End of the Rainbow Fruit Salad

I love celebrating babies.  Today, a few other food bloggers and I are throwing a virtual baby shower for our friend, Jessica, from Sunny Side Up.  She is a food blogging friend who I had the privilege to meet two years ago while attending a food conference in San Francisco.  We met up at the […]

Introducing “Seeded at the Table” and Features

It’s been a little over a month now since I rebranded away from Pennies on a Platter and launched as Seeded at the Table.  Can I tell you how appreciative I am of all of you?  Many of my readers have stuck with me through the transition and I can’t thank you enough!!  The weekend […]

In recent posts, I slightly teased you with little mentions of upcoming changes to Pennies on a Platter.  Today I am finally ready to tell you exactly what is happening behind the scenes […]

Lighter Fare to Ring in the New Year!


We are still in the middle of packing and moving, but next week I should be back in the kitchen cooking up a storm in my new surroundings.  (Can’t wait!)  This doesn’t mean I’ll be focusing on only healthy and lighter recipes (sorry, NFL playoff season is here) but I can leave you with this […]

Your Top 12 Favorites of 2012


For the last two years, I’ve posted a round-up of your top ten favorite recipes.  This year, I saw many other bloggers sharing their top twelve for 2012, so I thought I’d give you the extra two, as well!  But, first, let’s talk about my year aside from recipes and blogging.  We moved in January […]

What’s in MY…??


I’m on vacay people!  Yay!  So today, I am leading you over to my friends, Kristan and Shelly’s, site where you can snoop around the contents of my purse.  Yes, you heard me right.  Go ahead, snoop around! Back on Friday with a dessert you won’t want to miss! 

Shaved Asparagus and Carrot Salad with a Creamy Citrus Dressing


There’s not much to say about this one.  The other week’s Shaved Asparagus Pizza inspired me to incorporate my leftover shaved asparagus into a salad.  I also had carrots on hand, so I thought “why not give them a little shave, too?”  I then piled the ribbons over top a handful of lettuce, drizzled with […]

St. Patrick’s Day Recipes


I’m on my way out of town for the weekend.  Although I wasn’t compelled to make any new St. Patrick’s Day recipes this year, you can always refer to past years’ recipes that I love. Have a great weekend!  And, don’t forget to wear green tomorrow! (Thanks to my friend, Rebekah, for the Saint Patrick’s […]

Your Top 10 Favorites of 2011


This year was a whirlwind for us, as we started settling into our new home in Southern California only to find out we are moving once again across the country.  Our short time here in California was a memorable one.  We explored the many options this sunny state has to offer such as Disneyland, San […]

Pause for Prayer for a Friend


I’ve mentioned before that in the (almost) five years I’ve been blogging, I’ve developed friendships with other bloggers where even though we might not have met in real life, they still are special friends in which I hold a tender place in my heart.  There is an immediate bond with other bloggers about our common […]

Foodbuzz, Friends and Fanatics


Hello from San Francisco!  I’m at my first ever food blogging conference with Foodbuzz and having oh-so-much fun! Jessica and I met up in Oakland and headed to our hotel with our spectacular view.  (That is, if you think that a tempting view of shopping is spectacular.) I’ve met so many blogging friends… …and got […]

Lindy’s Scones Giveaway – CLOSED


Tell me if you’ve heard this as many times as I have in the last week:  “I can’t believe it’s almost November!”  And now it’s actually arrived.  Halloween is over and it is time to start thinking (if you haven’t already) about the holidays.  Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner.  Are you ready? […]

DIY Craft: Burlap Fall Wreath


It’s not food related, but I had to share.  Lately, I’ve been finding myself getting a little more crafty in other areas beside the kitchen.  This was a fall project I had bookmarked from Pinterest.  Instead of spending $30+ for a fall wreath for my front door, I spent about $15 by making one myself.  […]

Twenty of My Favorite Recipes Book Giveaway – CLOSED


As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I was supplied a gift card to try out Walgreens Photo Center.  I already use their same-day online photo printing, so I took the opportunity to create a product from their photo gift options instead.  Because of all of their options – from personalized photo mugs, calendars, mouse […]

Where Were You That September Day?


I remember.  I was in college, prepping for an Accounting exam that morning.  One of my suite-mates came out of her room and told us to turn on the TV.  We were shocked, devastated, scared, confused.  Class wasn’t canceled.  I walked out of my dorm room and across the Bison Square, with the eerie yet […]

Back to School Giveaway: Peeled Snacks (CLOSED)


My little sister, Rachelle, returned back to school yesterday.  She’s now a senior in high school.  I-can’t-believe-it!  Even though she is 14 years younger than me and lives on the other side of the country, we still have a close relationship along with my other sister who is 2 years older than me (yes, poor […]
