Coconut Pork Lettuce Wraps (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 27, 2015 at 1:26pm

Let’s talk babies! Even though my son is 19 years old now, and 6’5″ tall, ┬áhe’s still a baby in my mind. Blame Mother’s Day and the pregnancy of my friend Joy Summers, who recently gave birth to her perfect rosebud of a daughter, Baby CC. You guys, I haven’t held a newborn baby in…

Ginger Scallion Beef Stir-Fry (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 5, 2015 at 11:55am

Do you make the mistake of cooking alone ALL THE TIME? I mean, if cooking alone is your meditation and therapy, then by all means om away. But if you feel a bit sizzly and pouty about solo chopping, then it’s time to enlist a sous chef or two. Food is supposed to be fun…

Pressure Cooker (or Braised) Pork Carnitas and Roasted Cauliflower Rice (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jan 26, 2015 at 4:59pm

Happy Monday! As I chat with people about the obstacles of adopting a real food lifestyle, I’ve come to realize that one of the biggest is the fear of standing out and/or annoying people. Which is totally legitimate, I’ve had those same concerns. It’s comforting and useful to be a peacekeeper. But conformity has its…

What better way to give you a peek into the lusciousness inside Twin Cities Chef’s Table than to share a recipe for Brasa’s beloved roasted pork shoulder? I never, ever eat there without ordering it – in fact, I had it just yesterday for lunch – because it tastes fantastic with all of the other…

Pan-Roasted Chicken with Figs & Mushrooms (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 7, 2014 at 8:41pm

The chicken is secondary in this recipe as far as I’m concerned – this dish is about the fresh figs. When perfectly ripe, figs are of course delectable eaten out of hand. But by applying just a bit of heat – either by running them under the broiler or searing them briefly in a bit…

Pot Roast with Kale & Horseradish

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 30, 2014 at 6:41pm

I’m back with another braised beef dish! I’ll pretend like I meant to post recipes for beef short ribs and beef pot roast within a couple of weeks of each other, a braised beef series of sorts…except that would be untrue. I’m really just busy, and kind of chilly with the change in temps, and…

Halibut Coconut Milk Stew with Roasted Squash (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 23, 2014 at 2:39pm

While I might bemoan the slow fading away of summer – and oh, I do bemoan it, loudly – there’s no denying the deliciousness of winter squash, in full display at every market and grocery store right about now. The acorn varieties are my personal favorite, particularly the jester (stripe-y like a delicata but shaped…

Braised Beef Short Ribs: Braise Once, Eat Twice or More

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 16, 2014 at 3:54pm

Aaaand just like that, it’s braising season. Good, given I’ve been braising all summer long anyhow. I’m a big fan of batch cooking – cooking enough food to last a few meals – and there’s no better way to batch cook than to braise, no matter the season. Whether you cook low-and-slow in your oven…

Shrimp Chopped Salad with Figs, Squash & Bacon | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 11, 2014 at 5:18pm

I was going to call this End-of-Summer Salad but that seemed a bit too bleak. The markets are still loaded with peak-season produce at least for a couple more weeks – chin up!To me, a good entree salad is loaded with a variety of colors, textures, and flavors. If it doesn’t hit more than a…
