In celebration of getting into Babble’s top 100 mom food bloggers, I made a new, long overdue Pennywise Platter picture. Thanks, dear readers for your support! If you haven’t already, check out this week’s giveaway, Madeon: Lotion Bars.
It’s time to share your frugal and nourishing tips and recipes! Where do you shop for quality food at a lower price? What recipe saves a penny? How do you balance a budget with nourishing food? Share here.
Please read through the three simple rules for those participating. This helps keep the quality of our carnival. Please read them through before linking and thanks again for your continued participation.
1) No linking to giveaways or promotions for affiliates or sponsors. One thing that I’ve noticed increasingly on Pennywise Platter is that I am getting more and more promotional pieces for affiliates or sponsors and a lot of giveaways. I’ve decided to keep Pennywise less “commercial” and more in tune with the spirit of the carnival by not allowing these links anymore. There was nothing wrong with those of you who linked to them, I just think that it will protect the integrity of our carnival better without them. Plus, it makes our links valuable in the future as well. A link to a giveaway three months old isn’t going to be worth browsing in three months time, but a link to a recipe for a frugal soup would be. I will be deleting any giveaway links or promotional links.
2) Keep the ingredients “nourishing”, such as whole grains, meats, vegetables, legumes, unrefined salt and sugars, chicken, etc. I am not going to be an ingredient police every week, but if there is a link to a post that is obviously not filling any of the criteria for healthy (for example, a white flour, white sugar birthday cake), I will delete that link. However, feel free to post vegetarian, vegan, raw, low-carb, etc.
3) Link back to the carnival This is common carnival courtesy. And more then that, it helps build the community of the carnival as you are sending your readers to others participating. And please, as a blogger, check out other’s posts and leave a comment! I know that we would all love to hear from each other.
How to link up to your post? Read below.
Using the Mr. Linky, link back to your specific post, not just your blog.

I like the new picture! Congratulations!
Dandelion season is just around the corner here in PA so I thought I’d share some of my favorite things to do with them.
Our new favorite treat: Rice Pudding! Especially creamy and delicious with coconut milk. Mmmm…….
Congrats, Kimi! 🙂
These are 2 versions of granola that are absolutely delicious and healthy for you! Want to start the day on a full tank of gas? This is where to start!
LeAnne @ The Purposed Heart
Thanks for hosting Kimi! I am sharing my Garlic Carrot Potatoes. They are a delicious, seasonal recipe that everyone will love. Congratulations on your recognition – I love the new picture! -LeAnne
Asha @ Meta Mom
I’m excited about the dandelion recipes. I have a recipe for cultured butter (from raw milk) hope you enjoy!
I linked to recipes for braised short ribs and honey mustard mayonnaise. I also linked to an article about starting seeds for the garden.
The new picture is great! Thanks!
Even though fajita leftovers don’t last very long at our house, we make Fajita Salad every chance we get…and the Cilantro Lime dressing is great too!
I’d also love to comment on the Q & A on sugar consumption, but the comments section doens’t appear to be open!
Stephanie, I have no idea why it was down earlier! Sorry about that! It’s open now. 🙂
Danielle @ Analytical Mom
I am transitioning from canned beans to dried and shared my experiences today. Thank you so much for hosting!
I hope you enjoy my almond flour cookies. They are incredibly delicious and decadent, I really do love them! You can also try them raw by drying them in the dehydrator. SO good!
I like the new picture. I’m sharing a recipe for spiced almonds 2 ways. Hope you enjoy.
Elizabeth (Frying Solo)
Congratulations! This week I’m sharing a broccoli recipe that can be dressed up or down in a myriad of ways. Thank you for hosting!
This is my first entry in a carnival. It’s a lot of fun 🙂
Michelle @ On and Off My Plate
Interesting question on sugar…before I started blogging about food, I would never make or have sweets in the house…I joined a few cooking groups and all of a sudden, two or three times a week I was making the sweet stuff. So much consumption that I gained very unwanted pounds so we are back to clean eating (no sweets again) and using agave for tea (husband). Thanks so much for hosting.
Andrea (Andreas Kitchen)
Happy Thursday! I am sharing my recipe for Beef Mushroom Soup. It tastes really good the first night but it’s even better the next day!
Thanks for hosting!
Hi Kimmi! Hope you are having a wonderful day! It is bright and sunny here and still wicked freezing! I can’t wait to feel the warmth of the summer sun. Linking up a great side dish recipe from Bittman, rice pilaf! All the best, alex
It’s my first time posting in a carnival. 🙂 I posted a recipe for Spicy Potato Soup. It’s a family favorite and is very budget friendly.
Shu Han@ Mummy I can cook
Pork belly is in my opinion, one of the yummiest cut of meat, yet it’s so cheap! Enjoy my Marco Pierre White adapted version, there are some videos of the results too 😉
Wardeh @ GNOWFGLINS
Congratulations on the blog award, Kimi! 🙂
jenna Food WIth Kid Appeal
love the new photo! i updated some recipes to make a healthy birthday menu plan post. sharing the oven fry revision here.
Dana @ Budget Dietitian
Congrats Kimi!! 🙂
I love the new photo!
Another dessert-like (but healthy) oatmeal. This one is based on a Southern cake that is full of pineapple, banana, and pecans.
Thought this was fascinating and someone else might like to see it- he uses every part of the duck. Very frugal idea in itself- to use EVERYTHING! 🙂 Also very nourishing and traditional.
Oh- found the recipes too- and every one looks flavorful, traditional and natural
Okay, enough from me. 🙂
Hopefully better late than never! I posted a “Mayo-less” coleslaw for all of us who love the tasty ingredients of coleslaw minus the flavor of mayo. I justed Greek yogurt instead and it turned out simply delicious! I hope you enjoy.
The Naked Kitchen
I love the new photo!! Thank you for changing it! I don’t even know what that other picture was of, I think you posted it before my time. 🙂 Anyway yay. Looks good.
I just found your food carnival. I love your blog. Your photos are always very artistic!
Thank you! Thank you for the new picture, and thank you for doing Pennywise Platter! I suspect that I’m part of the reason you started these up, but I didn’t have the guts to tell you that the old picture was completely unappetizing. This new photo is so much better. 😀 I’m not sure why that makes a difference, but it does. So thanks!
