Baked Butternut Brown Rice Risotto

Fresh sage and Asiago cheese really balance out the sweetness of the squash and the brown rice gives it a nutty taste, creating a savory, comforting, creamy rice dish that I just want to snuggle up with as the chill of December settles upon us. This risotto is baked to simplify the process … there’s just […]


Roasted Mushroom Kale Quinoa Salad

Roasted Mushroom Kale Quinoa Salad with blue cheese crumbles & toasted walnuts ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #mushroom #kale #quinoa

with blue cheese crumbles and toasted walnuts I wasn’t sure whether to call this a salad or a pilaf. I guess if you eat it cold, it’s a salad. If you eat it warm, it’s a pilaf, right? Or maybe it’s a skillet casserole? It can be a side dish … or a delicious meatless meal. […]


Heavenly Harvest Hash

My uncle is dying. He found out just a couple weeks ago. He has maybe a handful of days left, maybe two handfuls, but not many. Talking to my aunt, she is grateful for that, in a way, because it’s better to go fast than to lay suffering for years. Yes, I can see her […]


Mediterranean Beef Stuffed Squash

Mediterranean Beef Stuffed Summer Squash ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #stuffed #summer #squash #recipe

Stuffed squash with Greek-spiced meat, tomatoes, onions, peppers, breadcrumbs and a melted Italian blend of cheeses on top. It’s a bit like that marvelous Greek dish Moussaka, but stuffed into a summer squash rather than a layered eggplant dish. I have to apologize ahead of time because I didn’t write down the ingredients as I was […]


Rosemary Butternut Soup with Goat Cheese

It always floors me when something simple like this turns out to taste soooo good. I made this soup with some leftover rosemary roasted squash we made when in the process of creating the Butternut Bacon Macaroni & Cheese. I was so pleased at how wonderful this soup turned out: it has a soft, silky texture, […]

Butternut Bacon Macaroni & Cheese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pasta #recipe

with Rosemary, Smoked Gouda and Italian cheeses. Adapted from Cooking Light. A sophisticated, grown-up version of macaroni and cheese topped with a mixture of rosemary roasted butternut squash, sauteed onions and crispy bacon.

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 […]


Garden Fresh Fritatta w Bacon & a TFal Review

Garden Fresh Fritatta with Bacon ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fritatta #recipe

This frittata is just a great thing to make when you have a box full of garden veggies and a shiny new nonstick pan. I can never get enough of the taste of veggies, cheese and eggs. It’s getting close … my big cookware giveaway! I’m so excited and can’t wait to see which one […]


Pumpkin Swirl Bread with Pumpkin Maple Mascarpone

Pumpkin Cinnamon Swirl Bread with Pumpkin Maple Mascarpone Spread

My daughter, her friend and I went up to my friend’s lake house this weekend for a “girls” weekend. I wanted to bring along some fun “girly” things to eat, so I made up some chocolate mascarpone spread so we could make chocolate strawberry bruschetta, and while I was at it, I made a pumpkin […]
