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.
Features from last week’s party are:
“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
“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
“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
“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
“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
