Made with tart cherries, this beautifully brilliant red cherry sauce is laced with brandy for an easy, elegant dessert. Simply warm the sauce and serve over ice cream with a sprig of mint and your guests will be enamored. (If you only have sweet cherries available, it can be made with sweet cherries instead.) I haven’t had […]

Highly adapted from A Beautiful Plate Tart cherries in a thick and lovely brandied maple sauce over a beautiful sweet almond mixture with candied ginger (the frangipane) make for a stellar, almost sexy, yet really quite easy, dessert.

Double Chocolate Cherry Brownies

Double Chocolate Cherry Brownies ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cherry #brownie #recipe

I made brunch for an event this month and I really wanted something chocolate … every event needs a little chocolate, don’t you think? I thought and thought upon it and brownies seemed to be the thing that was calling to me. The fresh sweet cherries in my fridge decided to join the party and […]


Strawberry Rhubarb Bread Pudding Cups

Strawberry Rhubarb Bread Pudding Cups ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert for #breakfast #muffins

A long, long time ago, I asked a friend what she wanted me to make her as a treat for her birthday. She said she wanted bread pudding, but not a fancy bread pudding, she wanted a plain bread pudding. She was very specific about this. “What?” I said … “I can’t add any fruit? […]


Easy Peasy Chocolate Fondue

Easy Peasy Chocolate Fondue ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #5minute #chocolate #fondue #recipe

This super easy chocolate fondue cooks in the microwave, so it’s ready in less than 5 minutes. It will take you longer to assemble the dippers than it will to make the fondue! You see, since I made the cheese fondue, I had to make a chocolate fondue too! Because a fondue party just isn’t complete […]

Aztec Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Aztec Chocolate Zucchini Cake with Raspberry Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chocolate #raspberry #zucchini #cake #recipe

with Raspberry Sauce … (and Gluten Free options) When I visited my parents last weekend, they had one of those large zucchini sitting on their counter. They told me I should take it to make something. “It’s perfect for cake,” I said, and gladly took it off their hands, with visions of chocolate cake dancing […]


Brandied Cinnamon Peach Cobbler

Brandied Cinnamon Peach Cobbler ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #peach #cobbler #recipe

The weekend after I got back from vacation with my kids, one of my foodie friends kept reminding me (in multiple ways) about the Peach festival going on … I wasn’t in much of a mood for a festival after our big vacay, but I was DEFINITELY in the mood for some good peaches. So […]

Adapted from Martha Stewart My gluten free friend Kelly and I have a deal. She brings me the ingredients and I bake for her. This year, she bought 20 lb. of fresh sweet cherries from the Fruit Club and promised to share them with me if I would bake her something with them. She found […]


Hot Brandy Rose

Hot Brandy Rose ~ A hot tea for bedtime from Sumptuous Spoonfuls

Sometimes a recipe is so simple to make, I wonder whether it’s blog-worthy. But then I taste it and I think … how can I NOT share this? So if this seems a bit too simple to you or if you’re not a tea-lover or if you don’t care for the taste or smell of […]


Brandied Kumquat Ginger Syrup

Brandied Kumquat Ginger Syrup (and candied kumquats too!) ~ from Sumptuous Spoonfuls

(& Brandied Candied Ginger Kumquats) This recipe results in two delightful things (you probably figured this part already  … ): Brandied Kumquat Ginger Syrup and Brandied Candied Ginger Kumquats. I made a similar recipe last year with my treasured special kumquat shipment … but without the brandy and ginger. I’m totally liking this little twist even […]


Brandied Pumpkin Maple Spice Ice Cream

Brandied Pumpkin Maple Spice Ice Cream

I know it might seem a little odd to be making ice cream in the fall when the weather is starting to get chilly, but think about it. This is the time of year when people are baking pies and apple crisp and don’t you always want a scoop of ice cream on top? Why […]
