The Hearth and Soul Hop with The 21st Century Housewife: April 17


Welcome to the Hearth and Soul Hop, the blog hop where you can share and find inspiration for food from the hearth to feed your soul. We have some exciting news – from next week two new bloggers will be joining us as hosts! Please join us in welcoming Elsa of Elsa Cooks and Judy of Savoring Today.

Elsa is a wife, mommy, part-time worker/stay-at-home mama, and homeschooler. Other than her family, her passion in life is cooking, and recently, food photography. Her main blog, Elsa Cooks, focuses on cooking and baking from scratch. Her second blog, Elsa’s Baby Talk, focuses on family life. You can connect with  Elsa on FacebookTwitter, and Pinterest.

Judy is a writer and home cook with a passion for good food and healthy living. She believes great food goes beyond flavor or nourishment—it fosters relationship, beginning with her own family. She shares her love of food and prize-winning recipes through her blog, Savoring Today, as well as contributing to the Fresh Ink section of her local newspaper. You can connect with Judy onFacebookTwitter, and Pinterest.

A warm welcome to both Elsa and Judy!

We would also like to take this opportunity to restate the rules of the Hearth and Soul Hop, and we ask that you please read them carefully.

Recipes should include healthy ingredients and can be old or new recipes or posts. Articles on 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 are also welcome.

All the hosts at Hearth and Soul care very deeply about this blog hop, and make an group effort to be sure that every post is commented on. We also Pin and Tweet many of the entries. You don’t find this with every blog hop, and in exchange for our efforts, we respectfully request that you include a link in the actual blog post you are sharing back to one of the hosts, either by worded link or using our badge. It is not enough to link using a communal blog party page. People rarely click on these links and it is unlikely they will find the Hearth and Soul hop using these sort of pages.

Okay, let’s get on with this week’s Hearth and Soul Hop!

We share links to posts that have been shared with Hearth and Soul Hop at our Hearth and Soul Facebook Page, on our Pinterest Boards, and on Twitter.

Please share your recipes using the linky tools below. Please link a post that closely fits into the mission. Please include a link back to any of the host sites (through worded link or badge) actually in your individual post. If you link an archived post, please update it to include a link back to one of the Hearth and Soul hosts.

The Hearth and Soul Hop hosts include:

Alea of Premeditated Leftovers

Swathi of Zesty South Indian Kitchen

Penny of Penniless Parenting

and me, April of The 21st Century Housewife

The linky will stay open from 4:00 am Tuesday to 11:59 pm Thursday Eastern Standard Time.

Please share the Hearth and Soul Badge below to help promote the blog hop.
