I’m off for two days, guys!
Yesterday I was off, and today I am off again. And with Saturday and Sunday coming up, that’s a whole 4 days of free time.
I’m dragging the husband later today to shop for a new couch. Our old one has gone to the dogs. Literally. Skye pretty much thinks it’s 100% hers.
Shopping with the husband usually involves eating out, though. That’s the only bribe he’d take. So I might as well forget about cooking today.
Good thing I already made a few things yesterday. Pumpkin is the word we’re feeling… ??? (I’m watching Grease on TV right now. My all-time favorite movie ever, all-time!)
Okie dokie, guys, I’ll be sharing the pumpkin-ey recipes as soon as I find the time and patience to sit, and write, and edit, and edit some more…
Chocolate Vanilla Cream Biscuits from Cooking From My Heart
“What, homemade Oreos! The chocolate cookies look so crispy, and that vanilla cream! My kids would go crazy for these!” — Antonia
Sourdough Chocolate Cake with Espresso Icing from cookingwithauntjuju.com
“I never knew sourdough can be used in cakes, too. I am always in for anything chocolate cake and espresso. This cake is a sure winner for me.” — Jhuls
Christmas Pancakes from Krispy Kadhai
“Is there anything cuter than these pancakes? Simple pancakes turned into something that looks so festive, pretty and delicious! That is so creative!” — Jhuls
Apple Streusel Muffins from Ai Made It
“I love the combination of warm spices and apples in these muffins, and then they are topped with that yummy streusel! I can just imagine eating one of these warm out of the oven on a cool morning! These are the perfect fall muffins!” — Antonia

enjoy your days off and thanks for hosting
Thanks, Patrick! Enjoy the fiesta!
Lucky girl Angie…:) I wish for a long weekend holiday too.. but all I am stuck with is boxes and tons of boxes to pack and move. But I am also excited to move into my new house next weekend 🙂
Btw.. thanks for letting me co-host this week. Looking forward to all the goodness.
Thanks for co-hosting, Trupti!?
Thank you Jhuls.. pleasure!
Didn’t realize you’re in the process of moving! Lots of work but at the same time, so exciting!! Keep us updated, please. I hope cohosting the Fiesta is not going to get in the way of your packing. Wish I could help; if only we lived closer to each other ?
Yes we are so excited for the new house but the process of packing and moving is tiring. FF will be my stress buster and breaks from all of it. 🙂 thank you for offering Angie. I hope you enjoy the rest of your long weekend.
Wow! Four days off!! Good for you, Angie! And so exciting – you’ll get a new couch. Is Skye will be able to chew, er, to sit on that couch?? Enjoy, Angie. Thanks for the party?
Nope! The new couch will be off-limit to Skye! She’s already taken over the old one!

Thanks for hosting! Enjoy your 4 day weekend!
You’re welcome and thanks!
Thanks a bunch for the feature Jhuls and Angie. It’s a great chocolate cake and a good way to use your sourdough starter. Grease is a favorite movie of mine – I enjoy a good love story. The ending is fantastic – I could break out into song and start dancing…
Lol, you should have seen the commotion I started in the house last night. I started belting out (who can resist Grease, seriously) and Skye started howling! Too funny! That chocolate cake is the best use of sourdough starter I’ve ever seen! ??
That is too funny – I can just picture you and Skye “singing”. We had a miniature Schnauzer who would howl when we made certain noises. We had to hit the right key to get her going 🙂
Thanks so much for the feature Angie! 🙂 And yayyy on shopping for the new couch:)
Great recipe, CH! Hope I can find a couch I like. I’m a little bit picky with furniture, gotta be just right ?
Looking forward to seeing what you’ve been making with pumpkin! Happy shopping and enjoy the rest of your long weekend:)
Don’t worry, I’m a sharer not a hoarder. Well, maybe I’m a hoarder when it comes to recipes, but also a sharer. Just can’t sit long enough to blog sometimes. Thanks, I will try to be productive ?
I hope you enjoy the rest of your time off Angie, and get some rest. Good luck on finding the perfect couch! Happy Fiesta Friday!
Thanks, Antonia! I want leather and white, the hubs said good luck with that! Surely there’s got to be a store that sells something like that. Right?!
Enjoy your days off and good luck sofa shopping!
Thanks, Alex! ?
What a range of glorious features to keep you going over the next couple of days! Good luck with the furniture shopping, that’s my husband’s idea of harakiri…
Harakiri, omg ?? Sometimes, though, it doesn’t pay to bring the husband along. He usually looks for a place to sit and then snooze. Annoying!! I need a second opinion! ? Happy FF, Ginger!
Bring a friend is my motto. The downslide of that is that you end up buying far more than you need!
Enjoy your vacation Angie and Happy Fiesta Friday. Congratulations to all those whose lovely recipes are featured here
Thank you – if you have a sourdough starter this is a beautiful way to use it 🙂
Thanks, Swati! I hope you’re enjoying the fiesta ?
Thank you for hosting all this inspiration. Have a lovely week.
My pleasure, Marilyn! Have a wonderful week! ?
Thank you for featuring my Christmas Pancakes. 🙂 🙂 Have a lovely week!
You’re welcome, such a cute idea! ??
Jas @All that's Jas says

My pleasure, Jas! Enjoy the fiesta and gave a great week! ?

I hope you’re having a great long weekend Angie. How’s the couch hunting going – have you found anything to agree on yet!? Funny you’ve just watched Grease – it was on tv here this week too! My son had never seen it… but knew most of the songs!? Thanks for having me co-host this week, hopefully I’ll find lots of pumpkin recipes to play with! 🙂 Happy Fiesta x
After 2 days of looking, we found the one! More like, I finally found the one I can live with ? I have a few pumpkin recipes coming up, if I can get myself to sit long enough in front of a computer. Thanks for cohosting! ??
Life Diet Health says
Woohoo… New couch???best you tell Skye this one is yours! ? Ooo, looking forward to your pumpkin recipes (no pressure!) Hope you enjoyed your four free days! ?
Just posted a “pumpkin” recipe, lol. Don’t worry, real pumpkins will show up soon.
Life Diet Health says
I thought you’d actually put pumpkin in the eggs at first! They’re so cute!
We tried it, but didn’t like it. It was weird. Maybe we put too much ?
Life Diet Health says
Did you really!? I think I might have to experiment for the boys! I’ll get them eating pumpkin one way or another! 😀
I hope you are enjoying your time off! I also took a day off my blog, it was wonderful! We do need time without social media and just relax.
Totally! Quality of life is very important to me ?For me that translates into lots of rest and relaxation and also movie nights with the hubster. Along with nachos and chocolate almonds ?
