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…

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…

Abigail and Arthur’s Kale Salad

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…
