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!

Blog Love: October 2014

Hi there! We’re still around… We know, it’s been very quiet around here, but fret not, we are coming back. Between work, end of year school from our little souschef and a very cool and sweet surprise for those in Guate (around mid December), we’ve been busy bees. To start off, we are sharing our favorite Halloween posts from Pizzazzerie, A Beautiful Mess, Bake at 350, Celebrations at Home Blog, Birds Party, Simple Recipes and Bakerella.

Since we have been slow on our Halloween recipes this year, what’s better than to make our Blog Love a Halloween Edition. First, we have Simple Recipe’s Cinnamon Sugar Bats and some Spooky S’mores Bars from Bake at 350, then two recipes from Pizzazzerie: Silly Monster Halloween Cupcakes and Monster Eye Asparagus Gruyere Tart. After that, we head out to A Beautiful Mess for some Edible Chocolate Bowls, and Bakarella’s Mini mummies. They are adorable. And last but not least, some sweet DYI: Ghost Drink Stirrers from Celebrations at Home and Free Printable Trick or Treat Party Boxes from Bird’s Party. Definitely a full pack of themed goodies for your Halloween gathering.

We hope you enjoyed it and we promise we are back to our regular schedule posting this week! Do you have a favorite blog you want us to feature and share with the rest of our readers? Let us know on the comments or through our Contact Page.

Blog Love: August 2014 – Food52 Edition

Our favorite site to browse this month was Food52 by far. If you haven’t visited them yet, Food52 is a site that pretty much brings food lovers from all over the world to exchange recipes, but at the same time they do much more. The community is great, swapping recipes, and since late June they introduced Collections. In them, you can save recipes, goods from a wish list, articles, anything goes. And, if you are subscribed to their newsletter not only you keep track of your friends, but also they give you great recommendations from different items based on the ones you already saved.

All around it’s a great site with a big community. And they have Provisions. Provisions is an online shop, curated by Food52, that features best products for kitchen and home… and honestly we want the entire store. From vintage bakeware to serving platters and picnic baskets… trust us, you’ll want it all.

Here are some of your favorite recipes, some we’ve tried, and some spiked our interest. We hope you enjoy this months’ special Blog Love.Do you have a favorite blog you want us to feature and share with the rest of your readers? Leave us a comment bellow or through our Contact Page.
