Marinated Havarti Cheese

Marinated Havarti Cheese with Tarragon & Dill ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #appetizer #recipe

with Tarragon & Dill Years and years ago, my friend Justine from Full Belly Sisters posted her recipe for marinated cheese. I was intrigued by the recipe and I wanted to try it, but it took me a while before I actually did. I decided, one year, to give my coworkers on my team all […]


Sunflower Kale Bulgur Pilaf

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 […]

Dilly Potato Asparagus Frittata

Dilly Potato Asparagus Frittata ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #herbs #eggs #recipe #easy #quick

This frittata is like an open-faced omelet … fluffy eggs with potato, sauteed asparagus, onion, a little sweet corn, some fresh dill and other herbs with lots of melty cheese. This was a breakfast creation I made for the family over the 4th of July weekend. They were a little confused when I took it […]


Sunflower Dill Pesto

Sunflower Dill Pesto ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dill #pesto #recipe #glutenfree #dairyfree #nutfree

I learn the most amazing things from vegetarians. I don’t know what it is about them, but vegetarians seem to have a streak of culinary creativity that is just pure genius. Perhaps it’s because they’ve removed meat from the equation so they have to find other means to add deliciousness to their meals … I’m […]


Mediterranean Cucumber Tomato Salad

Mediterranean Cucumber Tomato Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #light #easy #summer #salad #recipe

with sweet onions, fresh oregano, parsley, dill, feta cheese and a light lemon herb vinaigrette We’ve made it to the dog days of summer already … the kind of scorching hot day where you don’t even want to go outside, ice water and air conditioning are the best things ever and you don’t feel like […]


Spring Crab & Asparagus Dip

Spring Crab & Asparagus Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #crab #asparagus #dip #recipe

I took a break from dips … I don’t know how it happened, or why. Perhaps it was that marathon health kick I went on when I was trying to get skinny. (It worked, by the way! I’m officially back to my ideal weight.) But lately I’ve had the munchies and I looked over my […]


Asparagus Crab Bisque

Asparagus Crab Bisque ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #healthy #soup #recipe

with Asiago cheese and fresh dill This soup happened by accident. I was looking for some green beans in my freezer and pulled out a package that looked like green beans, but as I thawed it, I realized that it wasn’t green beans, it was asparagus! Now, don’t get me wrong, I totally LOVE asparagus, […]


Dilled German Potato Dumplings {Kartoffelklösse}

Dilled German Potato Dumplings ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #German #Potato #Dumpling #Recipe

Adapted from Quick German Recipes I’m declaring this week to be Octoberfest on my blog because I have a (small) plethora of German recipes to share with you this week. I hope I can find time to blog them all because it is going to be a very busy week, but I have some delicious […]


Bacon Goat Cheese Heirloom Tomato Galette

Bacon Goat Cheese Heirloom Tomato Galette ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #savory #tomato #pie #recipe

I have been working on this recipe for a while … the cheese mixture I had down on the first try. It was the crust I struggled with. First I tried it with a phyllo pastry crust, but the crust was too dry. I am not sure what I did wrong … I’ve had good […]


Sriracha Ranch Yogurt Dressing

Sriracha Ranch Yogurt Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #light #healthy #spicy #creamy #salad #dressing #dip

I adore a good salad, especially a salad that has lots of flavor. One day when I was out to dinner with my kids, I spotted a “modern taco salad” on the menu, made with shredded pork and served with Sriracha Ranch dressing. I just HAD to taste that Sriracha Ranch … it was so good, […]


Super Simple Lactose Free Ranch Dressing

Lactose Free Ranch Dressing ~ #nondairy #ranch #dressing #dip #recipe

One day at work a friend of mine messaged me, asking if I had a lactose-free recipe for ranch dressing. She has a great love for ranch dressing, but lately has developed a lactose intolerance and she was so sad that she is unable to eat her beloved ranch anymore (well, she still CAN eat it, but … […]


Sausage & Pepper Potato Swirl Hash

Sausage & Pepper Potato Swirl Hash ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #potato #sausage #breakfast #hash #recipe

It was a quiet Sunday morning. The teenagers were asleep, it was just me and the cats. I wanted something good for breakfast, but just couldn’t quite settle on what to have. So I piddled around the house, doing this and that, getting a few things done but mostly just sipping tea and looking at […]


Mixed Herb Pesto

Mixed Herb Pesto ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #herb #pesto #recipe

The harvest has not even begun and still, I’m readying myself for the end of summer. I’ve seen the “back to school” signs in the store that always signify the end is near … why do they do that to us? It’s still July, can’t we just enjoy the warmth and colors of our beautiful […]


Ham, Cheese & Chive Crescent Pinwheels

Ham, Cheese & Chive Cresent Pinwheels ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #portable #sandwich #recipe

Perfect picnic food … they are like little portable sandwiches you can take with you anywhere. Great for dipping in soup, or you could serve them as an appetizer. The best part, in my mind, is that no cans of crescent roll dough were used in the making of these little portable sandwiches. I was looking […]


Marvelous Make-ahead Loaded Potato Casserole

Marvelous Make Ahead Loaded Baked Potato Casserole ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #potato #recipe

I think ever since I discovered twice-baked potatoes as a young teen, I was in love with them. For many years I made them, scooped out the potato from the shell, mashed it up, added cheese, bacon, peppers, onions, carefully scooped my precious mixture back into the shells and baked again. It made for a […]


Crisp & Spicy Pickled Green Beans

Crisp & Spicy Pickled Green Beans ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pickle #recipe

I’ll be the first to admit: I’m not an expert at pickles. My parents, on the other hand, have many many years of experience making pickles and when I got the sudden urge to pickle Mom’s green beans, Mom and Dad were right there to give me some pickling tips. My dad taught me how […]


Herbed Bacon Sundried Tomato Cheese Spread

Herbed Bacon Sundried Tomato Cheese Spread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheese #recipe

Fresh herbs, smoky bacon taste, and sundried tomatoes make for a cheese spread that’s bursting with flavor. I wrote this while I was on vacation in Winnipeg with my daughter … This was one of those recipes I thought of and stored in the back of my mind. I ended up making the recipe at […]


Shrimp, Asiago & Asparagus Risotto with Fresh Dill

Shrimp, Asiago & Asparagus Risotto with Fresh Dill ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #risotto #recipe

Rich and creamy risotto with tender shrimp and asparagus, the sharpness of Asiago cheese, and a bit of fresh dill and chives to add flavor. Risotto is one of those gourmet meals that is really not difficult to make and it doesn’t take long either. You can have it on the table in 30 minutes […]


Tomato Asiago Garden Salad

Tomato Asiago Garden Salad w Fresh Herb Cucumber Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #salad #recipe

with Chive Flowers and a Fresh Herb Cucumber Asiago Dressing The last time I was at my parents’ place, we were having fish for dinner (using my dad’s newest awesome way to make baked fish) and we needed a quick salad to go with it.  I had just a few minutes to get this together […]


Delightfully Dilly Egg Salad Sandwiches

Perfectly Dilly Egg Salad Sandwiches ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

Adapted from a beautiful recipe by my sweet friend Melissa at ChinDeep. It’s an egg salad sandwich that’s full of flavor instead of fat. What a concept, right? Greek yogurt comes into play to add creaminess & protein without adding fat. Fresh herbs are the finishing touch. It’s a little early here for fresh dill so […]


Salmon & Asparagus Salad Sandwich

Salmon & Asparagus Salad Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

Instead of tuna salad sandwiches, try using salmon for a change! It just tastes better. To make these sandwiches even healthier, I used Greek yogurt in place of most of the mayo. It works beautifully. You can use any kind of cooked salmon for this … or even canned salmon works. I made this recipe […]


Crispy Breaded Asparagus Spears

Crispy Breaded Asparagus Spears with Sriracha Dipping Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #asparagus #recipe

with Creamy Lemon Sriracha Dipping Sauce {gluten-free option … low in fat and calories} Slightly adapted from my dear foodie friend Ann at The Fountain Avenue Kitchen I have had my eye on this recipe for over a year, dying to try it … but somehow I just didn’t get around to making it last […]


Smoked Turkey Sandwich with Spanakopita Cream

Smoked Turkey with Spanakopita Cream Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

The weather did a total turnaround this week and went straight from winter (it froze again last Saturday night) to summer (92 degrees on Tuesday).  My daughter and I were SOOoooo hot so I bought some cold smoked turkey meat, fresh tomato and ciabatta rolls and  we’ve been devouring cold turkey sandwiches like they are […]
