Lemon Garlic Butter Chicken ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #chicken #recipe

Adapted just slightly from Moore or Less Cooking The other night my kids were wanting chicken, but we couldn’t make our go-to recipe easy honey Teriyaki chicken because we were out of honey … what to do?

Zoodles with Parmesan Mushroom Meatballs

Zoodles with Vegetarian Parmesan Mushroom Meatballs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #meatless #meatballs #recipe

Adapted slightly from Cooktoria A healthy, delicious meatless dish made from mushrooms, zucchini (ok, I used yellow squash), and a bit of cheese and breadcrumbs that is surprisingly convincing at masquerading as the “real” thing. Meatballs made of mushrooms? Yes, I went there. Yes, if you pay close attention, you will be able to tell there really […]

Creamy yet healthy, this turkey wild rice soup transforms leftovers into a dreamy hot bowl of comfort and deliciousness.

Corned Beef & Cabbage Stew

Corned Beef & Cabbage Stew ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cornedbeef #cabbage #potato #stew #recipe

Adapted from Family Fresh Meals I recently made a great big hunk of corned venison. Corned venison tastes very much like corned beef, really, so don’t be too concerned if you don’t have venison in your life. A good corned beef will work just fine in this recipe. (Corned venison, is, however, much leaner and healthier, […]

Adapted slightly from Cooking on the Ranch who got the recipe from The Unorthodox Epicure (I am sad that I cannot locate his version of the recipe!)

Slow Cooker Spiced Pulled Pork in Wine ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pulledpork #crockpot #recipe

I’m doing the food for a food and wine tasting event this week and we decided the theme this month is spring salads. I gave my wine store friend a selection of salads to choose from and one of the salads he chose was my BBQ Pulled Pork Cobb Salad. Good choice! That salad is hearty, full of […]

German Onion Soup {Zwiebelsuppe}

German Onion Soup {Zwiebelsuppe} ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #German #onion #soup #recipe

The blonde cousin of French Onion Soup, this German Onion Soup (or Zwiebelsuppe as they would say in Germany) uses chicken or vegetable broth rather than beef broth and the subtle flavors of nutmeg and thyme to provide a touch of intrigue. Topped as most onion soups are with toasted bread and melty white cheese, this soup is […]

Triple A Dip (Avocado Asiago & Artichoke)

Triple A Dip (Avocado Asiago & Artichoke) ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dip #recipe

I’ve had the munchies something fierce the past couple days. I have just wanted something crunchy, salty, something to take my mind off things, to quell this nervous energy that is coursing my veins. It’s been a strange week. Weird things are happening to the people around me, reminding me that the small problems I […]


Roasted Eggplant & Tomato Soup with Fresh Herbs

Roasted Eggplant & Tomato Soup with Fresh Herbs & Goat Cheese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #tomato #soup #recipe

This is a treasured soup for me … I have made it before (in similar form), but last time I made it I used yellow tomatoes and cream. I immediately fell in love with the taste of the soup, but the yellow tomatoes didn’t do it justice. This soup needs red tomatoes to give it […]


Super Simple Cheesy Chicken Artichoke Dip

Super Simple Cheesy Chicken Artichoke Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dip #recipe

There are times when you need a little simplicity. I’ve been having that sort of life for the past several weeks as we try to squeeze in appointments, last-minute summer vacations, and work in the midst of getting the kids ready for high school and college. This dip was one of those … I found […]


Lucky Bucket Pot Roast with Baby Bellas

Lucky Bucket Pot Roast with Baby Bellas ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pot roast #recipe

Impossibly Creamy Baked Sausage Mac n Cheese

Impossibly Creamy Cauliflower Sausage Mac &- Cheese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #macaroni & #cheese #recipe

Adapted slightly from Momtastic who adapted her recipe from Mark Bittman. The creamy cheese sauce on this macaroni & cheese is made with a very surprising ingredient.

Cheesy Beef n Rice Stuffed Mini-Peppers

Feta Beef n Rice Stuffed Mini Peppers ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #stuffed #pepper #recipe

This recipe was shared at Melt in your Mouth Monday. I was in the middle of baking these pretty little stuffed peppers when my daughter came upstairs and announced she was hungry. Of course she wanted a pizza, so I told her I’d put it in for her once my peppers were done. I took the […]


Herbed Pepper Havarti Egg in a Hole with Bacon

Herbed Havarti & Sweet Pepper Egg in a Hole with Bacon

What’s better for a rainy Sunday breakfast than homemade bread perfectly toasted, a runny egg, melted Havarti cheese, with fresh vegies and herbs and a bit of bacon to top it off? It’s a lazy, rainy Sunday morning (rain, in January? … odd but true). I tried to convince my kids to go out for […]


Herbed Tomato White Cheddar Soup

Herbed Tomato White Cheddar Soup with Grilled Cheese on the Side

Oven roasting the tomatoes gives this soup a rich tomato flavor. The tart acidity of the tomato is rounded out with fresh herbs, garlic, cream, roasted onion and white cheddar cheese. Then, if you like, top it all off with an open-faced grilled cheese sandwich (french onion style!) or some grilled cheese “croutons”. I want […]
