Honey Apricot Mango Granola Bars ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #homemade #granola #bars #recipe

   Not long ago I got a message from Sabrina asking me if I’d like to try a recipe for Cinnamon Breakfast Squares with Yogurt and Berries  made with Honey Bunches of Oats Morning Energy Cinnamon Crunch. She offered to send me some of the cereal and I said sure, why not? So a few days later […]


Jack’s Nutty Fruit & Chocolate Snack Mix

Jack's Fruit & Chocolate Snack Mix ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #chocolate #snack #recipe

I went on a business trip this week. The agenda was packed, with no breaks planned, all day and into the evening and I was really nervous that there wouldn’t be any healthy snacks or time to eat. Without my snacks, well, let’s just say it’s really not a good thing, so I decided I […]


Muddy Buddy Truffles

Muddy Buddy Truffles ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #puppy chow #truffles #recipe

At the holidays, my kitchen seems to get filled with bowls of things … crushed candy canes, melted chocolate, powdered sugar. This year, there was an additional “something” in my kitchen that my daughter brought home from school one day: muddy buddies. People around here commonly refer to it as “puppy chow”. It’s that addictive […]


Pumpkin Gingersnap Chocolate Chip Granola

Sweet crunchy homemade granola with intermingling tastes of pumpkin, gingersnap cookies, and chocolate, inspired by Simply Gourmet’s Gingerbread Granola. I’m travelling today with my daughter who is supposed to be at a dance workshop all day, but instead she is here in the hotel feeling yucky and dizzy, so I’m pondering what to do for her […]


Almond Berry Granola

Almond Berry Granola

I don’t know what it is with me and breakfasts lately … all my posts seem to be about breakfast. Oh well, breakfast is important. What you eat in the morning sets the tone for your day, so you should make it good. Granola is the perfect breakfast on mornings when you’re in a rush. […]


Asian Dragon Party Mix

Asian Spiced Party Mix

Not too long ago, I ordered a bunch of fun seasoning mixes from Mystic Blue Spice Company. They all smell so good! Yesterday I needed to make some party mix to sell for my daughter’s dance fundraiser and thought an Asian-spiced mix would be fun to try with their Asian Dragon seasoning. It turned out […]

Simply Gourmet Photography did a lovely dark chocolate peanut butter granola. A Little Bit Crunchy A Little Bit Rock and Roll made a dark chocolate one. Oh Nuts! […]


Pineapple Peach Yogurt Parfait

with honey and lime and homemade maple cranberry granola … The great thing about having granola in the house is you can make pretty parfaits with it. All you need is some fruit and some yogurt and a pretty glass to put it in. It can be for breakfast or dessert or even a mid-day […]


Homemade Maple Cranberry Pecan Granola

Homemade Maple Cranberry Pecan- Granola

I have long been fascinated with the idea of making my own granola. I don’t know why it took me so long to actually DO it. Suddenly several of my foodie friends are talking about it, so perhaps it was the power of suggestion? I don’t know. I just know that last week I suddenly […]


Berry Bunny Love Chex Mix ♥

Berry Love Bunny Chex Mix

This would probably be the perfect chex mix to make for Valentine’s Day, but I am making it in November. Go fig. I was going to make the Chex Apple Pie Snack Mix, but the dried apples I THOUGHT I had must have gotten eaten. So I improvised with what I have. I have a lot […]


Special K Bars by my Special Girl

Special K Bars

My daughter loves Special K Bars. She has one every time we go to the coffee shop. Where we live, they are standard fare at coffee shops. One day I suggested we make them at home instead. I don’t know exactly how old she was when we first tried this project, but now she makes […]
