Foodie Friday -- July 25th

 Welcome to Foodie Friday,
where great food is always on the menu.
My grandmother used to say that if two forks are crossed it means
that company is coming. And guess what? You are here, visiting me at today's recipe party.
Glad you made it! Let's eat cake.

The recipes at Foodie Friday are akin to reading a weekly cookbook. You'll find the best recipes and cooks, not to mention the nicest bloggers in the world. It takes tremendous work to prepare food-oriented blog posts. In fact, it's harder than just about any type of blogging.
Let's cut huge slices of cake for everyone who cooks and plays with us each week. I am grateful for all that you do and for the amazing recipes that you contribute to FF.

While we're eating cake, let's take a look at last week's most-viewed recipes:

#1 -- 10 Easy Slow Cooker Recipes for Summer by Homemade Interest. If you
missed these winning recipes, you'll want to hop right over to Kat and Melinda's blog.
This is on my list:: Peach BBQ Pork Sliders and Apple Cole Slaw.
Doesn't it look sublime and summery?

#2 --  Living with Thanksgiving's appetizer collection is another keeper. Bonnie has put together recipes and ideas that you will use year-round. 

#3 -- The Painted Apron's Stuffed Bread Bowl Dip looks mouth-watering.

You'll also get to visit with Miss Firecracker!

Every Friday, we are joined at this big, virtual table--thank you for stopping by today. I'm grateful to all of you who spend your days cooking. I'm grateful to old and new friends who contribute recipes every week. I'm grateful to friends who leave a comment. I'm grateful for the silent folks, because you are brought here by your love of all things culinary.
Participants' photos will be pinned to Foodie Friday's Pinterest board if links are added by between Thursday, July 24th and Sunday, July 26th. Have fun pinning from the source blogs. You can see photos from previous parties at Consuming Passions.
