Spicy Devil Creole Shrimp Dip

It’s a shrimp dip with that creole bayou twist! I made this dip for our “dip day” at work … they supplied the chips, we were supposed to bring the dips. We had lots of wonderful dips. I truly loved them all … but I have to say, this one was still my favorite. There’s […]


Buffalo Chicken & Broccoli Grilled Cheese

Buffalo Chicken & Broccoli Grilled Cheese Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quick #spicy #GrilledCheese #sandwich #recipe

Does it ever happen to you that you get so busy doing ridiculous things like hosting a virtual party on facebook or editing photos or perusing Pinterest or running your kids to their various appointments that you forget to do something really basic like feeding yourself? Yeah, that happens to me more than I’d like […]


Crab, Mushroom & Asparagus Frittata

Crab, Mushroom & Asparagus Frittata ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #gourmet #breakfast #recipe

with Havarti and MontAmoré cheese We traveled this weekend and I came home to asparagus and mushrooms in my refrigerator that, in our rush to get ready, I’d neglected to cook before the trip. We also happen to have some leftover crab legs in our fridge from our last seafood outing when my daughter and I (who […]


Havarti Chive Potato Puff

Havarti Chive Potato Puff ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #potato #recipe

I had some leftover mashed potatoes in my fridge. I love when that happens; in fact, I have been known to make lots of extra potatoes just so I could have leftovers. So these leftovers were very intentional. I originally had plans to turn them into shepherd’s pie, but somehow never had enough time or […]


The Mighty Denver Breakfast Sandwich

The Mighty Denver Breakfast Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Breakfast #Recipe

Think Denver omelet in a sandwich, kicked up a notch in flavor with some marvelously melty Havarti cheese, a slice of juicy red garden tomato and a good schmear of smoky Roasted Red Pepper Cashew Cream Sauce. When I heard that the awesome Swedish Pancake Pan from Swiss Diamond was on its way to my house, […]


Turkey Tomato Roasted Red Pepper Sandwich

Turkey Tomato Roasted Red Pepper Sandwich with Havarti Cheese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

with Havarti Cheese and Mixed Greens I wish I could think of a shorter name for this sandwich … I pondered it long and hard and eventually I just gave up. It’s just got too many good things inside it! The Smoky Red Pepper Cashew Cream Sauce is the star, the flavor burst that makes […]


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 […]


Broccoli Cauli Cheese Soup

Broccoli Cauli Cheese Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

The thick, creamy texture of this broccoli cheese soup may trick your tongue into believing you are eating something that’s rich and full of cream. The magic is that it’s NOT! The thick, creamy texture comes from blended cauliflower, while the pretty orange color comes from carrots. Yes, there is cheese in the soup, but […]


Creamy Havarti Cabbage Soup with Cheddar Croutons

Creamy Havarti Cabbage Soup with Cheddar Croutons ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

It is the first day of spring and I keep waiting for spring-like weather, but spring seems to be dragging her feet this year. We are still having wintry weather, the forecast calls for more snow and cold and wind, and everything outside (including the sky) is gray or brown or white. Total soup weather! […]


Baked Eggs in Asparagus Sweet Onion Nests

Baked Eggs in Asparagus Sweet Onion Nests ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #eggs #breakfast #recipe

with Gorgonzola & Havarti cheeses and fresh Thyme A lovely savory breakfast with baked eggs, asparagus and cheese. What’s more comforting in the morning than a baked egg? Add some toast and you are set for the morning. I’m re-blogging this one because it got lost in the shuffle when I moved my blog to […]


Pesto Pepper Havarti Bacon Panino

Pesto Pepper Bacon Havarti Panino ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

I baked a loaf of french bread today that turned out delicious, but a little flattened because I let it “rise” for too long. (We took too long shopping I guess!) It still tastes wonderful … so I decided it would make a good sandwich, Panino style, cut sideways and stuffed. I spread the bread […]


Herbed Pepper Havarti Egg in a Hole with Bacon

Herbed Havarti & Sweet Pepper Egg in a Hole with Bacon

What’s better for a rainy Sunday breakfast than homemade bread perfectly toasted, a runny egg, melted Havarti cheese, with fresh vegies and herbs and a bit of bacon to top it off? It’s a lazy, rainy Sunday morning (rain, in January? … odd but true). I tried to convince my kids to go out for […]


Havarti Mushroom Breakfast Sandwich

Mushroom Havarti Breakfast Sandwich

Juicy mushrooms sauteed with Bruschetta seasoning, garlic and wine, folded into an egg with Havarti cheese melted over top, served on a toasted English muffin. It was Saturday morning. I love to get up on Saturdays and go to yoga class. It makes my Saturdays a little extra crazy, but it’s a good workout and […]


Light & Luscious Savory Pumpkin Cheese Sauce

Light & Luscious Savory Pumpkin Cheese Sauce

Here’s a cooking magic trick you can use to create a wonderful thick, rich cheese sauce that tastes amazing but is still very healthy and nutritious. There are three basic concepts to this light & luscious cheese sauce: Use flour, a bit of butter and low fat milk to make a basic low fat white […]


Havarti Kale Tomato Pie with Hashbrown Crust

Havarti Kale Tomato Pie with Hashbrown Crust

A savory quiche with a crunchy homemade hashbrown crust, filled with kale, whole cherry tomatoes, havarti cheese and a bit of crispy smoked bacon. The idea for this “pie” has been floating around in my head for several days, waiting for me to take time to make it. Saturdays are always crazy for us and […]


Havarti Cheddar Kale Omelet with Bacon

Havarti Cheddar Kale Omelet with Bacon

I made my girlfriends these omelets when they were visiting and they all declared these were the best omelets they had ever eaten. One of my friends had never had kale before and she was really surprised to find she liked it. I was really pleased they liked the omelets since I didn’t ask them […]


Baba Crostini

Baba Crostini

This is a super simple, but super fun and delicious recipe. You can make this up as a big sandwich if you like too, using a bun or a ciabatta roll instead of the toasts. I did that for lunch one day with ciabatta and totally loved it. I was originally going to post this […]


Smoked Havarti Cheese Stuffed Mini Tomatoes

Smoked Havarti Stuffed Mini Tomatoes

My dad decided to try a different variety of tomatoes … some that would mature earlier so he would have tomatoes earlier on in the season … great idea, but this summer has been so hot that his “early” tomatoes only ripened about a week before the rest of the tomatoes. These little tomatoes are […]


Hummus Havarti Harvest Pizza

Hummus Havarti Harvest Pizza

I woke up early this morning. There is a chill in the air. It is cool enough to open the windows and to sit on the patio and have a cup of tea. The fresh air smells so wonderful after the stale air conditioned air I’ve been breathing all summer. There are tomatoes on my […]


Onion Double Garlic Prosciutto Cream Noodles

Garlic Prosciutto Cream Noodles with Roasted Tomatoes, Two Cheeses & Fresh Basil

with Roasted Tomatoes, Two Cheeses & Fresh Basil Yikes! I’m caught up a double alphabet challenge! One on facebook that is a daily A-Z health challenge … and then there’s this monthly “Eating the Alphabet” challenge that I just started last month and I really don’t want to miss out on this month since I […]


Happiness & a Mushroom Tomato Skillet Frittata

Smoky Mushroom & Tomato Skillet Frittata

Last night my facebook page zoomed past 10,000 “likes” when I wasn’t looking. I was out having a glass of wine with my friend, talking out all the things we needed to talk about, sharing things we probably wouldn’t ever tell anyone else. How did it zoom by without me so quickly? I think it’s […]


Herbed Baked Eggs in a Bread “Bowl” with Avocado

Herbed Baked Egg in a Bun with Avocado, 2 Cheeses & Balsamic Sundried Tomato Ketchup

topped with Havarti and Gorgonzola cheese & a Balsamic Sundried Tomato “Ketchup” It wasn’t very long ago I saw this great idea for baking eggs in a bread bowl … just hollow out some hard rolls, crack your egg in there, add some seasonings and voila! A beautiful breakfast. But you know me, I couldn’t […]


Hotsy Totsy Summer Shrimp Dip

Hotsy Totsy Summer Shrimp Dip

Calling this a shrimp dip is a little misleading because it’s got SO much more than shrimp in it … there’s bacon, and asparagus, and grilled corn cut off the cob, sweet onion, Havarti, Gorgonzola and cream cheese, greek yogurt, some seasonings of course… and then, to give it a little summer heat, some Sriracha […]


Peach Berry Prosciutto Pesto Pizza

Peach Berry Prosciutto Pesto Pizza

with Gorgonzola, Mozzarella & Havarti Cheeses My friends told me about this Peach Pizza they’ve been making that they just LOVE … so of course I had to try it. Last night the crazy wind we’ve been having finally died down enough to light up the grill so my daughter and I decided we should […]
