Blogging by Mail!

My BBM Holiday Package! (well, what’s left of it…)
BBM Holiday 06

A couple of days ago, I received my Blogging by Mail package! It was from from a guinea pig with a wok at wok with me (love the name of her blog), whose blog I’d never read before but will definitely begin doing so regularly – she’s got some great-looking recipes there. I can’t believe how amazingly generous she was with the package; the box was absolutely huge!! You can see in the picture that three of the boxes are empty because they’ve been eaten already. ;) “Diddy” (the nickname she goes by on the blog) is originally from China, so many items had a Chinese theme – for example mooncakes, which I’ve heard so much about but never got around to trying (delicious!), flavoured watermelon seeds, and mix for bubble tea (did you know that I love bubble tea?). She also included a box of Buckeyes since she now resides in in the US, as well as a delicious homemade pumpkin roll cake, chocolate covered pretzels and Russian tea cookies (those last three have already been gobbled up). All I can say is WOW!! Thank you so much! It really made my day and tickled every one of my sweet teeth to a major degree. This Blogging by Mail stuff is so much fun, and I can only hope the partner I’ve sent to is half as pleased – no word yet, but stay tuned…


  1. I’m glad everything made it! Hope you enjoyed some of the eastern as well as american treats!! It was a blast being your BBM pal!

  2. Yes, your BBM partner (on the receiving end) is GREATLY pleased! Your box arrived today, in great shape — what wonderful goodies! How ironic that I just sent off to my partner in Buffalo a package that included two pounds of fresh California pistachios! Now I have to go buy some more so I can make your pistachio cardamom cake! Thanks for everything. It’s super!
