We are thrilled to be turning 3! Time time sure flies by. It’s been 3 years of fun, hits and misses… but above all, of culinary adventures that we share with our friends and family. These past few months, we have been thinking about doing something BIG for Foodies. And it began with our little makeover. The new site and logo gave us an unexpected push, and we started adding more things to our little site:
- We expanded the Desktop Calendar to a Desktop Collection (Desktop, iPad and iPhone wallpapers)
- The Foodies’ Kitchen Store (powered by Amazon)
One of the things we started thinking from the early days, but didn’t get on it right away, was to have The Foodies’ Kitchen in both english and spanish. We talked about it several times over the years, but last December when we were releasing our new look, we decided it was time! So, the work started behind the scenes, working behind the scenes: making the backbones of the site ready to take on a new duty: serving as a mirror for our content in both spanish and english. that meant coding, making things look exactly the same and properly translated. After a week or so, we started to translate the first batch of recipes. To the day, we have translated 72 recipes and articles. The work ahead of us is long: 548 recipes and articles to translate.
From today on, all of our new recipes will be in both Spanish & English. And we will be adding more to the mix as we go. Of course, we wanted to launch this with all of our recipes translated, but they are quite a few, and you won’t believe how sometimes certain ingredients are not that popular locally, so we have to look for the correct translation for them. Since not only our recipes get our love, the Desktop Collection will also be in both Spanish and English (we already updated our May calendar so you can download it in spanish too). To switch between both languages, you’ll find a big button on the sidebar to your right – click away!
And because just translating wasn’t going to be enough, we have a brand new domain for our Spanish counterpart: lasfoodies.com. We absolutely love our name in english, but it’s quite a mouthful when sharing our site with someone who doesn’t speak english. It’s short, memorable and we are crazy happy about it.
