Ann’s Amazing Chicken Tortilla Soup

Ann's Amazing Chicken Tortilla Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Mexican #chicken #soup #recipe

I have been in love with chicken tortilla soup forever it seems … the crunch of tortilla chips and dreamy melted cheese in a hot, spicy steamy chicken-laden broth with Mexican spices. Mmmmmm … I’ve made chicken tortilla soup before, but none that pleased me as well as this one. This one was even better than […]


Six-pepper Venison Chili with Beans

Six-Pepper Venison Chili with Beans ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spicy #homemade #chili #recipe

This chili recipe has been sitting in my backlog of blog posts for almost a month now. At work at Christmas-time, they sponsored a card-making session where they provided cards, stickers, markers, etc. and encouraged us to make cards to send to our soldiers in the field. I thought it would be fun to do […]


Biswa’s Winning Chicken Curry

Biswa's Winning Chicken Curry ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #amazing #chicken #curry #recipe

We had a little soup/chili competition at work a while ago and Biswa, one of my coworkers, brought this ah-mazing chicken curry … he won first prize at the competition. EVERYONE (and I mean every single person who tasted it!) was raving about it, so he wrote up and shared his recipe. The only problem […]


Spinach Bolognese Baked Eggs

Spinach Bolognese Baked Eggs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quick #healthy #breakfast #dinner #recipe

An easy, protein-rich and vitamin packed breakfast that fuels you up for whatever your morning might bring you. It’s meaty (if you use the Bolognese sauce) or vegetarian (if you use a veggie pasta sauce) and can be made gluten free (just make sure to use a gluten free pasta sauce). It’s comforting and warm and makes […]


Cheesy Chorizo Black Bean Queso Dip

Cheesy Chorizo Black Bean Queso Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Mexican #Queso #meaty #cheese #dip #recipe

A creamy, spicy, meaty Mexican-inspired cheese dip that will warm you inside and out. The name of this dip is redundant, I know. Queso means cheese, but the dip is all about cheese. It reminds me a bit of the cream cheese/salsa dip my ex-husband and I used to make. Or rather, he made it […]


Potato & Eggplant Curry

Potato & Eggplant Curry ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #vegetarian #curry #recipe

with coconut milk, cardamom and mint … Adapted from The Bojon Gourmet A hearty, meatless dish with comforting potatoes to balance out the exotic spices in the curried coconut sauce and meaty roasted eggplant. Serve with yogurt if you need to tame it a little. I would typically serve a curry like this over basmati rice … we had it […]


Creole Chicken & Sausage Skillet

Creole Chicken & Sausage Skillet ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #creole #stirfry #dinner #recipe

An easy, spicy skillet dish you can cook up quickly when you’re in the mood for some good hot creole home cooking. It started from our Mr. Rife Chicken recipe … my kids love me to make Mr. Rife Chicken for them, but then they only eat the chicken and I am left with the rest […]


Sriracha Parmesan Heirloom Tomato Soup

Sriracha Parmesan Heirloom Tomato Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #tomato #soup #recipe

It’s been beautifully sunny this month, but today it’s raining outside and chilly … total soup weather.  I am wishing I had saved some of this vibrant tomato soup I made when I had a huge box of tomatoes from my mom’s garden. The heirloom tomatoes were sooo ripe, I needed to find a good use […]


Bacon Goat Cheese Heirloom Tomato Galette

Bacon Goat Cheese Heirloom Tomato Galette ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #savory #tomato #pie #recipe

I have been working on this recipe for a while … the cheese mixture I had down on the first try. It was the crust I struggled with. First I tried it with a phyllo pastry crust, but the crust was too dry. I am not sure what I did wrong … I’ve had good […]


Hurts so Good 3-Pepper Heirloom Salsa

Hurts so Good 3-Pepper Heirloom Tomato Salsa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spicy #hot #salsa #recipe

Mixing three hot peppers along with low-acid heirloom tomatoes makes for a hot, spicy salsa that lingers on your tongue, clears out your sinuses and yes, hurts just a little (in a good sort of way). You can adjust up or down the amount of peppers that you use to control the heat to your […]


Pesto Eggplant Parmesan Grilled Cheese

Pesto Eggplant Parmesan Grilled Cheese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #vegetarian #eggplant #sandwich #recipe

Eggplant Parmesan is a divine dish even for eggplant haters, but it is typically loaded with fat from frying the eggplant and then putting sauce and loads of cheese on top. It takes a bit of work, too, to do all that. This sandwich is superb simplicity. It’s eggplant parmesan without all the work. Even […]


Hot Pepper Harissa Bean & Veggie Stew

Hot Pepper Harissa Bean & Veggie Stew ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spicy #vegetable #stew #recipe

I had never met Harissa until I read Ally’s cookbook. This woman seriously has an incredible repertoire of flavors from all over the world. There is an entire chapter dedicated to some very intriguing spices and Harissa was one of them. I took one look and knew I had to try it. From North Africa, […]


Garden Harvest Breakfast Bowl

Garden Harvest Breakfast Bowl ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #baked #egg #breakfast #recipe

This lovely breakfast is a little “nest” made out of grilled (or roasted) harvest veggies, with an egg baked in the middle, topped with a bit of cheese. You can add breakfast meat such as breakfast sausage or a bit of bacon if you like, too, but to me, it’s not needed. The fresh garden […]


Slow Roasted Cherry Tomatoes Preserved in Olive Oil

Slow Roasted Cherry Tomatoes Preserved in Olive Oil ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #tomato #preservation #recipe

Adapted slightly from Heartbeat Kitchen A couple weekends ago I visited my sister and she had one cherry tomato plant that was absolutely exploding with tomatoes. She had so many that she didn’t have a clue what to do with them all … and asked if I would take some. Of course I obliged … […]


Grilled Zucchini Corn Salsa

Grilled Zucchini Corn Salsa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #smoky #grilled #salsa #recipe

Allow me to introduce you to my latest obsession … actually, I already introduced you, but I fear you may not have noticed because I made the introduction as a topping for another dish, and I have to apologize for that. This beautiful grilled salsa is finding its way into so many crevasses in my life that […]


Ricotta Stuffed Tomatoes

Ricotta Stuffed Tomatoes ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #summer #tomato #recipe

Inspired by Cooking on a Budget As soon as I saw these cheese-stuffed tomatoes from Cooking on a Budget, I knew I had to try them. And today turned out to be the most opportune time for it. Today I had to drive 5 hours to retrieve my daughter. I am fortunate that her friend’s mom […]


Eggplant & Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta

Roasted Eggplant & Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #summer #tomato #appetizer #recipe

Bruschetta is one of my very favorite summertime snacks (or rather, meals. as a few of these little toasts is a complete meal for me). I make bruschetta as soon as I have a couple freshly ripe tomatoes from the garden and then over and over and over again throughout the late summer tomato season, savoring […]


Greek Rice Salad

Greek Rice Salad Recipe ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Mediterranean #Rice #Salad #Healthy #Glutenfree

Adapted from Healthy Recipes This is a recipe someone shared on my facebook page … and I was intrigued. One night when my daughter was cooking up some rice for another dish, I said to her “let’s make a double batch … I have a recipe I want to try” … and we did. I […]


Cilantro Pesto Fish Tacos w/Zucchini Corn Salsa

Cilantro Pesto Fish Tacos with Roasted Zucchini Corn Salsa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fish #taco #quickeasydinner #recipe

I know what you’re thinking: the fish in this picture are GREEN! Why yes, they are. A vibrant, beautiful green because the fish fillets are rubbed in an oh-so-green Cilantro Almond pesto, then baked with extra nuts and cheese and some fresh cherry tomatoes on top, roasted to juicy perfection. The fish on its own is […]


Rosemary’s Garden Yoghurt Party Dip

Rosemary's Garden Yoghurt Party Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #herb #spinach #artichoke #dip #recipe

My fridge is still overflowing with Noosa yoghurt, partly from the shipment that I recently received from the kind folks there, and partly because we loved it so much that we had to run out and buy more of the flavors we’d already fallen in love with, even before we’ve finished trying the rest of the […]


BBQ Pulled Pork Cobb Salad

BBQ Pulled Pork Cobb Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #barbecue #pork #dinner #salad #recipe

Here’s a pretty striped salad with a BBQ twist … it’s got all the fixins from a classic BBQ: the pulled pork, the baked beans, and the corn, along with greens, cheese, tomato, sweet red pepper and avocado. It’s a fun and healthy way to enjoy leftover pulled pork. And I have a few dressing options for your: Smoky […]


Brazilian Thai Fusion Fish Stew with Zucchini

Brazilian Thai Fusion Fish Stew ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #zucchini #fusion #fish #stew #recipe

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 […]


Bacon Zucchini Asiago Fresco Frittata & a Black Cube Product Review

Bacon Zucchini Asiago Fresco Frittata and a Black Cube Frying Pan Product Review ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #egg #brunch #recipe & #productreview

It has felt like Christmas in July at my house the past couple days. I’ve had a few different people contact me asking if I’d like to try their products. I love times like this–it makes all the work of the blog seem a little more worthwhile. Not that it isn’t a joy to do […]


The Mothership Tomato Salad

The Mothership Tomato Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Tomato #Salad #Recipe from #jamieoliver

Adapted from Jamie Oliver’s The Mothership Tomato Salad I have been saving this beauty of a recipe for you for ages, it seems. Last October, yes, it was October, that I made this salad. Everyone was in pumpkin/back to school/Halloween mode … and me, I was trying to make the best use of the last beautiful […]
