Fiesta Friday Badge Button I party @

Oh Em Gee!! Can it get any colder than this?! I don’t know how much longer I can take this. I swear I’m about to lose my toes or fingers, they’re completely frostbitten! Who wants to move with me to Hawaii or the Bahamas?

Or maybe just crash Tina’s vacation spot? That lucky girl! She’s in Colombia right now, from where, without even the slightest of guilt, she’s reported that it’s been warm and sunny

To “reward” her, I made her your co-host this week! πŸ˜€

Along with Juju…who, frankly, doesn’t deserve the extra work of a co-host. Sorry, Juju, but you know, we all look up to you. You are, after all, Fiesta Friday’s very own cooking aunt. πŸ˜€

Anyway, we are just so lucky to have both Tina @Mademoiselle Gourmande and Juju @cookingwithauntjuju as our co-hosts this week. As lucky as we were last week to have Sue and Suzanne, who had to sift through 114 entries! Can we all show our appreciation by giving them {virtual} hugs and kisses for their hard work? 😘😘

Before we party with Tina and Juju, let’s take a look at these posts that we fell in love with, from last week’s fiesta:

Russian red blini (pancakes) from Mila @milkandbun.

“Mila’s Red Blini Pancakes for Malenitsa (Butter Week or Pancake Week — also known as the week before we give stuff up for Lent in our household). The recipe was very simple and used cooked beets rather than food colouring, which is always good. The photos and styling of the pancakes were elegant and gorgeous. She captured such a beautiful deep pink colour, and right in time also for Valentine’s Day. The detail of the teeny heart pancake also won me over.” — Sue

“Aren’t these pancakes just so stunning? Look at that color! And how adorable is that little heart? I think we should all print that photo and frame it! Instant art for your wall or desk! Nice job, Mila!” — Angie

Small milk and chocolate buns from Margy @La Petite Casserole

“Margy’s milk and chocolate buns are reminiscent of pain au chocolat and look so comforting and delicious. I think her photo is beautiful and although the recipe is simple, the resulting bread is absolutely gorgeous.” — Suzanne

“I love these buns for precisely the same reason mentioned by Suzanne. Simple and easy recipe that gives the best result! It’s like getting the most bang from your buck. Who wouldn’t love that? These look so soft, fluffy and all-around yummy!” — Angie


Pork Chops with Sweet and Sour Glaze from Loretta @Safari Of The Mind.

“I’m the first to admit I can’t cook pork chops! They always end up dry, dry, dry! My solution has always been to either drown them in gravy or stuff them with some kind of fattening and buttery stuff. In other words, make them unhealthy. For that reason, I rarely cook pork chops. But look at these! They certainly look far from being dry. And I love the sound of that glaze! The garlic smashed potatoes don’t hurt either. What a wonderful meal, Loretta!” — Angie

Chocolate Filled Vodka Chili Chocolates from Julianna @Foodie On Board

“What the?! Have you seen these?! Now this is what I call outrageousness! Not just outrage, but outrageousness! And…I like it!! I want to try one of these so bad! Though I’m pretty sure I’d have smoke coming out of my ears. But it’d be so totally worth it! Julianna, hello…you selling and shipping these or what? Can I pre-order?” — Angie

Mysore Masala Dosa from Aruna @Γ£hΓ£ram

“Okay, how many of you have been wanting to learn how to make dosa? I’m raising my hand! I have urad dal in my pantry to prove it. As to how long they’ve been in there I can’t tell. All I know is that one day I went into this small unassuming Indian cafe and saw this man cooking a huge crepe, rolled it and gave it to this little girl. That crepe was almost as tall as the girl, no kidding! So, of course, when it was my turn, I ordered the very same thing! A few questions later, I came out of the cafe with the crepe and urad dal. The cafe also conveniently sold grocery items. Apparently though, I didn’t ask enough questions ‘coz I had no idea how to make the dosa. Until now, with this step-by-step detailed instructions from Aruna. Now all I need is a tava.” — Angie
