Corned Beef & Cabbage Stew

Corned Beef & Cabbage Stew ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cornedbeef #cabbage #potato #stew #recipe

Adapted from Family Fresh Meals I recently made a great big hunk of corned venison. Corned venison tastes very much like corned beef, really, so don’t be too concerned if you don’t have venison in your life. A good corned beef will work just fine in this recipe. (Corned venison, is, however, much leaner and healthier, […]


Spicy Turkey Nacho Soup

Spicy Turkey Nacho Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesy #Mexican #soup #recipe

A creamy, cheesy Tex Mex-style nacho soup loaded with leftover turkey (or chicken), black beans, corn, onions, tomatoes, pepper and cilantro. Serve with crunchy corn chips, cheese and a few fresh cilantro leaves on top. It’s the day after Thanksgiving and it’s time for turkey soup! I always seem to crave Mexican food after Thanksgiving. […]


Ann’s Amazing Chicken Tortilla Soup

Ann's Amazing Chicken Tortilla Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Mexican #chicken #soup #recipe

I have been in love with chicken tortilla soup forever it seems … the crunch of tortilla chips and dreamy melted cheese in a hot, spicy steamy chicken-laden broth with Mexican spices. Mmmmmm … I’ve made chicken tortilla soup before, but none that pleased me as well as this one. This one was even better than […]


German Onion Soup {Zwiebelsuppe}

German Onion Soup {Zwiebelsuppe} ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #German #onion #soup #recipe

The blonde cousin of French Onion Soup, this German Onion Soup (or Zwiebelsuppe as they would say in Germany) uses chicken or vegetable broth rather than beef broth and the subtle flavors of nutmeg and thyme to provide a touch of intrigue. Topped as most onion soups are with toasted bread and melty white cheese, this soup is […]


Dilled German Potato Dumplings {Kartoffelklösse}

Dilled German Potato Dumplings ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #German #Potato #Dumpling #Recipe

Adapted from Quick German Recipes I’m declaring this week to be Octoberfest on my blog because I have a (small) plethora of German recipes to share with you this week. I hope I can find time to blog them all because it is going to be a very busy week, but I have some delicious […]


Bacon Spinach Wild Mushroom Risotto

Bacon Spinach Wild Mushroom Risotto ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Italian #risotto #recipe

A wonderfully creamy, cheesy risotto (Italian rice) with bits of bacon, onion, bell pepper and spinach intertwined. The flavors blend so perfectly. I know, I’ve not been posting recipes much lately … you guys, I’ve been seriously distracted. Not much distracts me from food … but I have a couple things in my life lately that have […]


Smoky Bacon & Zucchini Corn Chowder

Smoky Bacon & Zucchini Corn Chowder ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #smoky #chowder #soup #recipe

A hearty corn chowder with a nice creamy broth, bits of smoky grilled zucchini and bacon, and a little hot pepper to tingle the taste buds. I made this soup last week after a trip to my parents’ house, from whence I returned over-burdened with garden goodies. I had some zucchini that I had grilled […]


Buttered Noodle Chicken Noodle Soup

Buttered Noodle Chicken Noodle Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #chicken #noodle #soup #recipe

School has started and everybody and their kids are catching colds. My daughter had a raging cold with a sore throat and my son got a bit of a cold too and they asked me to make them chicken noodle soup … not the canned stuff, but REAL chicken noodle soup, with real chicken bits in there […]


Hot Pepper Harissa Bean & Veggie Stew

Hot Pepper Harissa Bean & Veggie Stew ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spicy #vegetable #stew #recipe

I had never met Harissa until I read Ally’s cookbook. This woman seriously has an incredible repertoire of flavors from all over the world. There is an entire chapter dedicated to some very intriguing spices and Harissa was one of them. I took one look and knew I had to try it. From North Africa, […]


Mexican Fiesta Taco Soup

Mexican Fiesta Taco Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #festive #taco #soup #recipe

This is a festive soup with lots of flavor and spice, bits of vibrant color, with crunchy chips, melty cheese, avocado & cilantro on the top. Make it with taco meat to make a heartier soup, or without for a vegetarian option. The inspiration from this soup came from a Cinco de Mayo party on my facebook […]


Gypsy Ham & Lentil Stew

Gypsy Ham & Lentil Stew ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #leftover #ham #lentil #soup #recipe

There is nothing like visiting someone else’s “hell” to remind you just how good your own life is. I visited a relative this weekend … and she seemed so unhappy with every aspect of her life. She and her husband are struggling with some financial issues … and she is just exhausted with all the things she has to take […]


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. […]


Creamy Mushroom Soup

Creamy Mushroom Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #soup #recipe

A simple mushroom soup that’s wonderfully creamy and delightful and warm. I had an “aha” moment when I made my Bacon Mushroom Baked Potato Soup … at the point where I had puree’d the mushrooms & onions and such, before I added the potato and milk, that right there was a mighty tasty creamy-wonderful thing. I could […]


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 Mushroom Baked Potato Soup

Bacon Mushroom Baked Potato Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #mushroom #potato #soup #recipe

This is a much healthier version than many potato soup recipes you may chance upon–it has that comforting, baked potato flavor with the juicy, earthy tone of mushroom and a nice, creamy texture with a bit of smoky bacon and a bit of real sharp cheddar cheese … totally intended to make you smile. It worked for me! I […]


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 […]


Beefy Taco Soup

Beefy Taco Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #beef #taco #Mexican #soup #recipe

Last week I had an unusually strong craving for red meat. I wanted a burger badly, and tacos, and anything else that contained some form of red meat. This is totally atypical for me, the lady who uses meat so rarely that people sometimes ask me, “are you a vegetarian?” No, I’m not. I am really more […]


White Bean Garden Soup

White Bean Garden Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

These past couple weeks have been tough because I’ve caught a virus that just won’t go away. For the first week, my throat was so sore all I wanted was soup and toast and tea. And since I had loads of garden veggies from my mom’s beautiful garden, I decided that I should make garden […]


Smoky Asiago Zucchini Corn Soup

Smoky Asiago Zucchini Corn Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

Creamy cheesy smoky wonderful soup with bits of sweet corn and tender zucchini. My friend at work brought in some of her sweet corn to share with me … I roasted it on the grill with the intent of creating some wonderful smoky flavored something with it. I ate some of it hot off the […]


Basil Asiago Risotto

Basil Asiago Risotto ~ from Sumptuous Spoonfuls #basil #asiago #risotto #recipe

Adapted from Carrie’s Experimental Kitchen I made this Risotto to go with my Basil Asiago Baked Walleye. The flavors match, so of course they go together! …  I’m blogging it by request. I always love it when someone asks me for the recipe I really really love risotto. It’s got such a wonderful creamy texture […]


Cauliflower Potato Parmesan Soup

Cauliflower Potato Parmesan Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #potato #cauliflower #parmesan #soup #recipe

A delicate soup, comforting and creamy in texture. The cauliflower and potato thicken the soup and give it a soft taste and texture, then the sharp parmesan cheese steps in to round out the flavor. I had a lot of cauliflower left after I made a veggie tray at work last week, and I wanted […]


Slightly Spicy Spinach & Porcupine Meatball Soup

Spicy Spinach & Porcupine Meatball Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #meatball #soup #recipe

What do you do when you have a bunch of meatballs leftover? Make soup! I gotta say, I loved the soup even more than the meatballs. Some of the rice from the meatballs falls off into the soup and mixes with the spinach and the broth and I just loved that. I thought about throwing […]
