(Almost) Chicken Parmigiana

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jan 20, 2010 at 7:40pm

And an almost-post about it. I bit off a bit more than I could chew this afternoon and attempted a multi-step dinner when I knew that I had to be out out the door by 4:45 pm (basketball practice, church run). I usually keep Wednesday night dinners extremely simple (due to basketball practice, church run), but…

Boeuf Bourguignon (Beef Burgundy)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 12, 2009 at 1:15pm

Ah, turns out that winter has arrived in Minnesota more than a month early. Not good news for those of us who dislike living in cold, colorless darkness for half the year, sigh. But we make the best of it, hearty souls and all that, blah, blah, blah. Please bear with me while I use…

So Long Montana, Hello Puppy Louis

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 30, 2009 at 8:02am

Good-bye summer! It was a chilly 45 degrees at 3 o’clock this morning, autumn is definitely in the air. If you’re wondering why I know the temp at 3 a.m., it’s not because I was out partying. It’s because we got…a new puppy! Puppy Louis, a mini goldendoodle (will be 45 lbs. full grown), and…

Julie & Julia…

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 8, 2009 at 6:16pm

…the movie. I was so excited to see it and let me say, I was not disappointed. Love, love, loved it. Was actually kind of weepy throughout, particularly during the Julia & Paul Child scenes. The food, the romance, the finding one’s passion, even the blogging and funnily enough, the tallness (Julia was 6’2″, I’m…

Marinades

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 1, 2009 at 10:52am

                          Remember when everyone thought marinades tenderized meat?  Ah well, they don’t (just like browning meat doesn’t “seal in the juices” – but I digress…).  Marinades do however add tons of flavor – to meat and vegetables – and are therefore my current…

Grillin’, Chillin’ Part I

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 23, 2009 at 8:42am

From www.cookinglight.com I hope you’re relaxing right about now, enjoying the start of a long Memorial Day weekend.  It’s a weekend for griling, of course – I’m planning a little grilled tasty every day. First up, tonight, skewers of salmon and shrimp, marinated first in something citrus-y/garlicky, to serve alongside pasta (for the kids) and…

Burgers, Burgers Everywhere

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 8, 2009 at 7:15am

You can tell we’re heading into summer by the number of burger posts around the web. The goods (don’t worry, not all of them are decadent!)… President Obama and Vice President Biden stopped for lunch at Ray’s Hell Burger in DC this week. Check out this fun blogpost reviewing the place – which sounds fantastic…

Grill Baby Grill

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 1, 2009 at 1:32pm

Even if you took a break this winter, I’ll bet you’re grilling again now – it’s warm enough for just about everyone to fire ‘er up. Although eating an abundance of grilled (charred) food is sadly not a good idea, I’m not going to sweat one or two grilled meals per week. It’s just so…

The Spice of Life

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Feb 11, 2009 at 5:13pm

I hit a monster pothole at high speed this morning and after I gratefully realized that I had escaped a flat, I started chuckling. I’m now figuratively and (almost) literally stuck in a February rut – how perfect. Man, it is time to switch things up a bit, bust out of the house, this cozy…
