Spanish Asparagus Revuelto (Scrambled Eggs)

Spanish-Asparagus-Revuelto-Scrambled-Eggs

I was searching around the interwebs for new ideas for asparagus and I stumbled across this gorgeous recipe from  The New York Times and I was intrigued. Revuelto, what a beautiful word … I’ve never heard that before. What does it mean? Google quickly helped me solve that conundrum. Revuelto means scrambled eggs. Ah! Of course! […]


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 […]


Mixed Vegetable Piroshki

Mixed Vegetable Piroshki ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Russian #vegetarian #pocketsandwich

It’s the morning after my daughter’s 18th birthday party. She wanted a Dungeons and Dragons party. It was a wild time last night, quite a change from our normal quiet household. Eight rowdy teenagers who ate voraciously, talked, joked, laughed loudly and frequently broke into song. My daughter and I were way over-prepared in the food […]


Italian Garlic Bread Crisps

Italian Garlic Bread Crisps ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #crunchy #snack #recipe

There’s an annual event that several of my yoga friends and I do together once or twice a year. We call it “Wine & Design” and it involves, yes, wine, but also lots of local artists … and they convinced me years ago that I needed to do the food. The first year my food […]


Tomato Basil Upside Down Focaccia

Tomato Basil Upside Down Focaccia ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesy #onion #tomato #focaccia #recipe

Inspired by Ally’s Kitchen Think bruschetta baked right into focaccia … with cheese and sauteed onion. It’s a little like a pizza, but in an upside-down cake sort of way. It’s a delightful savory, yeasted upside down cake with focaccia stepping in to replace the cake batter. It could be a show-stealing appetizer, a snack, […]


Piña Colada Bread Pudding Cupcakes

Piña Colada Bread Pudding Cupcakes ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pineapple #coconut #breadpudding #recipe

This is where bread pudding and Piña Coladas collide … in a beautiful, little cupcake form. This recipe was born when I had too many Hawaiian buns left after the summer bash at Little Cellar Wine Company / Coffea last month. The buns turned slightly hard after a bit, so my kids wouldn’t eat them, but they still […]


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? […]


Bread Machine Hawaiian Rolls

Bread Machine Hawaiian Rolls ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sweet #soft #rolls like #kings #Hawaiian #recipe

Adapted slightly from Handle the Heat Lightly sweet yeasted buttery rolls with a very soft, fluffy texture and tropical taste, these rolls are the fresh, homemade version of the famous King’s Hawaiian rolls. We have these monthly fitness challenges at work and I’m really psyched for this newest challenge. It’s a Hawaiian theme and the challenge is to walk/run/bike/swim 120 miles […]


Grilled Cheddar Swiss Breakfast Sandwich

Grilled Cheddar Swiss Breakfast Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls - a bit of mustard makes this tastebud nirvana

Did you know that April is National Grilled Cheese Month? It is!!! I know I’m weird, but that really makes me happy. I adore grilled cheese sandwiches–both making them and eating them. Toasting the bread to perfection while getting the cheese good and melty is the challenge, and when achieved, the simple grilled cheese sandwich […]


Mushroom Kale Stuffing

Mushroom Kale Stuffing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dressing #stuffing #recipe #holidays

It’s Christmas and I’m finally posting this recipe we made on Thanksgiving. My sister brought this gorgeous bunch of kale for Thanksgiving and we decided we needed to put it in the stuffing. We all loved the earthy taste and texture that the kale added to the stuffing. This recipe makes a LOT of stuffing, […]


Bacon Cheddar Jalapeno Corn Muffins

Bacon Cheddar Jalapeno Corn Muffins ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #cornbread #muffin #recipe w #glutenfree option

Delightfully moist and wonderful corn muffins with real corn, bacon, sharp cheddar cheese and jalapeno peppers to give them a little bite. Sure to become a favorite. They aren’t very spicy, but feel free to tone down the amount of jalapeno (or omit it) if you’re sensitive to heat. I made these delightful little corn […]


Bagel Dogs

Bagel Dogs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #homemade #breadmachine #bageldogs

Here’s a little trip back in time in recipe-land. A long, long time ago, when my son was little and the only little one we had in our newly started family, he was very active and busy and wild. He would drive his father crazy on Saturday mornings with all his energy when all his […]


{Copycat} Schlotzky’s Original Sandwich

Copycat Schlotzky's Original Sandwich Recipe ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

Adapted from Food.com and Texas Cookin’ A looong, long time ago, I made a Shlotzky’s Original Sandwich recipe (making the bread dough in my bread machine) and the result was soooo good, you almost couldn’t tell it was made at home. That was way before I was a food blogger, back before I had kids, […]


Cheesy Garlic Pull-Apart Bread

Cheesy Garlic Pull-Apart Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #garlic #cheese #bread #recipe

Adapted slightly from Baked by Rachel  To go with our perfect Easter ham this year, I made this yummy garlicky pull-apart bread. I found this gorgeous recipe over at Baked by Rachel and just HAD to add cheese, because, well, what’s better than a good cheesy garlic bread? It turned out just as delicious as I had hoped. We […]


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 […]


Spinach Havarti Grilled Cheese Egg in a Hole

Spinach Havarti Grilled Cheese Egg in a Hole ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #grilledcheese #egg #breakfast #recipe

I get food inspirations at the oddest moments. I was driving around town the other day when the idea of a grilled cheese egg in a hole popped into my mind. I thought “really I must try that this weekend” and filed it away in the back of my mind. It’s Saturday morning and as soon […]


Dark & Smoky Caramelized Onion Gouda Soup

Dark & Smoky Caramelized Onion Gouda Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #french #onion #soup #recipe

My dad grew some beautiful onions in his garden this year … great big yellow onions, the good kind for storage that will keep all winter and into the spring until there are new onions from the garden. He has big wire buckets full of these gorgeous onions and encourages me to take some every time […]


Tomato Basil & Gouda Breakfast Sandwich

Tomato Basil & Smoked Gouda Breakfast Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #breakfast #sandwich #recipe

I have just a few fresh garden tomatoes left (the last from the plants I brought inside when it started freezing at night) and I want to put these last little garden treasures to good use. The other day I made myself a cheesy bruschetta, which is always good, and this morning I was craving something […]


No Knead Peasant Bread

No Knead Peasant Bread baked in a bowl ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #yeast #bread #recipe

Adapted just slightly from Alexandra Cooks, with a big thank you to Cooking with Mary & Friends A lovely white bread with a soft, tender inside and a crunchy outside. It requires no bread machine, no kneading, and roughly 3 hours of time to make, from start to finish and most of that time is waiting for the dough […]


Cheesy Garlic Summer Bruschetta

Cheesy Garlic Summer Bruschetta ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #tomato #bruschetta #garlic #basil #recipe

Adapted from The Foodie Physician Bruschetta is the essence of summer, when all the hard work in the garden comes to a brilliant colorful climax in an appetizer that is so simple you don’t even really need a recipe to make it. It’s time to let the tomatoes shine in magnificent glory and bask in a […]


Gluten Free Triple Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Gluten Free Triple Chocolate Zucchini Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #glutenfree #chocolate #zucchini #bread #recipe

Adapted from The Fountain Avenue Kitchen Whenever one of my favorite foodie friends posts a gluten free recipe, my ears perk up. Not because I am gluten free, but because I have some good friends who eat gluten free. Kelly brings me gluten free ingredients to assist in my cooking experiments. And Mitch is my […]


Maple Strawberry Rhubarb Grilled Cheese

Maple Strawberry Rhubarb Grilled Cheese Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sweet #fruit #sandwich #recipe

Adapted from Roti n Rice I’ve been wanting to make a strawberry grilled cheese sandwich for ages it seems, since I saw a brie and strawberry sandwich and I thought it sounded SO good. I actually used to have some Brie, but I took it up to my mom and dad’s, intending to try something […]


Italian Tomato Asiago Focaccia

Italian Tomato Asiago Focaccia ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #yeast #bread #recipe

All homemade breads are wonderful in my book, but Focaccia is one of those breads that is just heaven to bite into. This focaccia has extra Italian flavor from Italian seasoning and Asiago cheese baked right into the bread. Topped with sweet cherry tomatoes, Italian seasoning, a bit of garlic and coarse sea salt, the […]


Ham, Cheese & Chive Crescent Pinwheels

Ham, Cheese & Chive Cresent Pinwheels ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #portable #sandwich #recipe

Perfect picnic food … they are like little portable sandwiches you can take with you anywhere. Great for dipping in soup, or you could serve them as an appetizer. The best part, in my mind, is that no cans of crescent roll dough were used in the making of these little portable sandwiches. I was looking […]
