Coconut Milk Panna Cotta with Maple Syrup

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…

Abigail and Arthur’s Kale Salad

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Nov 1, 2010 at 11:45am

I first wrote about this recipe a few weeks ago when I described our trip to San Francisco.  My friend Maud’s brother Arthur made a delicious kale salad for us, and I couldn’t wait to make it at home and post it for you.  In the process of raving about it on Facebook, I found…

Sweet Potato Fries with Garlic & Fried Sage

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 21, 2010 at 7:49am

I posted this recipe a few weeks ago at Dara & Co./Minnesota Monthly Magazine.  It’s hard to say much more about Sweet Potato Fries than: They are easy.  They are delicious. I spotted sweet potatoes at the farmers market the other day and immediately imagined sweet potato “fries,” roasted in the oven until tender and…

San Francisco Part II: The Food, and Crispy Fried Tofu

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 18, 2010 at 7:15pm

Gorgeous, hip, fun, smart, and famously delicious – San Francisco is my dream town.  I regret that I was so busy with the BlogHer Food blogging conference I attended that I didn’t get to do much sightseeing.  But I did enjoy several fantastic, not-Minnesota meals, and of course incredible California wine. Here’s the overview in…

Homemade Applesauce

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 28, 2010 at 5:16pm

I hated applesauce as a kid.  (I realize how many blog posts I begin by mentioning a food I hated as a kid.  I do it to reassure you, and myself, that picky children often become enthusiastic cooks and eaters.  So hang in there if you’re feeding the seemingly impossible.) I hated its grainy, watery…

Pot Roast with Sherry, Onions, Thyme, & Sour Cream

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 19, 2010 at 6:30pm

OK, I gave in, but just a teeny tiny bit.  I’m still grilling, but I was so chilly last night and today that somehow a chuck roast found its way into my grocery cart and lo, a pot roast was born.  We need some braising birth control around here stat – aka sunshine! warmth! –…

Leftovers for Lunch: Chickpea Flour Pancake

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 13, 2010 at 10:12am

I’ll just cut to the chase – there is no better way to eat leftovers than atop a chickpea flour pancake.  The pancake itself is so flavorful, it could breathe new life into almost any topping.  It also takes 3 minutes to make – chickpea flour, stirred with some water, fried in a tiny bit…

Eggplant Caviar

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 8, 2010 at 1:28pm

My family is more than a little obsessed with the eggplant spread – or melitzanosalata – at It’s Greek to Me.  The creamy eggplant is perfectly balanced with lemon, garlic, fresh herbs, and salt.  Nathan and I could sit down with just that, and a mountain of pillowy, hot-off-the-griddle pita bread, and stuff ourselves like…

Berry Baking Bonanza! Summer Berry Crumbles

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 19, 2010 at 9:56am

Every time I go to the farmer’s market, I come home with more berries – yesterday I found strawberries still poking around, and raspberries and blueberries out in force. Man do I love this time of year! If you, like I, get a little carried away and buy far more berries than your family can…

Summer Appetizer: Smoky Chipotle Guacamole

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 18, 2010 at 3:12pm

If you’ve eaten at Barrio Tequila Bar lately (and if you haven’t, you should…), you’ll recognize this guacamole presentation, with sliced jalapenos and radishes.  I copied it because I’m absolutely smitten with the extra crunch and heat of the raw vegetables – as if I needed yet another reason to love guacamole. Or anything at…
