Sunflower Fig Zucchini Bread

Sunflower Fig Zucchini Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #yogurt #wholewheat #zucchini #bread #recipe

Do you ever get bored with the same old zucchini bread recipe? I do … so sometimes I have to go out on a limb and make a new flavor. And this time I had some fresh figs that needed using … and making a figgy zucchini bread sounded fun. I constantly wonder about the figgy […]


Tomato Basil Upside Down Focaccia

Tomato Basil Upside Down Focaccia ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesy #onion #tomato #focaccia #recipe

Inspired by Ally’s Kitchen Think bruschetta baked right into focaccia … with cheese and sauteed onion. It’s a little like a pizza, but in an upside-down cake sort of way. It’s a delightful savory, yeasted upside down cake with focaccia stepping in to replace the cake batter. It could be a show-stealing appetizer, a snack, […]


Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #zucchini #bread #recipe

My mother has been trying new flavors of zucchini bread … she told me the most popular flavor she’s made lately is the peanut butter one. She makes hers with peanut butter chips … my mom is not a big fan of chocolate, but she does like peanut butter. Mom didn’t give me a recipe, […]


Coconut Mango Macadamia Zucchini Bread

Coconut Mango Macadamia Zucchini Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #tropical #zucchini #bread #recipe

Hurrah zucchini season has arrived! I got my first BIG zucchini from an unknown friend at work who had left some zucchini from their garden in the break room with a little note: Please take and enjoy! Oh I love fresh garden zucchini. I made some delicious zucchini kale fried rice with it, but it […]


Bread Machine Hawaiian Rolls

Bread Machine Hawaiian Rolls ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sweet #soft #rolls like #kings #Hawaiian #recipe

Adapted slightly from Handle the Heat Lightly sweet yeasted buttery rolls with a very soft, fluffy texture and tropical taste, these rolls are the fresh, homemade version of the famous King’s Hawaiian rolls. We have these monthly fitness challenges at work and I’m really psyched for this newest challenge. It’s a Hawaiian theme and the challenge is to walk/run/bike/swim 120 miles […]


Irish Barmbrack Bread {in the Bread Machine}

Irish Barmbrack Bread with tea-soaked raisins ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #wholewheat #irish #yeast #breadmachine #recipe

Adapted from Seasons & Suppers St. Patty’s Day is just around the corner. It’s one of my favorite holidays … and no, not just because of the beer. I have always been fascinated with Ireland. It’s on the list of places I must go. When I visited England and Scotland years ago, I wanted to […]


Bacon Cheddar Jalapeno Corn Muffins

Bacon Cheddar Jalapeno Corn Muffins ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #cornbread #muffin #recipe w #glutenfree option

Delightfully moist and wonderful corn muffins with real corn, bacon, sharp cheddar cheese and jalapeno peppers to give them a little bite. Sure to become a favorite. They aren’t very spicy, but feel free to tone down the amount of jalapeno (or omit it) if you’re sensitive to heat. I made these delightful little corn […]


Whole Wheat Yogurt Bread

Whole Wheat Yogurt Bread ~ Soft fluffy homemade bread that stays soft for days ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #breadmachine #recipe

Soft, fluffy homemade bread that stays soft and fluffy for days … a bread machine recipe A while ago, I posted my dad’s soft and wonderful yogurt bread recipe, which is truly wonderful, but as time went on and many many many loaves of bread were made in my house, I adjusted my own go-to bread recipe […]


Peppy’s Pita Bread {Bread Machine Recipe}

Peppy's Pita Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Pita #Bread #Recipe #Breadmachine

Adapted from AllRecipes.com Puffy part-whole wheat, homemade pitas that split nicely in two if you cut them open. Easy to make and so good for easy lunches and suppers! I have to admit that when I made this recipe, I really had no idea why this was called “Peppy’s Pita Bread”. But I googled it […]


Cinnamon Cranberry Chai Zucchini Bread

Cinnamon Cranberry Chai Zucchini Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #chai #zucchini #bread #recipe

Adapted from Simple Bites’ Best Zucchini Bread Ever When is the season where cinnamon and cranberries and hot chai intersect with zucchini? Sadly, I know, it doesn’t exist … these things never coincide. Cinnamon, perhaps, because cinnamon is an all-season sort of spice (but especially beloved in the fall) and chai too is welcomed in […]


Cheesy Garlic Pull-Apart Bread

Cheesy Garlic Pull-Apart Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #garlic #cheese #bread #recipe

Adapted slightly from Baked by Rachel  To go with our perfect Easter ham this year, I made this yummy garlicky pull-apart bread. I found this gorgeous recipe over at Baked by Rachel and just HAD to add cheese, because, well, what’s better than a good cheesy garlic bread? It turned out just as delicious as I had hoped. We […]


Fluffy Pillow Cornmeal Biscuits

Light & Fluffy Pillow Cornmeal Biscuits ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #biscuit #recipe

My son asked me for biscuits a week or two ago. I told him to search my blog and he said there were only two biscuit recipes there. That seemed kinda wrong so we made up a new one. It’s marvelous because he’s discovered he likes to make the biscuit dough, so we’ve had several […]


No Knead Peasant Bread

No Knead Peasant Bread baked in a bowl ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #yeast #bread #recipe

Adapted just slightly from Alexandra Cooks, with a big thank you to Cooking with Mary & Friends A lovely white bread with a soft, tender inside and a crunchy outside. It requires no bread machine, no kneading, and roughly 3 hours of time to make, from start to finish and most of that time is waiting for the dough […]


Gluten Free Triple Chocolate Zucchini Bread

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 […]


Chipotle Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Chipotle Cheddar Bay Biscuits ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chipotle #cheddar #biscuit #redlobster #copycat #recipe

Adapted from Damn Delicious Surviving as a seafood lover in the midwest is somewhat troublesome. While the lakes here provide a bountiful supply of wonderful fresh fish, it’s nigh impossible to find fresh shrimp or crab or lobster. I often resort to canned or frozen seafood and when we go out, well, Red Lobster is […]


Light Rhubarb Pecan Streusel Loaf

Light Rhubarb Pecan Streusel Loaf ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #wholegrain #lowfat #rhubarb #bread #recipe

Adapted slightly from Portland Press Herald I asked my mom to bring me rhubarb … so she brought me rhubarb. My mom brought SO much rhubarb that, even after I’ve made several rhubarb recipes, there is a large sack of rhubarb still taking up most of the top shelf of my refrigerator. One of the […]


Rhubarb Cream Cheese Scones

Rhubarb Cream Cheese Scones ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #rhubarb #scone #recipe

(Confession: really, the only reason I used cream cheese was because I was out of yogurt. Either one works just as well, IMHO.) I was out of town last week for training. It was a really good trip, a great class and we did find some really good food in Minneapolis, but, as usual when […]


Italian Tomato Asiago Focaccia

Italian Tomato Asiago Focaccia ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #yeast #bread #recipe

All homemade breads are wonderful in my book, but Focaccia is one of those breads that is just heaven to bite into. This focaccia has extra Italian flavor from Italian seasoning and Asiago cheese baked right into the bread. Topped with sweet cherry tomatoes, Italian seasoning, a bit of garlic and coarse sea salt, the […]


Ham, Cheese & Chive Crescent Pinwheels

Ham, Cheese & Chive Cresent Pinwheels ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #portable #sandwich #recipe

Perfect picnic food … they are like little portable sandwiches you can take with you anywhere. Great for dipping in soup, or you could serve them as an appetizer. The best part, in my mind, is that no cans of crescent roll dough were used in the making of these little portable sandwiches. I was looking […]


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 […]


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 […]


Bread Machine Brioche Buns

Bread Machine Brioche Buns ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #yeast #bread #recipe

Slightly adapted from The Clever Carrot I don’t remember which week it was that The Clever Carrot shared these gorgeous brioche burger buns on my page, but I remember wanting to make them right away. I remember we were just having our first taste of spring weather and I was dying to fire up my grill. I […]


Strawberry Poppy Seed Scones

Strawberry Poppy Seed Scones~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #wholewheat #scones #recipe

The other day I woke up and my (monster-size) son was there, in the kitchen, hungry. (When ISN’T he hungry?) “There’s NOTHING to eat, Mom!” he exclaimed. Of course there are lots of things to eat in my house … I don’t think there will ever be any shortage of food around here, but he […]


Silvia’s Focaccia Pugliese

Silvia's Focaccia Pugliese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Italian #Bread #Recipe

Recipe from Silvia’s Cucina. Silvia is a genius with bread. I’ve been inspired by her beautiful Italian breads many times, and when I stumbled across this recipe (through no help from facebook, who hides her lovely recipes from me), I was immediately smitten. When I was invited over to a friend’s house for dinner and […]
