November 28, 2008 - Finest Foodies Friday

I hope everyone had an absolutely wonderful Thanksgiving and were surrounded by good food, friends and family. Jenn is away and once again I begged for the chance to be the stand in for The Leftover Queen's Finest Foodies Friday and after almost no hesitation she said she would let me (happy dance!!!). So here we go...

As always here is what the FFF is all about. Finest Foodies Friday! FFF is a weekly Friday post featuring favorites from The Foodie Blogroll! We do this so we can share in the rich diversity of what The Foodie Blogroll has to offer by featuring some of our favorites and yours!

What is the Foodie Blogroll? It is the first and fastest growing free membership blogroll for food bloggers and has become a wonderful community (just over 2700 strong) to share ideas about all things food related.

The only requirement to be featured here on FFF is to be a member of The Foodie Blogroll and be displaying The Foodie Blogroll widget on your blog. If you are not yet a member, but you have a food blog and would like to join, please click here!

If you have a favorite foodblog on The Foodie Blogroll, that you would like to be featured here on FFF, please join Jenn and crew over on The Leftover Queen/Foodie Blogroll Forum, and post your favorite Foodie Blogroll foodblogs here.

With no further ado here are my 5 choices for the week.

They may have been featured before but what do I know. These are just a couple of the blogs I like to visit and enjoy.

Joan Nova of FOODalogue describes her blog as the inevitable collision of her life's passions: food, travel, writing and photography. She says she is a “culinista” (One who obsesses about food...cooks it, eats it, writes about it and photographs it.) Check out Joan's blog. The pictures are beautiful and she if a fellow Floridian as well!

Next up is Jo who's blog The Adventures of Kitchen Girl is truly a delight! And so is she! Jo is a
thirty-something Mother of 3 who loves to cook and take pictures of food. She is always trying something new in the kitchen, and would love for you to come and join her! I love Jo's blog because she cooks like I do and she is also the one of the sweetest people I "know"! Check out her blog and see what I mean!

Then there is my friend Annie who we all know from Cooking with Anne fame. She recently started up a new blog. Anne is a mother of 7 noseminers, (ages 19 years to 2 years ~ 5 girls, 2 boys) and Chief Cook and Bottle Washer (among other titles) of this brood. Egad, can you just imagine? Anyway, as if she didn't have enough going on she recently started a new blog called A Thousand Soups. This blog began at the start of 'soup season' and her fondest wish is that each person who stops there finds the perfect soup for them. What a great theme for a blog. Especially with the cooler weather that we all have now.

Next up is The Recipe Girl. Blogger Lori (a.k.a. RecipeGirl) is located in the beautiful, sunny Southern California city of San Diego. She started this blog just this year as a writing outlet to go with her wonderful recipes and recipe site Each visit will land you a new recipe and a beautiful food picture!

And last but not least is Nikki of CanaryGirl fame. This girl is a hoot. There is not a time that she does not make me chuckle at least a little bit. You can go to her blog and read all about her "early Thanksgiving meal". She is a stay at home mom of 4…2 girls and 2 boys…..Her home is in the Canary Islands, Spain. She describes herself as passionate about cooking, and has fun photographing the results. Visit Nikki for a guaranteed smile on your face!

That’s it for this week! I hope you enjoyed this week’s FFF. Remember, if you would like to see a blog featured on Jenn's site, and who is part of the FBR please visit the forum and nominate them. I NEED NOMINATIONS!!!!!!

Also we all love to know how people came to find our blogs, so please visit all of our featured bloggers today and don’t forget to tell them that you found them via Finest Foodies Friday!

As Always...

Happy Entertaining!!!
