This month my foodie penpal was Amber. The stuff she mailed was awesome. This was the first time I received FRESHLY baked goods! I love it when I get a note telling me why they sent particular items and how I can use them. Amber sent me a chocolate chip banana bread that, as she explained, her family loves to eat with peanut butter. She sent me a loaf of the bread with a little packet of Peanut Butter & co’s Dark Chocolate Dream. Spread on that banana bread….so good. The fiancee helped me out with the banana bread…had a hard time keeping within the weightwatchers points with that.
She also sent some pure maple syrup and apple butter that are locally made in a nearby town. I love it when I’m sent local items from my penpal’s home town. It adds such a sweet touch.
Thanks to Amber for the goodies! So thoughtful!

Pretty neat experience. Joined FoodiePenpals and was matched up with Lindsey (@simplyshep) and Jill @eatingpath2yoga (my recipient). Patiently awaited the arrival of this mysterious package. Invited my sister over the day that I opened it up….so exciting! Here are a few photos of my April gifts. Lindsey sent me some pretty healthy snacks!
I also got a pretty great recipe from Lindsey. So cute.
Lindsey’s Oatmeal Recipe:
1/3 cup rolled oats
Can’t wait to find out who my May foodiePenpals will be 🙂
