Pumpkin Maple Amaretto Trifle

Pumpkin Maple Amaretto Trifle ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #pumpkin #dessert #recipe

A whipped cream lover’s delight … layers of pumpkin maple amaretto infused mascarpone cheese with angel food cake squares and amaretto whipped cream. I’ve made this trifle twice now … once for my friend at work who recently had a birthday, but I didn’t photograph it that day, so I HAD to make it again. […]


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 […]


Cranberry Apple Pear Oat Crumble

Cranberry Apple Pear Oat Crumble ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fruity #baked #oatmeal #recipe

It has been so dang COLD here lately, so I decided I need to make myself something nice and warm and cozy for breakfast. Have I mentioned before that I love eating dessert for breakfast? Well, I do, especially since I found out that eating dessert for breakfast can help you lose weight — and keep […]

Holiday spices and maple syrup in a zesty orange cranberry sauce that cooks in just 5 minutes in the microwave. It’s so easy to make, and soooo much better than those canned sauces. It’s almost time for my monthly cooking class at work and this month I’m focusing on stress-free Thanksgiving recipes. I have no cooktop […]


Maple Bacon Green Beans Almondine

Maple Bacon Green Beans Almondine ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sidedish #greenbeans #recipe

Adapted just slightly from Menu Musings I was talking to my sister on the phone not too long ago and she asked me if I wanted some green beans. Sure, I said, not thinking to much about it. Fresh garden produce is always a good thing, right? That conversation happened before my girl went to […]


Cucumber Watermelon Feta Rubik’s Salad

Cucumber Watermelon Feta Rubik's Cube Salad with Maple Ginger Champagne Vinaigrette ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #watermelon #RubiksCube #puzzle #salad

with a Maple Ginger Champagne Vinaigrette My life is not orderly. It is altogether messy and frantic, panicked and worrisome at times, yet also peaceful and quiet. I find peace in the quiet beauty of our forest and flowers, laughter and ease with my friends at the yoga studio, comfort in the routine, scents and […]


Roasted Pears with Maple Nut Mascarpone

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 […]


Maple Dijon Cranberry Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Maple Dijon Chicken Salad Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #LowFat #Chicken #Sandwich # recipe

with almonds & sriracha … on toast with avocado slices I had a bit of leftover chicken in my fridge and wanted to do something a little different with it. I’ve been rather smitten with the Maple Dijon combination ever since I made that Spicy Maple Dijon dipping sauce for my meatball kebabs, so I […]

Pineapple Bacon Meatball Kebabs with Spicy Maple Dijon Dipping Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #grilled #meat #recipe

with Spicy Maple Dijon Dipping Sauce After months of sub-zero temps and biting wind chills, the temperature FINALLY warmed up to 60 last weekend. It felt SO wonderful to get outside, I just had to fire up the grill. I had a plan: I was going to make Billionaire Burgers. You’ve heard of Billionaire meatloaf, […]


Maple Spice Pumpkin Latte {with Skinny Options}

Maple Spice Pumpkin Latte ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #coffee #recipe

(no espresso maker required) This morning I went to yoga on an empty stomach. Very bad idea. Normally if I do this, I can’t even make it through yoga class, but thanks to all the extra food I ate this week, I didn’t have any trouble making it through yoga. The trouble I had was […]


Berry Good Purple Cow Ice Cream Float

Homemade Purple Cow Ice Cream Float ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #drink #recipe

This idea dawned on me when we were out at the folk music festival and the “root beer guy” was there, selling root beer, root beer floats, orange and grape soda and of course Purple Cow Ice Cream Floats! I’ve been making Italian cream sodas for years … don’t know why it never occurred to […]

Transformations & Pumpkin Amaretto Bread Pudding

Amaretto Pumpkin Bread Pudding

Pumpkin bread pudding laced with Amaretto, maple syrup, pecans and all the wonderful spices of fall. Bread pudding is so warm, wonderful and inviting at this time of year. I love it, partly because my mother used to make it for us when we were kids … but also because it is transformational. Bread pudding transforms […]
