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…

My son Nathan and I have been enjoying the privilege of volunteering at Perspectives Kids Cafe on Friday evenings. 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…

Muffuletta Sandwich: Make-Ahead Sandwich Perfection

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Feb 20, 2013 at 9:41am

Make-ahead sandwiches are a terrific way to feed a crowd and muffuletta sandwiches are the best way of all. First of all, the fresh-spicy giardiniera relish is ridiculously addictive – in fact, make a double batch, put half the vegetables in a jar to enjoy on as pickles, puree the other half to smear on…

Beef & Broccoli Stir-Fry

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Feb 5, 2013 at 12:50pm

After a snackful weekend loaded with the usual Super Bowl suspects – raise your hand if you too had con queso with tortilla chips – today I was ready for a pile of fresh, tender-crisp vegetables. This is my go-to stir-fry, flavorful, light, and adaptable in every which way. Feel free to substitute or add…

Basic Braised Pork Shoulder (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jan 14, 2013 at 3:26pm

Website Settings I’ve written before about the beauty of braising a pork shoulder one day, then crafting several meals from it as the week wears on. This version is more basic than the Pork Braised with Chiles & Cinnamon, which means you can eat it even more ways. Seasoned with onions, garlic, salt, and pepper,…

Pork Burgers

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 9, 2012 at 10:58am

Burger maniacs (including myself), I have a proposition for you (us)…pork burgers! Why do we all not eat pork burgers? I’m not suggesting that beef burgers are anything but delectable, but I have been pondering – given the borderline gastronomic insanity over bacon, pork belly, and charcuterie – why the heck isn’t a fabulously juicy,…

Fall Soups: Twin Cities Live

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 8, 2012 at 8:39pm

I had a blast chatting fall soups on Twin Cities Live this week! I specifically talked about Coconut Curry Sweet Corn Soup, but also brought along Pozole (pork braised with chiles and hominy) and a Chicken Vegetable Soup that’s pretty much the perfect post-Thanksgiving soup (obviously made with turkey not chicken – please forgive me…

Hello hotness, meet your nemesis: cold soba noodles. Chewy and naturally gluten-free, soba noodles make The Perfect summer pasta salad, robust enough to deliver the heat of chiles, the bite of fresh herbs, and whatever savory tasties you have on hand. (If you notice that I often suggest adding random treasures from your cooler to…
