Mushroom Smoked Gouda Grilled Cheese

Mushroom Smoked Gouda Grilled Cheese Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #delicious #lunch #recipe

When I had those treasured wild mushrooms that my dad gave me a while back, it threw me into a mushroom kick. Even after the wild mushrooms were gone, I had to have more mushrooms, so I went out and bought some of those oh-so-tame-but-still-pretty-good fresh mushrooms from the grocery store and I sauteed them […]

Split Pea Soup with Ham, Potato & Smoked Gouda Cheese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #hearty #splitpea #potato #soup #recipe

I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for over three years now and I’ve posted over 1,000 recipes and I’ve never posted a single recipe for split pea soup! That’s just crazy. I’m a split pea soup lover and I have been from the time I was little. I remember eating cans of split pea soup as a child and […]

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.

Crunchy toasted bread, melty smoked gouda cheese, with smoked turkey, sweet pears and peppery arugula.

One of the things I thought would be […]


Sausage & Pepper Stuffed Sweet Dumpling Squash

Sausage & Pepper Stuffed Sweet Dumpling Squash ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #squash #recipe

My sister brought me some beautiful treasures from her garden. She brought two of these adorable little squash that I totally labelled as gourds. She kept arguing with me that they were edible, and I stubbornly stuck to my stance that they were ornamental. You have to learn to stick your ground with me when […]


Smoked Cheddar & Gouda Breakfast BLT

Smoked Cheddar & Gouda Breakfast BLT Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

The Bacon Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich may be the most quintessential heavenly sandwich food ever invented. Still, I can’t help but tweak my BLT every time I make it. First of all, it needs cheese. Really really good melty cheese. Because, I mean, what could possibly be better than fresh garden tomatoes with melted cheese and […]


Caramelized Onion Mushroom Gouda Soup

Sweet Pepper Pesto Rosso Breakfast Sandwich

Sweet Pepper Pesto Rosso Breakfast Sandwich on Ciabatta with Gouda

on Toasted Ciabatta with Melted Gouda Cheese Today I was HUNGRY and needed something substantial. Something with protein.

Sweet Onion Melted Gouda (SOMG!) BLT

Sweet Onion Melted Gouda Bacon Lettuce & Tomato Sandwich (SOMG BLT!)

This is such an amazing sandwich. It’s really so simple. But it takes the whole concept of Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato to a new level.  All you have to do is add a little bit of sweet onion and some gouda cheese, get that cheese really good and melty and OMG you will be drowning […]


Cheesy Zucchini Chorizo Breakfast Boats

Cheesy Zucchini Chorizo Breakfast Boats

If you haven’t noticed, I have an affection (obsession) for cheese. I have a drawer in my fridge dedicated to cheese. I buy little chunks of flavorful cheeses and use them frequently in my cooking. Some sweet soul at Arla (the maker of Dofino cheeses) noticed my affinity for cheese … and sent me several […]


Zucchini Avocado Quesadilla

Zucchini Avocado Quesadilla

So in case you haven’t noticed, the ingredient of the week (month?) is zucchini at my house.

Green Grilled Cheese Sandwich

A Chef Salad in Stripes

A Chef Salad in Stripes

with Avocado Ranch Salad Dressing I ran across a beautiful vegan cobb salad the other day and it made me think: why don’t I ever do a salad in stripes? My salads are always so random and scattered … couldn’t we try a nice organized salad for a change? Something in nice straight lines. As […]


Smoky Blue Cheese & Basil Stuffed Mushrooms

Smoky Blue Cheese & Basil Stuffed Mushrooms

Mushrooms are curious things. Some mushrooms are healthy and delicious and nutritious … and then other mushrooms are quite dangerous. I have gone mushroom hunting several times. The little shrooms can be quite elusive, and then suddenly you’ll discover a whole field of them. Or not. It’s hard to tell with mushrooms. If you’re going […]


Smoked Gouda Avocado Breakfast Bruschetta

Smoked Gouda Avocado Breakfast Toast

It’s one of those mornings when I can’t get my daughter out of bed. And she’s feeling dizzy this morning, so dizzy she doesn’t want to go to school. I hate it when I have to tell her to go to school when she’s feeling this way. But she’s not sick, and she’s missed too […]
