The New Year Edition of The Hearth and Soul Hop

hearth and soul button
Welcome to the New Year’s Edition of the Hearth and Soul Hop! Hearth and Soul is a 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.

We are getting ready for a family trip to New York City on New Year’s Day to celebrate our son’s 21st birthday so we’ll be having a quiet New Year’s Eve at home with our son and his girlfriend before we all fly out to the Big Apple in the morning. I’ve been using up  the leftovers from Christmas in my favourite  Deliciously Easy Leftovers Dish and also in Mincemeat Bread and Butter Pudding as well as putting away the Christmas decorations and packing.

This week I’m featuring Joy of Yesterfood’s version of Mamie Eisenhower’s Fudge.

I love recipes with a great story behind them like this one and oh my goodness does Mrs Eisenhower’s fudge sound delicious!

Before we get started I want to wish everyone a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous 2014!
