Louisiana Seafood Gumbo

Lousiana Seafood Gumbo ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #gumbo #recipe

Adapted from Emeril’s Classic Seafood Gumbo Made with ingredients readily available to land-lubbers everywhere, this classic southern seafood gumbo will transport your taste buds to Louisiana. When my sister and I went to New Orleans last year, one of my culinary goals on the trip was to have some good gumbo. I tasted three different gumbos […]


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 […]


Turkey Wild Rice Soup

Turkey Wild Rice Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chicken #wildrice #soup #recipe

Creamy yet healthy, this turkey wild rice soup transforms leftovers into a dreamy hot bowl of comfort and deliciousness. I came home from Christmas with some special treasures … you might think I mean Christmas presents, but no, those weren’t my biggest treasures … although I had my fair share of lovely presents this year and […]


Buffalo Chicken Potato Skins

Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Potato Skins ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spicy #appetizer #recipe

Two appetizers become one! … imagine the spicy goodness of buffalo chicken stuffed into a crispy potato skin shell … with melted blue cheese crumbles on top. You can make this with chicken, or, if you’re vegetarian (or a little more adventurous), try the cauliflower version. Either way, you won’t be disappointed. I seriously love […]


Buffalo Blue Cheese Cauliflower Dip

buffalo-blue-cheese-cauliflower-dip

My Wednesday night yoga group had our 5th (or possibly 6th?) annual white elephant yoga Christmas party last week … we all bring a white elephant gift and some good food to share. And wine, of course. There’s always wine. This year there was turmeric tea, too, for our friends who don’t drink. First we do […]


Spinach Cornbread Stuffing

spinach-cornbread-stuffing

People always ask me what we eat for Christmas dinner … it usually involves ham or turkey … or sometimes, if we’re lucky, a Christmas goose. This year we were blessed to have a Christmas goose, a Canadian goose that one of my brother-in-law’s friends got on a recent hunting trip. Apparently it was quite […]


Spicy Devil Creole Shrimp Dip

Spicy Devil Creole Shrimp Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spicy #shrimp #dip #recipe

It’s a shrimp dip with that creole bayou twist! I made this dip for our “dip day” at work … they supplied the chips, we were supposed to bring the dips. We had lots of wonderful dips. I truly loved them all … but I have to say, this one was still my favorite. There’s […]


Shrimp, Sausage & Cauliflower Jambalaya

Shrimp, Sausage & Cauliflower "Rice" Jambalaya ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #skinny #creole #jambalaya #recipe

adapted from Color Me Meg Once I’d tried that Cauliflower Fried Rice (and loved it!), I had this idea that there must be some other wonderful ways I could dress up that wondermous low-cal cauliflower rice, so I went a-searching and I came upon this recipe from Color Me Meg that totally intrigued me. I’ve always loved cajun and […]


Barley Lentil Harissa Veggie Stew

Barley Lentil Harissa Veggie Stew ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #vegetable #stew #recipe #glutenfree #vegetarian

Do you have a kinder, more adaptable friend in the food world than soup? Who soothes you when you are ill? Who refuses to leave you when you are impoverished and stretches its resources to give a hearty sustenance and cheer? Who warms you in the winter and cools you in the summer? Yet who […]


Irish Seafood Chowder

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? I googled Irish Seafood and a small school of Irish Seafood Chowder recipes surfaced. That made me smile. I […]


Creamy Cauli Potato Soup

Creamy Cauli Potato Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #cauliflower #potato #soup #recipe

Over the holidays, I participated in a Project Zero challenge. The challenge was not to gain any weight over the holidays. I totally stressed over it … I didn’t have a scale at home and the one at the gym at work disappeared so I had no way to see how I was doing! I […]


Mushroom Gorgonzola Ale Soup

Mushroom Gorgonzola Ale Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #beer #cheese #soup #recipe

A dreamy soup for mushroom and blue cheese lovers … every time I have a bowl of this soup, I want to lick the bowl. This soup was inspired by a gorgonzola ale soup I had when my boyfriend and I were travelling. It was really creamy and wonderful–I was totally in heaven as I […]

Creamy, cheesy, with a little bit of a spicy buffalo kick, loaded with chicken and a bit of blue cheese, this buffalo chicken dip has it all. And here’s the best part: you don’t have to feel guilty about eating it! I think it was at my mom and dad’s 50th wedding anniversary that I first […]


Asian Sriracha Chicken Nachos

Asian Sriracha Chicken Nachos ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sriracha #chicken #nachos #recipe

I had this idea rolling around in my head of some Asian style nachos. I thought it would be SO awesome … and I knew just how I wanted to do them. Flour tortilla chips, shredded teriyaki chicken, a bit of chopped celery and/or water chestnuts (for extra crunch), matchstick carrots (for both color and crunch) and a […]


Chicken Chile Corn Chowder

Chicken Chile Corn Chowder ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chicken #chowder #hearty #soup #recipe

A creamy, chunky, hearty chicken chowder with corn, carrots, celery, white beans, cream cheese and a bit of heat. It is, in a way, a cross between chowder and chili. Yeah, I am in total soup mode now that winter is really upon us. The other day I was heating up my lunch and inquiring […]

Harissa Tomato Soup with Cheese Crisps

Harissa Tomato Soup with Cheese Crisps ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #harissa #tomato #soup #recipe

This soup is vibrant, colorful, healthy and tasty, and the cheese crisps as a garnish are so fun as dippers. It’s a little like our American favorite of tomato soup with grilled cheese, but without the carbs and adding a zesty African twist. It is comfort food that reminds you to live a little, to […]


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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


Split Pea Soup w Ham, Potato & Smoked Gouda

Split Pea Soup with Ham, Potato & Smoked Gouda Cheese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #hearty #splitpea #potato #soup #recipe

I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for over three years now and I’ve posted over 1,000 recipes and I’ve never posted a single recipe for split pea soup! That’s just crazy. I’m a split pea soup lover and I have been from the time I was little. I remember eating cans of split pea soup as a child and […]


Sausage & Shrimp Southern Gumbo

Shrimp & Sausage Southern Gumbo ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #shrimp #sausage #gumbo #mardigras #soup #recipe

It’s almost time for Mardi Gras! Although I live in the north, I’ve traveled to the south and tasted some pretty dang awesome southern food–and one of the dishes that tops the yumminess charts for me is Louisiana gumbo. I’ve always wanted to make an authentic gumbo at home, and since Mardi Gras is coming up, […]


Creamy Feta Chicken Artichoke Dip

Creamy Feta Chicken Artichoke Dip & Induction Cooking with Swiss Diamond Cookware ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #hot #creamy #chicken #feta #artichoke #dip #recipe

It’s Superbowl Sunday today … I’m not watching the Superbowl because I’m not a big football fan, but I totally LOVE all the superbowl food. Instead of watching the big game, though, I’m trying out induction cooking, mostly because I want to be able to actually COOK at my monthly cooking classes at work, where we […]
