  1. Can’t wait to see the thousands of food photos Angie πŸ˜€ Is it spring in your part of the world yet? We had snow & hail this week πŸ™
    Those features all have me drooling btw!

    • Angie says:

      It is supposed to be Spring but this week it’s been chilly and wet! I had my skirt on yesterday and I was shivering. But yes, those photos need my attention! And the blog, too. Can you be my editor? I’ll pay you with lots of hugs and kisses, the virtual kind, lol!

  2. Ivette says:

    Everything looks so good!!! I canΒ΄t wait to see all the pictures from other bloggers! Happy FRIDAY! Yay!

  3. Hi Angie! I’m looking forward to seeing all those pictures you have! I’m practically drooling already…lol! Happy Fiesta Friday! πŸ˜€

    • Angie says:

      Oh, I’d better make sure those photos can live up to FF standards. I’m starting to get bored looking at my own photos, lol! Happy Fiesta Friday! ?

  4. Oh I feel your pain! I made two different recipes this week for the same thing and neither of them were the recipe that I CAN”T FIND! Arghhh. I am always so appreciative and humbled to have been featured on Fiesta Friday! There are so many amazing people and entries.

  5. I seem to be in a permanent state of catching up with myself too! can’t wait to see the photos and recipes that go with them though – I think you need a party to get you going though πŸ˜‰

    Awesome features as always, i’m drooling over that zucchini bread!

    This week I’m bringing two recipes to the party, and one of them is a recipe from one of our very own (jhuls) that she shared at FF a few weeks ago – and it was awesome! That’s why I love this party πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    Happy weekend Angie, hope it’s a good one!!

    • Angie says:

      I have this fantasy that I stay home all day, the night never comes, it’ll be sunny 24/7 and I don’t ever have to sleep so I can continue doing what I like doing best. Fiesta Fridaying with all of you! But even now I have to get ready for work already, darn! Oh, what are you bringing, now I have to go look. ??

  6. I hate when I can find the recipe that I took the pics for in the first place. Trust me even when you try to do this full time you still can’t catch up. There is always something new that needs attention and of by the way you still need to post 3 recipes a week. I also have that undiagnosed ADD problem. :)) Oh well there is always next week. Happy FF! Great features this week.. Yum!

    • Angie says:

      I guess you’ll need an assistant or an administrator even when you blog full time. I know I’d probably need several just to keep me on task. You know, that ADD problem, lol! Have a great weekend, Quinn!

  7. Jhuls says:

    While baking or cooking, I usually always have my mental draft, but I never actually make a draft until I decide to post them. The next thing I know, everything is gone. It’s good I still remember where I got the recipe or remember the changes I made. Having too many photos makes it difficult for me to decide which one to share first, especially that I barely have time to blog these days. If ever you find where to buy time, please let me know, too. πŸ˜€ Happy FF, Angie. x

    • Angie says:

      Good thing we’re not blogging to make a living, Jhuls. I’m really impressed with those who can do it full time. Such dedication and determination. I’m too lazy, lol! Like right now, I feel like taking a nap after coming home from dinner with the family. I didn’t even cook and I’m tired ??

  8. A.M.B. says:

    These look delicious! I’m particularly interested in the chocolate zucchini bread, but I’ll probably have more luck with the fish (I’m not the best baker!). I’m saving these recipes to try out.

    • Angie says:

      But that bread sounds pretty easy to make, though. You should give it a try! I’m definitely going to, and that margarita pie as well. Thanks for checking them out! ?

  9. Suchitra says:

    Lovely features Angie! At some point we all have experienced what you are going through! Happy Fiesta Friday Angie!

  10. I hear you on the editing photos and remembering recipes. It’s a lot sometimes, but still fun when you have the time πŸ™‚ Happy FF! And give me that Margarita Pie!!!

    • Angie says:

      It IS fun! That’s why I’m still in it. It does give you a sense of accomplishment when you finish a post. And I second you on the pie. It just sounds so awesome! Refreshing and magical! ??

  11. I know what you mean on catching up, I feel like that all the time but particularly at the moment. Love the features, I feel bad I didn’t get round posts much – must do better this week now my visitors have gone (though I’m away part of the week. Agh!) Look forward to seeing your recipes in due course.

    • Angie says:

      Oh you’re going away again? You do travel a lot, don’t you? Which is impressive considering you have two little ones. I remember those days. Took a lot of preparation and courage to travel with the kiddies ? Have fun, Caroline, wherever you’re going! ❀️❀️

  12. Happy Fiesta Friday Angie! Thank you for featuring my matcha cupcakes!
    I can totally relate to what you’re going through. I’ve been guilty of that this whole month… Hopefully I can get more done this weekend. Hope you have a relaxing weekend πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      I love your matcha cupcakes, Ai! They look so pretty. I really must get matcha now. It’s one of those ingredients that’s been forever in my list to try πŸ™‚

  13. Superb features as usually, Angie. I hope one day it will not be virtual πŸ˜€ I’m waiting for your pictures. Happy FF and have a great great weekend! πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      Wouldn’t that be something? If somehow all this could be real? I’m hoping I can carve out time this week to look at all those pictures. I hope you had a great weekend! πŸ™‚

  14. Loretta says:

    Can’t wait for your pictures Angie, they are always so real, you need to teach a photography class in your spare time πŸ™‚ Thanks for featuring my humble recipe, and thanks to Judi too. It is always a happening place at Fiesta Friday, now if someone could just tell me how to organize all the different recipes I’ve bookmarked after visiting FF, I’d be a happy gal. There’s got to be a system, and I just can’t figure it out. I still use my desktop and have hundreds bookmarked, but absolutely no system to it. Enjoy your weekend, it’s quite dreary isn’t it?

    • Angie says:

      No one will sign up for the class!! Truth be told, I struggle with photography. I’m not trained properly, and I do everything just by feel or just by what I consider “looks good”, ignoring all the rules about lighting, white balance, etc. I even stopped using reflectors and artificial lighting. It takes too much time to set up! So, whatever looks good is the only rule I follow πŸ˜€

    • Angie says:

      Oh and about organizing all those recipes, try Pinterest! You can even have your own secret boards.

      • Loretta says:

        Thanks Angie, I do have a Pinterest account, but I do not use it for the blog, in fact I hardly use it anymore, I’ll have to look into that soon. I’d rather have them private.

  15. Happy Fiesta Angie!!! I look forward to seeing your wonderful photos, they’re always beautiful ☺️☺️ Xxx

    • Angie says:

      Thanks, Elaine! I was just saying to Loretta that I now do my photography a little more loosely, not following rules, etc. Whatever looks good is my new motto πŸ˜€

      • Sounds like a great motto to me! My photos are pot luck really!

        • Angie says:

          Lol! At some point, I told myself life’s too short to worry about lighting or white balance or whatever. Unless of course you do this professionally or as a living, then that’s a different story.

        • I agree. I think it becomes too easy to get caught up in trying to produce something amazing, so many food bloggers take such amazing photos, and the desire to create something equally stunning grows on you! At the end of the day, I photograph what I’m eating, in my kitchen…so it’s shoot and pray…
          Personally, I think your photos always look amazing and very professional πŸ™‚

        • Angie says:

          Thanks! I do try to make them presentable, but yes I eat whatever I take pictures of. I know some people use strange and inedible ingredients to make the food looks more enticing, but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. Maybe if someone were to hire me as a food stylist, I wouldn’t mind doing it. I just don’t want to waste my food, lol!

  16. Antonia says:

    Good luck Angie πŸ˜€ Everything looks wonderful and that chocolate zucchini bread looks delicious!

    • Angie says:

      Thanks, Antonia! I agree, that zucchini bread looks incredibly delicious. I’d love to have a slice right about now πŸ˜€

  17. Wooohoo I am such a late contributor this week. We have had a bank holiday, so much going on, I acutally wiggled my hips yesterday and danced to a band Angie, can you believe it? πŸ˜€

    Well I hope whatever it is that kept you away from blogging and editing photos was exciting hmmm?

    big hugs xx

    • Angie says:

      Good for you! About the dancing, I mean, not about being late ? I can’t even remember the last time I went to a dance club or concert, too long ago. What’s keeping me from blogging is just life in general. Things you have to do, places to go, kids and husband needing attention, etc. Nothing exciting, I’m afraid ?

  18. Hey Angie. How exactly does your blog work? Do you feature certain bloggers? All the recipes look so great!

    • Angie says:

      All the recipes written on the blog are mine, but I do run a weekly link party. My cohosts and I select several links each week to highlight as features.

Talk to me, people!
