Welcome to The Hearth and Soul Hop Link Party! I can’t believe it is May already! The Hearth and Soul Hop is the link party for all things home and family – family and comfort food recipes, healthy and sustainable living posts, homemaking, gardening, kids, crafts and DIY. We love thought provoking, encouraging and inspiring posts too.
It’s been a very exciting weekend here! I enjoyed celebrating the first birthday of one of my youngest cousins with family. It was especially nice to catch up with two of my cousins who are visiting from Canada. And then there was the Royal Baby!
Thank you so much to everyone who visited and shared posts with us at the Hearth and Soul Hop Link Party last week. Today I’m featuring
How to Feel More Calm with Breathing Exercises from RCH Reviews
and Lemon Pudding Cake from Hadia’s Lebanese Cuisine
Hadia’s recipe is a wonderful demonstration of how our family food histories and cultures can often unite us in fascinating ways. I often make my Grandmother’s recipe for ‘Lemon Sponge’ in a large casserole. The recipe is very similar to Hadia’s mom’s recipe. I know the recipe dates back at least to 1920 as I have a newspaper clipping with the recipe from the Toronto Star plus copy of the recipe in my Grandma’s handwriting. I hope to find out how far back it actually dates and where it originated. I love it that our families have been making similar recipes and enjoying them in different countries over the years!
Okay, I would love to see what you have to share this week!
The Hearth and Soul Hop Linky party is co-hosted by me, April of AprilJHarris.com and Swathi of Zesty South Indian Kitchen.
