November foodie parcel

Firstly sorry for the late reveal, i seem to have lost a week.  I would like to say a huge thank you to Fiona for my parcel with the gorgeous homemade oatcakes and tomato and onion chutney (which I would pay for it is soooo damn good) as well as some lovely baking goodies which will go down a treat.

Can't wait till January

October parcel

Would like to thank Keely Watts for my lovely foodiepenpals parcel this month.  The halloween cupcake cases are just brill and will go down a treat later on when I do some baking.  Hopefully I'll get some pictures on my blog later in the months. 

I also had a bag of plantain chips which are gorgeous, will be off to our Asda to try to track those down.  I haven't tried the Petipie yet so I've got that to look forward too. 

The wild forest honey sounds fabulous and I've got a recipe for honey ice cream which I will be making very soon.  I'll also use some of it the next time I make granola. 

I hope everyone had brill parcels and I'm looking forward to next month already, got lots of ideas for creating a Christmassy feeling foodie gift.

August 2012 - Thanks Tania


As a newbie to the foodie penpal adventure firstly I want to say how fab it is.  It is so nice to get a parcel in the post instead of the "bills" and "junk mail" we normally get. The question is, what did my fab penpal get me for my first ever parcel.

I received some lovely pink cupcake cases which have helped to raise money for breast cancer and will be very useful for the Macmillian coffee morning I'm running at the end of September.  I am sure that my antenatal mums and Mummy friends will enjoy some chocolate cupcakes and hopefully we will raise money for a good cause. 

I also received some lovely chocolates made by Coco & Oliver in Chester, some carrot chutney and Heston's Hot and Sour nuts from Waitrose.  The chocolates were beautiful, a lovely mix of dark and light and I'm looking forward to trying the carrot chutney with a ploughmans at the weekend.  Between us (me and my Hubby) we devoured the nuts within hours of opening them. 

Although i am on my holidays in September, I cannot wait to take part again in October.  Happy penpal parcels everyone
