Bacon Avocado & Egg Quesadilla

Bacon, Avocado & Egg Quesadilla ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #breakfast #recipe

Ever wake up (or come back from yoga class) and you just want a really good breakfast? Something savory with a nice egg, a bit of crunch, with some melty cheese and bacon, and a little bit of kick? That’s what I was hankering for the morning I created this. It was such a simple, […]

This recipe is an interesting balance of decadent and healthy ingredients to make a delightfully creamy mint ice cream laced with Irish cream liqueur and little bits of minted chocolate that’s perfect for St. Patrick’s Day (or any day when you want a little mint chocolate ice cream).

Creamy Cucumber Avocado Pasta Sauce ~ super simple sauce that tastes like summer! from Sumptuous Spoonfuls

Adapted from The Simple Veganista A fresh, quick, no-cook lemony sauce for pasta that tastes like summer. So welcome in the midst of the cold, gray winter when my spirits and the outdoor temperatures are low and I start to wonder what summer looks like. I swear, every year, I trudge on through life, but […]


Avocado Cilantro Lime Salad Dressing

Avocado Cilantro Lime Salad Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #salad #dressing #recipe

This is a bright, zippy salad dressing that is awesome on anything Mexican. I made this salad dressing to go on my Mexican Carnitas Cobb Salad, but  you could also use it as a sauce on chicken or to top an enchilada, taco or maybe as a dip with a quesadilla? So many possibilities … […]


Purple Potato Latkes (Potato Pancakes)

Purple Potato Latkes with Avocado Artichoke Dipping Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #potato #pancake #recipe

with Creamy Avocado Artichoke Dipping Sauce. Latkes adapted from epicurious and smitten kitchen. Latkes are not something I normally undertake. If you’re not familiar with latkes, they are a savory pan-fried potato pancake, kinda like a hashbrown patty. Personally, I tend to shy away from fried foods … they might taste good, but they make me feel […]


Triple A Dip (Avocado Asiago & Artichoke)

Triple A Dip (Avocado Asiago & Artichoke) ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dip #recipe

I’ve had the munchies something fierce the past couple days. I have just wanted something crunchy, salty, something to take my mind off things, to quell this nervous energy that is coursing my veins. It’s been a strange week. Weird things are happening to the people around me, reminding me that the small problems I […]


Turkey Avocado BLT Sandwich

Turkey Avocado Bacon Lettuce & Tomato Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #BLT #recipe

I modeled this sandwich after one I had downtown at the Diner. The sandwich was SO good, I wrapped up the other half that I couldn’t eat for later … and then I was so sad when I left it on the table. So when I came home and found my little tomato plant had […]


Pesto Grilled Fish Tacos with Avocado Pico de Gallo

Pesto Grilled Fish Tacos with Avocado Pico de Gallo ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fish #taco #recipe

I became a big fan of fish tacos when I lived in California. It sounded strange to me at first, but once I tried them, I was totally hooked. Now whenever I am faced with fish leftovers, I make some fish tacos. They are so easy, quick and such a nice twist on fish. This […]


Chicken Mango Avocado Salad

Chicken Mango Avocado Salad with Rosemary Maple Yogurt Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #salad #recipe

with Rosemary Maple Yogurt Dressing & Toasted Pinons Sometimes when I’m at yoga and I’m doing the “listening to your body” part, I hear my body screaming for certain foods. Tonight my body was screaming for chicken … partly because our power yoga class was particularly challenging this evening and partly because I hadn’t eaten […]


Asparagus Guacamole

Asparagus Guacamole ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #asparagus #recipe

I showed up at my parents’ place for one of our early summer get-togethers with the fixin’s for Taco Cups as requested by my nephew a couple weeks ago and we decided we needed some guacamole to go with them. The task fell to my dad to make them because I was busy with the […]

Chicken Bacon Ranch Salad with Avocado & Herb Buttermilk Ranch Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #salad #recipe

with a fresh homemade herb buttermilk ranch dressing Mixed greens topped with crispy chicken, bits of bacon, tomato, sweet onion, and avocado, drizzled with a creamy homemade herb ranch.

Triple Green Crunchwrap Supreme

Triple Green Crunchwrap Supreme ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #crunchwrap #recipe

Have you ever been to Taco Bell and had their Crunchwrap Supreme? They take a tostada shell, add some taco meat and toppings and wrap a large flour tortilla around it, and grill it. It’s really a cool idea for a portable Mexican style “sandwich” with a crunch factor, except I always wanted a little […]


Creamy Green Avocado Cilantro Bean Dip

Creamy Avocado Cilantro Bean Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #avocado #dip #recipe

I’m going a little International fusion cuisine on you here. This pretty green dip is a cross between hummus, guacamole and pesto. It’s an idea that’s been floating around in my head for a while … but I just hadn’t quite perfected it to my liking yet. Last weekend I decided it was time to […]


Balsamic Avocado Cheese Dip

Balsamic Avocado Cheese Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #avocado #cheese #dip #recipe

A creamy dip with avocado, cream cheese and a hint of balsamic vinaigrette. It goes perfect with chips, crackers, and vegies. I wanted to make an avocado dip that wasn’t guacamole. I started by mixing up a mashed avocado with a package of cream cheese and then started looking for something different to add to […]


Tomato Avocado Pepperjack Breakfast Sandwich

Tomato Avocado Pepperjack Breakfast Sandwich ~ SumptuousSpoonfuls.com #egg #breakfast #avocado #recipe

This is a “my daughter didn’t eat all her eggs and I’m starving” kinda recipe. Yes, I am one of those moms that eats what their kids don’t. But I add a little twist it to make it taste better for ME. In this case, I simply took half an english muffin, toasted it, set […]

Tortilla soup is one of the most marvelous things in life. It’s got everything going for it: the lovely crunch of the tortilla chips, the oozy melted cheese, tasty Mexican flavors, the soothing comfort of a hot bowl of soup. Plus it’s great for your sinuses and your health and it’s so easy to make. […]


Bulgur Black Bean Salad with Tomato & Avocado

Bulgur Black Bean & Fresh Tomato Salad with Avocado & Jalapeno

My friend gave me some cooked bulgur when we went camping together … in a way, I wonder if she gave it to me just so she could see what I would do with it. I brought it home. It sat in the fridge till I was nearly sure it must have gone bad already […]


Hummus Havarti Harvest Pizza

Hummus Havarti Harvest Pizza

I woke up early this morning. There is a chill in the air. It is cool enough to open the windows and to sit on the patio and have a cup of tea. The fresh air smells so wonderful after the stale air conditioned air I’ve been breathing all summer. There are tomatoes on my […]


Zucchini Avocado Quesadilla

Zucchini Avocado Quesadilla

So in case you haven’t noticed, the ingredient of the week (month?) is zucchini at my house. My sis brought me several zucchini, some beautiful stripey Italian zucchini and some plain green ones, some big, some little. I love zucchini season because it makes me get really creative in the kitchen, trying to think of […]


Smashed Chickpea & Avocado Salad Sandwich

Smashed Chickpea & Avocado Sandwich

Why does the idea of smashing a chickpea sound so appealing? I think it’s for the same reason that hitting something hard at TaeKwonDo feels good. It’s all those little things in life that just make you angry that you will never mention to the person that is bugging you because you’re just too nice […]


Egg on a Salad with Sundried Tomato Ranch

Egg on a Salad with Avocado, Sweet Onion, Hosta Flowers & Sundried Tomato Ranch Dressing

Let’s re-define the idea of egg salad, shall we? I mean, who decided that “egg salad” should be a bunch of chopped hardboiled eggs with mayonnaise on bread? Excuse me, but how is that a salad? I don’t mean to knock the traditional egg salad sandwich … there’s a comforting charm in a well-made egg salad […]


Herbed Baked Eggs in a Bread “Bowl” with Avocado

Herbed Baked Egg in a Bun with Avocado, 2 Cheeses & Balsamic Sundried Tomato Ketchup

topped with Havarti and Gorgonzola cheese & a Balsamic Sundried Tomato “Ketchup” It wasn’t very long ago I saw this great idea for baking eggs in a bread bowl … just hollow out some hard rolls, crack your egg in there, add some seasonings and voila! A beautiful breakfast. But you know me, I couldn’t […]


Cheddar Chile Chicken Avocado Sandwich on Focaccia

Cheddar Chile Chicken Avocado Sandwich on Toasted Focaccia

I had PLANNED to eat a salad today for lunch, but then the thunderstorms came … loudly announcing their arrival then drenching the world with a sudden rush of raindrops. It was wild and refreshing, definitely needed … but chilly. So the salad I thought would be just perfect for a hot summer day didn’t […]
