Welcome to the Hearth & Soul Link Party! Halloween is fast approaching so this week the features are chosen to give you a little inspiration. It’s Canadian Thanksgiving Sunday and Monday, so I’m publishing a bit early to allow me time to celebrate our Canadian Thanksgiving in England with family and friends.
At the Hearth and Soul Link Party, you can share blog posts old and new, about anything that feeds the soul. This includes – but is not limited to – family, home, recipes, decorating, crafts, DIY, travel, organisation, book reviews, the arts and self improvement.
Last Week on the Blog
I’ve been doing a lot of work behind the scenes, getting ready for the months ahead. There’s a big photo shoot in the works, as well as lots of delicious home cooking, travel and style to share. I’m also working on improving my newsletters. I’ve been a bit sporadic with my updates lately… Plus, I’ve got a blogiversary coming up!
I’m especially excited to share this brand new recipe with you.
Based on a vintage family recipe that is still one of the most popular posts on the blog, my Gluten Free Old Fashioned Spice Cake recipe has a warming, mellow flavour the whole family will love. Delicious any time of year, it really comes into its own for autumn entertaining, and makes an easy gluten free dessert for Halloween and Thanksgiving.
If you haven’t tried my Warm Wild Rice Salad with Sausages and Apples yet, you are missing out! It’s an easy weeknight supper that’s also perfect for entertaining. There are gluten free and vegetarian options for this warming fall recipe as well.
Thank you to you all for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Community, and for sharing your wonderful content!
