The Hearth and Soul Hop with The 21st Century Housewife


Welcome to another Hearth and Soul Hop, the blog carnival for and about food that nourishes both body and soul.

I wanted to let you know that next week we will start opening the Hearth and Soul Hop a little later. The Hearth and Soul hop is a truly international hop, and I feel really blessed to be able to co-host with wonderful bloggers in many different time zones. We also have contributors to our Hop from all around the world. Because of this we decided that beginning next week we will open the Hop on Tuesday at 4:00 a.m. EST (That will be 1:00 am PST or 8:00 am GMT) to make it easier for some of our co-hosts who are either asleep when the hop goes live or are trying to settle their children in bed in the evening.

My highlights from visits to Hearth and Soul contributors last week include:

Maple Roasted Banana Nut Muffins

Cod with Roasted Tomato Salsa

Brown Sugar Apple Bread

Grandmama’s Potica Bread

Today I am sharing my Beef and Shallot Bourguignon, a family favourite that is also perfect for entertaining.

On with the hop! If you are new, please read the Hearth and Soul Hop mission statement which includes the rules for linking up. As always, if you have any questions please email me at
