Blogging by Mail: My Favorite Things

UPS just dropped off the coolest Blogging by Mail package ever, coming from Dhana of Fresh Kitchen. Outstanding, and I absolutely love everything in the package (as did my husband).

In the package were straws of flavored honey from her local farmer’s market (we can’t wait to try these, probably in a cup of tea or on fresh biscuits), jalapeno chutney from her local market, 70% cacao from Japan (I *love* dark chocolate), delicious homemade cookies (made with orange, coffee, almond, saffron and whole wheat), and probably my most favorite part of all, a bag of kohlapuri masala – a homemade spice mix using an age old family recipe passed on from generation to generation. I think that is so cool, and wish we had a traditional recipe like that in my family. She was kind enough to send a booklet with recipes to use the spice mix in, and I can’t wait to try them out.

Thank you so much for your thoughtful gifts, Dhana – I loved everything! I hope everyone else participating in BBM got as spoiled as I am. And thanks also to Stephanie, who so kindly took on the time-consuming task of hosting this event again. :)

  1. Becke, am so glad you enjoyed the contents of the package! Thank you for the flattering description :) I hope you like the traditional home made masala. Let me know if you try it out !!

  2. I love honey sticks! I get them from a friend who has bees and I eat them like candy. It looks like you got a wonderful package.
