I’m having a fantastic time in Canada catching up with family and friends. We had a wonderful weekend in Sarnia, and are now back in my home town on our way to Toronto to see yet more lovely people! On Friday we fly to Los Angeles, and are looking forward to chilling out at a house we have rented in Beverly Hills for a few days, as well as doing some sightseeing. Then it’s on to San Diego and BlogHer ’11!
All this visiting and catching up, much of which has centred round celebration and food, has reminded me how important food is to us – not just in terms of survival, but also in terms of memory, connection and yes, even love. And that is what the Hearth and Soul Blog Hop is all about. Food from the hearth, to feed your soul – the food of memory, the food of hope, the food of comfort and of joy.

It was such a pleasure visiting the links last week, and reading about other people’s special recipes and experiences round food. I enjoyed all the posts I visited, and highlights include:
Soda Biscuits from Miriam at The Pioneer Cookbook.
Gluten Free Strawberry Shortcake from Common Sense Homesteading
and Mango Banana Pistachio Cake from Swathi’s Zesty South Indian Kitchen
