Fresh Blueberry Apricot Coffee Cake

Blueberry Apricot Coffee Cake ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #breakfast #cake #recipe

Adapted from Freeing my Martha Fresh apricots and blueberries make for delightful breakfast coffee cake that goes oh-so-perfectly with coffee or (my favorite morning beverage) chai tea. I know the chai purists will chastise me for saying “chai tea” because technically “chai” is the word for “tea”, but in the US, there are soooo many […]


Apricot Grape Cauliflower Salad

Apricot Grape Cauliflower Salad with honey mustard yogurt dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #colorful #easy #cauliflower #salad #recipe

with honey mustard yogurt dressing A delightful little salad with a pleasant mixture of flavors and such vibrant colors. The first time I tasted this salad, I was surprised. Many months ago, one of my friends brought a marvelous cauliflower grape salad to a potluck and I was shocked at how good it tasted. I never, […]


Honey Banana Apricot Yoghurt Smoothie

Honey Banana Apricot Yoghurt Smoothie ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #apricot #smoothie #recipe #noosayoghurt

My Saturday morning routine has been missing a good yoga class, so I went to a new yoga class Saturday morning. I’ve been wanting to go to this class for weeks, but just haven’t been in town … we’ve been so busy going places this summer! I am trying to really enjoy summer while it’s here this year, […]


Fresh Apricot Ginger Peasant Cake

Fresh Apricot Ginger Peasant Cake ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cake #dessert #recipe

Adapted slightly from The Luna Cafe I was smitten with this cake the instant I saw it … especially since mom and dad still have bunches of fresh apricots from their tree that need using. The Luna Cafe describes this cake as “a simple, earthy cake in the clafouti tradition and a delicious vehicle for late summer fruit […]


Apricot Date Nut Baked Oatmeal

Apricot Date Nut Baked Oatmeal ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #apricot #breakfast #recipe

I am not done yet with apricots! There is still a little box full of them in my fridge and I am dreaming up even more ways to enjoy them. If you know my fascination with baked oatmeals, you would know I really just HAD to try apricots in a baked oatmeal. Apricots intensify when baked. […]


Apricot Almond Chicken Salad

Apricot Almond Chicken Salad with Goat Cheese, Vidalia Onion and a Honey Chipotle Apricot Vinaigrette ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dinner #salad #recipe

with Goat Cheese, Sweet Vidalia Onions and a Honey Chipotle Apricot Vinaigrette With all the apricots my dad gave me from his tree, I HAD to make a salad. And he gave me a jar of apricot puree that he’d made too … that was just begging to become a dressing. I didn’t realize just how […]


Apricot Mint Dessert Salsa

Apricot Mint Dessert Salsa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert #salsa #recipe

We had a salsa contest at work yesterday. I had already made a salsa over the weekend … I was ready. Then one of my coworkers/friends came over and as we were working through an issue for our client, we got to talking about the salsa. She was in prime form because she started talking […]


Peanut Butter Apricot Bars {No Bake}

Peanut Butter Apricot Bars ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chocolate #pb&j #light #dessert #recipe

I finally relented … I went into the kitchen fully to make Lauren Kelly’s lightened up peanut butter chocolate bars, but my apricots started talking to me. I was minding my own business, trying to follow the recipe as best I could (sans the sucanat, of which I have none) and the (partly-eaten) bag of dried apricots […]


Carrot Lime Salad & a Cookbook Review

I’m venturing out into new salad territory … thanks to a new cookbook I received in the mail to review. My friend Sonali at The Foodie Physician asked if I’d be willing to do a review for The Complete Book of Raw Food cookbook. I thought about it for a moment and then I said, […]


Maple Spice Greek Yogurt & Fruit Parfait

Maple Spice Greek Yogurt Fruit Parfait ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #parfait #recipe

This was a Saturday morning pre-yoga breakfast. Typically on Saturday mornings, I wake up, start my facebook party, make myself a cup of chai and then I spend altogether too much time looking at yummy foods. In a last-minute panic, I usually throw some frozen fruit & yogurt into the blender, pour it into a […]


Pumpkin Chai Apricot Granola … & Interval Training

Pumpkin Chai Granola with Apricots ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chai #granola #recipe

I’ve discovered a secret … okay, it’s not a great epiphany or anything, but I’ve found a way to motivate myself to exercise on the weekends when I’d much rather relax, cook a lot of wonderful tasting things, hang out with my foodie friends (in person and/or online) and drink tea and wine. See, here’s […]


Drunk n Nutty Pumpkin Amaretto Fruitcake

Drunk n Nutty Pumpkin Amaretto Fruitcake

I don’t know about you, but at our house we sometimes get a little drunk and  nutty over the holidays, so I’m thinking this fruitcake will fit right in! Don’t be scared: this fruitcake is something any “nut” on your list would LOVE to dig into. A sweet pumpkin cake laced with amaretto and rum, filled […]


Pumpkin Apricot Oatmeal Pie

Pumpkin Apricot Oatmeal Pie

If you bake it in a pie pan, it’s a pie, right? I am naming this a Pumpkin Apricot Oatmeal Pie to distinguish it from the mushy stuff you usually think of as oatmeal. Don’t get me wrong: I love a hot steamy bowl of oatmeal, but this definitely doesn’t have that soft mushy texture […]


Apricot Chicken Salad on Wild Greens

Apricot Chicken Salad with Blue Cheese & Cinnamon Pecans

with Blue Cheese, Cinnamon Pecans, and a Honey Lemon Ginger White Wine Vinaigrette It was a “make do with what you’ve got” kinda lunch day. I thought I would have a salad, but I didn’t have enough greens left to fill my bowl. So I went scrounging in my yard for greens. My spinach is still […]


Cashew Salmon with Apricot Cranberry Quinoa

Cashew Salmon with Apricot Cranberry Quinoa and a Cumin Cilantro Ginger Yogurt Sauce

with a ginger, cumin & cilantro scented yogurt sauce One of the most romantic meals of my life was on a Friday night when my date and I cooked this together. We drank wine as we cooked, I chopped the apricots & garlic & ginger and mixed up the sauce, he made the quinoa and […]


Chocolate Dipped Cranberry Apricot Energy Balls

Chocolate Dipped Cranberry Apricot Energy Balls

The idea for these has been floating around in my head for weeks … I wanted to make a little ball of goodness that would be great for quick energy on the go, something with protein and fruit and a few carbs so it would give my body lots of the things it needs before […]
