Foodies Freebie: May 2013 Wallpaper Collection

Can you believe it’s May already? We are a few days away from unveiling our surprise! :) Today, we feature flowers (not food) on our May 2013 Wallpaper Collection. May brings flowers and most importantly, Mother’s Day! Here in Guatemala, we celebrate Mother’s Day on May 10th, and in the US it’s on the second Sunday of the month. Either way, try to make the entire weekend a celebration for the special mom(s) in your life!

This month we got tons of Foodies Mail asking about different dishes for us to prepare (we are looking for some good solid recipes!), or about places and restaurants they could visit in Guatemala… and mostly just other Guatemalans that are far away from home that just found our local cuisine posts. We are thrilled to know that our fellow chapines are enjoying these little bits of Guatemalan flavors around the globe!

Foodies Freebie: April 2013 Wallpaper Collection

Summer is at its peak in Guatemala, and after relaxing last week we are back with batteries charged… And still working on that surprise that Helga mentioned before. April 2013 Wallpaper Collection features Watermelon.

Watermelon is a vine-like flowering plant originally from southern Africa. Its fruit is also called watermelon and has a smooth exterior rind (green, yellow and sometimes white) and a juicy, sweet interior flesh (usually deep red to pink, but sometimes orange, yellow and even green if not ripe). It is cousins to cucumbers, pumpkins and squash. Watermelon is 92% water and early explorers used watermelons as canteens.

Here are a few tips to pick a good watermelon:

  1. Look the watermelon over. You are looking for a firm, symmetrical watermelon that is free from bruises, cuts or dents.
  2. Lift it up. The watermelon should be heavy for its size. Watermelon is 92% water, most of the weight is water.
  3. Turn it over. The underside of the watermelon should have a creamy yellow spot from where it sat on the ground and ripened in the sun.

Foodies Freebie: March 2013 Desktop Calendar

Summer is here! Well, at least in Guatemala… With summer come these delicious fruits, that we think come straight from the gods. We share these 3 fun facts about this versatile fruit from Mango.org:

  • The Mango is a symbol of love in India, and a basket of mangoes is considered a gesture of friendship.
  • Legend says that Buddha meditated under the cool shade of a mango tree.
  • Mangoes have natural tenderizing properties, making them a perfect ingredient for marinades.

Now, we can show you How to Cut a Mango but we know what you came for here: Our March 2013 Desktop freebie. Today we are expanding our wallpaper family from the Desktop to the iPad and iPhone. We designed these specifically for iPad and iPhone, including the iPhone 5, iPad with Retina display and the iPad Mini. We hope you enjoy it!
