    Happy FF Angie! Wait! I didn’t see any of these enteries at the link up :-/ How’s that possible! Oh God! Did I post / like / comment elsewhere πŸ™ I’m confused! Fab features as always! πŸ˜€ I shall check these out now! And… Don’t worry you will be cooking up a storm soon xxx

  2. I’m with you Angie. Where is my motivation! Thank goodness for FF. That is a great place to get motivation!

  3. I thought I was the only one – I really haven’t cooked that much lately. Partial laziness, partial burnout, partial life lol. I’ve been beating myself up over it but I do feel better now πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      I know that guilty feeling! But then again, I keep telling myself this is just for fun. We’re not in a race or competition. I constantly have to remind myself to take it easy πŸ™‚

  4. How can you fail to be inspired by all of the FF party goers week after week?? It’s the only place to be on a Friday πŸ™‚ have fun xx

  5. Yeah my wife employs a cook and a shopper also. (ME).:((
    Thanks for hosting Angie and Kaila @ GF Life 24/7 and welcome Jenny @ Dragonfly Home Recipes. Happy FF!
    (BTW am I scheduled to co-host in September? I know we talked about it but I can’t remember. Too much going on.)

    • Angie says:

      I need one more co-host next week, which is supposed to be Molly if she would agree, but I haven’t gotten any reply from her. If she can’t do it, I would love for you to co-host. Otherwise, I definitely can use your help in Oct.
      Your wife is very lucky!! πŸ™‚

  6. Thank you so much for featuring my cake! Have a great weekend πŸ™‚

  7. Jenny says:

    Thanks for inviting me to co-host–I am looking forward to it!!

    Hi Angie!! I haven’t been cooking much or been to the Fiesta the last few weeks! I was away on vacation in India eating all the food that I could get my hands on!! Now that I am back, I intend to get back into the kitchen slowly and also mingle a lot more here at FF. Love all the features this week!

    • Angie says:

      Oh how wonderful!! I’d love to find out about everything you did, eat, see while you were there. It’s one place I would love to visit! Welcome back!! πŸ™‚

  9. We’ve been doing quite a few grilling/easy meals too (as you can tell from what I’ve added this week) but I’m trying to still make some new things for when this little one eventually decides to show his face, since I know then I’ll definitely be doing less (but otherwise I doubt I’d be motivated at all either!). But hey, it’s been hot, that’s when you are supposed to grill!

    • Angie says:

      When are you due? So exciting!! There’s nothing quite like holding a newborn baby. And of course you should be doing less when he arrives. You’ll have your hands full by then! But the hubs should continue to keep the grill flaming and ready. I just told mine to get a new propane tank. We grill so much we’re out of fuel!

    I’ve been out of the kitchen for a while now too. There’s just something about that cooler weather that inspires cooking/baking. It’s so good to be back! πŸ™‚

  11. Thanks a bunch Effie and Angie for featuring my “spicy” crackers. They were a hit over the holiday weekend and yes, it is hard to eat just one, or two or a handful πŸ™‚

  12. Having the hubs grilling totally counts as cooking πŸ˜‰ Great features as always! Happy FF and have a wonderful weekend!

  13. I feel like I have missed out on soooo many amazing recipes!! These features are fantastic and so is everything else!! … maybe I should’t go on holiday… but glad to be back and Happy FF!!! xxx

  14. I spend so much of my time baking that by the time it comes to dinner I don’t want to cook anymore! I’ve taken to just throwing pre cooked grilled chicken on a salad and be done with it hahah

  15. Ginger says:

    We’ve just had an Indian takeaway … again! Perhaps it’s time to get back to do some real cooking! Anyways, thanks for letting me co-host last week, it was so much fun and I am feeling all fired up to do something with food this week!

    • Angie says:

      I’d be happy with Indian takeout anytime, Stef. Would you believe there’s no Indian restaurant anywhere in town? πŸ™ That’s probably why I’m obsessed with Indian food. I’m hoping to get fired up myself πŸ™‚

  16. that nutella cake wow but it looks like it needs a hazard warning lol!

  17. Arl's World says:

    Well I am glad to know I am not the only one who has not cooked much lately. I think fall will get us motivated Angie! All the wonderful spices and flavors …
    Of course, with your hubs cooking it might be slightly harder to motivate ones self. πŸ˜‰ Great features, I have missed out on some really good recipes! I will have fun catching up. Happy Fiesta Friday!! πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      I’m hoping the cooler weather will get us all motivated, Arlene. That and all the apples and pumpkins and Thanksgiving… I’m excited just thinking about it! πŸ™‚ Besides, the husband’s cooking repertoire is really very limited. All he does is grill steaks or burgers! πŸ™‚

  18. Jhuls says:

    Hi, Angie. I am on a short vacay and will be joining the fun as soon as I get back. Though, I will be visiting some when I have tthe chance. I am not also cooking that much. Is the weather? I don’t know. Maybe too exhausted to do so. So many things to think about. Anyway, happy Fiesta Friday to you and to everyone. πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      So nice of you to stop by while on vacay, Jhuls. I hope you’re having fun and will come back feeling refreshed and ready to partaayy!! πŸ™‚

      • Jhuls says:

        I stayed in a hotel with no wifi service inside the rooms. You have to pay about USD 7 for an hour wifi connection. :/ I have visited some blogs already. Will visit again soon. Hugs!

  19. You have me imagining what it would be like to have a cook! πŸ™‚
    I have been cooking less & posting less… trying to get back on track. Fiesta Friday is definitely a place to get inspired! πŸ™‚ Have a great weekend!

  20. Wow, some inspiring recipes this week, the chocolate cake is stunning. It’s turned autumnal here in France, so my slow cooker is in full use, cooking proper comfort food. Hope the weather cools down & you get cooking soon πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      Wonderful! Slow cooker cooking to the rescue! πŸ™‚ That’s probably how I should start easing my way back to the kitchen. Looking forward to check out your recipes, Sarah!

  21. Loretta says:

    In all honesty Angie, I’ll have to admit I agree with your sister. πŸ™‚ You the talented chef, you the creator of all things unique, you the excellent photographer and food stylist… I could go on and on, but you do get my drift don’t you? I do miss your cooking posts, but also realize how busy our lives are these days. I am very thankful though that you haven’t abandoned FF, it such a beautiful and welcoming arena where we can all share and encourage each other along the way. I myself will be MIA for a bit, visiting some southern states next week for 10 days, then next month will be away for 2 weeks visiting my mother and family across the pond. Keep up the great work though, I was rattling your cage in the first sentence πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      It’s true that in my family, I’m viewed as a bit of an artist, but I’m really not that talented! I’m just so-so, more of jack of all trades master of none. I can do many things well enough but not great. Oh well…as I get older I’ve come to accept the reality, hahah… So nice that you’re able to travel to all these places, Loretta. I’d love to trade places with you! πŸ™‚

  22. Thank you so much for featuring the crackers that I made!! Happy FF Angie! xoxo

  23. Kaila says:

    Angie! I’ve had so much fun co-hosting this week, and then I realized that I never wrote back to you!! I think it’s great to get as much out of your grill while the weather is still nice out, and you have all winter long to cook. Maybe we’ll be re-entering the kitchen around the same time. (I only have 2.5 more weeks in a sling!) Hope you have a wonderful week. πŸ˜€

    • Angie says:

      That’s not a problem, Kaila. As long as you have fun, that’s all that matters. I really hope the weather turns very soon. I have a couple of dessert recipes I’m itching to try but baking when it’s hot out is just not appealing to me. Don’t forget to send in your feature selections πŸ™‚

  24. tentimestea says:

    Oh yay, the feature is a lovely surprise! πŸ™‚ Ah, and one may as well take advantage of the barbecue while the weather is nice πŸ™‚ but I’m excited to see where the future cooler weather inspiration takes you!

Talk to me, people!
