Bacon Dill French Onion Dip

Bacon Dill French Onion Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #homemade #Greekyogurt #vegetarian #cip #recipe

Creamy bacony French onion dip with a bit of Sunflower Dill Pesto and some Bacon Salt so it tastes almost a little bit like a Bacon Cheeseburger, even though the dip is totally vegetarian. Another plus is it’s Greek yogurt based, so it’s high in protein and low in fat. I have always had a […]

Spiralized Rainbow Pad Thai

Spiralized Rainbow Pad Thai ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #Thai #recipe

Inspired by Oh She Glows A rainbow of vegetables partner with shrimp, chicken, eggs and traditional Pad Thai flavors to create a beautiful, vibrant, veggie-licious yet high protein meal full of delightful Asian flavors. It’s amazing to eat hot right out of the pan, but also surprisingly good cold too, as a Pad Thai “salad”. I decided […]

Louisiana Seafood Gumbo

Lousiana Seafood Gumbo ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #gumbo #recipe

Adapted from Emeril’s Classic Seafood Gumbo Made with ingredients readily available to land-lubbers everywhere, this classic southern seafood gumbo will transport your taste buds to Louisiana. When my sister and I went to New Orleans last year, one of my culinary goals on the trip was to have some good gumbo. I tasted three different gumbos […]

Pretzel English Toffee

Pretzel English Toffee ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert #candy #ImperialSugar

It occurred to me last winter when I was in my holiday baking mode that putting salty pretzels in toffee would be a brilliant idea … an idea akin to the saltine toffee that many people make, but with more crunch. So I made it … and it was wonderful … and everyone loved it […]

Barley Lentil Harissa Veggie Stew

Barley Lentil Harissa Veggie Stew ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #vegetable #stew #recipe #glutenfree #vegetarian

Do you have a kinder, more adaptable friend in the food world than soup? Who soothes you when you are ill? Who refuses to leave you when you are impoverished and stretches its resources to give a hearty sustenance and cheer? Who warms you in the winter and cools you in the summer? Yet who […]

Bacon Cheddar Jalapeno Corn Muffins

Bacon Cheddar Jalapeno Corn Muffins ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #cornbread #muffin #recipe w #glutenfree option

Delightfully moist and wonderful corn muffins with real corn, bacon, sharp cheddar cheese and jalapeno peppers to give them a little bite. Sure to become a favorite. They aren’t very spicy, but feel free to tone down the amount of jalapeno (or omit it) if you’re sensitive to heat. I made these delightful little corn […]

Sneaky Cheesy Potatoes w/Ham

Sneaky Cheesy Potatoes with Ham ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #hiddenveggies #recipe

Do you see any veggies here (other than potatoes) … ? … ah, yes, there are veggies, but you can’t see them. That is where the sneaky part comes in. You see, that cheese sauce on the taters? That’s no ordinary cheese sauce … it’s a veggie-ful cheese sauce! Made with cauliflower, carrots, onions and red […]

Bacon Spinach Quinoa Souffle Cups

Bacon Spinach Quinoa Souffle Cups ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #bacon #breakfast #recipe

Remember back when I made all those lovely souffle cups? There was a Chipotle Ham & Tomato one and a Spinach Asiago Souffle cup … Well, I’m not quite finished with souffle cups. There are just SO many possibilities for what you could put in these babies! I created this little souffle cup with gluten free […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Quinoa Granola

Chocolate Peanut Butter Quinoa Granola ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quinoa #granola #recipe

Inspired by Lauren Kelly Nutrition It was quite a while ago when I first saw Lauren Kelly’s Quinoa Granola. I was curious, intrigued, but also a little afraid. I was trying to imagine how the little grains of quinoa would taste uncooked. They look so rock hard and not so good on the teeth. I […]

Steak & Blue Cheese Quesadilla

Steak & Blue Cheese Quesadilla ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quick #snack or #dinner #recipe

So what do you do when you have leftover Honey Rosemary Steak Kabobs in your house from the daughter’s birthday party? I couldn’t wait to make something cheesy with that lovely steak … and I happen to have some really good blue cheese in my fridge that my good friend gave to me. There’s something […]

Roasted Pears with Maple Nut Mascarpone

Roasted Pears with Maple Nut Mascarpone Filling ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #light #dessert #recipe

Do you ever walk into the grocery store and find yourself smitten with some piece of fruit you see in the entrance? This was one of those times. I walked in … and there were these gorgeous pears … I was intrigued, and then drawn, and then … I just had to have them. I […]

Loaded Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies {Gluten free}

Loaded Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies {Gluten Free} ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Healthy #Cookie #Recipe

I was trying to find some other cookies to make for my gluten free friends, so I thought it would be fun to try making a gluten free version of those wonderful healthy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. Kelly was up for it, but Mitch was having none of that. (He only likes chocolate […]
