So here are today’s FFF picks!

Let’s kick things off today with Tanya‘s Take the Cannoli

Man, do I just get a HUGE kick out of that name! It is pure genius and it makes me smile every time. She is a pastry chef who also has her own parties and special occasions business. Another awesome woman living her dream! Another thing I just love about her bio is she says she feels like she was born in the wrong era – boy can I relate to that! πŸ™‚ But this is my favorite – a quote from her bio:
“The goal of creating this blog is to connect with other people who enjoy the same things I do. To share ideas and gain inspiration. None of us know everything, but we all know something, and I believe we can all learn from each other”. NICE.

The next blog is another blog with a great name: Yannis‘ blog, My Little Baklava

Who doesn’t like baklava, and if you are like me, who doesn’t love Greek food? These are two things that feature prominently on his blog. Yannis enjoys molecular science, good food, and Olympic archery. He is in fact a molecular science student at Oxford. So, a smart foodie. πŸ™‚ If you want to know what is going on in the food world at large, he often discusses various food articles on his blog as well as great recipes and restaurant reviews!

Erin‘s Blog, The Way The Cookie Crumbles

Erin loves food flavor and fitness and believes that they call all be together on your plate in happy harmony! She bakes a lot of cookies. She is not only a fitness instructor, but she also has her own cookie business. This balancing act that she does between decadence and health is a beautiful thing! So we can all have our cake, well, in this case cookie, and eat it too!!!
Go check it out!

Next is Lucia‘s blog, College Kibble

Lucia is a college student who believes that making real, satiating food during the college years just isnÒ€ℒt that hard. Her site is a chronicle of those meals, and let me tell you there are some really good eats on her blog – not just for college students! This is a girl after my own heart. When I was in college, I was determined to eat as best as was possible for my time and my means. Go Lucia!

Last but not least, Lizz‘s blog: I was really hungry

She just really loves food and she’s funny. She isn’t into super fancy food nor crazy food styling or fancy food photography. She just loves to eat and share her finds with her readers. She does very humorous and fun restaurant reviews as well as reviews on any other interesting food stuffs she happens upon. Very fun read – did I mention she is funny? Go check it out!
