Give `Em Props

Hi everyone this week seems like it went by so fast but there was a lot going on so let’s just recap what was happening in the foodie world this past week.

Well as most of us know who follow her on her blog, Twitter or Food Buzz, Michelle of Taste As You Go recently was hired by Scripps/HGTV. What an awesome opportunity for her. Way to go Michelle we know you will do well.

Next, one of our top bloggers is at it again. Mardi of Eat, live, travel, write is always challenging herself in her cooking so she has finally taken the next step and took on the Daring Cooks challenge for December with a Beef Wellington dish that looked absolutely delicious. It doesn’t end there her Beef Wellington also made it on the front page of Food Candy. Awesome job Mardi. By the way she will be going to France for 2 weeks on what I call a food lovers dream. In that 2 weeks she will be in Paris and Brittany and if you would like to learn more about her tentative itinerary you can see it at the bottom of her post here. Mardi have a safe and fun trip and post a lot.

If you have seen the post Big Mac: Make Your Own, Have a Party on Local Lemons you would know that not only did the food look delicious and inviting but that one post has spurned, by it’s overwhelming popularity, a new series for Allison in Fast Food Slow… The news doesn’t end there her Big Mac post also made it on the front page of Lifehacker. Way to go Allison with the 2 for 1 this week. Check out her second post for the series Fast Food Slow: Homemade Chicken Nuggets. What will she come up with next? Follow her to find out.

Let’s give congratulations to Jen of Tiny Urban Kitchen who made it on the Food Buzz Top 9, for the first time, with her Oven Roasted Kale "Chips". Great job.

This week we saw an addition to one our favorite Bento blogs. Pikko at Adventures in Bentomaking announced that you can now find her on Facebook. So stop by and become a fan.

This announcement popped up today but I decided to include it on today’s post because next Friday is Christmas.

Meghan from Travel Eat Love also one of our top food bloggers also made it to the front page of Food Candy with her Wednesday food and wine post. I must say I have to really thank Meghan because she and her new website were the catalyst for this new series. Thanks Meghan.

I wanted to leave this item for last. It’s not food related but it does involve a member of our foodie universe. Today Jennifer Finnigan who goes by the twitter name @Jennigan will be carrying the Olympic torch in Canada today at 1:39pm PST. This is the link she posted to watch! I just recently became a follower of Jennifer on twitter and I think this is going to be an awesome experience for her. Let’s give her our support.

Well that is it for today. If I have missed any recognition, blog changes or new food blogs this week I do apologize as I can only go by what I pick up from the bloggers I follow. If you would like to have any recognitions, blog changes or new food blogs posted up just let me know either by direct message on twitter @allingoodfood42 or by email at

I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. Be well, safe and happy.

So until next Friday Itadaki masu.

Thanks of the shoutout! I have posted a bit from Paris and there will be many more posts to come when I am home next week. Internet has been a bit sporadic in Brittany.... Happy New Year!

Hey Mardi, I know you are having a wonderful time in in Paris. I've always wanted to go there. I've been trying to keep up with your posts. I hope to hear more when you get back. Be safe.

Thank you so much for the props! I'm at the beginning of my second week at Scripps/HGTV and I'm already loving it.

Best to you in 2010!
