Strawberry Rhubarb Upside Down Cake ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #summer #fruity #caramel #cake #recipe

Adapted from Eating Well A gorgeous fruity cake, with a pretty design on top and an ooey gooey caramel sauce that forms by itself on the bottom of the pan. When you flip it over, all that gorgeous caramel drips down over the fruit and the cake and it tastes just like heaven. I love the way […]


Jack Daniels Chipotle Barbecue Sauce

Jack Daniels Chipotle Barbecue Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #homemade #bbq #sauce #recipe

Years and years and years ago, in another lifetime, it seems, I used to travel to Tennessee for work. The guys that I traveled with loved to visit the distilleries in Tennessee … and even though I don’t drink whiskey (after a rather nasty episode with whiskey in my younger years), I discovered that I […]


Hawaiian Huli Huli Chicken

Hawaiian Huli Huli Chicken ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #tender #juicy #Hawaiian #grilled #chicken #recipe

Adapted slightly from Hawaii Magazine I’m getting ready for the luau later this month and oh man, is it fun “testing” out these Hawaiian recipes! Being landlocked in the midwest means I can’t serve some of the more exotic Hawaiian dishes, even if I could somehow get my hands on the ingredients. I figure that’s probably […]

Melt In Your Mouth Baked BBQ Ribs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #pork #ribs #recipe

Adapted from Food.com Do you ever go to the grocery store and you are going about the store gathering the things that you need … and then someone passes you and something in their cart catches your eye and you think … hmm, that’s a good idea! Maybe I should try that. That is totally […]

Eggnog Toffee Squares

Eggnog Toffee Squares ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #shortbread #toffee #eggnog #dessert #recipe

Adapted just very slightly from Baking in a Tornado These delightful little squares are like toffee with a soft shortbread cookie crust, and it doesn’t stick to your teeth like toffee sometimes does. They would go well with a cup of hot chai or coffee or even a glass of holiday eggnog. Every Saturday I have a virtual party […]


Caramel Apple Jam

Caramel-Apple-Jam

Adapted just slightly from Cooking with Mary and Friends Last weekend I went to visit my parents. Mom and Dad have this HUGE apple tree that makes tons of apples (probably literally) every year. This year especially it is LOADED with apples … apparently way too many for the tree to bear because while we […]


Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble Mini-Pies

Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble Mini-Pies ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #bite-size #dessert #recipe

Before we get started talkin’ pie, don’t forget to enter the $100 cookware giveaway! It ends July 1. The other day I was going through my fridge, finding things that need to be tossed and things that need to be used ASAP and I ran across some wonton wrappers. They were in the “better use […]


Nutty Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

Nutty Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #rhubarb #dessert #recipe

I went to visit my parents last weekend. It was very different from most of my visits because usually the house is full of people. My sisters and there husbands and all the kids are usually there. This time it was just me. My teenagers decided to stay home. My sisters were all home. It […]


Brown Sugar Buffalo Chex Mix

Brown Sugar Buffalo Chex Mix ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls Party Mix #Recipe

I’ve discovered that brown sugar mixed with spicy hot sauce makes for a magical combination … you don’t need a lot of brown sugar or a lot of hot sauce … just the two together go SO perfectly. I made this Chex mix simply because I had a lot of chex in my cupboard that […]


Whipped Vanilla Sweet Potatoes

Whipped Vanilla Sweet Potatoes & a collection of healthy sweet potato recipes ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sweet potato #recipe

and five other healthy sweet potato recipes! This is a recipe I’ve been making since my son was little. At the holidays, he would ask me to make them and he just loves them. He really really really loves vanilla and often tells me to add more vanilla, but I try not to overdo it. […]


Lemon Cardamon Pear Crisp

Lemon Cardamom Pear Crisp ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert #recipe

I hope you’re not tired of pear recipes yet, because I still have a couple beauties I want to share with you.  I tried browning the butter for this crisp and I liked the taste of it, but it does change the texture of the topping. If you want your crisp to be more like […]


Caramelized Apple Pear Dutch Baby

Caramelized Apple Pear Dutch Baby ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #breakfast #recipe

Adapted slightly from Spinach Tiger and Moore or Less Cooking Blog I’ve been fascinated with this poofy oven pancake that is a Pennsylvania Dutch tradition for what seems like forever, but I never found the time to make one. Part of it is my kids. We have perfected the pancake and waffle recipes so much […]


Cinnamon Coconut Caramel Sauce

Cinnamon Coconut Caramel Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #caramel #recipe

Adapted from the Urban Poser (guest posting on PaleOMG) I was so intrigued when I saw this caramel sauce made with coconut milk and honey on these amazing Samoa baked donuts (which I do fully intend to make one of these days SOON!) … Usually caramel is made with loads of butter and brown sugar […]

Lilac Rhubarb Crisp for Two ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #rhubarb #recipe

Sweet crunchy oat & brown sugar topping over tart cooked rhubarb with a light lemony floral hint from lilac blossoms baked into the crisp.

Snowdrift Vanilla Porter Beer Nuts

Snowdrift Vanilla Porter Beer Nuts ~ from Sumptuous Spoonfuls #beer #nuts #recipe

Adapted from Beer Magazine Caramelized vanilla porter, maple syrup, brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice combine to make these sweet salty peanuts more than a little addictive. Make sure to snack on these the next time you are drinking a deep, dark porter. If you’re going to be sitting around drinking beer for the Superbowl, you […]


Peanut Butter Ice Cream {Low Fat}

Lowfat Peanut Butter Brown Sugar Ice Cream with PB2

I am a peanut butter fanatic. For as long as I can remember, I have cherished the taste of peanut butter. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were my favorite snack growing up … until as a teenager, I noticed I was putting on some weight. I asked my mom (the dietician) for some help and […]


Baked Strawberry Rhubarb French Toast for Mom

Strawberry Rhubarb Baked French Toast with Mascarpone Cheese

My mom loves strawberries. I know this because I remember, as a child, she always wanted one of her kids to go to Dairy Queen with her on Mother’s Day to get her free sundae. And she ALWAYS got a strawberry sundae. So I always ALWAYS think of strawberries on Mother’s Day. My mom doesn’t […]


Chile Brown Sugar Salmon on the Grill

Chile Brown Sugar Salmon on the Grill

I made this as a low sodium entree for my daughter … before we found out she can and SHOULD have salt. Whew.  That’s a relief. But when I asked my foodie friends if they still wanted low-sodium recipes, the resounding answer was YES. This is a tasty dish that you can make entirely without […]


Cranberry White Chocolate Oatmeal Bars

Cranberry White Chocolate Oatmeal Bars with Toasted Pecans

with Toasted Pecans Now if you ask me, THIS is the way to eat your oatmeal. When I saw these gorgeous bars that Kay from And Then I Ate It shared, I stashed away the recipe because I knew right then and there that I wanted to make them. I just needed to find a […]


Cookie Bloghop: Chocolate Graham Toffee Crunch

Chocolate Graham Toffee Crunch

I’m making food gifts for the holidays. This one isn’t healthy but it tastes really really really good. Like addictively, dangerously good. If you make this, this is what I recommend: take a test piece or two or three, then put it in an airtight tin right away as soon as it’s done. Hide it […]


Cranberry Nut Crunch Popcorn

Cranberry Nut Crunch Popcorn

I love making food gifts for the holidays and since popcorn, nuts and berries are three of my favorite foods, it just seems natural to combine them into something gift-able. I think I might keep this one for myself, though. It’s so yummy. Cranberry Nut Crunch Popcorn 10 – 12 cups of popped plain popcorn […]
