Schaum Torte (Paleo, Primal)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 13, 2017 at 9:48am

Happy Spring! Meringues and pavlovas make for such light, impressive, and naturally grain-free spring desserts. If you want to go the individual shell route, see the Pavlovas with Lime Curd that pastry chef extraordinnaire Zoe Francois shared with me a few years back. Or, you can bake the meringue as one whole, in a spring form…

Chocolate Avocado Pudding (Paleo, AIP, Vegan)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 9, 2017 at 5:52pm

Happy Sunday! What a beautiful weekend it’s been, I just love how Minnesotans (including me) are in a collectively good mood when the sun comes out and temps hit the 60s. I went for a long walk on Saturday and waved at everyone I saw and didn’t even feel like a weirdo. Tralalaaah! I’ll confess…

Thanksgiving 2016 Menu

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Nov 17, 2016 at 9:03pm

I taught my Paleo Thanksgiving class at Kitchen in the Market last Friday and wanted to share the recipes with you all. I LOVE Thanksgiving, every single part of it. Planning, shopping, cooking on my own ahead of time and then with the gang on the big day, setting the table, being with my family,…

Rhubarb “Egg” Cream for Fauxtail Friday (and for Dessert!) | Primal, Paleo & AIP adaptable

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 22, 2016 at 3:15pm

Happy Fauxtail Friday! And in this case Happy Dessert Friday, because this baby pink beauty is the PERFECT easy summer dessert. “Egg creams” aren’t all that familiar to us Midwesterners, at least these days when soda fountains have all but disappeared. But they’ve persisted on the East Coast, and that’s a wonderful thing, because holy cats…

Kefir Maple Bourbon Panna Cotta with Strawberry Jam & Black Pepper

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 4, 2015 at 3:25pm

My five year anniversary of going gluten-free is fast approaching. What an adventure it’s been and what a good reminder that sometimes the things that seem so hard provide the very kick in the pants we need to move onward and upward. Going gluten- and grain-free aka paleo changed my health, and then my energy, and…

Sweet & Sour Rhubarb Compote (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 23, 2015 at 8:34pm

Did you know that rhubarb is an aphrodisiac? Don’t tell the Lutherans (I’m Lutheran by baptism, for the record), but it is, and it likely explains why we all go gaga for the stuff. In fact, I have a theory that anything that captures Pinterest’s collective imagination is an aphrodisiac. Yes, that means we are…

Squash Panna Cottas and A Confession

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jan 14, 2015 at 8:29pm

I’ve never confessed, in all of this endless chatting about food, how much I experiment on myself. Or how much I am obsessed with nutrition. On a cold night you’ll find me curled up with herbal tea, a snuggly blanket, and a good nutrition book, turning pages as fast as I can. As you know,…

Quick Melon Soup (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 20, 2014 at 2:23pm

It’s not too late, it’s not too late! There are still fantastic melons – cantaloupes and watermelons are my fave, but honeydew is lovely too – to be had at the farmers market, so don’t be too annoyed with me for being so lazy about getting this post up.I was inspired to make melon soup…

Blueberry Kuchen: Round III (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 4, 2014 at 4:50pm

Oh blueberry kuchen, what a transformation we’ve had together. I first introduced my friend Susie Shubert’s summertime dessert back in 2010, when I shared the Kingfield Market Berry Bake Off-winning recipe with TC Taste/Minnesota Monthly Magazine readers…about one month before I quit eating gluten. The next summer, I made a gluten-free version, using almond flour…

Salted Honey Caramel Sauce (Paleo, AIP, Dairy-free)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 17, 2014 at 1:58pm

I’ve been cooking all morning, making dinner for my mom, sister Stacey, her son Cooper, and my son Nathan – the last I’ll make for him before we take off for college on Tuesday. Sigh.I’m keeping the menu really simple since I obviously don’t want to spend time in the kitchen once everyone arrives. Crudite…
