Breakfast

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 […]


Sour Cream Rhubarb Coffee Cake

Sour-Cream-Rhubarb-Coffee-Cake

Adapted from AllRecipes A lovely moist, tender and sweet whole wheat coffee cake laced with light bits of soft, tart rhubarb and a crunchy brown sugar pecan topping. Happy Mother’s Day my foodie friends! I belatedly decided, at the last minute, that we needed to go visit my mom this weekend. The rest of the family […]


Baked Eggs in Bacon Zucchini Nests

Baked Eggs in Bacon Zucchini Nests ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #breakfast #recipe

Spiralized zucchini sauteed with onion and garlic makes a lovely “nest” for  a baked egg. With a little cheese and some bacon, it’s a delightful breakfast. It was Saturday morning, the morning I have my 8:30 yoga class. Sometimes 8:30 seems awfully early for a yoga class on Saturdays, but I’ve grown accustomed to it. But […]


Mushroom Potato Hash

Mushroom Potato Hash ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quick #breakfast #recipe

A simple dish that is so comforting and delicious … and healthy, too! Mushrooms and potatoes fried up into a lovely hash, with a bit of cheese and a fried egg on top. This is my idea of breakfast paradise. The other day I was thinking back to many years ago when I lived in California. […]


Lemon Avocado Sweet Pea Crostini

Lemon Avocado Sweet Pea Crostini ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #avocado #toast #recipe

Adapted from Bacon Fatte Delightful little avocado toasts, with lemon, garlic, sweet peas and cilantro to liven up the party. The peas give the bright green spread a little sweetness plus they add fiber and nutrients. Perfect for breakfast or for a St. Patrick’s Day celebration with a nice Irish beer, these little green crostini […]


Cherry Chocolate Almond Mini Muffins

Cherry Chocolate Almond Mini-Muffins~Sumptuous Spoonfuls #glutenfree #hearthealthy #breakfast #recipe

Adapted from Texanerin Baking These little chocolate muffins made with almond flour have a dense, almost fudgy texture. The dark chocolate sensation hits you first, then there’s a hint of cherry flavor and then your tongue lingers on the amazing texture that only almond flour can create. They are grain free and sweetened with honey, high in […]


Ham & Broccoli Breakfast Scramble Supreme

Ham & Broccoli Breakfast Supreme ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #lowcarb #breakfast #recipe

Ham, broccoli, a bit of onion, tomato and eggs all scrambled up in a quick gluten free, high protein breakfast skillet that is healthy, yet surprisingly satisfying. The bursts of juiciness from the tomatoes along with the heartiness of the eggs and ham and the fresh crisp-tender of the broccoli make this a healthy breakfast that is […]


Denver Omelet Stuffed Potato Skins

Denver Omelet Stuffed Potato Skins ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #breakfast #potato #skins #recipe

I made baked potato soup for my son last week, and when I was scooping the flesh out for the soup, I was very careful to leave a little bit of potato edge in the skins, saving them for ME … you see, I absolutely adore crispy crunchy potato skins. I couldn’t wait to bake […]


Sweet Pepper Asiago Zucchini Tots

Sweet Pepper Asiago Zucchini Tots ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #zucchini #recipe

When I did my kid-friendly cooking class and I shared my broccoli cheddar tots with my friends, I also made up a batch of these zucchini tots so my friends could sample the tots with a different “featured” veggie. Zucchini is marvelous in tots because it has such a mild flavor and it just soaks […]


Strawberry Chocolate Chip Pancake Tacos #Choctoberfest

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Pancake Tacos ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Choctoberfest #Breakfast #recipe

Another fun post to celebrate #Choctoberfest … and also “International Cook with Your Kids Day” … I think this post is SO fitting … because … Every morning I make chocolate chip pancakes (with mini chocolate chips) for my daughter for breakfast. I make the batter ahead of time and keep it in the fridge so […]


Sausage & Kale Frittata

Sausage & Kale Frittata ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Sausage #Kale #Breakfast #Recipe

Last weekend I wanted a frittata. A healthy egg-y breakfast with cheese and vegetables … plus I had some leftover cooked breakfast sausage in my fridge that I decided to toss in. The flavor of the sausage with the kale and egg and cheese was magnificent. My stomach was pleased. My taste buds were happy. There […]


Cheesy Bacon Zucchini Pie

Cheesy Bacon Zucchini Pie ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #zucchini #egg #pie #recipe

A melty cheesy pie made with zucchini, bacon, onion, garlic and eggs. Enjoy it for breakfast, or brunch, or dinner, or anytime! I made a full cup of millet when I made the veggie-licious millet cakes, mostly because I’ve never tried making anything with millet and I was curious what else I could do with […]


Veggie-licious Millet Cakes & Cookbook Review

Veggie-licious Millet Cakes & Natural Baby Food Cookbook Review ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls & The Foodie Physician #cookbook #review #milletcakes #kidfood

My dear friend Sonali (a.k.a, The Foodie Physician) has written another wonderful book! I have contributed recipes in some her books in the past … but when contacted about this one, I have to admit I hesitated, because I thought at my stage of life, with a daughter who’s just entering her senior year in college […]


Summer Garden Curry Baked Eggs

Summer Garden Curry Baked Eggs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #garden #tomato #spicy #curry #breakfast #recipe

It’s harvest season … a time of year I absolutely love. I personally don’t have much of a garden (other than the massive container garden on my patio which is mostly flowers and herbs this year), mostly because I find myself too busy to tend to it and partly because I live in a forest. […]


Piña Colada Bread Pudding Cupcakes

Piña Colada Bread Pudding Cupcakes ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pineapple #coconut #breadpudding #recipe

This is where bread pudding and Piña Coladas collide … in a beautiful, little cupcake form. This recipe was born when I had too many Hawaiian buns left after the summer bash at Little Cellar Wine Company / Coffea last month. The buns turned slightly hard after a bit, so my kids wouldn’t eat them, but they still […]


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 […]


Easy Breakfast Chilaquiles

Easy Breakfast Chilaquiles ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Mexican #breakfast #casserole #recipe

There is this thing in California that I didn’t quite “get” until I tried it … one of my friends used to order these every single morning for breakfast and she would just RAVE about them. I struggled to understand her obsession. Chilaquiles is a traditional Mexican dish that’s really very simple in concept. You […]


Breakfast Nachos Supreme

Breakfast Nachos Supreme ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fun #Mexican #breakfast #recipe

Nachos for breakfast! Now THIS is an amazing way to start a day. Breakfast nachos are something I have been wanting to try for a while … and I don’t know exactly why I haven’t. The other day the subject came up at work and we decided we need to make these for our monthly […]


Ham & Asparagus Breakfast Quinoa

Ham & Asparagus Breakfast QUinoa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesy #breakfast #quinoa #egg #recipe

Cheesy goodness, the nutty quinoa goes so perfectly with the roasted asparagus and salty ham. Add an egg with that delightful runny yolk and it’s breakfast heaven (if you ask me). The asparagus is almost done and I don’t want it to go … I know, I could still buy some from the store, but […]


Strawberry Rhubarb Bread Pudding Cups

Strawberry Rhubarb Bread Pudding Cups ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert for #breakfast #muffins

A long, long time ago, I asked a friend what she wanted me to make her as a treat for her birthday. She said she wanted bread pudding, but not a fancy bread pudding, she wanted a plain bread pudding. She was very specific about this. “What?” I said … “I can’t add any fruit? […]


Swiss Ham & Asparagus Egg Bake

Swiss Ham & Asparagus Breakfast Bake ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #eggbake #recipe

A lovely egg bake with swiss and gruyere cheeses, chopped ham, roasted asparagus, onion and a little bit of sundried tomato. Instead of bread cubes, I used bread crumbs in the bottom and that gave this yummy breakfast dish a really nice soft & fluffy texture. It’s Memorial Day weekend and after seeing my teenage daughter’s […]


Ham & Asparagus Quiche w Hashbrown Crust

Ham & Asparagus Quiche with Hashbrown Crust ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #brunch #quiche #recipe

I went to a graduation party yesterday … and, as usual at those types of things, there was lots of food. I ate too much, but somehow woke up this morning starving. I had a little bit of asparagus left from Mom and Dad’s garden and some cheese fondue leftover from the other day and I knew […]


Lavender Rhubarb Cobbler Cake

Lavender Rhubarb Cobbler Cake ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #rhubarb #lavender #cobbler #dessert #recipe

I first made this lovely “fruit-on-top” cobbler with strawberries. It was such a fun time … my little niece helped “plippity plop” the strawberries on top. Then I had to try it with other fruits. Then I made one with plums from my dad’s (very proliferous) plum tree. And this year, I thought I need to make one […]


Asparagus Sweet Pepper Egg Scramble

Asparagus Sweet Pepper Egg Scramble ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #quick #healthy #breakfast #recipe

I went to yoga last weekend and it was an “easy class” … I usually go to power yoga classes and if I find myself in an easier class I find little ways to make it more challenging. I want to be challenged. This class wasn’t all that challenging, but it was at the butterfly […]
