The Hearth and Soul Hop


A warm welcome to The Hearth and Soul Hop, the blog hop for recipes that share food from the hearth to feed your soul, as well as articles about healthy living, real food, slow food, foraging, herbal remedies, local food, sustainable food, organics, gardening or any healthy eating information written in a positive and loving light.

I really enjoyed visiting so many of the posts that were shared last week. My highlights from visitors to hop contributors include:

Roasted Duck Breast with Orange-Ginger Dipping Sauce from Real Food Forager


Creamy Vanilla Nut Brown Sugar Ice Cream from The Aliso Kitchen
