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 […]


Zoodles with Parmesan Mushroom Meatballs

Zoodles with Vegetarian Parmesan Mushroom Meatballs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #meatless #meatballs #recipe

Adapted slightly from Cooktoria A healthy, delicious meatless dish made from mushrooms, zucchini (ok, I used yellow squash), and a bit of cheese and breadcrumbs that is surprisingly convincing at masquerading as the “real” thing. Meatballs made of mushrooms? Yes, I went there. Yes, if you pay close attention, you will be able to tell there really […]

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 […]


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. […]

Apple Cherry Rhubarb Crisp

Apple Cherry Rhubarb Crisp with Toasted Pecans ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #delightful #dessert #recipe

There is a funny story behind this recipe … I was sharing rhubarb recipes on my facebook page one Saturday at my Sumptuous Saturday party and, as usual, whenever you talk rhubarb with foodies, there were a plethora of strawberry rhubarb recipes. After several of these in a row, one adorable fan commented, saying something […]


Peanut Butter Parfait Baked Oatmeal

Peanut Butter Parfait Baked Oatmeal ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #baked #oatmeal #recipe Tastes just like a DQ Peanut Buster Parfait (made healthier)!!

Those of you whose favorite treat at the Dairy Queen is the Peanut Buster Parfait, raise your hand! I am right there with you. I’m hopelessly, shamelessly, entirely addicted to Peanut Buster Parfaits. I try to avoid the temptation as much as possible, but every once in a while, it happens. I must have one. […]


Strawberry Rhubarb Baked Oatmeal

Strawberry Rhubarb Baked Oatmeal ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #strawberry #rhubarb #breakfast #dessert #recipe

I love everything rhubarb, but still my first taste of rhubarb every year surprises me as I immediately sink into a puddle of rhubarb love. Especially when paired with strawberries and pecans and oats, I could eat nothing but this all day long and there would be a silly grin on my face the whole time. […]


Strawberry Banana Pecan Baked Oatmeal

Strawberry Banana Pecan Baked Oatmeal ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #sweet #glutenfree #breakfast #recipe

I had a bunch of strawberries in my fridge and a few over-ripe bananas on my counter, so I decided to put them to good use and make me (and my friends) some good breakfast. It turned out just as I had thought it would. Warm, comforting, fruity, with just the right amount of crunch from the […]


Protein Power Chocolate Banana Oatmeal

Protein Power Chocolate Banana Oatmeal ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fast #breakfast #recipe

Super Quick Power Oatmeal! I love a bowl of good oatmeal for breakfast, especially when it is quick and easy and healthy–and decadent. I was travelling last weekend and needing a good breakfast. My host had some over-ripe bananas on hand and quick oats … and I discovered some healthy chocolate shake powder too. I didn’t […]


Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal

Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #carrotcake #dessertforbreakfast #healthy #breakfast #recipe

Adapted from A Mindfull Mom At work this year, they started a new Nutrition program. The first quarter we had to keep track of what we ate for a week. This quarter, they upped the requirements–you have to track your food and water intake for 3 weeks and change one meal per day. I looked […]


Banana Maple Nut Oatmeal

Banana Maple Nut Oatmeal ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fast #simple #hot #healthy #breakfast #recipe

When you’ve got only a few minutes to cook or you just want something quick and hot for breakfast, there’s nothing quite like a nice bowl of steamy oatmeal. This one is especially good if you have over-ripe bananas on your counter that really need to be used in some fashion and you just don’t have […]

with toasted walnuts & maple syrup … adapted from Pumpkin ‘n Spice Once I tried that Peanut Butter Chocolate Baked Oatmeal, every baked oatmeal recipe that crossed my path had me wondering .. is this as good as that was?

Peanut Butter Chocolate Baked Oatmeal

Peanut Butter Chocolate Baked Oatmeal ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cookie #bakedoatmeal #breakfast #recipe

Adapted only just very slightly from Lauren Kelly, Nutritionist This baked oatmeal is like a giant oatmeal cookie laced with peanut butter and chocolate. What could be better, or more comforting, for breakfast? My friend Lauren Kelly and I (and about a zillion other people) share a mutual love. We’re both head-over-heels in love with anything peanut butter […]


Blueberry Gooseberry Oat Crumble

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. I relented without too much coaxing because I do love gooseberries. I discovered if you mix them with blueberries they compliment each […]

Ginger Spice Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pumpkin #oat #spice #cookies #recipe

Adapted from Chow I know, I know, it’s not October! But I found a container of pumpkin in my freezer and it needed to be used and I just felt like making my pumpkin into cookies. It’s been so chilly and dreary and wintry lately and we are all just itching for spring … I love the […]


Vanilla Coconut Snacking Granola

Vanilla Coconut Snacking Granola ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #coconutoil #healthy #natural #lowsugar #homemade #granola #recipe

My yoga friend Sue went to Mexico last month. When she came back, all she could talk about was this wonderful granola that she had in Mexico … she brought back several jars of it and told us how she and her husband would munch on it like snack mix. It’s not sweet, she said, as […]


Oatmeal Fudge Bars

Oatmeal Fudge Bars ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chocolate #oatmeal #decadent #dessert #recipe

Adapted just slightly from High Heels & Grills I have encountered these amazing fudgy oatmeal bars at parties and gatherings a few times in my life.

Honey Almond Blueberry Oatmeal ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #quick #hot #blueberry #breakfast #recipe

So last weekend I was contemplating what to do with these fresh blueberries I bought at the store and also dying for a healthy breakfast before I headed to the gym to work out.

Cranberry Apple Pear Oat Crumble ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fruity #baked #oatmeal #recipe

It has been so dang COLD here lately, so I decided I need to make myself something nice and warm and cozy for breakfast. Have I mentioned before that I love eating dessert for breakfast?

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 […]


Ginger Apple Plum Oat Crumble

Ginger Apple Plum Oat Crumble ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fruity #baked #oatmeal #recipe

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 […]
