Shrimp & Pork “Dumpling” Soup (Paleo, Primal, AIP, Whole30)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Feb 9, 2019 at 3:17pm

Broth bosses! I have a few fresh new moves that I think you’ll really enjoy. It’s been shockingly cold in Minnesota – even for Minnesota – and when that happens, it’s either time to leave town or head for the kitchen. (Or a bath, but you don’t need a recipe for that. Or do you?…

I’m here visiting my brother David and sister Etta – in fact, my whole family is here – and even though I don’t ski, I am having a BLAST walking around the beautiful downtown, writing, cooking, and catching up with my favorite people. Since you’re busy busy…

Happy Almost New Year! I taught a Paleo Holiday Appetizers class at Kitchen in the Market last week. I don’t know about you, but few things are more fun for me than eating a bunch of appetizers for dinner! Bring on meatballs, sticky wings, and stuffed mushrooms and I am a happy partier. For the…

Braised Chicken in a Pot (Paleo, AIP, Whole30, Primal) and Tips for a Good Braise

It snowed in Minneapolis this week and BAM, just like that I hopped into winter mode, so fast I took my own breath away. Where just the week before I was sweating it out in my kitchen in a tank top and bare feet, exactly 7 days later I was lighting candles, soaking in a…

Roasted Grapes with Pork Tenderloin Cutlets (AIP, Paleo)

Jams, sorbets, crisps, and cobblers are all delectable tricks for managing the bounty of the season and we should all continue to employ (and devour) them as often as possible. But in case you’re as smitten with the savory side of fruit as I am, roasting fruit with fresh herbs and olive oil is a…

Grilled Peaches with Ricotta, Crispy Prosciutto & Basil (Primal/Paleo, AIP, Whole30 Adaptable)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 12, 2017 at 9:24am

Oh man, it’s peach season, my favorite! I know I say they’re all my favorite – strawberries, blueberries, cherries – and that’s because they are. I love summer fruits, probably because I don’t eat all that much sugar otherwise, so I am in HEAVEN right now. The idea for this appetizer – or breakfast/brunch, my son…

Hellllloooooo official summer! Summer actually began for me when my son Nathan got home from school in May, so I feel like I’ve been in the groove for at least a few weeks. I LOVE when he’s home! He’s super busy with an internship, his girlfriend Sam, and going out with friends, but even just…

Happy Weekend, my friends. I didn’t say Happy Memorial Day because the spirit of the day isn’t exactly happy. I think of it as a day for reflection and remembrance and even grief. Some people fret about the barbecues and partying that mark the holiday but I liken it to the meal after a funeral – gathering together with…

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 17, 2017 at 6:45am

Do you batch cook (i.e. prepare large amounts of food) and freeze some of the bounty for later meals? If not, I suggest giving it a try because it’s a great way to guarantee that you eat nutritious, home-cooked food (instead of take-out or ordering in) on tired, busy nights. I’ll be honest, my freezer used…
