Cheesy Cottage Pie

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. […]


White Cheddar Broccoli Potato Soup

White Cheddar Broccoli Potato Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #creamy #cheesy #potato #soup #recipe

Velvet-smooth white cheddar potato soup studded with bright green bits of broccoli. Topping it with bacon adds a nice smoky taste and a bit of crunch, but I offer several topping ideas to suit your own tastes/dietary restrictions. I made this soup by request from my son, who saw some post somewhere on social media and […]


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 […]


Three-Cheese Broccoli Potato Soup

Three Cheese Broccoli Potato Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #broccoli #potato #soup #recipe

If you can’t decide whether you want Broccoli Cheddar Soup or Cheesy Potato Soup, why not have both in one bowl? This is a soup that tastes oh so super creamy and rich and cheesy with all the comfort of potato soup AND the rich cheesiness of Broccoli cheddar soup, but with a surprising healthy twist and a […]


Broccoli Mushroom Chicken Fried Rice

Broccoli Mushroom Chicken Fried Rice ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Chinese #Recipe

Adapted from Steamy Kitchen Traditional chicken fried rice becomes a delightful meal with perfectly moist and tender chicken, crisp tender broccoli and carrots, perfectly cooked bits of egg and sauteed mushrooms. The chicken in this dish is marinated, then cooked to perfection so it is tender and moist, but not rubbery (like you know chicken can […]


Ham & Broccoli Breakfast Scramble Supreme

Ham, broccoli, a bit of onion, tomato and eggs all scrambled up in a quick gluten free, high protein breakfast skillet that is healthy, yet surprisingly satisfying. The bursts of juiciness from the tomatoes along with the heartiness of the eggs and ham and the fresh crisp-tender of the broccoli make this a healthy breakfast that is […]


Smoky Broccoli Beer Cheese Soup

Smoky Broccoli Beer Cheese Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #broccoli #beer #cheese #soup #recipe

. A beautiful creamy beer cheese soup with lovely chunks of broccoli and a nice hint of smoke from smoked paprika and chipotle. Two of my favorite soups are beer cheese soup and broccoli cheese soup (and yes, cheese being the common theme there), but somehow I never thought to combine them until I was sitting […]


Cherry Almond Broccoli Salad

Cherry Almond Broccoli Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #summer #potluck #salad #recipe

A fast and easy potluck salad that is a total crowd pleaser! Crunchy almonds and fresh sweet cherries mix with broccoli, peas and sweet onion in a light yogurt/mayo dressing. We had a little rib fest at work last week. My company bought the ribs, 5 people volunteered to cook them (including me) and others were encouraged […]


Broccoli Mushroom Wild Rice Cups

Broccoli Mushroom Wild Rice Cups ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #wildrice #mushroom #bites #recipe

These little bites are made with real Minnesota wild rice. I was the lucky recipient of the leftover wild rice from our Easter dinner and I had to make something wonderful with it! They’re delicious, they’re healthy, and easy too … and if you make these little cups in mini-muffin tins, only 65 calories apiece. A marvelous little snack or side […]

Mushroom Broccoli Blue Cheese Bites

Mushroom Broccoli Blue Cheese Bites ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #mushroom #veggie #egg #bites #breakfast #snack #recipe

These delicious little bites are phenomenal tasting savory little egg muffin-ettes. They don’t HAVE to happen because you’re trying to eat right. But just in case you are trying to “eat healthier”, they do happen to be super nutritious and low in calories too. Personally, I made them because I’m trying to eat healthier and exercise […]


Cheddar Chicken Broccoli Rice Casserole

Cheddar Chicken Broccoli Rice Casserole ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chicken #cheese #broccoli #rice #casserole #recipe

and a tribute to an incredible woman … There was this amazing woman at work … her name was Wanda. You could go to Wanda with any question about just about anything in our software and she knew just what to do. She was super knowledgeable, yet always so easy to talk to and so […]


Broccoli Carrot Rice Balls

Asian Broccoli Carrot Rice Balls ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #vegetarian #rice #recipe

I made these fun little rice balls for our Wine & Design event, to serve alongside my Asian Ginger Meatballs. It was one of those things I pondered and pondered and just couldn’t decide what to serve with the meatballs, and then, one morning shortly before the event, I woke up with the answer. Rice […]

Creamy Dubliner Ham & Veggie Bisque

Creamy Dubliner Ham & Veggie Bisque ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesy #ham #soup #recipe

This soup has it all! All that creamy, cheesy goodness from a Broccoli Cheese Soup, with that oh-so-intoxicating ham broth, bits of ham and lots of other veggies to really let the flavors shine (and support your health too!) Yes, I know it’s spring and today it’s beautiful and sunny, but just a few days […]


Ham & Cheddar Broccoli Tots

Ham & Cheddar Broccoli Tots ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #cheesy #veggie #tots #recipe

Slightly adapted from The Two Bite Club I was smitten with this recipe from The Two Bite Club the first moment I set my eyes upon it. First of all, I adore broccoli. It is one of my very favorite vegetables. And then you add some tangy aged cheddar cheese and egg and make it all cute and bite-size […]


Better than Panera Broccoli Cheese Soup {Copycat}

Better than Panera Broccoli Cheese Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #copycat #supercreamy #broccoli #cheddar #soup #recipe

Adapted from Averie Cooks I went to Panera the other day while my daughter was at an appointment. I really went there just to have a cup of coffee and hang out until she was done, but I found myself wanting some good soup. So I decided to try a cup of their broccoli cheese soup. […]


Buffalo Chicken & Broccoli Grilled Cheese

Buffalo Chicken & Broccoli Grilled Cheese Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quick #spicy #GrilledCheese #sandwich #recipe

Does it ever happen to you that you get so busy doing ridiculous things like hosting a virtual party on facebook or editing photos or perusing Pinterest or running your kids to their various appointments that you forget to do something really basic like feeding yourself? Yeah, that happens to me more than I’d like […]


Bacon Broccoli Macaroni & Cheese {Lactose Free}

Lactose Free Bacon Broccoli Cheddar Macaroni & Cheese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #lactosefree #healthy #mac&cheese #comfortfood #recipe

Last month I did a “comfort foods” cooking class at work and I knew I had to include Macaroni & Cheese, the ultimate comfort food. So I planned to make a health-ified mac & cheese using a cauliflower/carrot cheese sauce. I was all prepped for the class, but the day before the class,which was a Sunday, […]


Bacon Broccoli Cheddar Potato Skins

Bacon Broccoli Cheddar Potato Skins ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #gameday #baked #healthier #potato #skins #recipe

I have to confess, potato skins are absolutely one of my very favorite appetizers. I love to order them at the bar, but somehow, never thought to make them at home, which is totally silly because how many times have I made baked potato soup and tossed those precious potato skins in the compost bin? […]


Broccoli Cheddar Rice Cups

Broccoli Cheddar Rice Cups ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #snack #appetizer #recipe

Adapted very slightly from The Fountain Avenue Kitchen I almost want to apologize for that sugar binge I sent us on … it was a very sugar-y December for me. Luckily I had lots of help to eat it all! It’s time to slow down on sugar, though, and think about staying healthy for the […]


Cheesy Baked Broccoli Mushroom Fritters

Cheesy Baked Broccoli Mushroom Fritters ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #broccoli #mushroom #recipe

Adapted from Recipes, Food and Cooking My mom brought me a bunch of freshly picked Chanterelle mushrooms and some fresh garden produce from her garden. She and dad had gone mushroom hunting and picked a LOT of chanterelle mushrooms. On top of that, their garden (which is the size of a small field) is beginning […]


Ham & Broccoli Quiche Romesco

Ham & Broccoli Quiche Romesco ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quiche #recipe

The advantage of having Romesco sauce in the house is there are SO many things you can use it for! It adds a wonderful flavor to almost everything it touches. After Pi day this year, I ended up with one extra pie crust. It didn’t take me long to decide that crust needed to be […]


40 Healthier Holiday Appetizers

40 Healthier Holiday Appetizers (and why they're better for you)

… and why they’re good for you! It’s almost Christmas and everywhere I look lately, there is sugar! It’s taken over the Internet, my workplace, my kitchen, my gifts (yes, I confess, I’m giving away lots of sugar this year). For a while I fell victim to the sugar-devil, reveling in baking and melting chocolate, […]
