Cauliflower-Leek Soup with Crispy Shrimp (AIP, Paleo)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 11, 2016 at 6:45am

Around five years ago, I somehow fell into the company of a group of incredible women who were about to usher me through a massive life change. I didn’t know it, and they didn’t know it, but in retrospect I can see that the way we became fast friends was a rare and special thing,…

Green Gazpacho with Fried Shrimp: Tomato Party Part I

As pretty as green gazpacho is – a tangy twist on the usual – what I enjoy most about this dish is the fried shrimp WITH the gazpacho. With any gazpacho! I ordered the two together in a Palm Beach restaurant years ago – a smooth, creamy gazpacho with a side of hot, crispy little…

Grillin’, Chillin’ Part I

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 23, 2009 at 8:42am

From www.cookinglight.com I hope you’re relaxing right about now, enjoying the start of a long Memorial Day weekend.  It’s a weekend for griling, of course – I’m planning a little grilled tasty every day. First up, tonight, skewers of salmon and shrimp, marinated first in something citrus-y/garlicky, to serve alongside pasta (for the kids) and…
