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:
A little something about beans- Whether you use beans in your kitchen, don't use beans, or are considering using beans, this post is worth a read.
Allergy Friendly Travel Foods- Yes, I know I just made an overnight trip with the kids last week, but next week the whole family is going on vacation. These are some great ideas of what to take along.
Identifying Edible Garden Weeds- I love to forage wild edibles, and go around the neighborhood collecting the plants that grow all over, then cook them up for my family. Some people don't have the energy to travel to forage, but this post tells you about weeds that are likely to be growing in your garden that are edible.
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.
