March Foodie Penpals

This month's Foodie Penpals package came with perfect timing! Holly from Running & Baking Oh My! sent me an awesome package that arrived at the end of a cold and rainy Monday and brought me much cheer that evening. When I opened the package I was so excited to find it filled to the brim with awesome goodies. Holly thank you so much for the great treats, you definitely spoiled me this month!
 Look at all of those awesome goodies, Holly you are too good gal!
Holly definitely listened when I talked about some things that might be good in a box for me. I'm always looking for good snacks to keep around before heading to the gym, so she sent me some Luna bars and Larabars which have fueled some great workouts. I also mentioned I stopped drinking coffee for Lent so she sent me a variety of yummy teas that I've been enjoying.

One of my favorite things was that she sent me some recipes for muffins with the ingredients to make them--what a great idea! More to come about those later...
I promptly enjoyed some of the tea the next morning and have loved snacking on the sweet chili pistachios at work. I love keeping some nuts in the snack drawer of my desk for when I get cravings. Pop a few nuts and good to go. When it got snowy and cold last weekend I was excited to already have the ingredients on hand to do some baking and whipped up the chocolate chip muffin recipe which were awesome fresh out of the oven.

Another successful Foodie Penpal box! If you're interested in learning more about it, hop on over to The Lean Green Bean to find out the details. This month I sent a box to Kasandra at UrbanInSuburbia, go check out the goodies she got too!

I had never heard of Foodie Penpals until I read this post! This is so amazing-- I think I might have to sign up. Do you sign up for a month at a time or is it an ongoing thing?!

I also have a fun Summer Swap going on right now if you're interested in getting another goodie box in the mail! You can sign up here:
