Honey Orange Thyme Marinated Cheddar

Honey Orange Thyme Marinated Cheddar Cheese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheese #appetizer #recipe

Adapted slightly from A Nutritionist Eats Creamy aged cheddar marinated in a touch of honey, extra virgin olive oil, and a little garlic with a hint of orange and a light dance of red pepper. It’s a delightful way to serve up cheese that will take your guests by surprise. A long, long time ago I […]


Roasted Tomato Red Pepper Bisque

Roasted Tomato Red Pepper Bisque ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #tomato #redpepper #soup #recipe

Adapted heavily from Girl Gone Gourmet A sweet and savory soup to soothe your soul. Heirloom tomatoes are roasted with mini sweet peppers, carrot, onion and garlic to soften and intensify their natural flavors. The soup is then cooked and pureed with fresh herbs, a little light cream and Greek cream cheese. The result is as […]


Harissa Tomato Soup with Cheese Crisps

Harissa Tomato Soup with Cheese Crisps ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #harissa #tomato #soup #recipe

This soup is vibrant, colorful, healthy and tasty, and the cheese crisps as a garnish are so fun as dippers. It’s a little like our American favorite of tomato soup with grilled cheese, but without the carbs and adding a zesty African twist. It is comfort food that reminds you to live a little, to […]


Smoky Romesco Mini Cheese Balls

Smoky Romesco Mini Cheese Balls ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #redpepper #spicy #cheeseball #appetizer #recipe

Have you ever accidentally clicked the “Publish” button before you were ready to publish the recipe … that is what happened tonight so now I’m in a big panic to get this post polished before most of you see it. It’s kind of like sending out the email to an important client without the attachment. […]


Hearty Romesco Mixed Bean Soup

Hearty Romesco Mixed Bean Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cureforthespringblues #soup #recipe

April is such an emotional month in my part of the world. By “emotional”, I mean ups and downs in weather are so totally unpredictable and wild. One day might be perfectly beautiful, sunny and 72 and the next night you might be digging your winter coat out because it’s going to get down into […]


Classic Creamy Hummus – 2 Ways

Classic Creamy Hummus ~ 2 Ways Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #delicious #hummus #recipe #pickyourflavor

This post is for those of you who buy hummus at the store. I used to do that. I was convinced there was no way I could make hummus that tastes that good. But after a little trial and error, I discovered that I CAN make that hummus–for a fraction of what the pre-made stuff costs and […]


Spinach Sundried Tomato Dip

Spinach Sundried Tomato Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheese #spread #dip #recipe

I volunteered to bring dips & sweets as my contribution to our Christmas feasting this year. As you may have noticed from my posts lately with all the fudges and bars and things, I went a little overboard in the sweets department, but I was determined to have enough sweets so that we wouldn’t have […]


Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Soup

Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #redpepper #soup #recipe

Roasted red peppers and cream cheese with a bit of Sriracha in a warm, comforting, creamy soup. Soooo this is the next most requested recipe on my list of gotta-get-posted recipes for the blog. It is actually a recipe I made some time ago, back in October. I made it, I tried it … I liked it, […]


Muhammara {Roasted Red Pepper Dip}

Muhammara {a Mediterranean Roasted Red Pepper Dip} ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #mediterranean #dip #recipe

I discovered this dip when a bunch of us went out for lunch one Friday. We went to the Mediterranean restaurant in town that is SO good and one of my friends ordered a dip trio for lunch consisting of hummus, an olive tepanade and some lovely red stuff that I was soooo curious about. I […]


Roasted Red Pepper Chipotle Hummus

Roasted Red Pepper Chipotle Hummus ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spicy #hummus #recipe

I firmly believe that hummus makes life better. Every time I have it, I feel all happy inside. I remember the first time I tasted hummus. I was a teenager. My parents had dragged us to a “weird” restaurant (that is how it seemed, to my teenage mind) where we were sitting on pillows on […]

Beefy Dijon White Cheddar Dip

Beefy Dijon White Cheddar Dip ~ #easy #meat #dip #recipe from Sumptuous Spoonfuls

A wonderful creamy hot & beefy cheese dip with a flavor boost from gourmet Dijon mustard. It’s surprisingly healthy and high in protein too, with lean meat, onions, garlic, a goodly amount of nonfat Greek yogurt, sundried tomatoes, some sharp white cheddar cheese and a few red pepper flakes. You don’t need to feel guilty […]


Turkey Tomato Roasted Red Pepper Sandwich

Turkey Tomato Roasted Red Pepper Sandwich with Havarti Cheese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

with Havarti Cheese and Mixed Greens I wish I could think of a shorter name for this sandwich … I pondered it long and hard and eventually I just gave up. It’s just got too many good things inside it! The Smoky Red Pepper Cashew Cream Sauce is the star, the flavor burst that makes […]


Curried Red Pepper Aubergine Soup

Fire Roasted Red Pepper Eggplant Thai Curry Soup

I’ve been toying with the idea of making a thai-style curry soup with my aubergines … aubergine, isn’t that a fabulous word? It sounds so fancy and cultured to me. Usually I just use the word “eggplant”, but it doesn’t carry the same elegance that these beautiful purple vegetables really deserve. Anyway, I came home […]


Spiedies {Legendary Italian Marinated Meat Kebabs}

Spiedies: Legendary Italian Meat Kebabs

My Italian friend Linda tells me “the name Spiedies has nothing to do with speed and everything to with the Big Daddy of spiedies which is spiedini, the Italian kebab or skewered and grilled meat.” Spiedies are an upstate New York Italian favorite that really started in the Middle East. When the Middle Eastern conquerors invaded Italy, they brought […]
