Spanish Asparagus Revuelto (Scrambled Eggs)

I was searching around the interwebs for new ideas for asparagus and I stumbled across this gorgeous recipe from  The New York Times and I was intrigued. Revuelto, what a beautiful word … I’ve never heard that before. What does it mean? Google quickly helped me solve that conundrum. Revuelto means scrambled eggs. Ah! Of course! […]

Crispy baked cajun oven fries topped with with sausage, onions, peppers and a spicy, creamy creole Voodoo sauce Fat Tuesday is almost here!

Sausage & White Cheddar Spinach Balls ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesy #appetizer #recipe

These savory little spinach balls are a great way to re-purpose leftover stuffing after a big meal. They have just the right mix of flavors to make them totally addictive … I found myself eating them for breakfast, lunch, mid-afternoon snacks … you name it, these spinach balls were my food buddies. My first attempt […]


Spicy Chorizo Zuppa Toscana

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 […]


Cheesy Sausage & Corn Stuffed Mini Peppers

Cheesy Sausage & Corn Stuffed Peppers ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #StuffedPeppers #Recipe

It is harvest crunch time in middle America … when all of us with gardens and plants outside that we want to keep are fervently watching the weather to make sure our precious harvest doesn’t carelessly go to waste. I recently ran up to visit my parents. It was a quick trip, but they mentioned […]


Sausage & Kale Frittata

Sausage & Kale Frittata ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Sausage #Kale #Breakfast #Recipe

Last weekend I wanted a frittata. A healthy egg-y breakfast with cheese and vegetables … plus I had some leftover cooked breakfast sausage in my fridge that I decided to toss in. The flavor of the sausage with the kale and egg and cheese was magnificent. My stomach was pleased. My taste buds were happy. There […]


Breakfast Nachos Supreme

Breakfast Nachos Supreme ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fun #Mexican #breakfast #recipe

Nachos for breakfast! Now THIS is an amazing way to start a day. Breakfast nachos are something I have been wanting to try for a while … and I don’t know exactly why I haven’t. The other day the subject came up at work and we decided we need to make these for our monthly […]


Spinach Lasagna Stuffed Mushrooms

Spinach Lasagna Stuffed Mushrooms ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #lasagna #stuffed #mushrooms #lowcarb #recipe

Mushrooms are such a perfect vessel to hold bits of deliciousness. I am not sure exactly where I saw this idea … it was somewhere in the blogosphere, a brilliant idea from one of the foodie ninjas that I know. Once I saw it, I just HAD to try it, and I was so pleased with […]


Shrimp, Sausage & Cauliflower Jambalaya

Shrimp, Sausage & Cauliflower "Rice" Jambalaya ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #skinny #creole #jambalaya #recipe

adapted from Color Me Meg Once I’d tried that Cauliflower Fried Rice (and loved it!), I had this idea that there must be some other wonderful ways I could dress up that wondermous low-cal cauliflower rice, so I went a-searching and I came upon this recipe from Color Me Meg that totally intrigued me. I’ve always loved cajun and […]


Cheesy Chorizo Black Bean Queso Dip

Cheesy Chorizo Black Bean Queso Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Mexican #Queso #meaty #cheese #dip #recipe

A creamy, spicy, meaty Mexican-inspired cheese dip that will warm you inside and out. The name of this dip is redundant, I know. Queso means cheese, but the dip is all about cheese. It reminds me a bit of the cream cheese/salsa dip my ex-husband and I used to make. Or rather, he made it […]


Sausage & Potato Skillet Supreme

Sausage & Potato Skillet Supreme ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #skillet #dinner #recipe

One of my favorite times of year is when I’m visiting my Mom and Dad at harvest time, hand-picking veggies from the garden for our breakfast. My dad and I love to eat this for a hearty, healthy weekend breakfast, but it’s also great for an easy weeknight dinner or, even (like I’m doing this […]


Wild Mushroom & Sausage White Pizza

Wild Mushroom & Sausage White Pizza ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #mushroom #pizza #recipe

with Rachael Ray’s Pizza Crust (adapted for the bread machine) Have you ever had a white pizza?  The first time I encountered a white pizza, I have to admit I was a little befuddled. Growing up in middle America where pizza equated to Domino’s or Pizza Hut … or,  if you’re going with the frozen […]


Shrimp, Pork & Chicken Egg Rolls

Shrimp, Chicken & Pork Egg Rolls ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Asian #Eggroll #Recipe

So there’s this thing that happens in my house every year around St. Patrick’s Day and it has to do with cabbage. I love corned beef and cabbage and my kids love corned beef, but they aren’t so crazy about cabbage. I love cabbage, but I have a hard time eating a whole head of […]


Sausage & Shrimp Southern Gumbo

Shrimp & Sausage Southern Gumbo ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #shrimp #sausage #gumbo #mardigras #soup #recipe

It’s almost time for Mardi Gras! Although I live in the north, I’ve traveled to the south and tasted some pretty dang awesome southern food–and one of the dishes that tops the yumminess charts for me is Louisiana gumbo. I’ve always wanted to make an authentic gumbo at home, and since Mardi Gras is coming up, […]


Spinach & Sausage Strata

Spinach & Sausage Strata ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #dinner #recipe

If you have never had a strata, it is the savory cousin to bread pudding. It’s made with stale bread, so if you have old bread about that you don’t want to go to waste, all you need to do is add some sausage, eggs, cheeses and spinach to make a flavorful and easy yet cozy […]


Meaty Lasagna Bolognese

Meaty Lasagna Bolognese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #lasagna #recipe

A comforting meaty 4-layer lasagna with layers of herb-garlic ricotta cheese, beefy Bolognese sauce, Italian sausage, wide lasagna noodles and Italian cheeses. I’m trying another fresh attempt to get my kids to eat more home-cooked food (I have SUPER picky eaters!), so that means I need to make things that appeal to them. They both love lasagna, but […]


Sausage Zucchini Tomato Soup

Sausage Zucchini Tomato Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #autumn #harvest #soup #recipe

As soon as the weather guy mentioned the first cold front of autumn, I was ready for soup. I had started thinking about soup long before this, but it was still too warm to actually WANT soup, so I started stashing ingredients that would be good for soup in my fridge, hoping I’d actually use […]


Sausage & Pepper Potato Swirl Hash

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 […]


Italian Garlic Sausage & Potato Kabobs

Italian Garlic Sausage Potato Kabobs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sausage #kabob #grilled #bbq #recipe

with zucchini & bell pepper This is simply a German meal on a stick. With Italian Seasoning. Made in America. I have seen the idea of using sausages in kabobs and I thought it was ingenious. How superbly simple! It’s possibly my German heritage showing through, but if there are sausages, then I always seem […]


Shrimp & Andouille Quinoa Jambalaya

Shrimp & Andouille Quinoa Jambalaya ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Cajun #MardiGras #recipe

Adapted from my good friend Sonali, The Foodie Physician. It’s Mardi Gras time and my mind turns to Jambalaya! Oh yes, there’s gumbo and Red Beans and Rice (which I love as well), but I just always dream of Jambalaya and beads, tall red hurricane drinks and pretty masks whenever I hear Mardi Gras or New […]


Goodbye Garden Soup with Sausage

Goodbye Garden Soup with Sausage ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

This Goodbye Garden soup is a farewell to the gardens that have brought such beauty and deliciousness to my table this fall. It is always a bittersweet time, using up the last of the fresh bounty from the garden. There is really nothing better than fresh produce from the garden, but then again, gardens just […]


Farfalle Romesco with Sausage & Arugula

Farfalle Romesco with Sausage & Arugula ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pasta #recipe

When I discovered that marvelous Smoky Spanish Romesco Sauce, the first dish I thought of making with it was pasta, and even though I hear it is typically used with seafood in Spain, I wanted sausage with it. And wilty spinach and arugula, some sweet pepper slices and sauteed onions. And so that is exactly […]


Sausage & Pepper Stuffed Sweet Dumpling Squash

Sausage & Pepper Stuffed Sweet Dumpling Squash ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #squash #recipe

My sister brought me some beautiful treasures from her garden. She brought two of these adorable little squash that I totally labelled as gourds. She kept arguing with me that they were edible, and I stubbornly stuck to my stance that they were ornamental. You have to learn to stick your ground with me when […]


Curried Lentil Tomato Sausage Stew

Curried Lentil Tomato Sausage Stew ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #lentil #soup #recipe

I’ve been making soup like crazy the past few weeks, trying to use up my fresh garden things and fight off this virus that invaded my body. Last weekend was really bad … I was a complete energy void. I realized Sunday that if I was going to make it through the week, I needed […]
