Super Quick Power Oatmeal! I love a bowl of good oatmeal for breakfast, especially when it is quick and easy and healthy–and decadent. I was travelling last weekend and needing a good breakfast.

Toffee Grapes

Toffee Grapes ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #holiday #dessert #snack #appetizer #recipe

Adapted just slightly from The Nutrition Twins These little bites are an amazing combination of sweet, crunchy, juicy and creamy … they are a bit like one little bite-size caramel apple, but with extra crunch from the toffee. They are the sweeter cousins of the White Chocolate Peanut Grapes–both exceedingly simple, both amazing in their own right. I […]

Zucchini Ravioli

Zucchini Ravioli ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #zucchini #ricotta #cheese #gf #recipe

Slightly adapted from The Healthy Maven I’ve discovered the simplest, most elegant way to make zucchini noodles.

I jealously watched other foodies post their gorgeous zoodle photos for years and finally […]

Garden Tomato Pepper Cheese Crisp ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #cheesy #tomato #pepper #recipe

Steak & Blue Cheese Salad w Roasted Veggies

Steak & Blue Cheese Salad with Roasted Vegetables ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dinner #salad #recipe

Sometimes leftovers are simply best served on a bed of greens, with a sprinkle of cheese and a good dressing. I would totally choose this salad over a hunk of meat on a plate any day. I made a whole meal out of two chunks of meat from a kabob and savored every bite. To […]


Baked Eggs Bolognese in Brioche

Baked Eggs Bolognese in Brioche Bread Bowls ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #eggs #breakfast #recipe

Honey Lemon Lavender Chicken ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chicken #recipe

Inspired by My Little Expat Kitchen It’s Halloween tonight. I’m so enjoying the changing of the seasons, but the end of harvest is sort of a bittersweet thing for me.

with Rosemary Maple Yogurt Dressing & Toasted Pinons Sometimes when I’m at yoga and I’m doing the “listening to your body” part, I hear my body screaming for certain foods.

Super Easy Ginger Kumquat Marmalade ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #marmalade #recipe

Adapted slightly from Recipe Girl This is seriously the easiest marmalade ever! Making jam always sounds like such an intimidating project, doesn’t it?
