Sour Cherry Basil Antioxidant Water ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #homemade #flavored #water #recipe

Tart cherries and fresh basil add a delightful tang, beautiful color and so many health benefits to simple water (or better yet: sparkling water!) I caught a nasty cold this summer from my mother. She warned me before we went to visit that she was sick, but I seriously (at the time) did not care. I felt […]


Blueberry Wild Violet Salad

Blueberry Wild Violet Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #purple #spring #salad #recipe

with goat cheese crumbles, sweet roasted almond slices (not pictured), dandelion petals (optional) and a lovely honey lemon ginger dressing I’m a purple lover. Everything purple appeals to me. It’s been like this since childhood. Since Donny Osmond and his silly purple socks. Who remembers that? I know … I’m a dork. But even if […]

Nepalese Cauliflower Curry {Misayeko Tarkari} ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Nepal #Cauliflower #Vegetarian #Curry #recipe

The color is so vibrant too, it’s even a […]

“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 […]

Strawberry Almond Wild Violet Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #salad #recipe

with helpful links for salad inspirations, salad questions, health information, and links to over 81 salad and salad dressing recipes Last week I hosted my very first cooking class.

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 […]


40 Healthier Holiday Appetizers

40 Healthier Holiday Appetizers (and why they're better for you)

… and why they’re good for you! It’s almost Christmas and everywhere I look lately, there is sugar! It’s taken over the Internet, my workplace, my kitchen, my gifts (yes, I confess, I’m giving away lots of sugar this year). For a while I fell victim to the sugar-devil, reveling in baking and melting chocolate, […]
