Spinach Cornbread Stuffing

spinach-cornbread-stuffing

People always ask me what we eat for Christmas dinner … it usually involves ham or turkey … or sometimes, if we’re lucky, a Christmas goose. This year we were blessed to have a Christmas goose, a Canadian goose that one of my brother-in-law’s friends got on a recent hunting trip. Apparently it was quite […]


Ski Resort Gingerbread House

Ski Resort Gingerbread House ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls step-by-step #gingerbread #house

Gingerbread recipe from Food.com There was a gingerbread house competition at work last week. Our boss asked for volunteers to create a house to represent our team and of course I raised my hand (… or, more accurately, I responded to her email). I didn’t know who else signed up until the initial meeting … […]


Thanksgiving Stuffed Mushrooms

Thanksgiving Stuffed Mushrooms  ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Thanksgiving #Leftovers #Recipe

Well another Thanksgiving has passed us by … only one of my sisters came to my parents’ place this year. My sisters aren’t speaking to each other right now, so I guess I only get to see one at a time. I wish they would make peace … I have only heard one side, but […]


Bacon Chocolate Chipotle Popcorn

Bacon Chocolate Chipotle Popcorn ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sweet #spicy #popcorn #gift #recipe

  This popcorn is so simple and such a simple gift to make for your friends and family this holiday season! My boyfriend is responsible for this post … I asked him if he likes popcorn (because I frickin’ LOVE popcorn) and, much to my dismay, he said he isn’t a big popcorn fan … but […]


Chocolate Chipotle Pecan Pie

Chocolate Chipotle Pecan Pie ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #decadent #pecan #pie #recipe

Adapted from Martha Stewart A rich, sweet, decadent pecan pie with a hint of chipotle to make it dance on your tongue. There is just enough spice to add a little depth of flavor. It’s Thanksgiving morning and we had pie for breakfast. We always have pie for breakfast on the holidays. My mom says that […]


Holiday Apple Pomegranate Sangria

Holiday Apple Pomegranate Sangria ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #holiday #cocktail #wine #recipe

Sangria is an adult beverage I’ve come to appreciate more and more ever since my friend Ann at The Fountain Avenue Kitchen posted her recipe for classic Spanish sangria. Since then I’ve made many variations of Sangria, both white and red versions, each one with its own special twist. This year I wanted to make […]

Dark chocolate, red wine, dried cranberries, and cream cheese join together to make this special holiday treat. Perfect for a holiday dessert table or holiday gift, these lovely truffles will delight the chocolate lovers in your life. In the recipe I included instructions both for the molded chocolates as shown and for the more common […]


Cherry Pistachio Irish Cream Fudge

Cherry Pistachio Irish Cream Fudge ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #white #fudge #recipe

Adapted just slightly from The Two Bite Club A simple, but oh-so-decadent white chocolate fudge with Irish cream, chunks of chewy dried cherries and crunchy roasted pistachios tucked within. Fudge is one of those things my dad used to make for us in the wintertime when we were little. He made a simple chocolate fudge, […]


Jack’s Cranberry Eggnog French Toast Bake

Jack's Cranberry Eggnog French Toast Bake ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #holiday #breakfast #recipe

Breakfasts at Christmastime often get neglected in the rush of stocking stuffers, present-opening, and preparing the Christmas feast, so I wanted to create an easy recipe to get the day started in the holiday spirit. Full of holiday flavors, a splash of Jack Daniels whiskey (if you so desire) for an extra festive morning and […]


Rosemary Butternut Soup with Goat Cheese

Rosemary Butternut Soup with Goat Cheese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

It always floors me when something simple like this turns out to taste soooo good. I made this soup with some leftover rosemary roasted squash we made when in the process of creating the Butternut Bacon Macaroni & Cheese. I was so pleased at how wonderful this soup turned out: it has a soft, silky texture, […]


Chocolate Peppermint Pretzel Munch Mix

Chocolate Peppermint Pretzel Munch ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chocolate #peppermint #pretzel #recipe

Those of you who knew me last year at Christmas-time might remember this one. I made it for the team at the office last year, and transported it all the way to California for the company meeting in my suitcase. This year it’ll be much easier to transport. I have a new job at a […]


Chocolate Mocha Amaretto Balls for our Troops

Chocolate Mocha Amaretto Balls

Yesterday I got a message on my Sumptuous Spoonfuls facebook page from a friend of a friend of mine. She has been sending cookies to our troops in Afghanistan and this year they asked for 178 dozen cookies/treats … she was feeling a little overwhelmed and was looking for some help! 178 dozen cookies is […]
