December 2010 Desktop Calendar

December 2010 Desktop Calendar

At the beginning of every month, I am offering C&Z readers a new wallpaper to apply on the desktop of your computer, with a food-related picture and a calendar of the current month.

Our calendar for December is a picture of chocolate clusters, arguably the easiest of homemade chocolate confections. These particular ones are made with crystallized ginger and chopped almonds, and if you’d like to make some during the holidays, the recipe is here.

Instructions to get your calendar are below!

Here’s how it works:

1- This link will open a new window (or tab) displaying the right wallpaper image for your screen.

2- Right-click (or ctrl-click for some Mac users) on the image, and chose the option that says, “Set as Desktop Background”, “Use as Desktop Picture,” or something to that effect — the exact wording will depend on the browser you use.

3- If the image does not fit your desktop background neatly, you may have to go to your preference screen (on a Mac: System Preferences > Desktop & Screen Saver > Desktop; on Windows: Control Panel > Display > Desktop) and choose “Fit to screen” as the display mode of your background image.

4- Enjoy!

[Note: Readers of this blog live all around the globe, and I am unable to provide localized versions of the desktop calendar at this point. This is why I’ve opted for the international standard, by which a large majority of countries abide, and which states that Monday is the first day of the week.]

    Exquisite winter-themed calendar photo, Clotilde — merci beaucoup!

    As a fellow Kindle user — would your other books (apart from Edible Adventures) be made available on the Kindle store?

    Cool picture as always! I can’t believe it’s already December!

  • Liz

    Oh no! Now I have to go through the holidays at work with CANDY staring at me… heehee. Merci mille fois! I get so many compliments on these.

    Thanks for the calendars – I started using them a few months ago and really enjoy thinking about your recipes whenever I clear the screen.

    What better way to enumerate our days than by pairing it with food? It’s the barometer for the day, the weeks, the years…eating, three times a day, five times a day…it’s religious.

    Best of luck.

    Check out my blog if you get a chance.

    Well done / thought calendar design (the picture is not busy at all, a mistake oftenly seen with calendars, especially the page for december since it is christmas month).

    Hi Clotilde!
    Sorry we couldn’t meet when I was in Paris. Maybe next time! Just stopping by to say how much I enjoy your calendar pages!

    Setting as my wallpaper in 3 2 1 :) Those clusters look delicious and I can’t wait to try them out!

    Hi Clotilde!
    I use your calendar/background EVERY month, but never have I been inspired as I have been by this month’s calendar. I made these delicious treats over and over again in many of the varieties you suggested and a few more of my own! I put them in pretty boxes and gave them as gifts! It’s been great! Thank you for this inspiration and your website.
    (My most different and best alternative recipe I made up was to use small peppermint pieces and white chocolate bits along with the rice cereal. Sprinkled the peppermint flakes on top! Wow!)

      So happy to hear it, Betsy, thank you for letting me know!
