Spinach Mushroom Breakfast Scramble

Spinach Mushroom Breakfast Scramble ~Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #healthy #delicious #breakfast #recipe

I am a huge fan of omelets and frittatas, but they take time and effort … and usually they contain lots of eggs and a lesser amount of toppings. And personally, I want more of the good stuff and less of the boring stuff. Not saying eggs are boring … because I really love eggs, […]


Mushroom Potato Hash

Mushroom Potato Hash ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quick #breakfast #recipe

A simple dish that is so comforting and delicious … and healthy, too! Mushrooms and potatoes fried up into a lovely hash, with a bit of cheese and a fried egg on top. This is my idea of breakfast paradise. The other day I was thinking back to many years ago when I lived in California. […]


Zoodles with Parmesan Mushroom Meatballs

Zoodles with Vegetarian Parmesan Mushroom Meatballs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #meatless #meatballs #recipe

Adapted slightly from Cooktoria A healthy, delicious meatless dish made from mushrooms, zucchini (ok, I used yellow squash), and a bit of cheese and breadcrumbs that is surprisingly convincing at masquerading as the “real” thing. Meatballs made of mushrooms? Yes, I went there. Yes, if you pay close attention, you will be able to tell there really […]


Sausage & White Cheddar Spinach Balls

Sausage & White Cheddar Spinach Balls ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesy #appetizer #recipe

These savory little spinach balls are a great way to re-purpose leftover stuffing after a big meal. They have just the right mix of flavors to make them totally addictive … I found myself eating them for breakfast, lunch, mid-afternoon snacks … you name it, these spinach balls were my food buddies. My first attempt […]

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 […]


Ham & Asparagus Breakfast Quinoa

Ham & Asparagus Breakfast QUinoa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesy #breakfast #quinoa #egg #recipe

Cheesy goodness, the nutty quinoa goes so perfectly with the roasted asparagus and salty ham. Add an egg with that delightful runny yolk and it’s breakfast heaven (if you ask me). The asparagus is almost done and I don’t want it to go … I know, I could still buy some from the store, but […]


Asparagus Sweet Pepper Egg Scramble

Asparagus Sweet Pepper Egg Scramble ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #quick #healthy #breakfast #recipe

I went to yoga last weekend and it was an “easy class” … I usually go to power yoga classes and if I find myself in an easier class I find little ways to make it more challenging. I want to be challenged. This class wasn’t all that challenging, but it was at the butterfly […]


Chocolate Peanut Butter Breakfast Bars

Adapted slightly from Food Faith Fitness Oh dear foodie friends, I did it! After 4 months, I am within 1 lb. of my weight-loss goal. Some people might say I should wait to celebrate until I’m there, but (a couple pounds ago) one of my friends looked at me like it’s time to stop … I said I […]


Grilled Cheddar Swiss Breakfast Sandwich

Grilled Cheddar Swiss Breakfast Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls - a bit of mustard makes this tastebud nirvana

Did you know that April is National Grilled Cheese Month? It is!!! I know I’m weird, but that really makes me happy. I adore grilled cheese sandwiches–both making them and eating them. Toasting the bread to perfection while getting the cheese good and melty is the challenge, and when achieved, the simple grilled cheese sandwich […]


Irish Barmbrack Bread {in the Bread Machine}

Irish Barmbrack Bread with tea-soaked raisins ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #wholewheat #irish #yeast #breadmachine #recipe

Adapted from Seasons & Suppers St. Patty’s Day is just around the corner. It’s one of my favorite holidays … and no, not just because of the beer. I have always been fascinated with Ireland. It’s on the list of places I must go. When I visited England and Scotland years ago, I wanted to […]


Spinach & Mushroom Breakfast Quinoa

Spinach & Mushroom Breakfast Quinoa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesy #breakfast #quinoa #recipe

A hot, healthy, hearty, satisfying breakfast that comes together in minutes if you have pre-cooked quinoa in your fridge. It was my friend Ann at Fountain Avenue Kitchen that introduced me to the concept of breakfast quinoa. It’s a marvelous thing … quinoa makes such a perfect base for a fried egg. Quinoa is such […]


Garden Harvest Breakfast Bowl

Garden Harvest Breakfast Bowl ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #baked #egg #breakfast #recipe

This lovely breakfast is a little “nest” made out of grilled (or roasted) harvest veggies, with an egg baked in the middle, topped with a bit of cheese. You can add breakfast meat such as breakfast sausage or a bit of bacon if you like, too, but to me, it’s not needed. The fresh garden […]


Zucchini Tagliatelle w Mushrooms, Cheesy Quinoa & Egg

Zucchini Taglietelle with Wild Mushroom, Cheesy Quinoa & Egg ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #breakfast #morel #mushroom #recipe

I needed a hearty, healthy breakfast and a zucchini noodle dish topped with cheesy quinoa with egg came to mind. Zucchini noodles (aka “Zoodles”) always seem to be in a spaghetti sort of noodle shape, which is way fun, but there are other blades on my spiralizer, and I thought I ought to try a […]


Zoodle Ricotta Pepperoni Pizza

Zucchini Noodle Pepperoni "Pizza" ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #cheesy #veggie #zoodle #recipe

Adapted slightly from The Dinner Mom I am still working on my “eat more veggies” initiative where I’m trying to eat more veggies every day. For a while, I let veggies take over my life, but then I realized I was overdoing it … and in the process, making myself miserable. Yes, it’s good to […]

These healthy little egg and veggie muffin-lings are a perfect make-ahead for breakfast on the go. They reheat quickly in the microwave, just 30 sec – 1 minute, and are nicely portable. You can eat them with a fork or as finger food. They are high in protein and fiber and help you get some […]


Fried Purple Potato Skins with Egg

Fried Purple Potato Skins with Egg ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #potatoskin #breakfast #recipe

The other day I was peeling purple potatoes to make a fancy shmancy purple potato dish … as I was peeling, I was thinking how beautiful my fancy potatoes would be … but then my thoughts turned to the peels and I remembered a holiday when I caught my brother in law frying up all the purple potato […]


Blueberry Banana Baked Oatmeal

Blueberry Banana Baked Oatmeal with Toasted Walnuts & Maple Syrup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #baked #oatmeal #healthy #decadent #breakfast #recipe

with toasted walnuts & maple syrup … adapted from Pumpkin ‘n Spice Once I tried that Peanut Butter Chocolate Baked Oatmeal, every baked oatmeal recipe that crossed my path had me wondering .. is this as good as that was? I found this brilliant Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal from Pumpkin ‘n Spice and I couldn’t wait to […]


Blueberry Gooseberry Oat Crumble

Blueberry Gooseberry Oat Crumble ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls#healthy #breakfast #berry #dessert #recipe

My friend had so many gooseberries on her gooseberry bush last summer that she froze an over-abundance of them and then convinced me that I just HAD to take some home with me. I relented without too much coaxing because I do love gooseberries. I discovered if you mix them with blueberries they compliment each […]


Spinach Havarti Grilled Cheese Egg in a Hole

Spinach Havarti Grilled Cheese Egg in a Hole ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #grilledcheese #egg #breakfast #recipe

I get food inspirations at the oddest moments. I was driving around town the other day when the idea of a grilled cheese egg in a hole popped into my mind. I thought “really I must try that this weekend” and filed it away in the back of my mind. It’s Saturday morning and as soon […]


Tomato Basil & Gouda Breakfast Sandwich

Tomato Basil & Smoked Gouda Breakfast Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #breakfast #sandwich #recipe

I have just a few fresh garden tomatoes left (the last from the plants I brought inside when it started freezing at night) and I want to put these last little garden treasures to good use. The other day I made myself a cheesy bruschetta, which is always good, and this morning I was craving something […]


Black Bean & Rice Fiesta Breakfast

Black Bean & Rice Fiesta Breakfast ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #hearty #easy #meatless #breakfast #recipe

Here’s another delicious use for that Cilantro Lime Rice … make a TexMex breakfast out of it! I had this for breakfast one very busy morning because I wanted to eat up the last bit of the cilantro lime rice before my kids and I headed out for the day’s adventure. I needed a simple […]

Crab, Mushroom & Asparagus Frittata

Crab, Mushroom & Asparagus Frittata ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #gourmet #breakfast #recipe

with Havarti and MontAmoré cheese We traveled this weekend and I came home to asparagus and mushrooms in my refrigerator that, in our rush to get ready, I’d neglected to cook before the trip. We also happen to have some leftover crab legs in our fridge from our last seafood outing when my daughter and I (who […]


Chipotle Ham & Tomato Souffle Cups

Chipotle Ham & Tomato Souffle Cups ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #mini #souffle #appetizer

I am baking up a storm because my friends and I are having a “wine & design” night on Friday night and they’ve conned me into bringing the food. Not like they had to twist my arm very hard … I just love to cook. I even took Friday off of work so I can […]
