Baked Sriracha Ranch Asparagus Fries

Baked Sriracha Ranch Asparagus Fries ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #crispy #asparagus #appetizer #recipe

Asparagus spears coated in cool & spicy sriracha ranch and crispy crunchy garlicky (and coincidentally gluten free!) crumbs and then oven-baked to crispy tender perfection, with extra Sriracha Ranch Dressing for dipping. I think I may have just stumbled upon asparagus nirvana. Crispy oven-baked things call to me. The crunch is what I crave. This morning when yoga […]


Buffalo Blue Cheese Cauliflower Dip

buffalo-blue-cheese-cauliflower-dip

My Wednesday night yoga group had our 5th (or possibly 6th?) annual white elephant yoga Christmas party last week … we all bring a white elephant gift and some good food to share. And wine, of course. There’s always wine. This year there was turmeric tea, too, for our friends who don’t drink. First we do […]


Peach Pecan Pulled Pork Salad

Peach Pecan Pulled Pork Salad with Smoky Chipotle BBQ Ranch Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #salad for #dinner #recipe

A while ago, I made some pulled pork for my kids in the crockpot, so they’d have something a little outside of their normal routine to eat. I’ve been wanting to make a salad with it ever since I made it. I had visions of a BBQ Cobb salad when I walked into the kitchen, […]


Pot Roast Avocado Salad

Pot Roast Avocado Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cookonceeattwice #salad #recipe

with blue cheese crumbles and a spicy low-cal Sriracha Ranch dressing I’m a huge fan of cooking once, and eating new, creative meals not just once, but two or three times based on that first dish. It just makes cooking your follow-on meals so much easier! And you don’t have to deal with that awful […]


Super Simple Lactose Free Ranch Dressing

Lactose Free Ranch Dressing ~ #nondairy #ranch #dressing #dip #recipe

One day at work a friend of mine messaged me, asking if I had a lactose-free recipe for ranch dressing. She has a great love for ranch dressing, but lately has developed a lactose intolerance and she was so sad that she is unable to eat her beloved ranch anymore (well, she still CAN eat it, but … […]


Spinach Havarti Grilled Cheese Egg in a Hole

Spinach Havarti Grilled Cheese Egg in a Hole ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #grilledcheese #egg #breakfast #recipe

I get food inspirations at the oddest moments. I was driving around town the other day when the idea of a grilled cheese egg in a hole popped into my mind. I thought “really I must try that this weekend” and filed it away in the back of my mind. It’s Saturday morning and as soon […]

with helpful links for salad inspirations, salad questions, health information, and links to over 81 salad and salad dressing recipes Last week I hosted my very first cooking class.

Grilled Chicken & Black Bean Salad with Chipotle Ranch Dressing | Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dinner #salad #recipe

I have had a marvelous Chipotle Cilantro ranch dressing from one of the local restaurants … I can’t quite recall which one, but I remember that yummy dressing. I found some amazing chipotle powder online, but I couldn’t find any fresh cilantro at the grocery store. Ah well, next time I will have to add […]


Bacon, Feta & Tomato Salad

Bacon Feta & Tomato Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #salad #recipe

with sunflower seeds & a buttermilk herb ranch salad dressing It’s so wonderful when you can find really tasty tomatoes in the midst of winter! Large tomatoes with taste are simply nowhere to be found from a store (ever … at least that is how it is here), but I have found some sweet, wonderful […]

A crusty grilled pizza with a loaded twice baked potato topping. This is a pizza I’ve been working to perfect for a long time and I’m so excited because I FINALLY got it right! There is a local bar here in town that makes an incredible mashed potato pizza. I know, it sounds a little […]

Tomato Cucumber Salad with Tahini Yogurt Ranch Dressing

Tina at Mom’s Crazy Cooking has a monthly challenge for food bloggers. She asks all of us to make one certain thing on the 7th of each month … the idea is we are searching for the ultimate recipe for that one thing. This month it’s ranch dressing. Ranch I can do! I’ve made plain […]


Triple Tomato Ranch Pasta Salad

Triple Tomato Ranch Pasta Salad with Meat & Feta

This was the salad I had in mind when I created the sundried tomato ranch dressing. A super simple, very tomato salad bursting that really focuses on the tomato. I forgot to put the feta cheese on BEFORE I took the pictures … ooops! But don’t forget to add the feta. The tangy salty feta […]


Flippin’ Amazing Barbecue Chicken Salad

Flippin' Amazing BBQ Chicken Salad

with Jalapeno Cilantro Ranch Dressing There was this barbecue restaurant in California we used to go to for lunch … I can’t remember the name of it, but I could drive right to it if I were there … I know right where it is. They made the most amazing barbecue chicken salad. I think […]


Avocado Ranch Salad Dressing (Low Sodium Option)

Avocado Ranch Salad Dressing with Low Sodium Option

I found some lovely ripe avocados at the store today and it just occurred to me that avocado would be delicious in a Ranch Salad Dressing. Maybe I live in a hole, but why haven’t I ever seen that before? Before today, that is. Because here it is! Tada! Super quick, super healthy, super delicious, […]


Garlic Ranch Potato Bake with Mushrooms

Garlic Ranch Potato Mushroom Spinach Bake

I was in a potato mood. This was just one of those things that just happened one day. I walked into my kitchen, pulled out things that ought to go with potato, snipped some fresh dill from the rogue dill plants that just volunteered to grow in the pots I brought inside and suddenly I […]
