Foodie Penpals: February and March 2014






Hello all! Sorry I’m so damn late with both these posts, but between work, buying a house, being ill and training I honestly have no idea where the past couple of months have gone. Apologies to my lovely penpals who sent me these delicious selections – I’m not usually this haphazard in posting FPP stuff.

So, February’s package came from the lovely Drea Lee, who sent me a lovely Udon Noodle kit, along with some interesting chillies (which I’ve yet to try) and 3 fruit and nut ‘snack shots’ – all of which were great. I haven’t been able to find the snack-shots up here yet, but may have a crack at making my own 🙂

And the most recent package came from the lovely Steph H at Tubontherun for my March package of sweet goodies! Funnily enough all of it (except some of the spread) is now gone… The spread is great stuff and I’ve used it in baking too as a refined sugar substitute, and it’s worked really well.

If you fancy joining in the UK Foodie Penpals scheme hop on over to and the lovely Carol Anne will hook you up 🙂
