Quinoa Tabbouleh

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 21, 2012 at 4:10pm

While the rest of my garden is toast, the parsley lives on, just begging me to make tabbouleh salad. Except tabbouleh is made with bulgur, which is wheat, which I can’t eat. Damn it! Enter quinoa, the grain that is conveniently a gluten-free seed, hey. I’m not as obsessed with quinoa as some, but in…

Doug Flicker’s Collard Greens from Come In, We’re Closed

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 16, 2012 at 12:24pm

I just returned last night from a weekend of eating my way through New York. While we had a killer time eating very special things, I thought on several occasions…I eat better than this in Minneapolis. What?! But yes! I’ve been thinking this on the last few trips I’ve taken, especially pork dishes, which I…

Outstanding in the Field 2012 at Little Foot Farm. And Coffee Custards with Honey & Cinnamon!

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 10, 2012 at 7:46am

Remember August? It sure was pretty… August 9, in fact, was the Outstanding in the Field farm dinner at Little Foot Farm in Afton, Minnesota. Little Foot raises heritage breed hogs so it’s no surprise that this dinner was a celebration of pork, pork, and more pork. Thanks to chef Mike Phillips of Three Sons…

Pork Burgers

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 9, 2012 at 10:58am

Burger maniacs (including myself), I have a proposition for you (us)…pork burgers! Why do we all not eat pork burgers? I’m not suggesting that beef burgers are anything but delectable, but I have been pondering – given the borderline gastronomic insanity over bacon, pork belly, and charcuterie – why the heck isn’t a fabulously juicy,…

Roasted Tomato Soup

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 25, 2012 at 4:54pm

Despite our first frost, there are still plenty of tomatoes kicking around! Make a double batch of this easy soup and freeze it for a mid-winter’s treat. Or eat it all hot from the pot, which is a good plan too. I make this soup all season long by roasting tomatoes as I pick them,…

Pear Tart with Almond-Thyme Crust & Honey Whipped Cream (Gluten-Free!)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 19, 2012 at 5:26am

In my world, ’tis the true season of giving right exactly now, when friends share the bounty of their gardens and the lovely jams, syrups, salsas, booze, and pickles made to stretch summer and fall into winter. My own garden is planted primarily with heirloom tomatoes (thanks to the amazing Heidi Skoog, she of Serious…

Hominy with Brown Butter & Crispy Sage

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 11, 2012 at 5:53pm

If you’ve only had hominy in pozole or other Mexican-inspired dishes, you’re missing out. Hominy is corn that has been dried and then soaked in lime water to soften and puff the kernels. Simmering hominy in broth softens the kernels even further, resulting in dumpling-like little pillows just begging to deliver brown butter to your…

Fall Soups: Twin Cities Live

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 8, 2012 at 8:39pm

I had a blast chatting fall soups on Twin Cities Live this week! I specifically talked about Coconut Curry Sweet Corn Soup, but also brought along Pozole (pork braised with chiles and hominy) and a Chicken Vegetable Soup that’s pretty much the perfect post-Thanksgiving soup (obviously made with turkey not chicken – please forgive me…

Swimming in tomatoes yet? Even if not, make this gorgeous gazpacho anyhow – it’s one of my very favorite versions of everyone’s favorite summer treat. Recipe for Gazpacho at Andrew Zimmern’s Kitchen Adventures/Food & Wine Magazine.

Arancini (Fried Risotto Balls)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 28, 2012 at 10:29am

Like some sort of mad fryentist, give me a pan of hot oil and I will riff on and on and on… See Fried Cheese Curds for what was really Part II of my latest fry tear (and a delicious one at that). Part I began last Friday night, when my cousin Kelly and her husband Jomo…
