Chicken Braised in Coconut Milk

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Feb 27, 2011 at 5:42pm

This recipe is a total cheat. It’s the same base as the Beef Braised in Coconut Milk I posted awhile back, with a whole chicken in the pot instead of a beef roast. I’ve been meaning to do this for ages – even last week I picked up a chicken and coconut milk. The store…

Swedish Meatballs (Gluten-free)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Dec 29, 2010 at 2:21pm

Swedish meatballs make a scrumptious main dish or festive party appetizer – your call. Tender, fragrant with allspice and nutmeg, and bathed in a lightly creamy sauce, everyone goes wild for them. Only you need to know that they’re not complicated to make, and as a bonus, they’re pretty cheap eats, too. If you serve…

The Prep Ends, Eating Begins!

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Dec 27, 2010 at 9:56am

To me, it’s not Christmas without my mom’s fabulous 1970s appetizer platter. I use it all the time, this time for fondue vegetables. The smooth, tangy cheese… …and rich beef tenderloin fondue were both amazing. Fried beef. Yes. But I think my very favorite were the crispy cauliflower fritters – ridiculously good. I used two…

Hearty Chicken Chowder for a Blizzard!

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Dec 11, 2010 at 11:05am

Oooh, a Minnesota blizzard!  Despite a reputation for otherwise, blizzards don’t happen all that often ’round these parts, so it’s rather a big deal.  And fun!  At least if you’re inside, well-stocked, with a stack of good movies or books. I happened to have chicken, chicken stock, and a few vegetables in the fridge, so…

Spicy Pork Soup with Kale

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Nov 29, 2010 at 8:55am

I posted this recipe a few weeks ago at Dara & Co./Minnesota Monthly Magazine. It is all soup, all the time in this house right now! I made both beef and chicken versions over the weekend, might as well add pork too and fill up my freezer. It is so nice to find a container…

Beef Braised in Coconut Milk

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Nov 11, 2010 at 8:04am

I’ve always been a coconut fiend, but I am having a particular moment with coconut milk this fall. I’m pretty much obsessed with it. Some will caution against coconut milk’s saturated fat content, but worry not – the short- and medium-chain fatty acids in coconut milk are great for you. And oh my goodness the…

Using Creme Fraiche Part III: Amanda Hesser’s Lemon Chicken (with Walnut Green Beans)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 28, 2010 at 12:48pm

OK, assuming that you used about 1/2 cup total of creme fraiche for Part I: Softly Scrambled Eggs and Part II: Sauteed Apple with Honey, you should be all set to finish off the container with this dish. And if not – who cares? This chicken is so obscenely delicious that it would totally be…
