For those of us in the US, yesterday was Thanksgiving. I hope all of our US members enjoyed their holiday and aren’t too stuffed with turkey and all the trimmings. I know for me, Thanksgiving dinner is my favorite, most anticipated meal of the year, and we were lucky enough to host my mom, dad and stepmom this Thanksgiving. More about that later….

As always here is what the FFF is all about. Finest Foodies Friday 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 5,200 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!

Culinary Disasters Blog

This blog is written by Jeff, another foodie I really “met” via Twitter. He participates in the Bread Baker’s Apprentice Challenge – where bloggers are baking their way through the cookbook of the same title. I love bread, and I make bread at home, so I always enjoy getting inspiration from his bread posts. He will disclose all failures AND successes. He says about his blog: “I am not a writer nor am I a photographer; I am simply a lowly underpaid and overworked computer guy. So do not be alarmed by the bad grammar, horrendous spelling, and even worse photography that this site offers. It is just me being me. Maybe if I make it big I would hire someone to do that part for me…..ok who I am kidding I would spend the money on truffles, veal, strange cheeses, or something that can be devoured.” Now that is a true foodie speaking! LOL!

The Closet Chef

The Closet Chef is authored by Peter, and it is a fairly new blog, started this past August. But you really wouldn’t know it if you went to visit the blog. The pictures look very professional (which is because he is a professional photographer by day! But still, the pictures are WOW), and the writing is that of a seasoned blogger. I became a fan instantly, and so will you!

Framed: My Life One Picture at a Time

Here is another food blog that focuses mainly on food photography. This is the inspiration for her blog in her own words: “Taking pictures — it makes me grin, it’s always on my mind, it satisfies my soul. And cooking, well, I am pretty much just making it up as I go along but in general it tastes pretty good. So this little blog is a lot of me and my Nikon, a lot of stuff I love to eat, and a bit of anyone or anything that will stand still long enough for me to take their picture. I hope you like reading it as much as I love cooking, photographing and writing it!” I always enjoy finding out more about people’s passions, especially when it involves food! 🙂

Lex Eat!

Lex loves everything about food. She says: “Eating delicious food is important to me and my girlfriend Y, so we are always looking to cook great food at home and eat great food out and about on our travels through London and further afield. I am writing this blog largely for my own enjoyment, and if also for the enjoyment of others then that would be really great.” I think this sums up why most of us blog. Yes, we do it for our own enjoyment, but we also love sharing with others that enjoy food as much as we do!

Stetted: The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same

Megan is a copywriter by day and a food lover the rest of the time! She says: “In my spare time I cook, write, read, and take photos. I’ve found that I like cooking even more than I had thought, and even go so far as to plan our dinner menus a month at a time (which helps my developing type-A tendencies). Probably the best gift I have received this year is my apron, because I wear it almost every day. On some weekends I wear it all day.” I love her photos and her simple yet delicious looking food.

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