with Bailey’s cream cheese frosting … recipe adapted from King Arthur Flour and Family Fresh Meals I made these cupcakes for a yoga sleepover party that we’re having tonight, by request from the hostess, who posted the recipe from King Arthur Flour on facebook and asked me to make them for her. And because she’s a […]


Bailey’s Cheesecake Swirl Brownies #Choctoberfest

Bailey's Cheesecake Swirl Brownies ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Choctoberfest #brownie #recipe with Imperial Sugar

I’m so glad that #Choctoberfest is here! I’ve not made anything chocolate for quite a while and I’m not even sure why … chocolate is one of my favorite things in the whole world and it SO deserves a regular appearance in my kitchen. If you haven’t entered the #Choctoberfest giveaway, what are you waiting […]


Mixed Berry Bread Pudding

Mixed Berry Bread Pudding ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #berry #dessert #recipe

with Drunken Limoncello Berry Sauce I have been on a de-cluttering mission lately, so I cleaned out my freezer in my fridge yesterday. I discovered that I had several partially used containers of frozen berries as well as some freezer jam that we’d totally forgotten about. I decided those precious berries and jam needed to be used up right […]


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, […]


St. Brendan’s Irish Cream Chai

Irish Cream Chai ~ Sumptuous Spoonfus #Hot #Tea #Cocktail

Do you ever wake up on a weekend morning, stumble into the kitchen for your morning beverage and discover that there is no milk in the house? If milk is not a requirement for your morning drink, then it’s not a big deal I suppose, but if you DO want milk and you happen to […]


Mint Chip Irish Cream Ice Cream

Mint Chip Irish Cream Ice Cream ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthier #Irish #dessert #recipe

This recipe is an interesting balance of decadent and healthy ingredients to make a delightfully creamy mint ice cream laced with Irish cream liqueur and little bits of minted chocolate that’s perfect for St. Patrick’s Day (or any day when you want a little mint chocolate ice cream). Really I never know where I’ll end […]


Chocolate Mocha Date Bars

Chocolate Mocha Date Bars

These date bars are like your childhood favorites … all grown up. With underlying hints of chocolate, coffee … and Kahlua. And a bit of Nutella in there, too, just for fun. This recipe reminds me of my baby sister. She was the one who just loved date bars when we were growing up. Mom […]


Light & Luscious Mocha Nutella Mousse

Light & Luscious Mocha Nutella Mousse

It’s National Chocolate Mousse Day today, so of course I had to make some chocolate mousse! I lightened it up by using nonfat Greek yogurt and an egg white in place of the heavy cream, but it still tastes deliciously decadent, with deep dark undertones of Kahlua and hazelnut. Light & Luscious Mocha Nutella Mousse […]


Basil-Infused Strawberry Peach Sangria

Strawberry Peach Sangria with Peach Basil Syrup

I suddenly had the urge to make some peach sangria yesterday and we were headed to my friend’s house for dinner. It seemed like the perfect thing to bring to go with our barbecue on an unseasonably warm spring night. We had chile lime burgers and chicken drumsticks, salad, strawberries and sangria on the patio. […]


Chocolate Dipped Cranberry Apricot Energy Balls

Chocolate Dipped Cranberry Apricot Energy Balls

The idea for these has been floating around in my head for weeks … I wanted to make a little ball of goodness that would be great for quick energy on the go, something with protein and fruit and a few carbs so it would give my body lots of the things it needs before […]


Cranberry Lime Vodka

Cranberry Lime Vodka

This recipe is so easy, you can make it in your sleep. Well, at least I hope you sleep while it’s “cooking”! It takes a week or two, so you still have time to make it for Christmas if you have someone that loves cranberries and vodka. (Adapted from Fancy Napkin) This is all you […]


Mocha Cream Liqueur Slimmed Down

Sorta Skinny Mocha Cream Liqueur (Homemade Bailey's)

A creamy dreamy, rich and sweet coffee cream liqueur without all the fat of the heavy cream that’s in Bailey’s and those “store bought” cream liqueurs. Not quite Bailey’s, but oh so good just the same. A very nice nightcap or little something to slip into your coffee. Did you make the homemade coffee liqueur […]


Making your own Coffee Liqueur (Kahlua)

Homemade Coffee Liqueur

“Coffee smells like freshly ground heaven.”  ~Jessi Lane Adams Do you love coffee? I do. I love the smell of it … remember it even as a child, I loved the smell of my dad’s coffee. So yes, I also love coffee liqueur. And I always like the idea of making things that you normally […]
