Tea Rhubarb Sour for Fauxtail Friday

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 1, 2016 at 3:53pm

So here’s a thing. I quit drinking alcohol again. I stopped for more than a year while I first followed the autoimmune protocol and observed four significant things: 1) I felt effing awesome. I slept great, I wrote better (which was good, because I was writing Twin Cities Chef’s Table at the time), my mood…

Fat Part I: Bulletproof Coffee or Tea #vroom

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Feb 9, 2015 at 11:41am

First, a note. I’m one year into following the autoimmune protocol/AIP and have successfully reintroduced a few foods (including coffee, thus this post). I’ll be writing an update post soon – some reintroductions have been more successful than others, but in general, I am still following AIP 90% of the time and feeling better than…

Mmmocktail Time! Raspberry-Mint Simple Syrup (AIP, Paleo)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 26, 2014 at 7:17pm

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of bubbly beverages. Champagne used to be my go-to, but these autoimmune protocol days (and for the foreseeable future because I feel great not drinking alcohol), my bubbles are of the sparkling water variety. I still enjoy a festive beverage around the cocktail hour, so I’m happily exploring…

Summer Promise Bubbles

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 16, 2013 at 5:08pm

Last week I shared green juice and flatbread pizza recipes that are perfect for using up farmers market or CSA box produce. This week, same goal, just add booze! In honor of Earth Day (April 22), I used Prairie Vodka, carefully made right here in Minnesota from organic corn (gluten-free!). It’s a beautiful collaboration, among…

Borough/Parlour

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jan 24, 2013 at 6:34am

I have the delightful privilege of running around town with a pack of broads who know a thing or two about cocktails. Like girlfriends everywhere, we meet up to celebrate victories and soothe defeats, although we have the bonus of calling our cackling “work.” We thoroughly enjoyed a recent laugh (or three) at the sparkly…

Magical Boozy Eggnog

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Dec 11, 2012 at 6:51pm

As a kid, I loved eggnog so much I could down a carton all by myself. I thought it was truly insane that anyone would blemish its creamy dreamy nutmeginess with stupid booze. Do not mess with perfection! I no longer feel that way. I read this recipe in the December/January issue of (the fabulous!)…

Basil Blossom Sangria (Make-and-Sip!)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 23, 2012 at 5:01pm

I had The Best meeting last week, outside in the warm sun, sipping a gorgeous sangria made by my friend Tracy Morgan of Kitchen in the Market. We were chatting all sorts of very serious things – logos, web design, cooking classes, and shoes – with a rather long discussion regarding the merits of a…

French 75 (aka Mollytav Cocktail)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jan 3, 2012 at 2:43pm

Happy New Year! Bubbles aren’t just for New Year’s Eve of course, in fact in my book they’re for every day (bit of an obsession), especially when topping a fabulous cocktail. When I had the idea to conjure a cocktail recipe to open 2012, I immediately tweeted my minxstress friend Molly McNeil, she of the…

Autumn Sangria

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 18, 2011 at 3:41pm

You might think of sangria as a summer drink – which it is – but this autumn version just might be the best I’ve ever had. The pretty jug in the photo was stirred together by my friend Molly McNeil, a cocktail minxtress if ever I’ve met one, based on a version by the talented…

Sangriaah!

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 9, 2010 at 3:40pm

John and I love to sip sangria on a warm evening, despite the fact that it goes down like dangerously icy buttah. Beware the smooth deliciousness – there’s alcohol in that glass even if it doesn’t taste like it. John in particular is a fan of Masa’s sangrias, one sparkling, one white, and one red….
