Blog Love: October 2014

Hi there! We’re still around… We know, it’s been very quiet around here, but fret not, we are coming back. Between work, end of year school from our little souschef and a very cool and sweet surprise for those in Guate (around mid December), we’ve been busy bees. To start off, we are sharing our favorite Halloween posts from Pizzazzerie, A Beautiful Mess, Bake at 350, Celebrations at Home Blog, Birds Party, Simple Recipes and Bakerella.

Since we have been slow on our Halloween recipes this year, what’s better than to make our Blog Love a Halloween Edition. First, we have Simple Recipe’s Cinnamon Sugar Bats and some Spooky S’mores Bars from Bake at 350, then two recipes from Pizzazzerie: Silly Monster Halloween Cupcakes and Monster Eye Asparagus Gruyere Tart. After that, we head out to A Beautiful Mess for some Edible Chocolate Bowls, and Bakarella’s Mini mummies. They are adorable. And last but not least, some sweet DYI: Ghost Drink Stirrers from Celebrations at Home and Free Printable Trick or Treat Party Boxes from Bird’s Party. Definitely a full pack of themed goodies for your Halloween gathering.

We hope you enjoyed it and we promise we are back to our regular schedule posting this week! Do you have a favorite blog you want us to feature and share with the rest of our readers? Let us know on the comments or through our Contact Page.

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.

Fall is here! Fall is here! Well, for us in Guate it means that the rains will decrease and the air will get crisp… And for our readers in the north, the colors start to change: the greens turn to orange, red and brown to prepare for the winter snow.

logo_websiteFall means that we can officially can start planning for all the end-of-year celebrations. It’s no secret that we love pumpkin, and this year we are planning to give you a few more recipes. We have a gorgeous set of pumpkins featured as on our wallpaper collection, and this gorgeous picture was taken by Susan Ochaeta, from Andie.M Design Shop. Not only she’s a great designer, she’s also an amazing photographer. She sent us many amazing pictures to choose from, but this one was the one we both fell in love with.

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