Peanut Butter Cup Fudge

Peanut Butter Cup Fudge ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #chocolate #peanutbutter #microwave #fudge #recipe

Continuing with my series on (definitely not healthy but oh so delightful) fudge for holiday treats and gifts this year, since I have a total addiction to peanut butter and chocolate together, I absolutely HAD to make a peanut butter cup fudge. This fudge features a rich and creamy chocolate layer with a layer of peanut […]

Toffee Grapes

Toffee Grapes ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #holiday #dessert #snack #appetizer #recipe

Adapted just slightly from The Nutrition Twins These little bites are an amazing combination of sweet, crunchy, juicy and creamy … they are a bit like one little bite-size caramel apple, but with extra crunch from the toffee. They are the sweeter cousins of the White Chocolate Peanut Grapes–both exceedingly simple, both amazing in their own right. I […]

Light & Luscious New England Clam Chowder

New England Clam Chowder ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #light #creamy #clam #chowder #recipe

A creamy, rich-tasting clam chowder … you wouldn’t even guess that it’s lightened up! I’ve discovered something marvelous about making creamy soups. A little bit of Greek cream cheese in the soup adds a creamy texture and flavor and adds a nice bit of protein without adding a lot of fat. The other “trick” I used in this […]

Rosemary Fontina Grape Skewers

Rosemary Fontina Grape Skewers ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #marinated #cheese #appetizer #recipe

If you’re looking for a festive appetizer for the holidays, these little grape and cheese skewers are a beautiful addition to any appetizer table. Not only do they look beautiful, they taste amazing too! Especially when served with a nice glass of wine. The cheese is marinated in extra virgin olive oil with rosemary, garlic, […]

Hasselback Potatoes Au Gratin

Hasselback Potatoes Au Gratin ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthier #scalloped #potato #hasselback #recipe

Adapted from The Baker Chick. Au gratin potatoes with garlic and rosemary, made in hasselback fashion so the tops of the potatoes get crunchy while the bottoms are tender and cheesy. Some might call these scalloped potatoes, but I’ve been told that if there is cheese involved, then it’s au gratin, not scalloped. Scalloped potatoes are […]

Sriracha Brussels Sprout Poppers

Sriracha Brussels Sprouts Poppers ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #hot #appetizer #recipe

Crispy little baked poppers with the oh-so-addicting heat and flavor from Sriracha, a crunchy topping and healthy roasted brussels sprouts as a “base”, topped with a bit more Sriracha, if you are so inclined. My sister gave me some fresh brussels sprouts and I was SO excited because I’ve never had brussels sprouts all to myself […]

Candy Cane Crush Fudge

Candy Cane Crush Fudge ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #peppermint #whitechocolate #fudge #recipe

I’ve been on a fudge tangent this year. I decided fudge would be just the thing to make for our Wine & Design event last Friday and in keeping with my normal way of completely overdoing every tangent I embark upon,boy, did I make a LOT of fudge. Peppermint was the number one crowd pleaser, […]

Spinach & Sausage Strata

Spinach & Sausage Strata ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #dinner #recipe

If you have never had a strata, it is the savory cousin to bread pudding. It’s made with stale bread, so if you have old bread about that you don’t want to go to waste, all you need to do is add some sausage, eggs, cheeses and spinach to make a flavorful and easy yet cozy […]

White Chocolate Peanut Grapes

White Chocolate Peanut Grapes ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #party #food #recipe

Delightful little bites with juicy grapes, sweet creamy white chocolate and crunchy honey roasted peanuts-on a stick! These little grapes (and their cousins I’ll be sharing soon) are the most fun little treats I’ve made in a long time. I saw the idea on Pinterest and honestly cannot remember the name of the blog that shared them […]

Turkey Quinoa Brussel Sprout Casserole

Turkey Quinoa Brussel Sprout Casserole with Mushrooms, Smoked Gouda & Bacon ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #comfortfood #leftovers #recipe

A creamy, luscious, yet healthy turkey casserole with mushrooms, smoked Gouda cheese, quinoa, and a bit of bacon. Even though my dad made a 17-pound bird, there really wasn’t much turkey left after our crowd got done eating this Thanksgiving. I was warned that I couldn’t take too much–and I didn’t. Just a small container […]
