Apple Pie Smoothie ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #apple #pie #smoothie

Adapted from binging with babish.  ~ Youtube.com/bgfilms A healthy apple smoothie that seriously tastes like apple pie! Happy 4th of July my dear friends. I thought I would bring you the most patriotic thing I could find in my foodie backlog for this special occasion … I mean, what’s more American than apple pie? I came across […]


Blueberry Rhubarb Crisp

Blueberry Rhubarb Crisp ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #blueberry #rhubarb #dessert #recipe

Rhubarb and blueberries are beautiful companions. I just discovered this. I don’t know why I didn’t think of it earlier. Last summer I went all crazy on everything strawberry rhubarb, but in all my years of cooking, I never thought to pair blueberries with rhubarb. Perhaps it’s because of the overabundance of strawberries I see in the […]

This is my third recipe for #Choctoberfest and I’m super excited to share it with you! Thanks to Hurricane Matthew, shipments of Imperial Sugar were delayed, but I finally received mine, along with an adorable apron and a silicon mat that I know I will use a LOT! (Incidentally, I think that’s included in the […]

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? […]


Lavender Rhubarb Cobbler Cake

Lavender Rhubarb Cobbler Cake ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #rhubarb #lavender #cobbler #dessert #recipe

I first made this lovely “fruit-on-top” cobbler with strawberries. It was such a fun time … my little niece helped “plippity plop” the strawberries on top. Then I had to try it with other fruits. Then I made one with plums from my dad’s (very proliferous) plum tree. And this year, I thought I need to make one […]

Mom’s Royal Rhubarb Crisp

Mom's Royal Rhubarb Crisp ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #rhubarb #dessert #recipe

It’s May 1 and next weekend is Mother’s Day! So today I am thinking of my mom and how very very lucky I am to have such a wonderful woman as my mother. Throughout my life, my mom always encouraged me to be anything I wanted to be … she was always my confidante, someone I knew would always […]


Chocolate Peanut Butter Breakfast Bars

Adapted slightly from Food Faith Fitness Oh dear foodie friends, I did it! After 4 months, I am within 1 lb. of my weight-loss goal. Some people might say I should wait to celebrate until I’m there, but (a couple pounds ago) one of my friends looked at me like it’s time to stop … I said I […]


Creamy Cauli Potato Soup

Creamy Cauli Potato Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #cauliflower #potato #soup #recipe

Over the holidays, I participated in a Project Zero challenge. The challenge was not to gain any weight over the holidays. I totally stressed over it … I didn’t have a scale at home and the one at the gym at work disappeared so I had no way to see how I was doing! I […]


German Onion Soup {Zwiebelsuppe}

German Onion Soup {Zwiebelsuppe} ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #German #onion #soup #recipe

The blonde cousin of French Onion Soup, this German Onion Soup (or Zwiebelsuppe as they would say in Germany) uses chicken or vegetable broth rather than beef broth and the subtle flavors of nutmeg and thyme to provide a touch of intrigue. Topped as most onion soups are with toasted bread and melty white cheese, this soup is […]


Apricot Date Nut Baked Oatmeal

Apricot Date Nut Baked Oatmeal ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #apricot #breakfast #recipe

I am not done yet with apricots! There is still a little box full of them in my fridge and I am dreaming up even more ways to enjoy them. If you know my fascination with baked oatmeals, you would know I really just HAD to try apricots in a baked oatmeal. Apricots intensify when baked. […]


Eggnog Toffee Squares

Eggnog Toffee Squares ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #shortbread #toffee #eggnog #dessert #recipe

Adapted just very slightly from Baking in a Tornado These delightful little squares are like toffee with a soft shortbread cookie crust, and it doesn’t stick to your teeth like toffee sometimes does. They would go well with a cup of hot chai or coffee or even a glass of holiday eggnog. Every Saturday I have a virtual party […]


Maple Spice Apple Crisp

Maple Spice Apple Crisp ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #lowsugar #apple #crisp

My yoga friend’s apple tree had a plentiful year. For weeks she brought us buckets full of apples, with special bags for us to bring a bunch of apples home with us. I filled up a couple bags of apples and brought them home … I did use a few of the apples, but most of […]


Mediterranean Beef Stuffed Squash

Mediterranean Beef Stuffed Summer Squash ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #stuffed #summer #squash #recipe

Stuffed squash with Greek-spiced meat, tomatoes, onions, peppers, breadcrumbs and a melted Italian blend of cheeses on top. It’s a bit like that marvelous Greek dish Moussaka, but stuffed into a summer squash rather than a layered eggplant dish. I have to apologize ahead of time because I didn’t write down the ingredients as I was […]


Honey Apricot Mango Granola Bars

Honey Apricot Mango Granola Bars ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #homemade #granola #bars #recipe

   Not long ago I got a message from Sabrina asking me if I’d like to try a recipe for Cinnamon Breakfast Squares with Yogurt and Berries  made with Honey Bunches of Oats Morning Energy Cinnamon Crunch. She offered to send me some of the cereal and I said sure, why not? So a few days later […]

Adapted just slightly from my dear friend Ann at The Fountain Avenue Kitchen Did I tell you about my friend’s pear tree? While we were at the lake last weekend, the kids and I noticed this pear tree that was just LOADED with pears right at the edge of my friend’s yard. We thought oh it […]


Twisted Apple Braid

Twisted Apple Braid ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #apple #recipe

I love to do cooking projects with my nieces and nephews whenever I see them. They are just the cutest little kitchen helpers! My 4-year-old niece especially loves to hang out in the kitchen with me (she also loves to do yoga poses … a girl after my own heart) and she sticks around through […]


Maple Spice Greek Yogurt & Fruit Parfait

Maple Spice Greek Yogurt Fruit Parfait ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #parfait #recipe

This was a Saturday morning pre-yoga breakfast. Typically on Saturday mornings, I wake up, start my facebook party, make myself a cup of chai and then I spend altogether too much time looking at yummy foods. In a last-minute panic, I usually throw some frozen fruit & yogurt into the blender, pour it into a […]


Morning Glory Muffins

Morning Glory Muffins ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #muffin #recipe

Adapted from King Arthur Flour Sweet muffins packed with all sorts of healthy goodness! Carrots, apple, raisins, nuts and sunflower seeds, whole wheat flour, and then topped with toasted coconut. I wanted to make these to take with me on my trip last week, but it didn’t get done. I had put the raisins in […]


Strawberry Rhubarb Yogurt Cake

with strawberry rhubarb rum sauce A lower-fat cake made with yogurt in place of some of the fat and laced with strawberry, rhubarb, nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger. Top it with vanilla ice cream and strawberry rhubarb rum sauce. It’s a dessert that just screams summer. The strawberry rhubarb rum sauce is my sister’s “fault”  … […]


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 […]


Chocolate Covered Strawberry Breakfast Bake

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Breakfast Bake ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #breakfast #recipe

Adapted from Gourmatine Blog Strawberries and chocolate baked up in a sweet breakfast bake filled with healthy oats and sweetened with honey and cinnamon. I’ve made similar breakfast bakes before.

Adapted from A Pretty Life in the Suburbs Fluffy, hearty pancakes with all the spices and flavors of carrot cake, drizzled with a sweet honey cream cheese “syrup”. We went up to my parents’ house to spend a day with “the crowd” for pre-Easter … my dad looked at me this morning and asked what […]
