I had The Best meeting last week, outside in the warm sun, sipping a gorgeous sangria made by my friend Tracy Morgan of Kitchen in the Market. We were chatting all sorts of very serious things – logos, web design, cooking classes, and shoes – with a rather long discussion regarding the merits of a…

Cauliflower Gratin

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 20, 2012 at 5:25pm

Perhaps it’s cliche that I read MFK Fisher’s The Gastronomical Me and wanted to immerse myself in the world of food, but that’s OK. Who wouldn’t want to do exactly that after reading that sexy, scrumptious book? My goodness that woman could write, my mouth waters (and my heart swoons) just thinking about it. There’s…

Fried Cheese with Almond Meal Crust (Gluten-Free)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 19, 2012 at 7:03pm

So I had fried cheese for both breakfast and dinner today. I am ridiculously obsessed with the stuff right now, to such a degree that I kind of embarrassed myself a couple of weeks ago raving about the gluten-free fried cheese curds at Red Stag in NE Minneapolis to Ryan Petz of Fulton Beer. When…

Potato Galette

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 15, 2012 at 3:18pm

A potato galette is simply thin slices of potatoes, fat, and seasoning layered into a shallow pan and roasted until crusty and browned. It’s traditional to serve alongside a roast of some sort, and definitely do that, because you can imagine crusty, buttery potatoes do a fine job of soaking up meaty juices of almost…

My son asked me this morning, “Hey, what’s that crumbly cinnamon stuff you put on top of muffins? Make that, like, all the time.” Streusel! Yes! We are a family obsessed with streusel. When I was a little girl, I asked my mom if she could make a whole pan of just streusel, skipping the…

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 2, 2012 at 10:26am

As someone who spends a lot of time in grocery stores, it’s hard to deny the primal thrill of foraging for edibles in the great outdoors.
