Cilantro Avocado Sweet Pea Dip

Cilantro Avocado Sweet Pea Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #green #healthy #dip #recipe #StPatricksDay

Adapted from Magnolia Days It’s only two days until St. Patrick’s Day and I think we need more GREEN things in our lives, but oh please, let’s celebrate nature’s version of green (not the food-coloring green). This vibrant green dip is made of … yes, peas! Those lovely little round balls of green. And cilantro! One of […]


Halloween Veggie Tray

Halloween Veggie Tray with Mushroom "Skulls", Carrot "Fingers" and goblin eyes ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #halloween #party #idea

including 23 delicious dip ideas I was running about the Internet, searching for ideas for my Healthy Halloween cooking class, and I ran across some fun ideas for Halloween veggie trays. Carrots with an almond slice make nice “fingers” that can be used for dippers or sticking out of your dip bowl to look like a hand […]


Fire Roasted Mixed Herb Baba Ghanoush

Fire Roasted Mixed Herb Baba Ganoush ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #garlic #tahini Middle Eastern #dip #recipe

The first time I “met” Baba Ganoush was at a party with my sister (who is, by the way, a fabulous and very adventurous cook). She introduces me to SOooooo many new things that I have never thought or heard of.  She was raving about this wonderful Middle Eastern dip that her friends were serving, […]


Pesto Parmesan Peppercorn Dressing {Low fat}

Pesto Parmesan Peppercorn Salad Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #homemade #healthy #salad #dressing #recipe

I’ve noticed this summer at work there have been a lot of people bringing salads for lunch, but they don’t seem very thrilled about eating them. This seems strange to me. It appears that most people think of salads as something you SHOULD eat, not something they LIKE to eat. My mother told me that […]


Mexican Queso Dip Supreme

Mexican Queso Dip Supreme ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dip #recipe

When I’m at the grocery store, I like to poke around the cheese sections and see what I can find. One day, I found these beautiful cheeses and that made me think, “Ooh queso! Yes, that’s what I’ll bring to the lake with me!” … and so, along with the many varieties of banana bread […]


Pepperoni Pizza Cream Cheese “Schmear”

Pepperoni Pizza Cream Cheese Spread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheese #recipe

The other day I had an intense craving for cheese … all I could think of was hot, melty, oozing cheese … I told my coworker (and friend) this and she said “you need a grilled cheese sandwich” … oh that sounded just about right. There is a wonderful gourmet grilled cheese sandwich spot in […]


Balsamic Avocado Cheese Dip

Balsamic Avocado Cheese Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #avocado #cheese #dip #recipe

A creamy dip with avocado, cream cheese and a hint of balsamic vinaigrette. It goes perfect with chips, crackers, and vegies. I wanted to make an avocado dip that wasn’t guacamole. I started by mixing up a mashed avocado with a package of cream cheese and then started looking for something different to add to […]


“To Die For” Cheesy Chili Layer Dip

"To Die For" Cheesy Chili Layer Dip

I totally LOVE this dip … I confess I have, at several points in my life, been guilty of making a pot of chili just so I could make this dip.  And yes, when I made my latest chili (the Fire Roasted 7-Bean Crockpot Chili), this dip was definitely on my mind. My sister (the […]


Eggplant Parmesan Layer Dip

Eggplant Parmesan Dip

I had a big beautiful purple eggplant that was starting to fade, so I had to find a good use for it fast. I decided to make it into a dip … at first I was going to make some more baba ghanoush, but then I thought perhaps I could make something different with it […]


Baba Ghanoush: a smoky, wonderful dip

Baba Ghanoush: a creamy wonderful garlic eggplant dip

If you have never had Baba Ghanoush, you should try it. It’s a creamy, garlicky, silky smooth dip somewhat akin to hummus in flavor, but lighter and smoky tasting and oh so wonderful. It’s made of eggplant, but if someone didn’t tell you it was made of eggplant, you would never guess. I used the […]


Bacon & Caramelized Onion Dip

Caramelized Onion & Bacon Dip

Yeah, I’m on a dip kick lately. I’ve been feeling kinda down, and I like to munch and dip when I’m sad. My ultimate “comfort” food is potato chips and french onion dip (the kind made with real sour cream), but I have come to realize that eating it just makes me feel worse than […]
