OK yes, I realize that I’m posting yet another fried egg dish, but this one is just too good to not share. I had actually forgotten about it, which is rather amazing given how many times I’ve made the dish since Mark Bittman first wrote about it in the New York Times two years ago….

Given that everything is better fried – everything – it will come as no surpirse that root vegetables make utterly dreamy latkes. I like celery root in particular for its slightly sweet flavor. These latkes are delicious as is, fresh out of the fat with a dab of sour cream, but my favorite way to…

Well Fed Guide to Life

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jan 10, 2012 at 8:09pm

I had the pleasure of being a guest on the Well Fed Guide to Life podcast last night with hosts Dave Bergen and Evan Pedersen. We ate, drank, laughed (at least I did, a lot!), and chatted at Muffaletta in St. Paul. We talked about food, vampires, hangovers, and Mexican food so bad it’s good…

I’d love to take credit for the fabulous recipe but no, these are via Chef Adam Vickerman of Cafe Levain, who now has the lady…

This has absolutely nothing to do with food but everything to do with my other love – shoes! All summer long I adored perusing the blog Summer of Dresses (oh, I love clothes too, particularly dresses…) where ladies would snap a quick pic of the dress they had on, then post their pics via email….
