Holiday Apple Pomegranate Sangria

Holiday Apple Pomegranate Sangria ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #holiday #cocktail #wine #recipe

Sangria is an adult beverage I’ve come to appreciate more and more ever since my friend Ann at The Fountain Avenue Kitchen posted her recipe for classic Spanish sangria. Since then I’ve made many variations of Sangria, both white and red versions, each one with its own special twist. This year I wanted to make […]

One more recipe for #Choctoberfest! Oh it’s been fun dreaming about all the wonderful things I could do with chocolate this week. This whole big event has been sponsored by Imperial Sugar.

Very Berry Ice Cream Float

Very Berry Ice Cream Float ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #icecream #float #recipe

July is National Ice Cream Month. Normally, I’m not a “drink my calories” kinda gal, but every once in a while, you gotta give in and have a summer treat, especially when we’re right in the middle of National Ice Cream Month and the temperatures outside are soaring. We’ve been very lucky this summer. Temperatures have […]


Blueberry Poached Pear Salad

Blueberry Poached Pear Salad with Candied Walnuts, Blue Cheese & a Raspberry Malbec Vinaigrette ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #gourmet #pear #salad #recipe

with blue cheese, candied walnuts and a raspberry malbec vinaigrette It’s still winter in my little corner of the world and today was a total chiller! Temperatures dropped back down below zero and I didn’t even want to look at the wind chill factor. When temps go down that low when I’m getting to the point when […]


Mixed Berry Bread Pudding

Mixed Berry Bread Pudding ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #berry #dessert #recipe

with Drunken Limoncello Berry Sauce I have been on a de-cluttering mission lately, so I cleaned out my freezer in my fridge yesterday. I discovered that I had several partially used containers of frozen berries as well as some freezer jam that we’d totally forgotten about. I decided those precious berries and jam needed to be used up right […]

Baby Pink Raspberry Ice Cream ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #icecream #raspberry #recipe

It’s September, everyone is posting pumpkin and apple and soup recipes, and I’m posting ICE CREAM? Yeah, I know, it’s a little odd, but hey, it IS raspberry season in my world, and my friend Jessica is pregnant. I promised Jessica last summer sometime that I would make her ice cream, once we found out whether her baby […]


Aztec Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Aztec Chocolate Zucchini Cake with Raspberry Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chocolate #raspberry #zucchini #cake #recipe

with Raspberry Sauce … (and Gluten Free options) When I visited my parents last weekend, they had one of those large zucchini sitting on their counter. They told me I should take it to make something. “It’s perfect for cake,” I said, and gladly took it off their hands, with visions of chocolate cake dancing […]


Making Salads a Sumptuous Meal

Strawberry Almond Wild Violet Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #salad #recipe

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. My full-time job doesn’t normally involve cooking, but I found a way to combine the two! I went to our HR director and volunteered to do […]


Double Chocolate Raspberry Quinoa Muffins

Double Chocolate Raspberry Quinoa Muffins ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quinoa #recipe

Adapted from Lauren Kelly, Certified Nutritionist Dense, chocolate muffins with a hint of fresh raspberry, made healthier with the addition of quinoa. Quinoa is a wonder seed, full of fiber and protein … often thought of as a grain, but it’s not really. I love the nutty, chewy texture of quinoa when I’m cooking. It’s […]


Cardamom Raspberry Rose Buns

Cardamom Raspberry Rose Buns ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sweet #bread #recipe

Inspired by Del’s Cooking Twist The moment I saw these pretty buns from Del’s Cooking Twist, I wanted to make them. I love playing with bread dough, filling it with things, twisting and turning and shaping and molding … then letting it rise up and bake and seeing the beautiful shapes it becomes. These buns […]


Black Raspberry White Chocolate Scones

Black Raspberry White Chocolate Scones ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #scone #recipe

Adapted from Dannon’s Summer Berry Scones There is a local coffee shop in our town that makes the best raspberry white chocolate scones. They only serve them on weekend mornings and if you don’t get there early enough, you won’t get a scone because they ALWAYS run out of them. I used to crave those scones, […]


Raspberry Cream Brownie Truffles

Raspberry Cream Brownie Truffles

One of my girlfriends, when she tasted these truffles, told me (in a quiet voice so the “boys” wouldn’t hear) that these truffles are almost better than sex. I laughed, and she said, “I’m serious!” … since then, a couple of my other girlfriends have confirmed her opinion … and I’m quite curious to see […]


Raspberry Salmon Havarti Toast with Wild Greens

Raspberry Salmon Havarti Toast with Wild Greens

Do you recognize those “wild” greens? Today is National Weed Appreciation Day and you know what? I really appreciate my weeds. Oh some of them are a pain, literally, like the thistles and the cockleburrs that I just can’t seem to get under control, but the dandelions and wild violets that sprout up all over […]


Lowfat Apple Berry Granola Crisp

Lowfat Apple Berry Granola Crisp

It was raining this morning and I’d been gone all weekend. I needed to bake something. I have these frozen apples in a bag my friend gave me for making apple pies, but I’m not so good at pies. Have I mentioned my fear of crusts? I am not good with pie crust … and […]
