Bacon Chipotle Butternut Soup

Bacon Chipotle Butternut Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #savory #squash #soup #recipe

A creamy butternut squash soup that balances the sweetness of the squash with the salty smokiness of bacon, shredded Gruyere cheese, fresh sage and a bit of chipotle pepper to make it dance on your tongue. My friend had given me some butternut squash and my mom had some beautiful sage still growing in her garden at […]


Zucchini Chanterelle Brown Rice Risotto

A creamy, nutty, comforting risotto that is much easier to make than traditional risotto … the rice is baked in the oven, rather than cooked on the stovetop with constant stirring like traditional risotto. This risotto is finished with about 5 minutes of stirring stovetop,  which brings out the starches from the rice and makes that […]

Ham & Asparagus Breakfast QUinoa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesy #breakfast #quinoa #egg #recipe

Cheesy goodness, the nutty quinoa goes so perfectly with the roasted asparagus and salty ham. Add an egg with that delightful runny yolk and it’s breakfast heaven (if you ask me). The asparagus is almost done and I don’t want it to go … I know, I could still buy some from the store, but […]

Bacon Mushroom Beer Cheese Soup

Bacon Mushroom Beer Cheese Soup

I had the urge to make beer cheese soup the other day … and there was just a bit of bacon sitting there needing to be used, and then while retrieving the garlic, I ran across some mushrooms … so they hopped in the soup too. And then I stumbled across some pumpkin puree in […]


Sweet Hot Habanero Ham & Gruyere Sandwich

Sweet Hot Habanero Mustard Ham & Gruyere Sandwich

My friends and family take such good care of me. The other night after yoga, we went out for a glass of wine and my friend says to me “I have something for you.” … I got really excited because she KNOWS me well. It was a little jar of habanero jelly. Someone had given […]
