    OMG! This Fiesta keeps getting better and better … ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks so much for a wonderful two weeks, Angie, Mollie, Suzanne, Judi and all the other participants: it’s been an absolute blast! I cannot wait to link up to #101 and you should see my to-do list following all those wonderful recipes that were presented. I am incredibly chuffed to have ended up in the features, I have to say. Thak you so much, Angie, for your incredible patience and support throughout those two weeks, as well as for entertaining us for over 100 Fiestas! Happy Fiesta Friday!

      Your Yule Log was the most popular!! It must have been the 70 degrees Christmas we had. Lol, no, no….just kidding, it’s truly spectacular. It’s sure to become a new Christmas tradition. I think it’s a brilliant twist on a classic!!

      • Ginger says:

        It helps if it’s warm, although I can always have ice cream. I spent a week in the Soviet Union in 1987 living on ice cream … it was the only word I knew in Russian …

    • Thank you for the very nice compliment Ginger! I was very taken by your one of a kind buche de noel. Even though I can’t eat it because of the dairy, I can very much appreciate the artistry and work that went into it. Congratulations!

    I am dancing up and down with joy! Thank you so much for featuring my warm lentil salad in the 100th fiesta ! I am truly so honored to be featured with all the amazing entries! I want to make them all!
    Special thanks to Angie, Steffi, Mollie, Suzanne and Judi for hosting such a grand fiesta! As always, it is so much fun to mingle and sample all food and visit everyone.

    Judi, amba haldi pickle is available at Indian stores but when I saw my super market selling fresh mango ginger, I made an instant one at home using ready made pickle masala I had on hand, so I could control the oil I put in it.
    If I get the pickle bottle from the Indian store, I drain the oil that is on top and keep the bottle in my refrigerator. I believe that extra oil is to preserve the pickle at room temperature.

  8. So many fantastic recipes and thank you for featuring my scallops! I can imagine you had a hard time deciding, there were so many great dishes to choose from. I can see how Steffi’s yule log was most viewed, though it looked so good! Congratulations on a great party, on with the next Fiesta Friday!

    • Angie says:

      Your scallops will be the one I’m going to try first! But I’m going to use jumbo shrimps since that’s what I have on hand. Can’t wait!

  9. Good morning, Angie! What a party this was – can you imagine if we were actually all physically in one place what that spread would have looked like? I think you could sell tickets! For a LOT!

    I’m tickled to have been a co-host – and I’d do it again in a heartbeat, but boy was it hard (and very subjective) to choose between them all! I’m just pinning the whole darn post so I can remember to refer back to it for my next party coz there are so many things I want to make!!

    Happy FF, and I’m off to link this week’s recipes to FF 101!!

    • Angie says:

      I’d be BUYING the tickets! If you guys are cooking, I won’t! I’ll be eating instead. I may be crazy but I’m not stupid, lol! And then I’ll bring home the leftovers, too ๐Ÿ˜€ Oh, we’ll be needing your help again, Mollie, you can count on it. And I’m with you on the features, very subjective. There weren’t that many overlaps on the selections, did you notice? So anything with more than 1 vote automatically gets on the finals. That’s why I have co-hosts, to make it more fair. And sometimes we vote, to mix it up a little. I remain grateful for all your help and support. Love & hugs!

    Such amazing features! Congratulations to all the chefs, this truly was a special Fiesta Friday #100! Would love to try out many of them, if not all. xo

    • Angie says:

      I’m planning to immediately make that cranberry bacon jam, then the egg bread, then the mango ginger dressing, then tortillas…Oh I guess eventually all of them, haha… Thanks for being part of FF, Loretta! XOXO

        hi lovely Angie, thank you so much! I still remember when you first invited me to join you guys and I was so touched! ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy happy 2016!! xxx

  12. Thank you so much Judi, Mollie, Steffi, Suzanne, and of course Angie for having me featured! There sure are a lot of very dedicated and passionate chefs in our community to inspire us. The best part is that you can always count on positive support when you arrive at Fiesta Friday. It’s so very nice to be in such company. I can only imagine what number 200 will be like!

    • Angie says:

      You’re welcome, Gerard! So great to hear that you continue to enjoy Fiesta Friday. I hope it’ll stay that way when #200 comes around! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Thank you so much Angie and the 4 fabulous co-hosts for the feature! Congrats to all of us FF participants, it just keeps getting bigger & better while retaining its cosiness! Can’t wait for the next 100 ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Wow, I’m honoured to be featured! I missed some of the other features so I’ll have to take another look (especially the mystery-herb tortillas?!?) FF 100 was simply spectacular–Angie and the cohosts, you all did such a wonderful job, and went all out for a welcoming and lively party! As Naina said above… looking forwards to FF 200! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Talk to me, people!
