So, we had another nor’easter. Two days into spring, exactly. Don’t you feel sorry for me?
We had more days of school closing. At this rate, we’d probably be in school until the end of June! I’m definitely feeling sorry for myself now. And for my daffodils! They were up and blooming, but now are buried deep in the snow.
It’s not without any benefits, however, these snow days.
I had so much free time at home with nothing else to do except watch the husband shovel the snow that I ended up cooking and baking the whole entire content of my fridge and pantry! Well, maybe not everything, but I was definitely a maniac!
And as soon as school ends today, it’ll be Spring Break. That means I should have enough time to write the recipes. The operative word there is “should.” I’ll do my best!
Favorite recipes from last week’s fiesta:
Lemon Ricotta Pancakes from Anjana @ Happy and Harried
“I loooove ricotta and love using ricotta when baking. These pancakes with all their lemon flavor have me yearning for Spring!” — Alex
Easter Bunny Brioche Buns from Ginger @ Ginger and Bread
“How adorable are these! Every bunny (sorry :P) needs these for Easter breakfast. I’m guessing they taste pretty amazing too!” — Laurena
McMullan’s Irish Nachos from Mollie @ Frugal HausFrau
“What!? Nachos made with ‘homemade’ potato chips! then loaded up with all kinds of goodies! Oh yes, I’m there! Don’t you just want to pick these right out of that skillet! ?” — Laurena
Vanilla and Mocha Cookie Sandwiches from Jess @ Cooking Is My Sport
“I love that Jess made a homemade version of a very popular store-bought cookie, and she made them look and sound delicious! Her mocha flavor is inventive and she has inspired me to make my own sandwich cookies :D” — Alex

Great selection. Those ricotta pancakes are making me drool. ?
Me, too! Good thing I always have ricotta around ?
I took almost an identical photo here of the daffodils!
Fantastic features, am ready to party! Thanks for having us all again!
Happy Weekend 🙂 x
You did?! That’s great ? We do seem to be attracted to similar things. Thanks for cohosting! ??
We had snow in the UK last week too! How weird and unexpected. It’s all gone now and I am looking forward to warmer weather. I am sure you’ll soon have it too:) Have a nice weekend!
Weather pattern does seem to get stranger and more extreme every year. I think it’s time we buy a snow blower. When we moved here our real estate agent told us it hardly ever snowed. Apparently this has turned out into a lie. By now ?
OMG another week has passed and I didn’t notice … We did have snow, which was great, but now I am ready for Spring. Thank you for the feature – I can’t wait to bake another batch of those for Easter Sunday’s big egg hunt brunch 🙂
Have a great Fiesta Friday!
I want to make those bunnies! Spring break is coming up so I’ll have time, hurray! I’m so ready for spring myself! ?
Have fun – we’re having friends over so it will be proper bunny manic 😉
Poor daffodils!! Oh well, what can we do about Mother Nature???♀️ I’ll just enjoy the features and the foods this week! ? Happy FF, Angie!?
She’s very fickle, that’s for sure ? I hope this was the last of the snow, though. I’m so over it! I think I saw your new blog up, it looks nice! Congratulations and good luck!
Thank you, Angie! Thank goodness it’s done!? Happy Fiesta Friday and have a wonderful weekend!?
I know, it’s crazy! Have a nice weekend! Loving the features this week! 😀
Sure is! Hopefully it’ll start to warm up soon. I’m already thinking of the beach! ? I think I need to wait a while longer. Have a great weekend, Antonia! ?

My daffodils seemed to have defied the snow…love their spirit 🙂 Looking forward to cohosting !
I need to take a page out of their book! Brave little daffodils! Thanks so much for cohosting, Zeba!??
Those poor little daffs. I feel for you. Come and live in Oz, Angie, not a snowflake in sight.
What is it now over there? End of summer, 100 degrees? That’s almost as bad ? Or maybe it’s balmy early fall. In which case maybe I’ll move there ?
Oh gosh, so surprised to see my Irish Nachos up there! What a bunch of great pics, I want to make those pancakes ASAP! I think they put mine to shame!
We still have plenty of snow here in MN and we had a bit more on the first day of spring, but you guys have gotten hit so much the last couple of years! I hate see all the kiddos bundled up on Easter for the egg hunts.
But c’mon, the Irish nachos! Who would say no to them?! Not me!
It’s too early to know for sure, but they’re saying it’ll rain on Easter!! That’s almost worse than snow. I’m hoping they’re wrong. My kids are too old now for Easter egg hunt but my neighbor’s (she’s like a big sister to me) grandkids usually come to our yard, too, so I’m obliged to hide a few eggs. I bought giant eggs with more eggs inside for them to find! Let’s hope Mother Nature will cooperate, please…
Oh Angie, there were so good! It’s actually taken a lot of will power to NOT make them again, lol!! But now I’m on to brunchy stuff for Easter!! 🙂

Mollie those nachos are so good! 😀 I’m making them again if you’re not! 😛
Okay, looks like I’ll have to make them, too ?
lol!! Thanks so much! 🙂

It’s about to snow here too 🙁 So done with it, lol. Many thanks for hosting the party. Have a great weekend!
You have my sympathy, Jas ? But hey, maybe you can go out there and build a snowman ? Thanks for coming to the party!
Jas @All that's Jas says
appreciate the Like at food for fun – thank you 🙂 Fun site you have here! And about that snow – I get you. Am in Minnesota and we never got as far as your daffodils. Still frozen ground here. What a crazy shot – daffodils in the snow!
No problem, I love food and food pictures ? I had to dig the daffodils out, btw. Must have been at least 6 inches under ?
Well, I am hoping the winter dump of snowish sort of things will be over, now. Fingers crossed, at any rate!
I hope so, too! Snow is practically gone were I am, except on my deck! Tomorrow is supposed to be in the 60s, but just for one day. Maybe I should go to the beach 😀 Hey, maybe if you’re still stuck indoors, you can do a baking marathon like I did. I’m posting what I made last week. Like right this minute!
