Adapted from White on Rice Couple A super simple little appetizer that’s beautiful, elegant and tastes amazing. It’s perfect with a glass of wine at the end of a hard day, or to serve to guests when you have little time to prepare. It was a long day today. I woke up early and decided to […]

Cheesy Crab & Spinach Crostini ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #little #toasts #appetizer #recipe #seafood

Inspired by Bobbi’s Kozy Kitchen This is a super easy, super elegant appetizer that you can put together in minutes … and you might even have (at least some of) the ingredients on hand in  your pantry or freezer. I’ve been dying to try these little toasts ever since I saw Bobbi’s Kozy Kitchen post her shrimp […]

Maple Strawberry Rhubarb Grilled Cheese Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sweet #fruit #sandwich #recipe

Adapted from Roti n Rice I’ve been wanting to make a strawberry grilled cheese sandwich for ages it seems, since I saw a brie and strawberry sandwich and I thought it sounded SO good. I actually used to have some Brie, but I took it up to my mom and dad’s, intending to try something […]

Pan Seared Winter Bruschetta with Goat Cheese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #tasteofsummer #recipe

We’ve hit the doldrums of winter here … that time of year when everyone is just yearning for spring and every snowstorm and chilly day makes us grumpy. Perhaps we just need a little taste of summer to liven up our dreary midwinter lives. Why can’t we have bruschetta in the midst of a cold, gray […]

Swiss Berry Blue Grilled Cheese Sandwiches ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #grilled cheese #sandwich

It’s my 2nd Blogiversary and I’m having a “Yeah Toast!” party on facebook, so I thought I really ought to post a good toast recipe today to go with the theme of the party. Why toast? Well, besides that I love toast, on Friday, one of my work friends shared this song with me and […]


Basil Goat Cheese Stuffed Sweet Peppers

Basil Goat Cheese Stuffed Sweet Peppers ~ from Sumptuous Spoonfuls #stuffed #peppers #recipe

Inspired by Mia’s Domain I just discovered I’ve been dreaming of making these peppers since last March when Mia’s Domain posted her lovely stuffed peppers. I was entranced with the way she did her “before” and “after” photo all in one … I had plans to try something similar, but that photo idea didn’t quite work out … […]


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 […]


Baba Crostini

Baba Crostini

This is a super simple, but super fun and delicious recipe. You can make this up as a big sandwich if you like too, using a bun or a ciabatta roll instead of the toasts. I did that for lunch one day with ciabatta and totally loved it. I was originally going to post this […]


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 […]


Chocolate Dessert Crostini with Banana & Walnut

Chocolate Dessert Crostini with Banana and Toasted Walnuts

I was in dire need of some sumptuous chocolate today … and didn’t have much time … so I whipped up some chocolate crostini  … so yes I confess, I did just make up a fancy name for “chocolate ganache frosting on toast” … but we’re talking about that dreamy whipped chocolate ganache I made […]


Asparagus on Green Garlic Crostini

Asparagus on Green Garlic Crostini

It’s spring! Everything is turning green … that means it’s time for my favorite spring vegetables. Like asparagus. And spinach. I’m in heaven whenever I can have fresh asparagus and spinach from the garden. And this year I have one more wonderful thing to harvest from the “garden” … garlic. I snagged a couple clumps […]


Tulip & Violet Salad with Salmon Cucumber Toasts

Tulip & Wild Violet Salad with Salmon Blue Cheese Cucumber Toast

a.k.a., Tiptoe through the Tulips with Me Salad I have been wondering what beautiful blossoms in my yard are edible? There must be something besides dandelions and wild violets … So I did a little research and it turns out there is a reason the deer chomp off the tulip blossoms so quickly … they’re […]


Raspberry Salmon Havarti Toast with Wild Greens

Raspberry Salmon Havarti Toast with Wild Greens

Do you recognize those “wild” greens? Today is National Weed Appreciation Day and you know what? I really appreciate my weeds. Oh some of them are a pain, literally, like the thistles and the cockleburrs that I just can’t seem to get under control, but the dandelions and wild violets that sprout up all over […]


Smoked Gouda Avocado Breakfast Bruschetta

Smoked Gouda Avocado Breakfast Toast

It’s one of those mornings when I can’t get my daughter out of bed. And she’s feeling dizzy this morning, so dizzy she doesn’t want to go to school. I hate it when I have to tell her to go to school when she’s feeling this way. But she’s not sick, and she’s missed too […]
