Very Berry Ice Cream Float

Very Berry Ice Cream Float ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #icecream #float #recipe

July is National Ice Cream Month. Normally, I’m not a “drink my calories” kinda gal, but every once in a while, you gotta give in and have a summer treat, especially when we’re right in the middle of National Ice Cream Month and the temperatures outside are soaring. We’ve been very lucky this summer. Temperatures have […]

Mixed Berry Dessert Nachos

Mixed Berry Dessert Nachos ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #redwhite&blue #easy #dessert #recipe

I am doing a Mexican cooking class today at work. Cooking is not my job, but I do these for fun for my coworkers, once a month (or so), at lunchtime. The company reimburses me for the cost of the food. It’s a lot of work and I don’t get paid for it, but I […]


Mango Chicken Mulberry Salad

Mango Chicken Mulberry Salad with Mango Lavender Key Lime Yogurt Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dinner #salad #recipe

With Mango Lavender Key Lime Yogurt Dressing I bought a mango a while ago, dreaming of a mango chicken salad. At the time I bought the mango, I had intended to make it with strawberries, but then the mulberries started and I just HAD to use them on my salad. I went out with my […]


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 […]

Mulberry Maple Oatmeal Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #bread #recipe

with honey berry cheese spread My beautiful mulberry tree made the biggest, juiciest, blackest, most gorgeous and delicious berries ever this year! I picked 2 1/2 big ice cream pails full of berries before it even slowed down and was absolutely reveling in all the wonderful berries. I had berries in my yogurt, berries in […]


Lemon Berry Sherbet

Lemon Berry Sherbet ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sherbet #recipe

I got this recipe from my sister. Leave it to my sister to find the perfect sherbet recipe. She has the best recipes. I could never seem to find the right mix of ingredients for sherbet. When we went to visit my parents a couple weekends ago, they had just made strawberry sherbet with fresh […]


Secret Garden Romance Cocktail

Lemon Berry Romance Cocktail ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #drink #recipe

It feels too hot this evening to eat, but a nice Friday night cocktail sounds like just the thing. If you were going to have a secret garden romance, this is the beverage to sip on with your lover. The sweet scent of roses, the taste of berries with a kiss of lemon, what could […]

Mulberry Maple Rose Cream Sodas ~ Sumptuous Spoonfus #summer #drink #recipe

After we made those Strawberry Rose Cream Sodas, I went and improved on the recipe … this time I used mulberries, with the rest of my roses (hey, they were there!) and then I added a touch of maple syrup. Oh goodness these were good. My daughter loved them even more than the strawberry rose […]

Double Berry Rose Muffins

Double Berry Rose Muffins ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #muffin #recipe

I knew I wanted to make something special with the “strawberry rose sauce” I was left with after making the Strawberry Rose Italian Cream Sodas. I woke up the next morning and had this craving for muffins, so I decided to make some. For a recipe, I started with my favorite banana bread recipe and […]


Fresh Lemon Berry Yogurt Cake

Fresh Lemon Berry Yogurt Cake ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cake #recipe

Adapted just slightly from Manila Spoon. When I saw Manila Spoon’s beautiful strawberry cake, I immediately wanted to make it. The morning that I saw the recipe, it just so happened that I needed to stop at the store and the store I had stopped at just happened to be having a sale on strawberries. So […]

Mulberry Rhubarb Baked Oatmeal Crumble

Mulberry Rhubarb Baked Oatmeal Crumble

Is this baked oatmeal breakfast or dessert? I styled it like a dessert, with a pouf of whipped cream on top because it TASTES like a decadent fruity dessert, a lovely warm fruity crumble with a crunchy topping and a fruity sauce on the bottom. But really (if you skip the whipped cream) it is […]


Very Berry Italian Cream Sodas

Mulberry, Sausage and Couscous Salad

I am sooooo excited! It’s mulberry season! I have this beautiful beautiful mulberry tree in my back yard … well, really, there are several in my yard, but the one that grows over my pond is the most prolific. I was worried she wouldn’t make any berries this year because it was a very unusually […]
