I made the original saltcod version of these fritters via Andrew Zimmern’s Kitchen Adventures and watched my friends and family devour them. I love fritters! I love anything fried! So I created two versions – both glutenful and gluten-free – and was delighted when taste testers couldn’t tell the difference between the two. If fritters…

Fried Egg BLT with Harissa & Avocado

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 20, 2012 at 8:18pm

This sandwich is so delicious it makes even gluten-free bread seem divine. Inspired by the movie Spanglish – worth seeing for a couple of killer food scenes, thanks to consulting chef Thomas Keller – it’s basically just a glorified BLT. But I love glorified, especially when the glory is via a fried egg, and melted…

Back in January – which feels like a million years ago given this spring weather! – I had the pleasure of participating in a Chef’s Night Off cooking class at Kitchen in the Market. Jason DeRusha and I assisted chef Scott Pampuch, along with 12 other students, in preparing a stunning, multi-course, wine-paired dinner. I…

I saw this recipe this week for Sri Lankan rice flour-coconut milk pancakes. With yeast! I couldn’t wait to make them. They are ridiculously delicious, no surprise. Is anything made with coconut milk not amazing? The stuff blows my mind and palate, over and over and over again. Love. Make sure to try the onion…

A Chicken Soup Supper

I am obsessed with food writer MFK Fisher (1908-1992). No one writes about food more sensually, with as much humor, and common sense, all together, and I can’t get enough. I took her book With Bold Knife and Fork, published in 1969, with me on vacation last week and was highlighting so many passages on…

I made this colorful dish for Christmas dinner and am just getting around to sharing it with you now. I’d like to say that I sat down and thought about everyone’s favorite vegetables and what would be pretty with the rest of the meal but honestly…I got rushed, and behind, and realized awfully late that…
