Jeri’s Fabulous Almond Torte

Jeri's Fabulous Almond Torte ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #almond #dessert #recipe

A celebration of almonds in a dense, almond torte, this simple yet elegant dessert requires just a few ingredients! The top of it has a lovely crunch, with the rest of the torte all soft and chewy and wonderful. Last week my friend Jeri said to me, with excitement in her eyes, “Ann I made a torte […]

Peppy's Pita Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Pita #Bread #Recipe #Breadmachine

Adapted from AllRecipes.com Puffy part-whole wheat, homemade pitas that split nicely in two if you cut them open. Easy to make and so good for easy lunches and suppers!

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, […]


Eggnog Toffee Squares

Eggnog Toffee Squares ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #shortbread #toffee #eggnog #dessert #recipe

Adapted just very slightly from Baking in a Tornado These delightful little squares are like toffee with a soft shortbread cookie crust, and it doesn’t stick to your teeth like toffee sometimes does. They would go well with a cup of hot chai or coffee or even a glass of holiday eggnog. Every Saturday I have a virtual party […]

No Knead Peasant Bread baked in a bowl ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #yeast #bread #recipe

Adapted just slightly from Alexandra Cooks, with a big thank you to Cooking with Mary & Friends A lovely white bread with a soft, tender inside and a crunchy outside. It requires no bread machine, no kneading, and roughly 3 hours of time to make, from start to finish and most of that time is waiting for the dough […]


Brandied Cinnamon Peach Cobbler

Brandied Cinnamon Peach Cobbler ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #peach #cobbler #recipe

The weekend after I got back from vacation with my kids, one of my foodie friends kept reminding me (in multiple ways) about the Peach festival going on … I wasn’t in much of a mood for a festival after our big vacay, but I was DEFINITELY in the mood for some good peaches. So […]

with Avocado Cilantro Lime Dipping Sauce … Adapted from The Foodie Physician This recipe has been on my to-do list for a while now … I love onion rings! But I hate the way fried foods make me feel. So I decided last Saturday it was time to try out my friend Sonali The Foodie […]


Whiskey Green Tomato Cake {Again}

Whiskey Green Tomato Cake

I’m re-sharing this post from July 2012 because it got screwed up in the move from the old blog to the new one … and it’s a really good cake, with a good story … Last week my aunt from Florida came to visit. I don’t know how many stops she had planned on her […]


Whiskey Green Tomato Cake

Whiskey Green Tomato Cake

Last week my aunt from Florida came to visit. I don’t know how many stops she had planned on her trip, but one of them was to visit my parents … I suspected she would go see mom, but I didn’t really know until it was my turn to see my aunt. My daughter and […]


Heavenly Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Brownies

Heavenly Chocolate Brownies with Pretzels & Caramel

It was Thursday, and every Thursday I have to pick up my daughter from school and take her to dance lessons. She is always STARVING right after school because they feed her lunch very early in the day, so I have to bring her a snack. Usually I try to make it healthy, and yes, […]


Speckled Pepperoni Cheese Bread

Speckled Pepperoni Cheese Bread

The magic of this bread is it has these teeny tiny little speckles of pepperoni and an underlying hint of cheesiness to it, but the flavors are very subtle, so you have this soft savory bread with just a hint of this extra flavor and (if you don’t tell them ahead of time) people can’t quite […]


Pumpkin, Pepper, Ham & Cheesy Rice Skillet Casserole

Pumpkin, Pepper, Ham & Cheesy Rice Skillet Casserole

with dill, thyme, and tomato This is a comforting, homey dish that goes straight from stovetop to oven to the table and is a delicious, complete and healthy meal all in one pan. I returned from Thanksgiving at my parents’ house with a car full of food, wine, a spectacular placemat my mom found for […]


Berry White Chocolate Scones

Raspberry White Chocolate Scones

There is a local coffee shop in our town that makes the best raspberry white chocolate scones. They only serve them on weekend mornings and if you don’t get there early enough, you won’t get a scone because they ALWAYS run out of them. I used to crave those scones, and I would seriously pout […]


The Saturday Morning Craze & Peanut Butter Banana Scones

Peanut Butter Banana Scones

This is part of my series of 31 Days of Warmer Connections. Every day in October, I am blogging about connections through food. Most people get to relax on Saturday mornings, don’t they? Ours are never that way. Well, sometimes in the summer we can have a lazy Saturday, but most of the time it is a […]
