Today more than ever, it’s important to see home as a haven. There’s lots of inspiration here at the Hearth and Soul Link party to help you make that happen. Welcome!
The Hearth and Soul Link Party welcomes blog posts about anything that feeds the soul. Things that feed the soul may include (but are not limited to) recipes, decorating, crafts, family, home, DIY, organization, travel, book reviews, the arts and self improvement.
What Has Been Happening?
How are you all doing? It has been a busy week here.
We were all deeply saddened by the death of HRH The Prince Philip at Windsor Castle on Friday. He was a true patriarch and my heart goes out to the Royal Family and especially HM The Queen. Their marriage is a true example of sticking together through thick and thin and I have always looked up to them both.
On a happier note, I was delighted to see some of you at the Afternoon Tea Class I taught with my friend Jen of Fearless in the Kitchen Cooking School on Friday.
It was a really fun class, and it was great to see the photos of the delicious bakes that were posted on social media after the class as well. We made traditional Cucumber Sandwiches, British Scones, my Coffee and Walnut Loaf Cake and Melting Moments Cookies, all the ingredients you need for a traditional British Afternoon Tea. If you would be interested in our next class, please do get in touch and I will put you on the waiting list.
On The Blog
If you are looking for Vegetarian meal inspiration, my Provençal Vegetable Gratin makes a delicious main course or side dish. With a few minor modifications, the recipe can be suitable for vegans as well.
Looking for a lower sugar, healthier bread suitable for breakfast or afternoon tea?
Don’t miss this easy recipe for Old Fashioned Banana Nut Bread. Low in sugar and enriched with the goodness of bran, it is an easy, wholesome quick bread recipe that tastes great.
I’m really getting excited about Spring! Last week I shared my favourite beauty products to help you make the most of the beautiful person that you are at this gorgeous time of year.

There’s nothing that makes me see my home as a haven more as the idea of cosying up inside with a good book. Julie of Julie’s Creative Lifestyle shared a recommendation for a great read and a fun quiz to help you find your reading personality in her post Books – This or That.
