Behind the Scenes


If you are anything like me, you love to learn more about the author behind the blog.  Today, I’m giving you just that. (By the way, my bestie bought me that apron.  I love it and love her for giving it to me!!)

Meet my family:
My husband, Ben, is the person I adore most in my life. He encourages me every day and is the biggest supporter of Pennies on a Platter.  Plus, he is the best guinea pig ever!  In other words, before we were married he probably could tighten that belt at least one more hole! 🙂

Judah, my precious son, is the joy of our lives.   Since he is only 3 months old, I don’t get to cook for him, yet.  But, I am SO looking forward to it!


Ever wonder what my surroundings look like while I’m cooking or baking?  Take a peek into my kitchen…

Kitchen 1

The best thing about my kitchen is how bright and cheery it is!

Here’s my comfortable workspace (where I’m sitting at this moment while I’m typing this post)!  🙂

Thanks for reading my blabbering every day!  Now, I want to read more about YOU.  Tell me, what is YOUR favorite thing about your kitchen?  Do you  have a food blog to share?

  1. Aww, you have a beautiful family and home! I’m jealous that you have an actual workspace for blogging…how nifty and organized it is!! Are those bobbleheads of you guys on the top that I see? way cool if they were!!!!!!!

  2. What a cute kitchen! I love posts like this…it’s always so nice to get to know people through their food blogs! I’m super jealous of all the awesome natural light in your kitchen!! And what a sweet family – my hubby’s belt has definitely gotten tighter in the 3 1/2 years we’ve been married! 🙂 Husbands make the best guinea pigs!

  3. I do enjoy learning about the bloggers behind the blogs I read. 🙂 Heh, Judah makes great faces, infants are such fun.

    My favorite thing about my kitchen? Hm… well, it’s not quite as small as my last one…

  4. Your kitchen looks gorgeous! I wish mine had more natural light, but I love how much counter space I have, especially compared to our last house.

  5. Thanks for the tour!

  6. What an adorable family! This was a fun post 🙂

  7. Well, my current kitchen is in my college apartment and therefore tiny. But I have tons of storage and I like that.
    Back home, I love that I know where everything is 🙂 And that I have almost everything I need, equipment wise, to bake whatever I want – courtesy of mi madre :). I am slowly building my own kitchen, though, which makes me happy and excited!

  8. Thanks for the tour and enjoy your blog! Best thing abou my kitchen is that hubby helped me paint it the color I wanted to, burnt orange, even though he wasn’t a fan.

  9. Great post idea… I love finding out more about the author. You have a beautiful family and I love your kitchen. I have definitely outgrown my current kitchen – I have to store extra pans and appliances in the spare room closet – but the best thing about it is the pantry closet, it has double doors so its very easy to find everything.

  10. great post! cute family!

  11. Thanks for sharing a peek into your kitchen… maybe I’m obsessed but I like to see that kitchens are kept clean, and I do like how much light you have in there! I am always looking for new recipe ideas, so I too have a recipe blog that I’ve started to share what I make in hopes that people will share with me too. Thanks for sharing!

  12. Such a great post! Love your bright and cheery kitchen. I may totally have to steal this idea!

  13. I have the same kitchen cabinets and hanging fruit and vegetable rack that you guys do 🙂 My favorite thing about my kitchen is that it opens onto 4 other rooms, so I can always be part of the action while I’m cooking. You have a beautiful home and family (and apron!!)

  14. You kitchen is very cheery! We renovated our kitchen last summer and it is SO MUCH better than it was. My fav part is actually my new sink and faucet. It’s the one thing I obsessed about the least even. That and my spice rack. And of course my new appliances!

  15. I just found your blog, and I have to say that I’m incredibly jealous of your kitchen! My current kitchen is an improvement over what I had a couple years ago, and so far, it’s working. I’m slowly remaking it, one appliance at a time!

  16. Hey gal,
    Enjoyed your pics! Judah looks just like his daddy! I really enjoy your recipes and admire you for all you the balls you keep in the air. Good luck with the transition into working mom! There are a lot of things I would change in my kitchen, but I rent also, so not much I can do about that. One thing I really love is the stainless steel prep table I got from Target. It has made such a big difference in my kitchen work. There’s a wire shelf underneath that provides much needed storage space and plenty of room on top for chopping and mixing and all sorts of prep work. I love making bread or pie dough directly on the table!

  17. Beautiful family! I stumbled upon this blog and think it is so adorable!! Looking forward to more blogs!

  18. I’m so happy I found a new food blog to give me recipes and ideas. Nice to meet you and your family. Your apron is very classy! Love it. Your kitchen space is very bright and cheery. I look forward to reading more of your posts.

  19. What a fun kitchen! My kitchen is large and right in the center of our home; open to everything, which is sometimes not so good considering all the dishes I go through from cooking so much! My kitchen is a little too “fancy” I like how cheery and simple your is; nice job! Great food photos too. I’m just getting into this whole food blogging thing and have found that photography goes hand in hand. Mine are a work in progress!
