Welcome to the Hearth and Soul Link Party! Being open to possibility has never been more important. This is especially true now, when it feels like things are constantly changing all around us. However, sometimes if we look at them a different way, changes – and even challenges – can become opportunities.
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.
These are still challenging times, that is for sure, but every day I feel we are a step closer to things getting better. If you are in a place where this is not yet the case, please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you as we all navigate the challenges of the pandemic. Here’s to better days ahead!
What’s Been Happening?
It has been another busy week here. I am working on some exciting new developments – including big plans for more online cook-a-longs and cooking classes! I can’t wait to share more with you. Please watch this space!
On Tuesday I did an online talk to a networking group for female entrepreneurs about The Pros and Cons of Blogging For Your Business. I also had another online networking meeting on Wednesday.
After 3 long lockdowns, I was absolutely thrilled to be able to get my hair done on Thursday. My husband had over 3 inches cut off his hair! It was also lovely to be able to have a pedicure and get my eyebrows done.
On the blog, I featured one of my favourite cake recipes.
This Old Fashioned Banana Cake recipe is easy to make, a cinch to decorate and it tastes amazing.
I also featured one of my favourite spring brunch recipes.
My Baked Overnight Oatmeal with Rhubarb and Almonds is an easy, make ahead recipe the whole family – often even those who don’t like porridge – will love!
Open to Possibility Featured Posts
The Hearth and Soul Link Party always has ideas and inspiration to help you be open to possibility, expand your horizons and experience. This week’s featured posts include (from top left, clockwise):-
Spring holds so much possibility and I’m feeling really inspired by Penny’s Snowball Lemon Spring Wreath. Love the beautiful decor at Penny’s Vintage Home!
This DIY Farmhouse Inspired Herb Box from Niky at The House on Silverado is perfect for indoor or outdoor herb growing, opening you up to lots of culinary possibilities!
Ever thought about learning to crochet, or picking up your crochet hook if you haven’t used it for some time? Alexandra of Eye Love Knots has a free pattern – How to Crochet a C2C Window Pane Throw Pillow which can also be used to make a blanket.
Leslie of My Gluten Free Cucina shared a recipe to keep you open to possibility in the kitchen. Her deliciously easy but very appealing Hasselback Chicken Breast will breathe new life into your chicken recipe repertoire.
