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 […]


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, […]


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 […]


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 […]


Lavender Lemon Zucchini Loaf

Lavender Lemon Zucchini Loaf ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert #cake #zucchini #lemon #recipe

Adapted just slightly from Lil Luna This is not really a zucchini “bread” … it is a cake. It is made with cake flour and a good amount of oil, just like a cake. It has a light, cakey, white texture and a light crumb. The glaze is added shortly after taking the loaves from the oven […]


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 […]


Mexican Zucchini Lasagna

Mexican Zucchini Lasagna ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #glutenfree #paleo #zucchini #mexican #lasagna #recipe

I had this brilliant idea to make a Mexican-inspired lasagna using zucchini in place of the lasagna noodles. I mixed ricotta with a little cumin, oregano, cilantro, chipotle powder and Mexican cheeses. In each layer I added taco meat, bell peppers and jalapeno, black beans, sweet corn, and in place of the tomato sauce I […]


Avocado Jalapeno Zummus

Avocado Jalapeno Zummus ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spicy #zucchini #hummus #recipe

I want to start a new trend. I think “Zummus” should be a new word in the dictionary, kind of like the word “Zoodles” has taken over the foodie blog scene. Want to help me? Create your own version of Zummus and post it/share it/pin it (tag or message me and I’ll share it too!) […]


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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


Sausage & Potato Skillet Supreme

Sausage & Potato Skillet Supreme ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #skillet #dinner #recipe

One of my favorite times of year is when I’m visiting my Mom and Dad at harvest time, hand-picking veggies from the garden for our breakfast. My dad and I love to eat this for a hearty, healthy weekend breakfast, but it’s also great for an easy weeknight dinner or, even (like I’m doing this […]


Zucchini Tagliatelle w Mushrooms, Cheesy Quinoa & Egg

Zucchini Taglietelle with Wild Mushroom, Cheesy Quinoa & Egg ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #breakfast #morel #mushroom #recipe

I needed a hearty, healthy breakfast and a zucchini noodle dish topped with cheesy quinoa with egg came to mind. Zucchini noodles (aka “Zoodles”) always seem to be in a spaghetti sort of noodle shape, which is way fun, but there are other blades on my spiralizer, and I thought I ought to try a […]


Zoodle Ricotta Pepperoni Pizza

Zucchini Noodle Pepperoni "Pizza" ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #cheesy #veggie #zoodle #recipe

Adapted slightly from The Dinner Mom I am still working on my “eat more veggies” initiative where I’m trying to eat more veggies every day. For a while, I let veggies take over my life, but then I realized I was overdoing it … and in the process, making myself miserable. Yes, it’s good to […]


Minted Moroccan Quinoa Pilaf

Minted Moroccan Quinoa Pilaf ~ Sumtpuous Spoonfuls #healthy #exotic #Mediterranean #pilaf #recipe

I’m so excited, you guys! Tomorrow I’ll be sharing with you a review of a cookbook written by one of my very favorite foodie friends. I’m sure you’ve seen many others reviewing her cookbook lately. She is well loved by sooo many food bloggers and her adventurous dishes are incredibly popular. I hear her cookbook […]


Mexican Fiesta Taco Soup

Mexican Fiesta Taco Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #festive #taco #soup #recipe

This is a festive soup with lots of flavor and spice, bits of vibrant color, with crunchy chips, melty cheese, avocado & cilantro on the top. Make it with taco meat to make a heartier soup, or without for a vegetarian option. The inspiration from this soup came from a Cinco de Mayo party on my facebook […]


Lemon Grilled Salmon w/Rosemary Garlic Veggies

Lemon Grilled Salmon with Mixed Grilled Veggies ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #delicious #lowcal #glutenfree #dinner #recipe

I love salmon. It’s so quick to make, so healthy and soooo delicious. Preparing it on the grill is super fast and easy–you just make a little “plank” for it out of lemon slices and not only do you get that wonderful smoky taste, it’s also infused with the lively taste of lemon. To accompany […]


Zucchini Gorgonzola Soup

Zucchini Gorgonzola Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #creamy #zucchini #gorgonzola #soup with no cream!

Every Wednesday night I go to yoga, and after yoga, my yogi friends and I go out for wine. Most of us just order a drink, but a couple consistently order soup as well. They make very good soup at this restaurant, and one of the soups my friends rave over is their Zucchini Gorgonzola […]


Heavenly Harvest Hash

My uncle is dying. He found out just a couple weeks ago. He has maybe a handful of days left, maybe two handfuls, but not many. Talking to my aunt, she is grateful for that, in a way, because it’s better to go fast than to lay suffering for years. Yes, I can see her […]


Zucchini Ravioli

Zucchini Ravioli ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #zucchini #ricotta #cheese #gf #recipe

Slightly adapted from The Healthy Maven I’ve discovered the simplest, most elegant way to make zucchini noodles. I admit, I do have one of those spiralizer things for making zoodles and I’ve used it a few times and loved the results. I jealously watched other foodies post their gorgeous zoodle photos for years and finally […]


Chicken Bacon Apple Fig Pizza

Chicken Bacon Apple Fig Pizza with Goat Cheese & Maple Balsamic Drizzle ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #thincrust #pizza #recipe

with goat cheese, zucchini ribbons, sweet onions and a maple balsamic drizzle  … Inspired by ChinDeep … plus a collection of fig recipes Or perhaps, since I “cheated” on the crust and used a tortilla in place of the pizza crust, we should call it a Tortizza?  Whatever you call it, it’s easy, delicious, and on […]


Sausage Zucchini Tomato Soup

Sausage Zucchini Tomato Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #autumn #harvest #soup #recipe

As soon as the weather guy mentioned the first cold front of autumn, I was ready for soup. I had started thinking about soup long before this, but it was still too warm to actually WANT soup, so I started stashing ingredients that would be good for soup in my fridge, hoping I’d actually use […]
