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 […]


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. […]


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. […]


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 […]


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 […]


Ginger Plum Breakfast Parfait

Ginger Plum Overnight Oatmeal Breakfast Parfaits ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #makeahead #breakfast #recipe

My stomach needs time to “wake up” in the morning before I eat, so for me I need an easy option to bring with me to work that I can eat while I’m working. I get bored with the same old same old breakfast routine so I need to switch it up a bit every […]


Light Rhubarb Pecan Streusel Loaf

Light Rhubarb Pecan Streusel Loaf ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #wholegrain #lowfat #rhubarb #bread #recipe

Adapted slightly from Portland Press Herald I asked my mom to bring me rhubarb … so she brought me rhubarb. My mom brought SO much rhubarb that, even after I’ve made several rhubarb recipes, there is a large sack of rhubarb still taking up most of the top shelf of my refrigerator. One of the […]


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 […]


Nutty Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

Nutty Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #rhubarb #dessert #recipe

I went to visit my parents last weekend. It was very different from most of my visits because usually the house is full of people. My sisters and there husbands and all the kids are usually there. This time it was just me. My teenagers decided to stay home. My sisters were all home. It […]


Triple Chocolate Pumpkin Pecan Granola

Chocolatey nutty goodness with an undertone of pumpkin spice that is just wonderful. Plus, (especially if you use dark chocolate), it’s good for you. What could be better than that? I know that there are those of you that will think “why on earth would I bother to make granola when I could just pick […]


Gluten Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars

Gluten Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert #recipe

Adapted slightly from Hungry Healthy Girl I was craving something pumpkin and chocolate and so I sat down at my computer to do some searching to see if I could find “just the right thing” to make. I didn’t set out to make something gluten free, but when I chanced upon  this recipe from  Hungry Healthy […]


Lemon Cardamon Pear Crisp

Lemon Cardamom Pear Crisp ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert #recipe

I hope you’re not tired of pear recipes yet, because I still have a couple beauties I want to share with you.  I tried browning the butter for this crisp and I liked the taste of it, but it does change the texture of the topping. If you want your crisp to be more like […]


Lilac Rhubarb Crisp for Two

Lilac Rhubarb Crisp for Two ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #rhubarb #recipe

Sweet crunchy oat & brown sugar topping over tart cooked rhubarb with a light lemony floral hint from lilac blossoms baked into the crisp. Sprinkle with more lilac flowers for a pretty presentation (if you like). I remember as a little girl, I used to lie under the lilac tree, pick blossoms from the tree, […]


Berry Rhubarb Baked Oatmeal Crumble

Adapted from Nutmegs, seven. I’m re-posting this recipe because it got scrambled in the blog move. 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 […]


Extra Super Fudgy Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

Super Fudgy Peanut Butter Swirl Chocolate Brownies ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fudge #brownie #recipe

Adapted just slightly from Sally’s Baking Addiction I need to warn you … that “super fudgy” bit in the title … it’s not so much a description; it’s more of a warning. Be hereby forewarned: have your milk or coffee or tea or whatever you like to drink with your brownies ready, nearby and waiting […]


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. I did one with rhubarb and mulberries, and one with strawberries and peaches, one with bananas and chocolate. You can switch out the fruits and […]


Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #cookie #recipe

oh, and banana too! … Adapted from Baking Bites My kids and I went to my parents’ house last weekend to join the rest of the crowd for Easter … the first thing my nephew said to me was “can we bake some cookies?” It was just about dinnertime when we got there though, and […]


Pumpkin Chai Apricot Granola … & Interval Training

Pumpkin Chai Granola with Apricots ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chai #granola #recipe

I’ve discovered a secret … okay, it’s not a great epiphany or anything, but I’ve found a way to motivate myself to exercise on the weekends when I’d much rather relax, cook a lot of wonderful tasting things, hang out with my foodie friends (in person and/or online) and drink tea and wine. See, here’s […]


Ooey Gooey Oreo Toffee 7-Layer Bars

Ooey Gooey Oreo Toffee 7 Layer Bars ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #oreo #toffee #recipe

I DO usually try to stay fairly healthy in the kitchen, but this recipe is an exception. I’ve seen quite a few 7-Layer bar recipes popping up around the internet foodie circles lately and it made me think of that huge bag of Oreo cookie crumbs I have here … hmmm, wouldn’t Oreos make a […]


Strawberry Peach Pecan Baked Oatmeal Crumble

Strawberry Peach Pecan Baked Oatmeal Crumble ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #baked #peach #oatmeal #recipe

This baked oatmeal crumble is almost like a peach crisp with pecans, but with a bit more substance. Sweet, fruity, and delicious enough to be eaten for dessert, but hearty and healthy enough to eat for breakfast. Ice cream is wonderful with it, but if you want a healthier breakfast option, try topping it with […]


Kumquat Cranberry Pecan Granola

Kumquat Cranberry Pecan Granola

A crunchy sweet granola with a bit of citrus zing from the kumquats and the tart-sweet chewy taste of craisins. Usually when I make granola, I use some sort of fruit puree in it (like applesauce and one time I used strawberry sauce). I have an abundance of kumquats this winter, though, and I couldn’t […]


Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Crumble Bars

Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Crumble Bars

Adapted from Cookies! A Cookie Lover’s Collection from Creative Publishing International It’s been a crazy week at work … oh when isn’t it a crazy week?
