Inspired by Dizzy Busy & Hungry and my own kitchen meanderings Over the 4th of July we visited my sister and her husband who live on a lake in Minnesota. They both love to fish, so they always have an over-abundance of fish. Of course we had a huge fish fry on Saturday (which is always the highlight […]


Crockpot Creamy Christmas Posole

Crockpot Creamy Christmas Posole ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #posole #soup #recipe

If you’ve ever been to New Mexico at Christmastime, you have probably experienced Posole.  It’s that magical pork-hominy stew that everyone serves during this season, along with tamales and luminarias (candles in paper bags that they line the streets and walkways with).

Lentil-Eggplant-Mole-Stew2

It’s September and stew is on my mind. Usually when people think of stew, I think they think of meat, but I have found I don’t need meat to make a good hearty stew. If you throw a few beans in with some vegies and spices, you end up with something that is not only […]


Mahogany “Beef” Stew with Red Wine & Purple Potatoes

Mahogany Beef Stew with Red Wine and Purple Potatoes

Is it starting to feel more like fall for you yet? I notice it in the air here … chillier evenings, brisk mornings, a few leaves are falling already. And in the fall, I think of stews and soups and hearty warm dishes … so I know it’s still August, but the weather is telling […]


Lebanese Eggplant, Sausage, and Chickpea Stew

Lebanese Eggplant, Sausage, and Chickpea Stew

What vegetable is more beautiful than an eggplant? I revel in the color and beauty of all vegetables, but really, in my opinion, the eggplant is the Aphrodite of vegetables. She is the vegetable goddess of beauty–royal purple, elegant, and oh so tasty. This Lebanese eggplant dish is supposed to be a vegetarian dish. At least […]
