    • Angie says:

      Thanks for participating, Elaine! Guess what?! Found and bought freeze dried pineapple. At Target! Will try your recipes since they sound so yummy. Wish we could let taste be the deciding factor. Maybe we’ll have to incorporate that next time, but I would need helpers to do it. Can’t possibly cook all the recipes on my own! ?

  3. Congratulations to all the winners!? They all look so delicious!?
    Please do another challenge sometime! Maybe once your hair and nails have grown back from all the pulling and biting?lol. I had so much fun being challenged to get creative in the kitchen! (I think all of us did?)

  4. Wow great picks and Congratulations to the winners. Delicious choices!!

    • Angie says:

      So glad you approved, Suzanne! Thanks for participating. I love your smoothie and in a real life event, it’d prob win based on taste. Too bad we can’t taste, huh? ?

  5. Congratulations to everyone who entered and to this year’s winners! What inventive, beautiful dishes! I know you had your hands full trying to pick from such a talented pool.

      It was very, very hard!! I don’t think I’ve ever been in such a state of agony before. I must have kept changing my mind a thousand times! Everything looks so delicious! Thanks for participating! I hope you had fun!

    Angie,
    Wow! For once I am at a loss for words. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! And do thank your smart daughter on my behalf too.
    My husband and I were to leave for Cancun that week and I said to him “I have to do this challenge before we leave” so you can see how much fun I had with the challenge.
    Once we were back, I really enjoyed visiting the other blogs with their amazing entries. It was fascinating to see how many different ways greens and pineapple can be used in a recipe. I am always impressed by the pool of talented bloggers at Fiesta Friday and have bookmarked quite a few recipes to try.
    Thanks again! You have made my day!!!!!!

    • Angie says:

      Congratulations, Sandhya! I’m so thrilled to have made your day! Your Spa Salad is just simply stunning. I can tell you took your time composing it, including carving the heart-shaped apple pieces. And the techniques used (massaging, tempering, etc.) are inspirational and eye-opening. My daughter said you’re welcome! She was happy that your entry won ? I’ll be talking to you again via email.

    Hey Angie! Well thanks a million for this!! I feel so very honoured to have won second prize among all of these beautiful entries! Honestly it was so much fun watching what everyone came up with. And you deserve a prize for all of your time and energy putting together this challenge and then the huge task of scoring all the recipes! Bravo to you, and congratulations to all the winners! 😀

    • Angie says:

      Congratulations, Julianna! All your recipes are exceptional! I’m so pleased you placed in the top three ?? Seriously it was a lot of fun for me, too. Except for the scoring part ? I had so much fun I forgot to share my own recipes! ?

  11. Maggie says:

    Absolutely no hate from me, Angie!! Well done, everyone! Wonderful recipes and presentation for sure!

    It was so fun doing this challenge. Can’t wait for the next!

  12. H.A.G. says:

    Congrats to the winners- this was such a fun exercise in creativity! Loved it- thanks for the fun of it!

  13. Wonderful picks and congrats to the winners. Looking forward to participating in many more challenges 🙂

  14. Wow! Congratulations to the winners!

  15. Oh my gosh, thanks Angie! I can’t believe I made the top three – don’t get me wrong, I loved the Pineapple Fried Rice but I was just awed by all the creativity I saw from everyone. Every time I saw a new link I was like “Why didn’t I think of that?” lol!!

    It was so fun to see all these amazing bloggers step up to this challenge – the challenge that seemed odd at first but won me over and really changed the way I think about food! Do it again, once you recover! Happy Valentine’s Day!!

    • Angie says:

      You won for a number of reasons. Not least of all would be the carving of the pineapple to make into a boat! That must have taken you some time to do! And your technique is sound, i.e. wringing out the kale and not overcrowding the pan (both I neglected to do when I made mine and that’s why my fried rice wasn’t the best). So, congratulations, Mollie! It’s well deserved ?? I’m very pleased with the results. Send me your address, please. It may a while before you get your first magazine, though. Usually 6-8 weeks.

  16. Antonia says:

    Congratulations to all of the winners! Everything looks delicious and I love all of the ideas. Thank you Angie for coming up with this idea, and going through the painstaking process of selecting winners. I am looking forward to your next challenge!

  17. Jhuls says:

    ?Wow! Angie, thank you so much! With all the lovely entries, I didn’t expect that I’ll make it this far. Such an honor to belong to the honorable mention. I am doing my happy dance?? I am beyond delighted that you liked what I shared – I really had fun doing this for the challenge. Thank you for all your efforts (and your daughter as well) – the sleepless nights and all… just for this final exam of yours?
    Congrats to everyone – awesome job!???

    • Angie says:

      It was a successful recipe, Jhuls! ?? Your use of the greens in the bread dough is a great one. As a matter of fact that was the first thing I did when I was experimenting. So you see, great minds think alike ? Thanks for participating! I’m glad you had fun! ?

  18. Monika says:

    Congratulations to all the winners! I imagine it was a daunting task to select the winners having so many recipes to choose from. Well done to everyone!
