Blueberry Gooseberry Oat Crumble ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls#healthy #breakfast #berry #dessert #recipe

My friend had so many gooseberries on her gooseberry bush last summer that she froze an over-abundance of them and then convinced me that I just HAD to take some home with me.

Wall Flower Fudge {Red Chile Fudge}

Wall Flower Fudge {Red Chile Fudge} ~ she'll leave you wanting more ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spicy #fudge #recipe

You see her from across the room.  She’s a bit plain and unassuming … not like the others in her company.  You think this one will not hurt you so you ask her to dance. The dance starts out slow … just like so many others, but then things change!  She’s a bit spicy and […]

I’ve been on a fudge tangent this year. I decided fudge would be just the thing to make for our Wine & Design event last Friday and in keeping with my normal way of completely overdoing every tangent I embark upon,boy, did I make a LOT of fudge. Peppermint was the number one crowd pleaser, […]


Spinach & Sausage Strata

Spinach & Sausage Strata ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #dinner #recipe

If you have never had a strata, it is the savory cousin to bread pudding. It’s made with stale bread, so if you have old bread about that you don’t want to go to waste, all you need to do is add some sausage, eggs, cheeses and spinach to make a flavorful and easy yet cozy […]

Just a small container […]

After teaching two breakfast cooking classes where we made overnight oat parfaits, I was a little burned out on overnight oats. But I had some chopped plums and freshly grated ginger left from the class and decided I needed to bake them into something warm and cozy with some lovely spices, maple syrup and pecans. A […]

Have you tried marinating your chicken in yogurt before grilling? It’s a super-magical thing that keeps it wonderfully moist and delicious.
