Honey Mango Rose Italian Cream Soda

Honey Mango Rose Italian Cream Soda ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Homemade #Tropical #Italian #Soda #Recipe

My daughter and I love to make Italian Cream Sodas in the summertime. We’ve dreamed up some pretty fantabulous flavors over the years … but we strive for at least one new flavor every year. This year’s idea was hers. The color of this delicious cream soda is subtle … not as vibrant as some […]


Easy Peasy Chocolate Fondue

Easy Peasy Chocolate Fondue ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #5minute #chocolate #fondue #recipe

This super easy chocolate fondue cooks in the microwave, so it’s ready in less than 5 minutes. It will take you longer to assemble the dippers than it will to make the fondue! You see, since I made the cheese fondue, I had to make a chocolate fondue too! Because a fondue party just isn’t complete […]


Bacon Cheddar Chipotle Potato Soup

Bacon Cheddar Chipotle Potato Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesy #spicy #smoky #potato #soup #recipe

Creamy, cheesy potato soup with the spicy smoky zing of chipotle peppers and a bit of bacon to add to the smokiness. I made it gluten free by using tapioca flour for the thickener, but you can use regular flour if you don’t have a sensitivity to gluten. I made this soup for a little […]


Brandied Peach Mango Ice Cream Pie

Brandied Peach Mango Ice Cream Pie ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #frozen #peach #dessert #recipe

with butter pecan crust and crumbles … inspired by Stephie Cooks, Grandparents Plus Crumb Crusts and Personal Creations because who doesn’t love ice cream … and pie … and peaches … and mangoes … and brandy … and pecans … and butter with brown sugar? Recently I was sent a beautiful new pie plate from Personal Creations with an invitation […]


The Rhubarb Rose Cocktail

The Rhubarb Rose Cocktail ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls#rhubarb #strawberry #cream #cocktail #recipe

I don’t know what’s come over me … normally, I’m not much of a “cocktail” kinda gal. I pretty much stick to beer and wine–they are both predictable and consistent and leave you feeling about the same way after you drink them. No surprises. But this year, I don’t know why …  I just have […]


Better than Panera Broccoli Cheese Soup {Copycat}

Better than Panera Broccoli Cheese Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #copycat #supercreamy #broccoli #cheddar #soup #recipe

Adapted from Averie Cooks I went to Panera the other day while my daughter was at an appointment. I really went there just to have a cup of coffee and hang out until she was done, but I found myself wanting some good soup. So I decided to try a cup of their broccoli cheese soup. […]


Light & Luscious New England Clam Chowder

New England Clam Chowder ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #light #creamy #clam #chowder #recipe

A creamy, rich-tasting clam chowder … you wouldn’t even guess that it’s lightened up! I’ve discovered something marvelous about making creamy soups. A little bit of Greek cream cheese in the soup adds a creamy texture and flavor and adds a nice bit of protein without adding a lot of fat. The other “trick” I used in this […]


Hasselback Potatoes Au Gratin

Hasselback Potatoes Au Gratin ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthier #scalloped #potato #hasselback #recipe

Adapted from The Baker Chick. Au gratin potatoes with garlic and rosemary, made in hasselback fashion so the tops of the potatoes get crunchy while the bottoms are tender and cheesy. Some might call these scalloped potatoes, but I’ve been told that if there is cheese involved, then it’s au gratin, not scalloped. Scalloped potatoes are […]


Baby Pink Raspberry Ice Cream

Baby Pink Raspberry Ice Cream ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #icecream #raspberry #recipe

It’s September, everyone is posting pumpkin and apple and soup recipes, and I’m posting ICE CREAM? Yeah, I know, it’s a little odd, but hey, it IS raspberry season in my world, and my friend Jessica is pregnant. I promised Jessica last summer sometime that I would make her ice cream, once we found out whether her baby […]


Strawberry Rhubarb Wine Ice Cream

Strawberry Rhubarb Wine Ice Cream ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #icecream #recipe

A lower fat ice cream adapted from Cooking Light I’ve been fascinated with the idea of wine ice cream for quite a while now … I read it was a hot food trend a while back (who knows how long ago–there is no timeline in my mind that keeps track of when I saw this […]


Mint Chip Irish Cream Ice Cream

Mint Chip Irish Cream Ice Cream ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthier #Irish #dessert #recipe

This recipe is an interesting balance of decadent and healthy ingredients to make a delightfully creamy mint ice cream laced with Irish cream liqueur and little bits of minted chocolate that’s perfect for St. Patrick’s Day (or any day when you want a little mint chocolate ice cream). Really I never know where I’ll end […]


Bacon Provolone Potato Leek Soup

Bacon Provolone Potato Leek Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

I am rejoicing in the magic of leeks. Often throughout my culinary history, I’ve wondered why the distinction between leeks and onions? I mean really, they are just onions, right? It’s funny that it took me this long to realize that they are DIFFERENT! I like how WH Foods describes them: “With a more delicate […]


Stracciatella Gelato

Stracciatella Gelato ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Italian #Ice Cream #recipe

Adapted from The Italian Chef I love the word Stracciatella … Italians have such a way of making things sound so romantic and beautiful. The first time I laid eyes on this Stracciatella Gelato from The Italian Chef, I wanted to try it. But of course, the timing wasn’t right … I didn’t have all the ingredients […]


The Mighty Denver Breakfast Sandwich

The Mighty Denver Breakfast Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Breakfast #Recipe

Think Denver omelet in a sandwich, kicked up a notch in flavor with some marvelously melty Havarti cheese, a slice of juicy red garden tomato and a good schmear of smoky Roasted Red Pepper Cashew Cream Sauce. When I heard that the awesome Swedish Pancake Pan from Swiss Diamond was on its way to my house, […]


Bacon Asiago Quiche Tomato Cups

Bacon Asiago Quiche Tomato Cups ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #appetizer #recipe

Inspired by ChinDeep’s Florentine Custard Tomato Souffles I am coming to the end of my summer tomatoes … I know, it’s November, but I waited for them to ripen. Did you know, those green tomatoes CAN get perfectly red? All you have to do is set them nearby a ripe tomato and they will ripen. […]


Creamy Cilantro Tomatillo Soup

Creamy Cilantro Tomatillo Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

The taste of a tomatillo is tart and lemony, but also a little sweet, especially when you roast them like I did for this soup. Tomatillos don’t turn all creamy in texture like cauliflower does when you roast and puree it; they retain a bit of their original texture even after they’ve been roasted and […]


Fresh, Simple Vanilla Ice Cream + 11 Other Flavors

Fresh & Simple Vanilla Ice Cream + 11 MORE delicious ice cream recipes ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #ice cream #recipe

It’s National Ice Cream Day! AND July is National Ice Cream MONTH. I decided that means it’s time to re-post my dad’s super simple recipe for vanilla ice cream AND include some links to 11 other delicious ice cream recipes you can make at home. Don’t let the simplicity of this vanilla ice cream make […]


Lemon Berry Sherbet

Lemon Berry Sherbet ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sherbet #recipe

I got this recipe from my sister. Leave it to my sister to find the perfect sherbet recipe. She has the best recipes. I could never seem to find the right mix of ingredients for sherbet. When we went to visit my parents a couple weekends ago, they had just made strawberry sherbet with fresh […]


Mulberry Maple Rose Italian Cream Sodas

Mulberry Maple Rose Cream Sodas ~ Sumptuous Spoonfus #summer #drink #recipe

After we made those Strawberry Rose Cream Sodas, I went and improved on the recipe … this time I used mulberries, with the rest of my roses (hey, they were there!) and then I added a touch of maple syrup. Oh goodness these were good. My daughter loved them even more than the strawberry rose […]


Strawberry Rose Italian Cream Sodas

Strawberry Rose Italian Cream Sodas ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Cream #Soda #Recipe

It’s summertime and in my house, that means it’s time for Italian Cream Sodas! My daughter just LOVES sipping on these beautiful drinks. We are experimenting with some new flavors this year. Mostly with berries, because we have so many berries, but this year, we thought it would be fun to try adding roses. The syrup […]


Lemon Blueberry Ricotta Cream Scones

Lemon Blueberry Ricotta Cream Scones ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #scone #recipe

Adapted from Smitten Kitchen Scrumptious blueberry scones made with whole wheat flour, ricotta cheese and fat free half & half. The top of the scones are lovely and crunchy from the turbinado sugar, and the middle is perfectly tender and moist. The berries provide delightful bits of sweet juice and the lemon, well, you just […]


Broccoli Cauli Cheese Soup

Broccoli Cauli Cheese Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

The thick, creamy texture of this broccoli cheese soup may trick your tongue into believing you are eating something that’s rich and full of cream. The magic is that it’s NOT! The thick, creamy texture comes from blended cauliflower, while the pretty orange color comes from carrots. Yes, there is cheese in the soup, but […]


Cannoli Cream-Filled Strawberries

Cannoli Cream-Filled Strawberries ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert #recipe

This recipe is from Full Belly Sisters. She is the queen of creative Cannoli recipes! (Not to mention her Green Grilled Cheese Sandwich is seriously amazing.) This is another recipe we made for the International themed birthday party … when my daughter saw these beautiful berries from Full Belly Sisters, she wanted to reach right through […]


Fresh & Simple Peppermint Stick Ice Cream

Fresh & Simple Homemade Peppermint Stick Ice Cream

One of my favorite winter treats is Peppermint Stick Ice Cream … I used to buy it around Christmas-time every year because that is the only time you would see it in the stores. If you happen to have any candy canes left after the holidays, it is really quite simple to make. It takes […]
