Fresh Blueberry Apricot Coffee Cake

Blueberry Apricot Coffee Cake ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #breakfast #cake #recipe

Adapted from Freeing my Martha Fresh apricots and blueberries make for delightful breakfast coffee cake that goes oh-so-perfectly with coffee or (my favorite morning beverage) chai tea. I know the chai purists will chastise me for saying “chai tea” because technically “chai” is the word for “tea”, but in the US, there are soooo many […]


Blueberry Lavender Wine Rum Fizz

Blueberry Lavender Wine Rum Fizz ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #blueberry #cocktail #recipe

Blueberries and lavender simple syrup with spiced rum, white wine and club soda for sparkle. It’s a simple, beautiful and very refreshing summer cocktail! I made this gorgeous blueberry lavender simple syrup because for some reason I bought too many blueberries at the store. (Yeah, these things happen in my life … a lot.) Once […]


Blueberry Rhubarb Crisp

Blueberry Rhubarb Crisp ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #blueberry #rhubarb #dessert #recipe

Rhubarb and blueberries are beautiful companions. I just discovered this. I don’t know why I didn’t think of it earlier. Last summer I went all crazy on everything strawberry rhubarb, but in all my years of cooking, I never thought to pair blueberries with rhubarb. Perhaps it’s because of the overabundance of strawberries I see in the […]


Blueberry Lavender Truffles

Blueberry Lavender Truffles ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #blueberry #truffles #recipe

A lovely little sweet treat, laced with white chocolate, wild blueberries, a little cream cheese, vanilla and lavender, molded into pretty floral shapes. Of all the truffles I’ve made so far, these were my daughter’s favorite. I’m thinking this would be a lovely Mother’s Day gift … or perhaps a pretty treat to serve at a graduation […]


Wild Blueberry Pie

Wild Blueberry Pie ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert #recipe

If blueberry pie can be sexy, I gotta say, this one really is. It’s perfectly set, flavored just right with a lovely undertone of vanilla and a hint of lemon, but mostly just real blueberry flavor shining through. My daughter and I love to add a bit of pretty light whipped cream on top, you […]

Blueberry Gooseberry Oat Crumble

Blueberry Gooseberry Oat Crumble ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls#healthy #breakfast #berry #dessert #recipe

My friend had so many gooseberries on her gooseberry bush last summer that she froze an over-abundance of them and then convinced me that I just HAD to take some home with me. I relented without too much coaxing because I do love gooseberries. I discovered if you mix them with blueberries they compliment each […]


Blueberry Poached Pear Salad

Blueberry Poached Pear Salad with Candied Walnuts, Blue Cheese & a Raspberry Malbec Vinaigrette ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #gourmet #pear #salad #recipe

with blue cheese, candied walnuts and a raspberry malbec vinaigrette It’s still winter in my little corner of the world and today was a total chiller! Temperatures dropped back down below zero and I didn’t even want to look at the wind chill factor. When temps go down that low when I’m getting to the point when […]


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 […]


Honey Almond Blueberry Oatmeal

Honey Almond Blueberry Oatmeal ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #quick #hot #blueberry #breakfast #recipe

So last weekend I was contemplating what to do with these fresh blueberries I bought at the store and also dying for a healthy breakfast before I headed to the gym to work out. I contemplated making baked oatmeal because I love fruity baked oatmeals that are kinda dessert-like and yet also healthy enough to […]


Banana Blueberry Oatmeal Parfait

Banana Blueberry Oatmeal Parfait ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #overnight #oatmeal #parfait #makeahead #breakfast #inajar

It’s almost time for my second cooking class! I’m doing a class on make-ahead breakfasts this month and one of the things we’ll be making are overnight oatmeal breakfast parfaits. I’ve been making lots of different flavors to see which ones work best before the class, and this one turned out to be a total […]


Blueberry Mexican Mule

Blueberry Mexican Mule ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #blueberry #ginger #tequila #cocktail #recipe

I hear the latest craze in cocktails is the Moscow Mule. It’s served in a cute little copper mug and has become so “hip” that some of the bars have started taking a deposit if you order one (to reduce the number of copper mugs disappearing!) I didn’t really know any of this until my […]


Red White & Blue Ricotta Galette

Red White & Blue Ricotta Galette ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #4thofJuly #dessert #recipe

Happy Independence Day! I woke up early today, the sun shining on my bed at 5:30 am and I was absurdly, entirely awake. I had planned to sleep in today, but my body and the sun had other plans, apparently. There was no use lying in bed when I was so thoroughly alive and awake. […]


Blueberry Pineapple Tequila Sunrise

Blueberry Pineapple Tequila Sunrise ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #tequila #cocktail #recipe

I still have some blueberry pineapple tequila left after making that blueberry pineapple margarita … so then the question became … what ELSE can I make with blueberry pineapple tequila? The first thing that came to mind was a tequila sunrise. Grenadine didn’t seem like the right thing to use with blueberry pineapple tequila, so […]


Blueberry Pineapple Margarita

Blueberry Pineapple Margaritas ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #margarita #cocktail #recipe

Sometimes at work we like to go to Chili’s for lunch. One time we were there, I noticed these blueberry pineapple margaritas on the menu … oh I wanted to try one! … but since we were there for lunch, I had to refrain. So I put it on my list of things I must make. […]


MySuperSnacks, Healthy Snacks for Kids {Product Review}

MySuperSnacks Healthy Snacks for Kids Product Review

About two months ago, Anita from mysuperfoodscompany contacted me and asked if I would be interested in doing a product review for them. Although the products are made for small children I don’t  have any little ones around anymore, I said I would be glad to share them with my sister’s little ones and see […]


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 […]


Minted Honeydew Blueberry Walnut Salad

Minted Honeydew Blueberry Walnut Salad w Edible Flowers ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fruit #salad #recipe

This was a salad of coincidence. I had honeydew and blueberries in my fridge and they seemed to want to hang out together in a fruit salad. My little mint plant is finally taking off, so I have a bit of fresh mint and the day lilies are blooming like crazy. (Yes, day lilies are […]

Honey Walnut Goat Cheese Apricots with Blueberries ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #apricot #cheese #recipe

Blueberry Gooseberry Yogurt Smoothie

Blueberry Gooseberry Smoothie ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #smoothie #recipe

I have three big bags of frozen gooseberries in my freezer, from my friend who has a very lively and productive gooseberry bush. I was so pleased to have them because I ADORE gooseberries, but they are such a rich-tasting fruit, I’ve been a little puzzled about what to do with all these lovely green […]


Chicken & Blueberry Salad

Blueberry Chicken Salad with Goat Cheese, Almonds & Cherry Malbec Vinaigrette

with Goat Cheese, Sweet Onions, Toasted Almonds and a Cherry Malbec Vinaigrette I went to the kitchen the other day to find myself some lunch … started pulling things out of the fridge and this is what came of it. I made my daughter a pretty salad with just lettuce and strawberries too while I […]


Blueberry Gooseberry Ginger Yogurt Cheesecake

Lowfat Blueberry Gooseberry Ginger Yogurt Cheesecake

It’s hard to choose, but I think this is my favorite of all the recipes I made for my party last Saturday night. It’s a rich, decadent, creamy no-bake blueberry gooseberry mini-cheesecake made with nonfat greek yogurt and light cream cheese. The graham cracker crust is made with candied ginger, egg white and just a […]
