Tracy is quite new to Foodie Penpals, and I was really thrilled to be matched with her – it was great fun shopping for her. I got a good idea of what to send from our email chats and reading her blog (check out some of my favourite recipes – Salmon and Leek Parcels and Apple Samosas, and Slow Roasted Lamb). Pop on over to Tracy’s blog to see what I sent her.
Holly and I were a late pairing, but, I think, a very successful one. My parcel arrived, and as usual, in my childlike love of receiving parcels, I got straight in!
I have never received home baked goodies in the post before, and I love the salted caramel brownies – Holly’s talents are certainly put to excellent use in her business! I’m looking forward to working my way through this parcel. We have a bake off for charity coming up at work, so I am sure I will get good use out of the cake toppers, and I’m looking forward to making cola icing (maybe with vanilla cupcakes?). The balsamic pearls will be perfect with a salad – I’m a real balsamic fiend and would choose that over any other salad dressing.
I’ve asked Holly for the recipe for the brownies – I may attempt them for the bake off!
