Tomato Basil Upside Down Focaccia

Tomato Basil Upside Down Focaccia ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesy #onion #tomato #focaccia #recipe

Inspired by Ally’s Kitchen Think bruschetta baked right into focaccia … with cheese and sauteed onion. It’s a little like a pizza, but in an upside-down cake sort of way. It’s a delightful savory, yeasted upside down cake with focaccia stepping in to replace the cake batter. It could be a show-stealing appetizer, a snack, […]


Bread Machine Hawaiian Rolls

Bread Machine Hawaiian Rolls ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sweet #soft #rolls like #kings #Hawaiian #recipe

Adapted slightly from Handle the Heat Lightly sweet yeasted buttery rolls with a very soft, fluffy texture and tropical taste, these rolls are the fresh, homemade version of the famous King’s Hawaiian rolls. We have these monthly fitness challenges at work and I’m really psyched for this newest challenge. It’s a Hawaiian theme and the challenge is to walk/run/bike/swim 120 miles […]

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 ~ 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 ~ 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!

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 […]


{Copycat} Schlotzky’s Original Sandwich

Copycat Schlotzky's Original Sandwich Recipe ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

Adapted from Food.com and Texas Cookin’ A looong, long time ago, I made a Shlotzky’s Original Sandwich recipe (making the bread dough in my bread machine) and the result was soooo good, you almost couldn’t tell it was made at home. That was way before I was a food blogger, back before I had kids, […]

Adapted slightly from Baked by Rachel  To go with our perfect Easter ham this year, I made this yummy garlicky pull-apart bread.

No Knead Peasant Bread baked in a bowl ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #yeast #bread #recipe

Adapted just slightly from Alexandra Cooks, with a big thank you to Cooking with Mary & Friends A lovely white bread with a soft, tender inside and a crunchy outside.

Italian Tomato Asiago Focaccia

Italian Tomato Asiago Focaccia ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #yeast #bread #recipe

All homemade breads are wonderful in my book, but Focaccia is one of those breads that is just heaven to bite into. This focaccia has extra Italian flavor from Italian seasoning and Asiago cheese baked right into the bread. Topped with sweet cherry tomatoes, Italian seasoning, a bit of garlic and coarse sea salt, the […]


Ham, Cheese & Chive Crescent Pinwheels

Ham, Cheese & Chive Cresent Pinwheels ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #portable #sandwich #recipe

Perfect picnic food … they are like little portable sandwiches you can take with you anywhere. Great for dipping in soup, or you could serve them as an appetizer. The best part, in my mind, is that no cans of crescent roll dough were used in the making of these little portable sandwiches. I was looking […]


Apple Pie Cinnamon Rolls

Apple Pie Cinnamon Rolls ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #breakfast #recipe

It was the morning after the teenage birthday party sleepover, all the girls were sleeping except one early riser. We talked for a while, but then she settled into drawing … SO like my daughter! I turned my thoughts to what to serve for breakfast. This was not something we’d planned ahead of time. I […]

Silvia’s Focaccia Pugliese

Silvia's Focaccia Pugliese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Italian #Bread #Recipe

Recipe from Silvia’s Cucina. Silvia is a genius with bread. I’ve been inspired by her beautiful Italian breads many times, and when I stumbled across this recipe (through no help from facebook, who hides her lovely recipes from me), I was immediately smitten. When I was invited over to a friend’s house for dinner and […]


Cardamom Raspberry Rose Buns

Cardamom Raspberry Rose Buns ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sweet #bread #recipe

Inspired by Del’s Cooking Twist The moment I saw these pretty buns from Del’s Cooking Twist, I wanted to make them. I love playing with bread dough, filling it with things, twisting and turning and shaping and molding … then letting it rise up and bake and seeing the beautiful shapes it becomes. These buns […]


Twisted Apple Braid

Twisted Apple Braid ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #apple #recipe

I love to do cooking projects with my nieces and nephews whenever I see them. They are just the cutest little kitchen helpers! My 4-year-old niece especially loves to hang out in the kitchen with me (she also loves to do yoga poses … a girl after my own heart) and she sticks around through […]


Mulberry Maple Oatmeal Bread

Mulberry Maple Oatmeal Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #bread #recipe

with honey berry cheese spread My beautiful mulberry tree made the biggest, juiciest, blackest, most gorgeous and delicious berries ever this year!

White Whole Wheat Bread

White Whole Wheat Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #bread #recipe

One day my daughter came to me and said, “Mom, why don’t you ever just make plain old bread? I want some plain old bread.” “You mean bread like grandpa bakes?” “Yes, bread like that.” I said to her that I would make her some, and I would teach her how to make it so […]


Peach-y Perfect Caramel Rolls

I made these caramel-icious peach rolls last summer when I had a bunch of fresh, ripe, sweet peaches in my fruit bowl. I think you could substitute frozen or canned peaches if you don’t have fresh ones available. (I’m re-posting them because this is one of the recipes that got screwed up when I moved […]

New York Style Pizza Crust

New York Style Pizza Crust {Part Whole Wheat}

This is a recipe I’ve been using for years and it’s one of my very favorite pizza crust recipes. It’s crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle. My kids love it too … although my son says he prefers the Boboli style crust, he munches these up too whenever I make them. It […]
