Blog Love: June 2015

A little late, but better late than never! Honestly, we had the blog posts already picked out, but our June turned busy… so here we are a few days late!

Today, we are talking about Marshmallow Conversions. have you ever thought now many mini marshmallows equal regular marshmallows? What if you could only find jumbos?  This nifty table from Cookies and Cups will answer your questions. Good to have it bookmarked. Then, King Arthur Flour give us a Graham Cracker Crust recipe and 6 ways to fill them! Now, Joy the Baker shares her Mango and Jalapeño Guacamole and Tracy from Shutterbean her Grilled Chicken with Tomato Parsley Salad. Because it’s not a party without desserts, we picked a Maple Bourbon Ice Cream from Spiced Blog, Rose-Flavored Rock Candy from A Beautiful Mess (they look gorgeous!) and Fudgy Chip Cookies from The Grey Boxwood.

Last but not least, Plated show us How to Clean a Wood Cutting Board the right way.

We hope you enjoyed our late June Blog Love and stay tuned for July’s edition.

Blog Love: April 2015

Can you believe April is almost gone? That means… Mother’s day is just around the corner! We have plenty of ideas on this month’s Blog Love from our favorite sites:

  • A colorful Asparagus & Arugula Salad with a Poached Egg by Once Upon a Cutting Board.
  • Or maybe you want to go with something sweeter with a Strawberry Cucumber Salad by Oh Sweet Basil.
  • If you want to get ahead with mother’s day bunch, a safe bet is to make this Overnight French Toast Bake by Damn Delicious.
  • Feeling on the fancy side? Try this recipe of Hash Brown Egg Nests with Avocado by The Cooking Jar.
  • And maybe for an easy brunch dessert, these Blackberry Banana Brunch Skewers by Bright Bold & Beautiful.
  • Fancy drinks on us! How about this Champagne Punch Bellini by Crazy for Crust.
  • And last, but not least, put everything together beautifully with this Pink & Polka Dot Brunch Styled Table by Best Friends for Frosting.

Plenty of ideas to choose from, and we are only getting started! Not too early to think about Mother’s Day. This year, in Guatemala we also celebrate it on Sunday! Perfect day for brunch! We have a few new TFK ideas coming up too, so stay tuned! Do you want to see your favorite blog in this space, or a shout out to your own?

Blog Love: November 2014

Hello all! Around here everything is starting to feel like Christmas. The store fronts are already decorated with christmas lights and snowflakes (even though it doesn’t snow around here… we love ’em), but we all  know that until Thanksgiving passes, we can still get away with a few pumpkin-filled dishes. In fact, we will try making my own pumpkin puree again this week, as we got some gorgeous sugar pumpkins that are asking to be turned into something delicious (thanks Juancho!).

On this months’ Blog Love, we are sharing some Moist Chocolate Pumpkin Brownies by Foodness Gracious, Twix Cookies by Chef in Training… Twix Cookies! That is the perfect bite in every way. Then, Bourbon Brown Butter Apple Cake by Baking Bites, and Cinnamon Vanilla Almond Butter by Baked Bree, which we are tempted to make both on the same day… and because you can’t live from dessert alone, Butternut Squash French fries by Heather Christo, Chicken with Figs and Grapes by Dash and Bella, and Roast Chicken with Crispy Skin by No Recipes. We also have a great snack from Two Peas & Their Pod: Rosemary Toasted Almonds.

We hope you enjoyed our Blog Love for November, and remember, if you have a favorite blog you want us to feature and share with the rest of our readers, just let us know on the comments or through our Contact Page so we can share them with the world!
