Foodie penpal reveal!

001

Have I told y’all how much I love foodie penpals? Pretty sure I have…

When you live in a small town, it can be tricky to make it to the post office when it’s open to pick up parcels, so I had the notification card sitting on the dash in my car for a few days… the torture!

Natalie sent me a parcel this month, and I send goodies to Kathy. Natalie’s blog is: sugarflourflavour.blogspot.com. I’m a bit of a cupcake purist these days, but Natalie has a ton of deliciously sweet deliciousness on her blog – go check it out!

Natalie asked me what kind of things I liked, and of course, chocolate and anything sweet-and-salty. Usually, I just ask for my penpals to surprise me, with tasty results, but to have a package tailored to me, all me, was fun! What I’m particularly appreciative of are cupcake liners for Cupcake Fridays! How absolutely adorable! I received a beautiful hand-written note, and a recipe for sweet-salty cookies. Wow 🙂

There was a dark chocolate and salt-covered caramel, but I promise you, it jumped out of the wrapper and into my mouth. There was nothing I could do! Natalie sent me tea with coconut agave and honey – these will be going under the lid of a bento at some point for a sweet treat after lunch. The coffee cup cozy is lovely, reduce, reuse, recycle – it’s in my purse for the next time I’m in the mood for a latte. I’m excited for the quinoa pasta – gluten-free posts are very well-received on here, so I am looking forward to making lunch with it. Finally, a Starbucks salted caramel hot chocolate – what’s awesome is that I sent Kathy one of these as part of her treats. Great minds think alike!

  1. there is something similar here in germany, but only 4 times a year. “mail from my kitchen” with selfcooked goodies! I want to participate in the next round. seems like fun!

  2. It’s funny that we both sent Starbucks hot chocolate. Probably because it’s so good!
    I’m so glad you liked your package!
