Shrimp & Smoked Salmon Sushi Bowl

Shrimp & Smoked Salmon Sushi Bowl ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #healthy #seafood #recipe

All the delicious flavors of sushi in an easy bowl! My friend Jon (who is Asian) calls this “bachelor sushi” … he tells me the way he makes sushi at home is just to throw it all in a bowl. Sometimes if he’s making sushi for a crowd, he just fills a cake pan with sushi ingredients. […]

Bacon-y goodness comes to fried rice, with hearty mushrooms and zucchini, carrots and red onion, and, of course, copious amounts of scrambled eggs.

A melty cheesy pie made with zucchini, bacon, onion, garlic and eggs. Enjoy it for breakfast, or brunch, or dinner, or anytime!

Perfect Sushi Rice

Perfect Sushi Rice ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sticky #sushi #rice #recipe

Adapted just slightly from Alton Brown When I first started considering making sushi, I knew the first thing I needed to get right was the rice. The Basmati rice that we love so much just wasn’t going to work for this purpose. So I did some research and found a good sushi rice … and then I […]


Turkey & Cream Cheese Sushi

Turkey & Cream Cheese Sushi ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sushi for #sushihaters #recipe

This is sushi for the sushi haters in the world … because contrary to popular belief, sushi does NOT mean raw fish.

Broccoli Carrot Rice Balls

Asian Broccoli Carrot Rice Balls ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #vegetarian #rice #recipe

I made these fun little rice balls for our Wine & Design event, to serve alongside my Asian Ginger Meatballs.

Adapted from A Splash of Vanilla I was out and about, searching the Interwebs for hearty, balanced lunchbox type salads for my cooking class, when I stumbled across this one.

Cranberry Chipotle Meatballs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #glutenfree #party #meatballs #recipe

I made this recipe because a friend of mine from work came to me and said she had this grass-fed ground round that she was having NO luck with whatsoever, so she asked if she could bring some of it to me and see if I could make something edible out of it. She complained that […]


Broccoli Cheddar Rice Cups

Broccoli Cheddar Rice Cups ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #snack #appetizer #recipe

Adapted very slightly from The Fountain Avenue Kitchen I almost want to apologize for that sugar binge I sent us on … it was a very sugar-y December for me. Luckily I had lots of help to eat it all! It’s time to slow down on sugar, though, and think about staying healthy for the […]
