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, sipped fauxtails, read. The highlight was spending the 4th at Stephanie March’s with…

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…

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…

Strawberry Heaven Part II: Grain-Free, Gluten-Free Strawberry Shortcakes

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 6, 2013 at 6:53pm

I made the almond flour biscuit recipe on Elana’s Pantry blog and they are fantastic! Perfect, in fact, for grain- and gluten-free strawberry shortcakes. I used real butter (instead of margarine) and maple syrup (instead of agave syrup) with a wonderful result. Split while hot, spread with butter, fill with lightly sweetened strawberries, top with…

Strawberry Heaven!

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 6, 2013 at 2:42pm

Strawberry time! Geez, finally, like everything in Minnesota this year, they took their sweet time ripening & readying for picking. But here they are, making everyone happy and hungry for strawberry summer treats. I received a whole flat of freshly-picked strawberries from my friend chef Scott Pampuch. After blanketing juicy slices in buttermilk pancakes for…
