Beef, Bacon & Kale Meatballs (AIP, Paleo)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 17, 2017 at 6:45am

Do you batch cook (i.e. prepare large amounts of food) and freeze some of the bounty for later meals? If not, I suggest giving it a try because it’s a great way to guarantee that you eat nutritious, home-cooked food (instead of take-out or ordering in) on tired, busy nights. I’ll be honest, my freezer used…

Crusty Roasted Pork Shoulder (Paleo, AIP, Whole30)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 15, 2017 at 10:12am

You’d think, after the several pork shoulder recipes I’ve shared with you over the years, that I wouldn’t need to keep playing with new techniques. But I loooooooove me some pork shoulder and I got a hankering one day for a roast that was both falling apart tender AND crusty on the outside. So I…

Thanksgiving 2016 Menu

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Nov 17, 2016 at 9:03pm

I taught my Paleo Thanksgiving class at Kitchen in the Market last Friday and wanted to share the recipes with you all. I LOVE Thanksgiving, every single part of it. Planning, shopping, cooking on my own ahead of time and then with the gang on the big day, setting the table, being with my family,…

Cold Peanut-Sesame “Noodles” (Grain-free, Gluten-free)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 8, 2016 at 11:44am

I had the pleasure of chatting about cooking and healthy eating tips with a group of smart and lovely people at Weber Shandwick PR this past Friday. Given we were talking in an office conference room, there wasn’t the option to cook a dish for them, so I made the group an easy and flavor-packed cold dish that…

Sweet & Sour Rhubarb Compote (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 23, 2015 at 8:34pm

Did you know that rhubarb is an aphrodisiac? Don’t tell the Lutherans (I’m Lutheran by baptism, for the record), but it is, and it likely explains why we all go gaga for the stuff. In fact, I have a theory that anything that captures Pinterest’s collective imagination is an aphrodisiac. Yes, that means we are…

Quick Melon Soup (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 20, 2014 at 2:23pm

It’s not too late, it’s not too late! There are still fantastic melons – cantaloupes and watermelons are my fave, but honeydew is lovely too – to be had at the farmers market, so don’t be too annoyed with me for being so lazy about getting this post up.I was inspired to make melon soup…

Braised Beef Short Ribs: Braise Once, Eat Twice or More

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 16, 2014 at 3:54pm

Aaaand just like that, it’s braising season. Good, given I’ve been braising all summer long anyhow. I’m a big fan of batch cooking – cooking enough food to last a few meals – and there’s no better way to batch cook than to braise, no matter the season. Whether you cook low-and-slow in your oven…

Blueberry Kuchen: Round III (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 4, 2014 at 4:50pm

Oh blueberry kuchen, what a transformation we’ve had together. I first introduced my friend Susie Shubert’s summertime dessert back in 2010, when I shared the Kingfield Market Berry Bake Off-winning recipe with TC Taste/Minnesota Monthly Magazine readers…about one month before I quit eating gluten. The next summer, I made a gluten-free version, using almond flour…

Salted Honey Caramel Sauce (Paleo, AIP, Dairy-free)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 17, 2014 at 1:58pm

I’ve been cooking all morning, making dinner for my mom, sister Stacey, her son Cooper, and my son Nathan – the last I’ll make for him before we take off for college on Tuesday. Sigh.I’m keeping the menu really simple since I obviously don’t want to spend time in the kitchen once everyone arrives. Crudite…
