Browned Butter: Savory or Sweet

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 12, 2013 at 9:48am

Browned butter (beurre noisette), is having its moment in the spotlight for good reason. Not that butter isn’t beautiful on its own, but a few minutes of carefully applied heat transforms its subtle sweet saltiness to nutty brown cheesiness, creating a rather magical sauce in the process. If you’ve ever bathed your palate in the…

Chickpea Flour Frittata

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 4, 2013 at 2:05pm

You’ve worked late, or have been chauffeuring kids all evening, or were out late with friends. You walk in the door exhausted and starving, craving something more substantial than a bowl of cereal. This hot, fast, pleasantly filling frittata is what to make, especially if you can scrounge a few vegetables from the cooler, whether…

Morel Flan

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 2, 2013 at 9:48pm

Sometimes, when the weather is dark and cold, and so is life in general, one just needs to get the hell out of town. Both circumstances were true back in April, when my lovely friend Kathy Yerich suggested a road-trip down to southern Indiana for the Brown County Morel Mushroom Festival. I’ve written about Kathy…

Morel Burgers with Ramps

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 30, 2013 at 11:51am

Happy National Burger Day! In celebration, I present a grass-fed beef/pork combo, laced with ramps and topped with buttery morels and a quick red wine pan sauce. I would have topped it with a fried egg, but given there’s an egg in the mix, I thought that was a bit over-the-top. That said, you could…

Asparagus Soup with Pecans & Brown Butter

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 15, 2013 at 9:49am

Asparagus is of course one of spring’s best treats. Whether steamed, roasted, or sauteed, everyone adores asparagus snuggled up to eggs or salty ham or even better, both! But my personal favorite is butttery asparagus, especially showered with toasted nuts. This soup puts a good amount of asparagus to creamy use, with brown butter and…

Thai-Style Fried Not-Rice (Grain-free, Gluten-free)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 10, 2013 at 9:18am

If you, like I, set strange challenges for yourself like to eat vegetables for three meals a day as often as possible, you will adore this recipe. It’s a flavor- and color-packed way to start a day, but of course would make a terrific lunch or dinner. In my mind it exists in the realm…

Grain-free Gluten-free "Bread"

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 27, 2013 at 8:29am

I saw a recipe for this bread on the terrific blog Against All Grain. As I’ve noted before, I find eating even gluten-free grains inflammatory (and with a bigger carbohydrate punch than I can get away with, unless I want to gain weight and feel exhausted…). You could call this way of eating Paleo, but…

Quinoa Cakes topped with…a Poached Egg. But of Course.

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 26, 2013 at 6:46pm

Here’s a thing: my husband and I are divorcing. It’s exactly as sad and stressful as one might imagine, so I’ve been taking extra steps to take really good care of myself. I already know that eating corn and rice makes be feel pretty lousy – not as lousy as eating gluten – but lethargic…

Whole Fish Baked in Salt Crust with Fennel & Olives

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 24, 2013 at 12:30pm

I had the pleasure just a few short weeks ago of doing a cooking demo at the Minneapolis Home & Garden Show with Sea Change executive chef Jamie Malone. Since the show, Malone was named to Food & Wine Magazine‘s list of Best New Chefs 2013! Very exciting for her, and for Minneapolis. If you’re…

Summer Promise Bubbles

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 16, 2013 at 5:08pm

Last week I shared green juice and flatbread pizza recipes that are perfect for using up farmers market or CSA box produce. This week, same goal, just add booze! In honor of Earth Day (April 22), I used Prairie Vodka, carefully made right here in Minnesota from organic corn (gluten-free!). It’s a beautiful collaboration, among…
