Blog Love: March 2015

Hello all! For our readers in Guatemala, we know you are welcoming holy week as much as we do, and for our readers in the US we know you’ve been enjoying spring break as well. So, in the spirit of spring cleaning, our Blog Love this month is dedicated to Organizing your Kitchen, as well as some additional tips for freezing produce and ingredients substitutions.

We already are getting our kitchens ready for the upcoming months, and we think that so should you. After the holidays and getting our kitchens working like a smooth machine, often we start just storing things were they are not supposed to go, or maybe that opened rice bag just got pushed back to the back of the cabinet. Take a morning and organize your kitchen. See what is available for use… and see if those canned goods are still good (we all have a can that hides and goes over its due date). We promise you will feel much better afterwards.

We have tips from Brit & Co., A Beautiful Mess, The Inspired Room, Squawkfox, Martha Stewart, The Kitchn, Better Homes and Gardens and a link back to our own Substitution Tables. Do you have a favorite site you’d like to see featured here? Write a couple of lines and let us know, we would love to add them to our frequently visited sites!

Children’s Day! – Blog Love

Children’s Day is celebrated globally, different countries have different dates to honor children on a special day.  Guatemala celebrates Children’s Day on October 1st, usually family members make the little persons in their lives feel celebrated by giving them a special treat, going on a special outing or making them a special meal, and at school  they have a fun filled day with activities and goodies.

I’m sad that this year Kristen won’t be able to celebrate Children’s Day at school because she got sick, but we will try to make her feel special with homemade treats… and we’ll probably have a Disney Princess movie marathon.

Here are some ideas (a lot of them are quick!) you can try at home to celebrate your child:
