Blueberry Rhubarb Crisp

Blueberry Rhubarb Crisp ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #blueberry #rhubarb #dessert #recipe

Rhubarb and blueberries are beautiful companions. I just discovered this. I don’t know why I didn’t think of it earlier. Last summer I went all crazy on everything strawberry rhubarb, but in all my years of cooking, I never thought to pair blueberries with rhubarb. Perhaps it’s because of the overabundance of strawberries I see in the […]

Blueberry Wild Violet Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #purple #spring #salad #recipe

with goat cheese crumbles, sweet roasted almond slices (not pictured), dandelion petals (optional) and a lovely honey lemon ginger dressing I’m a purple lover. Everything purple appeals to me.

A lovely little sweet treat, laced with white chocolate, wild blueberries, a little cream cheese, vanilla and lavender, molded into pretty floral shapes.

Four Cheese Mushroom Cauliflower Risotto

4-Cheese Mushroom Cauliflower Risotto ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #lowcarb #risotto #recipe

A creamy cheesy risotto made with cauliflower rice and fresh mushrooms, so it’s low in carbs and high in nutrients … and it’s still quite creamy and satisfying. Risotto is typically creamy from the starch in the rice. The stirring of the risotto turns the starch into a nice cream sauce. Since cauliflower has none […]
