Before we get to FFF, I want to give you all a message about
The New Foodie Blogroll Website!

There has been a lot of buzz going on lately about what is going on with the Foodie Blogroll. Why is there more than one widget out there? Why haven’t the 10 random and 10 newest blogs changed in the past few weeks? etc. Well there is only good news! We have been working like busy little bees this past month getting the new and improved Foodie Blogroll site ready! We have been listening to your suggestions and there are going to be a lot of exciting changes that I know you all will love! :)

We are moving the Foodie Blogroll to a new hosting company and server to better serve the Foodie Blogroll community and because of this, the website and the widgets have been static for the past several weeks, while we get everything moved over and in working order. You should be expecting an email from us in the very near future (within the next week or so) with more information! So keep a lookout for the latest in The Foodie Blogroll network! Now for the FFF.

I love Natalie‘s blog, Hot Off the Garlic Press
Natalie has such a fun and humorous personality that really shows on all her blog posts. Her food philosophy is something else I can really relate to: “gourmet in a flash”. She “love(s) to create home-made chic recipes for my foodie friends to impress their friends and family with. And I think you can make delectable creations that do a body good, and that is my aim”. Great aim, Natalie! If you haven’t been over there yet, please go say hi!

Irena‘s blog is Not Another Food Blog
There may be a lot of great food blogs out there, but Irena’s is not a blog to be missed. She has had a love for food and cooking before she even had teeth and enjoyed sucking on prosciutto as a youngster! Now that is woman who has to have grown to have great taste! She loves entertaining for friends and family and all of her hobbies revolve around food! So don’t forget to stop by her blog for some great eats!

Christy‘s blog, Southern Plate: Recipes from Below the Mason Dixon Line is the real deal. Her family line reaches back to some of the first settler families in the Tennessee valley. She has learned the art of cooking from her mama and grandmother, people who “take ingredients they have on hand and not just “make do” but make magic at the dinner table”. If you want to experience some real Southern cooking and hospitality, please go see her blog!

The Food Monster lives and eats in Los Angeles. As it just so happens I am listening to one of my favorite bands, from LA – The Red Hot Chili Peppers while writing this episode of FFF! Anyway, The Foodie Monster’s blog features recipes of his own creation, as well as adaptations from other recipes and restaurant reviews – so please be sure to check out this terrific and tasty blog!

Mallow‘s blog, Pietown is a blog worth mentioning. She has an awesome blog filled with lost of goodies, from the sweet to the savory. She has been on hiatus for a few months, but she is now back in action, armed with a new camera! So be sure to stop over and welcome her back to the blogosphere!

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!!!!!!
