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…

Using a Pot of Beans Part IV: Curried Lentils

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Feb 9, 2011 at 2:24pm

Are you still with me? It’s been a lot of beans this last week, I know, but keep in mind that any of these dishes can be frozen for a future warm dinner. This version is sort of dal meets chana masala – two of my two favorite bean dishes. I’ve had the chana masala…

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Nov 1, 2010 at 11:45am

I first wrote about this recipe a few weeks ago when I described our trip to San Francisco. My friend Maud’s brother Arthur made a delicious kale salad for us, and I couldn’t wait to make it at home and post it for you. In the process of raving about it on Facebook, I found…

Cherry Tomato Gratin

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 19, 2010 at 11:10am

If you like tomatoes and bread – which of course you do – then you’ll love this simple summer gratin. Cherry tomatoes and bread are tossed with garlic, Parmesan cheese, fresh parsley, and olive oil, then baked until the bread is crusty and the tomatoes are tender and just starting to burst. I could sit…

Crustless Spinach & Leek Quiches

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 17, 2010 at 10:32am

I’m supposed to be preparing for a dinner party we’re hosting this evening, so this post is going to be short-n-sweet! Which is fine, since these quiches are short-n-sweet too, and really, what’s to say about quiche? Eggs + cheese = heaven. There you go. Oh wait, I do have one note of explanation: I…

End of Summer Cooking: Grilled Eggplant Parmesan

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 12, 2010 at 4:33pm

This post was supposed to be about the lovely-sounding spinach custard that I made the other day…except that it failed miserably. I had a feeling, as I put it in a 400-degree oven (as directed), that bad things were about to happen. Custard and high heat usually mean a weeping, watery mess… …and that’s what…

Late Summer Dinner: Fresh Corn Pudding

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 30, 2010 at 2:58pm

It’s traditional to serve corn pudding alongside a crusty roast or ham, and of course it’s delicious that way. But I like it best as the star of the meal, served like a souffle with simply sauteed vegetables. (Try diced zucchini, sauteed in a little butter with garlic, with halved cherry tomatoes and fresh thyme…

Grilled Corn on the Cob with Chipotle Butter

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 25, 2010 at 4:06pm

I include this recipe here today in honor of the Great Minnesota Get Together, aka the Minnesota State Fair, which begins tomorrow. The grilled corn at the State Fair is sick it’s so good. Don’t watch while they drench – drench! – it in melted butter and you’ll enjoy it completely. When I was a…

You might be looking for new, delicious ways to use zucchini right about now. How did I know? Crazy right, how I read your mind? I’m good that way. These savory pancakes are hardly new, but they are certainly delicious. Filled with fresh herbs and salty bits of feta cheese, the pancakes pop hot off…

Summer Appetizer: Smoky Chipotle Guacamole

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 18, 2010 at 3:12pm

If you’ve eaten at Barrio Tequila Bar lately (and if you haven’t, you should…), you’ll recognize this guacamole presentation, with sliced jalapeƱos and radishes. I copied it because I’m absolutely smitten with the extra crunch and heat of the raw vegetables – as if I needed yet another reason to love guacamole. Or anything at…
