The BEST Pumpkin Pie Ever ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pumpkin #pie #recipe

If you are picky about your pumpkin pie, this is seriously the best pumpkin pie ever. Especially if you care about texture. Because really, […]

This is my third recipe for #Choctoberfest and I’m super excited to share it with you!

(Incidentally, I think that’s included in the […]

It’s a white chocolate fudge with pumpkin and Irish cream … oh and some salty, crunchy pepitas thrown in, for good measure.

Pumpkin Maple Amaretto Trifle

Pumpkin Maple Amaretto Trifle ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #pumpkin #dessert #recipe

A whipped cream lover’s delight … layers of pumpkin maple amaretto infused mascarpone cheese with angel food cake squares and amaretto whipped cream. I’ve made this trifle twice now … once for my friend at work who recently had a birthday, but I didn’t photograph it that day, so I HAD to make it again. […]


Ginger Spice Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

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 […]


Creamy Rosemary Sage Pumpkin Soup

Creamy Rosemary Sage Pumpkin Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #creamy #savory #pumpkin #soup #recipe

with goat cheese crumbles A savory thick and creamy pumpkin soup with sage and fresh rosemary. The goat cheese is just the right tangy creamy touch to finish it. I baked up a pumpkin with visions of a roasted pumpkin salad like I’d seen in photos around the web. The only thing was, once I’d roasted the […]


Sweet Maple Pumpkin Spice Hummus

Sweet Maple Pumpkin Spice Hummus ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sweet #autumn #hummus #recipe

Adapted from The First Year Blog The taste of pumpkin and all those lovely autumn pumpkin spices in a healthy sweet maple dip that is reminiscent of hummus. Well actually it IS hummus, minus the garlic and tahini, then add in pumpkin puree, peanut butter (to stand in for the tahini), pumpkin pie spice and maple syrup. […]


Simple Ceylon Cinnamon Pumpkin Pie

Simple Ceylon Cinnamon Pumpkin Pie ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pumpkin #pie #recipe

Adapted from Very Best Baking It’s St. Patrick’s Day, everyone is celebrating all things Irish and green and rainbows … and I’m blogging about Pumpkin Pie? It seems like a strange collision of holidays, a mad time warp, sort of like that time I was photographing a Valentine’s Day recipe on Halloween. But really, it’s […]


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 […]


Mushroom & Bacon Beer Cheese Soup

Bacon Mushroom Beer Cheese Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

This is an oldie but a goodie … a recipe I’m re-posting because it would be perfect for the frigid winter we’re having this year. 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 […]


Pumpkin Orange Cranberry Bread

Pumpkin Orange Cranberry Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quickbread #recipe

I decided I needed to do another version of pumpkin bread, because I had a partially-used can of pumpkin in my fridge. And also because I also had some Orange Shandy in my beer fridge that I really didn’t want to drink. I’m more of a dark, hoppy beer drinker. Fruity beers belong in food. […]


Sneaky Gypsy Pumpkin Chili

Sneaky Gypsy Pumpkin Chili ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chili #recipe

On Halloween week at work, we had a week of fun activities … we had a pumpkin carving contest and a comfy day (which I totally missed cuz I forgot), a breakfast potluck and of course, we were invited to dress up for Halloween. My team dressed up as bats (because we drive the developers […]


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 […]


Maple Spice Pumpkin Latte {with Skinny Options}

Maple Spice Pumpkin Latte ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #coffee #recipe

(no espresso maker required) This morning I went to yoga on an empty stomach. Very bad idea. Normally if I do this, I can’t even make it through yoga class, but thanks to all the extra food I ate this week, I didn’t have any trouble making it through yoga. The trouble I had was […]


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 […]


Sweet Harvest Pumpkin Ale Bread

Sweet Harvest Pumpkin Ale Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pumpkin #bread #recipe

with a Maple Cream Cheese Drizzle This is one of the things I had in mind when I made my Maple Amaretto Pumpkin Butter. I thought that using pumpkin butter would give the bread a more intense pumpkin taste. And I had signed up for the Spiked! Recipe challenge, which features fall beers. I thought one […]


Maple Amaretto Pumpkin Butter

Maple Amaretto Pumpkin Butter ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pumpkin #recipe

Adapted from Citronlimette and The Hungry Belgian It’s starting to feel like autumn here finally … some years I’m kicking and screaming, not wanting to let go of summer, but this year, for some reason, I’m welcoming fall with open arms. The evening chill feels good, I’m happy to pull out my “keep my feet […]


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 […]


Crumb-topped Pumpkin Cheesecake Squares

Crumb Topped Pumpkin Cheesecake Squares ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pumpkin #cheesecake #recipe

Cookies or cheesecake? How about both! A thick shortbread cookie crust covered with a light pumpkin cheesecake layer, then topped off with a nutty crumb topping. I shared these yummy little cheesecake squares with the folks at my new office and they all enjoyed them. I’ve promised to get the recipe up soon … if […]


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 […]


Pumpkin Dinner Rolls for Thanksgiving

Pumpkin Dinner Rolls from Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pumpkin #bread #rolls #recipe

I always try to find a fun food project to do with the kids on the holidays. For Thanksgiving this year, I saw these adorable Pumpkin Dinner Rolls from Beyond Kimchee and thought it would be a great project to do with my little nieces and nephew. As soon as I started gathering things for […]


Drunk n Nutty Pumpkin Amaretto Fruitcake

Drunk n Nutty Pumpkin Amaretto Fruitcake

I don’t know about you, but at our house we sometimes get a little drunk and  nutty over the holidays, so I’m thinking this fruitcake will fit right in! Don’t be scared: this fruitcake is something any “nut” on your list would LOVE to dig into. A sweet pumpkin cake laced with amaretto and rum, filled […]


Transformations & Pumpkin Amaretto Bread Pudding

Amaretto Pumpkin Bread Pudding

Pumpkin bread pudding laced with Amaretto, maple syrup, pecans and all the wonderful spices of fall. Bread pudding is so warm, wonderful and inviting at this time of year. I love it, partly because my mother used to make it for us when we were kids … but also because it is transformational. Bread pudding transforms […]
