OSI – Erin of Prudence Pennywise

This week’s host is Erin of Prudence Pennywise.
In her bio, she describers herself as “a fun loving girl, given to flights of fancy and spontaneous purchases. Really. But when it comes to grocery shopping, my alter ego (Prudence Pennywise) takes over. I want the freshest ingredients at the best prices, which I use to create healthful, beautiful, fast (who has time?), delicious meals. My goal is to feed my family of four scandalously good food on about $100 a week. Get ready to save some pennies!” Her goodies look fabulous!!

Erin has selected Sweet Potato Biscuits for this week’s TWD post.

Let’s all get to know a bit about her and then head over to her blog and show some TWD love!




1. When did you begin baking?

One of my most distinctive memories is rolling out sugar cookie dough with my mother on my second birthday.

2. When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Always a mother, but at various times a belly dancer, a pirate, and a world famous actress.

3. What has been your favorite TWD recipe so far?

I can’t stop making the world peace cookies, but I’ve also had some late night cravings for butterscotch pudding of late.


4. What TWD recipe has been a dud for you?

The buttery jam cookie was the only recipe that had to be deep sixed.

5. What recipe are you dying to make that no one has picked yet?

All in one holiday bundt cake, pretty please.

6. What one item in the kitchen could you never live without?

One item…. I love my chef’s knife, but then I’d also need my cutting board. And if I’m being absolutely truthful, I can’t make it one day without ice.  I’m an inveterate ice-chomper.


7. Give us three adjectives to describe yourself.

Frantic, Blithe, Hungry

8. What super-power would you most like to have, and why?

If I could manage on little to no sleep, I think I could just about accomplish every needful thing.

9. If you had a day to yourself, no distractions, what would you do?

It would have to involve r eading, crossword puzzles, and baking with my two little ones.


10. If you could live anywhere in the world for a year, where would it be?

Isle of Guernsey

11. If you knew could you try anything, and not fail (and money was no object), what would you attempt?

I’d love to publish a cookbook.  Working on it now.

12. What meal and dessert would you choose to be your very last?

Grilled Steak Tacos with Guacamole and Pico De Gallo. Buttermilk Brownies for Dessert.


13. What is the “strangest” food you ever eaten?

I lived in South America for a couple of years, and there I ate hooves, livers, and hearts.  Shudder, convulsion, wretching.  I try not to think about it.

14. What spice do you use over and over again?

Chili Powder.

15. Offer up one random, little known factoid about yourself.

I’m the middle child in a family of ten children.



Note: I, (Jeannette @ The Whimsical Cupcake) will be heading the Q&A portion of TWD every week. IF YOU ARE AN OCTOBER HOST and you haven’t done so already: please send me your answers. Without your answers, I can’t post the nifty facts about you ;) That is all.
