The Hearth and Soul Hop Featuring Tasty Appetizers

hearth and soul button

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.

Not long ago I was in New York City with my family celebrating our son’s 21st birthday and enjoying Our Favourite New York City Restaurants – but absolutely freezing in temperatures well below zero. This week I’m in Israel experiencing sunshine and temperatures in the 70’s Fahrenheit (the 20’s Celsius). Quite a difference in the weather that is for sure! Once again I’m enjoying some great food, amazing sights and getting lots of inspiration for future blog posts. I’m so grateful for these experiences. I spent this morning in beautiful Jaffa, Gateway to the Ancient World.

Today I’m featuring tasty appetizers – perfect for Game Day!

Easy Nacho Dip

Layered Hot Pizza Dip

Hot Spicy Artichoke Dip

Seven Layer Dip

Whiskey and BBQ Meatballs

Bacon Bombs

Bacon Cheeseburger Bombs

Boiled Shrimp and Spicy Garlic Dipping Sauce

There’s lots of great inspiration for your Super Bowl party in these posts! Right, on with this week’s Hearth and Soul Hop –

  2. How exciting Israel after NY. Israel has always been a place I wanted to go to… I almost went when I was in Egypt…but that is long story. Glad you enjoyed the restaurants of NYC… so many good ones to choose from… is you come back for a blogging conference or a lady’s trip let me know I will bring you to a few hot spots.

  3. April, you do get around! My recipe for Coca can also be used as an appetizer when cut into smaller pieces. Thanks for hosting!

    • Your Coca looks beautiful, Mireya. I agree, they really would make great appetizers as well! Thank you for sharing this wholesome alternative to pizza with us at the Hearth and Soul hop 🙂

  4. Wow! How exciting! May I live vicariously through you? I’ve always wanted to go to Israel. I hope you share lots of pictures with us! Thank you for hosting the party, April!
