Bailey's Cheesecake Swirl Brownies ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Choctoberfest #brownie #recipe with Imperial Sugar

I’m so glad that #Choctoberfest is here! I’ve not made anything chocolate for quite a while and I’m not even sure why … chocolate is one of my favorite things in the whole world and it SO deserves a regular appearance in my kitchen. If you haven’t entered the #Choctoberfest giveaway, what are you waiting […]

Mini Chocolate Cheesecake Cookie Cups ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #decadent #mini #chocolate #dessert #recipe

These little cookie cups are really quite easy to put together, and they are fancy and decadent and satisfying too. The cheesecake mixture requires no baking and it’s very chocolatey and creamy good. I made the cookie cups Saturday, painted them with chocolate on Sunday morning, then made the filling and stuffed them Sunday afternoon. It […]

with fresh strawberries Several of my yoga buddies are artists and one of them owns a furniture store, so last night we had a big “wine & design” gala event where we invited 250 of our closest friends to come to this wine/art sale. My friends insisted that I bring the food. I tried to […]


Rustic Cranberry Cheesecake Pie

Rustic Cranberry Cheesecake Pie ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert #recipe

We ran out of desserts on Thanksgiving. Well, okay, not ON Thanksgiving, but by Friday morning, there was only one piece of pumpkin pie left and the apple pie supply was sadly dwindling. So I decided someone needed to make dessert. Namely me. My plans were to make something cranberry. My sister thought I should […]


Strawberry Cheesecake Tart

Strawberry Cheesecake Tart with Pecan Crust ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesecake #recipe

with Pecan Shortbread Crust I feel like I’ve always wanted to make a dessert like this with a big bunch of strawberries all arranged in a pretty flower shape on top … I’ve seen photos of them and thought they were SOOooo pretty, but never tried to make one. Last weekend I walked into the […]


Oreo Shamrock Cheesecake Squares

Oreo Shamrock Cheesecake Squares ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesecake #bars #recipe

Continuing on with my “green” theme this week, I thought I’d try making some minty shamrock cheesecake bars, with a chocolatey Oreo crust. My idea was to have the cheesecake layer taste sort of like a Shamrock Shake. It was a great idea and they taste marvelous, except I screwed up on one little thing. […]


Copycat Cheesecake Factory Oreo Cheesecake

CopyCat Cheesecake Factory Oreo Cheesecake ~ from Sumptuous Spoonfuls #oreo #cheesecake #recipe

Just very slightly adapted from CopyKat Recipes I have a funny story to tell you … my friend has a lake house that she rented out last summer to a group of students from Turkey. She lovingly refers to them as “the Turks” and she just adored them. I wish my schedule had allowed me […]


Crumb-topped Pumpkin Cheesecake Squares

Crumb Topped Pumpkin Cheesecake Squares ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pumpkin #cheesecake #recipe

Cookies or cheesecake? How about both! A thick shortbread cookie crust covered with a light pumpkin cheesecake layer, then topped off with a nutty crumb topping. I shared these yummy little cheesecake squares with the folks at my new office and they all enjoyed them. I’ve promised to get the recipe up soon … if […]


Blueberry Gooseberry Ginger Yogurt Cheesecake

Lowfat Blueberry Gooseberry Ginger Yogurt Cheesecake

It’s hard to choose, but I think this is my favorite of all the recipes I made for my party last Saturday night. It’s a rich, decadent, creamy no-bake blueberry gooseberry mini-cheesecake made with nonfat greek yogurt and light cream cheese. The graham cracker crust is made with candied ginger, egg white and just a […]


Sweet Avocado Cheesecake with Pomegranates & Walnut Crust

Sweet Avocado Cheesecake with Walnut Crust and Pomegranate Seeds

My sister had just had a baby … she was in the hospital recovering and I get a text message from her at 5:38 am the next morning: “For ur blog: avocado cheesecake. Saw in magazine. Looked wonderful.” I know they keep you awake at ungodly hours in the hospital, but at 5:38 am she […]
