Rainbow Fruit & Spinach Salad

Rainbow Fruit & Spinach Salad w Honey Ginger Lime Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #salad #recipe

with Honey Ginger Lime Dressing A rainbow of fruit (strawberries, mangoes, pineapple, red grapes and blueberries) served over a bed of spinach with crunchy toasted walnuts, creamy goat cheese and a honey ginger lime dressing. This salad came about because I suggested for my daughter’s birthday party that we make fruit kebabs. And she loved that […]


Maple Strawberry Chocolate Chip Waffles

Maple Strawberry Chocolate Chip Waffles ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #decadent #breakfast #recipe #waffles

My teenage daughter made these beautiful waffles last weekend. We had strawberries so she decided to slice some up for her waffle and look at this beautiful presentation! She made her waffle look like a spring flower. Her waffle looked so pretty that we decided we should take pictures. This waffle recipe is one that she makes […]


4th of July Fruit Kebabs with Dipping Sauces

Fourth of July Red White & Blue Fruit Kebabs with dipping sauces

After the rainbow fruit kebabs we made for my daughter’s birthday, my daughter and I thought it would be fun to do a 4th of July version with red, white and blue. We were having trouble figuring out what to use for the white, though. Are there white fruits? I suppose you could use apples […]


Red, White, & Blueberry Salad

Red, White & Blueberry Salad with Goat Cheese & Toasted Pinons

with Goat Cheese, Pinons, and a Honey Ginger Lime Yogurt Dressing My foodie friend Justine over at Full Belly Sisters has been making red, white and blue foods like crazy lately … which got me thinking … I need to make a red, white and blue salad! It’s been in my head for a week, waiting […]


Very Berry Basil Wine Spritzer

Very Berry Basil Wine Spritzer

Soooo I found another use for that wonderful Very Berry Syrup from the Very Berry Italian Cream Sodas. Add it to a little white wine with some club soda and it makes a really nice refreshing spritzer. The thing that makes this magic is really the syrup, which has two kinds of berries and a […]


No-cook Strawberry Chia Jam {a Berrylicious Post}

No-Cook Strawberry Chia Jam

I found this recipe on the blog Eating Bird Food and I was so intrigued by it. Could you really make jam without cooking, with no pectin and no sugar? Yes, you can! The chia seeds work so well as a thickener and they don’t need to be cooked at all; they just start thickening as […]


Baked Strawberry Walnut Quinoa Bites

Baked Strawberry Quinoa Walnut Bites

I’ve been intrigued with the idea of baking with quinoa for a while now, so when I stumbled across this pretty muffin recipe from Poor Girl Eats Well, I really wanted to try it. They turned out a little differently what I expected, though, which is why I’m not calling them muffins. When I think of […]


Almond Berry Granola

Almond Berry Granola

I don’t know what it is with me and breakfasts lately … all my posts seem to be about breakfast. Oh well, breakfast is important. What you eat in the morning sets the tone for your day, so you should make it good. Granola is the perfect breakfast on mornings when you’re in a rush. […]


Baked Strawberry Rhubarb French Toast for Mom

Strawberry Rhubarb Baked French Toast with Mascarpone Cheese

My mom loves strawberries. I know this because I remember, as a child, she always wanted one of her kids to go to Dairy Queen with her on Mother’s Day to get her free sundae. And she ALWAYS got a strawberry sundae. So I always ALWAYS think of strawberries on Mother’s Day. My mom doesn’t […]


Maple Ginger Fruit Crostini with Basil

Maple Ginger Fruit Crostini with Fresh Basil

It’s a dreary, wet morning in South Dakota. Everything is very green and growing fast … I need to get out and pull weeds and tend my little garden. And I have some MORE grocery shopping to do … but first, I think we need a little color to brighten the day.  Just looking at […]


Rainbow Symphony Fruit Salad with Walnuts & Feta

Rainbow Fruit Salad on Wild Greens with Toasted Walnuts & Feta Cheese

on Wild Greens with a Honey Citrus Poppyseed Dressing We made rainbow fruit kebabs for my daughter’s birthday party. Both of her parties, in fact (one for her school friends, one for her dance friends). The second party was smaller, so now my fridge is filled with fruit. Fruit in literally all the colors of […]


Strawberry Chrysanthemum Salad

Strawberry Chrysanthemum Salad with Blue Cheese & Cinnamon Pecans

with Blue Cheese, Cinnamon Pecans and Mixed Berry Vinaigrette I’m fascinated with edible flowers right now …  last week I found a list of 42 edible flowers … and realized I had another edible flower literally on my front doorstep. My mom brought me a mum from her garden. A confused mum. Chrysanthemums are supposed […]


Double Berry Cinnamon Swirl Sleepover Cake

Double Berry Swirl Sleepover Cake

It’s the morning after my girl’s 13th birthday party. The house is so still and quiet. Two of the girls had to get up early to go to church. It was a challenge rousing the first one. The second one got up with only one “wakeup call”, and a third came upstairs shortly after that, […]


Rainbow Fruit Kebabs

Rainbow Fruit Kebabs

My daughter had a sleepover birthday party last night. We like to have at least one healthy food at her birthday parties … and it usually involves fruit. This year I suggested rainbow fruit kebabs. My girl wasn’t too excited about the idea until I showed her a picture. Then she was sold. These were […]


Double Chocolate Banana-Berry Bites

Double Chocolate Banana Berry Bites

This is my favorite banana bread recipe, chocolatized. With strawberries. My daughter didn’t want me to go there. But the chocolate fiend in me just couldn’t help it. I was so intrigued with making a chocolate strawberry muffin-ette … I just HAD to have them. I made my daughter some of our regular chocolate chip banana […]


Basil-Infused Strawberry Peach Sangria

Strawberry Peach Sangria with Peach Basil Syrup

I suddenly had the urge to make some peach sangria yesterday and we were headed to my friend’s house for dinner. It seemed like the perfect thing to bring to go with our barbecue on an unseasonably warm spring night. We had chile lime burgers and chicken drumsticks, salad, strawberries and sangria on the patio. […]


Summer Berry Salads

Mulberries

Picking berries has got to be one of the quintessential activities of summer for me. For us, it starts with the strawberries and the mulberries, then the raspberries. I revel in them. There is something so incredibly wonderful about gathering these delicious morsels of food from nature. This year we went on vacation in late […]
