Happy Monday! Boy today I have a great recipe for you!! Just look!!
But before I go to my recipe, I want to thank Kristin from Beauty and My Feast for sending me such awesome goodies and being my Foodie Penpal this month. I made these most delectable, thick, light yummy pancakes with the Spelt Pancake Mix that Kristin sent me. She gave a great such great gifts, just look!
She gave me Bee Pollen, which is new for me, but I love it. I have been adding it to my yogurt! I also got a jar of Italian Salsa, which I can’t wait to dig into. I plan on making bruchetta with it. A recipe will come later for that! She also sent me some Maple Syrup, which I just love! Of course the pancake mix, which I want more of and she even sent doggie treats for my two bad babies. The treats are from a The Three Dog Bakery, and the flavor is Strawberries and Creme. They LOVE them! No, I mean LOVE. I swear my boy was going to eat my hand right off. Look!
They wanted me to say thank you! They really did love them. Their kind of, well not kind of, upset that they are all gone. Oh, and she gave me the nicest letter. She bought all of my goodies at the North Market in Columbus, OH. She said the Italian Salsa is locally made and so are the other goodies. Thank you Kristin so much for the wonderful package. I really love everything!!!! I dedicated my pancakes to you! Everyone you should check out Beauty and My Feast for some great restaurant reviews, recipes and more. Thank you again for everything!!! :)

-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 will have until the 15th of the month to put your box of goodies in the mail. On the last day of the month, you will post about the goodies you received from your penpal!
-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!)
-Foodie Penpals is open to blog readers as well as bloggers. If you’re a reader and you get paired with a blogger, you can choose to write a short guest post for your penpal to post on their blog about what you received. If two readers are paired together, neither needs to worry about writing a post for that month.
- Foodie Penpals is open to US, Canadian residents & UK residents. Please note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only. We’ve determined things might get too slow and backed up if we’re trying to send foods through customs across the border from US to Canada and vice versa. So, I’m going to keep two separate lists and match US w/ US and Canada w/ Canada!
