Smoky Broccoli Beer Cheese Soup

Smoky Broccoli Beer Cheese Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #broccoli #beer #cheese #soup #recipe

. A beautiful creamy beer cheese soup with lovely chunks of broccoli and a nice hint of smoke from smoked paprika and chipotle.

Bacon Chipotle Butternut Soup

Bacon Chipotle Butternut Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #savory #squash #soup #recipe

A creamy butternut squash soup that balances the sweetness of the squash with the salty smokiness of bacon, shredded Gruyere cheese, fresh sage and a bit of chipotle pepper to make it dance on your tongue.

Creamy Creole Chicken Zoodles ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Cajun #Creole #Chicken #Recipe

Adapted from Texanerin Baking You know those rich, decadent cajun cream fettuccine dishes that they serve at Italian restaurants? This dish tastes JUST like that. The sauce is super creamy and rich … and somehow with the amazingly rich cajun cream sauce on top, the zucchini noodles actually trick the tongue into believing they are real noodles. The […]

I was gifted some kale from my sister’s garden … and I just dreamed of making a sausage, potato, & kale soup … I said this to one of my friends and they said … “oh, you mean Zuppa Toscana, like Olive Garden?” … uh, yeah. I hadn’t thought of that, somehow (I very rarely go […]

A melty cheesy pie made with zucchini, bacon, onion, garlic and eggs. Enjoy it for breakfast, or brunch, or dinner, or anytime!

Piña Colada Bread Pudding Cupcakes

Piña Colada Bread Pudding Cupcakes ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pineapple #coconut #breadpudding #recipe

This is where bread pudding and Piña Coladas collide … in a beautiful, little cupcake form. This recipe was born when I had too many Hawaiian buns left after the summer bash at Little Cellar Wine Company / Coffea last month. The buns turned slightly hard after a bit, so my kids wouldn’t eat them, but they still […]


Strawberry Rhubarb Bread Pudding Cups

Strawberry Rhubarb Bread Pudding Cups ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert for #breakfast #muffins

A long, long time ago, I asked a friend what she wanted me to make her as a treat for her birthday. She said she wanted bread pudding, but not a fancy bread pudding, she wanted a plain bread pudding. She was very specific about this. “What?” I said … “I can’t add any fruit? […]

Irish Seafood Chowder

Irish Seafood Chowder ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Irish #Seafood #Soup #Stew #Recipe

On my quest to find more Irish dishes besides the corned beef and cabbage gig, I pondered what else would the Irish make? Well, there is a LOT of ocean around Ireland, so they must have seafood, yes? I googled Irish Seafood and a small school of Irish Seafood Chowder recipes surfaced. That made me smile. I […]

Bacon Cheddar Chipotle Potato Soup

Bacon Cheddar Chipotle Potato Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesy #spicy #smoky #potato #soup #recipe

Creamy, cheesy potato soup with the spicy smoky zing of chipotle peppers and a bit of bacon to add to the smokiness. I made it gluten free by using tapioca flour for the thickener, but you can use regular flour if you don’t have a sensitivity to gluten. I made this soup for a little […]

Strawberry Rhubarb Baked Oatmeal

Strawberry Rhubarb Baked Oatmeal ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #strawberry #rhubarb #breakfast #dessert #recipe

I love everything rhubarb, but still my first taste of rhubarb every year surprises me as I immediately sink into a puddle of rhubarb love.

Sriracha Ranch Yogurt Dressing

Sriracha Ranch Yogurt Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #light #healthy #spicy #creamy #salad #dressing #dip

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, […]
