Welcome back to yet another edition of the Hearth and Soul blog hop. This is where you get the chance each week to share your favorite food related posts with the other visitors to the hop, and you get to check out theirs as well. The Hearth and Soul Hop is about food that not only nourishes our body, but also nourishes our souls.
As of this week, I am happy to announce that we have two new hosts for the blog hop, Elsa of Elsa Cooks, and Judy of Savoring Today. They're bloggers who you might be familiar with, as they're regular contributors to the blog hop, but here's some more about them for those of you who don't already know them:
Elsa is a wife, mommy, part-time worker/stay-at-home mama, and homeschooler. Other than her family, her passion in life is cooking, and recently, food photography. Her main blog, Elsa Cooks, focuses on cooking and baking from scratch. Her second blog, Elsa’s Baby Talk, focuses on family life. You can connect with Elsa on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
Judy is a writer and home cook with a passion for good food and healthy living. She believes great food goes beyond flavor or
nourishment—it fosters relationship, beginning with her own family. She shares her love of food and prize-winning recipes through her blog, Savoring Today, as well as contributing to the Fresh Ink section of her local newspaper. You can connect with Judy on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
Here's a recap of some of the rules for participating:
Recipes should include healthy ingredients and can be old or new recipes or posts. Articles on real food, slow food, foraging, herbal remedies, local food, sustainable food, organics, gardening or any healthy eating information written in a positive and loving light are also welcome.
As much as many of us are interested in frugality and green/natural living, this is a food blog hop; there are many other blog hops where you can share those posts of yours. Please keep your non food related blog posts off the hop.
All the hosts at Hearth and Soul care very deeply about this blog hop, and make an group effort to be sure that every post is commented on. We also Pin and Tweet many of the entries. You don’t find this with every blog hop, and in exchange for our efforts, we respectfully request that you include a link in the actual blog post you are sharing back to one of the hosts, either by worded link or using our badge. It is not enough to link using a communal blog party page. People rarely click on these links and it is unlikely they will find the Hearth and Soul hop using these sort of pages.
Please include a link back to one/any of the host sites (through worded link or badge). The Hearth and Soul Hosts include:
April of The 21st Century Housewife
Swathi of Zesty South Indian Kitchen
Alea of Premeditated Leftovers
Elsa of Elsa Cooks
Judy of Savoring Today
and me, Penny of Penniless Parenting.
Linky will stay open from 1:00 am Tuesday to 11:59 pm Thursday (Eastern time).
You can find the Hearth and Soul Hosts sharing links to entries on the Hearth and Soul Hop Facebook Page, Pinterest Boards, and on Twitter at @HearthNSoulHop through out the week.
