A creamy butternut squash soup that balances the sweetness of the squash with the salty smokiness of bacon, shredded Gruyere cheese, fresh sage and a bit of chipotle pepper to make it dance on your tongue.

Do you have any foodies on your Christmas list? My family is full of foodies … and I have lots of friends that are foodies too.

Denver Omelet Stuffed Potato Skins

Denver Omelet Stuffed Potato Skins ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #breakfast #potato #skins #recipe

I made baked potato soup for my son last week, and when I was scooping the flesh out for the soup, I was very careful to leave a little bit of potato edge in the skins, saving them for ME … you see, I absolutely adore crispy crunchy potato skins. I couldn’t wait to bake […]


Thanksgiving Stuffed Mushrooms

Thanksgiving Stuffed Mushrooms  ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Thanksgiving #Leftovers #Recipe

Well another Thanksgiving has passed us by … only one of my sisters came to my parents’ place this year. My sisters aren’t speaking to each other right now, so I guess I only get to see one at a time. I wish they would make peace … I have only heard one side, but […]

Twice Baked Cauli-Tatoes

Twice Baked Cauli-Tatoes | Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #bacon #potato #recipe

It’s almost time for Thanksgiving … one of my favorite holidays of the year. I’m so excited! But it’s also a time when it’s hard to stick to your healthy eating goals. Since most people gain weight over the holidays, at work, we have a #ProjectZero challenge where (for those who accept the challenge) we […]


Bacon Mushroom Zucchini Fried Rice

Bacon Mushroom Zucchini Fried Rice ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #bacon #zucchini #friedrice #recipe

Bacon-y goodness comes to fried rice, with hearty mushrooms and zucchini, carrots and red onion, and, of course, copious amounts of scrambled eggs. It’s an irresistable combination to anyone who loves fried rice. (Do you know anyone who doesn’t love fried rice? I don’t think I do …) The idea of bacon fried rice came to […]


Cheesy Bacon Zucchini Pie

Cheesy Bacon Zucchini Pie ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #zucchini #egg #pie #recipe

A melty cheesy pie made with zucchini, bacon, onion, garlic and eggs. Enjoy it for breakfast, or brunch, or dinner, or anytime! I made a full cup of millet when I made the veggie-licious millet cakes, mostly because I’ve never tried making anything with millet and I was curious what else I could do with […]


Easy Breakfast Chilaquiles

Easy Breakfast Chilaquiles ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Mexican #breakfast #casserole #recipe

There is this thing in California that I didn’t quite “get” until I tried it … one of my friends used to order these every single morning for breakfast and she would just RAVE about them. I struggled to understand her obsession. Chilaquiles is a traditional Mexican dish that’s really very simple in concept. You […]


Breakfast Nachos Supreme

Breakfast Nachos Supreme ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fun #Mexican #breakfast #recipe

Nachos for breakfast! Now THIS is an amazing way to start a day. Breakfast nachos are something I have been wanting to try for a while … and I don’t know exactly why I haven’t. The other day the subject came up at work and we decided we need to make these for our monthly […]


Bourbon Bacon Baked Beans

Bacon Bourbon Baked Beans ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #decadent #bakedbeans #recipe #glutenfree

with chipotle … Adapted from How Sweet it is Although I have a life-long love of beans, I have a small confession for you: when I was a kid I used to make baked bean sandwiches. They were great treats, with beans spread out on slices of store-bought white bread. Today that thought makes me cringe, but […]


Bacon Mushroom Smoked Cheddar Risotto

Bacon Mushroom Smoked Cheddar Risotto ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #baked #brownrice #risotto #recipe

Adapted from Cookie & Kate Yesterday morning I went swimming–it’s my new workout thing (alongside yoga–my other workout fave). As I was swimming, I let my mind drift off and wander about and was happy to find myself ruminating on what I should make for lunch. I thought about all the cheese in my fridge that […]


Bacon Chocolate Chipotle Popcorn

Bacon Chocolate Chipotle Popcorn ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sweet #spicy #popcorn #gift #recipe

  This popcorn is so simple and such a simple gift to make for your friends and family this holiday season! My boyfriend is responsible for this post … I asked him if he likes popcorn (because I frickin’ LOVE popcorn) and, much to my dismay, he said he isn’t a big popcorn fan … but […]


Bacon Cheddar Jalapeno Corn Muffins

Bacon Cheddar Jalapeno Corn Muffins ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #cornbread #muffin #recipe w #glutenfree option

Delightfully moist and wonderful corn muffins with real corn, bacon, sharp cheddar cheese and jalapeno peppers to give them a little bite. Sure to become a favorite. They aren’t very spicy, but feel free to tone down the amount of jalapeno (or omit it) if you’re sensitive to heat. I made these delightful little corn […]


Bacon Jalapeno Popper Potato Skins

Bacon Jalapeno Popper Potato Skins ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #appetizer #recipe

I had this brilliant idea to combine two of my favorite appetizers and use up all the potato skins after I made that scrumptious bacon cheddar chipotle potato soup. I was careful when I scooped out the potato to leave a little edge on all the skins so I could transform them into something marvelous. […]


Bacon Cheddar Chipotle Potato Soup

Bacon Cheddar Chipotle Potato Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesy #spicy #smoky #potato #soup #recipe

Creamy, cheesy potato soup with the spicy smoky zing of chipotle peppers and a bit of bacon to add to the smokiness. I made it gluten free by using tapioca flour for the thickener, but you can use regular flour if you don’t have a sensitivity to gluten. I made this soup for a little […]


Beef Rouladen

Beef Rouladen (German Pickle & Bacon Stuffed Beef Rolls) ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #German #dinner #recipe

German Beef Rolls Stuffed with Mustard, Pickles & Bacon in a Beer Gravy … adapted slightly from Quick German Recipes Who else but the Germans would think of stuffing a roll of meat with mustard, pickles and bacon? This is the entree I made for our German cooking class. I was totally intrigued from the […]


Bacon Spinach Wild Mushroom Risotto

Bacon Spinach Wild Mushroom Risotto ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Italian #risotto #recipe

A wonderfully creamy, cheesy risotto (Italian rice) with bits of bacon, onion, bell pepper and spinach intertwined. The flavors blend so perfectly.

Smoky Bacon & Zucchini Corn Chowder ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #smoky #chowder #soup #recipe

A hearty corn chowder with a nice creamy broth, bits of smoky grilled zucchini and bacon, and a little hot pepper to tingle the taste buds.

Bacon Goat Cheese Heirloom Tomato Galette

Bacon Goat Cheese Heirloom Tomato Galette ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #savory #tomato #pie #recipe

I have been working on this recipe for a while … the cheese mixture I had down on the first try. It was the crust I struggled with. First I tried it with a phyllo pastry crust, but the crust was too dry. I am not sure what I did wrong … I’ve had good […]


Bacon Cheddar Zucchini Tots

Bacon Cheddar Zucchini Tots ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #zucchini #sidedish #appetizer #snack #recipe

Adapted from The Two Bite Club I’ve had this zucchini tots recipe from The Two Bite Club saved away for ages it seems, just waiting for zucchini season. It was so hard to wait! I know, I really could have bought zucchini and made it … I have been buying zucchini when I don’t have fresh garden […]


Bacon Zucchini Asiago Fresco Frittata & a Black Cube Product Review

Bacon Zucchini Asiago Fresco Frittata and a Black Cube Frying Pan Product Review ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #egg #brunch #recipe & #productreview

It has felt like Christmas in July at my house the past couple days. I’ve had a few different people contact me asking if I’d like to try their products. I love times like this–it makes all the work of the blog seem a little more worthwhile. Not that it isn’t a joy to do […]

Bacon Cheddar Chive Cheeseballs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #appetizer #snack #party #recipe

I am in party mode this week, my friends, preparing for our semi-annual event that I do with my artist friends. We have a grand time drinking wine and talking with all the people to come look at/purchase art and home furnishings … and eating grand food. This is one of the items I plan […]


Easy Cheesy BLT Spirals

Easy Cheese BLT Spirals ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheese #bacon #sundriedtomato #appetizer #recipe

I didn’t quite intend these to look so “St. Patrick’s Day”-ish, but I love the way they turned out. The parsley looks so “shamrock”-ish on top, doesn’t it? You see, it just so happened I had some of those giganto-saurus spinach tortillas left from the wraps I made the other day and a quandary over […]
