Weekend Update: #FoodiePenpals

So I don’t normally update on the weekends, but because I’ve been so behind on posts, I’m making an exception.
First up, what I’ve been eating!!!


Unperfected paleo chocolate chip cookies, paleo fudgsicles, for the boy: tarragon and white wine shrimp with linguine, and for me: tarragon and white wine clams with bacon over spaghetti squash.
Tasty stuff!

Also been working on more book promo stuff, and today we filmed three more episodes of Cook for your Chemistry.

If haven’t watched the latest episode for cauliflower fried rice, be sure to visit the site and check that out.

Now for the real reason I’m posting today: Foodie Penpals.


Jana sent me an AMAZING package given my somewhat difficult preferences and requests. Since she is a nurse, Jana knows some fun nutrition stuff, which is PERFECT for my myriad of issues. She sent some awesome looking smoked sea salt (great for my electrolyte deficiency and low blood pressure) that came with an artichoke recipe that I can’t wait to try. She also sent some lemon lime flavoring for sparkling water, which is my fave flavor. Those Mary’s Gone Crackers are to die for; ate some with my cayenne majestic garlic spread the other night and it really hit the spot. The white ginger tea is lovely; delicate and flavorful at the same time. And one of my favorite snacks: popcorn! I’m thinking the salt will be good on that as well 🙂
Thanks Jana!

PLUS, if you want in on the foodie penpal action, here’s the info:

-On the 5th of every month, you will receive your penpal pairing via email. It will be your responsibility to contact your penpal 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 penpal!
-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 Penpals 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 penpal 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 Penplas is open to US & Canadian residents. Please note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only. 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 interested in participating for July, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions.

You must submit your information by July 4th as pairings will be emailed on July 5th!
