Spring Crab & Asparagus Dip

Spring Crab & Asparagus Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #crab #asparagus #dip #recipe

I took a break from dips … I don’t know how it happened, or why. Perhaps it was that marathon health kick I went on when I was trying to get skinny. (It worked, by the way! I’m officially back to my ideal weight.) But lately I’ve had the munchies and I looked over my […]


Creamy Cilantro Avocado Jalapeno Dip

Creamy Cilantro Jalapeno Avocado Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #spicy #avocado #dip

This creamy avocado dip has a little heat from the jalapenos. I was aiming to make an avocado salsa, like I’ve had in Mexican restaurants, but it came out thicker, so I decided it’s an avocado dip.

Peach Pecan Pulled Pork Salad with Smoky Chipotle BBQ Ranch Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #salad for #dinner #recipe

A while ago, I made some pulled pork for my kids in the crockpot, so they’d have something a little outside of their normal routine to eat. I’ve been wanting to make a salad with it ever since I made it. I had visions of a BBQ Cobb salad when I walked into the kitchen, […]

One of my yoga sisters had a party after yoga class last week. When someone hosts a party at their house, it’s customary for the rest of us to bring a little something.
