Sausage & Shrimp Southern Gumbo

Shrimp & Sausage Southern Gumbo ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #shrimp #sausage #gumbo #mardigras #soup #recipe

It’s almost time for Mardi Gras! Although I live in the north, I’ve traveled to the south and tasted some pretty dang awesome southern food–and one of the dishes that tops the yumminess charts for me is Louisiana gumbo. I’ve always wanted to make an authentic gumbo at home, and since Mardi Gras is coming up, […]


Light & Luscious New England Clam Chowder

New England Clam Chowder ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #light #creamy #clam #chowder #recipe

A creamy, rich-tasting clam chowder … you wouldn’t even guess that it’s lightened up! I’ve discovered something marvelous about making creamy soups. A little bit of Greek cream cheese in the soup adds a creamy texture and flavor and adds a nice bit of protein without adding a lot of fat. The other “trick” I used in this […]

Shrimp & Andouille Quinoa Jambalaya ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Cajun #MardiGras #recipe

A tasty light cucumber salad that takes advantage of garden fresh produce, fresh herbs and some exotic flavors from Thailand and the Orient. This week has been a rough week for me on a lot of levels. I won’t trouble you with the details, but suffice it to say there is some teenage angst, young […]


Super Simple Spicy Thai Peanut Sauce

Super Simple Spicy Thai Peanut Sauce

I went looking for an easy Thai Peanut Sauce recipe last night because I’m enthralled with Thai food and I wanted to make Thai Chicken Pizza, but I can never find all the ingredients that authentic Thai recipes seem to require. I couldn’t believe my luck! If you can find fish sauce and Thai-style curry […]


Herb Salad with Chicken, Feta, Pinons & Oriental Vinaigrette

Herb Salad with Breaded Chicken, Feta Cheese, Pinon Nuts and Oriental Vinaigrette

I don’t know if you noticed but I was away from my kitchen last week, travelling in California. The company I work for lives out in California … everyone else who works for this company lives in California. Most of them come into the office every day. I am the lone midwestern employee, working remotely. […]
