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 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 under 2000 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 us, 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 us over on The Leftover Queen/Foodie Blogroll Forum, and post your favorite Foodie Blogroll foodblogs here.

Sometimes there are blogs that I think I have already featured because they are so obviously good, that is why the nominations are so important – because it reminds me, Hey you! Get with the program!

One such Blog is Feeding Maybelle
This blog is just great in so many ways. Maybelle’s Mom (as she goes by) always posts beautiful and super original entries to The Royal Foodie Joust. Her photography and real knack for presentation also makes everything just look amazing! Maybelle, her daughter is the inspiration for the blog. She has some special dietary needs that made her mom really assess and look at the foods they eat as a family. But trust me, this is food everyone would enjoy!

Joelen’s Culinary Adventures

Joelen is one of the first Foodie Blogrollers from way back when. Her blog has grown a lot since we were blogging babies together! She now hosts highly successful local culinary events called “What’s Cooking Chicago” through She has extended this event to cyberspace so that anyone can join her and her group in their culinary adventures! How fun is that? Her parents were both caterers, although they are retired now. So you can be sure she knows how to entertain! Be sure to check out her blog for great ideas for your next get together with friends or family!

The Crabby Cook
This is not a blog about crustaceans, although they are featured at times. It’s just that the guy at the wheel of this blog is a self-professed grump – hence the name of the blog. But don’t be fooled guys, this blog is not pessimistic, quite the contrary. It has a lot of great eats in the offerings. He loves to eat and to share his knowledge and tips for the kitchen with all his readers, inspiring everyone to feel that they too know how to cook.

Foodie With Family
Written by Rebecca and Valerie a step-daughter/step-mother team with a shared obsession for all things food-related. What a great team they make. From Rebecca’s love for cheesecake (she is a self-employed baker and cheesecake artist – sounds great!) to Valerie’s love of all kinds of cuisine’s from Mexican, Jewish, French, Italian, Chinese, Southeast Asian and Indian foods. As well as vegetarian, vegan and raw food. So there really is something for everyone to enjoy with this blog as inspiration!

Okay, this one’s for the Ladies (or the guys too, if you can expand your mind)! Now you all must admit to wanting to be a Goddess in the Kitchen, right? Well here is one such : The Goddess’s Kitchen (and here I was thinking it was cool to be a Queen! LOL!)
This is Maria‘s blog and Maria is a full time Domestic Goddess! She loves cooking, baking, spoiling her hubby, son, and kitties as well as collecting beautiful cookbooks! Sounds pretty awesome to me. If that sounds like you – head on over and get some ideas for dinner!
