Copycat Nebraska Runzas

Copycat Nebraska Runza Pocket Sandwiches ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #beef #cabbage #sandwich #recipe

Guided by tips from here, the Runza web site and bunches of other posts … Nebraska is a nearby state. There’s a thing in Nebraska that I never quite understood … well, okay, there are a couple things in Nebraska that I don’t really get. First of all, they’re really really really serious about their football. I don’t […]


Roasted Cauliflower Nachos

Roasted Cauliflower Nachos ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #healthy #CincoDeMayo #recipe

Crispy roasted cauliflower topped with melted cheese and classic Mexican nacho toppings makes for a delightful, healthy appetizer (or meal)! I bought a head of cauliflower on a whim a while ago, not sure what I’d make with it, but there it was, on the veggie shelf, staring at me. What was I supposed to […]


Cheesy Cottage Pie

Cheesy Cottage Pie ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #beef #potato #pie #recipe

A hearty, comforting meat pie with cheesy potato “crust” that is surprisingly healthy, yet delightful, comforting meal. Carrots, sweet peas, broccoli and onions add flavor, texture, color, fiber and nutrients. After my daughter’s birthday party, I found myself with leftover beef piroshki filling (from the party) AND also there were leftover mashed potatoes in the fridge. […]

BBQ Cheddar Mini Meatloaves

Barbecue Cheddar Mini Meatloaves ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #kidfriendly #meatloaf #recipe

It’s International Cook with your Kids day! I absolutely love cooking with kids and have done endless cooking projects with all the kids in my life … both mine and my sister’s kids. If I had other kids in my life, chances are I’d pull them into the kitchen with me too. Kids make cooking […]


Garden Harvest Moussaka

Garden Harvest Moussaka {Greek Lasagna} ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #layered #Greek #hotdish #recipe

A hearty, meaty, comforting layered casserole with enticing spices, Moussaka is the Greek version of lasagna. I lighten mine up and make it a little easier to make as well by using yogurt whisked with some eggs to make the bechamel sauce for the top. Moussaka tastes like home to me … it’s a dish […]

Baharat Beef with Zucchini

Baharat Beef with Zucchini ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #groundbeef #recipe

Adapted from Kalyn’s Kitchen My little garden is producing mint like mad and I’ve been looking for fun new ways to enjoy it. This marvelous Mediterranean dish is one of my recent discoveries that I found on my search for good uses for mint.  It’s spicy, but in a warm, pleasant sort of way. It’s super-flavorful from the […]


Swiss Cheeseburger Stuffed Mushrooms

Swiss Cheeseburger Stuffed Mushrooms ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #mushroom #swiss #burger #appetizer

Think mushroom swiss burger in bite-size form. These juicy little bites are so pretty and fun to serve and they taste just like mushroom swiss burgers! I mixed some quinoa and spinach into the lean burger meat so they are healthy too. The ketchup, mustard, and onion are mixed into the meat too. We had our Easter […]


Slow Cooker Drunken Irish Stew

Slow Cooker Drunken Irish Stew ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Guinness #Irish #Stew #Recipe

I made this stew by request … I was discussing with my friend Seth at The Little Cellar Wine Company what recipes to feature in March for our monthly “wine and food tasting” event and he strongly suggested an Irish Stew. I could see the twinkle in his eye … that this was something he really […]


Six-pepper Venison Chili with Beans

Six-Pepper Venison Chili with Beans ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spicy #homemade #chili #recipe

This chili recipe has been sitting in my backlog of blog posts for almost a month now. At work at Christmas-time, they sponsored a card-making session where they provided cards, stickers, markers, etc. and encouraged us to make cards to send to our soldiers in the field. I thought it would be fun to do […]


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 […]


Beefy Quinoa Taco Stuffed Peppers

Beefy Quinoa Taco Stuffed Peppers ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Healthy #Dinner #Recipe

A hearty meal stuffed into a healthy pepper! Beefy taco meat, corn, queso, cilantro and quinoa stuffed into fresh bell pepper halves. Use a spicy large pepper in place of the bells if you want to kick it up a bit. I was lucky enough to inherit some of the gorgeous bell peppers from my mom […]


Cheese Stuffed Zucchini Herb Meatballs

Cheese Stuffed Zucchini Herb Meatballs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #meatball #recipe

I decided to have a big hurrah to say goodbye to summer … I took Thursday afternoon and Friday off so I could go up to visit my parents before the weekend started, since I had other plans for the rest of the weekend. While I was there, my cousin texted and asked if he […]


Mexican Zucchini Lasagna

Mexican Zucchini Lasagna ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #glutenfree #paleo #zucchini #mexican #lasagna #recipe

I had this brilliant idea to make a Mexican-inspired lasagna using zucchini in place of the lasagna noodles. I mixed ricotta with a little cumin, oregano, cilantro, chipotle powder and Mexican cheeses. In each layer I added taco meat, bell peppers and jalapeno, black beans, sweet corn, and in place of the tomato sauce I […]


Copycat Qdoba Taco Meat

Copycat Qdoba Taco Meat ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quick #easy #Qdoba #seasoned #groundbeef #recipe

Adapted from Qdoba At Home I don’t know exactly how long it has been, but we had a little celebration at work and they served up a “taco bar” from Qdoba. We all loved the food, but there was lots of the ground meat (and other stuff) leftover after the festivities were gone. How things […]


Mexican Taco Lettuce Wraps

Mexican Taco Lettuce Wraps ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #healthy #Mexican #taco #recipe

I have a cooking class to teach on Monday and I chose a Mexican theme for our class this month. We have a nutrition and an exercise program at work, so my classes are pretty much always “with a healthy spin” to fit with our corporate healthy initiative … but yeah, it’s not like this […]


Pot Roast Avocado Salad

Pot Roast Avocado Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cookonceeattwice #salad #recipe

with blue cheese crumbles and a spicy low-cal Sriracha Ranch dressing I’m a huge fan of cooking once, and eating new, creative meals not just once, but two or three times based on that first dish. It just makes cooking your follow-on meals so much easier! And you don’t have to deal with that awful […]


Philly Cheesesteak Soup

Philly Cheesesteak Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesy #beef #pepper & #onion #soup #recipe

If you were reading my blog last week, you may have seen the Crockpot Za’atar Pot Roast I made and I mentioned you should save the juices that the meat cooked in because we’re going to make some really good soup. You can also use the onions and garlic that the meat cooked in as […]


Crockpot Za’atar Pot Roast

Crockpot Za'atar Pot Roast ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #slowcooker #easy #beef or #venison #roast #recipe

I made this super simple roast for dinner for me and my two almost-adult-like children one day to go with our pillow biscuits. It’s a versatile recipe that you can use for the main course of a dinner, for the meat and au jus for a Philly Cheesesteak sandwich, or for a delicious meaty addition […]


Un-Stuffed Cabbage Casserole

Un-Stuffed Cabbage Casserole ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #beefy #cabbageroll #casserole #recipe

Someone posted an un-stuffed cabbage casserole and it brought back images of my childhood when I was very little and my mom made us stuffed cabbage leaves. Stuffed with ground beef and rice, they were all rolled up and sooo delicious. I’ve often thought that I’d like to make stuffed cabbage leaves like mom used […]


Beefy Taco Soup

Beefy Taco Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #beef #taco #Mexican #soup #recipe

Last week I had an unusually strong craving for red meat. I wanted a burger badly, and tacos, and anything else that contained some form of red meat. This is totally atypical for me, the lady who uses meat so rarely that people sometimes ask me, “are you a vegetarian?” No, I’m not. I am really more […]


Pedernales River Chili

Pedernales River Chili ~ Lyndon B Johnson's favorite chili recipe ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #presidential #meaty #chili #recipe

This meaty chili was Lyndon B Johnson’s favorite. My dad made it, and told me how good it was, and had me taste it. Now, I’m not normally a “meaty” chili kinda person–I tend to stray over towards the ones with beans and loads of veggies, not that I have anything AGAINST meat per se, […]
