About Peppers & Pennies

Welcome to Peppers & Pennies!

Peppers & Pennies is a cooking blog focused on creating home cooked classics and comfort food on a small budget. Beyond that, the recipes featured are that of an accessible palette and are sure to please picky eaters and self-proclaimed foodies alike.

I cook from scratch and enjoy the process. I believe that a home cook can do so much with very little, but they must not be afraid to invest a little time and effort into the process. You’ll thank me later.


The brains behind the site is me, Amanda.

I am a newlywed living in Winnipeg, Manitoba. I work as a Systems Analyst for a Big 4. When I am not behind a computer screen sipping tea or cooking-up a storm in my kitchen you can find me cuddling on the couch with my dog, Layla or researching my next budget trip.

I hope you enjoy my creations. Please feel free to comment, share and test these recipes out! I would love to hear how they treat your taste buds and wallet!

Happy cooking,

Amanda
