Basic Budget Biscuits

Hey all! I am excited that I am not only unveiling a new look here at Peppers and Pennies, but also my very first series! This recipe for Basic Biscuits is the first installment of my Budget Basics Series. This series will cover a range of affordable, basic recipes that all […]

White Chocolate Cranberry Meringue Square

This post is sponsored by Egg Farmers of Canada as part of their #SimpleCheer campaign. It is way too easy to get caught-up in the hustle and bustle of the Holiday season, isn’t it? Last year,  it was my Husband and I’s first Christmas as a married couple. I eagerly played […]

Chocolate Candy Cane Biscotti

GUYS, IT’S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR! Sorry, I’ll calm down. But seriously, it’s December, there is snow on the ground, there are twinkling lights everywhere and it is socially acceptable to wear plaid every darn day.

Mapo Tofu

What is it about food that brings together family and friends? The older I get the more I realize just how much relationships and food go hand-in-hand. Currently, my social gatherings are more centered around food than ever before. I honestly cannot think of an occasion with friends and family that […]
