Screw-the-Snow Fish Tacos

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 23, 2011 at 7:30pm

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…

Cheese Souffle (Gluten-Free)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 3, 2011 at 12:29pm

I’ve been slightly obsessed with food blogger/writer/photographer Kate Sommers adventures in raising chickens in the city of Minneapolis. After a couple of false starts – two hens turned out to be roosters! – she’s now got three hens noisily cranking out pretty, pretty brown, pink, and blue eggs. Probably because I haven’t been very secret…

Chicken Braised in Coconut Milk

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Feb 27, 2011 at 5:42pm

This recipe is a total cheat. It’s the same base as the Beef Braised in Coconut Milk I posted awhile back, with a whole chicken in the pot instead of a beef roast. I’ve been meaning to do this for ages – even last week I picked up a chicken and coconut milk. The store…
