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 […]


Chilled Mint Mango Cantaloupe Soup

Chilled Mint Mango Cantaloupe Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert #smoothie #soup #recipe

Adapted slightly from It’s Yummi My dad grows a lot of cantaloupe every year … this year he had a huge bumper crop of melons. When I went to visit, he had over 100 cantaloupe that they had just picked. He gave me 12 cantaloupe to take home and share with friends. I gave a […]


Cinnamon Cranberry Chai Zucchini Bread

Cinnamon Cranberry Chai Zucchini Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #chai #zucchini #bread #recipe

Adapted from Simple Bites’ Best Zucchini Bread Ever When is the season where cinnamon and cranberries and hot chai intersect with zucchini? Sadly, I know, it doesn’t exist … these things never coincide. Cinnamon, perhaps, because cinnamon is an all-season sort of spice (but especially beloved in the fall) and chai too is welcomed in […]


Minted Cantaloupe Chicken Salad

Minted Cantaloupe Chicken Salad with Minted Yogurt Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #summer #melon #salad #recipe

My dad gave me one of his first few prized cantaloupes from his garden. Dad absolutely loves cantaloupe and always plants an abundance of them in his garden. We await them eagerly every year. They are sooo sweet and juicy and wonderful. When you put a piece in your mouth, it practically melts on your […]


Honey Banana Apricot Yoghurt Smoothie

Honey Banana Apricot Yoghurt Smoothie ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #apricot #smoothie #recipe #noosayoghurt

My Saturday morning routine has been missing a good yoga class, so I went to a new yoga class Saturday morning. I’ve been wanting to go to this class for weeks, but just haven’t been in town … we’ve been so busy going places this summer! I am trying to really enjoy summer while it’s here this year, […]


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 […]


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 […]


Creamy Blueberry FroYo for One w Zoku & Noosa Reviews

Creamy Blueberry Frozen Yoghurt for One w/Zoku & Noosa yoghurt ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #1-ingredient #FroYo #recipe

Did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month? On top of that, it’s been scorching hot outside for weeks and I don’t think I’ve posted a single ice cream recipe yet this summer. What kind of food blogger am I? Seriously, I better get a move on! Well, I was lucky in that […]


Greek Yogurt Spinach Artichoke Dip

Skinny Greek Yogurt Spinach Artichoke Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #hummus #GreekYogurt #SpinDip

One of my yoga sisters had a party after yoga class last week. When someone hosts a party at their house, it’s customary for the rest of us to bring a little something. We have the BEST parties because my yoga friends are also foodies. I didn’t have much time this week, but I did need to make up […]


Roasted Grape & Walnut Salad

Roasted Grape & Walnut Salad with blue cheese, fresh mint and a maple ginger yogurt dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #grape #salad #recipe

with fresh mint, blue cheese & a Maple Ginger Yogurt dressing Grapes are a tricky little type of fruit at my house of ultra-picky eaters. When perfectly crisp and fresh, my practically grown kids will eat them and eat them, but if they are even just a bit soft, they turn up their noses at […]


Bacon Cheddar Chive Mini-Cheeseballs

Bacon Cheddar Chive Cheeseballs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #appetizer #snack #party #recipe

I am in party mode this week, my friends, preparing for our semi-annual event that I do with my artist friends. We have a grand time drinking wine and talking with all the people to come look at/purchase art and home furnishings … and eating grand food. This is one of the items I plan […]


Un-Stuffed Cabbage Casserole

Un-Stuffed Cabbage Casserole ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #beefy #cabbageroll #casserole #recipe

Someone posted an un-stuffed cabbage casserole and it brought back images of my childhood when I was very little and my mom made us stuffed cabbage leaves. Stuffed with ground beef and rice, they were all rolled up and sooo delicious. I’ve often thought that I’d like to make stuffed cabbage leaves like mom used […]


Cranberry Chipotle Meatballs

Cranberry Chipotle Meatballs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #glutenfree #party #meatballs #recipe

I made this recipe because a friend of mine from work came to me and said she had this grass-fed ground round that she was having NO luck with whatsoever, so she asked if she could bring some of it to me and see if I could make something edible out of it. She complained that […]


Hot Asiago Bacon Leek Dip

Hot Asiago Bacon Leek Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #creamy #Greekyogurt #bacon #leek #dip #recipe

A hot n cheesy Asiago version of “French Onion” dip featuring the more soft, subtle flavor of leeks with a smoky undertone of bacon. I’m still playing with the leeks my sister gave me from her garden. She bragged to me that HER leeks didn’t have any sand or dirt inside of them, and indeed they didn’t. […]


Asiago Mushroom Moussaka

Asiago Mushroom Moussaka ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Greek #Lasagna #Recipe

with gluten free options. For those of you who have never had Moussaka, it’s sort of like a Greek version of lasagna, except it uses thin slices of eggplant in place of the noodles and it’s spiced in a lovely Greek sort of manner … and there’s no ricotta, but there’s a wonderful cheesy bechamel sauce on […]


Eggplant & Chickpea Curry

Eggplant & Chickpea Curry ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #hearty #vegetarian #dinner #recipe #glutenfree

with tomatoes and basil … adapted from Real Simple (and my sister) When my family gets together, no matter what the occasion, the conversation always turns towards food. It’s been a very sad past couple weeks for my family, with my uncle’s battle with cancer, then the funeral. My sister was worried about my dad, so […]


Banana Blueberry Oatmeal Parfait

Banana Blueberry Oatmeal Parfait ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #overnight #oatmeal #parfait #makeahead #breakfast #inajar

It’s almost time for my second cooking class! I’m doing a class on make-ahead breakfasts this month and one of the things we’ll be making are overnight oatmeal breakfast parfaits. I’ve been making lots of different flavors to see which ones work best before the class, and this one turned out to be a total […]


Ginger Plum Breakfast Parfait

Ginger Plum Overnight Oatmeal Breakfast Parfaits ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #makeahead #breakfast #recipe

My stomach needs time to “wake up” in the morning before I eat, so for me I need an easy option to bring with me to work that I can eat while I’m working. I get bored with the same old same old breakfast routine so I need to switch it up a bit every […]


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 […]


Making Salads a Sumptuous Meal

Strawberry Almond Wild Violet Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #salad #recipe

with helpful links for salad inspirations, salad questions, health information, and links to over 81 salad and salad dressing recipes Last week I hosted my very first cooking class. My full-time job doesn’t normally involve cooking, but I found a way to combine the two! I went to our HR director and volunteered to do […]


Cilantro Curry Potato Salad

Cilantro Curry Potato Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #curry #potato #salad #recipe

I’m going to apologize for posting so many “produce” recipes, but it IS that time of year! I have so many fresh garden goodies and not enough time to make good use of everything! This was another creation I made for our little camping trip to the folk fest. I used my glorious cilantro coconut […]


Vanilla Yogurt Scones

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 […]


Mango Chicken Mulberry Salad

Mango Chicken Mulberry Salad with Mango Lavender Key Lime Yogurt Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dinner #salad #recipe

With Mango Lavender Key Lime Yogurt Dressing I bought a mango a while ago, dreaming of a mango chicken salad. At the time I bought the mango, I had intended to make it with strawberries, but then the mulberries started and I just HAD to use them on my salad. I went out with my […]


Chipotle Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Chipotle Cheddar Bay Biscuits ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chipotle #cheddar #biscuit #redlobster #copycat #recipe

Adapted from Damn Delicious Surviving as a seafood lover in the midwest is somewhat troublesome. While the lakes here provide a bountiful supply of wonderful fresh fish, it’s nigh impossible to find fresh shrimp or crab or lobster. I often resort to canned or frozen seafood and when we go out, well, Red Lobster is […]
