Raspberry Lemon Cupcakes

5466181786_c2046e13fd

It might seem out of season for these cupcakes, but they are so good that I would eat them any time of the year.  I made these for our neighbors’ daughter’s Evening of Elegance event at school.  Her mom actually gave me the idea of lemon cupcakes, to offset her contribution of something chocolaty.  After […]

Penny’s Weekend Garnish

Welcome to a new section of Pennies on a Platter!  I debated on what to title this weekly post, ensuring to capture my purpose for it.  Four sections will be included to finish off each week, hopefully acting as a garnish by embellishing the blog with more recipes and personal insight into my life.  I’ve […]

Sausage and Cheese Balls

The first time I tried sausage and cheese balls was a few years ago in Illinois when we were served these snacks at our church’s small group meeting.  Although I loved them then, for some reason I never asked for the recipe (or maybe I did then forgot to actually follow up and get it).  […]

Chocolate Malt Cupcakes

The Friday before Valentine’s Day our church threw a couples event with 50’s flair, called Dinner at the Diner.  Everyone showed up in their 50’s outfits, some which were quite amazing.  Friends shared their candy cigarettes with us, and there were bubble gum blowing games along with who could hula hoop the longest.  To bring […]

Beef Braised in Red Wine

When I saw this recipe posted on Beantown Baker, I immediately bookmarked it for Valentine’s Day. Unfortunately, Judah was very sick that day and didn’t let me accomplish one thing in the kitchen, so we had romantic take-out instead. But, I was able to make it the day after so all was well. And, very […]

Let’s Get Real…and a Giveaway! – CLOSED

5455548082_b60e2e3021

I have been asked many times by my peers, “How do you do it?”   I’ll say, “do what?”  Then, they will follow up with some sort of “How do you have time to make dinner every night for your family?”  Or, if someone invites us over for dinner, they will make sure to add […]

Creamy Chicken Pockets

I dug this one out of my recipe posts from 2008 because it is a meal we enjoy often and really needs to be brought back to your attention. With the blog aged over 4 years now, there are many recipes lost in the archives that I’d love to re-photograph (is that a word?) and […]

Valentine’s Day is finally here.  What are your plans for tonight?  We’re having dinner in and then heading to the local frozen yogurt shop for their buy one get one free deal.  Yep, I said it.  I’m not making our dessert tonight despite all of the Valentine dessert recipes I’ve been posting!  Tonight, I’m getting […]

White Chocolate Raspberry Heart Cheesecake

I have to apologize (or do I?) for all of the sweets I’ve been posting lately.  When Valentine’s Day approaches each year, I find myself leaning towards desserts more than anything else.  You now know the way to MY heart! I’m guessing there are many of you who would like to save your pennies by […]

Strawberry Valentine Cupcakes

These strawberry cupcakes are not new to Pennies on a Platter.  In fact, they are probably the favorite cupcake in our household.  I first made them a few years ago for Ben’s graduation party where they were a huge hit.  Since then, they have made an appearance in my oven quite a few times.  This […]

This invitation to a virtual party really excited me.  Why?  Because it’s for Annie’s baby shower!  Annie is a food blogging friend at Annie’s Eats who is pregnant with her second child.  It’s a girl!!  Annie and I started blogging around the same time and she’s been an inspiration to me since day one. I […]
