Lemon Grilled Salmon w/Rosemary Garlic Veggies

Lemon Grilled Salmon with Mixed Grilled Veggies ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #delicious #lowcal #glutenfree #dinner #recipe

I love salmon. It’s so quick to make, so healthy and soooo delicious. Preparing it on the grill is super fast and easy–you just make a little “plank” for it out of lemon slices and not only do you get that wonderful smoky taste, it’s also infused with the lively taste of lemon. To accompany […]

Fire Roasted Mixed Herb Baba Ganoush ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #garlic #tahini Middle Eastern #dip #recipe

The first time I “met” Baba Ganoush was at a party with my sister (who is, by the way, a fabulous and very adventurous cook). She introduces me to SOooooo many new things that I have never thought or heard of.  She was raving about this wonderful Middle Eastern dip that her friends were serving, […]


Grilled Eggplant Parmesan

Grilled Eggplant Parmesan ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #eggplant #parmesan #recipe

The first time I tasted Eggplant Parmesan, it was a game-changer for me. It was many years ago … a friend had invited us over for dinner and we didn’t really know when she invited us that she was vegetarian and we never suspected she would serve eggplant. (We were definitely in the “eggplant hater” […]


Pesto, Shrimp & Kale Grilled Pizza

Pesto Shrimp & Kale Grilled Pizza ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pizza #recipe

We love to grill pizzas in the summertime … my daughter always wants hers to be plain cheese (or sometimes sausage), I like to be more adventurous. So I make them “individual sized” so we can each have our favorite kind. Grilling pizza is really quite easy … the trick is to prep your toppings […]

Pesto Grilled Fish Tacos with Avocado Pico de Gallo ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fish #taco #recipe

I became a big fan of fish tacos when I lived in California. It sounded strange to me at first, but once I tried them, I was totally hooked. Now whenever I am faced with fish leftovers, I make some fish tacos. They are so easy, quick and such a nice twist on fish. This […]


Havarti, Cheddar & Chive Pesto Grilled Cheese

Havarti & Chive Pesto Grilled Cheese Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #gourmet #grilled #cheese

There was a very good reason I wanted to make that chive pesto so badly … this grilled cheese sandwich was calling to me. Once my friend had mentioned such an amazing idea, it wasn’t about to be abandoned, abolished or forgotten. Making the pesto was just the pre-cursor to the sandwich … I dug […]

Apple Grilled Walleye with Smoky Pineapple Salsa

Apple Grilled Walleye with Smoky Pineapple Salsa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fish #recipe

Grilling walleye and other tender fish can be tricky because they are so delicate. They tend to fall apart easily, so you can’t really set them directly on the grill, and there’s a danger of the fish drying out. This fish is grilled on a bed of apple “planks”, which protects the tender fish from […]

Fire-Roasted 7-Bean Crockpot Chili

A smoky tasting meat chili with fire roasted tomatoes, bell peppers, serranos and the rich depth of seven different beans.

Fire roasting tomatoes and other vegetables is a great way to add a new dimension of smoky flavor to salsas, soups, dips and sauces and it’s quite easy to do. Someone asked me how you fire roast tomatoes, so I thought I would do a quick post to show how I do it. I’ve got […]

Crunchy’s Cornbread on the Grill

Crunchy's Cornbread on the Grill

It was terribly windy yesterday, but my daughter wanted chicken cooked on the grill, and how could I possibly say no to that? We don’t get many evenings when we can stay home and grill. I asked her what she wanted with her chicken and gave her a couple options. When I mentioned the cornbread, […]


Chile Brown Sugar Salmon on the Grill

I made this as a low sodium entree for my daughter … before we found out she can and SHOULD have salt. Whew.  That’s a relief. But when I asked my foodie friends if they still wanted low-sodium recipes, the resounding answer was YES. This is a tasty dish that you can make entirely without […]

Thai-Style Barbecued Chicken Salad

Thai Style Barbecue Chicken Salad

Even as I was eating my Thai Chicken Pizza the other night, I began dreaming of this salad. The flavors on that pizza were just screaming to be thrown over some pretty greens and doused in that amazing Spicy Thai Peanut Sauce. Add some pineapple, a bit of celery, and some chopped peanuts and ooh […]
