Seasonings

Baharat Seasoning

Baharat Seasoning ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #MiddleEastern #spice #recipe

An exotic, spicy and intriguing Middle Eastern Spice mix that smells intoxicating! I discover the most interesting things when I go looking for creative ways to use up an overabundant ingredient. Today I have way too much mint. My friends warned me if I planted mint that it would take over, but I really wasn’t prepared for […]


Avocado Jalapeno Zummus

Avocado Jalapeno Zummus ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spicy #zucchini #hummus #recipe

I want to start a new trend. I think “Zummus” should be a new word in the dictionary, kind of like the word “Zoodles” has taken over the foodie blog scene. Want to help me? Create your own version of Zummus and post it/share it/pin it (tag or message me and I’ll share it too!) […]


Homemade Hoisin Sauce

Homemade Hoisin Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #Asian #Hoisin #sauce #recipe

Hoisin sauce is a thick, pungent sauce commonly used in Chinese cuisine as a glaze for meat, an addition to stir fries, or as dipping sauce. It is darkly coloured in appearance and both sweet and salty in taste. If you find yourself needing Hoisin sauce for a recipe, but have none on hand, this […]


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 […]

At the end of the year, I like to look back and reminisce about what happened this year, what was good, what was not-so-good, what could be better. What did people like most? least? What should I do differently next year? It’s interesting stuff to think about. I think it’s funny that my foodie friends […]


Red Robin Seasoning Copycat Recipe #2

Red Robin Seasoning {Copycat Recipe #2}

I fell in love with Red Robin seasoning when we lived in near proximity to a Red Robin restaurant. They have amazing burgers and chicken sandwiches, their fries are big and wonderfully crunchy on the outside, yet soft and potato-ey on the inside. They have a huge menu of alcoholic concoctions too, but the thing […]


Roasted Pepper Tomato Tapenade

My friend gave me a bit of this lovely roasted pepper tomato tapenade she made. Ooh it was delicious! I tried spreading it on toast with melted cheese over top. Yum. I put it on a sandwich. Oh yes! I imagined all the things I could do with this scrumptious spread: it would be lovely […]


Low Sodium Red Magic Seasoning

Red Magic Seasoning

I am on a quest for low sodium, but delicious food lately. Food that will appeal to a teenager. I never never never thought I would have to worry much about sodium … my blood pressure is low. My kids, well they’re kids! You don’t have to worry about salt too much with kids, right? […]

Red Robin Seasoning (Copycat recipe)

Red Robin Seasoning (Copycat recipe)

and a wealth of other seasoning mixes from my friend Carla In general, I am not fond of chain restaurant food–I prefer to sample the local fare wherever I am–but there are a couple places I do like, and Red Robin is one of my favorites.  It’s basically a burger joint, but their burgers are […]
