Hearth and Soul Hop

Hearth & Soul Hop

Welcome to another Hearth and Soul Hop, the food carnival for and about food that not only nourishes our bodies, but our souls!

Penny from Penniless Parenting has made the decision to step down as a co-host of the Hearth and Soul Hop. She says, “I really loved being the host of the Hearth and Soul blog hop, and every week had a great time reading the new submissions, getting inspired by all the wonderful, healthy, and creative recipes that showed up. Fortunately and unfortunately, lately I’ve been very busy- I do a lot of foraging, lead foraging walks in the nearby community, sell gluten free flours, have a writing job, am in the middle of writing a book on foraging, in addition to homeschooling my three kids and making everything we eat from scratch. I’ve been tumbling into bed at 2 am most nights, realizing that I just didn’t manage to make it to even most things on my too long “to do” list, and have been trying to shorten my list of responsibilities so that I can get some free time. It’s not working so much, and I’ve been struggling to find enough time to relax for even a minute or two… Because of that, because of all my other responsibilities, I’m going to need to take a break from hosting the Hearth and Soul blog hop. Perhaps at some point in the future, if things calm down a bit more around here, I might be able to resume as a hostess. But in the meantime, its been a great fun, but it’s time to say adios.”

My fellow co-hosts and I want to thank Elsa for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Hop. We will miss her as a co-host, but we are glad that she will be continuing to share her delicious recipes with us as a participant here at the Hearth and Soul Hop.

    Hi Alea,
    Thank you so much for featuring my Provence Chicken…definitely one of my simplest recipes. I brought Moroccan Stuffed Peppers today. I am very excited about this recipe. They are truly the best stuffed peppers I ever ate. Happy Valentines Day

    Thanks for highlighting my tortilla soup Alea! It’s on our menu next week again – can’t wait!

    This week I shared two posts: one is written by my husband and offers his experience from recent 10 day water fast, and the other is my own 5 day smoothie fast experience. The great benefits and 10 smoothie recipes are included!
