There’s an annual event that several of my yoga friends and I do together once or twice a year. We call it “Wine & Design” and it involves, yes, wine, but also lots of local artists … and they convinced me years ago that I needed to do the food. The first year my food […]

A mix of two favorites! Ranch dressing joins barbecue sauce to make a smoky, flavor-filled taste sensation. Made light with nonfat Greek yogurt so it’s healthy enough to serve or enjoy anytime.

I’m sooo excited that it is finally asparagus season! My mom and dad came down for my daughter’s choir concert and brought me a bag of asparagus. I am in heaven. I so look forward to this season every year because I absolutely love asparagus, but I have not found a way to preserve it […]

I adore a good salad, especially a salad that has lots of flavor. One day when I was out to dinner with my kids, I spotted a “modern taco salad” on the menu, made with shredded pork and served with Sriracha Ranch dressing. I just HAD to taste that Sriracha Ranch … it was so good, […]

Adapted slightly from Baked by Rachel  To go with our perfect Easter ham this year, I made this yummy garlicky pull-apart bread.

It’s Superbowl Sunday today … I’m not watching the Superbowl because I’m not a big football fan, but I totally LOVE all the superbowl food. Instead of watching the big game, though, I’m trying out induction cooking, mostly because I want to be able to actually COOK at my monthly cooking classes at work, where we […]


Maple Dijon White Wine Vinaigrette

Maple Dijon White Wine Vinaigrette ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #salad #dressing #recipe

For the past couple months, I took a break from salads. I don’t know why … perhaps it’s the weather. I normally love salads and eat them all the time, even right through winter. But this year I kept buying salad greens, but never used them. Then last week, I finally got around to making […]

Grilled Italian Garlic Asparagus ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #grilled #asparagus #recipe

Last week when I fired up the grill to make sausage kabobs, I decided to cook up some asparagus on the grill too. (Above is the picture I took BEFORE I sealed it up and threw it on the grill.) So I did one of my favorite grill tricks: I made a packet of veggies […]


Italian Garlic Sausage & Potato Kabobs

Italian Garlic Sausage Potato Kabobs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sausage #kabob #grilled #bbq #recipe

with zucchini & bell pepper This is simply a German meal on a stick. With Italian Seasoning. Made in America. I have seen the idea of using sausages in kabobs and I thought it was ingenious.

Garlic Greek Yogurt Chicken Kebabs

Garlic Greek Yogurt Chicken Kabobs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #grilled #chicken #recipe

Have you tried marinating your chicken in yogurt before grilling? It’s a super-magical thing that keeps it wonderfully moist and delicious. I decided to kick up my yogurt marinade with flavor this time … I added loads of garlic and Sundried tomato pesto (Pesto Rosso). This makes a lot of marinade, but I didn’t actually […]

Silvia’s Italian Focaccia

Silvia's Italian Focaccia

Last night Silvia’s Cucina shared a beautiful authentic Italian focaccia and it made me soooo hungry for focaccia that I went in the kitchen and made it right away. I already had focaccia on my mind after Sherron’s amazing caramelized onion & garlic focaccia and was dying for some good homemade bread after our travels. I was […]


Wild Mushroom Grilled Pizza

Wild Mushroom Grilled Pizza

The last time I grilled pizza, I decided to do a simple wild mushroom ‘za. Just cuz I had some wild shrooms from my wonderful dad. Have I mentioned how much he spoils me? I am so so very lucky … The mushrooms were fantastic, but really the best part about this pizza was the […]


Rosemary Tomato Focaccia

Tomato & Rosemary Focaccia

I have always wanted to make one of those funky flat focaccia breads with the tomatoes baked right into the top. So today I just did. It is lovely to have a wedge of this with your soup at lunchtime (like I did today). And you can make a killer turkey sandwich on focaccia like […]
