Strawberry Rhubarb Bread Pudding Cups ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert for #breakfast #muffins

A long, long time ago, I asked a friend what she wanted me to make her as a treat for her birthday. She said she wanted bread pudding, but not a fancy bread pudding, she wanted a plain bread pudding. She was very specific about this. “What?” I said … “I can’t add any fruit? […]

Adapted from Cook’s Illustrated It’s 3.14 today … Pi Day … an annual event we love to celebrate at my house because we love math … and we love pie. But I have a confession to make: I have a HUGE pie crust phobia (resulting from a bad pie experiment I did as a child), so I […]

Maple Spice Apple Crisp

Maple Spice Apple Crisp ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #lowsugar #apple #crisp

My yoga friend’s apple tree had a plentiful year. For weeks she brought us buckets full of apples, with special bags for us to bring a bunch of apples home with us. I filled up a couple bags of apples and brought them home … I did use a few of the apples, but most of […]


Swedish Apple Cranberry Pie

Swedish Apple Cranberry Pie ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pie #recipe

Very slightly adapted from Food Done Light This is another of those recipes I’ve been wanting to make since I first saw it. I am not good with pie crusts so when I saw a pie crust that makes itself, I was instantly drawn to it. I intended to make this pie for my family […]


Ginger Carrot Red Lentil Soup

Ginger Carrot Red Lentil Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

Adapted from La Belle Cuisine Sundays in the wintertime for me seem to be soup making days. If I don’t make soup on Sunday, I find myself regretting it all week long when I have no soup to eat for lunches during the week. So this morning I set out to make some soup, but […]


Maple Orange Spice Cranberry Sauce

Maple Orange Spice Cranberry Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cranberry #recipe

Inspired by Shockingly Delicious’ Hall of Fame Cranberry Sauce I don’t know why I decided to stray from my favorite cranberry sauce (or even why I am making cranberry sauce because I’m the only one in the family who likes it), but I just LOVE cranberries! I didn’t use to even like cranberry sauce until […]

Adapted from Citronlimette and The Hungry Belgian It’s starting to feel like autumn here finally … some years I’m kicking and screaming, not wanting to let go of summer, but this year, for some reason, I’m welcoming fall with open arms. The evening chill feels good, I’m happy to pull out my “keep my feet […]

Apple Crisp for One {Low Sugar}

We are on a mission to cut sugar from my daughter’s diet, per instructions from her doctor. We have hopes that this will help cure her dizziness problem.

Apple Pie Wontons {Baked ~ Low Sugar}

If you have an apple, a few spices and some wonton wrappers, you can make these simple little apple pie wontons in about 30 minutes. I created these for my daughter … she loves apple pie, but her doctor told her to cut out sugar from her diet, so I thought I would try making […]

Pomegranate, Kiwi, Kumquat, & Mango Salsa

I love salsa. The heat of it. The variety. The fun ways you can use it. You can put so many things in a salsa.  I had some tomatoes that were begging me to make them into salsa, but I wanted to do something a little different this time … I’ve heard of mango salsa, […]
