Penny Pincher: Eat Lunch

img_01671

I know what you’re thinking.  “Eat lunch!?  That’s the tip you have for me today, Penny!? I eat lunch every day and it doesn’t save me any money!” Okay, okay… let me explain, before you throw an even bigger fit! My blog hit 100,000 visitors this week.  No, I didn’t receive 100,000 hits just in […]

Cookies ‘n Cream Ice Cream

5633693418_3fe951eab0

*Updated 4/22/11 with new picture, title and tightened recipe. This is the creamiest ice cream I’ve made so far.  It is also my favorite I’ve made and I plan to make it over and over and over again.  But, that might also be because I love Oreos! I found this recipe at Culinary Cory and […]

The Final Rose Fruit Pizza

Last  night, my girlfriends and I watched 4 hours of the Bachelor finale.  The six of us girls watched the season together, but not on Mondays as it was aired.  Instead, we watched it recorded on Tuesdays.  However, the finale was 3 hours on Monday and then an additional hour on Tuesday.  So, we watched […]

Cheesy Chicken “Ben-chiladas”

dsc_6707

I love that Annie’s husband’s name is Ben, too, so that I can also use the name “Ben-chiladas” for this recipe.  You’ll see over at Annie’s Eats that this is one of her “go-to” recipes, so I decided to finally give it a try.  I actually made this about two months ago and forgot to […]

Chicken, Mushrooms and Artichoke Hearts with Cheese Tortellini in a Light Lemon Butter Sauce

dsc_7529

Is that the longest recipe title you’ve ever seen?  I saw this recipe originally at Lauren’s Kitchen, where she condensed the title to “Chicken with Artichokes & Other Stuff.” She found it at Delicious Meliscious where it’s titled “Chicken, Mushrooms and Artichoke Hearts with Cheese Tortellini.”  I was cracking up at the variations of the […]

Key Lime Coconut Cake

My friend, Stephanie, was out of town for a few days at a wedding in Costa Rica… lucky girl!  So, her husband, Brian, decided to invite Ben and a few other guys over for dinner and Rock Band. I thought that since Brian was making the guys dinner, the least I could do was send […]

Quick Fix: Spinach Salad with Cranberries, Mandarin Oranges & Pecans

dsc_7536

The title of this post pretty must sums up the recipe. We were invited for dinner at our friends’ the other night. I asked what I could bring. She told me ‘nothing’ and, of course, I insisted, so she said ‘salad’. She mentioned she was making pork, so I asked some gals on a cooking […]

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup & Curry Condiments

dsc_7491

This is another recipe from the book I received from my sister for Christmas, Barefoot Contessa’s Back to Basics. It’s title is a little funny to me because I wouldn’t say that all the recipes inside are that basic.  At the same time, they are not at all difficult.  Did I just contradict myself? I […]

Chocolate Milkshake

dsc_7269

If you’ve been with Pennies for a while, you may remember a special guest writer, by the name of Ben…aka… my dear husband.    Do you remember what he wrote about?  You guessed it..milkshakes!  He thinks he’s a milkshake connoisseur and I have to admit I think it’s adorable. For Valentine’s Day this year, I […]

Basic Chocolate Ice Cream

dsc_7283

It was another warm day yesterday, so I thought it would be fitting to post another ice cream recipe.  Maybe I’m getting too excited for Spring.  I made this chocolate ice cream last week so I could make milkshakes for me and Ben.  (That was just a HUGE hint to my next post tomorrow!)  But, […]
