My friend Melissa from ChinDeep turned me on to this cocktail. She messaged me on facebook and asked me if I’d tried it … so I googled it and found loads of images of beautiful tropical fruity cocktails. I was mesmerized … must. try. this. drink! I’m so glad I’ve made it to my weight […]

Cherry Almond Broccoli Salad

Cherry Almond Broccoli Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #summer #potluck #salad #recipe

A fast and easy potluck salad that is a total crowd pleaser! Crunchy almonds and fresh sweet cherries mix with broccoli, peas and sweet onion in a light yogurt/mayo dressing. We had a little rib fest at work last week. My company bought the ribs, 5 people volunteered to cook them (including me) and others were encouraged […]

Breakfast Nachos Supreme

Breakfast Nachos Supreme ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fun #Mexican #breakfast #recipe

Nachos for breakfast! Now THIS is an amazing way to start a day. Breakfast nachos are something I have been wanting to try for a while … and I don’t know exactly why I haven’t. The other day the subject came up at work and we decided we need to make these for our monthly […]

Double Chocolate Cherry Brownies

Double Chocolate Cherry Brownies ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cherry #brownie #recipe

I made brunch for an event this month and I really wanted something chocolate … every event needs a little chocolate, don’t you think? I thought and thought upon it and brownies seemed to be the thing that was calling to me. The fresh sweet cherries in my fridge decided to join the party and […]

Mango Pork Salad in a Jar

Mango Pork Salad in a Jar with blueberry goat cheese, toasted walnuts, cucumbers & a fiery grilled pineapple vinaigrette ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #portable #dinner #salad #recipe

with blueberry goat cheese, walnuts (or macadamias), cucumbers and a fiery grilled pineapple vinaigrette I made this salad a couple times … the first time for my yoga friends, in quart-size mason jars. This time I made the salads with mango and strawberries (because I happened to have strawberries that needed using and mangos have been […]

Hawaiian Fizz

Hawaiian Fizz ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cocktail #mocktail #coconut #pineapple #drink #recipe

A cool, refreshing tropical fizzy beverage with the flavors of coconut, pineapple and a hint of lime. Make it a cocktail by adding a shot of coconut rum, or leave it non-alcoholic and let it be your kids’ favorite sipper this summer. While cruising the interwebs for luau recipes, I ran across a drink called a Hawaiian […]

Hawaiian Kalua Pork

Hawaiian Kalua Pork ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #ovenbaked #smoky #pork #recipe

Here’s another delicious Hawaiian recipe I am making for the luau! I am so enjoying this virtual culinary trip. In Hawaii, they wrap an entire pig in banana leaves and smoke it in an underground pit. There is a grand ceremony at the luau when they pull the pig out of the pit. Then they shred the smoked […]

Ham & Asparagus Breakfast Quinoa

Ham & Asparagus Breakfast QUinoa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesy #breakfast #quinoa #egg #recipe

Cheesy goodness, the nutty quinoa goes so perfectly with the roasted asparagus and salty ham. Add an egg with that delightful runny yolk and it’s breakfast heaven (if you ask me). The asparagus is almost done and I don’t want it to go … I know, I could still buy some from the store, but […]

Mediterranean Cucumber Tomato Salad

Mediterranean Cucumber Tomato Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #light #easy #summer #salad #recipe

with sweet onions, fresh oregano, parsley, dill, feta cheese and a light lemon herb vinaigrette We’ve made it to the dog days of summer already … the kind of scorching hot day where you don’t even want to go outside, ice water and air conditioning are the best things ever and you don’t feel like […]

Smokin’ Chipotle Pimento Cheese

Smokin' Chipotle Pimento Cheese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #spicy #cheese #spread #recipe

Inspired by Dixie Chik Cooks I have a wonderful circle of yoga friends. We have little parties where everyone brings food … and someone inevitably brings pimento cheese to every party. Typically it is store-bought, picked up on the way to the party, but everyone enjoys it and talks about how much they love it. And […]
