Happy Fiesta Friday!
Fiesta Friday, hosted by the lovely Angie over at the Novice Gardener, is my favorite online party. Plus, Angie is truly one of the sweetest people I have met in the blogging community.
This week, I’m especially excited because I’m co-hosting the party with Mr. Fitz! I’ll be the one with red quinoa crab cakes. 🙂
So, what is Fiesta Friday?
Fiesta Friday is an online party, where many bloggers share posts in a link up. We bring appetizers, desserts, photographs, memories, flowers, etc. There is truly something for everyone at this party. We then go around and comment, meet and greet, etc. It’s a good time, and how I met some of my first blogging friends.
This week as a co-host, I’ll be commenting as an official FF rep, and helping to pick out the features for next week. That’s right, your post can be FEATURED in the following Fiesta Friday post.
How do I join?
It’s simple to join. Write a Fiesta Friday post about your weekend, your week, etc. It can be about anything that you want to bring to the party: food, decorations, stories, photographs, etc. Then, link your post up using the link to the right. (There are a few guidelines you must follow to be featured.)
What are you bringing to the party?
As I rang in the new year this week, I began reminiscing on 2015. I shared my Top Posts of 2015 earlier to day. So, for Fiesta Friday, I am bringing the first dish I made for my blog: NerdSteak’s Red Quinoa Crab Cakes.
This dish is not only delicious, but it comes with a quick little story too!
What’s the story?
When I decided to start a blog, I wasn’t much of a cook. (And, honestly, mom still helps out with many of the recipes on this blog.) However, I had been embracing a world of dietary restrictions with celiac disease and food allergies, so I had plenty to share.
My mom went away for a weekend. I decided to surprise her with some crab cakes, and then blog about it of course! However, I had never cooked any form of seafood. Plus, we had recently moved, so my kitchen was located in the basement with limited air circulation. (We now have a vent down there.)
I asked NerdSteak about an egg-substitute for his crab cake recipe, and began cooking. Despite my arrangement of fans to the small basement window, the alarm went off almost instantaneously as I began frying the crab cakes!
Rather than coming home to a relaxing dinner, my mom received a panicked phone call asking her for the alarm code. And, then a second one after she gave me the wrong code. Did I mention that we had just moved?
Nonetheless, at the end of the night we both had the opportunity to enjoy this dish, and I hope you do too!
Most importantly, how do I recreate this dish?
