Hello, hello, good Fiesta Friday Friends! Or should I say hola, hola! It’s a fiesta, after all. Makes me want to switch to Español. Except I’m very bad with Español. Even after taking two semesters of it in college, and earning As. But you know how it is with a language. If you don’t use it, you lose it.
Que quiere hablar Español conmigo? ¿Alguien aquí hablan Español? I just totally used google translate for that. Not even watching Telemundo helps me improve my Español, sigh…
Okay, that’s all the chit-chat you’re getting from me today. Besides, you didn’t come here for a chit-chat with me. You want to chit-chat with the other guests. And the co-hosts! This week they are Jhuls @The Not So Creative Cook and Mila @milkandbun. This is Mila’s first time, so be gentle with her. Don’t want to scare her off. Jhuls, on the other hand, you can just go wild on her! She can take it! 😀
A little housekeeping note, Fiesta Friday will now run from Friday at 8:00 am EST to 8:00 pm EST the following Tuesday. This will allow my co-hosts and me extra time to prepare for the next fiesta.
I don’t anticipate there will be a problem with this, since we hardly ever receive new entries beyond Tuesday. Plus, this is a recurring party. If you can’t make it in time one week, there’s always the following week.
It’s now time to look at these outstanding posts from last week’s party, selected by Caroline and Elaine and myself:
Savory Tomato and Rice Crepes from Indu @Indu’s International Kitchen
“These look like lace doilies rather than tasty pancakes, they are so pretty, and sound so tasty. I’ll be making these for sure :)” — Elaine
“I am always a fan of pancakes, but Indu’s instant tomato dosas sound both so easy and delicious. I definitely want to try these (in fact, I might just make some for lunch…)” — Caroline
Raspberry Charlotte from Lili @Lili’s Cakes
“Lili’s raspberry charlotte is a work of art! I think it would take me a lot of practice to aspire to such a perfect-looking outer sponge, and the filling sounds such a lovely mix of creaminess and freshness from the raspberries. Raspberries are a favorite for me anyway, but this looks and sounds so great I might even get over the scariness of making it.” — Caroline
“I have a raspberry charlotte post languishing in my draft! It wasn’t published because I wasn’t satisfied with the way it turned out. I only give you the best, my friends! 🙂 I was most grateful to see this post from Lili. I shall attempt one more time, following her thorough step-by-step instructions. I only hope mine will turn out as beautiful as hers!” — Angie
GF Experimental from Nell @I Need A Feed.
“This is such a useful and helpful post for those following a GF lifestyle, or those who want to learn how to bake GF treats! There’s so much to learn from Nell’s experiments. And what about that cake? I found myself mesmerized by it. There’s something so decidedly bold and art deco about it. A piece of modern art!” — Angie
Royal Chocolate Biscuit Cake from Chef Amy @Come Cook With Me
“A chocolate cake with digestives in it! That’s a first for me, but then I know virtually nothing about digestives, having only bought them once at Marks & Spencers as a gag gift, selected for its highly creative name. We ended up consuming them en route to France. Not bad, not bad at all! Never would have thought to mix them in a cake! What a creative idea! That cake looks like a million bucks, Amy! Beyootiful!” — Angie
