I took part in A Cuppa Kim's 2013 Mug Swap this year, and it was such a cool experience, I'm already looking forward to next year!

Full disclosure here:  I think I did it wrong.  She had mentioned in the rules that we could send along little treats to go along with the mug, but I didn't think much of it, and just sent the mug. . .and then I got a lovely package from Krissa at More Than Mundane and felt SO BADLY that all I'd sent was a mug.  I'm sorry!  I'll do better next year!

Krissa sent me a great pack with the super pretty mug, some tea and other goodies.  I've tried two of the teas (The mint and the cherry) and they were really great.  (Krissa had no way of knowing cherry-flavored things are my favorite, but they are!)

It was so great taking part in this swap, and I can't wait to do it again!

As for recipes, the rest of the What Katie Ate recipes are forthcoming.  We've got an instance where lemons almost ruined my life (again) and a great chicken wing recipe!
