Foodies Freebie: August 2015 Wallpaper Collection

July flew by as fast as it came, and next thing we know we are in August. Somewhere in Facebook a picture popped… some stores are already displaying Christmas ornaments. Can you believe it? Anyway, we are delighted on how good the reception of our new section Little Foodies has gone, specially since the little sous-chef is excited looking for new recipes for her to make. She picks each one! All have been a great success.

This month on our Wallpaper Collection we feature gorgeous strawberries, pears and granola. We whipped up a batch of our The Best Granola Recipe to keep handy for our weekly breakfasts at home. It takes about an hour to prepare and it lasts for quite a while… though it never lasts more than 2 weeks at home. This time we skipped the sesame seeds.

Now, have you subscribed to our newsletter Notes? There, we share the recipes we posted throughout the month, the Wallpaper Collection, as well as some extra goodies. You can subscribe here. So while you wait for our newsletter to arrive, go ahead and download our freebie calendars of the month, for your desktop, laptop, tablet or phone.  We hope you enjoy them!

Half way mark, check! We are in the seventh month of the year! This month we have been focusing on getting into the healthy track, between exercising and eating correctly things are good. We also did some recipe testing (and figured where we need to tweak to make the perfect recipes for you!) and are a little behind on our June Blog Love, which will be posted tomorrow. Expect July’s Blog Love right on schedule.

Foodies Freebie: June 2015 Wallpaper Collection

Is it halfway through the year already? This year has gone by so fast! Thank you all again for being part of our 5th Anniversary, we were thrilled to meet @mercemg3 and give her the grand prize. We will keep you all posted for the next one!

This month we feature the lovely calamansi (or calamondín) is like a fusion between a tangerine and a kumquat. Strangely enough, the calamansi tree is often given an ornamental use rather than a culinary one. My grandmother has a tree in her garden, and most of the time is packed with these little gems. You can juice them like you would a tangerine, or you can blend them all together, straining it the resulting juice. We like to juice them to avoid the bitterness from the skin. We have shared a couple of recipes using calamansi, like this Tangy Poppy Seed Loaf or this Calamansi Pie, but you can easily replace tangerine or even lemon juice with calamansi juice and adapt those recipes. The results are great!
