Golden Raisin Gorgonzola Kale Salad

Golden Raisin Gorgonzola Kale Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #kale #salad #recipe

with toasted almonds & a maple dijon yogurt dressing Each week I make my yoga friends (and myself) a salad. This was last week’s salad. I usually put the salads in wide-mouthed quart mason jars (which can be enough for two, if they’re using the salad as a side, rather than a meal). My yoga friends eat […]

Irish Barmbrack Bread with tea-soaked raisins ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #wholewheat #irish #yeast #breadmachine #recipe

Adapted from Seasons & Suppers St. Patty’s Day is just around the corner. It’s one of my favorite holidays … and no, not just because of the beer. I have always been fascinated with Ireland. It’s on the list of places I must go. When I visited England and Scotland years ago, I wanted to […]

Vanilla Coconut Snacking Granola ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #coconutoil #healthy #natural #lowsugar #homemade #granola #recipe

My yoga friend Sue went to Mexico last month. When she came back, all she could talk about was this wonderful granola that she had in Mexico … she brought back several jars of it and told us how she and her husband would munch on it like snack mix. It’s not sweet, she said, as […]

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 […]


Pistachio Zucchini Lime Cake

Zucchini Lime Cake with Pistachios ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #zucchini #cake #recipe

Slightly adapted from La Difference Catering I’m re-posting this recipe from last summer because it is another one of those recipes that got messed up in the move from free wordpress to here. Ignore the part about today being the last day of the A-Z health challenge and it’s not really my parents’ 50th … that […]


Morning Glory Muffins

Morning Glory Muffins ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #muffin #recipe

Adapted from King Arthur Flour Sweet muffins packed with all sorts of healthy goodness! Carrots, apple, raisins, nuts and sunflower seeds, whole wheat flour, and then topped with toasted coconut. I wanted to make these to take with me on my trip last week, but it didn’t get done. I had put the raisins in […]


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 […]


Pumpkin Apricot Oatmeal Pie

Pumpkin Apricot Oatmeal Pie

If you bake it in a pie pan, it’s a pie, right? I am naming this a Pumpkin Apricot Oatmeal Pie to distinguish it from the mushy stuff you usually think of as oatmeal. Don’t get me wrong: I love a hot steamy bowl of oatmeal, but this definitely doesn’t have that soft mushy texture […]
