So glad you're joining us for the January 10th Foodie Friday.
The cupcake photo (above) was taken a year ago for a Downton Abbey party. Did you
see last Sunday's season premier? If so, what did you think about it?
Were you affected by the Polar Vortex? That's a new term--one I never want to hear again.
Here in middle Tennessee, temps hovered at zero. When the thermometer finally
crept up to 17 degrees, I thought I was in the tropics. Oh, happy day.
Speaking of happy . . . .
Last week's Foodie Friday recipes were awesome. You can take a peek HERE.
Here are the 5 most-viewed recipes.

In case you missed the Mystery Ingredient Club announcement, here's a recap:
You're Cordially Invited...
What: The 3rd Mystery Ingredient Club
When: February 6th and 7th
Where: Foodie Friday, Rattlebridge Farm
What is the Mystery Ingredient Club?
Are you a fan of the cooking show Chopped? The participants are given
a basket that's filled with outlandish mystery ingredients, and it's up to the chefs to
create a dish.
That's what you'll do at our MIC.
An ingredient is announced, and /cooks are invited to use their imaginations.
You can read about the guidelines for the premier event HERE.
(Note: If you're visiting from Pinterest, be sure to click on the above links, scroll down to the bottom of each post and click on the members' names, and you'll find deliciousness to "pin.")
For the first two events, I reached out to several bloggers and asked if they would participate, then I mailed them the secret ingredient/s. The parties were delightful.
Quite a few bloggers suggested that the event be open to anyone who wished to participate. Everyone will purchase the ingredient, use it in a recipe, and share the finished product at the MIC/Foodie Friday Linky Party on Feb 6th and 7th.
Mary at Home Is Where the Boat Is suggested the ingredient for the 3rd party.
Can you guess what it is?
The mystery ingredient is . . .
Here are the guidelines for the Mystery Ingredient Club:
1. Find a recipe that includes dark chocolate. Purchase any type of dark chocolate: Bars, cocoa, or any type that sparks your imagination. I'm buying salted dark chocolate at Publix.
2. Create a blog post and add it to the Foodie Friday/MIC linky party on February 7th. You aren't required to have a backlink. (See updated Foodie Friday guidelines.)
3. If you are participating, please let me know by leaving a comment. (Thanks to
the bloggers who left enthusiastic comments last week. Can't wait to see what you'll bake.)
Participating bloggers will be featured in future posts.If you are contributing a recipe to this week's Foodie Friday, locate the blue Inlinkz icon in the lower, left-hand portion of this post.
