  1. ? Oh, poor you! Oscar got stung by one and it got stuck in his fur, didn’t get the stinger out till the next day ??. Nice cake! Have a good weekend

    I have never seen or heard about yellow jacket, but having got stung 5 times sounds scary! Take care Angie. Hope you feel better soon.

    As always, lovely features 🙂

  3. Nadia says:

    Oh no! I got stung once last year and boy! Was it painful.

  4. You’re just to sweet those yellow jackets thought you were their queen? Well really that’s awful! I hope you are doing o.k.!

    • Angie says:

      Lol, Julie, I love how you try to give it a positive spin ?? Seriously, though, it could have been worse, right? Like allergic reactions. One of my coworkers has to carry epipen everywhere she goes. She almost died! I’m doing great, just a little itchy on the sting sites, that’s all ?

  5. Sandhya says:

    Angie, I have been stung by a yellow jacket so can relate to the pain. And you got stung 5 times? I feel for you girl!
    I got stung as I was doing last minute prep for my husband’s surprise party in the backyard…….just before the guests came….not a pretty sight 🙂

    • Angie says:

      Isn’t it the most terrible thing?! I think much worse than a bee sting! Thankfully I wasn’t allergic and I’m now doing much better. Swelling all down. You can see a little red still though. No biggie ?

  6. Oh wow! I didn’t expect that at all, thank you for so much for featuring my sauce, and for yours, and Laura’s, lovely words ??? I’ll be back later with my post, but in the meantime….ouch!!!! 5 stings? There’s obviously something about you, Angie ? Xxx

    • Angie says:

      I NEED to feature that sauce so I won’t forget to try it!! It sounds incredible, with cocoa powder and all. I don’t know, Elaine… I also seem to attract mosquitos. They swarm me and not the person next to me!! Unfair, right?!

      • I’m afraid I’m that person too, I decided as a child that I’m obviously tasty! I even get bitten in the winter, when there aren’t even any bugs around!!!
        And thank you, I’ve still got some of the sauce in the fridge and the flavour is just developing more and more (as is the heat!!)

  7. OMG Angie, you poor thing. I was no stranger to yellow jacket and even wasp (far worse) stings as a kid. Then one adulthood day, a yellow jacket stung me, and I had become deathly allergic. Plus, I was an hour’s drive away from medical care, while my face and body began to swell.
    Take care. Huge hugs.

    • Angie says:

      Oh, that must have been awful! That was what I was afraid of! Luckily I wasn’t allergic. They say it depends on the species, though. Thanks, Teagan, I’m feeling so much better ?

  8. Yikes – 5 stings, you must have been working near a nest! I just had the outside of my house and shed sprayed – they love the shutters and I had a very big one on my shed. Afraid to get the mower out! The tech looked like “ghostbusters” in his protective gear 🙂

    • Angie says:

      I was watering my plants when I was stung. I had no idea they can also nest in the ground, like literally a hole in the ground! I didn’t even see it! Yup, it’s time to call pest control. I haven’t gone out at all since!

  9. Nancy says:

    Oh my… poor, poor Angie. You’ve earned a good whine, as far as I’m concerned…and probably a bottle of wine (If only to ease your pain)! Delicious features from last weeks party. Thanks for allowing me to help with co-hosting duties this week. 😀

  10. Angie, I am totally with you and whine right along with you. As a child I was the recipient of multiple yellow jacket stings, I was swarmed. Of course the fact that I thought it would be fun to knock their hive or nest whatever it’s called out of a tree didn’t help. Painful, red, swollen and you know what to this day I have never forgotten. Ouch.

  11. ggstratton says:

    All of these dishes are so beautiful as usual. As far as yellow jackets go-I have never been stung (yet) but hear it is brutal and they sting more than once and rather quickly. I have been chased though. It is inevitable that I will be stung because we live in West Texas and they are in abundant here. Most of them live in the ground and any vibration will trigger them. (mower) On the positive side, being surprised and chased by them is very good cardio. 🙂

    • Angie says:

      Lol, I love the cardio spin! I did sprint as fast as I could, haha… You know, I was completely clueless about them living in the ground! I kept looking for a hanging nest! I must have accidentally watered their hole. I have to call pest control asap; I’m not stepping outside until it’s safe. Thanks for stopping by!?

  12. michelleoblogoff says:

    wow! You deserve a “wine” a big glass! Lol
    I hope you make it without any more stings ?
    Thanks for making it to the computer to host!
    Always a blast at the Fiesta! ?

    • Angie says:

      Lol, thanks, Michelle! I think it’s actually good to have Fiesta Friday to look forward to. I was pretty bummed before but now feeling much happier! ?

  13. Eeks, not good, stings can be so sore. Hope they feel better soon! Lovely features as ever.

  14. I don’t like yellow jackets either, and I hope you are feeling better soon. We found baking soda helpful when my daughter was stung. Also, the features this week look delicious! I want to try them all! School starts next week, so I’m hoping to make more frequent Friday appearances. 🙂

    • Angie says:

      That’s what I did, put on baking soda paste and ice pack, too. They helped. Now I’m just applying Benadryl stick to stop the itching. Wow, school starts very early for you guys! I’m looking forward to seeing more of you here at FF, Julia!

  15. Lily says:

    You poor thing. I’ve been stung once, so i know the pain. Well, I hope you are feeling better and I’m with Michelle, you deserve a BIG glass of wine (or two) Have a great weekend Angie, hugs:)

    • Angie says:

      I think I deserve three, Lily, haha… Besides, it’s Friday! So maybe tonight we’ll open that big bottle ?? Thanks, hon, I’m feeling better! ?

  16. Jhuls says:

    Oh no! I haven’t stung by a yellow jacket before, but I can imagine the terrible pain it does. I think you were the sweetest thing they found that time.
    😀 I wish you feel better really soon, Angie. Hugs!

  17. chefjulianna says:

    Oh Angie! Poor you…. I feel your pain! I was stung once by something yellow – a bee, wasp or the jackets, I don’t know, but it hurt sooooo much! 5 times, I can’t even imagine! Lucky you are not allergic! Take good care of yourself!

    • Angie says:

      It was probably a yellow jacket that got you ‘coz I’ve been stung by a bee, too, and I swear it wasn’t half this painful! It was over quickly. These lingered. I know I’m lucky I’m not allergic! Feeling better now, thanks! ?

  18. Oh no! So sorry to hear about your stings! Can’t believe 5 times you poor thing! Hope you’re feeling better now 🙂 Have a great weekend!

  19. Shari says:

    I am really sorry, Angie! 🙁 That is so many bites. Even one would be bad, but 5? I would be feeling sorry for myself, too. I hope you are feeling better now!

  20. Suchitra says:

    Sorry to hear about the sting, Angie! You seem to be like my daughter, attractive to bugs that sting! I have never heard of yellow jacket and I am not eager to get aquatinted with it either. Hope you feel better soon!

  21. I think it is a sign – even though they aren’t bees, you should make a bee-sting cake! The same thing happened to my daughter, too, all in one day. She was around 8, poor thing!

  22. nimmiafzal says:

    oh Angie dear..feeling so sorry for you,hope you are okay now! i also got stung by one when i was a kid!! still i can remember the pain..take care..

  23. Jan Lipi says:

    EEK! I’m allergic to bees so that would have sent me into a panic mode! The good news, hopefully, is they are out there pollinating the gardens!

    • Angie says:

      These are wasps, do they help pollinate? I think they do help getting rid of the bad bugs, though, like aphids etc. but still I’d rather they don’t nest in my garden ?

  24. Oh nooooo! That sounds painful!! So sorry to hear that! HOpe you are having a good weekend though, you deserve it <3

  25. How terrible! You must have a nest somewhere nearby, it is sometimes difficult to find the nest but those yellow traps work pretty well. Thank you so much for featuring me this week. We are on vacation in Ashland, OR for the Shakespeare festival. I was absolutely surprised when I opened this week’s blog post. Enjoy the rest of summer.

    • Angie says:

      I just googled the traps, didn’t know they existed! Thanks for the info, I’m going to give them a try. We love your one pan recipe! It sounds delicious and easy enough for a busy weeknight. Have fun in OR, Shakespeare festival sounds amazing! I wonder if there’s a Jane Austen festival; I’d go to that! ??

  26. petra08 says:

    Stung 5 times? It sounds vile! You must have caught them at some sensitive time or been extra attractive to them! I hope you can enjoy the weekend and the week ahead despite the evil little yellow jackets! xx

    • Angie says:

      I know, right?! Five freaking times!! Thankfully I’m back to normal now, just very slight redness. It’s been a busy weekend, lots of shopping, but nice nonetheless having time to spend with family ??

  27. So flattered to be featured this week! I’m glad Su gets my sense of humor with trying to pull off that cake as healthy lol

    • Angie says:

      Lol, who are you trying to fool, eh Haley?! But so whaaat?! It’s got all those berries! And one mint leaf, okay two, haha… Love that cake!! ?

  28. Loretta says:

    Oh poor you Angie, 5 times? You hold some attraction for those yellow jackets I’m assuming? lol It brings to mind a few years ago when I was turning the compost on top of the hill in our backyard, I probably disturbed a ground hornets nest….at first I heard buzzing around, I thought they were flies, but then when I realized what they were, I ran down the hill with my pitchfork screaming and carrying on. What a sight that was!!! Glad yours ended on a good note. 🙂

    • Angie says:

      Lol, Loretta, that must have been a sight! I’m so glad you outran them, haha… It’s no laughing matter, though. These insects are serious! I probably will do the same from now on anytime I hear a buzzing sound ??

  29. Sorry to hear, Angie. A yellow jacket sting is an awful thing.

Talk to me, people!
