Whether your blog posts are old or new, as long as they are about things that feed the soul, they are welcome here at The Hearth and Soul Link Party. 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.
March adventures can happen at home or away. With a bit of thought, it’s easy to change everyday things into adventures of their own. Whether it’s visiting a new to you place, or looking at the area you live in in a new way, there’s scope for adventure everywhere – especially this time of year with the fresh start spring will bring.
We’ve definitely been having some weather adventures here in the UK, after 3 major named storms in 3 weeks. Storms Ciara, Dennis and Jorge have made for some very lush grass and beautiful spring flowers, but I feel so sorry for the people in other areas who have experienced severe flooding and damage. I’m incredibly grateful to live on high ground.
What’s New On The Blog
It’s blood orange season and I’ve got some delicious recipes to help you make the most of it.
There are a number of recipes using blood oranges here on the blog. This is one of my favourites. Moist, delicious and full of citrus flavour, my Blood Orange Pound Cake recipe makes 2 cakes – one to enjoy and one to share as a foodie gift. It freezes well too.
There’s definitely a bit of a citrus theme going on this week.
If you love lemon you will love these Lemon Almond Streusel Bars. With sweet lemon curd and a hint of almond, they are perfect for afternoon tea, snacks and dessert.
I’ve had some wonderful adventures in Venice over the years.
A virtual March adventure in Venice might be a safer option at the moment. If you’d care to join me, I’ve got lots of posts about Venice to share. Sadly may be a bit too early to actually book your next adventure abroad, but it’s never too early to plan it with some armchair travelling. I’m praying for those affected by COVID-19 all over the world.
I’m grateful to you all for visiting and for sharing your wonderful content.

Enjoy a foodie adventure with Judee of Gluten Free A – Z. Judee is not sure if the origins of her family recipe for Roasted Eggplant Soup are Lebanese or Persian, but the flavours sound amazing. This warmly seasoned soup is real comfort food, for March adventures in flavour!
