Sorry this post is a little later than usual today – but today was the day we said goodbye to my fabulous step-daughters, Rachel and Gwen, who returned to their home in CT today. I don’t know what I am going to do now without my kitchen helpers! 😉 But I am proud to say that while they were here, they both started blogs! I think eventually everyone in our family will be a blogger!

Anyway, 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 to share ideas about all things food related. With a membership of over 4,000 food blogs, I am sure you can find much inspiration and new friends! :)

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.

Gastronomer’s Guide

This blog is written by Joseph whose inspiration for blogging is to “celebrate the world of gastronomy in both the simple and elegant forms, from basic home cooking to elaborate restaurant cuisine. My aim is to teach, entertain, and expand the reader’s/eater’s fundamental experience with food into the extraordinary by exploring science, history, culture, cooking, dining, and eating.” The pictures are seriously drool-worthy.

SoCal Sustenance

Laura is an East Coast girl who shares her misadventures in learning to love the bounty of her new home in California. Her latest recipe for Peanut and Panko Crusted Chicken Nuggets with a Thai Satay sauce looks like a yummy weekend dish to me!

Stile Mediterraneo

Stile Mediterraneo means Mediterranean Way of Life. In Puglia, in Southern Italy, sisters Cinzia and Marika give a perspective of life in their beautiful region of Italy through blogging about the food and wine of the area. They also hold culinary and wine classes for those who wish to travel to Puglia to learn more first hand! Who knows, maybe the next time we are in Italy, we will stop by!

Feasts and Fotos

Susan from New York City is the writer behind this blog. She shares her adventures in the kitchen, behind the lens and on the road as she enjoys her hobbies of cooking, photography and travel! Her Independence Day Stuffed Potatoes look absolutely delicious!

Little House

This blog is written by a Vietnamese couple living in Singapore – talk about awesome food cultures!The original blog was written in Vietnamese, but this is the English version. Just like my blog, she does the cooking, and he does the photography! There are some really beautiful and unique (to me) recipes on this blog, and yummy photos accompanying each post!
