Lilac Rhubarb Crisp for Two

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. Sprinkle with more lilac flowers for a pretty presentation (if you like). I remember as a little girl, I used to lie under the lilac tree, pick blossoms from the tree, […]


Chocolate Mocha Date Bars

Chocolate Mocha Date Bars

These date bars are like your childhood favorites … all grown up. With underlying hints of chocolate, coffee … and Kahlua. And a bit of Nutella in there, too, just for fun. This recipe reminds me of my baby sister. She was the one who just loved date bars when we were growing up. Mom […]

I added a little cinnamon because I love the taste of cinnamon and chocolate together: the taste combination reminds me of Mexican […]


No-cook Strawberry Chia Jam {a Berrylicious Post}

Watermelon Basil Chia Smoothie

Basil Watermelon Chia Slushie

It’s time for the Crazy Cooking Challenge and this month we are all making smoothies. The assignment is to find another blogger’s smoothie recipe, make it, and blog about it. I chose this watermelon smoothie (slushie?) from the Full Belly Sisters because as some of you who follow me on facebook know, I recently bought a […]


Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Chia Smoothie

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie ... Health-ified

(a.k.a. “Healthy Muck”) So far, I have a total of one smoothie on this blog. One. I guess if you count this one, that’s two, but it’s really the same smoothie (this one is a health-ified version of the other one), so does that count? I think it’s still just one. I do really love […]
