On the Lighter Side

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Dec 27, 2010 at 12:01pm

I am stuffed to the max from rich holiday foods. Even though I was successful in avoiding gluten and grains, the salt really catches up to me. Puff city. And after a week of heavier foods, salads, fish, and brothy soups just sound so right to me. While these recipes aren’t new, I thought you…

Abigail and Arthur’s Kale Salad

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Nov 1, 2010 at 11:45am

I first wrote about this recipe a few weeks ago when I described our trip to San Francisco. My friend Maud’s brother Arthur made a delicious kale salad for us, and I couldn’t wait to make it at home and post it for you. In the process of raving about it on Facebook, I found…

Couscous with Vegetables, Olives, & Raisins

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 4, 2010 at 3:03pm

Behold the world’s most perfect side dish.  I’m not talking about the photo, which is meh (sorry, I was rushing this out to our National Night Out block party), but the dish itself, which is delicious and flexible and adaptable and easy and do-ahead. No lie. Serve it warm or serve it at room temperature. …

Tomato Salad with Burrata & Croutons

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 28, 2010 at 6:16pm

I know, I know.  Another tomato salad.  But bear with me for a minute, because of one special ingredient…burrata cheese.  It’s fresh mozzarella, but with a creamier, tangier twist.  I bought it at Whole Foods, in the cheese section, and haven’t looked back.  Burrata is completely incredible with garden fresh tomatoes, even more so than…

Ooh! Aah!

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 5, 2010 at 3:59pm

I cooked my brains out this weekend and loved every minute of it. See Saturday’s results – icy cold gazpacho, as well as poached eggs over potato pancakes – below. Both are new favorites, and why not? Crunchy, creamy, salty. Pretty much everything I crave. So where, you might wonder, are the pics of Sunday’s pork…

Salad Lyonnaise: Salad with Poached Egg and Bacon

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 20, 2010 at 5:07pm

I’ll keep this simple.  I made this version of Salad Lyonnaise for dinner tonight, for John, for Father’s Day, and it was sublime.  If you want to go to the recipe after the video, click on the “article” link.  If you take nothing else away from this demonstration, let it be how incredibly easy it…

Farmer’s Market Potato Salad

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 8, 2010 at 1:18pm

This salad – Potato Salad with Morels, Asparagus & Basil Vinaigrette – hails from the fantastic blog, Gluten-Free Girl and The Chef. Potatoes with morels, a killer combination, right? (Anything with morels…) I noticed right away that the recipe is wonderfully adaptable to whatever is in season, so when I spotted the first batch of…

Grilled Salmon with Avocado, Egg, Greens, & Mustard Vinaigrette

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 28, 2010 at 7:07pm

As I’ve complained before, it’s hard to find good salmon in Minnesota. I know, we’re in the middle of the country, about as far from any ocean as you can get in North America. It’s an unimportant problem. My not-terribly-local solution is that I buy wild salmon filets online from VitalChoice, the king salmon to…

Mache Salad with Hazelnuts, Dried Cherries, & Goat Cheese. Or Not.

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 8, 2010 at 3:46pm

Or Arugula Salad with Walnuts, Apples, & Cheddar. Or Frisee Salad with Almonds, Pears, & Gorgonzola. You see where I’m going. The recipe below can be altered, riffed on, adjusted endlessly. Use what’s in season, or your favorite combination, or whatever sounds perfect with your entree. All that matters is that you end up with…

Egg Salad – Yes, Egg Salad (With Lemon, Anchovies, & Crostini)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 29, 2010 at 5:59pm

I’ll admit, this is a bit similar to the post below (grilled cheese with baby artichokes), as in, “How to Make a Meal from a Baguette,” but hey, a baguette makes a lovely meal, as do artichokes and eggs, so stay with me. Just like in Caesar salad, the anchovy adds a punch of salty-savory,…
