Hi, guys! Happy Friday to all and Happy early Mother’s Day to all moms!
Just a quick note from me this morning about Pinterest as a follow-up from last week’s discussion.
FF66 co-host Anna @Anna International had suggested that we start a Pinterest group board. Which is an excellent idea since many of my repins have come from the couple of group boards that I’ve joined. If I had thought about it before, I certainly didn’t act on it. So, thanks, Anna, for giving me the push!
So, without further ado, I’m announcing the creation of Fiesta Friday Blog Party Group Board on Pinterest.
Check out the rules & guidelines on how to join and start pinning on the board.
Now we party! Caroline @Caroline’s Cooking and Jess @Cooking Is My Sport are your co-hosts this week. Please link your posts to FiestaFriday.net as well as your co-hosts’ blogs.
Features from last week’s party are:
Baked Apple Pie Chips from Richa @myfoodstory
“I said it when I first saw this and I’ll say it again… You cannot be serious, Richa!! You need to trademark this or else some company is going to steal the idea! Brilliant! Everybody, let’s start making this!” — Angie
Simple Spelt Scones from Lili @lili’s cakes.
“My absolute favorite [post] was ‘Simple Spelt Scones: An Illustrated Story’ at Lili’sCakes. She brought a simple but delicious recipe to life with a charmingly illustrated little story about the villages of Boddly and Scoddly, and I was absolutely enchanted. Now, I’m not sure if Lili is aware of the Devon vs Cornwall cream tea debate – who started it first, who does it best, jam or cream on top (for those interested, in Cornwall it’s jam then cream, in Devon, cream then jam!) but her story beautifully captured the ridiculousness of arguing over something that is so utterly delicious, however you make and serve it!” — Anna
“A wonderful post that only Lili can bring to you! I expect nothing less from her!” — Angie
Raspberry Tart from Linda @La Petite Paniere.
“I loved the tarte aux framboises [from Linda]. Her beautiful styling coupled with an absolutely flawless-looking tart was brilliant, and I loved the idea of adding a lemony tang to the crust, too, to balance the sweetness of the crème patissiere. Please send one now, Linda!” — Anna
“What a gorgeous tart! I have to say I’m very partial to raspberries. Why else would I search high and low to find thornless raspberry plants for my garden? Except, of course, I planted them in the shade. Why else would I call myself TheNoviceGardener? But never fear, I had a guy cut down the offending trees and now my raspberries are in the sun, yay! Which means I’ll finally get some fruits. Which means I’ll finally can make this Tarte aux Framboise with fruits from my garden, double yay!! Thanks for the wonderful recipe, Linda!” — Angie
Spruce Tip Gravlax from Hilda @Along The Grapevine
“First of all, it’s home-cured gravlax. Then it’s not just any home-cured gravlax. It’s gravlax cured in spruce tip salt and sugar, with the spruce tips harvested from her property! Hilda is a master of creating such unique foods and flavors. I constantly learn from her. And how exciting it was to find out I have a couple of spruce trees in my own backyard! And they’re in that perfect stage of sporting those light green soft tips at the moment. Perfect timing, Hilda! Thank you so much! Will collect!” — Angie
Cheesy Okra Fritters from Priyanka @Giggling Spoons.
“This is such a unique and clever recipe for okras. There’s no way you’ll get any slimy okra this way. Plus filling the okras with grated cheese is just pure genius! All of a sudden, I’m hungry for okras!” — Angie

I can’t believe I actually got featured 🙂 🙂 This made my day! Thank you Angie and Anna! And congratulations to all the other blogs too. That’s all for now – those cheesy okra fritters are calling me 😛
Did you trademark the recipe yet? 😀 That’s such a great idea! Perfect for those who love the pie crust, which frankly is the best part! 😀
Hahaha if you are serious about this can I really trademark the recipe and how? 😀
Sadly I’m not a lawyer, lol! Go get one! Maybe you can sell your chips! 😀
Yay, the party is soon to begin, looking forward to seeing what everyone brings. And great you have a group pinterest board – I’ll happily contribute (when I remember – I can be a bit rubbish!).
Would you like to join the board? I think we’re already following each other. I’ll send you an invite!
Got it, and accepted! Here’s to having anther great place to go for inspiration 🙂
Giramuk's Kitchen says
The Pinterest group board idea is fantastic Angie!! 🙂 Can’t wait to check it out!
Would you like to join? I’m sending you an invite! 🙂
Giramuk's Kitchen says
absolutely!! 😀 I sent you an email too! Thank you so much Angie!
Yayyyy Angie! Our own Pinterest board!!! Awesome! Great job! Now we can have all our favorite recipes from FF in one place on Pinterest! Happy Mother’s Day to you and all the wonderful mothers here!
Are we following each other yet? I’ll send you an invite, ok? 🙂
Can you send me an invite to the Pinterest board too Angie??
We first have to be following each other. Are we? I was trying to find you on Pinterest. Can you send me your Pinterest username?
Got the invite Angie and accepted it!
Then start pinning, Su! And re-pinning friends’ pins, too, please! 7 pins per week for now. We don’t want our board to become spammy 😀
Yay! Lovely features! Again, congrats to Anna for doing a great job and congrats to the features. Great idea on the Pinterest board, too. Happy FF, Angie!! 🙂
I’m sending you an invite, Jhuls!
Yeeeesss! Got it, Angie. It’s easy to find recipes from FF now. Thank goodness – another long list. 😀
But we can also pin from other blogs and websites, Jhuls, not just FF. I love to see interesting pins and beautiful recipes!
Ok ok! Will do. 😉

Happy FF and Mother’s Day weekend Angie! A FF Pinterest board is a great idea and will be gorgeous! I pinned some garden shots yesterday and for the first time I noted it said my pictures were pinned by “pinner”….I could only get a caption for them under a comment line. This happened when I pinned from my photo bank. When I pin from wordpress I can add a caption before the photo is pinned. Thought I would share this observation. This seems to have been happening only since Pinterest changed their system a few months back. My ten cents!
Yes, it’s best to pin from your posts directly. I think we’re already following each other, aren’t we? If not we have to correct that, then I’ll be able to send you an invite 🙂
Happy FF and thank you Anna and Angie!!! I love all the features here, such a great variety of edibles! Totally surprised the simple spelt scones are featured but glad you liked the story and very happy! I did not know about the Devon and Cornwall scones debate Anna! Fascinating and hilarious! Real life can be quite nutty… will be reading up on that. 🙂
I really like the Pinterest board idea too and would love to take part! 🙂
Loved the story and illustration, of course! Sending you an invite to the group board!
Thanks Angie! I’ve received the invite.. And I’m very honoured to featured… think I forgot to say that earlier! 🙂
It was implied, and we got it! 🙂
Jim in IA says
Fixing delicious and attractive food is a creative challenge. Most people have the usual challenges to overcome. That might be part of the fun. One person in particular has some especially unique challenges. That person is the chef at the south pole station Concordia. The station is going into the winter months. There are 13 permanent residents in the dark until 9 months from now. The chef, Luca Ficara, from Sicily, is in charge of feeding them. Here is a blog post by Luca for your enjoyment.
Wow, 9 months in the dark! Not sure how I would survive in that condition. I wonder which one is more challenging. That or summer in Alaska where it never gets dark. An eye-opener, Jim! Thanks for sharing 🙂
Elaine @ foodbod says
Where did my comment go???? Oh well, as I was saying, happy Fiesta Friday superstar xx love the Pinterest board idea x
Still having comment problem, Elaine? Actually I was going thru the same thing on another blog. It has something to do with Jetpack, but I don’t want to get rid of it. Kinda necessary. Sorry, darlin, just try try again! 🙂
Elaine @ foodbod says
No problem xxxx

What a great idea to have a group pin board! I’m signing up! Happy FF and hope you have a beautiful weekend 🙂
You, too, Sarah! And let’s start repinning each other’s pins! 🙂
Michelle @ Giraffes Can Bake says
Love the pinterest board idea, it’s something I was gonna suggest but I guess I forgot! Gonna go take a look right now! Happy FF!
It’s the right time to do now that I feel comfortable enough on Pinterest. Any sooner and I might not have known what to do, haha… Happy FF!
What a great party, Angie, as always! Great idea to add the pinterest board, it’s not a tool I am using very well so it’s always good to see what others are up to 😉
The features are absolutely stunning and make me feel rather silly for missing the whole party!
But you’re here now, that’s the important thing! I want to see everybody’s viewership going up, GInger. That would make me happy. Hopefully the Pinterest board would help 🙂
Thanks so much Angie for your kind words and for featuring my recipe. Such a lovely surprise for me. I look forward as always to seeing what everyone is up to this week.
My pleasure, Hilda! Btw, are the tips from the dwarf Alberta spruce also edible? I’m assuming they are. Same lemony taste! Starting to really grow on me! 🙂
what a great idea, i confess i have had a fiesta friday pinterest board since you started, squirrelling away all those marvellous recipes since time began lol, xx
You have? Well now there’s another one for you. Will send you an invite if you’d like to join!
I’d love to join! And feel free to take a peek at mine I must have gotten most weeks hehe
Just sent you the invite!
thank you got it yaya!
Good for you! Nice, CLEAN pins only, please! 😀
So happy to be here! Long time haven’t linked anything.. But here I am! 😀 Absolutely love those pie chips-yummy!
I’m not using pin very often, but it’s great idea, Angie! Will check it asap! 🙂
Wishing a lovey weekend and tasty dishes to all! <3
She should mass produce and package to sell, don’t you think? I’d buy 2 bags! To start! 😀 I will send you an invite, just tell me when! 🙂
Thank you so so much Anna and Angie, you made my day and I’m so honored to be featured in Fiesta Friday. Congratulations to all the winners and have a great weekend. Happy Fiesta Friday xoxo
You’re welcome, Linda! Wonderful recipe! Btw, are you on Pinterest?
Yes, I have an account but I never really used it
Pinterest is pretty fun and drives quite a bit of traffic to my blog TheNoviceGardener. If you start following me, I can send you the invite to join the group board.
Happy Fiesta Friday again everyone, even though it is Saturday now! 🙁 But hey, it’s the weekend, and that’s plenty of reason to celebrate! My ‘recipe’ this week could hardly be called a genuine recipe, it’s so simple, but hopefully the story behind it makes up for it! And also there are pretty photos of Tuscan landscapes, which always helps!
Thank you all for having me as co-host last week, I absolutely loved it, and choosing features was so tough, I had so many favourites!! x
We love having you! One of the main reasons I have co-hosts is for the purpose of selecting features! It remains the hardest job for me! So many outstanding posts to choose from! 🙂
Hi Angie – I have not done much with Pinterest but I am interested in joining your new group. Over 1/3 of my views are from pins (probably more) and I have no idea how it happened. So, send me an invite and I will see where it goes from there. This is a busy time with the weather so nice – hard to get on the computer except for rainy days like today 🙂
Same here, though not quite 1/3 but a good amount. What is your Pinterest user name? I think I can only send you an invite if you’re following me on Pinterest.
I don’t think I am following anyone but it seems like a good idea. User name? You can see how little I know… I will obviously have to look into this further and get back to you ?
Sadhna Grover says
Thanks for hosting again.
You’re welcome, Sadhna!
Hi Angie, I am following you now on both the FF board and your personal one. My username is Suchitra
I sent you an invite yesterday, Su! You’ll have to accept the invitation before being added to the board, okay?
Sushma Balasubramanian says
