Old-Fashioned Vanilla Pudding with Crushed Strawberries

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 20, 2011 at 9:03am

If the only vanilla pudding you’ve ever eaten is from a plastic Jello brand cup, then please make this. It takes about 15 minutes to pull together and will knock your socks off, gone. You can eat the pudding warm right out of the pan (Stephanie style) or chill it for a bit to serve…

Yet Even More In Progress…

The table is set. The Alice Medrich chocolate souffles – not too rich, nicely chocolatey – are ready for the oven.  They’re both gluten-free and do-ahead.  If they washed dishes, they’d be perfect.  (That giant one in the back is for John!) Cauliflower is blanched.  It still needs a coating of breadcrumbs, then it will…

If you’re scrambling today, wishing you’d made Christmas cookies, I offer this fast and delicious chocolate almond coconut bark. It takes 10 minutes to prepare!

Hint-of-Sweet Pumpkin Custard

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Nov 14, 2010 at 7:00pm

As I’ve mentioned, I’m trying to eat as little sugar as possible. So far, so good, although I absolutely love pumpkin pie and didn’t want to miss out this holiday season. Since pumpkin itself is quite nutritious, I decided to experiment with a classic, cream-based pumpkin filling (the best kind, in my opinion) and see…

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Nov 12, 2010 at 7:45am

Behold, the first cake I’ve baked since giving up gluten. I baked it for John’s office’s annual United Way bake sale – which I contribute to every year – so it’s not like I was going to eat it anyhow (and therefore couldn’t cut into it for pics, sorry). But not eating it because it’s…

Olive Oil & Sauternes Cake with Peaches

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 14, 2010 at 11:34am

I posted this recipe a few weeks ago at Dara & Co./Minnesota Monthly Magazine. It might be tricky to put your hands on decent peaches or plums as the season fades, but that’s OK – peeled, sliced apples sauteed as described below would be heavenly too. Have you eaten at Chez Panisse in Berkeley, CA?…

Coconut Pancakes with Strawberries

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 2, 2010 at 9:39am

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…
