It’s no secret that Corner Table Restaurant is one of my favorite spots in town – I wouldn’t have chosen to spend my birthday dinner there several weeks ago if it weren’t. So when I received an invitation for a promotional cooking demonstration and dinner at Corner Table, for the Muir Glen Tomato Vine Dining…

Using a Pot of Beans Part III: Lentil Hummus

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Feb 7, 2011 at 7:42am

This is the same Creamy, Fluffy Hummus – The Way It’s Supposed To Be recipe I posted a few months ago, except substituting black lentils for the garbanzos. That’s the thing with hummus – you can make it with whatever bean you have on hand and it will always be lovely. As true as it…

Bagna Cauda

I’m a salty girl, always, but I think my cravings are even more intense in the winter. Lately I’ve been plucking little balls of fresh mozzarella cheese from their whey bath, sprinkling them with salt, and popping them in my mouth like cherries. Good Lord they’re good that way – who needs tomatoes and basil?…

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…

Fresh Cranberry Salsa

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Dec 19, 2010 at 8:35am

I posted this recipe a few weeks ago at Dara & Co./Minnesota Monthly Magazine. I thought it was worth another look in this week before Christmas. As delicious as cranberries are for Thanksgiving, I think they’re even more perfect – red! – on the Christmas table. Delicious with turkey, of course, but also pork or…

Homemade Applesauce (Paleo, AIP, Vegan)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 28, 2010 at 5:16pm

I hated applesauce as a kid. (I realize how many blog posts I begin by mentioning a food I hated as a kid. I do it to reassure you, and myself, that picky children often become enthusiastic cooks and eaters. So hang in there if you’re feeding the seemingly impossible.) I hated its grainy, watery…

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,…
