Turkish Zucchini Pancakes…Again!

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 10, 2013 at 9:49pm

I first posted this recipe three years ago, but given my recent pancake obsession, I decided it was time for them to return. Since my post, I’ve made them gluten-free with King Arthur gluten-free all-purpose flour and grain-free with chickpea flour. Both fantastic! Zucchini bread is a family favorite, but if you’re looking for a…

White Bean Salad with Tomato & Avocado aka Power Outage Pantry Salad

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 25, 2013 at 4:40pm

Is your power back on? Hooey what a series of storms. It always breaks my heart to see grand old trees downed, especially if their falling damages homes and cars. I hope that you escaped damage and if not, that you’re back on track soon. After losing power, I’m thinking ahead to the next outage….

Browned Butter: Savory or Sweet

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 12, 2013 at 9:48am

Browned butter (beurre noisette), is having its moment in the spotlight for good reason. Not that butter isn’t beautiful on its own, but a few minutes of carefully applied heat transforms its subtle sweet saltiness to nutty brown cheesiness, creating a rather magical sauce in the process. If you’ve ever bathed your palate in the…

Quinoa Cakes topped with…a Poached Egg. But of Course.

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 26, 2013 at 6:46pm

Here’s a thing: my husband and I are divorcing. It’s exactly as sad and stressful as one might imagine, so I’ve been taking extra steps to take really good care of myself. I already know that eating corn and rice makes be feel pretty lousy – not as lousy as eating gluten – but lethargic…

Chile-Tomato "Harissa"

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 6, 2013 at 3:01pm

Is there anything more fun than conjuring something delicious from nothing but your imagination and leftovers? Don’t answer that, but instead consider the primal satisfaction that comes from being both resourceful and frugal. I may have read a few too many Laura Ingalls Wilder stories as a young girl, but preparing meals from a perfect…

Fresh Mozzarella & Basil Frittata

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 19, 2012 at 9:58am

Fresh mozzarella with tomatoes is everywhere, even in the dead of a Minnesota winter, when it shouldn’t be. We’ve all seen slabs of rubbery cheese layered with slabs of grainy-pale tomato objects and wondered what on earth happened to this pretty salad. Certainly in the summer, when tomatoes are ripe, the two can be lovely…

Green Goddess Potato Salad

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 5, 2012 at 11:21am

Here’s a potato salad to make all season long, with whatever fresh herbs you have on hand. The creamy, tangy dressing requires nothing more than a quick whir in the blender and ta da! – a bowlful of bright green deliciousness that had me eating it straight from the bowl, goddess-style. Here’s also a potato…

Cauliflower Gratin

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 20, 2012 at 5:25pm

Perhaps it’s cliche that I read MFK Fisher’s The Gastronomical Me and wanted to immerse myself in the world of food, but that’s OK. Who wouldn’t want to do exactly that after reading that sexy, scrumptious book? My goodness that woman could write, my mouth waters (and my heart swoons) just thinking about it. There’s…

Fried Cheese with Almond Meal Crust (Gluten-Free)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 19, 2012 at 7:03pm

So I had fried cheese for both breakfast and dinner today. I am ridiculously obsessed with the stuff right now, to such a degree that I kind of embarrassed myself a couple of weeks ago raving about the gluten-free fried cheese curds at Red Stag in NE Minneapolis to Ryan Petz of Fulton Beer. When…

Potato Galette

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 15, 2012 at 3:18pm

A potato galette is simply thin slices of potatoes, fat, and seasoning layered into a shallow pan and roasted until crusty and browned. It’s traditional to serve alongside a roast of some sort, and definitely do that, because you can imagine crusty, buttery potatoes do a fine job of soaking up meaty juices of almost…
