Foodies Freebie: December 2014 Wallpaper Collection

You see the little ornament? Ok, it may not so little on-screen, but it’s almost 2-inches wide. This ornament, or set of ornaments, are those that we don’t stop adding to our christmas tree. My parents got those ornaments years ago when we were kids and we always put them on. And however we’ve upgraded the tree’s lights, ribbons, bows, ornaments, stars or angels we always use them. They remind me of our firsts christmas, with Santa letters that were very specific on my part. I even attached drawings or magazine clippings so Santa would get the presents right. Now, I see my nieces, nephews and TFK’s own little souschef, writing those letters and my heart just melts. Do you have a special ornament in your house? Some of our friends that are already growing their families, have cool traditions, for example, buying one extra special ornament every year to commemorate that christmas.

Red leafSpeaking of christmas trees, ornaments and all joy all around, a few weeks ago we found out that we have direct access to home-visits from Santa. Can you imagine that? Our friends from Dear Santa GT get him to come to your house and visit the kids, take pictures. The works. Santa is a very cool guy with a gorgeous suit! You can head over to their Facebook page or drop them an email to book their services. Between us, he is one of the best looking Santas in town! Make sure that the kids write him a letter so the gifts arrive just in time. Oh, and let them know Helga and Kitty sent you!

Here you go, below you can download the last freebie calendars of the year, for your desktop, laptop, tablet or phone.  We hope you enjoy them!

Foodies Freebie: December 2011 Desktop Calendar

December is here!  Time for tree decorations, lights, cookies, friends & family. We love the holidays and part of what got The Foodies’ Kitchen started was cookie recipes! Back in 2009, even before we even thought about the blog, we were constantly sharing cookie recipes over email. Helga was in Guate and I was spending the Holidays in Upstate NY. I can’t remember how many recipes we shared… It was easy over 15 different recipes to decide on which ones we would bake. Even though we were not going to be able to make each other’s Christmas parties, it was our way of sharing what was going to be shared with our family and friends.

Along this month, we will be sharing our favorite Cookies & Candies recipes with you, all of them have been tested – some of them over the years! So sit tight, grab a cup of hot chocolate and enjoy this Christmas Extravaganza!

Here is our last Desktop Calendar of 2011 for you to download! Thank you for being part of The Foodies’ Kitchen this past year, and we hope that all of you, our loyal readers, keep on joining us from your kitchens!
