Giada’s Lasagna Rolls

dsc_7733

If you do not like spinach, do not make these, or else use a different recipe for the filling.  Spinach was definitely the dominant flavor in these, which is not my favorite.  I’m posting the recipe anyway, since I know it’s a good one.  It’s just my particular taste buds…which can vary drastically from yours! […]

Shamrock Shake Cupcakes

It’s only about a week until St. Patrick’s Day, so the buzz right now, as it is this time every year, are the Shamrock Shakes from McDonald’s.  I’ve heard my coworkers talking about this shake lately, so I decided to surprise them with a cupcake version today. I’m not going to type out the recipe, […]

Kung Pao Chicken

Add this to your meal plan for the week.  You will not regret it.  Speaking of meal plans, I’m thinking of adding a page or a link to weekly meal plans I’ve used.  Would this be something you’d like to see on Pennies on a Platter?  It’s only my husband and myself, so if you […]

Parmesan & Thyme Crackers

I made these crackers as an appetizer for the Bachelor finale the other night, then forgot to serve them to the girls.  They were sitting on the table, but I forgot to point them out and serve the cheese with them.  So, here they are still left over in my kitchen.  I had a couple […]

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 […]

*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 […]
