Friday Firsts

Now, onto a new feature here at Dinner at Christina's! Starting this Friday, the 19th I'm going to be hosting a weekly meme, Friday Firsts! This will be a place to share all of your culinary adventures and enthusiasm for new things! First time trying a recipe? Stop by and let us know! First time using your new mixer!? Tell us about it! First time eating okra? We'd love to hear!

Every Friday there will be a blog post here with the Friday Firsts graphic for easy recognition. I will share a "first" of mine and below will be a Mister Linky. Type in your blog and URL, hit enter and you will become part of the lists of "firsts" for that week! I love the enthusiasm and adventurism of the food blog community, so won't you join me in sharing and seeing each other's excitements each week!?

Oooh I love this! I'm in a dorm room at college though, so my firsts might not be as exciting, but I'd still love to participate!

Thanks Sophia and Susan! That's ok - any firsts are welcome, big or little!
