with Chinese orange ginger dressing, toasted almonds and sesame seeds An Asian orange chicken salad with an unexpected twist … shredded Brussel Sprouts step in for the greens!

I made this dressing for a cranberry salad that I made recently … the salad was delicious (and I will blog it sometime soon), but the dressing was so fabulous, I decided it deserves its own post. It’s very simple to make … and the flavors are wonderful together. It goes really well on any […]


White Cheddar Green Pea Salad

White Cheddar Green Pea Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #potluck #salad #recipe

Adapted from The Kitchen is my Playground When I was a little girl growing up in the American midwest, there were potluck parties. Lots of them. And inevitably at a midwest potluck, there are these things people call “salads”, most of them laden with lots of mayonnaise and sometimes even crazy things like pineapple and […]

Salmon grilled on a bed of lemon slices with a creamy tarragon dijon yogurt sauce drizzled over top. What’s not to love about that? I made this one lovely sunny afternoon.

Did you know that April is National Grilled Cheese Month? It is!!! I know I’m weird, but that really makes me happy. I adore grilled cheese sandwiches–both making them and eating them. Toasting the bread to perfection while getting the cheese good and melty is the challenge, and when achieved, the simple grilled cheese sandwich […]


Swiss Cheeseburger Stuffed Mushrooms

Swiss Cheeseburger Stuffed Mushrooms ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #mushroom #swiss #burger #appetizer

Think mushroom swiss burger in bite-size form. These juicy little bites are so pretty and fun to serve and they taste just like mushroom swiss burgers! I mixed some quinoa and spinach into the lean burger meat so they are healthy too. The ketchup, mustard, and onion are mixed into the meat too. We had our Easter […]

Feta Walnut Spinach Salad

Feta Walnut Spinach Salad with Matchstick Carrots and Creamy Dijon Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #savory #winter #salad #recipe

A simple, savory salad with a pleasing blend of tastes, textures and colors. I used my rosemary garlic marinated feta with crunchy walnuts, matchstick carrots and topped it with a creamy Dijon dressing. This salad came about one day when I needed a quick salad and I grabbed what I had and tossed it together and it was […]

Beef Rouladen (German Pickle & Bacon Stuffed Beef Rolls) ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #German #dinner #recipe

German Beef Rolls Stuffed with Mustard, Pickles & Bacon in a Beer Gravy … adapted slightly from Quick German Recipes Who else but the Germans would think of stuffing a roll of meat with mustard, pickles and bacon?

Sweet Potato & Brown Rice Salad #OrangeInspiration

Sweet Potato & Brown Rice Salad ~ Sumptous Spoonfuls #hearty #vegetarian #salad #recipe

Adapted from A Splash of Vanilla I was out and about, searching the Interwebs for hearty, balanced lunchbox type salads for my cooking class, when I stumbled across this one. I stopped dead in my tracks. I am ambivalent about sweet potatoes … I’m really not one of those “oh I just LOVE sweet potatoes” kinda people, but I just […]


Cherry Apple Walnut Chopped Salad

Cherry Apple Walnut Chopped Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #light #winter #salad #recipe

This salad is a light mix of fruity flavors with greens and a maple-licious dijon dressing. The dried cherries add an intensity that contrasts nicely with the crunchy sweet apples. I mixed in some Napa cabbage for the pretty curly leaves and the lovely light green color. Spinach provides the dark green. It’s a great way to use […]


Maple Dijon White Wine Vinaigrette

Maple Dijon White Wine Vinaigrette ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #salad #dressing #recipe

For the past couple months, I took a break from salads. I don’t know why … perhaps it’s the weather. I normally love salads and eat them all the time, even right through winter. But this year I kept buying salad greens, but never used them. Then last week, I finally got around to making […]


Tomato Basil & Gouda Breakfast Sandwich

Tomato Basil & Smoked Gouda Breakfast Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #breakfast #sandwich #recipe

I have just a few fresh garden tomatoes left (the last from the plants I brought inside when it started freezing at night) and I want to put these last little garden treasures to good use. The other day I made myself a cheesy bruschetta, which is always good, and this morning I was craving something […]

Maple Dijon Chicken Salad Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #LowFat #Chicken #Sandwich # recipe

with almonds & sriracha … on toast with avocado slices I had a bit of leftover chicken in my fridge and wanted to do something a little different with it.

Delightfully Dilly Egg Salad Sandwiches

Perfectly Dilly Egg Salad Sandwiches ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

Adapted from a beautiful recipe by my sweet friend Melissa at ChinDeep. It’s an egg salad sandwich that’s full of flavor instead of fat. What a concept, right? Greek yogurt comes into play to add creaminess & protein without adding fat. Fresh herbs are the finishing touch. It’s a little early here for fresh dill so […]


Salmon & Asparagus Salad Sandwich

Salmon & Asparagus Salad Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

Instead of tuna salad sandwiches, try using salmon for a change! It just tastes better. To make these sandwiches even healthier, I used Greek yogurt in place of most of the mayo. It works beautifully. You can use any kind of cooked salmon for this … or even canned salmon works. I made this recipe […]
