Jeweled White Chocolate Lollies

dsc_5851

This year’s Christmas basket included lollypops, which is a first for me!  I found these in the December/January 2009 issue of Everyday with Rachael Ray.  They added a little healthier flavor with the nuts and raisins.  I’ll be honest, I didn’t even get to eat one as every single lolly needed to be used for […]

Two Toned Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

This was my first attempt at making fudge (if you don’t count this), and I will admit it was very successful!  I loved this fudge and will make it again very soon.  In fact, I’m think of baking again next weekend to make goodies for work.  If I do, this fudge is definitely going to […]

Candy Cane Biscotti

I’m in love with these biscotti.  If I make them for myself, I probably won’t take the time to dip them in the white chocolate and crushed candy canes, because I’ll want to eat them right away instead!  They’re great dipped in coffee or hot cocoa…or even on their own.

A New Addition…

I’m interrupting my posts of Christmas treats to tell you Pennies has an exciting addition coming soon. “Someone” will be joining me in this blog adventure of mine.  No, I’m not pregnant!  (My post will be much more exhilarating when that happens!)  But, stay tuned.  I’m not sure when I’ll unveil the mystery, but it […]

Scottish Shortbread

I wanted to include a variety of tastes in my Christmas boxes this year.  Since I decided to break tradition and not include Pizzelles, I thought these cookies could make up for that sugary cookie taste.  This is my first time making shortbread, or really even eating it (yeah sheltered, I know, right!)  So, I’m […]

Peppermint Chocolate Cookies

My only regret with these cookies is that I didn’t make a double batch!  They were so easy and yummy!  These cookies added such a festive look to my Christmas boxes.  The recipe made exactly 28 perfect cookies for me as it stated in the magazine.  Oh, and by the way, this comes from Rachael […]

‘Tis That Time of Year…

dsc_6049

It’s time to share Christmas cookies!  I spent Saturday and Sunday baking away for my annual Christmas cookie gift boxes.  This year was so much more fun than years’ past.  Could it have something to do with having a Light Box for my photos now?  Or, maybe it’s because I used fun cookies that I […]

Italian Pasta Bake

On Black Friday, my mom, aunt and sisters went to Sam’s Club for their free breakfast, Blu-Ray DVD deals and a new GPS that was on sale.  I decided to pick up the latest Rachael Ray magazine while I was there, because while I was perusing through my mom’s at her house, I saw cookies […]

Cheesy Chicken & Artichoke Dip

I made these appetizers last Monday for our “food day” at work, in celebration of the return of our manager from a medical leave of absence.  If you remember, I also made these brownies to welcome her back. <Back to the talk about the appetizers>  I only made half of the batch of appetizer bites, […]

Penny Pincher: High Five Warehouse

high-five-warehouse1

A new store, called High Five Warehouse, opened last week.  Fortunately for me (and those in my region), it’s located right next to my company. Unfortunately for you, it’s one of only three locations…and all in the Chicago area. Look at the steals I found:
