Oven Roasted Pork Ribs with Root Vegetables

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 24, 2010 at 6:23am

I’m making these today at the Minneapolis Farmers Market – come out and visit! The demonstration is at 10:30 a.m., rain or shine. In fact, because it will be raining, we’ll be next to Blue Gentian Farm’s stall, under red roof #3. Handy, since I’ll be preparing a big ol’ rack of Blue Gentian Farm…

Fish Soup with Tomatoes

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 13, 2010 at 7:29am

Where do you buy fish? A tricky thing, in Minnesota, at least to find consistently fresh choices – I’ve bought nice fillets and some real stinkers from every major outlet in the Twin Cities. If you’re willing to shop online, I can say that I’ve been extremely pleased with the sustainably caught king salmon and…

Coconut Pancakes with Strawberries

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 2, 2010 at 9:39am

Here’s a…thing. Due to health problems I’d been experiencing for the last couple of years (puffy eyes/hands, fatigue, joint pain), and given that I’m otherwise totally healthy (blood pressure and cholesterol-wise), I started experimenting with eliminating various foods from my diet. I started with nuts, then eggs, then dairy. I felt exactly the same. And…

Fresh Tomato Sauce to Eat on Everything

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 25, 2010 at 8:57am

I posted this recipe a few weeks ago at Dara & Co./Minnesota Monthly.  It’s no longer hot & humid in Minnesota – in fact, we turned on the heat this morning, brrr! – but there are still piles of fat, ripe tomatoes around, just perfect for making this addictive sauce. Thanks to my seasonal pessimism,…

Roasted Cauliflower with Pancetta & Garlic (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 22, 2010 at 5:30pm

It is so dark today (in Minnesota), I’m lucky I was able to take a recognizable photo. Flash flood warnings abound, as apparently we’re about to be deluged with days of cold, fall rain. Good times. To cheer myself up, I just add pork, to just about anything, and really, I feel better. I made…

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…

Ratatouille with a Poached Egg

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 3, 2010 at 7:35pm

With eggplants of every size and shape at the markets, as well as more than a few chilly evenings under our belts, I’ve been dreaming of a hearty, chunky ratatouille. But like most adults and children alike, I’ve also wanted to try the Ratatouille movie version of ratatouille, with paper thin slices of eggplant, peppers,…

Cold Cucumber Soup (Paleo, AIP, Vegan)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 27, 2010 at 9:20am

Nathan and I enjoyed the most delicious cold cucumber soup while in East Hampton.  It was dairy-free, yet smooth and creamy in texture, a bit frothy even, tasting of little more than pleasantly salty cucumbers and dill.  We couldn’t stop talking about it and I promised that I’d attempt a version at home. This soup…

Eggplant Caviar

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 8, 2010 at 1:28pm

My family is more than a little obsessed with the eggplant spread – or melitzanosalata – at It’s Greek to Me. The creamy eggplant is perfectly balanced with lemon, garlic, fresh herbs, and salt. Nathan and I could sit down with just that, and a mountain of pillowy, hot-off-the-griddle pita bread, and stuff ourselves like…

One of my Favorite Summer Dishes: Saute of Tomatoes and Okra with Bacon

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 21, 2010 at 9:51am

Since I’m about as northern as they come (I’ve spent my whole life in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and North Dakota), I never knew how much I like fresh okra.  But oh do I like it, it’s become one of my very favorite vegetables, especially in this simple, pretty saute.  There’s nothing slimy about this dish –…
