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!

Foodies Freebie: November 2014 Wallpaper Collection

We know that the lack of recipes from this last month has been unusual, but in a few days we will spill the beans on our main reason. Now, for this month, we have some fall-full recipes coming up. We often try recipes before posting them on the blog. That is for holidays, special occasions or even regular weekdays. Last year we made this great Bourbon Spice Cake, so this year we am going to make it to share it here. Also, Pumpkin Soup, we already have a recipe for it (you can find it here Curry Pumpkin Soup), but we are going to get a second one around here. Not everybody is a fan of coconut or curry. Also, we have been searching for a perfect go-to vanilla white cupcake. We’ve baked…maybe 4 recipes and non are as perfect as we want, or have so many ingredients and steps, it’s crazy. Do you have a favorite recipe you’d like to share with us?

Now, for the November 2014 Wallpaper Collection, you can download them just bellow. 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 2011 Desktop Calendar

Fall is here… And for the looks of it gone! It’s been already snowing on the Northeast of the US. We’re hearing some places are getting up to 8 inches of snow! But, still celebrating the fall season, we got some amazing pictures to share with you, our beloved fans.

After a trip to Saratoga Farmers Market, Jake from Prepressology gave us a plenty of pictures to choose from to use for the November 2011 Desktop Calendar. We looked through all his pictures we couldn’t decide on just one to give you as a freebie. We decided to post our two favorites! The colors are simply fall perfect. Thank you Jake!
