Strawberry Lemonade Slushies

Strawberry Lemonade Slushies ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #drink #recipe for both #adults #kids

both Adult and Kid-friendly versions On 4th of July weekend, I went to visit my family at my mom and dad’s lake house. It was a typical summer weekend at the lake: there was swimming, boating, fishing, and lots of drinking. I made strawberry margaritas for the adults and then the kids wanted something too […]


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 […]


Strawberry Rhubarb Upside Down Cake

Strawberry Rhubarb Upside Down Cake ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #summer #fruity #caramel #cake #recipe

Adapted from Eating Well A gorgeous fruity cake, with a pretty design on top and an ooey gooey caramel sauce that forms by itself on the bottom of the pan. When you flip it over, all that gorgeous caramel drips down over the fruit and the cake and it tastes just like heaven. I love the way […]


Hawaiian Lava Flow Cocktail

Hawaiian Lava Flow Cocktail ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #frozen #tropical #Hawaiian #cocktail #recipe

My friend Melissa from ChinDeep turned me on to this cocktail. She messaged me on facebook and asked me if I’d tried it … so I googled it and found loads of images of beautiful tropical fruity cocktails. I was mesmerized … must. try. this. drink! I’m so glad I’ve made it to my weight […]


Strawberry Rhubarb Bread Pudding Cups

Strawberry Rhubarb Bread Pudding Cups ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert for #breakfast #muffins

A long, long time ago, I asked a friend what she wanted me to make her as a treat for her birthday. She said she wanted bread pudding, but not a fancy bread pudding, she wanted a plain bread pudding. She was very specific about this. “What?” I said … “I can’t add any fruit? […]


Strawberry Surprise Cupcakes

Strawberry Surprise Cupcakes ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fresh #strawberry #cupcakes #recipe

I made these cupcakes ages ago for my niece ages ago for her birthday, but I didn’t take any pictures. They were so popular with everyone that they disappeared in a flash. My kids secured a promise from me that I would make them for them again. My son asked me to make them again […]


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 […]


Ricotta Dumplings with Mixed Berry Sauce #DoleRose

Ricotta Dumplings with Raspberry Strawberry Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #breakfast #dessert #dumpling #recipe #DoleRose

It’s almost time for the New Year’s Rose Parade and although I will be freezing my butt off here at home in the chilly midwest, I’m excited to be virtually participating in this year’s event with my good friend Ally Phillips (from Ally’s Kitchen), Dole packaged foods, Finn Partners public relations agency and HQ marketing agency. […]


Very Berry Ice Cream Float

Very Berry Ice Cream Float ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #icecream #float #recipe

July is National Ice Cream Month. Normally, I’m not a “drink my calories” kinda gal, but every once in a while, you gotta give in and have a summer treat, especially when we’re right in the middle of National Ice Cream Month and the temperatures outside are soaring. We’ve been very lucky this summer. Temperatures have […]


Mixed Berry Dessert Nachos

Mixed Berry Dessert Nachos ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #redwhite&blue #easy #dessert #recipe

I am doing a Mexican cooking class today at work. Cooking is not my job, but I do these for fun for my coworkers, once a month (or so), at lunchtime. The company reimburses me for the cost of the food. It’s a lot of work and I don’t get paid for it, but I […]


Strawberry Rhubarb Margarita

Strawberry Rhubarb Margarita ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cocktail #recipe

There are lots of contrasting flavors in this margarita.  Strawberries, rhubarb, lime and tequila … it’s a match made in heaven, right? I just couldn’t help myself. After my daughter used up all the first batch of Strawberry Rhubarb Simple Syrup on her Italian cream sodas, I just HAD to make another batch so I […]


The Rhubarb Rose Cocktail

The Rhubarb Rose Cocktail ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls#rhubarb #strawberry #cream #cocktail #recipe

I don’t know what’s come over me … normally, I’m not much of a “cocktail” kinda gal. I pretty much stick to beer and wine–they are both predictable and consistent and leave you feeling about the same way after you drink them. No surprises. But this year, I don’t know why …  I just have […]


Strawberry Rhubarb Mojitos

Strawberry Rhubarb Mojito ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #mint #rum #cocktail #recipe

A refreshing summer cocktail which pleasantly mingles the tastes of tart rhubarb, fresh strawberry, mint, rum and lime. It’s sublime! Here’s a little story on how this beauty of a cocktail came to be: My daughter and I make Italian cream sodas every summer. Each summer I try to devise a new flavor for us […]


Strawberry Rhubarb Baked Oatmeal

Strawberry Rhubarb Baked Oatmeal ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #strawberry #rhubarb #breakfast #dessert #recipe

I love everything rhubarb, but still my first taste of rhubarb every year surprises me as I immediately sink into a puddle of rhubarb love. Especially when paired with strawberries and pecans and oats, I could eat nothing but this all day long and there would be a silly grin on my face the whole time. […]


Strawberry Banana Pecan Baked Oatmeal

Strawberry Banana Pecan Baked Oatmeal ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #sweet #glutenfree #breakfast #recipe

I had a bunch of strawberries in my fridge and a few over-ripe bananas on my counter, so I decided to put them to good use and make me (and my friends) some good breakfast. It turned out just as I had thought it would. Warm, comforting, fruity, with just the right amount of crunch from the […]


Tequila Rose Strawberry Cream Truffles

Tequila Rose Strawberry Cream Truffles ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #homemade #molded #truffles #recipe

Oh you guys, it’s getting close to time for our semi-annual Wine & Design event and I’ve got a bazillion yummies lined up for it! I’ve been chocolatizing everything in sight lately, it seems. But these … these little babies are a close-your-eyes-because-you’re-going-to-want-to-totally-savor-every-moment-of-chocolate-strawberry-cream-bliss goodness. If you want to attempt these at home, they are a little […]


Chicken Strawberry Salad w/Goat Cheese

Chicken Strawberry Salad w/Goat Cheese & Roasted Strawberry Vinaigrette ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chicken #strawberry #salad #recipe

and Roasted Strawberry Lemon Vinaigrette Hurrah it’s spring! It doesn’t feel very spring-like here right now, but a week ago it did. The stores are tempting us with loads of springtime treasures … there are strawberries a-plenty and, although they are not exactly local strawberries (because let’s face it, it might technically be spring here, but there […]


Mixed Berry Bread Pudding

Mixed Berry Bread Pudding ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #berry #dessert #recipe

with Drunken Limoncello Berry Sauce I have been on a de-cluttering mission lately, so I cleaned out my freezer in my fridge yesterday. I discovered that I had several partially used containers of frozen berries as well as some freezer jam that we’d totally forgotten about. I decided those precious berries and jam needed to be used up right […]

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. […]


Strawberry Rhubarb Wine Ice Cream

Strawberry Rhubarb Wine Ice Cream ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #icecream #recipe

A lower fat ice cream adapted from Cooking Light I’ve been fascinated with the idea of wine ice cream for quite a while now … I read it was a hot food trend a while back (who knows how long ago–there is no timeline in my mind that keeps track of when I saw this […]


Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble Mini-Pies

Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble Mini-Pies ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #bite-size #dessert #recipe

Before we get started talkin’ pie, don’t forget to enter the $100 cookware giveaway! It ends July 1. The other day I was going through my fridge, finding things that need to be tossed and things that need to be used ASAP and I ran across some wonton wrappers. They were in the “better use […]
