Remember the other day when I made Shakshuka and I mentioned that you should make a double batch of the (simple-to-make) sauce because I had other ideas for how to use it? Well, if you missed it, go pop over and introduce yourself to the deliciousness that is Shakshuka. Double the sauce recipe. Then use […]


Product Review: Pete’s Seafood Club

Pete's Seafood Club ~ Spinach & Feta Stuffed Salmon

Sometimes I get requests from food (or food-related) companies to review their products. This time I got a rather unusual invitation to come and visit Pete’s Seafood‘s location in Southern California. I (sadly) had to decline … I am too far away to visit their factory, but I told them I would be very glad […]

Spanakopita Dip {Spinach & Feta with Dill}

Spanakopita Dip ~ Greek-style #Spinach, Feta, & Dill #Dip from Sumptuous Spoonfuls

A dip with all the flavors of one of my very favorite Greek foods: Spanakopita. Flavorful and low in calories, this dip is wonderful on toasted bread (especially a nice crusty bread like Ciabatta!) … and I’m thinking it would be marvelous as a sandwich spread too. This dip happened by accident … one of […]

Tomato, Egg & Cilantro Pesto Breakfast Wrap ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #breakfast #wrap #recipe

This is a simple, tasty breakfast that was born one morning when my daughter decided not to eat the egg I’d made her for breakfast.

Tomato Feta Baked Egg Ramekins

Tomato Feta Baked Egg Ramekins ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #baked #egg #recipe

I don’t know what it is about baking eggs and vegies that makes them taste so good, but every time I have a perfectly baked egg, it surprises me how good it tastes. It’s such a simple thing, really. Crack an egg in a ramekin and bake it. Well, okay, I can never quite make […]


Sundried Tomato Pesto Harvest Vegie “Noodles”

Sundried Tomato Pesto Harvest Vegie Noodles

Shhhh … they aren’t really “noodles” … they just look sort of like noodles. They don’t really taste like noodles either, but I love the noodley look of this colorful vegetable medley. The Pesto Rosso (a.k.a, sundried tomato pesto) really complements the sauteed veggies too, especially when you add some crumbles of cheese on top. […]

Jump Up Chicken Orange Salad with Feta & Toasted Pecans

I was scrounging for lunch again yesterday … my body was so hungry for something good, delicious, healthy. My organic salad greens in the fridge were almost gone. There wasn’t much to be had in the fridge except some cut fruit and a bit of cheese. But I ALWAYS have plenty of food in the […]


Rainbow Symphony Fruit Salad with Walnuts & Feta

Black Bean, Feta and Avocado Couscous Citrus Salad

Couscous, Black Bean, Kumquat and Avocado Salad with Feta, Cucumber, and Toasted Pine Nuts

I was telling my yoga friend about this salad and she asked how it is that I have all these […]

Fabulous Baked Felafel

Felafel is a traditional middle eastern food: usually deep fried little balls of spiced chickpea batter. Crunchy, delicious, and actually healthy for you, even if you fry them. These felafel are baked, though, so they are even better for you. Packed with protein and vegies and all kinds of good herbs and spices. Don’t even […]
