Fiesta Friday #144

  1. Sorry I hated that show but I love to can jams, jellies and salsa. Maybe the show hit to close to home. All that time my parents made me work in the garden. Happy FF!

      You hated Laura Ingalls?? How could you Quinn! I would have traded places with you. We didn’t have much of a garden. There was landscaped stuff, but no veggies or anything like that!

    I used to love Little House on the Prairie! I totally agree, canning is a lost art. My mom used to can, and I loved watching her. Mouth watering features this week Angie πŸ˜€

    • Angie says:

      My grandma used to preserve stuff, but my mom not so much πŸ˜€ She’s more of a career/business woman. I guess it skipped a generation, lol πŸ˜€

  3. I should never read your post just before lunch, I forgot to make the bread this morning πŸ™
    But it all looks so wonderful and tasty and yes, making produce from the garden for the winter months is comforting. More Hygge I guess! πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the amazing feature offering so seducing and inspiring recipes. Being a passionated fan of Hasselback POTATOES this idea of Hasselback Butternut Squash attracted my eyes and sins at once. And loving cinnamon rolls i simply HAVE to try those Butternut and pecan rolls asap…. have a nice weekend! kind regards Liz

    • Angie says:

      So glad to hear you’re enjoying Fiesta Friday, Liz! Aren’t these recipes amazing?! I’m all set to try some of these recipes myself! πŸ˜€

      • Liz Collet says:

        Indeed, Angie! I detected FiestaFriday during this week, but it won my heart at once for several reasons. Only one is the common love to make Friday special since childhood and as working Mum later myself. And FiestaFriday is a nice and challenging occasion to increase a number of posts in english language in my usually in german language published blog. Thanks for giving an impulse to that, too! πŸ™‚

  5. I have to say never read Little House so don’t even know the characters! But canning is something I always mean to do more – jam/preserves at least. Such gorgeous features, as ever! If only there was more time to try them all (or taste them through the internet πŸ™‚ )

    • Angie says:

      It’s a wonderful series! I used to love watching the show and read the books, so I bought my daughter her own set, and she loves it as well. I know what you mean, so many recipes, so little time… πŸ™‚

    Happy FF Angie!
    My sisters and I loved little house on the prairie!
    We wished for horse drawn buggy days! Mainly, we liked the fact that you had to climb a ladder to go to bed! Ha ha!
    We grew up in the country but a little more “suburbanized” we were only on 8 acres so you could still see neighbors in the distance!
    Thanks for the Canned goods! It may not be trending but it will never be a lost art!
    Michelle

    • Angie says:

      Haha, I forgot about the ladder! Maybe that’s why I now keep a bunk bed in my loft! I’ve always wanted to live in the woods or on a farm πŸ˜„ And keep a llama, lol. Actually I’d be happy if I can keep a few chickens. They’re so fun to watch πŸ˜‚

  7. Shinta says:

    Thank you for the feature! I am beyond thrilled that you picked the Diwali dessert jars!
    I have never read the Little House on the Prarie series, but love the idea of canning fruit for the winter months. Ahh those Hasselback butternut squash with bacon look tempting, they might make my weekend menu! thanks for sharing

    • Angie says:

      Your Diwali jars are just lovely, Shinta! You’d love the books! I highly recommend them! I still love them even now. Those Hasselback squash are brilliant! Only Julie can think of recipes like that! πŸ‘πŸ‘

  8. I still love canning too! Lovely features as always πŸ™‚ Have a wonderful weekend!!

  9. Ginger says:

    Hello stranger – sorry for the long silence! Can’t wait to get back into the swing of all things Fiesta Friday!!
    I always wanted to make the syrup swirls in the snow. Still waiting for the snow …

    • Angie says:

      Where you been, girl?! So great to see you back!! Just in time for Thanksgiving and Christmas, best time of the year for all cooks! I think. I guess. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  10. I was never Laura. I think I was the blind older sister LOL! I didn’t get an email this morning saying FiestaFriday was live, and I don’t see a picture of my recipe here Angie. Maybe it’s just me? I checked spam and it wasn’t there?

    • o.k. my pic is there now but still don’t know why I didn’t get the email. I’m a case I’ll tell you Angie. I used to can but no more. Those little jars are adorable.

      • Angie says:

        Thanks for letting me know, Julie! There may have been a plugin I use that’s causing the problem. I recently just bulk updated all the plugins without scrutinizing first. I need to spend time on this blog!! If it continues, please let me know 😘

    • Angie says:

      Aha! I knew someone wanted to be Mary πŸ˜„πŸ˜„ So you’re quiet, proper and pretty. Secretly I wanted to be like that, lol πŸ˜‚

      • NO not very good at proper or quiet Angie. Quite a problem keeping my mouth shut. Just the older sister while the younger one had all the fun. πŸ™‚

        • Angie says:

          Aaw…you poor thing! I was always the spoiled brat, even though I’m not the youngest. But I’m trying to make up for it now. I’m very very good and caring and loving toward all my siblings πŸ˜„πŸ˜„ Anything they want, I’ll do! πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡

  11. My daughter loved the Laura Ingalls series too! When she was younger, she used to pretend that Laura Ingalls was knocking at our door, coming to visit. πŸ™‚ I love your pretty jars of preserves.

    • Angie says:

      Lol, that’s so cute! Did she ever ask you to cook anything from the book? I think my daughter may have asked about codfish balls, too, once, but the thing she was obsessed with was corn cakes! πŸ˜ƒ Thanks, Jenny! 😘

  12. I didn’t get an email either? In fact my inbox has been very quiet today, i wonder if there’s something going on?
    I reckon I could be Ma Ingalls, if I ate sugar!!!

    • Angie says:

      I know I’m having problem on my end! I keep getting spammy pop ups! My server host couldn’t find anything though. I may have to bring my iPad to the Apple Store. Lol, no, don’t start eating sugar! You’re lucky to have been able to eliminate it from your diet. I’m trying to add less and less in my coffee and baked goods, but can’t completely get rid of the cravings for sweets! 😩

  13. Margherita says:

    I am terribly sorry Angie… I had some problems with my laptop and I had to wait for my husband to fix it! But I am here, happy to co-host this week!
    Thanks a lot for featuring my rolls, I am very glad you guys liked the recipe!

  14. I get it! My daughter has dressed as Laura Ingalls for a couple of Halloween parties. I was obsessed with Little House on the Prairie back in the day. πŸ™‚ Looks like you’ve got some impressive canning going on over there!

    • Angie says:

      Your daughter sounds so cute!! I bought my daughter an apron and bonnet, too, and her grandma made her a dress. But only coz she had to play Betsy Ross for a school play. But whenever she pretended to be Laura, she would put them on, lol πŸ˜‚

  15. That Diwali pudding looks absolutely stunning. It has been ages it feels since I have been able to sit down and blog anything properly, so very happy to be able to contribute this week. I also think it is so sweet and lovely that your daughter asks you make her things, long may that continue, us mum’s need to cling on to every last little bits of bonding we have with our children as it can disappear fast xx

    • Angie says:

      Hi, stranger! πŸ˜„ I feel like I haven’t blogged properly myself, beyond just hosting the fiesta. Hopefully with Thanksgiving and Christmas coming, I’ll be forced to do something, lol. I told my daughter she has no choice but stay Mom’s baby forever. She happens to be the youngest grandkid, too, on both sides of the family, so everybody tends to think of her as the baby, anyway πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

  16. Maggie says:

    Thanks for letting me co-host last week! It was definitely fun. I won’t be able to contribute to the party this Fiesta Friday but I hope to have something next week πŸ™‚ So far, though all the contributions look amazing! I want to eat that cranberry walnut chicken salad! Sounds so yum πŸ™‚

    Angie I didn’t get a post from Fiesta Friday either this weekend :'(

    • Angie says:

      Aaw…we thank YOU, Maggie, for cohosting! And we’re happy whenever you can join us. You can still view and comment even if you don’t bring anything πŸ˜„ I think I had some kind of a problem with a plugin, but hopefully it’s been resolved. If it continues next week, pls let me know.

  17. Maggie says:

    Oh, and I loved the Little House on the Prairie – I think I preferred the books to the show, though. Your canning looks so beautiful πŸ™‚ You should share a recipe and share with us your tips on the almost lost art of canning and preserving. πŸ™‚

  18. petra08 says:

    I always find there is something very soothing about canning and preserving. I love to make jam but sadly I almost never eat it so I stopped. Now I mainly pickle and make hot sauce with the exception of cranberry jam for Christmas!
    I like the way you do it, in style, it looks lovely and with photos good enough to eat! I need a new approach! πŸ™‚ x
    ps my main memory of the Little House on the Prairie is that my friends mum watched it with us and each episode always made her cry, it was very sweet πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      I don’t can that much actually. And I just do it for fun πŸ˜‚ I do mostly pickles myself, and a few special things that you can’t easily get from the stores, like tomato jam. It’s just a way for me to use up what I plant πŸ˜„ LHOTP seems to hold special memories for a lot of people, especially girls πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

      • petra08 says:

        hi Angie
        A great way to do it! I agree LHOTP brings out the memories! What an impact a TV program can have. πŸ™‚ x

  19. curryandvanilla says:

    Thank you so much for the feature!!! You made my day πŸ™‚ Used to love watching Little House on the Prairies on the tube!!! All the dishes featured are yumm, especially the turmeric rolls… love cinnamon rolls forever and with turmeric… healthy too!!!

    • Angie says:

      So glad to hear it, Vanitha! I’ve always been intrigued by any baked goods that are eggless. I haven’t tried it but maybe when my BIL comes to visit, I will. He’s allergic to eggs. All LHOTP fans unite!! lol πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚

Talk to me, people!
