Foodie Pen Pal Reveal!

This month I joined Foodie Pen Pals.  If you haven't heard of Foodie Pen Pals, the details are listed below.  I was paired with Neva Tuzzolino from Phoenix, AZ.  I was so excited to hear from Neva, to learn more about her.  She sent a box of goodies to me-check it out!

Neva learned that I love Italian food so she sent me a bag of veggie pasta (yum, can't wait to try), brown rice pasta and some Mario Batali red sauce.  Also included was some organic dried peanut butter.  I haven't had a chance to do anything with this product yet but I am excited to make something sweet with it!

The item I am most excited about is the Desert Smoke sauce.  Neva adds this sauce to any Mexican dish and even eggs!  I can't wait to try it!

Thank you so much Neva for the box of goodies!  Here are the details if you are interested in participating in Foodie Pen Pal:

-On the 5th of every month, you will receive your pen-pal pairing via email. It will be your responsibility to contact your pen-pal and get their mailing address and any other information you might need like allergies or dietary restrictions.
-You will have until the 15th of the month to put your box of goodies in the mail. On the last day of the month, you will post about the goodies you received from your pen-pal! 
-The boxes are to be filled with fun foodie things, local food items or even homemade treats! The spending limit is $15. The box must also include something written. This can be anything from a note explaining what’s in the box, to a fun recipe…use your imagination!
-You are responsible for figuring out the best way to ship your items depending on their size and how fragile they are. (Don’t forget about flat rate boxes!)
-Foodie Pen-pals is open to blog readers as well as bloggers. If you’re a reader and you get paired with a blogger, you are to write a short guest post for your pen-pal to post on their blog about what you received. If two readers are paired together, neither needs to worry about writing a post for that month. 
-Foodie Pen-pals is open to US, Canadian & European residents.  Please note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only. Same with Europeans. We've determined things might get too slow and backed up if we're trying to send foods through customs across the border from US to Canada and vice versa. 
If you’re from the US or Canada and are in participating for November, please CLICK HERE ( to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions. 
You must submit your information by April 4th as pairings will be emailed on April 5th!
