While shocking images coming out of DC were being broadcast all over cable networks, I was quietly busy in the kitchen trying out recipes from our Fiesta Friday friends. And for that, I was immensely thankful.
Nothing eases my mind quite like baking.
The Sweet Potato Scones above were inspired by Jess’s Sweet Potato Biscuits.
As soon as they came out of the oven, without prompt, the husband walked away from the TV, and the kids sauntered down to the kitchen. We made coffee and tea and sat down for a post-lunch snack.
Good food never fails to cure whatever ails you.
It’s Features Time
“Salmon is a delicious fish and so perfect paired with Asian flavors. I would love a fork and just tuck in!” — Petra
“Great! I’m in need of more fish as well as air-fryer recipes. And this one answers both needs!” — Angie
“This is my kind of food! I love slow cooking and this appeals to my every foodie sense, I can’t wait to make it!” — Petra
“Ditto, Petra! This will be dinner tomorrow!” — Angie
“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade… aaand… Lemoni Patatas! Swimming in a little bit of lemon glut at the moment, courtesy of my relatives in California, so this recipe comes in handy.” — Angie
“Yet another use for my lemon glut. Blueberries and lemons go hand in hand, like a horse and carriage… no, more like peaches and cream, or macaroni and cheese. Right?!” — Angie

You’re so right, Angie – the kitchen is so often our safe place to retreat to, and do something positive that we can share.
This week’s recipes look amazing. It has been a hard few days, and I look forward to some quality time this weekend in the kitchen, with inspiration from Fiesta Friday – Happy weekend, All!

Angie and Petra, thank you so much for featuring my Hoisin Salmon recipe! I appreciate the kind words, too.

It’s funny how we can still bake and cook even we are tired. I made the Cheesesteak Tortilla Sandwich right after work – video, too. The kitchen is our happy place. Baking and cooking is our stress relievers. Happy Fiesta Friday, Angie. I am happy to be co-hosting this week. Have a wonderful weekend.?

Beautiful features Angie! I have been too disturbed to cook living in the DC area. I hope I can overcome the disappointment and focus on the beauty of creating good food very soon 🙂
GREAT feature choices and once again another GREAT party FULL of inspiring projects and recipes – thanks for hosting! I brought HOT HONEY LIME CHICKEN, CHICKEN PEANUT STEW and ITALIAN WEDDING CASSEROLE. Have a WONDERFUL week.
The scones look great Angie 🙂
Thank you so much for featuring me Angie! It was actually a big surprise and a lovely one. I haven’t been doing much posting in the last few weeks. This recipe was a winner at our house and I hope you enjoyed it.
