Feast of the Seven Fishes Chowder

Feast of the Seven Fishes Chowder ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #seafood #chowder #recipe

There is an Italian tradition that fascinates me every Christmas when I hear my Italian foodie friends talk about it. The Feast of the Seven Fishes. It’s traditionally served on Christmas Eve. I’ve read about it a lot, but I’ve never experienced it. It’s not so much about actually eating seven fishes as it is […]


Creamy Creole Chicken Zoodles

Adapted from Texanerin Baking You know those rich, decadent cajun cream fettuccine dishes that they serve at Italian restaurants? This dish tastes JUST like that. The sauce is super creamy and rich … and somehow with the amazingly rich cajun cream sauce on top, the zucchini noodles actually trick the tongue into believing they are real noodles. The […]


Baked Butternut Brown Rice Risotto

Fresh sage and Asiago cheese really balance out the sweetness of the squash and the brown rice gives it a nutty taste, creating a savory, comforting, creamy rice dish that I just want to snuggle up with as the chill of December settles upon us.

Spicy Chorizo Zuppa Toscana

Spicy Chorizo Zuppa Toscana ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sausage #kale #soup #recipe

I was gifted some kale from my sister’s garden … and I just dreamed of making a sausage, potato, & kale soup … I said this to one of my friends and they said … “oh, you mean Zuppa Toscana, like Olive Garden?” … uh, yeah. I hadn’t thought of that, somehow (I very rarely go […]


Sweet Pepper Asiago Zucchini Tots

Sweet Pepper Asiago Zucchini Tots ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #zucchini #recipe

When I did my kid-friendly cooking class and I shared my broccoli cheddar tots with my friends, I also made up a batch of these zucchini tots so my friends could sample the tots with a different “featured” veggie. Zucchini is marvelous in tots because it has such a mild flavor and it just soaks […]

Sausage & Kale Frittata ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Sausage #Kale #Breakfast #Recipe

Zucchini Chanterelle Brown Rice Risotto

A creamy, nutty, comforting risotto that is much easier to make than traditional risotto … the rice is baked in the oven, rather than cooked on the stovetop with constant stirring like traditional risotto. This risotto is finished with about 5 minutes of stirring stovetop,  which brings out the starches from the rice and makes that […]


Tomato Basil Quinoa Scrambled Eggs

Tomato Basil Quinoa Scrambled Eggs with Kale ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #eggs #kale #breakfast #recipe

Wild Mushroom & Sausage White Pizza ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #mushroom #pizza #recipe

with Rachael Ray’s Pizza Crust (adapted for the bread machine) Have you ever had a white pizza?  The first time I encountered a white pizza, I have to admit I was a little befuddled.

Asiago Mushroom Moussaka ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Greek #Lasagna #Recipe

with gluten free options. For those of you who have never had Moussaka, it’s sort of like a Greek version of lasagna, except it uses thin slices of eggplant in place of the noodles and it’s spiced in a lovely Greek sort of manner … and there’s no ricotta, but there’s a wonderful cheesy bechamel sauce on […]

Pesto Spinach Shrimp Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #lowfat #greekyogurt #cheesy #shrimp #dip

Last week I had the munchies something serious, so I decided to make myself a good (healthy) dip. I’d just made some mixed herb pesto so I dug through the fridge/freezer to find other things to put in my dip. This is what I came up with … and it was a mighty scrumptious dip, […]
