Bacon Asparagus Blue Cheese Tots

Who says eating veggies has to be boring? One of my favorite ways to enjoy veggies is veggie tots. I totally heart veggie tots!!! They are cute and bite-sized and delicious … not to mention healthy. What a perfectly delicious, fun way to fit more vegetables into your diet. The other bit of awesomeness about veggie […]

Zucchini crust recipe is from My Humble Kitchen A simple, but ah-mazing healthy pizza with a zucchini almond crust, shaved asparagus ribbons, sun-dried tomatoes, bacon, mozzarella cheese and basil chiffonade (cut into ribbons).  The crust is completely gluten free, but so flavorful and delicious … and it uses 4 cups of zucchini! I’m so psyched for […]


Chicken Mushroom Pizza w/Spinach Crust

Chicken Mushroom Pizza with Spinach Crust ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #pizza #recipe #quick

Adapted only just slightly from Hungry Girl Super easy, low-calorie, no-guilt pizza for one! The bright green crust reminds me of St Patrick’s Day … and while it’s not like a yeast-y bread crust, it feels enough like pizza to be satisfying. It’s been a long time since I posted a pizza recipe … when […]


Buffalo Blue Cheese Cauliflower Dip

My Wednesday night yoga group had our 5th (or possibly 6th?) annual white elephant yoga Christmas party last week … we all bring a white elephant gift and some good food to share. And wine, of course. There’s always wine. This year there was turmeric tea, too, for our friends who don’t drink. First we do […]


Spinach Lasagna Stuffed Mushrooms

Spinach Lasagna Stuffed Mushrooms ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #lasagna #stuffed #mushrooms #lowcarb #recipe

Mushrooms are such a perfect vessel to hold bits of deliciousness. I am not sure exactly where I saw this idea … it was somewhere in the blogosphere, a brilliant idea from one of the foodie ninjas that I know. Once I saw it, I just HAD to try it, and I was so pleased with […]


Cheese Stuffed Zucchini Herb Meatballs

Cheese Stuffed Zucchini Herb Meatballs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #meatball #recipe

I decided to have a big hurrah to say goodbye to summer … I took Thursday afternoon and Friday off so I could go up to visit my parents before the weekend started, since I had other plans for the rest of the weekend. While I was there, my cousin texted and asked if he […]


Pesto Eggplant Parmesan Grilled Cheese

Pesto Eggplant Parmesan Grilled Cheese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #vegetarian #eggplant #sandwich #recipe

Eggplant Parmesan is a divine dish even for eggplant haters, but it is typically loaded with fat from frying the eggplant and then putting sauce and loads of cheese on top. It takes a bit of work, too, to do all that. This sandwich is superb simplicity. It’s eggplant parmesan without all the work. Even […]


Zoodle Ricotta Pepperoni Pizza

Zucchini Noodle Pepperoni "Pizza" ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #cheesy #veggie #zoodle #recipe

Adapted slightly from The Dinner Mom I am still working on my “eat more veggies” initiative where I’m trying to eat more veggies every day. For a while, I let veggies take over my life, but then I realized I was overdoing it … and in the process, making myself miserable. Yes, it’s good to […]


{Copycat} Schlotzky’s Original Sandwich

Copycat Schlotzky's Original Sandwich Recipe ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

Adapted from Food.com and Texas Cookin’ A looong, long time ago, I made a Shlotzky’s Original Sandwich recipe (making the bread dough in my bread machine) and the result was soooo good, you almost couldn’t tell it was made at home. That was way before I was a food blogger, back before I had kids, […]


Pesto, Shrimp & Kale Grilled Pizza

Pesto Shrimp & Kale Grilled Pizza ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pizza #recipe

We love to grill pizzas in the summertime … my daughter always wants hers to be plain cheese (or sometimes sausage), I like to be more adventurous. So I make them “individual sized” so we can each have our favorite kind. Grilling pizza is really quite easy … the trick is to prep your toppings […]


Caprese Baked Eggs with Toast

Caprese Baked Eggs with Toast ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #caprese #recipe

I was sooo hungry for toast this morning and I didn’t have any bread made. I had to wait for my bread to bake before I could have breakfast … that gave me plenty of time to think about what I wanted to have WITH my toast. The first fresh tomatoes from my little potted […]


Eggplant Parmesan Layer Dip

Eggplant Parmesan Dip

I had a big beautiful purple eggplant that was starting to fade, so I had to find a good use for it fast. I decided to make it into a dip … at first I was going to make some more baba ghanoush, but then I thought perhaps I could make something different with it […]


Peach Berry Prosciutto Pesto Pizza

Peach Berry Prosciutto Pesto Pizza

with Gorgonzola, Mozzarella & Havarti Cheeses My friends told me about this Peach Pizza they’ve been making that they just LOVE … so of course I had to try it. Last night the crazy wind we’ve been having finally died down enough to light up the grill so my daughter and I decided we should […]


Mini Caprese Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Mini Caprese Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

I’ve been eyeing all the beautiful Caprese sandwiches online for so long, waiting for the day when I had a fresh garden tomato to make one. So I have a funny story to tell you. Last fall I had a potted tomato plant that wasn’t finished making tomatoes when the frost came. I brought it […]


Herbed Pepperoni Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Herbed Pepperoni Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Four Cheeses

on Speckled Pepperoni Cheese Bread Every once in a while I get a craving for pepperoni. The thin, thin sliced pepperoni that gets a tad crispy when you put it on top of a pizza? I love that. I don’t like the grease, though, and usually pepperoni pizzas are swimming in grease. I thought pepperoni […]


Eggplant Caprese Parcels

Eggplant Caprese Parcels with Roasted Garlic Balsamic Sauce

with Roasted Garlic Balsamic Sauce It’s one of my favorite times of the year: eggplant season. My mother grows eggplant every year and it never fails she always has way more than she can ever use. I feel it is my duty as her daughter to help relieve her of the burden of some of […]
