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 […]


Better than Rotisserie Crockpot Chicken

Better than Rotisserie Crockpot Chicken ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #crockpot #rotisserie #chicken #recipe

Adapted slightly from Cooking on the Ranch who got the recipe from The Unorthodox Epicure (I am sad that I cannot locate his version of the recipe!) The other day, when Cooking on the Ranch posted this recipe, I immediately wanted to try it. My daughter is a chicken fanatic and rotisserie chicken is something she often requests when […]

Slow Cooker Spiced Pulled Pork in Wine ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pulledpork #crockpot #recipe

I’m doing the food for a food and wine tasting event this week and we decided the theme this month is spring salads. I gave my wine store friend a selection of salads to choose from and one of the salads he chose was my BBQ Pulled Pork Cobb Salad. Good choice! That salad is hearty, full of […]

There is an entire chapter dedicated to some very intriguing spices and Harissa was one of them. I took one look and knew I had to try it. From North Africa, […]

Inspired by Dizzy Busy & Hungry and my own kitchen meanderings Over the 4th of July we visited my sister and her husband who live on a lake in Minnesota.

Baked Eggs Romesco with Kale & Cheese

Baked Eggs Romesco with Kale ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #breakfast #recipe

I made these eggs for my parents last time they visited. I told them before I started breakfast what I was planning to make and they seemed pretty amenable to it. It was an idea that had been floating around in my head, but I just hadn’t made it yet. There was no question in […]

Adapted from Lemony Thyme The secret to an amazing dish is so often a great sauce.  This is one of those “oh my gosh that’s SO good” sauces that you want to lick every drop off the plate. I knew I had to try as soon as I saw it. My foodie friend Lemony Thyme brought […]

Bacon Spinach Beer Cheese Dip

Bacon Spinach Beer Cheese Dip in a Beer Bread Bowl ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dip #recipe

in a Beer Bread Bowl I’m doing another blogger cooking challenge. It’s not like I wouldn’t have made this delicious dip anyway (because I just love hot  & cheesy dips), but without the challenge I don’t know if I would have thought to make a bread bowl to put it in. I really love how […]

Queso Blanco {Mexican White Cheese Dip} ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dip #recipe

I started out to make a spicy white cheese dip and ended up with an almost orangey-colored dip … you will just have to trust me, this is a WHITE cheese dip. There are 4 kinds of white cheese in this dip: Pepper Jack, White Cheddar, Cream cheese, and Mozzarella. When I started stirring it […]


Red Robin Seasoning Copycat Recipe #2

Red Robin Seasoning {Copycat Recipe #2}

I fell in love with Red Robin seasoning when we lived in near proximity to a Red Robin restaurant. They have amazing burgers and chicken sandwiches, their fries are big and wonderfully crunchy on the outside, yet soft and potato-ey on the inside. They have a huge menu of alcoholic concoctions too, but the thing […]


Spiedies {Legendary Italian Marinated Meat Kebabs}

Spiedies: Legendary Italian Meat Kebabs

My Italian friend Linda tells me “the name Spiedies has nothing to do with speed and everything to with the Big Daddy of spiedies which is spiedini, the Italian kebab or skewered and grilled meat.” Spiedies are an upstate New York Italian favorite that really started in the Middle East. When the Middle Eastern conquerors invaded Italy, they brought […]


Low Sodium Red Magic Seasoning

Red Magic Seasoning

I am on a quest for low sodium, but delicious food lately. Food that will appeal to a teenager. I never never never thought I would have to worry much about sodium … my blood pressure is low. My kids, well they’re kids! You don’t have to worry about salt too much with kids, right? […]

Post #3 of 5 in my Five Favorite Things for my Five Thousand Foodie Friends series … #1 was salad. #2 was dip. #3 is BREAD! You might have noticed if you’ve hung around this blog very much that I adore making bread. There’s no better smell in a home than a loaf of fresh […]


Funky Bejeweled Kiwi, Mango & Kumquat Salsa

Pomegranate, Kiwi, Kumquat, & Mango Salsa

I love salsa. The heat of it. The variety. The fun ways you can use it. You can put so many things in a salsa.  I had some tomatoes that were begging me to make them into salsa, but I wanted to do something a little different this time … I’ve heard of mango salsa, […]


Bacon Mushroom Beer Cheese Soup

Bacon Mushroom Beer Cheese Soup

I had the urge to make beer cheese soup the other day … and there was just a bit of bacon sitting there needing to be used, and then while retrieving the garlic, I ran across some mushrooms … so they hopped in the soup too. And then I stumbled across some pumpkin puree in […]

Green Chile Crab Cakes with Smoky Roumelade Sauce

I’m so excited! This is my first Secret Recipe Club (SRC) post! I have been jealously watching other food bloggers’ secret recipe club posts and just dying for my little food blog to become “old enough” to join. You have to have at least 60 posts to join the club. I guess my marathon of […]


Thick & Hearty Curried Pumpkin Black Bean Soup

Thick & Hearty Pumpkin Black Bean Soup

I got in a fight with my teenage son this afternoon … it was, as usual, a very emotionally charged exchange. We were both livid by the time we left the house. I was driving him to his dad’s place and yes, I was angry, but after a moment, I forced myself to calm down […]


Curried Stuffed Summer Squash

Curried Stuffed Summer Squash

My parents came to visit this weekend and with them they brought SO much beautiful bounty from their garden: peppers, onions, potatoes, eggplant, turnips, tomatoes, yellow watermelon, butternut squash. They brought me a jar of salsa that they had made and a box full of canned tomatoes. AND a case of dad’s homemade wine. We […]
