Foodie Pen Pals

Hi lovelies! Happy Friday! I hope that you all have some fun weekend plans in store! I hope to relax a little after my busy week and spend some time with friends and family. I feel like there has been lots of exciting news going around the blog world, but I wanted to do a special shoutout to Julie at Spinach & Sprinkles who is pregnant! So excited for you!

Another fun thing happening in the blog world is that it’s Foodie Pen Pal reveal day! This is an awesome program created by Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean where each month bloggers and readers are matched up and send their pen pal a box of goodies and a handwritten note. As someone who loves finding new products and getting stuff in the mail, I knew this was going to be an amazing program!

I totally lucked out and Lindsay was my Penpal and sent me all of these goodies:

Everything Lindsay included is so amazing! I’m such a magazine addict so I was so excited for all these new mags chock full of delicious recipes! And speaking of recipes, the bag in the lower right corner is actually the ingredients to make homemade granola bars. I’ve never made my own bars but am so excited to do so with the recipe Lindsey included. The first things to go in my box were the Clif bar (it seriously tastes like a chewy thin mint) and the PopCorners! These gluten free chips are crunchy and delicious and somehow my hand kept finding it’s way back into the bag! I’m also excited to have an Italian feast using the bruschetta (locally made in Ohio where Lindsay lives) and the protein packed, high fiber pasta! And she has me covered in the mornings too with homemade peanut butter (!) and chia seeds for my oatmeal!

After all of that can you see why this is such an incredible program?? If you’d like to see what I sent my pen pal, check out her blog Opened Earth! She and her Husband are vegan and I had a great time trying to find unique vegan items.

  1. Wow! It sure does look like you lucked out with Lindsay as your penpal! I’ve tried the Popcorners chips before and LOVED them! They were the perfect light wheat-free snack for me 🙂

  2. Thank you for the shout out! ❤ Baby H & I feel soooo loved! You're the sweetest, Emily! *hug*
    This box was packed to the brim with goodness! (I'm a magazine junkie too.) Enjoy making your own granola bars- it's fun and totally delicious! Happy Friday! 🙂

  3. Oh my goodness, girl, Lindsay treated you like a princess!! I’m a magazine addict too; each month I eagerly await for the arrival of Cooking Light, Bon Appetit and the Food Network Magazine. When they arrive, I bookmark nearly *every* recipe, but for some reason, I rarely get around to actually making them. :-p I guess I just like looking at the pictures and pretending that my food always looks so pretty. Hehe.

    The homemade peanut butter and homemade granola bar mix sound fantastic! And I LOVE those PopCorners chips!

    Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend relaxing! Hugs! xoxo
