Grilled Salmon with Avocado, Egg, Greens, & Mustard Vinaigrette

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 28, 2010 at 7:07pm

As I’ve complained before, it’s hard to find good salmon in Minnesota. I know, we’re in the middle of the country, about as far from any ocean as you can get in North America. It’s an unimportant problem. My not-terribly-local solution is that I buy wild salmon filets online from VitalChoice, the king salmon to…

A Sweet Spoonful’s Strawberry Ice Cream

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 27, 2010 at 2:45pm

Remember when I wrote about the mind-blowing experience I had at the Penny De Los Santos food photography workshop I attended in March? The reasons were many and varied, namely the San Francisco sunshine, Contigo’s gorgeous food, a hundred million great ideas from Penny, pushing way out of my comfort zone, and meeting three unbelievably…

Weekend Grilling: Pork Tenderloin Tacos

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 21, 2010 at 8:55am

It’s going to be 90 sultry degrees here in Minneapolis on Sunday. Ugh. I’m not going to complain (is “ugh” a complaint?), but I’m not quite prepared for that level of heat and humidity. Guess I’ll just have to grab a cold beverage and head out to the grill…tough, I know. If you’re looking for…

Whole Barbecued Chicken

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 20, 2010 at 6:32pm

I half ruined this whole barbecued chicken and it was still so provocatively delicious that John and I attacked it (and each other, get back!) like wolves. Snip, snap, gone. Wow, dudes, if you have not heeded my unpaid over-representation of the Weber poultry roaster (I have no relationship with Weber), heed it now. It…

No-Fail Pork Ribs and Tangy Coleslaw

No-fail pork ribs

These falling-off-the-bone ribs almost make themselves. Alongside crunchy slaw, they’ll make your Memorial Day barbecue! So, the countdown to Memorial Day continues… Last week, I suggested strawberry shortcakes for a post-barbecue dessert. This week, the barbecue’s main show: no-fail pork ribs for grill novices (and experts) alongside crunchy, tangy coleslaw. The ribs are a bit of a…

Korean-Style Grilled Beef

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 14, 2010 at 10:25am

Here’s a fast way to jazz up your weekend steaks. I’ve posted this recipe for Korean Bulgogi before, but it deserves another look on a sunny Friday. It finally stopped raining here which means improved moods and…grill time! Yes! This marinade is perfect for a top sirloin (although I had strip steaks in the freezer;…

Swedish Pea Soup

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 5, 2010 at 7:50am

This isn’t exactly a Spring dish (see this Hearty Summer Soup for a more seasonal option), but it’s so delicious I’m going to post it anyhow. I’ve made split pea soup a million times, love it.  I know that my dad & stepmom Susanna like it too, and since they were coming to stay for a few…

Silken Tofu with Soba Noodles

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 30, 2010 at 8:19am

This is a quickie lunch or dinner idea, very basic but satisfying and packed with flavor. Remember when I first posted Mark Bittman-via-Jean-George’s ginger fried rice and commented that I’d be riffing on the delicious theme for years to come? Well here’s one riff. I was so taken with the crave-worthy combination of leeks sauteed…

Favas + Asparagus = Spring!

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 9, 2010 at 6:09pm

Fava beans are back in the markets and that means Spring! I bought a bunch at Whole Foods, as well as a bunch of asparagus, and sauteed the two with a little garlic, in perhaps a little butter, and ate them – fresh and earthy – over creamy polenta. Pure Spring comfort, eaten with a…

Tandoori Chicken Skewers with Cucumber Raita

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 24, 2010 at 6:13pm

Spring has sprung in Minnesota, at least for this week, lalalaaaa! Birds are singing, I’m singing, I’m grilling, birds are grilling, the sun is shining, and all is right in the world.                           The heat feels good, everywhere, even on my tongue. I…
