Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Nov 11, 2013 at 4:26pm

When my sister Stacey and I were little girls in Lakefield, Minnesota, Friday nights were pretty special. Our beautiful mom would get dressed up, with glamorous make-up, hair, and perfume, and she and our dad would head out for a supper club dinner. The next morning they would tell us stories about how “Splash” the…

Homemade Chicken Broth (Bone Broth, Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Nov 7, 2013 at 6:21pm

Here, in this jar, is the pure gold otherwise known as chicken broth. Utterly delicious yes, but equally as important – soothing. Healing. Not just to my soul, but to my sometimes bitchy digestive system. When I accidentally eat gluten, or hit a non-gluten grain too hard, I had might as well pull out my…

Fall Steak Salad with Sweet Potatoes, Avocado & Maple Vinaigrette

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 8, 2013 at 2:21pm

As a kid, I thought salad was the food women ate to punish themselves into dropping a few pounds. I used to eat French fries with a knife and fork to pretend I was eating salad, just to feel like a grown-up. I clearly had a lot to learn, including the fact that a well-made…

Smoky Sausage Soup with Kale and Chickpeas

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 1, 2013 at 1:57pm

I realize, typing this, that I’m hitting you with two soup/stew recipes in a row. Oops! Well, ’tis the season, right? The combination of cool nights and piles of gorgeous harvest apparently makes me want to stew everything in sight. (In fact, I sort of do that, in batches as I go, a way of…

The book is a snapshot of the Twin Cities food scene, incorporating recipes and full-color photographs from chefs, growers, and purveyors.

Dan-Dan Cucumber “Noodles” (gluten-free, grain-free)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 27, 2013 at 12:08pm

I was going to share this recipe next week, but given blistering temps and tropical humidity, today is the day, The Perfect Day, for Dan-Dan “noodles.” I spent yesterday and Sunday out at the Minnesota State Fair, talking about food (of course), sweating like I have never sweat before in my life, and both days…

Morel Burgers with Ramps

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 30, 2013 at 11:51am

Happy National Burger Day! In celebration, I present a grass-fed beef/pork combo, laced with ramps and topped with buttery morels and a quick red wine pan sauce. I would have topped it with a fried egg, but given there’s an egg in the mix, I thought that was a bit over-the-top. That said, you could…

Grilled Lamb Chops with Gremolata (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 3, 2013 at 6:40am

I know, I know, I should have posted this before Easter, but lamb with gremolata is lovely all spring (year) long, so make it this week instead! I had let gremolata – a relish of minced lemon zest, garlic, and parsley – slip out of my rotation but it’s back with a vengeance, thanks to…

Founded by Sue Zelickson in 1998, Kids Cafe is a nutrition and self-esteem program for high risk and homeless youth living in St. Louis Park. Under the leadership of “Chef Dan” Tobias-Kotyk, the cafe is humming…
