Sunflower Fig Zucchini Bread

Sunflower Fig Zucchini Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #yogurt #wholewheat #zucchini #bread #recipe

Do you ever get bored with the same old zucchini bread recipe? I do … so sometimes I have to go out on a limb and make a new flavor. And this time I had some fresh figs that needed using … and making a figgy zucchini bread sounded fun. I constantly wonder about the figgy […]


Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #zucchini #bread #recipe

My mother has been trying new flavors of zucchini bread … she told me the most popular flavor she’s made lately is the peanut butter one. She makes hers with peanut butter chips … my mom is not a big fan of chocolate, but she does like peanut butter. Mom didn’t give me a recipe, […]


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 […]


Lavender Rhubarb Cobbler Cake

Lavender Rhubarb Cobbler Cake ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #rhubarb #lavender #cobbler #dessert #recipe

I first made this lovely “fruit-on-top” cobbler with strawberries. It was such a fun time … my little niece helped “plippity plop” the strawberries on top. Then I had to try it with other fruits. Then I made one with plums from my dad’s (very proliferous) plum tree. And this year, I thought I need to make one […]


Favorite Chocolate Chip Pancakes

My Daughter's Favorite Chocolate Chip Pancakes ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #fluffy #pancake #recipe

Ever since my girl went to stay with her Auntie Jill a couple years ago, this has been the pancake recipe that has reigned over our household. I tried to remind my sweetie pie of the recipe we made when she was younger that she loved, but she was having none of that. This was […]


Chocolate Peanut Butter Breakfast Bars

Chocolate Peanut Butter Breakfast Bars ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #PB #oats #breakfast #chocolate #recipe

Adapted slightly from Food Faith Fitness Oh dear foodie friends, I did it! After 4 months, I am within 1 lb. of my weight-loss goal. Some people might say I should wait to celebrate until I’m there, but (a couple pounds ago) one of my friends looked at me like it’s time to stop … I said I […]


Irish Barmbrack Bread {in the Bread Machine}

Irish Barmbrack Bread with tea-soaked raisins ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #wholewheat #irish #yeast #breadmachine #recipe

Adapted from Seasons & Suppers St. Patty’s Day is just around the corner. It’s one of my favorite holidays … and no, not just because of the beer. I have always been fascinated with Ireland. It’s on the list of places I must go. When I visited England and Scotland years ago, I wanted to […]


Whole Wheat Yogurt Bread

Whole Wheat Yogurt Bread ~ Soft fluffy homemade bread that stays soft for days ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #breadmachine #recipe

Soft, fluffy homemade bread that stays soft and fluffy for days … a bread machine recipe A while ago, I posted my dad’s soft and wonderful yogurt bread recipe, which is truly wonderful, but as time went on and many many many loaves of bread were made in my house, I adjusted my own go-to bread recipe […]


Peppy’s Pita Bread {Bread Machine Recipe}

Peppy's Pita Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Pita #Bread #Recipe #Breadmachine

Adapted from AllRecipes.com Puffy part-whole wheat, homemade pitas that split nicely in two if you cut them open. Easy to make and so good for easy lunches and suppers! I have to admit that when I made this recipe, I really had no idea why this was called “Peppy’s Pita Bread”. But I googled it […]


Double Chai Pear Cake

Double Chai Pear Cake ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pear #dessert #cake #recipe

What do you do when you have a bunch of ugly (but delicious) fresh pears to use? Bake a cake! A whole wheat, low sugar pear cake heavily spiced with the flavors of chai–something you could eat for breakfast OR dessert. You see, my friend has a sick pear tree. It saddens me greatly to see […]


Fresh Apricot Ginger Peasant Cake

Fresh Apricot Ginger Peasant Cake ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cake #dessert #recipe

Adapted slightly from The Luna Cafe I was smitten with this cake the instant I saw it … especially since mom and dad still have bunches of fresh apricots from their tree that need using. The Luna Cafe describes this cake as “a simple, earthy cake in the clafouti tradition and a delicious vehicle for late summer fruit […]


Bacon Cheddar Zucchini Tots

Bacon Cheddar Zucchini Tots ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #zucchini #sidedish #appetizer #snack #recipe

Adapted from The Two Bite Club I’ve had this zucchini tots recipe from The Two Bite Club saved away for ages it seems, just waiting for zucchini season. It was so hard to wait! I know, I really could have bought zucchini and made it … I have been buying zucchini when I don’t have fresh garden […]


Triple Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

Triple Chocolate Zucchini Muffins ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #decadent #wholewheat #darkchocolate #muffins #zucchini

These are everything you want in a dark decadent, super chocolatey muffin, plus some hidden healthy stuff. You cannot taste the zucchini. Seriously. You won’t notice it’s there … (except your body will thank you for eating veggies). And there’s whole wheat flour … and a little flaxmeal … and yogurt. This is starting to sound […]


Bagel Dogs

Bagel Dogs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #homemade #breadmachine #bageldogs

Here’s a little trip back in time in recipe-land. A long, long time ago, when my son was little and the only little one we had in our newly started family, he was very active and busy and wild. He would drive his father crazy on Saturday mornings with all his energy when all his […]


Cardamom Rhubarb Tart

Cardamom Rhubarb Tart ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #rhubarb #dessert #recipe

Adapted slightly from The Luna Cafe I was immediately intrigued with this rustic tart the instant I saw the post from The Luna Cafe. She describes it like this: THE PERFECT RUSTIC TART–CRUNCHY ON THE EDGES, CHEWY IN THE CENTER, AND BURSTING WITH JUICY, TART RHUBARB. Well, how could you go wrong with that? Especially when there […]


Fluffy Pillow Cornmeal Biscuits

Light & Fluffy Pillow Cornmeal Biscuits ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #biscuit #recipe

My son asked me for biscuits a week or two ago. I told him to search my blog and he said there were only two biscuit recipes there. That seemed kinda wrong so we made up a new one. It’s marvelous because he’s discovered he likes to make the biscuit dough, so we’ve had several […]


Apple Pie w/Apple Whiskey Pie Crust #PiDay

Apple Pie with Apple Whiskey Crust ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #PiDay #apple #pie #recipe #flakycrust

Adapted from Cook’s Illustrated It’s 3.14 today … Pi Day … an annual event we love to celebrate at my house because we love math … and we love pie. But I have a confession to make: I have a HUGE pie crust phobia (resulting from a bad pie experiment I did as a child), so I […]


Ginger Spice Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

Ginger Spice Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #pumpkin #oat #spice #cookies #recipe

Adapted from Chow I know, I know, it’s not October! But I found a container of pumpkin in my freezer and it needed to be used and I just felt like making my pumpkin into cookies. It’s been so chilly and dreary and wintry lately and we are all just itching for spring … I love the […]


Maple Spice Apple Crisp

Maple Spice Apple Crisp ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #lowsugar #apple #crisp

My yoga friend’s apple tree had a plentiful year. For weeks she brought us buckets full of apples, with special bags for us to bring a bunch of apples home with us. I filled up a couple bags of apples and brought them home … I did use a few of the apples, but most of […]


Aztec Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Aztec Chocolate Zucchini Cake with Raspberry Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chocolate #raspberry #zucchini #cake #recipe

with Raspberry Sauce … (and Gluten Free options) When I visited my parents last weekend, they had one of those large zucchini sitting on their counter. They told me I should take it to make something. “It’s perfect for cake,” I said, and gladly took it off their hands, with visions of chocolate cake dancing […]


Peach Pecan Scones

Peach Pecan Scones with Vanilla White Chocolate Drizzle ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #peach #pecan #scones #recipe

with vanilla white chocolate drizzle When we went camping at the folk fest, my friend asked me to bring muffins for breakfast. I said to her “no, not muffins — scones!” because I have peaches and I remembered that peach muffins do NOT travel well, but peach SCONES, now that would be quite a different […]


Brandied Cinnamon Peach Cobbler

Brandied Cinnamon Peach Cobbler ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #peach #cobbler #recipe

The weekend after I got back from vacation with my kids, one of my foodie friends kept reminding me (in multiple ways) about the Peach festival going on … I wasn’t in much of a mood for a festival after our big vacay, but I was DEFINITELY in the mood for some good peaches. So […]


Vanilla Yogurt Scones

Vanilla-Yogurt-Scones-2

Crunchy raw sugar coating on a tender, perfectly moist yet dry scone made with vanilla yogurt. They are quite simple to make, too–I’ve simplified the recipe to the bare bones required for a perfect scone. Every time I make scones, my son asks me to make him “plain vanilla” scones. I always resist, saying “why […]
