of that too! So exciting!!

Are you making holiday preparations? Have you put your wreath up yet?

A family recipe for Delicious Cherry Slice Bar Cookies from Karren at Oh My Heartsie Girl is perfect for your holiday cookie tray

Even if space is tight you can still make a Pretty DIY Christmas Tree with Simple Nature Decor

Delicious holiday food can be healthy too. Try this allergy friendly Christmas Salad Slaw from Judee of Gluten Free A – Z

This Holiday Cookie Decorating Box from Ash and Eileen at Just Measuring Up is a great gift for kids. I know some adults who would love it too!

I really miss eggnog from my days in Canada. Not many folks in the UK are familiar with it, and I’ve only just been able to find it! These wonderful Eggnog Doughnuts from Cook with Sara will definitely help me in my quest to encourage its popularity over here!

I’m excited to see what you will share this week!

    Sounds like you are very busy! I look forward to seeing your new blog design! thanks for hosting! I love stopping by your party!

  9. What a great opportunity to make a Christmas wreath with the help of a professional, hope we get to see it, along with your landscaping makeover. Its always worth a bit of mess. Wishing you a great week, happy holiday preparations!

    • Thank you so much, Karren. I’m hoping to share some photographs of the garden when it’s done. It’s slowly coming together, although we’ve just had lots of sand (for the patio) and stones (for round the kitchen garden) delivered into the driveway so it’s still a bit messy…At least the 6 tons of topsoil has been spread over the garden! I’m excited to see how it turns out 🙂

  10. I can’t wait to see your new blog design! How exciting!

  11. Looking forward to your new blog design. I’m thinking of making some changes to my site as well, and hoping to have time over Christmas break.
    Blessings to you!

  12. Happy land & blog scaping! 😀 Have a wonderful week.

  13. April, thank you for hosting AND for the easy appetizers. So happens, my post today can also be used as an appetizer (like a pate), though French Canadians enjoy it for breakfast.

  14. April, I am really enjoying the variety of holiday goodies your friends have been sharing this season and look forward to trying some soon. Garden re-designs can be challenging, but I know when it complete you both will be thrilled! Have a lovely weekend and as always, many thanks for all your hard work and support.

    • There really are a lot of lovely goodies this week! Thank you for the encouragement, Linda. We are about two-thirds through the redesign – just at the point where it’s easy to get discouraged! I hope you have a lovely weekend too! I’m very grateful for all your help and support, my friend 🙂
