Summer Garden Curry Baked Eggs

Summer Garden Curry Baked Eggs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #garden #tomato #spicy #curry #breakfast #recipe

It’s harvest season … a time of year I absolutely love. I personally don’t have much of a garden (other than the massive container garden on my patio which is mostly flowers and herbs this year), mostly because I find myself too busy to tend to it and partly because I live in a forest. […]


Baharat Beef with Zucchini

Baharat Beef with Zucchini ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #groundbeef #recipe

Adapted from Kalyn’s Kitchen My little garden is producing mint like mad and I’ve been looking for fun new ways to enjoy it. This marvelous Mediterranean dish is one of my recent discoveries that I found on my search for good uses for mint.  It’s spicy, but in a warm, pleasant sort of way. It’s super-flavorful from the […]

Peppy's Pita Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Pita #Bread #Recipe #Breadmachine

Adapted from AllRecipes.com Puffy part-whole wheat, homemade pitas that split nicely in two if you cut them open. Easy to make and so good for easy lunches and suppers!

Meaty Moussaka Stew with Cheesy Croutons

Meaty Moussaka Stew with Cheesy Croutons ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Greek #Moussaka #Stew #Recipe

I’ve already made Moussaka this year with some of the fresh garden produce. This year, for the first time ever, my teenage daughter actually tried it — and ate every last bit of it, too! I was surprised, because she’s never been quite so daring culinarily, but she looked at me and said, “Mom … […]


Black Bean Baba Ghanoush

Black Bean Baba Ghanoush ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Mediterranean #dip #recipe

A smoky middle eastern dip that tastes a bit like hummus. It has that garlicky tahini flavor, with a tart twist from fresh lemons, but it’s typically made with eggplant. I like baba ghanoush in its pure form, but I wanted to create something that was more of a blend between hummus and baba ghanoush. […]
