Yay! Time for another reveal. I participated for the second month in a row Food Penpals through The Lean Green Bean. This month I got paired with two awesome ladies. Generally speaking you only are paired with one awesome person but the first person I emailed didn’t respond within the 72 hour time frame so I was reassigned but then I did receive an email back so I decided to send to both of them and therefore got two awesome boxes!
First up is Ronda, from South Carolina! She writes at Kitchen Dreaming, check it out for some awesome recipes!
I am so ready to head out to South Carolina! Fried peanuts, peach jelly and a local cookie she made called Bennies that she sent the recipe for. Yum!
Next up is Nicole, from SoCal-an area I know well, having lived there throughout my life and constantly visiting.
Among the local products, she sent California raisins (anyone remember the California Raisins from the ’80’s and 90’s? Are they still around?) and almonds from her uncle’s farm North of Los Angeles, how cool is that! She also sent Herbs D’Provence which I love using on chicken and haven’t had any for awhile!
