Garden Harvest Moussaka

Garden Harvest Moussaka {Greek Lasagna} ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #layered #Greek #hotdish #recipe

A hearty, meaty, comforting layered casserole with enticing spices, Moussaka is the Greek version of lasagna. I lighten mine up and make it a little easier to make as well by using yogurt whisked with some eggs to make the bechamel sauce for the top. Moussaka tastes like home to me … it’s a dish […]

Slow Cooker Drunken Irish Stew

Slow Cooker Drunken Irish Stew ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Guinness #Irish #Stew #Recipe

I made this stew by request … I was discussing with my friend Seth at The Little Cellar Wine Company what recipes to feature in March for our monthly “wine and food tasting” event and he strongly suggested an Irish Stew. I could see the twinkle in his eye … that this was something he really […]


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 […]


Beef Rouladen

Beef Rouladen (German Pickle & Bacon Stuffed Beef Rolls) ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #German #dinner #recipe

German Beef Rolls Stuffed with Mustard, Pickles & Bacon in a Beer Gravy … adapted slightly from Quick German Recipes Who else but the Germans would think of stuffing a roll of meat with mustard, pickles and bacon? This is the entree I made for our German cooking class. I was totally intrigued from the […]


Cheese Stuffed Zucchini Herb Meatballs

Cheese Stuffed Zucchini Herb Meatballs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #meatball #recipe

I decided to have a big hurrah to say goodbye to summer … I took Thursday afternoon and Friday off so I could go up to visit my parents before the weekend started, since I had other plans for the rest of the weekend. While I was there, my cousin texted and asked if he […]


Crockpot Za’atar Pot Roast

Crockpot Za'atar Pot Roast ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #slowcooker #easy #beef or #venison #roast #recipe

I made this super simple roast for dinner for me and my two almost-adult-like children one day to go with our pillow biscuits. It’s a versatile recipe that you can use for the main course of a dinner, for the meat and au jus for a Philly Cheesesteak sandwich, or for a delicious meaty addition […]


Pedernales River Chili

Pedernales River Chili ~ Lyndon B Johnson's favorite chili recipe ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #presidential #meaty #chili #recipe

This meaty chili was Lyndon B Johnson’s favorite. My dad made it, and told me how good it was, and had me taste it. Now, I’m not normally a “meaty” chili kinda person–I tend to stray over towards the ones with beans and loads of veggies, not that I have anything AGAINST meat per se, […]


Asian Ginger Garlic Zucchini Beef Sliders

Asian Garlic Zucchini Beef Sliders ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sliders #recipe

Highly adapted from All Recipes. These little munchie burger-lings are a little deceiving … they look like hamburgers … and so they are … but they have all the flavors of Asia packed inside them, plus a couple veggies hiding inside there. They have a touch of spicy heat, garlic, and freshly grated ginger. The […]


Blue Cheese & Spinach Venison Burgers

Blue Cheese & Spinach Venison Burgers ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #burger #recipe

We had a pre-4th of July potluck barbecue cookout last week at work. Because we have so much meat in our freezer, I signed up to bring burgers. Then I was faced with how to season the meat. I made two flavors and this one was my personal favorite. I saved enough meat to make […]


Pepper Jack Potroast Nachos

Pepperjack Potroast Nachos ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Nachos #Recipe

Sometimes on a snowy night in April, the drive home on the slippery streets frazzles your nerves. By the time you pull into the garage, you are so tense you say to your daughter “I need a beer.” She looks at the clock and says “It’s after 6:00, you’re entitled.” You know you should go […]


Greek Pastitio (Meaty Macaroni w Creamy Bechamel)

Greek Pastitio ~ Macaroni wrapped in a Meaty Spiced Tomato Sauce with Creamy Parmesan Bechamel on top ~ from Sumptuous Spoonfuls

Macaroni  nestled in a meaty Greek-spiced tomato sauce with a creamy Parmesan Bechamel sauce on top. Also spelled Pasticcio. I hear that Pastitio is the Greek spelling, while Pasticcio is the Italian spelling. I’m not Greek or Italian, so I’m not quite sure what the “correct” spelling is and I’m sure I don’t make it […]

Irish Ale Corned Beef & Butter Braised Cabbage with Bacon Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes & Gravy ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #corned #beef #recipe

with a drizzle of Irish ale gravy Every year for St. Patrick’s Day I make Corned Beef and Cabbage. I just enjoy celebrating St. Patty’s Day. It’s such a fun holiday. My kids have grown up with this tradition, and I try to do it every year on March 17. There have been times when […]


Green Chile Cheeseburger Soup

Green Chile Cheeseburger Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheeseburger #soup #recipe

Green Chile Cheeseburgers are one of the delicacies you might come across if you visit New Mexico. I highly recommend them … especially if you happen to find yourself at the original Owl Cafe south of Albuquerque. You may want to make a special trip just for said cheeseburger … I’m just sayin’ … … […]


Beef, Bean, Barley & Sweet Pepper Soup

Beef, Bean, Barley, & Sweet Pepper Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #beef #soup #recipe

A good hearty colorful winter soup that’s healthy, full of flavor, fiber, protein and antioxidants.

BBQ Beef Avocado Sweet Pepper Salad with Cilantro Marmalade Vinaigrette ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #beef #salad #recipe

with a Cilantro Marmalade Vinaigrette Whenever I make a good meat dish and I have some leftover, I always want to make it into a really really good salad. There is nothing better than a good hearty salad with lots of flavor  in my book. It has such a satisfying mix of textures and tastes […]


Outta the Park Crockpot BBQ Beef Sandwiches

Outa the Park Shredded BBQ Beef Sandwiches ~ from Sumptuous Spoonfuls #BBQ #Beef #Recipe

When Beth from Outta the Park Barbecue Sauce contacted me and asked if she could send me some samples of her barbecue sauce to try, I have to admit I was a little worried. You might think that is an odd reaction, but my kids are the main barbecue sauce consumers at my house and […]


Spicy Asian Ginger Meatballs

Asian Ginger Party Meatballs ~ from Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Asian #Ginger #Meatball #Recipe

Meatballs with some serious taste! Garlic and ginger come together in a sweet, slightly spicy Asian sauce to create a flavor sensation. I made these for my first blog-iversary party last summer and, although my guests really liked all the recipes, these meatballs were the biggest hit. My friends were asking me if the recipe […]


Mexican Porcupine Meatballs

Porcupine Meatballs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #meatballs #rice #recipe

You use uncooked rice in these meatballs, so when they cook up, there are little sticks of rice poking out. They actually kind of look like porcupines … I thought they were so cute! I made these meatballs because my mom and dad were going hunting and they needed to make room in their freezer […]


Fire Roasted 7-Bean Crockpot Chili

Fire-Roasted 7-Bean Crockpot Chili

A smoky tasting meat chili with fire roasted tomatoes, bell peppers, serranos and the rich depth of seven different beans. You see, after mom brought me all those ripe tomatoes from her garden and I fire roasted multiple batches of them, I made some of them into salsa, and some of them into enchilada sauce, […]


Cherry Beef Salad with Cherry Malbec Vinaigrette

Cherry Beef-Salad with Toasted Pecans & a Cherry Malbec Vinaigrette

I’m SOooo excited … there are sweet cherries in my house! I almost never have sweet cherries. They just don’t grow here, and I can’t bear to pay $4 to $5 per pound for them so I very very rarely buy them. But this year must be a good cherry year because I’ve seen them […]


Spiedies {Legendary Italian Marinated Meat Kebabs}

Spiedies: Legendary Italian Meat Kebabs

My Italian friend Linda tells me “the name Spiedies has nothing to do with speed and everything to with the Big Daddy of spiedies which is spiedini, the Italian kebab or skewered and grilled meat.” Spiedies are an upstate New York Italian favorite that really started in the Middle East. When the Middle Eastern conquerors invaded Italy, they brought […]


Grilled Corned Beef & Gouda Sandwich with Dill

Toasted Corned Venison & Gouda Sandwich with Dill and Green Onion

I made my corned “beef” early this year. (It’s not really corned beef, it’s corned venison … yes, it’s true. My dad corned some venison roasts and gave me a few … I love it when he does that!) I will probably make another for St. Patrick’s Day proper, but my daughter wanted meat last […]
