Swedish Pea Soup

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 5, 2010 at 7:50am

This isn’t exactly a Spring dish (see this Hearty Summer Soup for a more seasonal option), but it’s so delicious I’m going to post it anyhow. I’ve made split pea soup a million times, love it.  I know that my dad & stepmom Susanna like it too, and since they were coming to stay for a few…

Easy Cream Scones

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 29, 2010 at 8:13pm

You might think you don’t like scones, and I wouldn’t blame you. Coffee shop versions are often hideous—crumbly, dry little bricks. Good for making you thirsty for coffee, I guess, but not much else. Unless… You bake them yourself. Yes! Don’t worry, there’s nothing to making these easy, delicious scones except a good appetite. They…

Pizza with Potatoes, Pancetta, and Ramps

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 27, 2010 at 8:33am

Have you noticed the buzz about ramps and wondered what’s up? Ramps are wild onions that taste like mild garlic and when they show up in markets, it’s a sure sign that spring has sprung. Lalalaaa! I suspect that’s why they make spring-fevered foodies a bit crazy.  And like fava beans, morel mushrooms, and fiddle-head ferns,…

Chicken Lo Mein

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 24, 2010 at 10:10am

I love family-friendly spaghetti with meat sauce as much as anyone (for a great recipe, check out the version my friend Maud posted on food52 this week, her mom’s famous recipe, secret ingredient…a pinch of curry powder, can’t wait to try it). But I like to mix up our pasta selections as well, especially given…

Leftovers for Lunch: Black Bean & Rice Burritos

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 15, 2010 at 12:39pm

When I serve rice for dinner, I make extra so I have leftovers for a delicious, easy lunch. Even still, given how much rice my family can put away, that means sneaking some out of the pot and into the fridge before we eat. I use the stolen rice the next day to make myself…

Favas + Asparagus = Spring!

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 9, 2010 at 6:09pm

Fava beans are back in the markets and that means Spring! I bought a bunch at Whole Foods, as well as a bunch of asparagus, and sauteed the two with a little garlic, in perhaps a little butter, and ate them – fresh and earthy – over creamy polenta. Pure Spring comfort, eaten with a…

Mache Salad with Hazelnuts, Dried Cherries, & Goat Cheese. Or Not.

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 8, 2010 at 3:46pm

Or Arugula Salad with Walnuts, Apples, & Cheddar. Or Frisee Salad with Almonds, Pears, & Gorgonzola. You see where I’m going. The recipe below can be altered, riffed on, adjusted endlessly. Use what’s in season, or your favorite combination, or whatever sounds perfect with your entree. All that matters is that you end up with…

Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 6, 2010 at 10:19am

Back from Seattle, although not back from the double-whammy sinus infection/bronchitis that hit me the day before we left. My son and I did our best to dig in and really experience the city, but given that I could hardly breathe, we didn’t get very far. Luckily we had a lovely hotel room at Inn…

Stuffed Portabella Mushrooms

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 30, 2010 at 6:16pm

Stuffed mushrooms are the way I learned to love mushrooms as a kid – apparently I would eat almost anything with stuffing in them. I still love stuffed mushrooms, so once in awhile I make myself a large portobello version for a light lunch or dinner. I tend to make just one for myself, but…

Saturday Brunch: Baby Artichokes with Ham, Baby Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 27, 2010 at 11:28am

Saturday brunch! It’s my special John-n-Stephanie thing, and I love it like I love puppies and sunshine and champagne and straight hair. And I love those things very, very much, so now you know how much I love Saturday brunch.             We don’t have our kids on Saturday mornings (divorce…
