Fire Roasted Mixed Herb Baba Ghanoush

Fire Roasted Mixed Herb Baba Ganoush ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #garlic #tahini Middle Eastern #dip #recipe

The first time I “met” Baba Ganoush was at a party with my sister (who is, by the way, a fabulous and very adventurous cook). She introduces me to SOooooo many new things that I have never thought or heard of.  She was raving about this wonderful Middle Eastern dip that her friends were serving, […]

Caramel Apple Jam

Caramel-Apple-Jam

Adapted just slightly from Cooking with Mary and Friends Last weekend I went to visit my parents. Mom and Dad have this HUGE apple tree that makes tons of apples (probably literally) every year. This year especially it is LOADED with apples … apparently way too many for the tree to bear because while we […]

Making Salads a Sumptuous Meal

Strawberry Almond Wild Violet Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #salad #recipe

with helpful links for salad inspirations, salad questions, health information, and links to over 81 salad and salad dressing recipes Last week I hosted my very first cooking class. My full-time job doesn’t normally involve cooking, but I found a way to combine the two! I went to our HR director and volunteered to do […]

Grilled Eggplant Parmesan

Grilled Eggplant Parmesan ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #eggplant #parmesan #recipe

The first time I tasted Eggplant Parmesan, it was a game-changer for me. It was many years ago … a friend had invited us over for dinner and we didn’t really know when she invited us that she was vegetarian and we never suspected she would serve eggplant. (We were definitely in the “eggplant hater” […]

Meaty Moussaka Stew with Cheesy Croutons

Meaty Moussaka Stew with Cheesy Croutons ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Greek #Moussaka #Stew #Recipe

I’ve already made Moussaka this year with some of the fresh garden produce. This year, for the first time ever, my teenage daughter actually tried it — and ate every last bit of it, too! I was surprised, because she’s never been quite so daring culinarily, but she looked at me and said, “Mom … […]

Gluten Free Triple Chocolate Zucchini Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #glutenfree #chocolate #zucchini #bread #recipe

Adapted from The Fountain Avenue Kitchen Whenever one of my favorite foodie friends posts a gluten free recipe, my ears perk up. Not because I am gluten free, but because I have some good friends who eat gluten free. Kelly brings me gluten free ingredients to assist in my cooking experiments. And Mitch is my […]

Easy Zucchini Pepperoni Pizza Bites

Easy Zucchini Pepperoni Pizza Bites ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls#easy #glutenfree #pizza #recipe

I came home from work hungry the other night with a whole evening in front of me to work on the garden produce. The first thing I pulled out of my fridge was a rather large zucchini. It wasn’t one of those gargantuan sized ones that you could use for a baseball bat, but it […]

Maple Bacon Green Beans Almondine

Maple Bacon Green Beans Almondine ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sidedish #greenbeans #recipe

Adapted just slightly from Menu Musings I was talking to my sister on the phone not too long ago and she asked me if I wanted some green beans. Sure, I said, not thinking to much about it. Fresh garden produce is always a good thing, right? That conversation happened before my girl went to […]

Cilantro Curry Potato Salad

Cilantro Curry Potato Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #curry #potato #salad #recipe

I’m going to apologize for posting so many “produce” recipes, but it IS that time of year! I have so many fresh garden goodies and not enough time to make good use of everything! This was another creation I made for our little camping trip to the folk fest. I used my glorious cilantro coconut […]

Peach Pecan Scones

Peach Pecan Scones with Vanilla White Chocolate Drizzle ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #peach #pecan #scones #recipe

with vanilla white chocolate drizzle When we went camping at the folk fest, my friend asked me to bring muffins for breakfast. I said to her “no, not muffins — scones!” because I have peaches and I remembered that peach muffins do NOT travel well, but peach SCONES, now that would be quite a different […]
