Holiday Apple Pomegranate Sangria

Holiday Apple Pomegranate Sangria ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #holiday #cocktail #wine #recipe

Sangria is an adult beverage I’ve come to appreciate more and more ever since my friend Ann at The Fountain Avenue Kitchen posted her recipe for classic Spanish sangria. Since then I’ve made many variations of Sangria, both white and red versions, each one with its own special twist. This year I wanted to make […]


Apple Cherry Rhubarb Crisp

Apple Cherry Rhubarb Crisp with Toasted Pecans ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #delightful #dessert #recipe

There is a funny story behind this recipe … I was sharing rhubarb recipes on my facebook page one Saturday at my Sumptuous Saturday party and, as usual, whenever you talk rhubarb with foodies, there were a plethora of strawberry rhubarb recipes. After several of these in a row, one adorable fan commented, saying something […]

Apple Pie with Apple Whiskey Crust ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #PiDay #apple #pie #recipe #flakycrust

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 […]


Cherry Apple Walnut Chopped Salad

Cherry Apple Walnut Chopped Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #light #winter #salad #recipe

This salad is a light mix of fruity flavors with greens and a maple-licious dijon dressing. The dried cherries add an intensity that contrasts nicely with the crunchy sweet apples. I mixed in some Napa cabbage for the pretty curly leaves and the lovely light green color. Spinach provides the dark green. It’s a great way to use […]


Cranberry Apple Pear Oat Crumble

Cranberry Apple Pear Oat Crumble ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fruity #baked #oatmeal #recipe

It has been so dang COLD here lately, so I decided I need to make myself something nice and warm and cozy for breakfast. Have I mentioned before that I love eating dessert for breakfast? Well, I do, especially since I found out that eating dessert for breakfast can help you lose weight — and keep […]


Bacon Apple Gorgonzola Bites

Bacon Apple Gorgonzola Bites ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #holiday#appetizer #recipe

Inspired by The Way to His Heart I saw a recipe for Gorgonzola Truffles and she mentioned she served them with apples, grapes or pears and I thought, well, gosh, why not put the apple INSIDE the truffle? How marvelous would that be, to have a crunchy surprise bite of sassy apple right inside your […]


Winter Apple Jack Tea

Winter Apple Jack Tea ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #comforting #hot #cocktail #recipe #skinny

A cozy, comforting adult beverage to help warm you through this winter season. It tastes much like spiked apple cider, but with fewer calories. I’ve been sipping on this apple tea on chilly autumn evenings as I’m working my way back to healthy after catching my daughter’s cold and since we seem to have plunged quickly from fall […]


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 […]


Curried Red Lentil Apple Soup

Curried Red Lentil Apple Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #autumn #lentil #apple #soup #recipe

Adapted from Avocado Pesto A lovely curried lentil soup with a hint of sweet/tart apple and just a bit of heat, enough to make it lightly tingle on your tongue. The texture of the soup is soft, smooth and delicate. This month at work, they are doing a series of “fun Fridays” and one of […]


Ginger Apple Plum Oat Crumble

Ginger Apple Plum Oat Crumble ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fruity #baked #oatmeal #recipe

After teaching two breakfast cooking classes where we made overnight oat parfaits, I was a little burned out on overnight oats. But I had some chopped plums and freshly grated ginger left from the class and decided I needed to bake them into something warm and cozy with some lovely spices, maple syrup and pecans. A […]


Chicken Bacon Apple Fig Pizza

Chicken Bacon Apple Fig Pizza with Goat Cheese & Maple Balsamic Drizzle ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #thincrust #pizza #recipe

with goat cheese, zucchini ribbons, sweet onions and a maple balsamic drizzle  … Inspired by ChinDeep … plus a collection of fig recipes Or perhaps, since I “cheated” on the crust and used a tortilla in place of the pizza crust, we should call it a Tortizza?  Whatever you call it, it’s easy, delicious, and on […]


Watermelon Cucumber Salad w/Balsamic Roasted Figs

Watermelon Cucumber Salad with Balsamic Roasted Figs, Goat Cheese & Pecans ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #watermelon #fig #salad #recipe

with goat cheese, toasted pecans and a Rosemary Thyme Sweet Hot Pepper Vinaigrette If a salad could be orgasmic, this would definitely be the one. The marriage of flavors, textures and colors in this salad are totally incredible together. It’s got crunch from the cucumbers, sweet juiciness and a softer crunch from the watermelon, creaminess […]


Five Alarm Apple Hot Pepper Jam

Five Alarm Apple Hot Pepper Jam ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #hot #sweet #apple #jalapeno #jam #recipe

I’m doing my best to use the plethora of fresh garden produce I have in my fridge before it goes bad. I fell behind on the peppers; they were starting to sag … so I was trying to think of what to do with them. Someone posted a hot pepper jelly recipe (I think it was […]


Sweet Cranberry Apple Kale Salad

Sweet Cranberry Apple Kale Salad with Ginger, Walnuts & Goat Cheese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #kale #salad #recipe

with ginger, walnuts and goat cheese … Adapted from The Complete Book of Raw Food Volume 2 The sweet and intense taste of fresh ginger infuses this salad … it’s a super healthy salad with loads of curly kale, but I massaged the kale with olive oil to reduce the bitterness. The cranberries add a […]


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 […]


Apple & Hot Pepper Wine Jam

Apple & Hot Pepper Wine Jam ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #jam #recipe

I took some of this jam to work, poured it over a block of cream cheese and served with crackers. My friends  didn’t quite know how to describe it, but we all agreed it was marvelous with cream cheese and crackers. It took us a while to think of how to describe it. One friend […]


Maple Apple Cranberry Bread Pudding

Maple Apple Cranberry Bread Pudding ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert #recipe

  I didn’t originally intend to blog this recipe, but my coworkers all loved this bread pudding so much. They said I should DEFINITELY blog it, so I relented. It’s such a simple recipe to put together. I threw it together right away when I got up, went and took my shower and got the […]


Caramelized Apple Pear Dutch Baby

Caramelized Apple Pear Dutch Baby ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #breakfast #recipe

Adapted slightly from Spinach Tiger and Moore or Less Cooking Blog I’ve been fascinated with this poofy oven pancake that is a Pennsylvania Dutch tradition for what seems like forever, but I never found the time to make one. Part of it is my kids. We have perfected the pancake and waffle recipes so much […]

MySuperSnacks Healthy Snacks for Kids Product Review

About two months ago, Anita from mysuperfoodscompany contacted me and asked if I would be interested in doing a product review for them.

Ginger Apple Pear Crisp Baked Oatmeal

Ginger Apple Pear Crisp Baked Oatmeal ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #baked #oatmeal #recipe

Adapted just slightly from my dear friend Ann at The Fountain Avenue Kitchen Did I tell you about my friend’s pear tree? While we were at the lake last weekend, the kids and I noticed this pear tree that was just LOADED with pears right at the edge of my friend’s yard. We thought oh it […]


Ginger Pear Apple Cobbler

Ginger Pear Apple Cobbler ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cobbler #recipe

We are at my friend’s lake house this morning. My sister brought a bunch of pears that quickly bruised and needed using and I had a bag of apples that I inherited from my neighbor. A cobbler seemed like just the thing. I remembered that I had brought along  some fresh ginger root … I […]


Twisted Apple Braid

Twisted Apple Braid ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #apple #recipe

I love to do cooking projects with my nieces and nephews whenever I see them. They are just the cutest little kitchen helpers! My 4-year-old niece especially loves to hang out in the kitchen with me (she also loves to do yoga poses … a girl after my own heart) and she sticks around through […]


Apple Cake with Coconut Caramel Drizzle

Apple Cake with Coconut Caramel Drizzle ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #apple #cake #recipe

My daughter loves apples … and caramel. When I returned from my work trip to Colorado, I got to see my boy the next morning after I returned … and then we had a quick lunch together before he had to be out on the soccer fields, but my girl was staying with her grandparents. I hadn’t […]
