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…

On the Lighter Side

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Dec 27, 2010 at 12:01pm

I am stuffed to the max from rich holiday foods.  Even though I was successful in avoiding gluten and grains, the salt really catches up to me.  Puff city.  And after a week of heavier foods, salads, fish, and brothy soups just sound so right to me. While these recipes aren’t new, I thought you…

Quick Coconut Curry with Halibut & Broccoli

I posted this recipe a few weeks ago at Dara & Co./Minnesota Monthly Magazine. I know it’s a crazy-busy time of year, which makes it nice to have a quick, nourishing recipe to turn to for a satisfying dinner.  Plus: I don’t know about you, but spicy food tastes extra delicious when it’s zero degrees…

Fish Soup with Tomatoes

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 13, 2010 at 7:29am

If you’re willing to shop online, I can say that I’ve been extremely pleased with the sustainably caught king salmon and…

I posted this recipe a few weeks ago at Dara & Co./Minnesota Monthly Magazine.  It may be mid-October, but it’s still warm enough to grill & chill outside.  Strange, but we’ll take it, so go for the grill – yes! Warm sun, cool breezes, my favorite time of year has arrived!  Open windows, evening walks,…

Part I: Eastward Ho!

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 17, 2010 at 11:14am

We just returned from visiting my in-laws’ home in the Hamptons, one of the prettiest places in the world.  With lush flowers, towering trees, white beaches, and sprawling “cottages,” there is always somewhere picturesque to rest your eye. The food is lush too, spilling over onto quaint farm stands and into local markets.  Berries, melons,…

Grilled Salmon with Avocado, Egg, Greens, & Mustard Vinaigrette

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 28, 2010 at 7:07pm

As I’ve complained before, it’s hard to find good salmon in Minnesota.  I know, we’re in the middle of the country, about as far from any ocean as you can get in North America.  It’s an unimportant problem.  My not-terribly-local solution is that I buy wild salmon filets online from VitalChoice, the king salmon to…
