Better than Rotisserie Crockpot Chicken

Better than Rotisserie Crockpot Chicken ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #crockpot #rotisserie #chicken #recipe

Adapted slightly from Cooking on the Ranch who got the recipe from The Unorthodox Epicure (I am sad that I cannot locate his version of the recipe!) The other day, when Cooking on the Ranch posted this recipe, I immediately wanted to try it. My daughter is a chicken fanatic and rotisserie chicken is something she often requests when […]


Copycat Qdoba Taco Meat

Copycat Qdoba Taco Meat ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quick #easy #Qdoba #seasoned #groundbeef #recipe

Adapted from Qdoba At Home I don’t know exactly how long it has been, but we had a little celebration at work and they served up a “taco bar” from Qdoba. We all loved the food, but there was lots of the ground meat (and other stuff) leftover after the festivities were gone. How things […]


Pedernales River Chili

Pedernales River Chili ~ Lyndon B Johnson's favorite chili recipe ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #presidential #meaty #chili #recipe

This meaty chili was Lyndon B Johnson’s favorite. My dad made it, and told me how good it was, and had me taste it. Now, I’m not normally a “meaty” chili kinda person–I tend to stray over towards the ones with beans and loads of veggies, not that I have anything AGAINST meat per se, […]


Graveyard Taco Dip

Graveyard Taco Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Halloween #layer #dip #recipe

Adapted from Chickabug Blog and my dear friend Kathy’s taco dip recipe When I first saw this amazing idea turning a dip into a graveyard, my mind immediately went to my yoga friend Kathy’s wonderful taco dip. We beg her to bring it to our yoga parties because it is SO good! She says when she […]


Fire Roasted 7-Bean Crockpot Chili

Fire-Roasted 7-Bean Crockpot Chili

A smoky tasting meat chili with fire roasted tomatoes, bell peppers, serranos and the rich depth of seven different beans. You see, after mom brought me all those ripe tomatoes from her garden and I fire roasted multiple batches of them, I made some of them into salsa, and some of them into enchilada sauce, […]


Southwestern Eggrolls {Baked!}

Baked Southwestern Egg Rolls

Every time I go to Chili’s, I order the Southwestern Egg Rolls. I always look through the menu, but I can’t help but ordering those delicious eggrolls … I just LOVE those things! I don’t like that they are fried, though. I try to stay away from fried food as much as I can. So […]


Red Robin Seasoning Copycat Recipe #2

Red Robin Seasoning {Copycat Recipe #2}

I fell in love with Red Robin seasoning when we lived in near proximity to a Red Robin restaurant. They have amazing burgers and chicken sandwiches, their fries are big and wonderfully crunchy on the outside, yet soft and potato-ey on the inside. They have a huge menu of alcoholic concoctions too, but the thing […]


Chile Brown Sugar Salmon on the Grill

Chile Brown Sugar Salmon on the Grill

I made this as a low sodium entree for my daughter … before we found out she can and SHOULD have salt. Whew.  That’s a relief. But when I asked my foodie friends if they still wanted low-sodium recipes, the resounding answer was YES. This is a tasty dish that you can make entirely without […]


Low Sodium Red Magic Seasoning

Red Magic Seasoning

I am on a quest for low sodium, but delicious food lately. Food that will appeal to a teenager. I never never never thought I would have to worry much about sodium … my blood pressure is low. My kids, well they’re kids! You don’t have to worry about salt too much with kids, right? […]


Citruslove: Artisanal Portuguese Kumquat Cornbread

Artisanal Portuguese Kumquat Cornbread

I was searching the internet looking for interesting recipes to make with my kumquats … when I found this recipe for Portuguese Kumquat Cornbread. When I read the ingredients and his description of it, I was totally entranced. This is what Chef Ron Oliver says about the bread: “This is a yeast-leavened cornbread – more of […]


Red Robin Seasoning (Copycat recipe)

Red Robin Seasoning (Copycat recipe)

and a wealth of other seasoning mixes from my friend Carla In general, I am not fond of chain restaurant food–I prefer to sample the local fare wherever I am–but there are a couple places I do like, and Red Robin is one of my favorites.  It’s basically a burger joint, but their burgers are […]
