Fresh Tomato Sauce to Eat on Everything

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 25, 2010 at 8:57am

I posted this recipe a few weeks ago at Dara & Co./Minnesota Monthly.  It’s no longer hot & humid in Minnesota – in fact, we turned on the heat this morning, brrr! – but there are still piles of fat, ripe tomatoes around, just perfect for making this addictive sauce. Thanks to my seasonal pessimism,…

Roasted Cauliflower with Pancetta & Garlic (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 22, 2010 at 5:30pm

It is so dark today (in Minnesota), I’m lucky I was able to take a recognizable photo. Flash flood warnings abound, as apparently we’re about to be deluged with days of cold, fall rain. Good times. To cheer myself up, I just add pork, to just about anything, and really, I feel better. I made…

Pot Roast with Sherry, Onions, Thyme, & Sour Cream

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 19, 2010 at 6:30pm

OK, I gave in, but just a teeny tiny bit. I’m still grilling, but I was so chilly last night and today that somehow a chuck roast found its way into my grocery cart and lo, a pot roast was born. We need some braising birth control around here stat – aka sunshine! warmth! –…

Crustless Spinach & Leek Quiches

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 17, 2010 at 10:32am

I’m supposed to be preparing for a dinner party we’re hosting this evening, so this post is going to be short-n-sweet! Which is fine, since these quiches are short-n-sweet too, and really, what’s to say about quiche? Eggs + cheese = heaven. There you go. Oh wait, I do have one note of explanation: I…

Leftovers for Lunch: Chickpea Flour Pancake

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 13, 2010 at 10:12am

I’ll just cut to the chase – there is no better way to eat leftovers than atop a chickpea flour pancake. The pancake itself is so flavorful, it could breathe new life into almost any topping. It also takes 3 minutes to make – chickpea flour, stirred with some water, fried in a tiny bit…

End of Summer Cooking: Grilled Eggplant Parmesan

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 12, 2010 at 4:33pm

This post was supposed to be about the lovely-sounding spinach custard that I made the other day…except that it failed miserably. I had a feeling, as I put it in a 400-degree oven (as directed), that bad things were about to happen. Custard and high heat usually mean a weeping, watery mess… …and that’s what…

Pork Tenderloin with Fresh Apple Salsa

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 5, 2010 at 6:42pm

Apple season has arrived! And while I consider pork in season all year long, it’s hard to find a more classic September pairing than pork roast with apples. This pretty version, with a raw apple salsa spooned over grilled pork tenderloin, bridges summer-into-fall nicely. See if you can keep yourself from eating the salsa straight…

A Good Hash

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 5, 2010 at 6:09pm

I’m a bit ahead of the curve here, assuming that you have leftover roast of any sort in early September. (Reveals my fatalistic if-summer’s-over-then-it-must-be-winter attitude.) But just in case… I personally had a few lovely slices of leftover boneless, skin-on turkey breast, which I’d rubbed with herbs and olive oil and grilled until nicely crispy….

Ratatouille with a Poached Egg

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 3, 2010 at 7:35pm

With eggplants of every size and shape at the markets, as well as more than a few chilly evenings under our belts, I’ve been dreaming of a hearty, chunky ratatouille. But like most adults and children alike, I’ve also wanted to try the Ratatouille movie version of ratatouille, with paper thin slices of eggplant, peppers,…

Late Summer Dinner: Fresh Corn Pudding

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 30, 2010 at 2:58pm

It’s traditional to serve corn pudding alongside a crusty roast or ham, and of course it’s delicious that way. But I like it best as the star of the meal, served like a souffle with simply sauteed vegetables. (Try diced zucchini, sauteed in a little butter with garlic, with halved cherry tomatoes and fresh thyme…
