Lavender Cream Cheese Stuffed Figs

Lavender Cream Cheese Stuffed Figs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #lavender #creamcheese #figs #recipe

I found some fresh figs … right here in the midwest where such exotic things oh so rarely make an appearance. The foodie in me has been extremely jealous of all the fresh fig recipes I see online … I always ooh and ah over them, wishing, oh wishing, that I could experience this marvelous-ness that is […]

Veggie-licious Millet Cakes & Natural Baby Food Cookbook Review ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls & The Foodie Physician #cookbook #review #milletcakes #kidfood

My dear friend Sonali (a.k.a, The Foodie Physician) has written another wonderful book! I have contributed recipes in some her books in the past … but when contacted about this one, I have to admit I hesitated, because I thought at my stage of life, with a daughter who’s just entering her senior year in college […]

Turmeric Roasted Eggplant & Chickpea Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #deconstructed #hummus #salad #eattherainbow

with a rainbow of colorful veggies, feta cheese, toasted pine nuts (pinons) & a cucumber tahini yogurt dressing.

Mom and Dad gave me a big beautiful eggplant from their garden the last time I saw them and despite all the […]

Kalua Pork Fried Rice ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pork #friedrice #recipe

I am trying to catch up with all the recipes in my backlog … this one is from last June when I made the food for our Summer Bash party at Little Cellar Wine Company/Coffea. It was a great party with wonderful music, food and beer, but as usual, I made WAY too much food. […]

Summer Garden Curry Baked Eggs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #garden #tomato #spicy #curry #breakfast #recipe

It’s harvest season … a time of year I absolutely love. I personally don’t have much of a garden (other than the massive container garden on my patio which is mostly flowers and herbs this year), mostly because I find myself too busy to tend to it and partly because I live in a forest. […]

Strawberry Rhubarb Upside Down Cake ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #summer #fruity #caramel #cake #recipe

Adapted from Eating Well A gorgeous fruity cake, with a pretty design on top and an ooey gooey caramel sauce that forms by itself on the bottom of the pan. When you flip it over, all that gorgeous caramel drips down over the fruit and the cake and it tastes just like heaven. I love the way […]

This sushi roll was inspired by one of my favorite bagel toppings … smoked salmon and cream cheese. Sesame roasted asparagus and matchstick carrots on top of that add a nice flavor and crunch, a bit of green onion provides a little bite and then, a little bit of sriracha for that tingle on the tongue that is so […]

Smoky Roasted Garlic Zummus (Zucchini Hummus) ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #zucchini #hummus #recipe

Is it just me or is this zummus smiling at us? Tomorrow is National Zucchini Day! I am super excited because Mom and Dad brought me some of their beautiful striped zucchini from their garden. I had received one large “gift” zucchini a bit ago from a mystery donor (someone who brought zucchini to work […]
