All the Asian deliciousness of a Vietnamese Pork Banh Mi sandwich with the sweetly sauced pork, pickled veggies, crunchy peanuts and fresh cilantro, but in a crunchy, healthy lettuce wrap instead of a bun.

All the delicious flavors of sushi in an easy bowl! My friend Jon (who is Asian) calls this “bachelor sushi” … he tells me the way he makes sushi at home is just to throw it all in a bowl. Sometimes if he’s making sushi for a crowd, he just fills a cake pan with sushi ingredients. […]

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, […]

Turkey & Cream Cheese Sushi

Turkey & Cream Cheese Sushi ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sushi for #sushihaters #recipe

This is sushi for the sushi haters in the world … because contrary to popular belief, sushi does NOT mean raw fish.

Irish Seafood Chowder ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Irish #Seafood #Soup #Stew #Recipe

On my quest to find more Irish dishes besides the corned beef and cabbage gig, I pondered what else would the Irish make? Well, there is a LOT of ocean around Ireland, so they must have seafood, yes?
