Coconut Milk Panna Cotta With Maple Syrup

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 3, 2013 at 12:18pm

So long Minnesota State Fair! It was a wild ride this year, loads of food fun despite soul-sucking heat followed by mercifully cool breezes…which in turn drew the largest crowds I’ve ever experienced. Yikes! I tend to indulge in savory foods when I’m out there, mostly in the form of pork (this year I enjoyed…

Andrew Zimmern’s Baltimore-Style Crab Cakes

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 28, 2012 at 11:40am

Along with my father-in-law’s famously fabulous crab cakes, my other favorite is Andrew Zimmern’s version, via our mutual friend Carol Mack. Both recipes have in common a very, very small amount of breading. Crab cakes should be mostly crab! Really, really good lump crab, in fact.

Matzoh Ball Soup

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 3, 2012 at 6:44pm

Man oh man oh man do I miss matzoh ball soup! It used to be a bit of a joke in my household because my husband is Jewish, and doesn’t like matzoh balls, and I am not, and could eat 10 of them in one sitting. Not kidding. While I couldn’t dig into these myself…

Ham Fritters

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 28, 2012 at 6:15am

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…
