Steak & Blue Cheese Salad w Roasted Veggies

Steak & Blue Cheese Salad with Roasted Vegetables ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dinner #salad #recipe

Sometimes leftovers are simply best served on a bed of greens, with a sprinkle of cheese and a good dressing. I would totally choose this salad over a hunk of meat on a plate any day. I made a whole meal out of two chunks of meat from a kabob and savored every bite. To […]

Apple Pie Cinnamon Rolls

Apple Pie Cinnamon Rolls ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #breakfast #recipe

It was the morning after the teenage birthday party sleepover, all the girls were sleeping except one early riser. We talked for a while, but then she settled into drawing … SO like my daughter! I turned my thoughts to what to serve for breakfast. This was not something we’d planned ahead of time. I […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Quinoa Granola

Chocolate Peanut Butter Quinoa Granola ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quinoa #granola #recipe

Inspired by Lauren Kelly Nutrition It was quite a while ago when I first saw Lauren Kelly’s Quinoa Granola. I was curious, intrigued, but also a little afraid. I was trying to imagine how the little grains of quinoa would taste uncooked. They look so rock hard and not so good on the teeth. I […]

Steak & Blue Cheese Quesadilla ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quick #snack or #dinner #recipe

So what do you do when you have leftover Honey Rosemary Steak Kabobs in your house from the daughter’s birthday party? I couldn’t wait to make something cheesy with that lovely steak … and I happen to have some really good blue cheese in my fridge that my good friend gave to me. There’s something […]

Honey Rosemary Steak Kabobs

Honey Rosemary Steak Kabobs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #grilled #steak #recipe

It’s that time of year … tax and birthday season. The birthday that affects me most is my daughter’s April birthday. She and I have been scrambling to clean the house and prepare for this big event for about 2 weeks now. I caught a little spring cold in the process, which made the whole […]

Strawberry Ginger Oat Scones

Strawberry Ginger Oat Scones ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #scone #recipe

Adapted from Cookin Canuck I made these scones when we were up at my parents’ place last time. We didn’t coordinate very well on who was bringing what and found ourselves with an over-abundance of fresh strawberries. So I was tasked with using up some of the strawberries. I debated over several berry recipes, but […]

Maple Marmalade Cream Cheese

Maple Marmalade Cream Cheese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #schmear #recipe

You might have noticed if you’ve been following me for a while that I have a thing for really good “schmear” … that is, something creamy, cheesy and wonderful to spread on your bread, bagel or crackers. This one has a sunshiny citrus flavor that reminds me of Florida. This was another “treasure” I created […]

Havarti Chive Potato Puff

Havarti Chive Potato Puff ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #potato #recipe

I had some leftover mashed potatoes in my fridge. I love when that happens; in fact, I have been known to make lots of extra potatoes just so I could have leftovers. So these leftovers were very intentional. I originally had plans to turn them into shepherd’s pie, but somehow never had enough time or […]

Roasted Pears with Maple Nut Mascarpone

Roasted Pears with Maple Nut Mascarpone Filling ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #light #dessert #recipe

Do you ever walk into the grocery store and find yourself smitten with some piece of fruit you see in the entrance? This was one of those times. I walked in … and there were these gorgeous pears … I was intrigued, and then drawn, and then … I just had to have them. I […]
