Hello, dear readers!
Yes, I know it’s Tuesday and this post is titled Feature Friday, but either I’m doing this post really late or really early.
In this case, I’m late. It was supposed to be posted this past Friday, but here’s the thing…
In the beginning of the week last week while lying in bed, I had an epiphany!
And why the heck is it that I come up with my best thoughts and writing while I’m in bed?
I’d love to write all these fantastic ideas down, but I know the Mr. would be none too happy if I keep moving around to turn the bedside lamp on so that I can jot it all in my notebook. Maybe I should just master writing in the dark, hunh?
Anyway, while lying there in the dark I was thinking about the blog and the Facebook page and came up with a great idea (well, I thought it was anyway) to highlight a different blogger friend each week so that we could get to know them and their blog a bit better.
That is exactly what I did this past week and for our very first Feature Friday, Joan at Chocolate, Chocolate and More Chocolate was our guest! It was so exciting and coincidentally, Joan was quickly approaching 10,000 friends (I like to call you all friends, not fans) on her FB page which is certainly nothing to sneeze at. It’s a huge accomplishment and I am thrilled to say that with a couple of shout outs from other foodie friends, and as of this writing, Joan has well surpassed it and now stands at 10,637 and climbing!! If you’re on FB, head on over to see her. She’s having, what else, a chocolate party all week to celebrate and friends have been bringing some incredible dishes. You must go see, especially if you’re a chocolate lover!

For this past Feature Friday and future ones, I will be telling you a little bit about the blogger, highlighting some of his or her recipes and asking them 10 questions so that we can get to know them a little better. Joan and I had a lot of fun doing this and I’m sure it is something that will introduce you to some great bloggers you may not already be aware of.
There are SO very many blogs out there covering SO very many different topics that it is just impossible to become familiar with all of them, so I hope to help you out with that!
There are NO recipes here on this post. For those, you will have to click the links for the pictures and they will take you to the recipes at Joan’s blog.
I now introduce to you for our very first Feature Friday guest, Joan of Chocolate, Chocolate and More Chocolate!!
I have had the absolute pleasure of knowing Joan since the end of last year I believe, or it could have been the beginning of this year. Anyway, I can’t remember because it truly does seem like we’ve been friends FOREVER!
When she first came across my blog (and I don’t know how she found me), she left a comment that because we have so much in common we must be “sisters from another mother”. I completely agree and I am SO very happy to have Joan as a dear friend! She has been an incredible help in all things blogging, her recipes…well, they speak for themselves and they aren’t all about chocolate, believe it or not, she is extremely kind and generous and someone every person should have in their corner! She also did a guest post for me!
Her Seven Layer Bars are out of this world delicious!!
I am both honored and blessed that she agreed to be our first guest, and with such little notice on my part!
So again, without further adieu, I give to you…
Everyone be sure to check out the 365 Days of Baking Facebook Page and hit that “Like” button if you haven’t already because that’s where I’ll first be posting our Feature Friday guest. Then towards the evening I’ll be posting it here!
