Fiesta Friday #80
Update: Since we’ll be voting for features and voting can only begin once link-up is closed, this link-up will close a little early, 8am on Tuesday instead of the usual 8pm. The extra time will give us a chance to vote before the next fiesta starts.
Please come back on Tuesday and vote for your favorite links. You can vote for up to 5 links. The top 4 links with the most votes will be featured next week.
I’m leaving on a jet plane…
Don’t know when I’ll be back again…
Actually, I’m not leaving on a jet plane…
And definitely I’ll be back when the next fiesta starts…
I’m just going to drive up north…
To look for some cooler weather…
I’m melting down here…
It’s hot, hot, hot!!
And as you know, I’ve been entertaining guests in my house this week. And clearly, I’m having way too much fun! I actually forgot Friday comes once a week and today!
Consequently, I don’t even have any co-host for you! Oops!
But here’s a chance to try that voting system once again. Remember we did that once and it was kind of fun?
You all get to decide which links will be featured next week. Which means you are all co-hosts of the party. Yay!!
So, be good, people! Visit each other… Talk to one another… Have fun, y’know! It’s a party!
I’ll try to pop in as much as I can, okay?
Now, take a look at these! And then, drool! And then, run over to get the recipes!
“Not just one, but two Yafawi Sfeeha came to the fiesta last week. And might as well, since one is probably not enough. They both look incredible! This is the first time I’ve heard of these buns and already I’m in love. I guess you can say it was love at first sight. Can you blame me? Just look at them!” — Angie
“Number 1, I LOVE Middle Eastern food. Number 2, I LOVE meat pies, of just about any kind. Number 3, I LOVE Julie. All of the above are reasons why this was one of my favorites from FF this week.” — Jess
“How dainty and beautiful are these lemon ricotta stuffed zucchini flowers! James has contributed a great post on how and why one should indulge in these beautiful flowers. Now I must admit, I have never tried them before, but have seen recipes, none of which come close to the delicate nature and taste of this recipe. I love the idea of lemon and ricotta, and wait for it….. beer, Stella Artois to be precise! How could you go wrong? Can’t wait to try these pronto!” — Loretta
“Now I know why I can’t kick zucchini off my growing list! Every year I threaten, and yet every year I plant them. ‘Coz when you get tired of the fruit, you can move on to the flowers, and make these! Or maybe we should just move on to the flowers, period!” — Angie
“Try saying this out loud three times fast. I BET you will get tongue-tied. I BET YOU. Lol But aside from that, I just couldn’t believe how awesome these scones looked. Nancy really did a great job, AND, we both used toffee in our baked good recipes this week, which I thought was a very happy coincidence.” — Jess
“This is one of the best scone recipes ever! Okay, maybe the BEST ever! They really sound and look so yum!! I am making these. Uhm… as soon as I can get to an oven.” — Angie
“When I read “crispy mint-flavored pastry cases, filled with tart home-made raspberry jam” I was anxious to read the full recipe. Can you imagine taking a bite out of these beauties? It is sure to take your taste buds to another level. I love how KitchenSpells incorporated mint in her pastry. What a clever idea, who would have thought of mint and raspberry jam? But it clearly makes sense, what a brilliant flavor combination. I also love the wee heart-shaped pastry that she’s topped the tarts with, definitely a winner in my books! These will be bookmarked and made for the next cocktail party.” — Loretta
