Roasted Pears with Maple Nut Mascarpone Filling ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #light #dessert #recipe

Do you ever walk into the grocery store and find yourself smitten with some piece of fruit you see in the entrance? This was one of those times. I walked in … and there were these gorgeous pears … I was intrigued, and then drawn, and then … I just had to have them. I […]


Healthy Pumpkin Ginger Soup with Sriracha

Healthy Pumpkin Ginger Soup with Sriracha ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

Creamy, smooth, lightly sweet (but not TOO sweet) pumpkin soup with a bit of a kick … what more could you want in a soup? For me, I want it to be healthy too. I know, I know, it’s not “pumpkin season” … but who says we have to have a “season” for pumpkin? It’s […]

Maple Orange Spice Cranberry Sauce

Maple Orange Spice Cranberry Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cranberry #recipe

Inspired by Shockingly Delicious’ Hall of Fame Cranberry Sauce I don’t know why I decided to stray from my favorite cranberry sauce (or even why I am making cranberry sauce because I’m the only one in the family who likes it), but I just LOVE cranberries! I didn’t use to even like cranberry sauce until […]


Maple Apple Cranberry Bread Pudding

Maple Apple Cranberry Bread Pudding ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert #recipe

  I didn’t originally intend to blog this recipe, but my coworkers all loved this bread pudding so much. They said I should DEFINITELY blog it, so I relented. It’s such a simple recipe to put together. I threw it together right away when I got up, went and took my shower and got the […]


Triple Chocolate Pumpkin Pecan Granola

Triple Chocolate Pumpkin Pecan Granola ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #granola #recipe

Chocolatey nutty goodness with an undertone of pumpkin spice that is just wonderful. Plus, (especially if you use dark chocolate), it’s good for you. What could be better than that? I know that there are those of you that will think “why on earth would I bother to make granola when I could just pick […]


Maple Amaretto Pumpkin Butter

Maple Amaretto Pumpkin Butter ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pumpkin #recipe

Adapted from Citronlimette and The Hungry Belgian It’s starting to feel like autumn here finally … some years I’m kicking and screaming, not wanting to let go of summer, but this year, for some reason, I’m welcoming fall with open arms. The evening chill feels good, I’m happy to pull out my “keep my feet […]

If you’ve never had grilled peaches before, you are in for a treat. This super-simple method for preparing grilled peaches and pineapple (and other fruit) elevates a simple fruit to fabulous dessert status. It doesn’t take long either … if you’re grilling dinner anyway, you can toss the fruit on at the end of the […]


Grilled Honey Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken

Grilled Honey Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chicken #recipe

Do you ever get tired of making the same old same old on the grill? Yeah, that was me the other night. I wanted to grill something a little different, but then again, not TOO far from normal so my daughter would still eat it. I decided it was time for some grilled fruit with […]


Mulberry Maple Rose Italian Cream Sodas

Mulberry Maple Rose Cream Sodas ~ Sumptuous Spoonfus #summer #drink #recipe

After we made those Strawberry Rose Cream Sodas, I went and improved on the recipe … this time I used mulberries, with the rest of my roses (hey, they were there!) and then I added a touch of maple syrup. Oh goodness these were good. My daughter loved them even more than the strawberry rose […]


Maple Spice Greek Yogurt & Fruit Parfait

Maple Spice Greek Yogurt Fruit Parfait ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #parfait #recipe

This was a Saturday morning pre-yoga breakfast. Typically on Saturday mornings, I wake up, start my facebook party, make myself a cup of chai and then I spend altogether too much time looking at yummy foods. In a last-minute panic, I usually throw some frozen fruit & yogurt into the blender, pour it into a […]


Chicken Mango Avocado Salad

Chicken Mango Avocado Salad with Rosemary Maple Yogurt Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #salad #recipe

with Rosemary Maple Yogurt Dressing & Toasted Pinons Sometimes when I’m at yoga and I’m doing the “listening to your body” part, I hear my body screaming for certain foods. Tonight my body was screaming for chicken … partly because our power yoga class was particularly challenging this evening and partly because I hadn’t eaten […]


Pumpkin Chai Apricot Granola … & Interval Training

Pumpkin Chai Granola with Apricots ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chai #granola #recipe

I’ve discovered a secret … okay, it’s not a great epiphany or anything, but I’ve found a way to motivate myself to exercise on the weekends when I’d much rather relax, cook a lot of wonderful tasting things, hang out with my foodie friends (in person and/or online) and drink tea and wine. See, here’s […]


Strawberry Peach Pecan Baked Oatmeal Crumble

Strawberry Peach Pecan Baked Oatmeal Crumble ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #baked #peach #oatmeal #recipe

This baked oatmeal crumble is almost like a peach crisp with pecans, but with a bit more substance. Sweet, fruity, and delicious enough to be eaten for dessert, but hearty and healthy enough to eat for breakfast. Ice cream is wonderful with it, but if you want a healthier breakfast option, try topping it with […]


Snowdrift Vanilla Porter Beer Nuts

Snowdrift Vanilla Porter Beer Nuts ~ from Sumptuous Spoonfuls #beer #nuts #recipe

Adapted from Beer Magazine Caramelized vanilla porter, maple syrup, brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice combine to make these sweet salty peanuts more than a little addictive. Make sure to snack on these the next time you are drinking a deep, dark porter. If you’re going to be sitting around drinking beer for the Superbowl, you […]


Kumquat Maple Pecan Oatmeal

Kumquat Maple Pecan Oatmeal ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #kumquat #oatmeal #recipe #quick

Sweet maple oatmeal with a bright citrus marmalade-ish tang and the light crunch of pecans. Candied kumquats add the perfect touch of sunshine to warm, comforting oatmeal. Here’s a brilliant use for those Brandied Candied Ginger Kumquats … put them in your oatmeal! The little slightly chewy bits of bright orange citrus flavor are so […]


Pumpkin Gingersnap Chocolate Chip Granola

Pumpkin Gingersnap Chocolate Chip Granola

Sweet crunchy homemade granola with intermingling tastes of pumpkin, gingersnap cookies, and chocolate, inspired by Simply Gourmet’s Gingerbread Granola. I’m travelling today with my daughter who is supposed to be at a dance workshop all day, but instead she is here in the hotel feeling yucky and dizzy, so I’m pondering what to do for her […]


Cantaloupe Maple Mango Smoothie

Cantaloupe Maple Smoothie for the Pitta Dosha

Last week my yoga teacher, Sean, asked me if I would be willing to make some recipes for a Pitta. He is a Pitta and he says the Pitta cookbooks he has found are all Indian cookbooks and he’d really like some recipes that are more like the ones he grew up on here in […]


Apple Crisp for my Girl {Low Sugar}

Apple Crisp for One {Low Sugar}

We are on a mission to cut sugar from my daughter’s diet, per instructions from her doctor. We have hopes that this will help cure her dizziness problem. I feel so bad for the poor girl … she lived through Halloween without eating even a single piece of Halloween candy (meanwhile her brother was polishing […]


Apple Cranberry White Chocolate Oat Crumble

Apple Cranberry White Chocolate Oat Crumble

This oatmeal crumble is packed full of apples, cranberries, and heart healthy oatmeal, but TASTES like a decadent fruity dessert. It’s a lovely warm fruity crumble with a crunchy topping and a fruity sauce on the bottom. It makes for a quite healthy breakfast (or dessert for that matter!) because it’s full of fruit, fiber, and […]


Pumpkin Maple Cranberry Protein Smoothie

Pumpkin Maple Cranberry Protein Smoothie

I’m really getting into smoothies lately. I think it’s Linda’s fault. She has this Smoothie Tuesday party on her facebook page Project Healthy Ever After every Tuesday and I want to have something good to bring! Once upon a time I was a bartender at a Mexican restaurant, so we made lots of margaritas and […]


Apple Pie Wontons {Baked ~ Low Sugar}

Apple Pie Wontons {Baked ~ Low Sugar}

If you have an apple, a few spices and some wonton wrappers, you can make these simple little apple pie wontons in about 30 minutes. I created these for my daughter … she loves apple pie, but her doctor told her to cut out sugar from her diet, so I thought I would try making […]


Whipped Pumpkin Maple Mascarpone Cream Cheese

Whipped Pumpkin Maple Mascarpone Cream Cheese

It is hard for me to fathom that something that is so simple to make could be so amazingly wonderful. You can literally make up this light, fluffy spread in a matter of 10 minutes and it blows away any bagel shop’s idea of a pumpkin spice shmear. I have actually blogged this spread before, […]


Maple Spice Pumpkin Cranberry Granola

Maple Spice Pumpkin Granola ~ www.SumptuousSpoonfuls.com

  Eeek! I’m so excited! I did it … I finally got my own domain, my own home for my blog. I’ve been researching, thinking, dreaming of what I could do if I only had a REAL site of my own. Today I took the plunge and just did it. It really wasn’t as hard […]
