Braised Pork Shoulder with Chiles & Cinnamon

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 28, 2011 at 9:54am

In my excitement to braise something, anything over the past freezing weekend, I got a little carried away and bought an 8-pound boneless pork shoulder… …for four people, one of whom (Nathan) is hardly ever home and one of whom (my mom) has barely an appetite. But guess what? It’s almost gone! I cut the…

Every Sunday, Nathan and I eat our way through Kingfield Farmers’ Market. If you follow me on Twitter, then you know that one of our faves is Foxy Falafel. Erica Strait and her crew crank out the best falafel I’ve ever had. Made from sprouted chickpeas, perfectly crisp and fresh, the falafel is nestled atop…

Braised Moroccan Chicken with Saffron Rice

It is so ridiculously easy and delicious to braise a whole chicken that I do it almost every week, just to have on hand for last-minute meals. I’ve posted my recipe for chicken braised in coconut milk before, but not some of the other variations I play around with, so hopefully this post will round…

Chicken Piccata with Radish Ramp & Pea Shoot Salad

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 13, 2011 at 12:40pm

We all need to jazz up a chicken breast from time-to-time and this quick recipe, inspired by a Naomi Pomeroy recipe in the Wall Street Journal, does so nicely. I’m a big fan of crispy, buttery chicken skin, so I’ll often ask the butcher to take several breasts off the bone while I stroll around…

Are you craving spring? I am. In fact, if you follow me on Twitter you’re probably ready to personally arrange for warm weather just to shut me up. I’m trying to be patient, I really am. You know what helps? A ridiculous amount of pork, via the stunning charcuterie that Chef Mike Phillips is creating…

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 10, 2011 at 1:19pm

Make the Chicken with Taklia (Coriander Seeds & Garlic Toasted in Butter) and Sauteed Spinach (posted below) for dinner, then have poached eggs for breakfast the next day. That’s pretty much the routine in this house. In fact, I saved the chicken pan drippings and used them to saute the cabbage and spinach in this…

Chicken with Taklia (Coriander Seeds & Garlic Toasted in Butter) and Sauteed Spinach

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 9, 2011 at 10:51am

Thanks to Daniel Klein’s Chilled Carrot Soup with Coriander Yogurt & Daylilies recipe, which I posted this week at Dara & Co./Minnesota Monthly Magazine, I am obsessed with toasted coriander seeds. The fragrance off the hot skillet is at once fresh and warm, totally sexy, everything I want now that spring is finally showing its…

Roast Chicken Sandwich with Pickled Marmalade

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 29, 2011 at 2:43pm

I am so starved for spring color that freshly washed cars look like candy to me. I said the other day, “Oh my gosh, that red car looks absolutely delicious.” My teen son looked at me and asked, “Why do you live in Minnesota?” It’s a fair question, given my oft-bemoaned sensory deprivation, and given…

Beef Brisket Tacos

I took this picture after…6 pm!  That is so outstanding I can barely contain myself.  It’s been a long, dark winter in Minnesota and while it’s still cold as hell, with a thick blanket of dirty snow covering everything (the color of despair as my Twitter friend @ChefSpencerGray called it, perfect), there is light.  Lalalight!…
