Adapted from binging with babish.  ~ Youtube.com/bgfilms A healthy apple smoothie that seriously tastes like apple pie! Happy 4th of July my dear friends. I thought I would bring you the most patriotic thing I could find in my foodie backlog for this special occasion … I mean, what’s more American than apple pie? I came across […]

Pumpkin Cake with Chocolate Cheesecake Swirl ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Choctoberfest #recipe

This is my third recipe for #Choctoberfest and I’m super excited to share it with you! Thanks to Hurricane Matthew, shipments of Imperial Sugar were delayed, but I finally received mine, along with an adorable apron and a silicon mat that I know I will use a LOT! (Incidentally, I think that’s included in the […]


(Better than Starbucks) Iced Chai Latte

(Better than Starbucks) Iced Chai Latte ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #iced #chai #latte #recipe

The classic Indian form of spiced tea, chilled … this is a creamy iced chai latte with extra flavor from whole ginger, anise, cloves and cinnamon sticks, sweetened with honey and stevia and topped with light whipped cream, a sprinkle of nutmeg and a little drizzle of caramel. I decided that in my Indian cooking […]


Apricot Date Nut Baked Oatmeal

Apricot Date Nut Baked Oatmeal ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #apricot #breakfast #recipe

I am not done yet with apricots! There is still a little box full of them in my fridge and I am dreaming up even more ways to enjoy them. If you know my fascination with baked oatmeals, you would know I really just HAD to try apricots in a baked oatmeal. Apricots intensify when baked. […]


Apple Pie w/Apple Whiskey Pie Crust #PiDay

Apple Pie with Apple Whiskey Crust ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #PiDay #apple #pie #recipe #flakycrust

Adapted from Cook’s Illustrated It’s 3.14 today … Pi Day … an annual event we love to celebrate at my house because we love math … and we love pie. But I have a confession to make: I have a HUGE pie crust phobia (resulting from a bad pie experiment I did as a child), so I […]


Cranberry Chipotle Meatballs

Cranberry Chipotle Meatballs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #glutenfree #party #meatballs #recipe

I made this recipe because a friend of mine from work came to me and said she had this grass-fed ground round that she was having NO luck with whatsoever, so she asked if she could bring some of it to me and see if I could make something edible out of it. She complained that […]


Cranberry Apple Pear Oat Crumble

Cranberry Apple Pear Oat Crumble ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fruity #baked #oatmeal #recipe

It has been so dang COLD here lately, so I decided I need to make myself something nice and warm and cozy for breakfast. Have I mentioned before that I love eating dessert for breakfast? Well, I do, especially since I found out that eating dessert for breakfast can help you lose weight — and keep […]


Microwave Maple Orange Cranberry Sauce

Microwave Maple Orange Spice Cranberry Sauce - cooks in 5 min! ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quick #easy #cranberry #sauce #recipe #Thanksgiving

Holiday spices and maple syrup in a zesty orange cranberry sauce that cooks in just 5 minutes in the microwave. It’s so easy to make, and soooo much better than those canned sauces. It’s almost time for my monthly cooking class at work and this month I’m focusing on stress-free Thanksgiving recipes. I have no cooktop […]


Maple Orange Spice Cranberry Sauce

Maple Orange Spice Cranberry Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cranberry #recipe

Inspired by Shockingly Delicious’ Hall of Fame Cranberry Sauce I don’t know why I decided to stray from my favorite cranberry sauce (or even why I am making cranberry sauce because I’m the only one in the family who likes it), but I just LOVE cranberries! I didn’t use to even like cranberry sauce until […]


Walnut Whole Wheat Pear Chai Muffins

Walnut Whole Wheat Pear Chai Muffins ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #muffin #recipe

Laced with chai, cinnamon, vanilla and chunks of sweet, juicy pear with the crunch of candied walnuts, these whole wheat muffins are a great way to start your day. Especially when you’re having a tough week. Last week was a hard one for us. My teenagers were both struggling with things and emotions and frustrations […]


Cinnamon Spice Kumquat Nut Bread

Cinnamon Spice Kumquat Nut Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #kumquat #nut #quickbread #recipe

Nutty, moist quick bread with a fresh citrus marmalade flavor, laced with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cardamom and cloves. I made this same bread last year when I got that special shipment of kumquats from my aunt who lives in Florida, but this time I switched up the spices in it and I like this version much […]


Transformations & Pumpkin Amaretto Bread Pudding

Amaretto Pumpkin Bread Pudding

Pumpkin bread pudding laced with Amaretto, maple syrup, pecans and all the wonderful spices of fall. Bread pudding is so warm, wonderful and inviting at this time of year. I love it, partly because my mother used to make it for us when we were kids … but also because it is transformational. Bread pudding transforms […]


Apple Crisp for my Girl {Low Sugar}

Apple Crisp for One {Low Sugar}

We are on a mission to cut sugar from my daughter’s diet, per instructions from her doctor. We have hopes that this will help cure her dizziness problem. I feel so bad for the poor girl … she lived through Halloween without eating even a single piece of Halloween candy (meanwhile her brother was polishing […]


Apple Cranberry White Chocolate Oat Crumble

Apple Cranberry White Chocolate Oat Crumble

This oatmeal crumble is packed full of apples, cranberries, and heart healthy oatmeal, but TASTES like a decadent fruity dessert. It’s a lovely warm fruity crumble with a crunchy topping and a fruity sauce on the bottom. It makes for a quite healthy breakfast (or dessert for that matter!) because it’s full of fruit, fiber, and […]


Apple Pie Wontons {Baked ~ Low Sugar}

If you have an apple, a few spices and some wonton wrappers, you can make these simple little apple pie wontons in about 30 minutes. I created these for my daughter … she loves apple pie, but her doctor told her to cut out sugar from her diet, so I thought I would try making […]


Funky Bejeweled Kiwi, Mango & Kumquat Salsa

Pomegranate, Kiwi, Kumquat, & Mango Salsa

I love salsa. The heat of it. The variety. The fun ways you can use it. You can put so many things in a salsa.  I had some tomatoes that were begging me to make them into salsa, but I wanted to do something a little different this time … I’ve heard of mango salsa, […]
