Well today is our 5 month wedding anniversary! I can’t believe how fast time flies! 🙂

One month from today we will be in New England, enjoying in the autumnal bliss! Can’t wait for sweaters and socks and pumpkin and maple EVERYTHING.

But anyway, onto the main event – Finest Foodies Friday!!!

Let’s start the ball rolling today with Nikki from Nik Snacks
Here is a Southern woman who has the art for baking, from perfect biscuits to muffins and also the savory side of things. Nikki is one of my blogging buddies who always has a great sense of humor and is just so down to earth. She teaches culinary classes, bakes for a local bakery and owns her own catering business besides being the editorial assistant for for a local newspaper! I just don’t know how she has all the time! For more about her exciting life, please drop by and say hi!

Let’s talk about Rosa’s Yum Yums
She is not kidding about the Yum Yum factor. If you have not been to her blog, I can hardly believe it. She is a Daring Baker extraordinaire and loves eating it up in Switzerland! Rosa is one of those bloggers who is extremely professional – her posts are always informative and her goodies delectable! Plus she also does Weekend Cat Blogging, which is just way to much fun! When you want a treat, go check out Rosa’s offerings!

Rachel, The Crispy Cook has a blog featuring gluten free foods with an emphasis on vegetarian and pescatarian food, cooking from the garden, naturally gluten-free recipes and some other tidbits. This is one of those blogs I can’t believe I haven’t already featured! Rachel has been an avid Royal Foodie Jouster since she joined the Foodie Blogroll. She and her husband also own a used and rare bookstore in upstate New York. Even if you are not gluten free, the food on her blog is certainly yummy!

Dee from Choos and Chews is filled with lots of treats – have you seen those Milk chocolate mini cakes with chestnut cream filling , because if not, you need to – they are awesome! But this blog is not all about baking, it is about forays into good eating, while raising a child and working from home. Because hey, sometimes you just have your eye on a pair of Choos! Just go check it out.

The Home Cook, from A Taste of Home Cooking
is an inspirational blog. I was re-introduced to the blog when it was nominated for FFF by someone who began their own blog because of The Home Cook.  Her nominator says that “she makes consistently good, tasty food and is never afraid to admit her errors either. Love her.” Well that certainly sold me to go check it out. I have to agree, there is a wealth of wonderful ideas here that just could be dinner tonight!

Remember, if you would like to see a blog featured here, who is part of the FBR please visit the forum and nominate them. I NEED NOMINATIONS!!!!!!
