White Chocolate Chex Mix


This recipe comes from a new dear friend of mine from church, we’ll call her “C”.  C and I were asked to coordinate the food for a big weekend church event.  This was the first time I helped coordinate such a big occasion, but C had done it many times, so I was able to […]

Snack-o’-Lantern Fruit Cups


When I saw this recipe in a magazine at my mom’s house, I knew it would be perfect for our annual pumpkin carving party. Since I already had a few desserts planned, I needed something healthier – like fruit! These were fun and easy to carve. But, I think it was even more fun to […]

Pumpkin Dip


This is the first recipe I made out of my homemade pumpkin puree.  We had our 5th annual BYOP (Bring Your Own Pumpkin) party this weekend and this was a dish I served.  Since I was making quite a few other things, this was a nice quick recipe to throw together.  The original recipe suggests […]

Pumpkin Puree


I’m addicted to pumpkin puree.  Maybe it’s the pregnancy, maybe it’s not.  But, I had a hard time reserving this pumpkin puree as an ingredient for my recipes rather than just eating it straight.  The texture is so smooth and I can not wait to make this as baby food next Fall. Making your own […]

Healthy Egg, Cheese & Turkey Bacon Breakfast Sandwich


This summer, for the 4th of July weekend, we visited our good friends (M & D) in Nashville, TN.   I went to college in Nashville, so BG and I make a trip down there at least once a year to visit my best friends from college.  M was one of my college roomies and D […]

Pennies on a Platter is Looking Better than Ever!


Pennies on a Platter is back!  And, with a new design!  Thanks to Delicious Design Studios for working with me on putting together exactly what I envisioned for this redesign.  Do you like it?  I do! You might be asking, “Where have you been this whole summer”, and “What has been keeping you so occupied […]

Okay, Here’s the Real Reason I’m Gone


So, this is the real reason for the lack of blog posts.  I’m sure most of you have suspected already!   I really wanted to bake something cute to make the announcement on my blog, but I have to admit, I’m still not up for being in the kitchen.  What’s worse, is even the thought […]

I’m Still Absent, And You’re Probably Still Hungry


That’s probably the face you’re giving me right now.  Eating your regular ol’ spaghetti, waiting for me to finally post some new delicious recipes.  Wondering where the heck I’ve gone!  (That’s my little sister, by the way.  Isn’t she a cutie?  She’s even more beautiful when she’s actually smiling!) So, I know I have not […]

A Little Absent…Back Soon!


I’ve been gone for a few days, visiting my sister in Colorado where I have very little time to blog.  I’ll be back very soon, though, with some delicious recipes!  In the meantime, here is a photo of a sinfully decadent dessert I had the first night I arrived in Denver…at a restaurant called Casa […]

Snappy Chicken Satay


Spring weather is finally arriving.  Time to make regular use of the grill again.  This was one of the first meals from our grill this season.  It is easy and fantastic! (The original recipe says to grill for only 1 minute on each side, but I do not see how that is possible.) Snappy Chicken […]
