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 […]


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 […]


Fresh Apricot Ginger Peasant Cake

Fresh Apricot Ginger Peasant Cake ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cake #dessert #recipe

Adapted slightly from The Luna Cafe I was smitten with this cake the instant I saw it … especially since mom and dad still have bunches of fresh apricots from their tree that need using. The Luna Cafe describes this cake as “a simple, earthy cake in the clafouti tradition and a delicious vehicle for late summer fruit […]


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 […]


Strawberry Ginger Oat Scones

Strawberry Ginger Oat Scones ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #scone #recipe

Adapted from Cookin Canuck I made these scones when we were up at my parents’ place last time. We didn’t coordinate very well on who was bringing what and found ourselves with an over-abundance of fresh strawberries. So I was tasked with using up some of the strawberries. I debated over several berry recipes, but […]


Blueberry Gooseberry Yogurt Smoothie

Blueberry Gooseberry Smoothie ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #smoothie #recipe

I have three big bags of frozen gooseberries in my freezer, from my friend who has a very lively and productive gooseberry bush. I was so pleased to have them because I ADORE gooseberries, but they are such a rich-tasting fruit, I’ve been a little puzzled about what to do with all these lovely green […]


Savory Onion Pepper Feta Breakfast Quinoa

Savory Sweet Pepper & Onion Breakfast Quinoa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #breakfast #egg #quinoa #recipe

Inspired by a recipe from my good friend Ann over at The Fountain Avenue Kitchen. A hearty, protein and fiber-rich breakfast, full of contrasting textures and tastes to please your palate and keep you going through the day (or at least through one power yoga class). Saturday morning Vinyasa yoga classes with Roscha at the […]


Cinnamon Chocolate Chia Pudding

Cinnamon Chocolate Chia Pudding

So I have these chia seeds that I won from Lauren at Nutri-Savvy and Ruth’s Foods and I’ve heard they make a nice pudding … tapioca-like. Well, of course I had to try a chocolate version. I added a little cinnamon because I love the taste of cinnamon and chocolate together: the taste combination reminds me of Mexican […]


Baked Strawberry Walnut Quinoa Bites

I’ve been intrigued with the idea of baking with quinoa for a while now, so when I stumbled across this pretty muffin recipe from Poor Girl Eats Well, I really wanted to try it. They turned out a little differently what I expected, though, which is why I’m not calling them muffins. When I think of […]
