Fabulous Foodie Fridays #52

Wow! I can’t believe it’s already the 1 year anniversary of our Fabulous Foodie Fridays parties! Gosh, time flies when you’re having fun. Yep, it was just over a year ago that Lauren and I thought we needed to promote all of the yumminess that our amazing food blogging community has to offer… and boy has it grown from there. We now have Danielle helping us to run Fabulous Foodie Fridays and each week we have new and amazing bloggers linking up. We’re so excited by all of the food blogging talent out there. It really is incredible! So whether you’re a blogger linking up your delicious recipes, or a reader who pops by for some foodie inspiration, thank you from the bottom of our sugar-filled hearts for supporting Fabulous Foodie Fridays!

And we all know that every good birthday party starts with cake – so it’s no wonder that these Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting from The Master Chefette caught my eye. Talk about yum.

Love Swah gave me the biggest giggle with her cleverly named Crap Free Muesli Bars. Gotta love a girl who tells it like it is.

Now I’m sure by now you know that cheesecake is a huge weakness of mine. Put me anywhere near a slice and it will be inhaled in about 2 seconds. So it was very dangerous (in a yummy way) when I saw this Baked Chocolate Rum Cheesecake from Cooker and a Looker. Very dangerous indeed.

Our Fabulous Foodie Fridays parties have nearly been running for a year now (in fact, next week is our 1 year anniversary – yay!), and yet in that whole time, Lauren, Danielle and myself have never met in person all at the same time. It probably doesn’t help that we live in 3 different states…
