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.
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.
My favorite submissions from last week:
Yogurt Fruit Popsicles- I have totally been inspired by this to make some dairy free pudding fruit pops! If you make these with homemade yogurt, it'll be even cheaper.
Cheapo Veggie Stock- I think most very frugal people know the trick about making stock out of veggie scraps, but its always worthwhile to share the idea again.
Gluten Free Vegan Sourdough Bread- While this recipe uses some ingredients I won't/can't use, I definitely want to try a variation of this recipe using the techniques mentioned here.
Bean Soup- What I especially love about this healthy and easy bean soup is that a 5 year old came up with the recipe!
Homemade Coconut Butter- Did you know you can make your own coconut butter? And no, its not the same as coconut oil. Unfortunately my mini food processor isn't strong enough to do this, but I thought everyone should have this recipe!
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.
