Grilled Corn on the Cob with Chipotle Butter

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 25, 2010 at 4:06pm

I include this recipe here today in honor of the Great Minnesota Get Together, aka the Minnesota State Fair, which begins tomorrow. The grilled corn at the State Fair is sick it’s so good. Don’t watch while they drench – drench! – it in melted butter and you’ll enjoy it completely. When I was a…

Summer Tomato Soup with Chipotle Cream

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 10, 2010 at 7:34am

It was 96 degrees today, dripping with humidity, a mean fist of heat that punched me in the face each time I was stupid enough to open the door.  Needless to say, not a day for ovens or cooktops or hot soup. And yet…I made this soup anyhow.  I made it because it’s the best…

Summer Appetizer: Smoky Chipotle Guacamole

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 18, 2010 at 3:12pm

If you’ve eaten at Barrio Tequila Bar lately (and if you haven’t, you should…), you’ll recognize this guacamole presentation, with sliced jalapeños and radishes. I copied it because I’m absolutely smitten with the extra crunch and heat of the raw vegetables – as if I needed yet another reason to love guacamole. Or anything at…

Grilled Steaks with Herb Butter

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 12, 2010 at 12:08pm

May I suggest adding a pat of herb butter to your grilled steaks? The butter melts over the hot beef, of course, pooling with the steak’s juices to create an obscenely addictive sauce. It’s a classic bistro presentation, alongside pommes frites, and is so delicious that you’ll soon be adding pats to everything. Grilled fish,…

Sangriaah!

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 9, 2010 at 3:40pm

John and I love to sip sangria on a warm evening, despite the fact that it goes down like dangerously icy buttah. Beware the smooth deliciousness – there’s alcohol in that glass even if it doesn’t taste like it. John in particular is a fan of Masa’s sangrias, one sparkling, one white, and one red….

Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 8, 2010 at 11:08am

Suffering in this heat wave? I suggest a little cool, creamy heaven. Save the egg whites and make Schaum Torte a few days later. Ice cream and meringue, the yin and yang of desserts. You heard it here first. The sun’s hot, mosquitoes are biting, I’m sipping gin & tonics, and I’m craving ice cream—’round…

Ooh! Aah!

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 5, 2010 at 3:59pm

I cooked my brains out this weekend and loved every minute of it. See Saturday’s results – icy cold gazpacho, as well as poached eggs over potato pancakes – below. Both are new favorites, and why not? Crunchy, creamy, salty. Pretty much everything I crave. So where, you might wonder, are the pics of Sunday’s pork…

Potato-Asparagus Frittata

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 12, 2010 at 8:27pm

You’re home from work, tired, starving, needing something warm and nourishing. Don’t forget about eggs, a staple in our kitchen, showing up for lunch and dinner as often as for breakfast. We poach, fry, flip, boil, and scramble them into any number of our favorite dishes, included this easy, delicious frittata. Basically an open-faced omelet,…

Farmer’s Market Potato Salad

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 8, 2010 at 1:18pm

This salad – Potato Salad with Morels, Asparagus & Basil Vinaigrette – hails from the fantastic blog, Gluten-Free Girl and The Chef. Potatoes with morels, a killer combination, right? (Anything with morels…) I noticed right away that the recipe is wonderfully adaptable to whatever is in season, so when I spotted the first batch of…

Hearty Summer Soup

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 8, 2010 at 7:21am

Asparagus is at its peak right now – don’t miss it! Grilled, roasted, blanched…all fabulous, but make sure to save a bunch for this lovely soup. (Or for this potato-asparagus frittata, which I posted last week.) Here’s a simple, flavorful soup that makes delicious use of spring and summer produce.  In this version I include…
