Korean Bulgogi (Grilled Steak)

Behold one of my first successful big dinner party entrees. How the heck I stumbled upon a recipe for Korean Bulgogi at that stage of my life, decidedly pre-Internet, is beyond me but hey! My boyfriend and I were house-sitting for my parents, playing grown-ups in my family’s familiar kitchen, made new because it was…

Vietnamese Pork Skewers

How lovely was it to sleep with the windows open last night? This mid-July cool breeze is as welcome as pork on the grill, especially pork wrapped in butter lettuce leaves with the punch of fish sauce, chiles, mint, and fresh lime. Palates tingle and everyone sleeps well when refreshment abounds. This dish comes together…

Grilled Watermelon Salad with Cherry Tomatoes & Charred Beets

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 12, 2012 at 1:50pm

I got clocked on the head by an acorn last night during my after-dinner walk. Ouch! And not because it actually hurt, but because of what the acorn was telling me: “Summer is winding down and September is almost here, my dear.” Aw, shucks. But not shucks! Because September is the best food month of…

Grilled Butterflied Shrimp

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 24, 2012 at 1:44pm

These butterflied shrimp are more of a technique than a recipe, a simple way to grill truly shrimpy shrimp. Shrimp shells are where the flavor is at – even if you’re preparing shelled shrimp for a salad or pasta, keep the shells! Either freeze them in an airtight plastic bag or make quick batches of…

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 10, 2011 at 7:19am

The play of hot against cold, tender against crunchy, preferably with a salty-sweet vinaigrette, hits enough texture and flavor notes to transform a simple salad into a meal. Use this recipe as a formula to play with all summer long, as other vegetables come into the market. My recipe for Grilled Asparagus Salad with Bacon…

Grilled Shrimp Tostadas with Spicy Slaw

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 12, 2010 at 3:45pm

I posted this recipe a few weeks ago at Dara & Co./Minnesota Monthly Magazine.  It may be mid-October, but it’s still warm enough to grill & chill outside.  Strange, but we’ll take it, so go for the grill – yes! Warm sun, cool breezes, my favorite time of year has arrived!  Open windows, evening walks,…

Happy Labor Day!  Are you stopping by for a little last-minute holiday cooking inspiration?  I have to confess that this day rather snuck up on me too – denial that summer is ending, I suppose.  If you’re running to the market today, wanting to pull something festive together for later this evening, here are some…
