Irish Cream Mocha Latte Magic Bars

Irish Cream Mocha Latte Magic Bars ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #decadent #dessert #recipe

These bars go by many names and can be made in so many flavors. My son likes to refer to them as “mashup bars”, while my yoga friends call them “orgasm bars” (because they taste like an orgasm in your mouth) … my foodie friends refer to these type of bars as “magic bars”.  All […]


Pork Banh Mi Lettuce Wraps

Pork Banh Mi Lettuce Wraps ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Vietnamese #Asian #pork #recipe

All the Asian deliciousness of a Vietnamese Pork Banh Mi sandwich with the sweetly sauced pork, pickled veggies, crunchy peanuts and fresh cilantro, but in a crunchy, healthy lettuce wrap instead of a bun. I totally love these lettuce wraps even more than the sandwich! And it was very nice to hear at the event I served […]


Spiralized Rainbow Pad Thai

Spiralized Rainbow Pad Thai ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #Thai #recipe

Inspired by Oh She Glows A rainbow of vegetables partner with shrimp, chicken, eggs and traditional Pad Thai flavors to create a beautiful, vibrant, veggie-licious yet high protein meal full of delightful Asian flavors. It’s amazing to eat hot right out of the pan, but also surprisingly good cold too, as a Pad Thai “salad”. I decided […]


Kung Pao Cauliflower

Kung Pao Cauliflower | Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Chinese #cauliflower #recipe

Inspired by Bon Appetit I freaking love everything Kung Pao … so when I stumbled across this fabulous recipe for Kung Pao brussel sprouts, I knew I wanted to try it. But as I was thinking it over, I thought … hmmm, wouldn’t cauliflower be better with the intense Kung Pao sauce than Brussel Sprouts? […]


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. […]


Vietnamese Pork Banh Mi Sandwiches

Vietnamese Pork Banh Mi Sandwiches ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Asian #Pork #Sandwich #recipe

Highly adapted from The Food Network I’ve been seeing Pork Banh Mi sandwiches all over the foodisphere lately … and wondering just what is so wonderful about these sandwiches? So when I found myself with a big ol’ hunk of pork and a big event coming up that I was doing the food for, I […]


Mango Ginger Peanut Clusters

Mango Ginger Peanut Clusters ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quick #easy #candy #treat #recipe #glutenfree

Spring is upon us and I have a spring cleaning bug … badly. I want to clear away the clutter in my house, in my mind, in my soul. Let it all go, make space. Strangely, that is how these little clusters came to be. I was cleaning off the clutter from the countertops, putting […]


Vietnamese Pulled Pork Salad

Vietnamese Pulled Pork Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #cabbage #pork #salad #recipe

Adapted from Peachy Palate I had a bit of BBQ pulled pork that I made for my young adult kids that was left after they were done enjoying their sandwiches. Once they’re done, they’re done. There’s no eating the leftovers, so I stashed the leftover pulled pork in a freezer-safe container in the freezer until I had […]


White Chocolate Peanut Grapes

White Chocolate Peanut Grapes ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #party #food #recipe

Delightful little bites with juicy grapes, sweet creamy white chocolate and crunchy honey roasted peanuts-on a stick! These little grapes (and their cousins I’ll be sharing soon) are the most fun little treats I’ve made in a long time. I saw the idea on Pinterest and honestly cannot remember the name of the blog that shared them […]


Jack’s Nutty Fruit & Chocolate Snack Mix

Jack's Fruit & Chocolate Snack Mix ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #chocolate #snack #recipe

I went on a business trip this week. The agenda was packed, with no breaks planned, all day and into the evening and I was really nervous that there wouldn’t be any healthy snacks or time to eat. Without my snacks, well, let’s just say it’s really not a good thing, so I decided I […]


Peanut Butter S’moreo Bars

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. Usually I don’t like s’mores. I remember I used to like them sometime way back in the dim past, but not any more. They are altogether too […]


Snowdrift Vanilla Porter Beer Nuts

Snowdrift Vanilla Porter Beer Nuts ~ from Sumptuous Spoonfuls #beer #nuts #recipe

Adapted from Beer Magazine Caramelized vanilla porter, maple syrup, brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice combine to make these sweet salty peanuts more than a little addictive. Make sure to snack on these the next time you are drinking a deep, dark porter. If you’re going to be sitting around drinking beer for the Superbowl, you […]


Pumpkin Gingersnap Chocolate Chip Granola

Pumpkin Gingersnap Chocolate Chip Granola

Sweet crunchy homemade granola with intermingling tastes of pumpkin, gingersnap cookies, and chocolate, inspired by Simply Gourmet’s Gingerbread Granola. I’m travelling today with my daughter who is supposed to be at a dance workshop all day, but instead she is here in the hotel feeling yucky and dizzy, so I’m pondering what to do for her […]


Maple Spice Pumpkin Cranberry Granola

Maple Spice Pumpkin Granola ~ www.SumptuousSpoonfuls.com

  Eeek! I’m so excited! I did it … I finally got my own domain, my own home for my blog. I’ve been researching, thinking, dreaming of what I could do if I only had a REAL site of my own. Today I took the plunge and just did it. It really wasn’t as hard […]

Sesame Noodles with Cucumber

Sesame Noodles with Cucumber

Brianne at Cupcakes & Kale Chips is a great source of food inspiration for me. When she posted a recipe for sesame noodles, I wanted them right away … it was a simple, quick recipe, so I went into the kitchen and made them straight away. I have veggies galore in my kitchen right now, […]


Shrimp Pad Thai

Shrimp Pad Thai

I came home from yoga last night wanting noodles. Badly. It was a power yoga class and she worked us hard … I could tell because my legs were sore already. So it was clearly time to make the Pad Thai I’ve been wanting to make. A while ago I had found these beautiful brown […]


Homemade Banana Nutella Granola

Homemade Chocolate Banana Nutella Granola

I am completely obsessed with homemade granola. It’s so marvelous to munch on … to have for breakfast in a bowl with milk. To make into a parfait. To sprinkle on ice cream. It’s nothing like that flat-tasting store-bought stuff that to me just tastes like sugar and cardboard. Homemade granola is like 10,000 levels […]

Thai-Style Barbecued Chicken Salad

Thai Style Barbecue Chicken Salad

Even as I was eating my Thai Chicken Pizza the other night, I began dreaming of this salad. The flavors on that pizza were just screaming to be thrown over some pretty greens and doused in that amazing Spicy Thai Peanut Sauce. Add some pineapple, a bit of celery, and some chopped peanuts and ooh […]


Super Simple Spicy Thai Peanut Sauce

Super Simple Spicy Thai Peanut Sauce

I went looking for an easy Thai Peanut Sauce recipe last night because I’m enthralled with Thai food and I wanted to make Thai Chicken Pizza, but I can never find all the ingredients that authentic Thai recipes seem to require. I couldn’t believe my luck! If you can find fish sauce and Thai-style curry […]
