Crispy Chicken Salad with Peaches, Corn & Green Beans (Paleo, Primal) and Gascony, France

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 10, 2019 at 2:27pm

Oh my stars I am going to miss summer produce. That’s a little trick that I employ, by the way, to keep myself from taking even one bite of this gloriousness for granted – I remind myself that these treasures of perfect corn, peaches, and green beans are temporary delights. It’s not a sad reminder. In fact,…

Summer Barbecue Menus (Paleo/AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 28, 2019 at 3:07pm

Hellooooo July 4th Partiers! Yeah, I’m even talking to you AIPers and those on an elimination diet. I would argue that if you’re 1) working on your health, 2) trying to uncover food sensitivities, 3) addressing an autoimmune disease, or 4) trying to lose weight, it’s MORE important than ever to entertain and socialize. Deciding…

Roasted Grapes with Pork Tenderloin Cutlets (AIP, Paleo)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 23, 2017 at 9:06am

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…

Happy Mother’s Day! I’m being totally selfish and sharing with you what *I* would love for Mother’s Day: cool, creamy, sweet panna cotta. It is absolutely one of my Top 5 favorite desserts as evidenced by how many recipes I’ve shared with you here over the years. I appreciate that you can control the sweetness…

Schaum Torte (Paleo, Primal)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 13, 2017 at 9:48am

Happy Spring! Meringues and pavlovas make for such light, impressive, and naturally grain-free spring desserts. If you want to go the individual shell route, see the Pavlovas with Lime Curd that pastry chef extraordinnaire Zoe Francois shared with me a few years back. Or, you can bake the meringue as one whole, in a spring form…

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 7, 2016 at 5:00am

I hope you had a lovely July 4th weekend! Isn’t summer just The Best? I did all of my favorite things – farmers market, slept in, walked, hit golf balls, created recipes, wrote, took pictures, sat in the sun, tidied my house, read. The highlight was spending the 4th at Stephanie March’s with Tracy Morgan and Joy…

Sweet & Sour Rhubarb Compote (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 23, 2015 at 8:34pm

Did you know that rhubarb is an aphrodisiac? Don’t tell the Lutherans (I’m Lutheran by baptism, for the record), but it is, and it likely explains why we all go gaga for the stuff. In fact, I have a theory that anything that captures Pinterest’s collective imagination is an aphrodisiac. Yes, that means we are…

Quick Melon Soup (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 20, 2014 at 2:23pm

It’s not too late, it’s not too late! There are still fantastic melons – cantaloupes and watermelons are my fave, but honeydew is lovely too – to be had at the farmers market, so don’t be too annoyed with me for being so lazy about getting this post up.I was inspired to make melon soup…

Cherry, Kale & Kombucha Smoothie (AIP, Paleo)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 29, 2014 at 12:41pm

Now that *poof* it’s hot outside, I’m suddenly in the mood for smoothies. I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with them, mostly because they are billed everywhere as healthy and then whoa, they are loaded with way too much fruit and horrible manufactured protein powders. Not healthy. On the other hand, they’re an…
