Welcome to The Hearth and Soul Hop, a blog hop for recipes using healthy ingredients, family and comfort food recipes, articles about healthy living, real, local and sustainable food, foraging, herbal remedies, organics and gardening. As much as possible, recipes should be homemade from scratch.
It’s been a very eventful week and I apologise for the lack of posts shared! For the first time in all my years of travelling I was mugged by thieves on a scooter (mini motorbike) in Amsterdam. They bumped me with the scooter and got hold of my handbag, wrenching it from my grasp as they sped away. Apparently they also steal headphones in a similar way, pulling them off people’s heads as they drive past. This sounds much more painful than what I experienced! My reason for sharing is to encourage dialogue. I’m told by the police that this is a relatively new modus operandi but it is becoming absolutely rampant in Europe. The more people know about it, the less thieves will be successful.
I’m so grateful to everyone who has supported and encouraged me over the last few days. I really have been blessed by so much kindness.
But back to the Hop! It’s always hard to choose features from the wonderful posts that are shared. This week I was seduced by three cakes – one nutty and two fruity!
Walnut Coffee Cake from Chaya at Bizzy Bakes
Pflaumenkuchen from Joanne at What’s on the List
Strawberry Rhubarb Upside Down Cake from Pure Grace Farms
