Garlic Rosemary Roasted Cauliflower

Garlic Rosemary Roasted Cauliflower ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #crispy #cauliflower #recipe

Crispy, rosemary garlic roasted cauliflower uses infused olive oil and tiny bits of feta for flavor … the result is light and healthy, yet surprisingly addictive.

Spicy Chorizo Zuppa Toscana ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sausage #kale #soup #recipe

I was gifted some kale from my sister’s garden … and I just dreamed of making a sausage, potato, & kale soup … I said this to one of my friends and they said … “oh, you mean Zuppa Toscana, like Olive Garden?” … uh, yeah. I hadn’t thought of that, somehow (I very rarely go […]


Better than Rotisserie Crockpot Chicken

Better than Rotisserie Crockpot Chicken ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #crockpot #rotisserie #chicken #recipe

Adapted slightly from Cooking on the Ranch who got the recipe from The Unorthodox Epicure (I am sad that I cannot locate his version of the recipe!) The other day, when Cooking on the Ranch posted this recipe, I immediately wanted to try it. My daughter is a chicken fanatic and rotisserie chicken is something she often requests when […]


Zucchini Chanterelle Brown Rice Risotto

A creamy, nutty, comforting risotto that is much easier to make than traditional risotto … the rice is baked in the oven, rather than cooked on the stovetop with constant stirring like traditional risotto. This risotto is finished with about 5 minutes of stirring stovetop,  which brings out the starches from the rice and makes that […]

Bacon Goat Cheese Heirloom Tomato Galette

Bacon Goat Cheese Heirloom Tomato Galette ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #savory #tomato #pie #recipe

I have been working on this recipe for a while … the cheese mixture I had down on the first try. It was the crust I struggled with. First I tried it with a phyllo pastry crust, but the crust was too dry. I am not sure what I did wrong … I’ve had good […]


Cheese Stuffed Zucchini Herb Meatballs

Cheese Stuffed Zucchini Herb Meatballs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #meatball #recipe

I decided to have a big hurrah to say goodbye to summer … I took Thursday afternoon and Friday off so I could go up to visit my parents before the weekend started, since I had other plans for the rest of the weekend. While I was there, my cousin texted and asked if he […]

Lemon Grilled Salmon w/Rosemary Garlic Veggies

Lemon Grilled Salmon with Mixed Grilled Veggies ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #delicious #lowcal #glutenfree #dinner #recipe

I love salmon. It’s so quick to make, so healthy and soooo delicious. Preparing it on the grill is super fast and easy–you just make a little “plank” for it out of lemon slices and not only do you get that wonderful smoky taste, it’s also infused with the lively taste of lemon. To accompany […]


Easy Cheesy BLT Spirals

Easy Cheese BLT Spirals ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheese #bacon #sundriedtomato #appetizer #recipe

I didn’t quite intend these to look so “St. Patrick’s Day”-ish, but I love the way they turned out. The parsley looks so “shamrock”-ish on top, doesn’t it? You see, it just so happened I had some of those giganto-saurus spinach tortillas left from the wraps I made the other day and a quandary over […]


Dark & Smoky Caramelized Onion Gouda Soup

Dark & Smoky Caramelized Onion Gouda Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #french #onion #soup #recipe

Hasselback Potatoes Au Gratin

Hasselback Potatoes Au Gratin ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthier #scalloped #potato #hasselback #recipe

Adapted from The Baker Chick. Au gratin potatoes with garlic and rosemary, made in hasselback fashion so the tops of the potatoes get crunchy while the bottoms are tender and cheesy. Some might call these scalloped potatoes, but I’ve been told that if there is cheese involved, then it’s au gratin, not scalloped. Scalloped potatoes are […]


Creamy Rosemary Sage Pumpkin Soup

Creamy Rosemary Sage Pumpkin Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #creamy #savory #pumpkin #soup #recipe

with goat cheese crumbles A savory thick and creamy pumpkin soup with sage and fresh rosemary. The goat cheese is just the right tangy creamy touch to finish it.

Fire Roasted Mixed Herb Baba Ganoush ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #garlic #tahini Middle Eastern #dip #recipe

The first time I “met” Baba Ganoush was at a party with my sister (who is, by the way, a fabulous and very adventurous cook).

Sausage & Pepper Potato Swirl Hash ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #potato #sausage #breakfast #hash #recipe

It was a quiet Sunday morning. The teenagers were asleep, it was just me and the cats. I wanted something good for breakfast, but just couldn’t quite settle on what to have. So I piddled around the house, doing this and that, getting a few things done but mostly just sipping tea and looking at […]


Mixed Herb Pesto

Mixed Herb Pesto ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #herb #pesto #recipe

The harvest has not even begun and still, I’m readying myself for the end of summer. I’ve seen the “back to school” signs in the store that always signify the end is near … why do they do that to us? It’s still July, can’t we just enjoy the warmth and colors of our beautiful […]


Red White & Blue Ricotta Galette

Red White & Blue Ricotta Galette ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #4thofJuly #dessert #recipe

Happy Independence Day! I woke up early today, the sun shining on my bed at 5:30 am and I was absurdly, entirely awake. I had planned to sleep in today, but my body and the sun had other plans, apparently. There was no use lying in bed when I was so thoroughly alive and awake. […]
