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 […]


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 […]


Bacon Mushroom Zucchini Fried Rice

Bacon Mushroom Zucchini Fried Rice ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #bacon #zucchini #friedrice #recipe

Bacon-y goodness comes to fried rice, with hearty mushrooms and zucchini, carrots and red onion, and, of course, copious amounts of scrambled eggs. It’s an irresistable combination to anyone who loves fried rice. (Do you know anyone who doesn’t love fried rice? I don’t think I do …) The idea of bacon fried rice came to […]


Zucchini Kale Fried Rice

Zucchini Kale Fried Rice ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #Asian #zucchini #friedrice #recipe

Hurrah garden season is here! I am a garden beggar this year … the only plants I have growing in my little container garden are herbs and a single tomato plant. Oh, and there are two little sweet pepper plants that refuse to die from last year … and they are stubbornly making peppers, despite […]


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 […]


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 […]


Mushroom Cauliflower Fried Rice

Mushroom Cauliflower Fried Rice ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #cauliflower #friedrice #recipe

Adapted from Eat Yourself Skinny You guys, as a healthy food blogger I feel like I’ve betrayed you. I’m SO sorry! Seriously I can’t believe I waited this long to bring you cauliflower fried rice. It’s something I’ve been seeing all over the blogosphere and wanting to try, but something held me back. It’s such a silly little […]


Broccoli Mushroom Wild Rice Cups

Broccoli Mushroom Wild Rice Cups ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #wildrice #mushroom #bites #recipe

These little bites are made with real Minnesota wild rice. I was the lucky recipient of the leftover wild rice from our Easter dinner and I had to make something wonderful with it! They’re delicious, they’re healthy, and easy too … and if you make these little cups in mini-muffin tins, only 65 calories apiece. A marvelous little snack or side […]


Tomato Basil Quinoa Scrambled Eggs

Tomato Basil Quinoa Scrambled Eggs with Kale ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #eggs #kale #breakfast #recipe

with kale … because why not put quinoa in your scrambled eggs? I had some quinoa in my fridge that I intended to use for a pilaf with some salmon for dinner, but then plans changed and I ended up going to my friend’s house for dinner. And then the next day, I was hungry […]


Perfect Broccoli Scrambled Eggs

Perfect Broccoli Scrambled Eggs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quick #healthy #delicious #breakfast #recipe

How about some bright green eggs for St. Patrick’s Day? These broccoli scrambled eggs are a delightful, healthy way to start your day and they’re SO quick to make! Since I’ve been eating healthier and trying to lose weight, I’ve found ways to lighten up my meals, to make every calorie count, nutrition-wise (and hopefully taste-wise […]


Italian Spinach Mushroom Baked Eggs

Italian Spinach Mushroom Baked Eggs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #healthy #breakfast #recipe

A simple healthy breakfast for mushroom lovers.  I made this breakfast because I am embracing my love for mushrooms and letting it go wild with ideas. If you are a mushroom hater (or allergic to mushrooms!), please go elsewhere. This post is not for you. For me, blogging happens in bits and pieces. First, I get […]


Kale Asiago Skillet Frittata

Kale Asiago Skillet Frittata ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #kale #cheese #breakfast #recipe

“These are the best eggs I’ve ever tasted,” she said to me. It was my cousin’s girlfriend who said this. I’d only just met her the night before. She, my cousin and their two daughters came up to join us for a weekend at my parents’ place. In the morning I made them this frittat for […]


Spicy North Indian Baked Eggs

Spicy North Indian Baked Eggs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Indian #Shakshuka #breakfast #vegetarian #recipe

Adapted from The Spiced Life Eggs baked in a spicy, complex sauce laced with the taste of India. Plain yogurt smooths and tones down the heat and toasted cashews add a little crunch. The instant I saw this recipe from The Spiced Life, I knew I wanted it. It’s sexy and saucy and spicy, all the things I really […]


Garden Harvest Breakfast Bowl

Garden Harvest Breakfast Bowl ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #baked #egg #breakfast #recipe

This lovely breakfast is a little “nest” made out of grilled (or roasted) harvest veggies, with an egg baked in the middle, topped with a bit of cheese. You can add breakfast meat such as breakfast sausage or a bit of bacon if you like, too, but to me, it’s not needed. The fresh garden […]


Bacon Zucchini Asiago Fresco Frittata & a Black Cube Product Review

Bacon Zucchini Asiago Fresco Frittata and a Black Cube Frying Pan Product Review ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #egg #brunch #recipe & #productreview

It has felt like Christmas in July at my house the past couple days. I’ve had a few different people contact me asking if I’d like to try their products. I love times like this–it makes all the work of the blog seem a little more worthwhile. Not that it isn’t a joy to do […]


Zucchini Tagliatelle w Mushrooms, Cheesy Quinoa & Egg

Zucchini Taglietelle with Wild Mushroom, Cheesy Quinoa & Egg ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #breakfast #morel #mushroom #recipe

I needed a hearty, healthy breakfast and a zucchini noodle dish topped with cheesy quinoa with egg came to mind. Zucchini noodles (aka “Zoodles”) always seem to be in a spaghetti sort of noodle shape, which is way fun, but there are other blades on my spiralizer, and I thought I ought to try a […]


Chipotle Spinach & Blue Cheese Omelet

Chipotle Spinach & Blue Cheese Omelet ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #smoky #spinach #bluecheese #omelet #recipe

An omelet for people who crave flavor! I knew spinach and blue cheese would go well together, and then something made me throw in some chipotle powder and those three things together, along with some fresh basil & tarragon and a bit of onion, well, it’s an omelet I’d make again, and again, and again. I’ve […]


Spinach & Sausage Strata

Spinach & Sausage Strata ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #dinner #recipe

If you have never had a strata, it is the savory cousin to bread pudding. It’s made with stale bread, so if you have old bread about that you don’t want to go to waste, all you need to do is add some sausage, eggs, cheeses and spinach to make a flavorful and easy yet cozy […]


Spooky Spider Deviled Eggs

Spooky Spider Deviled Eggs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Halloween #Appetizer #Recipe

Inspired by Simply Gourmet It sort of shocks me that I have been waiting for an occasion to make these spooky spider deviled eggs for three years. Wow. Really? They’ve been hiding in the back of my brain THAT long? Apparently so. Three years ago my friend Sherron from Simply Gourmet posted her Spider Deviled Eggs post. Oh how […]

Asparagus Avocado Deviled Eggs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #GreekYogurt #deviled #eggs #recipe

with summer herb Greek yogurt mayo Sooo the other day my work friend asked me if I had a trick for making hard boiled eggs so they peel easy, and I had to say I have a trick for making hard boiled eggs that TASTE great, but they are danged hard to peel (especially if […]


Kid Fried Rice

Kid Fried Rice ~ an easy, quick way to introduce your kids to Chinese food ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #kid-friendly #recipe

This is a dish I have been making my kids for many, many years, since they were little. I think I first made it to introduce them to Chinese food and it worked like a charm. When they were younger,  I used to make this recipe for the kids, take their portion out of the […]


Spinach Asiago Souffle Cups

Spinach Asiago Souffle Cups ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #breakfast or #appetizer #recipe

Here’s another recipe I made for the Wine & Design event last Friday … I didn’t expect these Spinach Asiago souffle cups to go so quickly, but they were gone in a flash! Word spread quickly how good they were … and before I knew it, I had to tell people “sorry, I’m all out […]


Mexican Breakfast Quinoa

Mexican Breakfast Quinoa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #quick #Mexican #breakfast

One more for Cinco de Mayo: a simple breakfast  quinoa with Mexican flair. I had this for breakfast yesterday while I was working on that Cinco de Mayo collection. It was a grab-things-out-of-the-fridge-and-throw-them-together kinda breakfast, but you know, sometimes that yields the best results! This tasted so good, I inhaled it and was looking at […]


Chipotle Ham & Tomato Souffle Cups

Chipotle Ham & Tomato Souffle Cups ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #mini #souffle #appetizer

I am baking up a storm because my friends and I are having a “wine & design” night on Friday night and they’ve conned me into bringing the food. Not like they had to twist my arm very hard … I just love to cook. I even took Friday off of work so I can […]
