Last-Minute Labor Day Ideas!

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 6, 2010 at 10:15am

Happy Labor Day! Are you stopping by for a little last-minute holiday cooking inspiration? I have to confess that this day rather snuck up on me too – denial that summer is ending, I suppose. If you’re running to the market today, wanting to pull something festive together for later this evening, here are some…

Pork Tenderloin with Fresh Apple Salsa

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 5, 2010 at 6:42pm

Apple season has arrived! And while I consider pork in season all year long, it’s hard to find a more classic September pairing than pork roast with apples. This pretty version, with a raw apple salsa spooned over grilled pork tenderloin, bridges summer-into-fall nicely. See if you can keep yourself from eating the salsa straight…

A Good Hash

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 5, 2010 at 6:09pm

I’m a bit ahead of the curve here, assuming that you have leftover roast of any sort in early September. (Reveals my fatalistic if-summer’s-over-then-it-must-be-winter attitude.) But just in case… I personally had a few lovely slices of leftover boneless, skin-on turkey breast, which I’d rubbed with herbs and olive oil and grilled until nicely crispy….

Grilled Steaks with Herb Butter

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 12, 2010 at 12:08pm

May I suggest adding a pat of herb butter to your grilled steaks? The butter melts over the hot beef, of course, pooling with the steak’s juices to create an obscenely addictive sauce. It’s a classic bistro presentation, alongside pommes frites, and is so delicious that you’ll soon be adding pats to everything. Grilled fish,…

Souvlaki: Greek Pork Skewers

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 26, 2010 at 8:54am

Greek food and I had a shaky start, which is hard to imagine given how much I love it now. My first exposure to a fully-loaded gyro – hours into my freshman year, University of Wisconsin-Madison, with my just-met roommate – completely freaked me out. So much garlic, with yogurt on meat (wha?), and juices…

Weekend Grilling: Pork Tenderloin Tacos

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 21, 2010 at 8:55am

It’s going to be 90 sultry degrees here in Minneapolis on Sunday. Ugh. I’m not going to complain (is “ugh” a complaint?), but I’m not quite prepared for that level of heat and humidity. Guess I’ll just have to grab a cold beverage and head out to the grill…tough, I know. If you’re looking for…

Whole Barbecued Chicken

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 20, 2010 at 6:32pm

I half ruined this whole barbecued chicken and it was still so provocatively delicious that John and I attacked it (and each other, get back!) like wolves. Snip, snap, gone. Wow, dudes, if you have not heeded my unpaid over-representation of the Weber poultry roaster (I have no relationship with Weber), heed it now. It…

No-Fail Pork Ribs and Tangy Coleslaw

No-fail pork ribs

These falling-off-the-bone ribs almost make themselves. Alongside crunchy slaw, they’ll make your Memorial Day barbecue! So, the countdown to Memorial Day continues… Last week, I suggested strawberry shortcakes for a post-barbecue dessert. This week, the barbecue’s main show: no-fail pork ribs for grill novices (and experts) alongside crunchy, tangy coleslaw. The ribs are a bit of a…

Korean-Style Grilled Beef

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 14, 2010 at 10:25am

Here’s a fast way to jazz up your weekend steaks. I’ve posted this recipe for Korean Bulgogi before, but it deserves another look on a sunny Friday. It finally stopped raining here which means improved moods and…grill time! Yes! This marinade is perfect for a top sirloin (although I had strip steaks in the freezer;…

Sunday Night Burger

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 11, 2010 at 6:32pm

Grillin’ and chilin’, a real warm-weather day. Puppy Louis spent all day outside, playing in the park and back yard, snoozing on the deck, and acquiring a fair number of burrs (luckily, they slide out of his fur pretty easily). We spent all day outside too, reading and…playing with Puppy Louis. I might even be…
