Same here. My girl does this with her food and especially the water bowl. For food, I simply serve it and take it away in 10 to 15 minutes. If she spills it ahead of that time, I simply pick it up and she gets to skip that meal. So far, she eats her food without spilling, but every once in a while she won't eat it all so I pick it up.
The water bowl is another story. She spills her water every time. What I do is not fill it up. If she spills it, then I don't refill it for a while.
What our dogs need to learn is that this behavior will not get them attention, nor will they a refill or change of kibble if they do so. Nilf needs to be practiced diligently.
