November Foodie Pen Pal Reveal

Posted Nov 30 2012 10:13am


This was my first month participating in the Foodie Pen Pals program.  I have to say that it is a genius idea and I honestly wish I had thought of it. This month my pen pal was a lovely girl from Iowa named Madeline.  She sent me some great local items and also the ingredients and a recipe for zero carb gummy candy.

She sent me Happy Joe's Taco Sauce which she says is famous in Iowa.  My husband and I loved it.  It will be our newest addition to taco Tuesday's.  Only 2 net carbs per serving.

Next, there was Boetje's stone ground dutch mustard. SO delicious.  It tastes like dijon mixed with horseradish.  It is the perfect amount of spiciness. I have been eating it on my turkey, bacon, avocado wraps.
Less than 1 net carb per serving.

She also sent me a jar of Peake apple salsa.  It is from her family orchard.  I had never even heard of apple salsa before.  It was delicious.  Not too spicy and with a hint of sweetness.  Only 1 net carb per serving.

I thought it was such a great idea that she put the ingredients for zero carb gummy candy and wrote up the recipe for me.  It was such a nice touch.

A great big thank you to Madeline!
