West African Peanut Stew

West African Peanut Stew ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spicy #vegetarian #stew #recipe

I ran across this stew when Cotter Crunch posted hers … and it immediately struck me as something I just HAD to try! I pinned it on my “Recipes I Want to Try” board and vowed to make it sometime soon. Well, then last month I did an event where I served soups and sandwiches. […]


Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #zucchini #bread #recipe

My mother has been trying new flavors of zucchini bread … she told me the most popular flavor she’s made lately is the peanut butter one. She makes hers with peanut butter chips … my mom is not a big fan of chocolate, but she does like peanut butter. Mom didn’t give me a recipe, […]


Chocolate Peanut Butter Breakfast Bars

Chocolate Peanut Butter Breakfast Bars ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #PB #oats #breakfast #chocolate #recipe

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 […]


Pretty Peanut Butter Cup Truffles

Pretty Peanut Butter Cup Truffles ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #homemade #peanutbutter #truffles #recipe

Sometimes when someone tastes something I’ve made and makes a comment, it sticks in my mind forever. So it was with this recipe… I remember one of my friends coming up to me and saying, “Oh my gosh, Ann, these truffles are like Reese’s peanut butter cups … on steroids!” I can’t help but think of that […]


Peanut Butter Cookie S’Mores

Peanut Butter Cookie S'Mores ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cookie #smore #recipe

I’ve seen these cookie S’Mores making their way across the interwebs and decided that my kids and I just HAD to try them. My son was not on board with this idea (he prefers to eat his cookies and marshmallows and chocolate UN-toasted), but my daughter and her friend were totally up for it, so […]

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.

Homemade Hoisin Sauce

Homemade Hoisin Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #Asian #Hoisin #sauce #recipe

Hoisin sauce is a thick, pungent sauce commonly used in Chinese cuisine as a glaze for meat, an addition to stir fries, or as dipping sauce. It is darkly coloured in appearance and both sweet and salty in taste. If you find yourself needing Hoisin sauce for a recipe, but have none on hand, this […]

Shrimp, Pork & Chicken Egg Rolls

Shrimp, Chicken & Pork Egg Rolls ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Asian #Eggroll #Recipe

So there’s this thing that happens in my house every year around St. Patrick’s Day and it has to do with cabbage. I love corned beef and cabbage and my kids love corned beef, but they aren’t so crazy about cabbage. I love cabbage, but I have a hard time eating a whole head of […]


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 […]


Peanut Butter Apricot Bars {No Bake}

Peanut Butter Apricot Bars ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chocolate #pb&j #light #dessert #recipe

I finally relented … I went into the kitchen fully to make Lauren Kelly’s lightened up peanut butter chocolate bars, but my apricots started talking to me. I was minding my own business, trying to follow the recipe as best I could (sans the sucanat, of which I have none) and the (partly-eaten) bag of dried apricots […]


Peanut Butter Cup Fudge

Peanut Butter Cup Fudge ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #chocolate #peanutbutter #microwave #fudge #recipe

Continuing with my series on (definitely not healthy but oh so delightful) fudge for holiday treats and gifts this year, since I have a total addiction to peanut butter and chocolate together, I absolutely HAD to make a peanut butter cup fudge. This fudge features a rich and creamy chocolate layer with a layer of peanut […]


Cilantro Coconut Curry Sauce

Cilantro Coconut Curry Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #thai #curry #sauce #recipe

A delicious Thai-style curry sauce with a sweet coconut base, Sriracha, ginger, cilantro, lime, Thai red curry paste and jalapeno. It’s a new twist on that amazing Thai peanut sauce I love so much. I used this sauce for my Watermelon Coconut Curry. The sauce is sooooo scrumptious and so simple to make, I think […]


Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding

Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert #recipe

Do you ever have a bunch of banana bread or muffins that just didn’t get eaten and they start to get stale so nobody wants to eat them, but they’re still good, so you don’t want to throw them away? This is what happened to me. I had made a couple loaves of banana bread […]


Healthy Pumpkin Ginger Soup with Sriracha

Healthy Pumpkin Ginger Soup with Sriracha ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

Creamy, smooth, lightly sweet (but not TOO sweet) pumpkin soup with a bit of a kick … what more could you want in a soup? For me, I want it to be healthy too. I know, I know, it’s not “pumpkin season” … but who says we have to have a “season” for pumpkin? It’s […]


Muddy Buddy Truffles

Muddy Buddy Truffles ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #puppy chow #truffles #recipe

At the holidays, my kitchen seems to get filled with bowls of things … crushed candy canes, melted chocolate, powdered sugar. This year, there was an additional “something” in my kitchen that my daughter brought home from school one day: muddy buddies. People around here commonly refer to it as “puppy chow”. It’s that addictive […]

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 […]


Double Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Muffins

Double Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Muffins ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chocolate #muffin #recipe

This amazing recipe comes from Sally’s Baking Addiction Dark chocolate muffins with melty dark chocolate chips and a peanut butter swirl on top. They are made with Greek yogurt (instead of oil or butter) which adds protein and lowers the fat content, plus half whole wheat flour to up the healthy fiber. Oh, and only […]


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 […]


Toasted PB, Banana & Dark Chocolate Panini

Toasted Peanut Butter Banana Dark Chocolate Panini ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

Have you ever had one of those days at work where you are so busy you hardly have time to think (let alone eat) and you get home, walk in the door, and you are so hungry, the very first thing you see that’s edible you just latch onto and you’re GOT to have it. […]

Peanut Butter Smoreo Bars ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #oreo #peanut butter #marshmallow #bars

Adapted just slightly from Top with Cinnamon Oooey gooey “s’more” bars with a chocolate Oreo cookie crust, peanut butter, chocolate chips, chopped salty peanuts and perfectly toasted marshmallows.

Magic in the Middle Cookies: Chewy Chocolate Cookies with a Creamy PB Center #cookie #recipe

Dense,  moist chocolate cookies with a creamy peanut butter center. These are my son’s very favorite cookies. He begs me to make them for him and so yes, we’ve made them many times. I’ve meant to blog them several times, but never quite got around to it. We often make a double batch. Did I […]
