Sopes

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 24, 2012 at 10:33am

It’s a little bit ridiculous that I haven’t posted about sopes before – I make and devour them several times a week. In fact, I’m a maniacal cornmeal cake fan in general. Chef Thomas Boemer had an insane version on Corner Table’s menu a couple of weeks ago, with a bit of lard kneaded in,…

Ham Fritters

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 28, 2012 at 6:15am

I made the original saltcod version of these fritters via Andrew Zimmern’s Kitchen Adventures and watched my friends and family devour them. I love fritters! I love anything fried! So I created two versions – both glutenful and gluten-free – and was delighted when taste testers couldn’t tell the difference between the two. If fritters…

Rice Flour-Coconut Milk Pancakes

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 11, 2012 at 7:19pm

I saw this recipe this week for Sri Lankan rice flour-coconut milk pancakes. With yeast! I couldn’t wait to make them. They are ridiculously delicious, no surprise. Is anything made with coconut milk not amazing? The stuff blows my mind and palate, over and over and over again. Love. Make sure to try the onion…

Red Cabbage & Squash Gratin

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 5, 2012 at 8:27am

I made this colorful dish for Christmas dinner and am just getting around to sharing it with you now. I’d like to say that I sat down and thought about everyone’s favorite vegetables and what would be pretty with the rest of the meal but honestly…I got rushed, and behind, and realized awfully late that…

Golden Coin Chicken-n-Shrimp Skewers with Peanut Sauce

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Feb 19, 2012 at 8:40am

Tender chicken and shrimp wrapped around sugar cane, grilled, then topped with spicy peanut sauce. Wrap in lettuce leaves and devour, preferably less maniacally than I did, I could not get enough of these.

Ginger Fried Rice

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jan 24, 2012 at 12:08pm

OK yes, I realize that I’m posting yet another fried egg dish, but this one is just too good to not share. I had actually forgotten about it, which is rather amazing given how many times I’ve made the dish since Mark Bittman first wrote about it in the New York Times two years ago….

Celery Root Latkes

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jan 18, 2012 at 7:15am

Given that everything is better fried – everything – it will come as no surpirse that root vegetables make utterly dreamy latkes. I like celery root in particular for its slightly sweet flavor. These latkes are delicious as is, fresh out of the fat with a dab of sour cream, but my favorite way to…

Fun to make for a crowd – Super Bowl Sunday! – and utterly salty crispy addictive. Recipe for Trinidad Salt Cod Fritters at Andrew Zimmern’s Kitchen Adventures/Food & Wine Magazine.

Braised White Beans

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jan 10, 2012 at 1:11pm

These may look like ordinary white beans but they’re actually the cool-girl beans in town, swooned over on Twitter, gossiped about on Facebook, photographed and copied and seriously in demand. I’d love to take credit for the fabulous recipe but no, these are via Chef Adam Vickerman of Cafe Levain, who now has the lady…

Popovers

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Dec 21, 2011 at 2:03pm

It actually hurt me a little bit to bake a pan of popovers for the photo. I don’t miss many things since giving up gluten – mostly good beer, honestly – but oh, popovers! Truly the world’s most perfect butter delivery vehicle, soft and eggy, steamy and crusty, marvelously ragged with melted-butter-pooling crevices. In college,…
