More Wonderful Recipes from The Hearth and Soul Blog Hop

The Hearth and Soul Hop button
Hello and welcome to the Hearth and Soul Blog Hop, the blog hop for recipes using healthy ingredients, family and comfort food recipes, articles about healthy living, real /slow/ local/sustainable food, foraging, herbal remedies, organics and gardening. As much as possible, recipes should be homemade from scratch.

It’s still very wet and flooded here in England. When my husband and I went for a walk on Saturday it became apparent that Thames Path is actually mostly just The Thames now.

With the very wet weather we are totally into comfort food here so today I’m featuring a satisfying and wholesome breakfast, lunch and dinner.

  1. Thanks for featuring my recipe April…I am very honored! Thanks also for hosting and have a great week! 🙂

  2. Thank you, April! Have a wonderful week! 🙂

  3. Thanks for hosting!

    Incredible pictures! I’m glad you’re able to stay dry in your home.

  4. April,
    We’ve been having a difficult winter too with tons of snow, ice and frigid temps. I brought some hearty comfort food this week. Thanks for hosting the party.

    • I’ve been hearing about the cold, ice and snow in North America, Annamaria. It must feel like such a long winter. We only had a small dose of it when we visited in January! Thank you for sharing a warming recipe with us 🙂

  5. Thank you April for another party 🙂
    I wish you a great week

  6. We are all having strange weather. Here in the Northeast of the US we have been getting snowstorm after snowstorm. But I would take it over flooding. I heard it is pretty bad in some parts of England. Hope things dry up soon. Sitting by the fire today checking out your party. Thanks.

  7. We’ve been having non-stop weather advisories for snow and wind chill, but yes, as the above commentator said, I’d take that over flooding. I’m glad you’re staying dry on your hill! Thanks for hosting 🙂

    • Thank you, Danielle. I can just image how cold it is out there. We were in North America (NYC and Ontario, Canada) in January and man it was cold! It’s hard when it stays cold for so long too – I remember from when I was growing up in Canada! Thank you for visiting 🙂

  8. Wow! I’m glad your house is on a hill, too!
    Last weekend was the Pixie’s birthday… and we had a party for her using nothing but Real Food–including PINK frosting on her cupcakes! 🙂
    So I’m sharing exactly how we did that… plus an ice cream recipe!
    Stay dry!!!
    ~ Christine

    • Thank you, Christine! Wow, that is wonderful you managed to do all Real Food for a birthday party – that is a great accomplishment! I’ll look forward to reading your posts 🙂

  9. Hi April!

    Sorry I’ve been a bit quiet recently but I’ve changed my job and it’s taking more of my time!

    Today I brought along s dried fruit salad, something I adore in the morning.

    Have a lovely week xo

    • Hi Vicky, It’s lovely to ‘see’ you again! Your Dried Fruit Salad is the perfect breakfast for this time of year. I hope you are enjoying your new job and that you have a lovely week too 🙂 xo
