Last month, I participated in “foodie pen pals” for the first time.  You can read all about my first month here.  I enjoyed it so much that I decided to participate again for April.

This month, I sent a box of goodies to Alison over at Crafty Bake Oven.

In return, I received this box of goodies from Jessica over at  Opened Earth.


The chocolate chip cookies were amazing.  I don’t usually care for “hard” cookies, but these we so flavorful and tasty.  I enjoyed dipping them in milk.  I even shared some with my husband.

Everyone enjoyed the peanut butter too.  The white chocolate flavor really spruced up PP&J sandwiches over the last week or so.  The kids and I have been enjoying snacking on the other items, too.  But the peanut butter and cookies are definitely our favorites!

I’ve enjoyed these couple of months participating in the Foodie Penpals.  I’m going to be taking May and June off since my schedule is way to crazy, but I’ll be back.

Meanwhile, if you want to participate….

It’s time for some details about Foodie Penpals.  It’s open to blog readers and bloggers, so it’s open to everyone.

-On the 5th of the month, you will receive your penpal pairing via email. It will be your responsibility to contact your penpal and get their mailing address and any other information you might need like allergies or dietary restrictions.  You can participate in just one month, every month or any other schedule you choose.

-You will have until the 15th of the month to put your box of goodies in the mail. On the last day business day of the month, you will post about the goodies you received from your penpal!   If you aren’t a blogger, you write a short guest post for your pen pal.  If you get paired with another reader, you just enjoy your goodies.  Either way, remember to thank the sender!

-The boxes are to be filled with fun foodie things, local food items or even homemade treats! The spending limit is $15. The box must also include something written. This can be anything from a note explaining what’s in the box, to a fun recipe…use your imagination!

-You are responsible for figuring out the best way to ship your items depending on their size and how fragile they are. (Don’t forget about flat rate boxes!)
