Rosemary’s Garden Yoghurt Party Dip

Rosemary's Garden Yoghurt Party Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #herb #spinach #artichoke #dip #recipe

My fridge is still overflowing with Noosa yoghurt, partly from the shipment that I recently received from the kind folks there, and partly because we loved it so much that we had to run out and buy more of the flavors we’d already fallen in love with, even before we’ve finished trying the rest of the […]


Smoky Chipotle BBQ Ranch Dressing

Smoky Chipotle BBQ Ranch Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #homemade #salad #dressing #recipe

A mix of two favorites! Ranch dressing joins barbecue sauce to make a smoky, flavor-filled taste sensation. Made light with nonfat Greek yogurt so it’s healthy enough to serve or enjoy anytime. Recently I visited Pennsylvania for a work trip. There is this AMAZING barbecue place that we to go when we’re there because it’s right next […]


Greek Yogurt Spinach Artichoke Dip

Skinny Greek Yogurt Spinach Artichoke Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #hummus #GreekYogurt #SpinDip

One of my yoga sisters had a party after yoga class last week. When someone hosts a party at their house, it’s customary for the rest of us to bring a little something. We have the BEST parties because my yoga friends are also foodies. I didn’t have much time this week, but I did need to make up […]


Asparagus Dill Hummus

Asparagus Dill Hummus Recipe ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #healthy #asparagus #hummus #recipe

I had just a little bit of asparagus left … most years I have it in plenty because my parents have a HUGE asparagus bed and they have way more than they can eat, but this year was different. The asparagus was late, and not as abundant as usual, and then my parents left on […]


Sriracha Ranch Yogurt Dressing

Sriracha Ranch Yogurt Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #light #healthy #spicy #creamy #salad #dressing #dip

I adore a good salad, especially a salad that has lots of flavor. One day when I was out to dinner with my kids, I spotted a “modern taco salad” on the menu, made with shredded pork and served with Sriracha Ranch dressing. I just HAD to taste that Sriracha Ranch … it was so good, […]


White Bean Queso Dip

White Bean Queso Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #mexican #bean & cheese #dip #recipe

I brought this queso to our last family gathering. It’s uber simple, almost embarrassingly so, but they didn’t care. They kept asking, “Ann, where is the queso?”, digging through the fridge to find it, sometimes stirring in some taco meat, warming it up in the microwave and pulling out the chips to munch down more […]


Spinach Sundried Tomato Dip

Spinach Sundried Tomato Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheese #spread #dip #recipe

I volunteered to bring dips & sweets as my contribution to our Christmas feasting this year. As you may have noticed from my posts lately with all the fudges and bars and things, I went a little overboard in the sweets department, but I was determined to have enough sweets so that we wouldn’t have […]


Hot Asiago Bacon Leek Dip

Hot Asiago Bacon Leek Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #creamy #Greekyogurt #bacon #leek #dip #recipe

A hot n cheesy Asiago version of “French Onion” dip featuring the more soft, subtle flavor of leeks with a smoky undertone of bacon. I’m still playing with the leeks my sister gave me from her garden. She bragged to me that HER leeks didn’t have any sand or dirt inside of them, and indeed they didn’t. […]


Sweet Maple Pumpkin Spice Hummus

Sweet Maple Pumpkin Spice Hummus ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sweet #autumn #hummus #recipe

Adapted from The First Year Blog The taste of pumpkin and all those lovely autumn pumpkin spices in a healthy sweet maple dip that is reminiscent of hummus. Well actually it IS hummus, minus the garlic and tahini, then add in pumpkin puree, peanut butter (to stand in for the tahini), pumpkin pie spice and maple syrup. […]


Graveyard Taco Dip

Graveyard Taco Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Halloween #layer #dip #recipe

Adapted from Chickabug Blog and my dear friend Kathy’s taco dip recipe When I first saw this amazing idea turning a dip into a graveyard, my mind immediately went to my yoga friend Kathy’s wonderful taco dip. We beg her to bring it to our yoga parties because it is SO good! She says when she […]


Muhammara {Roasted Red Pepper Dip}

Muhammara {a Mediterranean Roasted Red Pepper Dip} ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #mediterranean #dip #recipe

I discovered this dip when a bunch of us went out for lunch one Friday. We went to the Mediterranean restaurant in town that is SO good and one of my friends ordered a dip trio for lunch consisting of hummus, an olive tepanade and some lovely red stuff that I was soooo curious about. I […]


Cowhorn Queso with Corn

Cowhorn Queso with Corn ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #queso #cheese #dip #recipe

I’m quite partial to a good chile con queso and have made many a pot of this hot spicy cheesy dip over the years. Each time I seem to make it a little differently. When I found my mom and dad had cowhorn peppers in their garden, I gathered several of these long hot cayenne peppers […]


Fire Roasted Mixed Herb Baba Ghanoush

Fire Roasted Mixed Herb Baba Ganoush ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #garlic #tahini Middle Eastern #dip #recipe

The first time I “met” Baba Ganoush was at a party with my sister (who is, by the way, a fabulous and very adventurous cook). She introduces me to SOooooo many new things that I have never thought or heard of.  She was raving about this wonderful Middle Eastern dip that her friends were serving, […]


Cilantro Coconut Curry Sauce

Cilantro Coconut Curry Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #thai #curry #sauce #recipe

A delicious Thai-style curry sauce with a sweet coconut base, Sriracha, ginger, cilantro, lime, Thai red curry paste and jalapeno. It’s a new twist on that amazing Thai peanut sauce I love so much. I used this sauce for my Watermelon Coconut Curry. The sauce is sooooo scrumptious and so simple to make, I think […]


Mixed Herb Pesto

Mixed Herb Pesto ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #herb #pesto #recipe

The harvest has not even begun and still, I’m readying myself for the end of summer. I’ve seen the “back to school” signs in the store that always signify the end is near … why do they do that to us? It’s still July, can’t we just enjoy the warmth and colors of our beautiful […]


Pesto Spinach Shrimp Dip

Pesto Spinach Shrimp Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #lowfat #greekyogurt #cheesy #shrimp #dip

Last week I had the munchies something serious, so I decided to make myself a good (healthy) dip. I’d just made some mixed herb pesto so I dug through the fridge/freezer to find other things to put in my dip. This is what I came up with … and it was a mighty scrumptious dip, […]


Summer Herb Greek Yogurt Mayo

Summer Herb Greek Yogurt Mayo ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #greekyogurt #mock #mayo #recipe

Once I noticed that plain Greek yogurt + olive oil has a texture much like mayonnaise, I had to try another “flavor” … I decided to go “green” and take advantage of all the chives and lovely summer herbs in my herb garden. Which brought me to this … a green mayo that goes well […]


Herbed Lime Cilantro Chipotle Yogurt dressing

Herbed Lime Cilantro Chipotle Yogurt Salad Dressing ~ a sublime combination of ingredients for an easy, fabulous, and super healthy homemade dressing from Sumptuous Spoonfuls

This was the dressing I made for my Chipotle Fish Taco Salad … it was sooo good, I found myself using it on all sorts of salads and things, using it as a dip, but mostly enjoying it on all my salads. This dressing taught me a magical secret about olive oil, milk and Greek […]

Skinny Bacon Jalapeno Popper Dip

Skinny Bacon Jalapeno Popper Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #appetizer #recipe

Adapted from Isabelle at home and Moore or Less Cooking Blog … I “skinnied” it up a bit and added a Gluten Free option. Lately at my weekly Sumptuous Saturdays parties on facebook, we’ve been working our way through the alphabet and last week’s letter was J. As you can imagine, there were lots of Jalapenos […]


Beefy Dijon White Cheddar Dip

Beefy Dijon White Cheddar Dip ~ #easy #meat #dip #recipe from Sumptuous Spoonfuls

A wonderful creamy hot & beefy cheese dip with a flavor boost from gourmet Dijon mustard. It’s surprisingly healthy and high in protein too, with lean meat, onions, garlic, a goodly amount of nonfat Greek yogurt, sundried tomatoes, some sharp white cheddar cheese and a few red pepper flakes. You don’t need to feel guilty […]


Balsamic Spinach & Cannellini Dip

Balsamic Spinach & Cannellini Bean Dip ~ Delicious, Healthy & Easy Dip Recipe from Sumptuous Spoonfuls

Sriracha Hummus

Sriracha Hummus ~ Recipe & a bit of the history of hummus from Sumptuous Spoonfuls

The classic hummus kicked up a notch with the addition of Sriracha, a hot sauce that adds both flavor and a bit of heat to this delicious, healthy Mediterranean dip. My friend at work saw me eating this and said to me, “Why don’t they just call it bean dip?” … my answer to her […]

Adapted from Real Housemoms This dip has been calling me! When I laid my eyes on this Crockpot Pizza Dip from Real Housemoms, I knew it was time for me to graduate from meats and stews and try my crockpot out for something DIFFERENT. I made a few modifications to the recipe … I lightened it […]
