    Bland or not, everybody’s gonna parteeeeey!!! 😀 Hope you get better soon, Angie. Hugs! Happy FF and thankful as always for the wonderful party.

    • Angie says:

      Thank you, Jhuls! I need to see a doctor! I hate being sick! I’m glad you are excited to partaaay!!! Happy FF to you, too! I’m blowing you kisses from far. Don’t want you to catch my cold! XOXO

  2. Oh no, hope you get better soon! And if I can help in any way with the site etc then let me know. Even without any decoration, it’s still a great place to party 🙂

    • Angie says:

      I’m looking for a good, clean recipe plugin and a pinterest plugin that works! I also have problems with pages. They’re not showing up! Hence, no about page or FF guidelines page.

      • Hmm, well I use Easyrecipe plugin, that I know is fairly popular but don’t know about others really. I think simple social icons is one of the easier/more common sharing plugins but again there are lots of others ones. You can always try one, then if you don’t like it disable it. Weird about pages…I only really know how to do it within my set up that I think is different so not sure I can help. Sorry, not sure why I offered I have clearly been useless. Maybe I’ll have to try smoe of those yummy dishes instead 🙂

  3. It’s okay that it’s bland, more room to make a mess haha! If you need help with anything just shout 🙂 I say that like I have any clue what I’m doing when it comes to html and websites but I can try haha!
    Lovely features this week, I NEED to try that mango tres leches cake!

    • Angie says:

      I was reading about child menu since I was trying to get more options for my theme and my head was spinning! No wonder I dropped my computer class in college! 😀

  4. Wow, guys, thank you so much! I’m a little flabbergasted and so completely honored that you highlighted my little potstickers! (And that you didn’t think they were completely “insane” – in the bad “insane” way!!) Happy FF, all! 🙂

  5. I’m sorry to hear that you don’t feel ok, but… I’m more sorry to hear that you have to deal with plugins, css… I found Youtube very very useful! We will take care of your party Angie, no worries!

    • Angie says:

      Thanks, Margy! I’m new at this self-hosting animal 😀 I wasn’t very good at technical stuff to begin with. I have no business getting a self-hosted site!

      • I have some files that explains things, but they are in Italian…. in case you won’t find anything I can trey to forward them to you!

        • Angie says:

          Ok, thanks for the offer. I really haven’t spent much time on the site. I need to read carefully. But I might just call on you! Thanks so much, Margy! XOXO

        • Angie says:

          I haven’t spent much time studying the new blog. I just need to read carefully, I think. But I might just call on you and take up the offer, Margy. Thanks so much! XOXO

  6. varinaj says:

    oh goodness, get you stat to the doctor and clear that sinus up – those are the WORST.

  7. Stephanie @ The Cozy Cook says:

    Ang!!!! First, feel better. Second, don’t worry about the bland. It’s SOOO not easy for anyone to figure out how to get stuff to work and show up and whatnot…..I struggle with it all the time. I’ve probably tried 76 Pinterest Plugins… twice. I’m STILL messing around with it! (Seriously, probably for an hour yesterday and I like everything finally, but the button is too small!) Anyway, every day it gets easier, no rush, we’re here, we’re partying! I can’t knock over and break anything at least right?!? There’s a little echo when I talk/shout… but that’s no big deal! 😉 Happy Friday!!

    • Angie says:

      Thanks, Stephanie! I just tried 3 different Pinterest plugins and none worked. So frustrating! I think it could be my theme. Not sure. Anyway, I’m enjoying a mini Spring break, so I’m just going to take it easy. FF pretty much takes care of itself with participants like you in it! XOXO

  8. Hope you feel better soon!

  9. Hey, it all looks amazing, there’s so much colour from all of the dishes, no pimping required! I hope you feel better soon x x x

    • Angie says:

      😀 So glad to hear, Elaine! I’m not so good at pimping anything. I think I am feeling better, thanks!

      • Are you kidding me?? You’re ‘so not good at pimping anything’?? You take the most stunning photos or beautifully created dishes! That crudite bouquet? That rainbow pizza? If that’s not pimping what is?? 😉

  10. Thank u so much Angie and the people who are part of the Fiesta Friday for this feature ! I am so honoured 🙂 This Mango Coconut Tres Leches Cake was my first attempt at Tres Leches and though i was pretty skeptical about trying this spin, i am so happy i did go for it and got it here on the FF table ! Thank u so much again for the feature:)

    • Angie says:

      You’re welcome, Prachi! I absolutely love that cake! I’ve had tres leches cake many times, but never with mango and coconut. It sounds so amazing!

  11. I hope you get well soon! Can’t wait for the gaudy neon explosion! Lol

  12. thebrookcook says:

    I love the new party site! Truly spectacular posts from last week as well- mouthwatering! Happy FF! 🙂

  13. coconutcraze says:

    This is a great job you are doing. Everything will fall in place at the right time. Get well soon, Angie. I feel so happy to be in this party. Let me link my tart too!

  14. Lili says:

    Hi Angie! Hope you feel better soon! Just wanted to say to you, your co-hosts and everyone at Fiesta Friday thank you so much for the feature and all the positve comments!!! 🙂 I must confess I jumped around the flat a lot when I saw I’d been honoured at FF, with little yips and woohoos, but without the cheerleader pompons! 🙂 Also will be very excited if people do decide to make the macarons, with either the Italian meringue method (yes, safer!) or French one. Let me know how it goes anyone who does – you can do it!!! 🙂

    • Angie says:

      That’s so great to hear we made you happy, Lili! And I promise I’ll give macarons another chance. My kids will be very happy. They sometimes talk about the first time they had macarons in Paris 🙂

      • Lili says:

        I’ve heard other people reminisce about their first macarons in Paris! Sweet. I’m sure your kids will enjoy yours Angie! Good to hear you’re getting better and thanks for hosting the party!

  15. A Home Cook says:

    I’m impressed. Writing when you’re not feeling good is a big achievement. And writing in grammatical English is even harder!

    • Angie says:

      Thank you so much! I’m somewhat humbled by the compliment. I tend to write the way I talk on my blog, informally. It was hard to do at first (in my former life, my job was to write press releases, etc.) but it’s getting easier 🙂

      • A Home Cook says:

        Shifting from media-style writing (or any other structured genre) to something less formal can be tricky. It explains why your stuff is always fun to read, though.

  16. Thanks for the party. I have my first post link on this party of “Cauliflower,carrot and turnip pickle”.

    • Angie says:

      Welcome, Sadhna! Please mix and mingle! Visit the other links and engage in conversations. We’re a friendly bunch! 😀

  17. Sitting here at the end of the day, wishing I had read your post earlier ,instead of after the “freezer” supper!

    • Angie says:

      It all depends on the freezer supper. I had a decent one not too long ago. Marie Callender’s. It really was pretty good! Or I was just hungry 😀

  18. elamb says:

    Oh wow, thanks so much for featuring my pomelo noodle salad! You need to get better quick, Miss Angie, so you can teach us all how to choose perfect pomelos – I think I squeezed about 12 of them before randomly choosing one! Love the new party hangout!

    • Angie says:

      You’re welcome, E! And yes, apparently there is a secret to choosing pomelos. I will tell you soon enough! 😀

  19. Sonal Kalra says:

    Aww c’on! Don’t be harsh on yourself! When the room is full of people eating, drinking and having fun- who has the time to notice! Feel better soon xoxox and better late than never – Congratulations Angie! Now we can party as long as we want! Much Love xxx

  20. Sue says:

    New to the roundup and it all looks lovely

  21. Jing says:

    I missed one party and here’s a new site already! Hope you get better soon, Angie! As for HTML and CSS, you can try this free course here: and more!/web-development 🙂

  22. Loretta says:

    So sorry to hear Angie, sinus infections are terrible aren’t they? I hope by now you are on the mend. It looks like your new digs has everyone happy and mingling pretty well. Don’t worry about the bells and whistles, you are doing an amazing job, you’re like the Pied Piper, everyone follows you no matter where you go :)). Bravo!!

    • Angie says:

      Yup, I’m already feeling better after a day of antibiotics, thanks! Unfortunately I think my kids and hubby are now starting to feel sick. Oh dear! Thanks for being so supportive, Loretta. I always can count on you. XOXO

  23. milkandbun says:

    Hope you get better soon, Angie! And I think no matter how looks FF site, people want to party! I love FF! 🙂 Hugs

  24. How odd I could have sworn I commented before. The sea air on holiday must be getting to me . I hope you feel better soon sweetie xxx

  25. viaja2 says:

    Espero que esté mejorando, la sinusitis es bastante dolorosa y molesta.
    El sitio nuevo está mejorando mucho, debes de estar haciendo un gran esfuerzo y muchos cursos. Espero que cuando seas una especialista en Pluggins y cosas de esas que no tengo ni idea de qué son, me las cuentes y consiga arreglar el paso a mi nuevo blog, que aún está a medias.
    Un abrazo.

    • Angie says:

      Me siento mejor, gracias! Tuve tiempo para aprender más acerca de plugins, pero todavía tengo un largo camino por recorrer. Gracias por notar las pequeñas mejoras. Por supuesto compartiré con ustedes algo que aprender. Házmelo saber lo que necesita ayuda. XOXO

      • viaja2 says:

        Cuánto me alegro de que estés aprendiendo mucha informática, ya iré preguntándote dudas, pero cuando estés ya trasladada del todo al nuevo blog.
        Un abrazo.

  26. Sandhya says:

    Hope you feel better soon, Angie! Congratulations on the new party place!
