foodie pen pals – april

my fellow grouponer and blogger, stephanie, is a part of foodie pen pals! so i read it and thought i’d give it a try 🙂 check out her blog, upbeat eats!

foodie pen pals is exactly what it sounds – a fellow blogger came up with the idea. there’s a list every month of people who want to participate, we’re given a name and info and send them a box of goodies! it can be anything from your favorite snacks, regional delights, cooking ingredients, etc. you send off your box and you receive one in the mail, and you blog about it. i love it.

so this month i received a wonderful box from karen in oregon. she’s a teacher and everything was decorated SUPER cute with tags on them and fun little things for me to try!

super sweet. she read my blog and sent me some things that i can use in future cooking endeavors as well as some yummy, healthy snacks.

how cute is she??
homemade granola and crackers - which were both DELICIOUS by the way.

dried strawberries - so yummy and such a nice snack!

some barbecue rub, smoked albacore, a notepad for groceries!, flour for making my own pasta... some very thoughtful things 🙂

so again – thanks so much to karen over at the kitchen refugee for being my first amazing foodie pen pal! i’m going to have to try her doggy biscuits recipe soon.

also check out ravienomnoms to see what I sent out!
