  1. Sounds like a heck of a party Angie!!! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all my Fiesta Friday friends I have met this year. It has been fun getting to know everyone and growing my blogging circle. Thanks Angie for hosting every week and to this weeks co-host Caroline @ Caroline’s Cooking and Linda @ La Petite Paniere.. Happy FF!!

      And you’d better be there, Quinn, in your tuxedo! Or whatever party getup you prefer. The fancier the better πŸ˜€ Likewise, it’s been fun getting to know you!

    Triple celebration for 3 weeks sounds like a great plan Angie!! I am drooling over this week’s features!! Happy holidays to you and your family!

  3. Woohoo, party time! Let’s kind of start this week and that will make it 3 as Su says πŸ™‚ Looking forward to doing the rounds of all the tasty dishes, and putting my thinking cap on for the celebration – are we thinking party food?

  4. You are so funny Angie! Great selections for features and the gala celebration sounds like a perfect plan with the holidays upon us.

  5. Ginger says:

    I am so looking forward to that party, Angie! Are you all organised and set for the real thing?! I’m ok for the first two days, but after Christmas Day it’s all foggy … leftovers, maybe?

  6. Good features Angie; I especially liked Sarah’s bread. Looking forward to the two week long party – I have not partied like that since I was in college. LOL! I am definitely going to participate as it should be a lot of fun celebrating a special occasion with everyone from Fiesta Friday πŸ™‚

  7. Excited to get the pre-celebrations started this week!! Thanks again Angie for allowing me to co-host this week with Caroline πŸ™‚ Oh, and I can assure you the mini stage-fright has gone, these recipes look way too good for nerves πŸ˜€

    • Angie says:

      No, it’s me who has to thank you for co-hosting! You’re doing all the hard work! But it can be a lot of fun, too, right? And that’s probably why all your jitters are gone. These folks are just so wonderful to hang out with! πŸ™‚

  8. The party sounds like FUN!!!! I do wish that Selma could be with us though πŸ™
    Anyway, I’m not here to dampen spirits – bring on #99 and the lovely Linda, yay!!!! xxxx

    • Angie says:

      I know how you feel. Selma would have been so excited. She was always so supportive. If she were here, FF would have been a lot more than what it is. She was always giving me ideas. I miss Selma.

  9. oh my that all looks simply amazing. Especially that ham…mmmm
    Now Angie I don’t know why i am still having issues uploading images to InLinkz, I am clearly the only one, cannot even do it from a URL Link, says its either too big or not an image, very odd, even says it when I pick small ones, it must be an issue my end, bah hum bug! x

  10. Totally ignore my comment about images Angie, I appear to have done it yay! LOL…slaps my forehead x

  11. 99?! Where has the time gone! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone πŸ™‚

  12. Loretta says:

    A large pat on your back dear Angie, you’ve brought us all this far, I’ll forever be indebted to you and the Lovely Selma who introduced me to Fiesta Friday. Great features, now to think of the big party coming up and what I might contribute…..hmmmmm

    • Angie says:

      You must miss Selma very much. You have so much in common. We can’t help thinking about her at times like this. She was always giving me ideas. She was even going to draft me better rules and guidelines. Right now I’m actually a little undecided about what to do with having 2 separate blogs. Wish I could ask her opinion πŸ™

  13. Yolo?! You’re doing it again, aren’t you. I haven’t heard that one. Must Google what it means. Anyway, massive congrats for next week! Oh, and I haven’t heard of that jingle either. πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      What about cray cray? I think I’m okay with just cray, but cray cray?! That’s too much, don’t you think? This is what happens when you work in a school; you start sounding like one of the kids yourself! And why don’t you come to the party, Sir? You’re one of the original cray members, after all, haha… Btw, the jingle is from 90s Denny’s grand slam commercial, except it was 1.99, not 9.99. Someone at work helped me remember. Thank God! Now there’s no more heartburn in my chest! πŸ˜€

    • Angie says:

      Oh, and yolo stands for you only live once πŸ˜€

  14. Jhuls says:

    Angie, I am so excited for the FF #100. Yay! And two weeks? Hmmm, I must prepare my tummy for the delicious foods and of course, for the unlimited chit chats. πŸ˜€

    • Angie says:

      And I’m preparing mine for the the yummy stuff you’ll be bringing! You’d better, Jhuls! Btw, do you know how to make Sans Rival cake? I had it once and omgz, it was incredible!! One day I must try to make it. It looks so complicated but that would be one dessert I’ll be willing to work all day in the kitchen to make! πŸ™‚

      • Jhuls says:

        Haha! That’s crazy, because I was also thinking about making Sans Rival cake for FF#100, but if I do, that will be my first time. But I suddenly changed my mind and thought of a fondant cake, but then again, I changed my mind. πŸ˜€

        I have seen recipes, Angie, but I haven’t decided which one is good for me. And yeah, that cake is insanely good! Now, you make me want to make the cake. But making the meringue makes me scared – I failed thrice (making simple meringues – all three attempts result to a burned meringues), so I will see if I can find my fighting spirit again.

  15. Sarah James @ Tales From The Kitchen Shed says:

    Thanks for featuring my Cranberry & Marzipan Star Angie & for your lovely comment, I couldn’t help but smile at the thought of my bread on the top of a Christmas tree 😊
    Traveling to Guernsey this weekend to spend Christmas with our family but I hope to join the party in the New Year. Congratulations on the big 100 & a huge thank you to hosting the fiesta party. Look forward to seeing some fab festive recipes over the next 2 weeks.

    • Angie says:

      You’re welcome, Sarah! One day I must try your amazing bread. I even showed it to my daughter and you should have seen her face! Her jaw dropped! She thought it was the most beautiful bread ever. I hope you’ll make it to the party. It’s a 2-week event so you can definitely catch us still partying when the new year comes around. πŸ™‚

      • Sarah James @ Tales From The Kitchen Shed says:

        That would be lovely Angie, your daughter is so kind, pass on my thanks. Off to check out the Fiesta 100 party πŸ™‚

  16. milkandbun says:

    Oh my goodness! So many festive treats.. my mouth is watering! hahaha I’ve missed few FF, but #100 and Xmas all together, I will be joining the party 100%! Can’t wait! πŸ™‚

  17. This is amazing and I’ve so missed this warm, welcoming space so much! I’ve been on a little blogging hiatus, but coming back and still seeing so many familiar (and new!) faces is such a treasure. I’m so happy that FF #100 is just around the corner and even if I cannot contribute, I’ll be sure to attend. So, here’s to 100 more!!! Congrats πŸ˜€

    • Angie says:

      Hi, Justine!! Where you been, girl?! We’ve missed you and I’m glad to hear you’ll be attending the big bash! It’ll be exciting to see old and new friends together, catching up with one another. It’s been such a busy year for me as well so I’m really looking forward to kicking back and relaxing during the holidays, and visiting as many blogger friends as possible! I feel like I’ve been out of the loop with so many myself! πŸ™‚

  18. Thanks Angie for another lovely party. I am also exited for the next party and celebration.
    I joined Fiesta Friday around 8 months before.
    Merry Christmas and happy holidays.

    • Angie says:

      You’re welcome, Sadhna! I’m glad to hear you’re excited about the big celebration. I’m super excited myself and hardly can wait to see what everybody will be doing and making to celebrate the holidays! πŸ™‚

  19. Thank you so very much for the feature Angie!! I’ll be working right up to Christmas Eve and have had to finish off so many tasks, so have been MIA πŸ™ but can’t wait for #100!!! So exciting πŸ˜€ Wish you a very Merry Christmas and lots of love xx

    • Angie says:

      And I was complaining that I have to work right up to the day before Christmas Eve! Not to worry, Naina, the party is 2 weeks long. You’ll have plenty of time to catch us celebrating. Looking forward to welcoming you to the party! Merry Christmas! XOXO

  20. Sue says:

    Super excited. I just recently resuscitated my blogging muscles, blood and breath. I miss it! I especially miss Fridays. Do you have your hosts? I assume that you do . . . . looking forward to a big time blow-out party!!!

    • Angie says:

      Well, hello!! So wonderful to hear you’ll be at the party! Can’t wait to see what you’ll be bringing. I know whatever it is, it’ll be spectacular! Yes, I do my my hosts lined up. 4 of them! πŸ˜€ But I’ll be happy to have you anytime in the future. Just tell me when!

  21. tentimestea says:

    Can’t wait for FF #100! I love the idea of an extended two week party–it’ll help spread out all the delicious food and fun! Gorgeous features from last week. I’m getting excited to do some holiday baking now πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      And it’ll give me time to relax a little, haha… I won’t have to rush. I have my ulterior motive. Although I think it’ll benefit everyone; there’s so much to do around the holidays! Can’t wait to see all your holiday baking, Laurie! πŸ™‚

  22. Margherita says:

    I am very sorry to be always late and have missed a lot of FF parties… I hope to be there for the #100… I wish you a very Merry Christmas!

    • Angie says:

      Perfectly understandable, Margy! Don’t feel bad; you’re a new mom! But I really hope you can make it to the special FF100. Merry Christmas to you, too! We’re getting ready to go to midnight mass, woohoo! πŸ™‚

Talk to me, people!
