What’s Been Happening
I have been making all sorts of plans for the months to come, and I’m looking forward to sharing some news with you as the year evolves! In the meantime, I’ve been busy with online speaking engagements, networking at online meetings with my WIBN and Athena Groups, creating content and spending time in the kitchen cooking and baking up a storm.
I always look forward to Valentine’s Day, but I’m more excited than ever about it this year. I love celebrating minor holidays to help brighten the days of lockdown.
I’ve also been sharing lots of seasonal recipes using blood oranges. Of course, if blood oranges are not available, all these recipes can be made with ordinary oranges as well.The colour of the finished recipe may vary a little as blood oranges are pink or red, but the flavour is very similar.
I recently updated my Chocolate Orange Marble Cake Recipe with new photographs. There are step by step instructions to make the marbling easy too. If you love blood oranges as much as I do, you can find lots of Blood Orange Recipes here on the blog.
I also shared a healthy fish recipe that could definitely work for a special Valentine’s Day dinner.
My Baked Cod with a Sautéed Vegetable Topping is perfect for everyday, but it’s easy to dress it up for celebrations too. Served with rice or a grain free side, it’s gluten free too. If cod isn’t available you can use any firm white fish for this recipe too.
Coming next week – a brand new pancake recipe that could revolutionise Shrove Tuesday/Pancake Day (16th February this year) and brunch for months to come!
Thank you all for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Community and for sharing your wonderful content.
