Grilled Salmon with Tarragon Dijon Sauce

Grilled Salmon with Creamy Tarragon Dijon Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #grilled #fish #recipe

Salmon grilled on a bed of lemon slices with a creamy tarragon dijon yogurt sauce drizzled over top. What’s not to love about that? I made this one lovely sunny afternoon. There was a slight breeze–a welcome break from the torrential winds and chilly weather we’d been having. It was the perfect day for grilling […]


Grilled Zucchini Corn Salsa

Grilled Zucchini Corn Salsa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #smoky #grilled #salsa #recipe

Allow me to introduce you to my latest obsession … actually, I already introduced you, but I fear you may not have noticed because I made the introduction as a topping for another dish, and I have to apologize for that. This beautiful grilled salsa is finding its way into so many crevasses in my life that […]


Peanut Butter Cookie S’Mores

Peanut Butter Cookie S'Mores ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cookie #smore #recipe

I’ve seen these cookie S’Mores making their way across the interwebs and decided that my kids and I just HAD to try them. My son was not on board with this idea (he prefers to eat his cookies and marshmallows and chocolate UN-toasted), but my daughter and her friend were totally up for it, so […]


Grilled Eggplant Parmesan

Grilled Eggplant Parmesan ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #eggplant #parmesan #recipe

The first time I tasted Eggplant Parmesan, it was a game-changer for me. It was many years ago … a friend had invited us over for dinner and we didn’t really know when she invited us that she was vegetarian and we never suspected she would serve eggplant. (We were definitely in the “eggplant hater” […]


Grilled Italian Garlic Asparagus

Last week when I fired up the grill to make sausage kabobs, I decided to cook up some asparagus on the grill too. (Above is the picture I took BEFORE I sealed it up and threw it on the grill.) So I did one of my favorite grill tricks: I made a packet of veggies […]


Italian Garlic Sausage & Potato Kabobs

Italian Garlic Sausage Potato Kabobs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sausage #kabob #grilled #bbq #recipe

with zucchini & bell pepper This is simply a German meal on a stick. With Italian Seasoning. Made in America. I have seen the idea of using sausages in kabobs and I thought it was ingenious. How superbly simple! It’s possibly my German heritage showing through, but if there are sausages, then I always seem […]


Garlic Greek Yogurt Chicken Kebabs

Garlic Greek Yogurt Chicken Kabobs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #grilled #chicken #recipe

Have you tried marinating your chicken in yogurt before grilling? It’s a super-magical thing that keeps it wonderfully moist and delicious. I decided to kick up my yogurt marinade with flavor this time … I added loads of garlic and Sundried tomato pesto (Pesto Rosso). This makes a lot of marinade, but I didn’t actually […]

It’s that time of year … tax and birthday season. The birthday that affects me most is my daughter’s April birthday. She and I have been scrambling to clean the house and prepare for this big event for about 2 weeks now. I caught a little spring cold in the process, which made the whole […]

Grilled Honey Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chicken #recipe

Do you ever get tired of making the same old same old on the grill? Yeah, that was me the other night. I wanted to grill something a little different, but then again, not TOO far from normal so my daughter would still eat it. I decided it was time for some grilled fruit with […]


Pesto, Shrimp & Kale Grilled Pizza

We love to grill pizzas in the summertime … my daughter always wants hers to be plain cheese (or sometimes sausage), I like to be more adventurous. So I make them “individual sized” so we can each have our favorite kind. Grilling pizza is really quite easy … the trick is to prep your toppings […]

Blue Cheese & Spinach Venison Burgers ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #burger #recipe

We had a pre-4th of July potluck barbecue cookout last week at work. Because we have so much meat in our freezer, I signed up to bring burgers. Then I was faced with how to season the meat. I made two flavors and this one was my personal favorite. I saved enough meat to make […]
