Very Berry Ice Cream Float

Very Berry Ice Cream Float ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #icecream #float #recipe

July is National Ice Cream Month. Normally, I’m not a “drink my calories” kinda gal, but every once in a while, you gotta give in and have a summer treat, especially when we’re right in the middle of National Ice Cream Month and the temperatures outside are soaring. We’ve been very lucky this summer. Temperatures have […]

Gluten Free Berry Rum Cake ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #glutenfree #rum #cake #recipe

Adapted from Gluten Free on a Shoestring My gluten free friend Kelly recently had a birthday. I wanted to make her something special for her birthday and at the time, I was swimming in mulberries. I asked her if she would like a mulberry rum cake for her birthday. She said she wasn’t sure … […]


Mixed Berry Dessert Nachos

Mixed Berry Dessert Nachos ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #redwhite&blue #easy #dessert #recipe

I am doing a Mexican cooking class today at work. Cooking is not my job, but I do these for fun for my coworkers, once a month (or so), at lunchtime. The company reimburses me for the cost of the food. It’s a lot of work and I don’t get paid for it, but I […]


Mixed Berry Bread Pudding

Mixed Berry Bread Pudding ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #berry #dessert #recipe

with Drunken Limoncello Berry Sauce I have been on a de-cluttering mission lately, so I cleaned out my freezer in my fridge yesterday. I discovered that I had several partially used containers of frozen berries as well as some freezer jam that we’d totally forgotten about. I decided those precious berries and jam needed to be used up right […]


Mango Chicken Mulberry Salad

Mango Chicken Mulberry Salad with Mango Lavender Key Lime Yogurt Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dinner #salad #recipe

With Mango Lavender Key Lime Yogurt Dressing I bought a mango a while ago, dreaming of a mango chicken salad. At the time I bought the mango, I had intended to make it with strawberries, but then the mulberries started and I just HAD to use them on my salad. I went out with my […]


Berry Good Purple Cow Ice Cream Float

Homemade Purple Cow Ice Cream Float ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #drink #recipe

This idea dawned on me when we were out at the folk music festival and the “root beer guy” was there, selling root beer, root beer floats, orange and grape soda and of course Purple Cow Ice Cream Floats! I’ve been making Italian cream sodas for years … don’t know why it never occurred to […]


Mulberry Maple Oatmeal Bread

Mulberry Maple Oatmeal Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #bread #recipe

with honey berry cheese spread My beautiful mulberry tree made the biggest, juiciest, blackest, most gorgeous and delicious berries ever this year! I picked 2 1/2 big ice cream pails full of berries before it even slowed down and was absolutely reveling in all the wonderful berries. I had berries in my yogurt, berries in […]


Black Raspberry White Chocolate Scones

Black Raspberry White Chocolate Scones ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #scone #recipe

Adapted from Dannon’s Summer Berry Scones There is a local coffee shop in our town that makes the best raspberry white chocolate scones. They only serve them on weekend mornings and if you don’t get there early enough, you won’t get a scone because they ALWAYS run out of them. I used to crave those scones, […]


Lemon Berry Sherbet

Lemon Berry Sherbet ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sherbet #recipe

I got this recipe from my sister. Leave it to my sister to find the perfect sherbet recipe. She has the best recipes. I could never seem to find the right mix of ingredients for sherbet. When we went to visit my parents a couple weekends ago, they had just made strawberry sherbet with fresh […]

It feels too hot this evening to eat, but a nice Friday night cocktail sounds like just the thing. If you were going to have a secret garden romance, this is the beverage to sip on with your lover. The sweet scent of roses, the taste of berries with a kiss of lemon, what could […]

Fresh Lemon Berry Yogurt Cake

Fresh Lemon Berry Yogurt Cake ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cake #recipe

Adapted just slightly from Manila Spoon. When I saw Manila Spoon’s beautiful strawberry cake, I immediately wanted to make it. The morning that I saw the recipe, it just so happened that I needed to stop at the store and the store I had stopped at just happened to be having a sale on strawberries. So […]


Banana Berry Passion Yogurt Smoothie & an Ice Storm

Banana Berry Passion Yogurt Smoothie ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #smoothie #recipe

Blogging when you have a full-time job is done sometimes in bits and pieces. This smoothie was my speedy breakfast before yoga Saturday morning. On Saturday it was a nice spring day and I spent the entire day running around in my tank top with no jacket. On Saturday there was no time to blog. […]

Mulberry, Sausage and Couscous Salad

I am sooooo excited! It’s mulberry season! I have this beautiful beautiful mulberry tree in my back yard … well, really, there are several in my yard, but the one that grows over my pond is the most prolific. I was worried she wouldn’t make any berries this year because it was a very unusually […]

It was raining this morning and I’d been gone all weekend. I needed to bake something. I have these frozen apples in a bag my friend gave me for making apple pies, but I’m not so good at pies. Have I mentioned my fear of crusts? I am not good with pie crust … and […]
