Popovers

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Dec 21, 2011 at 2:03pm

It actually hurt me a little bit to bake a pan of popovers for the photo. I don’t miss many things since giving up gluten – mostly good beer, honestly – but oh, popovers! Truly the world’s most perfect butter delivery vehicle, soft and eggy, steamy and crusty, marvelously ragged with melted-butter-pooling crevices. In college,…

Thanksgiving 2011

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Nov 28, 2011 at 12:36pm

Thanksgiving kicked off when my dad pulled up to the house last Tuesday afternoon, fresh from a quail hunt in Tennessee. My stepmom Susanna flew in a few hours later from Sheridan, Wyoming, their now home. My house and kitchen were immediately improved. Dad sharpened my knives and starting halving and marinating quail in buttermilk…

Spicy, tender Pumpkin Cake to eat warm with whipped cream. Lovely for dessert, but devoured ’round these parts…for breakfast! When we ran out of whipped cream I just poured heavy cream over warm pieces, in a bowl, and made my son very happy. A little grating of fresh nutmeg over the top is a nice…

Last Thanksgiving was my first since giving up gluten, so to keep things easy, I just skipped eating my favorite part of my favorite meal…the dressing. Boo! I really missed it, as much as I dig turkey and mashed potatoes. Which is very, very much. This year, particularly since I’m hosting, I decided to play…

On the Lighter Side

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Dec 27, 2010 at 12:01pm

I am stuffed to the max from rich holiday foods.  Even though I was successful in avoiding gluten and grains, the salt really catches up to me.  Puff city.  And after a week of heavier foods, salads, fish, and brothy soups just sound so right to me. While these recipes aren’t new, I thought you…

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…

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…
