Foodie Swap

A few of us on a Facebook group arranged to do a foodie swap just before Christmas. The budget was £20. I went a bit over but not as much as my swap partner Laura....

She made delicious homemade goodies for me putting my swap parcel to shame! (I'm going to do what I know best and make her a beauty hamper in January).

I was totally blown away by her kindness. Everything is amazing!

Onto the contents:

Individually wrapped teapigs teabags - chocolate flake, camomile, peppermint, lemon & ginger, lemongrass, superfruit, Roobis creme caramel and winter spice


Cantuccini, White chocolate spoons which you melt into hot milk!, marshmallows on sticks with toppings, Oreo Truffles (to die for), Gingerbread star cookies (which were delicious), Christmas Pretzels, Citrus Rosemary Salt, Bacon Jam, Savory Herb Salt Rub, Chipotle Cilantro Butter, Vanilla Sugar, Chilli & Lime Salt, Vin D'Orange Aperitif, Clementine Brown Sugar Mixer (for Old Fashioned), Cranberry Clove Mixer (for having with a glass of fizz), Vanilla Essence, Mulled Wine sachets and wine, Hazelnut Rocky Road Brownies in a jar, Chocolate Chip Fudge Cookies in a jar, Red Grapefruit marmalade x 2 jars

My Favourite Recipes book, Guess the gins #1, #2, #3 (with a prize for the correct answers!), Edinburgh Gin Spiced Orange, pretty mug with nespresso capsules, Deans Oat Biscuits with Stem Ginger, Deans Cheese Oat Nibbles extra Mature Cheddar and Chilli, Willies Cacao Ginger and Lime and candy canes.
