Foodies Freebie: October 2014 Wallpaper Collection

Hello all! Thank you so much for visiting our little blog. We are so happy that in the last month we have been finding more TFK fans! Last month we were invited by Nokiate Restaurant to a tasting of their new menu. The dishes were unbelievable! We shared our experience on Instagram, but you can get all the pictures (and names of the dishes we tried on our Flickr Page. We shared the table with Beatriz and María from GuateDining, Ma. André and David from THY Mazine, Andrea and Mónica from Look Magazine , Stephanie from Stephanie’s Closet and her boyfriend Roberto. We had a great time and an amazing meal!  You can stop by  Nokiate’s FB page and say hi!

Pumpkins! We both have a small centerpiece in each of our homes to celebrate the everything-pumpkin-season. The first thing we celebrate here in Guatemala when October comes around is Children’s Day, which is celebrated on October 1st. In the US it’s an observed date on some states (second Sunday in June). Here, we go all out. Usually, there are plays at schools, special brunches for kids and all sort of fun things. We spent the day with our little sous chef and had a blast.

Also, October is Cancer Awareness month, and we are honored to be asked by Perry to be ambassadors for their program #CintaDeLaEsperanza. You can go to CintaDeLaEsperanza.com and donate your Facebook or Twitter cover picture. Perry and Cinépolis Guatemala will donate for every profile signed up. If you don’t want to donate your wall or you’re not active on social media, you can head out to your nearest supermarket and buy Perry’s turkey sausages, and those funds will go to INCAN, Guatemala’s Institute against Cancer. For those abroad, you can head out to donate to your favorite against cancer organization. We love to help and we encourage you to do so too.

This weekend, Look Magazine and Wunderkeks are hosting the second charity bake sale #WunderBakeSale. Wunderkeks is baking over 700 brownies, 1,500 cookies, 2,400 truffles, 200 pies, 160 cakes, 1,200 cupcakes… a never-ending list of desserts. All of this to raise Q.100,000 for INCAN, Guatemala’s Institute against Cancer that we mentioned above. These funds will go entirely for the fight against breast cancer. The event will be at the KitchenAid Gourmet Center in Paseo Cayalá, on October 4th and 5th, from 10AM to 6PM.

We will be unveiling more surprises we are working on, but in the meantime, you can download the complete October 2014 Wallpaper Collection for your Desktop, iPad, iPad Mini and iPhone. If you have a recipe you would like to see featured at The Foodies’ Kitchen, leave it on the comments, contact us through Social Media or email us! We would love to hear your suggestions!

Foodies Freebie: November 2013 Wallpaper Collection

Hello fellow foodies! Had enough candy from Halloween yet? We sure have! We are still enjoying all the colors from the fall. We were lucky that this year  we were able to find some pumpkins, not like the gorgeous ones you see here, but close enough.

logo_websiteThis month in our wallpaper collection, we feature another picture from the very talented Susan Ochaeta, from Andie.M Design Shop. We are loving so much the pictures that she sent us that we just had to share a second wallpaper from her… again with pumpkins! But this time, different colored pumpkins with a touch of flower and woods.

As always, all of our desktops are iOS7 and Retina display friendly. Feel free to download them all and remember to spread the word about Susan’s great work.

Pumpkin Muffins

Since September we’ve been going crazy for pumpkin everything with Helga. I went on a two-week vacation (after almost 2 years!) and I was able to feed my pumpkin craziness in the states. Here in Guate we didn’t used to get pumpkins until last year that it turned into a craze… and we were happy to be part of the pumpkin craziness! This year, we are sharing a few of our new favorite pumpkin recipes.

Looking for Pumpkin Muffin recipes, you’ll find many different ones. I always go through the ingredient list, how much it calls from each and that can give you a good idea if the batter will turn into a moist muffin or a very dry one. This combination from Deb at Smitten Kitchen, is definitely a winner, and the cinnamon and sugar mixture to sprinkle on top… is genius.

I can say, that having them  just a few inches away from where I’m sitting and writing this post, it makes you want to reach out and grab one to munch while working!

Warm Apple Salad

All through the year, we’ve been eating salads a lot. I’m always trying to find new ingredients, or new ways to use common ingredients to try to make my salads a little bit more interesting.  I saw a photo of a salad, and on the caption it read “warm apple salad”.  I didn’t even read the recipe, and I can’t remember where I saw it, probably on Pinterest. But I was inspired to try my own version, putting together a few ingredients.  I’ve already made it several times after that. A simple grilled apple and some nuts give so much flavor to mixed greens.  I whipped up a vinaigrette with a little mustard and honey, which I think is the perfect pairing for apples and almonds in a salad. This is not only pumpkin season, but apple season as well… so take advantage, you won’t regret it, I promise… and you’ll make it in a flash.
