Even though today is my last day of vacation, I know I have some treats to go back to in St. Louis. How? Why? From my foodie pen pal, of course! Today is Foodie Pen Pal Reveal Day, so make sure you head over to The Lean Green Bean and check out all the lovely foodie items that were sent and how they’re being enjoyed.
This month I sent a box full of goodies to Robyn. Robyn actually just recently created her own blog – My Healthy Nest - so go to her
nest blog to find out what I sent and leave some love. A reader named Carolyn sent me a package, and the timing couldn’t have been more perfect; it arrived the day before I left, so I was able to tear into it and check out my goods! And good is just what I found:
No Pudge! Fudge Brownie Mix – just the name cracks me up, and the fact that all you need to do is add yogurt in order to make an instant brownie… pretty cool! What really stole my heart was Peanut Butter & Co.’s White Chocolate Wonderful Peanut Butter. I’ve had some other flavors from PB & Co., but surprisingly never the white chocolate. This is the one thing that I opened immediately because I just had to taste it! Itz everything the name suggests. That won’t last long.
Carolyn also sent a can of organic garbanzo beans which is a great pantry staple to have. I think I’m due to make another batch of roasted chickpea snacks.
Check out these cute jars that also arrived on my doorstep:
Four different jars filled with homemade goodness! When I showed Jonny, he said, “Wow, your pen pal really did good this month, huh?” Yes, yes she did. We absolutely cannot wait to try each and every one of these jars. I have a feeling I’ll be begging Carolyn for some recipes… (Carolyn, consider yourself warned!)

Do you make your own spreads, jams, or syrups? I’ve just made different fruity chia jams – I’d like to start doing more!
