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.

Hi Kimi, thanks for hosting. I’ve shared a roast cauliflower and pumpkin soup with spicy cheese cookies, and a mandarin salad. Enjoy.

Um, those all sound amazing! Especially the soup. I love cauliflower and pumpkin. 🙂

Just stumbled on this for the first time, the recipes look fabulous!

I am sharing my recipe for Homemade Baking Powder. If you are corn free, or looking to avoid aluminum…check it out!
Thank you for hosting. I’m a new follower, and this hop will be found on a page on my site that lists more than 200 hops… some for each day of the week. Check under the header for the link to that page.
I hope you’ll visit me soon and follow back!

This is a 4 star recipe at our home. The ginger is healing and gives a nice “sweet” flavor to the dish.

Hi! Thanks for hosting! I finally made it over on Thursday for a change. 🙂
This week I’m sharing an EASY 4 ingredient chocolate mousse & the love story of how I met my hubby.
Have a GREAT week!!

Thank you for hosting again! This week I’ve created a variation on red beans and rice, a frugal and nutritious staple.
Hello there! Today I’m sharing a few recipes using some of our favorite ingredients, strawberries and rhubarb. Jam, sauce and a refreshing soda… yum!
It’s Spring and the rhubarb is ready for eating so I am sharing a Rhubarb Cream Tart using all natural ingredients.
Gumbo Z’herbs, a spring tonic or Lent classic. This version follows the Catholic prescript of no meat, but is packed with greens. The recipe is also quite flexible, so feel free to substitute other greens than what I used. If you forage for your own, it’s extremely affordable but even cabbage isn’t too pricey.
I posted a recipe for delicious Quinoa Summer Salad!
First time contributing!
I shared Ricotta Muffins, which I made for the first time on Tuesday. They used up leftover ricotta so it didn’t go moldy in the fridge, are super filling, and keep really well.
Thanks for hosting. Today I linked up a post about planning for storage crops. Now is the time to plant (for many of us) to eat from your garden all year round. Many crops can store without freezing or canning, making them an easy and inexpensive way to stretch your food budget.
Alfredo Sauce is the perfect backdrop for just about anything, this recipe includes adding Cedar Plank Grilled Chicken. Thank you for hosting!
I’m sharing my Carob Coconut Bites, which are very nourishing and relatively frugal, especially if you buy your ingredients in bulk!

Happy Thursday Kimi! I am sharing my recipe for Cinnamon Tea Cookies. This recipe is gluten free, but it can be made with “regular” flour if you don’t have issues with gluten.
Thanks for hosting!

I haven’t had time to peruse this week’s links but already I see some serious yumminess. Thanks for hosting every week! This week I am bringing kid-friendly pate to the party, and while it is ugly it is delicious. See you later!
Here’s a recipe for the crockpot:
Thanks for hosting! I shared my happy accident of concocting a real-foods version of that unmistakable taste of KFC gravy!
I’ve shared a couple of inexpensive and healthy bean recipes! Thanks for hosting!
