Bacon Apple Gorgonzola Bites ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #holiday#appetizer #recipe

Inspired by The Way to His Heart I saw a recipe for Gorgonzola Truffles and she mentioned she served them with apples, grapes or pears and I thought, well, gosh, why not put the apple INSIDE the truffle? How marvelous would that be, to have a crunchy surprise bite of sassy apple right inside your […]

Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #redpepper #soup #recipe

Roasted red peppers and cream cheese with a bit of Sriracha in a warm, comforting, creamy soup. Soooo this is the next most requested recipe on my list of gotta-get-posted recipes for the blog. It is actually a recipe I made some time ago, back in October. I made it, I tried it … I liked it, […]

Cherry Pistachio Irish Cream Fudge ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #white #fudge #recipe

Adapted just slightly from The Two Bite Club A simple, but oh-so-decadent white chocolate fudge with Irish cream, chunks of chewy dried cherries and crunchy roasted pistachios tucked within. Fudge is one of those things my dad used to make for us in the wintertime when we were little. He made a simple chocolate fudge, […]

Honey Sriracha Pumpkin Seeds

Honey Sriracha Roasted Pumpkin Seeds ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #spicy #sweet #roasted #pumpkin #seeds #recipe

The combination of honey with Sriracha is a magical thing. It takes that oh-so-amazing garlicky hot sauce to a whole new level. I’m trying to recall exactly when I discovered this, what was it I made with honey and Sriracha before? … but my memory is failing me. Anyway, after I roasted 2 little pumpkins, one for […]

Creamy Rosemary Sage Pumpkin Soup

Creamy Rosemary Sage Pumpkin Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #creamy #savory #pumpkin #soup #recipe

with goat cheese crumbles A savory thick and creamy pumpkin soup with sage and fresh rosemary. The goat cheese is just the right tangy creamy touch to finish it. I baked up a pumpkin with visions of a roasted pumpkin salad like I’d seen in photos around the web. The only thing was, once I’d roasted the […]

with goat cheese, cinnamon roasted almond slices and a rosemary red wine pear vinaigrette I can’t recall exactly where I was at when I saw this on the menu … perhaps it was the funky little spot in Minneapolis I stopped at for lunch?I’m not sure, and I’m not sure what crazy strangeness took over […]

King Ranch Chicken Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesy #green #chile #chicken #soup #recipe

I’m a northern girl, but my ex-husband is from Texas. Many, many years ago when we lived a lot further south than we do now, he mentioned King Ranch Chicken to me, I think hoping that I would make it for him. I did look up the recipe and thought it looked good, but not […]

Winter Apple Jack Tea

Winter Apple Jack Tea ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #comforting #hot #cocktail #recipe #skinny

A cozy, comforting adult beverage to help warm you through this winter season. It tastes much like spiked apple cider, but with fewer calories. I’ve been sipping on this apple tea on chilly autumn evenings as I’m working my way back to healthy after catching my daughter’s cold and since we seem to have plunged quickly from fall […]

Holiday spices and maple syrup in a zesty orange cranberry sauce that cooks in just 5 minutes in the microwave. It’s so easy to make, and soooo much better than those canned sauces. It’s almost time for my monthly cooking class at work and this month I’m focusing on stress-free Thanksgiving recipes. I have no cooktop […]

Maple Spice Apple Crisp

Maple Spice Apple Crisp ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #lowsugar #apple #crisp

My yoga friend’s apple tree had a plentiful year. For weeks she brought us buckets full of apples, with special bags for us to bring a bunch of apples home with us. I filled up a couple bags of apples and brought them home … I did use a few of the apples, but most of […]
