Foodie Pen Pals Round 2

Hi lovelies! I hope that you all had a great weekend. I had such a fantastic weekend and although Vegas was a blast, it was great to be back in SF. The weather was perfect, the company was great and lots of fun things occurred that I can’t wait to tell you about in the coming days.

But since it’s the last day of the month (seriously, where did April go?) it is a Foodie Pen Pal posting day! I participated for the first time last month and enjoyed the experience so much, that I had to do it again! This time around I was matched up with Erin from Recimplicity so check out her blog to see what I sent her and see all the rest of the Foodie Pen Pals entries for even more fun.

This month I got a fabulous box of goodies from another Emily– from Cap City Lady. Emily is from Ohio and all of the contents of my box were locally made! I love trying new-to-me products and these were all especially fun since they were from her hometown! I always say that the best way to experience a new place is through the food, and now I feel like I’ve gotten a taste of Ohio!

This box was full of some delicious treats, including special chocolates (the dark chocolate cashew patties were amazing) and potato chips. I have to admit that I’d never heard of marcelled potato chips and had to look it up to understand that it referred to the wavy-style chip.

Emily also included a recipe for some amazing-sounding Key Lime cookies that I cannot wait to make. One of the ingredients in the cookies is pineapple-lime jam, which is such a unique combination! She also sent me some all-natural peanut butter that accidentally went unpictured!

The box was amazing and thank you so much Emily for being such a wonderful Foodie Pen Pal! Do you want to join in on the fun? Here’s a little more info about the program:

  1. I love seeing what you get each month! It is so neat to see how creative everyone is and the goods that they ship! Key Lime Cookie recipe, Mmmmmmm!

  2. 2 ohio boxes in a row! lucky girl! that pineapple lime jam sounds amazing in those cookies!!

  3. I completely agree—it’s so fun to experience a place through food! It looks like Emily’s package was filled with amazing goodies! The dark chocolate cashew patties sound delicious, and so do those buckeyes! (<–A favorite of mine; I received some this month too!). :)

    If I were to send a local food product from Boise, I'd probably choose chocolate-covered potato chips. The combination of salty/sweet is dangerously addicting (similar to chocolate-covered pretzels). Since I claim two towns, I can't forget San Francisco! So many options from the Bay Area, but you can't beat sourdough bread-anything and Ghiradelli chocolate!

    Happy Monday, Emily! xoxo <3

  4. mmm… Everything looks really good!
    Side note where do you buy your granola? I inhaled that Vanilla Macaroon granola. So delicious :)

  5. That pineapple-lime jam sounds intriguing! Too bad I’m allergic to pineapple.

  6. I’m so glad you liked everything!
