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

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, […]

Chinese Sundaes

dsc_7306

My coworker introduced me to this meal.  When she first told me about it, I thought she was crazy.  The mixture of ingredients just didn’t sound right.  After she told me that a friend introduced it to her and many of her friends have tried it and loved it, then it piqued my interest and […]

Homemade Bagels

dsc_7356

Ben has been on a bagel sandwich kick lately, so I thought “why not save money and make these bagels since I already have everything on hand?” He makes himself a bagel sandwich for lunch every day, which is nice because since I have to be at work at 6 am (eeks!) I don’t really […]

Cinnamon French Toast

dsc_7344

We had some leftover country bread that needed to be used soon or it would go bad.  I toyed with the idea of making bread pudding, but instead, had a craving for french toast this morning. So, I whipped up this quick and easy recipe..and I can guarantee you’ll have everything on hand.  And, if […]
