Sunflower Kale Bulgur Pilaf ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #yummy #SideDish #recipe

Bulgur and kale join together with corn, bacon, dill and sunflower seeds to make a scrumptious side dish that can be served hot or cold. It’s hearty enough to be a meal on its own, or you can serve it along side pork or chicken. I made this last summer with some of the gorgeous […]

Adapted from Jo Cooks and Caroline’s Cooking An easy, “no cook” version of the popular Mexican Street Corn salad.

Crispy roasted cauliflower topped with melted cheese and classic Mexican nacho toppings makes for a delightful, healthy appetizer (or meal)!

These festive, snack-size bites are a great way to repurpose leftover Spanish rice and taco meat and they are so easy to make! My daughter absolutely loves Spanish rice.

Chipotle Cowboy Caviar

Chipotle Cowboy Caviar ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cowboy #caviar #recipe

Recently we had our annual United Way fundraising drive at work. Our CEO came around and talked to us personally, at each team in the company, to challenge us to increase our donation this year by $2 per week. Being the analytical type of person that I am, I did the math. $2 per week […]

Cheesy Sausage & Corn Stuffed Peppers ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #StuffedPeppers #Recipe

It is harvest crunch time in middle America … when all of us with gardens and plants outside that we want to keep are fervently watching the weather to make sure our precious harvest doesn’t carelessly go to waste. I recently ran up to visit my parents. It was a quick trip, but they mentioned […]

Kalua Pork Fried Rice ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pork #friedrice #recipe

I am trying to catch up with all the recipes in my backlog … this one is from last June when I made the food for our Summer Bash party at Little Cellar Wine Company/Coffea. It was a great party with wonderful music, food and beer, but as usual, I made WAY too much food. […]

Basil Spinach & Corn Quinoa

Basil Spinach & Corn Quinoa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #vegetarian #glutenfree #quinoa #recipe

I just adore the nutty chewiness that is quinoa. It’s like nothing else … and it’s so wonderfully healthy and good for you too! I had some cooked quinoa in my fridge that needed sprucing up and some fresh spinach that needed to be used quickly, so I grabbed a few of my favorite ingredients […]


Barley Lentil Harissa Veggie Stew

Barley Lentil Harissa Veggie Stew ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #vegetable #stew #recipe #glutenfree #vegetarian

Do you have a kinder, more adaptable friend in the food world than soup? Who soothes you when you are ill? Who refuses to leave you when you are impoverished and stretches its resources to give a hearty sustenance and cheer? Who warms you in the winter and cools you in the summer? Yet who […]


Chicken Chile Corn Chowder

Chicken Chile Corn Chowder ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chicken #chowder #hearty #soup #recipe

A creamy, chunky, hearty chicken chowder with corn, carrots, celery, white beans, cream cheese and a bit of heat. It is, in a way, a cross between chowder and chili. Yeah, I am in total soup mode now that winter is really upon us. The other day I was heating up my lunch and inquiring […]

Delightfully moist and wonderful corn muffins with real corn, bacon, sharp cheddar cheese and jalapeno peppers to give them a little bite. Sure to become a favorite.

Hot Pepper Harissa Bean & Veggie Stew

Hot Pepper Harissa Bean & Veggie Stew ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spicy #vegetable #stew #recipe

I had never met Harissa until I read Ally’s cookbook. This woman seriously has an incredible repertoire of flavors from all over the world. There is an entire chapter dedicated to some very intriguing spices and Harissa was one of them. I took one look and knew I had to try it. From North Africa, […]


Grilled Zucchini Corn Salsa

Grilled Zucchini Corn Salsa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #smoky #grilled #salsa #recipe

Allow me to introduce you to my latest obsession … actually, I already introduced you, but I fear you may not have noticed because I made the introduction as a topping for another dish, and I have to apologize for that. This beautiful grilled salsa is finding its way into so many crevasses in my life that […]


Mexican Zucchini Lasagna

Mexican Zucchini Lasagna ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #glutenfree #paleo #zucchini #mexican #lasagna #recipe

I had this brilliant idea to make a Mexican-inspired lasagna using zucchini in place of the lasagna noodles. I mixed ricotta with a little cumin, oregano, cilantro, chipotle powder and Mexican cheeses. In each layer I added taco meat, bell peppers and jalapeno, black beans, sweet corn, and in place of the tomato sauce I […]

The fish on its own is […]

Zucchini Taco Boats

Zucchini Taco Boats ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #Mexican #food #recipe #recipe

Inspired by Homemade Interest I saw these pretty TexMex Zucchini Boats from Homemade Interest  and immediately decided that it needed to be one of the recipes I made for my healthy Mexican cooking class at work. I made mine a little differently, of course, as you know I just can’t follow a recipe! I used my […]


Mexican Taco Lettuce Wraps

Mexican Taco Lettuce Wraps ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #healthy #Mexican #taco #recipe

I have a cooking class to teach on Monday and I chose a Mexican theme for our class this month. We have a nutrition and an exercise program at work, so my classes are pretty much always “with a healthy spin” to fit with our corporate healthy initiative … but yeah, it’s not like this […]
