    Wow! Congratulations on the almost 2 years! I love Fiesta Friday–the recipes and the people involved! Cheers to more years for FF (advanced greeting hihi).

  2. Thanks for the featureand for hosting Angie and also to your lovely co-hosts Judi @ cookingwithauntjuju and Stef @ The Kiwi Fruit. How bout a New Years Eve Blow Out for the 100th FF.
    Have a great weekend.

    Indeed time flies when you are making merry!!!! We have been having so much fun here at the Fiesta! Thanks Angie for this wonderful platform. It is a lot of work.An anniversary theme sounds great!

    Hello!!! Lately I’m not so present… but I’m trying to do my best… I think you should celebrate the FF #100 and maybe, take a 2 weeks off right after… 2 years and #100 must be celebrated!

    • Angie says:

      That’s such a sensible idea! I think we should go with that. So, maybe a 2-week celebration (just like the 1st Anniversary) and then a break. Hey, I understand about juggling priorities, don’t worry. As long as the baby’s needs are met, that’s the most important thing in the world! πŸ™‚

  5. I like the Christmas idea, but if it’s too early, we could also do New Years celebration, especially if the party is lasting 2 weeks! πŸ˜€

    • Angie says:

      I think a Christmas theme might be a little too late by the time Christmas actually comes around, lol…that sounds funny but that’s how blogs work. So a New Year celebration might be more appropriate. It’s also easier to incorporate the anniversary into it.

  6. After 4 years of blogging and 850+ recipes I am actually losing some steam. However, I will never turn down a Fiesta Friday celebration especially one so big πŸ™‚

    2 years without fail is not a small thing.. Something really great?!! So the 100th post should be a grand celebration.. We should plan something unique and awesome..!! Happy FF#4

  8. I may be a bit absent because my son will be home. He only makes it once a year. However, I would agree with Quinn and go for the New Years party theme.

  9. Jhuls says:

    Whoa!! 100th and 2 years of FF? Where did the time go? 2-week celebration sounds really good, Angie! Thank you again for this wonderful community! You all mean a lot to me!! Hugs!

  10. So exciting, 2 years and 100 posts! I remember last year’s celebration like it was only a month or so ago…there definitely should be something special but I suspect doing a Christmas theme to go out on Christmas may as you say be a bit late…another thought, though, if people were up for it would be linked to something else I came across – I am taking part in a food blogger cookie exchange where I have been secretly given the addresses of 3 bloggers to send cookies to and I will similarly receive from 3 others. It’s being done in a few countries so they match you with others within country so it doesn’t cost as much. Then all recipes are posted on the one day. We If people were up for it, we could do something similar although be a bit more open on what is sent – it could even just be ingredients such as a spice blend for a recipe that’s posted, for example. Don’t know what you think?

    • Angie says:

      I know of this cookie swap event and I think it’s a wonderful way to get to know each other better. Cookies might be easier to ship, however, than say…hummus dip, haha… But I think it might be a great incentive to offer free giveaways, i.e., spice blends, cookbooks, etc. I wouldn’t mind putting up some of these myself since it’s probably too late to find sponsors. But I think we should keep the swap in mind for one of these days. I really love the idea!

  11. Wow! 100 parties and two years?? How brilliant is that?! What a fab achievement πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I think maybe YOU should have some time off πŸ™‚ xxx

  12. my bucketlist is one day to be able to make macaroons, but got to master those squidgy things you need to squeeze it through yet they scare me. Wonderful dishes as always, omg 2 years? Faints

  13. Mr Fitz says:

    Maybe no theme at all….? Just a great big nice party.. with everyone around..

  14. Mr Fitz says:

  15. I can’t believe it’s been almost two years! Thanks for hosting, Angie! You’ve created a great place for everyone to hang out and mingle. As for a theme… I’m at a lost. Christmas might be too late. But maybe we could do a “potluck” sort of party. Someone can bring the drinks, someone else the desserts.

    • Angie says:

      Hard to believe we’ve been partying weekly for this long! And you’ve been there almost from the start. Thanks, Andrea! A giant potluck to celebrate is the perfect answer, I think. We need to celebrate big! πŸ™‚

  16. I can’t believe it’s almost 2 years already! Wow! It’s going to be a great celebration. A break or a very relaxed party would be great. You deserve both πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      First we’ll celebrate big, then we’ll take a break, how does that sound? And I already know what I’ll do during the break. Sleep! Sorta sleep-deprived over here πŸ™‚

  17. Wowzers! Two years! I can’t believe it – it was my 2 year blogiversary this week, so I’ve been blogging as long as I’ve been (sporadically!) joining Fiesta Friday! And I have no doubt this amazing community is why I’ve enjoyed blogging so much, so thanks everyone! No recipe for you this week, but I promise a traditional Yorkshire winter treat next week!
    And absolutely, for FF100 maybe a big New Year celebration (party food and cocktails all the way!) and then a much deserved holiday for you Angie! Your commitment deserves more than that to be sure, but a bit of a holiday helps! πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      Happy 2nd Blogiversary to you!! It’s a huge milestone! Do you know the majority of blogs are abandoned within 6 months? For us to be chugging along after 2 years is a big deal. So it looks like most people are voting for a big New Year bash. Cocktails are a must! I know I’ll be pouring myself a tall glass of bubbly for real! πŸ™‚

  18. Loretta says:

    Beautiful features as always. I agree, a huge Gala celebration should be in the works! 2 years and 100 posts? Bring out the bubbly! However, I’m thinking around Christmas time folks get inundated with one thing or another, I know I will be, so maybe a New Year’s celebration with all that fizz and sparkle to go with your 100th post?

  19. 2 years is a huge milestone as is the 100th post falling Christmas Day. There has to be a blowout celebration. I am sure everyone will start submitting holiday recipes starting really soon. Maybe Christmas post can be special featured recipes that have been submitted prior to Christmas Day and have the hosts pick their favorites the weeks prior with the unveliling on the FF#100. the following Friday can be a very special New Years Eve post with festive recipes.

  20. Ginger says:

    Wow – what a great anniversary! I hadn’t planned on writing a post but reading through the comments I couldn’t help thinking of our wonderful early Christmas this year … Anyways, what I wanted to say was well done you, Angie! I remember celebrating the 1st anniversary with you, and I think a New Year’s extravaganza sounds brilliant! But Suzanne’s idea sounds great, too! Now I am confused … To make up for my lack of direction I’ll volunteer to co-host – I absolutely adore Juju, so working with her would be extra special! Have a wonderful FF94 and let me know if you need me!

    • Angie says:

      I’m going to take you up on your offer, Ginger! You and Juju and maybe Suzanne if she agrees to it can manage the special event. The more help, the better. That way I can relax, muahahaha…

  21. Hi Angie, wow 100th post for Fiesta Friday, my suggestion is to choose “cookies” or “cupcakes” or any sweet item. There should be a theme.

    Thanks for hosting this for so long.

  22. I’ve been here from the beginning too! Those who participate in the big party could choose one of your recipes to make – their own version of course. Over the past two years you have made a little of everything so there is a recipe for everyone. Just a thought to thank you for all your hard work – might be fun πŸ™‚

  23. Arl's World says:

    I think Christmas will be to late for our 100th FF …I like the idea of doing a theme geared towards New Year’s Eve or Day …or a theme for just desserts? But I will love anything we do …even if we skip a week. πŸ™‚ Thank you for being our wonderful host. I love our FF! One of these times I would like to host …not sure when, but I would like to do it. πŸ™‚ Happy FF!!

    • Angie says:

      I think you’re right, Arlene! Only bloggers can say doing a Christmas post on Christmas is too late, lol! You should definitely co-host one of these days. I’m going to hold you to that! πŸ™‚

  24. Lina says:

    Congratulations! 100! Wow that’s awesome ☺☺☺I would suggest a Christmas themed party where everyone should bring a famous delight from their very own native☺ that way we can have recipes from all over as well as a themed part☺☺

    • Angie says:

      That would be a great party, Lina! And I would highly encourage you and everybody else to start bringing in Christmas recipes to FF so that by the time FF100 comes around we can feature these wonderful dishes! Thanks for a wonderful idea, hon! πŸ™‚

  25. Big bravo and congratulations Angie.100 Fiesta Friday and two years of partying, this is an amazing achievement. Have a superb weekend xx

  26. Hey, Angie, I think you should do a Christmas themed party the week BEFORE then skip the Christmas day party, then do a huge Anniversary New Year’s bash! That way, people who don’t celebrate Christmas won’t feel left out of the anniversary party, people who do celebrate Christmas will have the links BEFORE Christmas and won’t feel any pressure to be posting on Christmas day, and everyone can can participate and the huge New Year’s Anniversary Celebration Bash.

    Also, I just brought the Molasses Spice Cookies since you mentioned you need to use up your Molasses in the pantry! Hope you enjoy them! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  27. Woohoo!! 2 years, 100 parties, how can we not celebrate Angie!! You have already got some wonderful suggestions above and I can’t wait to join in πŸ˜€ <3

  28. Ok, Angie, pay special attention to post 75 – I told ya I’d make Molassres Spice Cookies for you! πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      I’m wide awake!! I’m paying very special attention to #75! Of course now I just bought malt syrup. So now I’m also looking for recipes with malt, haha… No, no…dont worry I’m sure I can treat it like molasses. Thank you much, Miss Mollie! You’re the best! XOXO

  29. milkandbun says:

    Wow! Can’t wait for FF100! definitely posting festive recipes or DIY is the lovely idea! but better to start a bit earlier , so we can choose some nice recipes and cook them during holidays! πŸ˜‰

    • Angie says:

      You got it, Mila! I need those festive ideas and recipes way before the festivities actually start so I can plan and buy the ingredients. So start bringing them to FF as soon as possible, please πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Talk to me, people!
