Happy Friday!

Recently I have been really loving the foodie blogosphere.  The talent out there blows me away – all the self-made photographers, recipe developers, web designers, social networkers…it takes a lot to run a good blog. Most of all I love the community.  After commenting on blogs, email exchanges, guest posting, etc. it really starts feeling like you have friends out there, all over the world, interested in the same things. For anyone I’m sure that is a great feeling. For someone who quit working to stay at home with a tiny tot (me), it’s one of life’s great blessings.

All this led me to the idea of Friday’s Fave Five where I get the chance to show off what other bloggers are creating. The idea is that weekly I’ll post a round-up of some serious drool-worthy recipes made that week. Hopefully this both give you some weekend cooking inspiration as well as introduces you to some new amazing blogs.

Today I’m feature five of my favorite blogs and five inspired recipes.
