Grain-free Gluten-free "Bread"

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 27, 2013 at 8:29am

I saw a recipe for this bread on the terrific blog Against All Grain. As I’ve noted before, I find eating even gluten-free grains inflammatory (and with a bigger carbohydrate punch than I can get away with, unless I want to gain weight and feel exhausted…). You could call this way of eating Paleo, but…

Popovers

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Dec 21, 2011 at 2:03pm

It actually hurt me a little bit to bake a pan of popovers for the photo. I don’t miss many things since giving up gluten – mostly good beer, honestly – but oh, popovers! Truly the world’s most perfect butter delivery vehicle, soft and eggy, steamy and crusty, marvelously ragged with melted-butter-pooling crevices. In college,…

As I mentioned below, I had the pleasure of chatting all things leftovers on Saturday morning, on the Fresh & Local radio show, with host Susan Berkson and Mike Madison of local hip hop group Unknown Prophets. While Mike is a musician by trade, he is also a fantastic cook. His passion for teaching children…

Thanksgiving kicked off when my dad pulled up to the house last Tuesday afternoon, fresh from a quail hunt in Tennessee. My stepmom Susanna flew in a few hours later from Sheridan, Wyoming, their now home. My house and kitchen were immediately improved. Dad sharpened my knives and starting halving and marinating quail in buttermilk…

Cornbread Dressing

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Nov 20, 2011 at 7:41am

Last Thanksgiving was my first since giving up gluten, so to keep things easy, I just skipped eating my favorite part of my favorite meal…the dressing. Boo! I really missed it, as much as I dig turkey and mashed potatoes. Which is very, very much. This year, particularly since I’m hosting, I decided to play…

Orange Yogurt Pancakes | Fresh Tart

Doesn’t that name sound so healthful, Orange Yogurt Pancakes? Well, I’ll just say up front that these pancakes are not healthful, they’re decadent and rich and completely amazing. The recipe has floated around the family, and our wider circle of friends who taste them, for years. In fact, my handwritten recipe is spelled Orange Yoghurt…

Here’s a…thing.  Due to health problems I’d been experiencing for the last couple of years (puffy eyes/hands, fatigue, joint pain), and given that I’m otherwise totally healthy (blood pressure and cholesterol-wise), I started experimenting with eliminating various foods from my diet. I started with nuts, then eggs, then dairy. I felt exactly the same. And…
