Ham Bone & Chickpea Soup

Ham Bone & Chickpea Soup ~Sumptuous Spoonfuls #homemade #ham #bean #soup #recipe

It’s a cold, wet, rainy spring day with a brisk wind that almost feels wintry … the kind of day that just chills you to the bone … and your body just yearns a nice comforting bowl of hot, piping soup. This is a hearty soup to cuddle up with and let it surround you with […]


Three-Cheese Broccoli Potato Soup

Three Cheese Broccoli Potato Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #broccoli #potato #soup #recipe

If you can’t decide whether you want Broccoli Cheddar Soup or Cheesy Potato Soup, why not have both in one bowl? This is a soup that tastes oh so super creamy and rich and cheesy with all the comfort of potato soup AND the rich cheesiness of Broccoli cheddar soup, but with a surprising healthy twist and a […]


German Onion Soup {Zwiebelsuppe}

German Onion Soup {Zwiebelsuppe} ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #German #onion #soup #recipe

The blonde cousin of French Onion Soup, this German Onion Soup (or Zwiebelsuppe as they would say in Germany) uses chicken or vegetable broth rather than beef broth and the subtle flavors of nutmeg and thyme to provide a touch of intrigue. Topped as most onion soups are with toasted bread and melty white cheese, this soup is […]


Biswa’s Winning Chicken Curry

Biswa's Winning Chicken Curry ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #amazing #chicken #curry #recipe

We had a little soup/chili competition at work a while ago and Biswa, one of my coworkers, brought this ah-mazing chicken curry … he won first prize at the competition. EVERYONE (and I mean every single person who tasted it!) was raving about it, so he wrote up and shared his recipe. The only problem […]


Smoky Bacon & Zucchini Corn Chowder

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. I made this soup last week after a trip to my parents’ house, from whence I returned over-burdened with garden goodies. I had some zucchini that I had grilled […]


Creamy Mushroom Soup

Creamy Mushroom Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #soup #recipe

A simple mushroom soup that’s wonderfully creamy and delightful and warm. I had an “aha” moment when I made my Bacon Mushroom Baked Potato Soup … at the point where I had puree’d the mushrooms & onions and such, before I added the potato and milk, that right there was a mighty tasty creamy-wonderful thing. I could […]


Split Pea Soup w Ham, Potato & Smoked Gouda

Split Pea Soup with Ham, Potato & Smoked Gouda Cheese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #hearty #splitpea #potato #soup #recipe

I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for over three years now and I’ve posted over 1,000 recipes and I’ve never posted a single recipe for split pea soup! That’s just crazy. I’m a split pea soup lover and I have been from the time I was little. I remember eating cans of split pea soup as a child and […]


Creamy Rosemary Sage Pumpkin Soup

Creamy Rosemary Sage Pumpkin Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #creamy #savory #pumpkin #soup #recipe

with goat cheese crumbles A savory thick and creamy pumpkin soup with sage and fresh rosemary. The goat cheese is just the right tangy creamy touch to finish it. I baked up a pumpkin with visions of a roasted pumpkin salad like I’d seen in photos around the web. The only thing was, once I’d roasted the […]


King Ranch Chicken Soup

King Ranch Chicken Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesy #green #chile #chicken #soup #recipe

I’m a northern girl, but my ex-husband is from Texas. Many, many years ago when we lived a lot further south than we do now, he mentioned King Ranch Chicken to me, I think hoping that I would make it for him. I did look up the recipe and thought it looked good, but not […]


Pepperjack Potato Leek Soup

Pepperjack Potato Leek Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls#cheesy #potato #leek #soup #recipe #glutenfree

A super creamy potato leek soup with a little carrot & tomato to add color and a little tingle of heat from the peppers in the cheese. This is the last of the leek recipes. I’ve now officially used up all the leeks that my sister gave me from her garden. I’m a little sad, […]

Spiedies {Legendary Italian Marinated Meat Kebabs}

Spiedies: Legendary Italian Meat Kebabs

My Italian friend Linda tells me “the name Spiedies has nothing to do with speed and everything to with the Big Daddy of spiedies which is spiedini, the Italian kebab or skewered and grilled meat.” Spiedies are an upstate New York Italian favorite that really started in the Middle East. When the Middle Eastern conquerors invaded Italy, they brought […]


Annz Philly Cheesesteak French Dipz

Annz Philly Cheesesteak French Dipz

I think I always want French Dips in the fall. But a French Dip isn’t entirely what I want –what I REALLY want is a Philly Cheesesteak sandwich with the onions and peppers piled high and lots of melted cheese oozing all over AND I want that tasty au jus for dipping my cheesesteak sandwich. Most […]


My Sister’s Simple Trick for Cooking Beans

A Simple Trick for Cooking Beans

Somehow I had convinced myself I couldn’t cook beans. I had tried and tried and every time I tried to cook up some dried beans, they just didn’t have the flavor I wanted. I could make a great chili and soups with beans IN them, but I couldn’t manage to cook up plain old beans […]
