We leave with a recipe, which I prep and tweak for…

Roast Chicken Sandwich with Pickled Marmalade

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 29, 2011 at 2:43pm

I am so starved for spring color that freshly washed cars look like candy to me. I said the other day, “Oh my gosh, that red car looks absolutely delicious.” My teen son looked at me and asked, “Why do you live in Minnesota?” It’s a fair question, given my oft-bemoaned sensory deprivation, and given…

Orange Yogurt Pancakes

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 26, 2011 at 6:09am

Doesn’t that name sound so healthful, Orange Yogurt Pancakes? Well, I’ll just say up front that these pancakes are not healthful, they’re decadent and rich and completely amazing. The recipe has floated around the family, and our wider circle of friends who taste them, for years. In fact, my handwritten recipe is spelled Orange Yoghurt…

Screw-the-Snow Fish Tacos

The weather, I promised myself I would not talk about the weather. But forget it man, this is Minnesota, and we talk about the weather.  So here it is: It rained ice last night, as John and I were on our way from not one but two fabulous dinners.  I first dug into champagne, pommes…

Minnesota Food Bloggers Unite Part II: Corner Table Restaurant

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 21, 2011 at 8:55pm

These Minnesota Food Bloggers events must end! They’re just so damn fun that the next day is a bit of a let-down. Who’s making me dinner? Pouring me glasses of prosecco? Making me laugh maniacally? Chatting endlessly about food, cooking, ingredients, restaurants, events, new projects, and when we should next have dinner? Spoiled food blogger…

Beef Brisket Tacos

I took this picture after…6 pm!  That is so outstanding I can barely contain myself.  It’s been a long, dark winter in Minnesota and while it’s still cold as hell, with a thick blanket of dirty snow covering everything (the color of despair as my Twitter friend @ChefSpencerGray called it, perfect), there is light.  Lalalight!…

Collard Greens (Paleo, AIP-Friendly)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 10, 2011 at 5:07pm

I’ve been meaning to post this recipe since the holidays, when I brought this dish to my aunt Mary & uncle Bruce’s house for Christmas Day. Time flies… Actually, time doesn’t fly in Minnesota between December and March, so I’m not sure what my excuse is. But no matter, here it is. Collard greens, for…

Tortilla Soup

Spring may be right around the corner, but I’m freezing right now. Brrr! I keep going out at night without stockings on, dying to wear something other than boots, hoping that because it’s now March, 20 degrees will feel more like 50 degrees. Not that 50 degrees is warm enough to go stockingless either, but…
