Mushroom Soup with Chicken, Broccoli & Pumpkin Seeds

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jan 5, 2013 at 10:36am

Happy New Year! It’s time for vegetables! I know that I don’t really need to explain why, given universal post-holiday puffiness and such. For me, all sorts of high-carbohydrate, gluten-free grainy flours made their way into my diet and while festive, I certainly noticed how 1) tired, and 2) starving it all made me feel. …

Fall Soups: Twin Cities Live

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 8, 2012 at 8:39pm

I had a blast chatting fall soups on Twin Cities Live this week! I specifically talked about Coconut Curry Sweet Corn Soup, but also brought along Pozole (pork braised with chiles and hominy) and a Chicken Vegetable Soup that’s pretty much the perfect post-Thanksgiving soup (obviously made with turkey not chicken – please forgive me…

We spent the day at my aunt Mary and uncle Bruce’s farm, about two hours west of Minneapolis.  As always, a beautiful setting, meal, and day. I hope you had a lovely, delicious day!

If you’ve read my blog for any length of time, you know that I love visiting my aunt Mary and uncle Bruce’s farm in west-central Minnesota.  If you’re a new reader – welcome! – and here’s why: Beauty.  Stillness.             Warm, buttery scones with softly scrambled eggs and browned sausages….

(Don’t) Let it Snow!

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Dec 23, 2009 at 8:44am

We casually sent a holiday card this year saying “Let it Snow.”  I meant it, since I love a snowy holiday, but I was dreaming of a white – not white out – Christmas.  Unfortunately, we (and a good portion of the Midwest) are about to get blasted with piles of snow, mixed with ice,…

We’re Still Celebrating…

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Dec 27, 2008 at 12:36pm

Holidays still going strong here at the Levy Hacienda…  Let’s see, we’ve pretty much been celebrating since Sunday when my bro and sis David and Etta accidentally arrrived – flying from NYC to Billings, MT, through Minneapolis, they missed their connection and couldn’t secure another flight until Wednesday morning.  Woo hoo!  Well, not for them,…

When we do beach in Minnesota, it’s at a lake, of course. Or even better, it’s on a lake, in a boat, with a cooler full of snacks & supplies, good tunes, and enough engine oomph to pull the water ski- and intertube-inclined of the group. Ahhh, warm sun, cool breeze, cold beer, beautiful views….

Happy Bunny to You! Ahh, home. Nathan and I got off the plane from San Francisco this afternoon and went straight to my Dad & Susanna’s for Easter dinner with my aunt Mary & uncle Bruce, as well as Stacey& Cooper. Couldn’t ask for a sweeter way to ease back in to winter, you know?…

Merry Christmas Day! We spent the occasion at my Aunt Mary and Uncle Bruce’s lovely farm outside Kerkhoven, Minnesota, as we have for the last several years, lucky us. As always, it was picture perfect – twinkly-sparkly festive and the definition of Christmas-y as we all sat around the gorgeous, gigantic table they set up…

Christmas Day at the farm was perfect. Lovely drive, beautiful setting, great hosts (my aunt Mary and uncle Bruce) and guests (aunt Marge, uncle Jim, cousins Kelly, Kim, and Craig). And the KILL meal – salad with berries and almonds, roast prime rib with pan juices, mashed potatoes with sour cream (oh yeah, they’re as…
