Thanksgiving at The Hearth and Soul Link Party

The Hearth and Soul Link Party where we welcome posts about anything that feeds your soul
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who is celebrating later this week! Welcome, everyone, to the Hearth and Soul Link Party!

Please share your posts about anything that feeds your soul – family, home, recipes, decorating, crafts, DIY, travel, organisation, book reviews, the arts, self improvement and more.Β 

I’ve just returned home from California and already my kitchen is smelling like the holidays. I wanted to get some baking in today as my kitchen is being redecorated from tomorrow until the end of the week.

Meanwhile, I’ve got the perfect Thanksgiving breakfast to share with you!

My warmly spiced Gluten Free Cranberry Orange Baked Oatmeal makes the perfect healthier holiday breakfast.

This warmly spiced Gluten Free Cranberry Orange and Ginger Baked Oatmeal has all the flavours of the holidays. It tastes like it should be bad for you, but with lots of wholesome ingredients and no refined sugars, it’s actually a very healthy breakfast!

If you are entertaining guests for more than just Thanksgiving Day, you will love this quick and easy recipe.

My Quick and Easy Coq au Vin recipe gives you all the flavour of a slow-cooked Coq au Vin in a fraction of the time with much less effort

My Quick and Easy Coq au Vin is a streamlined version of a French classic, perfect for entertaining guests in the days before Thanksgiving.

And finally, if you are the one travelling for the holidays, you may enjoy my Top 5 Air Travel Tips and my tried and tested Tips to Avoid Jet Lag. Both posts can help make travel a lot less stressful and a lot more enjoyable!

    • Welcome back, Nancy! It’s lovely to ‘see’ you here at The Hearth and Soul Link Party! I hope you enjoy the oatmeal when you try it. It’s one of my favourite breakfasts at the moment!

  5. April,
    Thanks for another great Hearth and Soul party. Still loving your cranberry oatmeal bake! Have a great Thanksgiving

  6. April, welcome home! (Are we going to be hearing about where all you went?) I’ve linked my turkey type post again and will come back on Thursday to link to the English dessert I’ll be posting.

    • Thank you so much, Jean! I’m hoping to share more of our travels soon. I’m all about turkey this time of year both for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Even though the UK doesn’t have Thanksgiving, we are having Thanksgiving dinner with our friends and neighbours. My lovely friends host every year. I look forward to your dessert recipe! Wishing you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving!

  7. Thanks so much for the feature, April! I sure would like to try all those pumpkin pies. πŸ™‚ Plus, I’ll be checking out your Coq Au Vin and I’ll definitely be making the Easy Homemade Christmas Irish Cream recipe that was linked up this week. Holy!

    I know that folks in the UK don’t celebrate Thanksgiving but I hope by relating to your American readers that you have some special food and a relaxing Thursday. πŸ˜‰


    • It’s a pleasure, Shirley πŸ™‚ Thank you for your lovely wishes. I do wish we had Thanksgiving in the UK. We could definitely use a corporate holiday celebrating gratitude here! I’m lucky I don’t miss out though as we have our Canadian Thanksgiving in October and we have lovely friends a couple of doors up who host a Thanksgiving dinner on the US Thanksgiving weekend in November every year πŸ™‚ Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

  8. I love your profile picture, April! You’re gorgeous. And of course, the food is always excellent! Thanks for hosting!
