Kimchi Fried Rice

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 31, 2017 at 9:24am

I first posted this dish before I embarked on the adventure of the autoimmune protocol (AIP), an elimination diet for healing and uncovering food sensitivities that eliminates most of the elements of this dish: eggs, nightshades (including chiles), seeds (sesame), soy (tamari), and grains (rice). I’m happy to report that I can occasionally enjoy all…

Thanksgiving 2016 Menu

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Nov 17, 2016 at 9:03pm

I taught my Paleo Thanksgiving class at Kitchen in the Market last Friday and wanted to share the recipes with you all. I LOVE Thanksgiving, every single part of it. Planning, shopping, cooking on my own ahead of time and then with the gang on the big day, setting the table, being with my family,…

Chicken Skewers with Chopped Cucumber, Arugula, & Olives (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 20, 2016 at 9:30am

Hello from Boulder, Colorado. I’ve just arrived and I’m staying for at least a month. It was a rather last minute decision that had been brewing for awhile, if that makes sense. For the last couple of years, I’d been pondering the fact that because Nathan is in college, and because my work is relatively…

Pressure Cooker (or Braised) Pork Carnitas and Roasted Cauliflower Rice (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jan 26, 2015 at 4:59pm

Happy Monday! As I chat with people about the obstacles of adopting a real food lifestyle, I’ve come to realize that one of the biggest is the fear of standing out and/or annoying people. Which is totally legitimate, I’ve had those same concerns. It’s comforting and useful to be a peacekeeper. But conformity has its…

Sweet & Tangy Broccoli Salad (Paleo, AIP-friendly)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 5, 2014 at 2:34pm

Tonight is National Night Out and given that Minneapolis often ranks number one in participation, you may very well be attending a neighborhood block party this evening. If so, I have just the salad for you, a real crowd pleaser that comes together quickly and stays crunchy and appealing on a buffet. You might recognize…

Roasted Cauliflower “Couscous” (AIP, Paleo)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 15, 2014 at 4:03pm

This side dish is a twist on the couscous salad that changed my life. For years, my go-to potluck contribution was a couscous salad, loaded with roasted vegetables, dried fruit, cheese, and nuts. It doesn’t wilt on a buffet and pairs well with barbecued meats and other salads. I made it for my own parties,…

Coleslaw with Caper-Anchovy Dressing (AIP, Paleo)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 24, 2014 at 1:21pm

Are you dreaming of a July 4th barbecue feast? If you are, I have a few ideas for you. Creamy coleslaw is some of the best picnic fare around, but a vinegary slaw can be a tart change of pace, improve while sitting on a buffet, and even add a bit of polish to a…

First up: congratulations to Elaine Harbaugh Heffner for winning last week’s The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook giveaway! Happy cooking to you, Elaine, I know that you’ll love it. You’ll of course recognize these little tasties as a twist on Devil’s on Horseback (dates stuffed with blue cheese, wrapped in bacon; they’re marvelous). I started playing around…

Spiced Fresh Cranberry Relish Mold

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Nov 26, 2013 at 1:12pm

Poor cranberries. No one really ever eats them, despite tradition, even when made from scratch. I think it’s because Americans are unaccustomed to the delights of chutney-eque condiments. Which is a shame, given the palate-cleansing powers of a tangy, acidic punch on a plate of buttery, rich foods.This recipe is as old school as I…

Crispy Crushed Potatoes with Preserved Lemon

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Nov 5, 2013 at 11:29am

Apparently potatoes are the most-consumed vegetable in the US, thanks to fast food French fries. I’d put fries in my top five most favorite foods, but that statistic still depresses the starch out of me. As someone who spent my teen years eating more than my fair share of McDonald’s fries, I’m glad to say…
