Thai Hot-n-Sour Coconut-Chicken Soup and Big News!

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 5, 2011 at 9:44am

I have some pretty exciting news… I’m working with my friend Andrew Zimmern on his new endeavor for foodandwine.com, Andrew Zimmern’s Kitchen Adventures. If you only know Andrew from his Travel Channel series Bizarre Foods, you might not realize that Andrew is an incredible chef, home cook, and entertainer. His recipes are not only approachable…

Chicken Soup with Kale, Garlic & Sweet Potatoes (Paleo, AIP-Friendly)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 28, 2011 at 12:55pm

My mom is recovering from major surgery here at our home. She spent the first couple of weeks in a hospital and rehab facility, where the food was…truly awful. I brought her little farmer’s market treats like sliced tomatoes and strawberries, to remind her that not all food comes from boxes and cans, but man,…

Gazpacho

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 13, 2011 at 3:00pm

How do you like your gazpacho? Smooth or chunky? Spicy or sweet? I’m such a gazpacho lover that I like it any way, honestly, and mix it up every time that I make it, depending on my mood and what I have on hand. This version is a combination of elements from two friends’ recipes:…

Garlic Soup with a Fried Egg

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 13, 2011 at 7:41pm

Think of this soup as comfort food with a kick. The garlicky broth is mellow and sweet, ready and waiting to be made sublime with a fried egg (because a fried egg makes everything sublime…right). I added warmed sausage, white beans, and arugula because that’s what I had in the fridge (see recipe below). Simmer…

Coconut Curry Soup with Shrimp & Vegetables

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 17, 2011 at 9:17am

I get so many nice comments about the Quick Coconut Curry with Halibut & Broccoli recipe that I posted last fall that I thought I’d share a soup version of it that I make when the weather turns warmer. I use shrimp instead of halibut so that I can use the shells to make a…

If you’ve been missing the locally produced online documentary series The Perennial Plate, don’t fret: It’s online! Which is good, because once you start watching, you won’t be able to stop. The series—hosted by chef/activist Daniel Klein and filmed by cameraman/editor Mirra Fine—just wrapped its first year of weekly episodes documenting “socially responsible and adventurous…

Tortilla Soup

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 7, 2011 at 8:38am

Spring may be right around the corner, but I’m freezing right now. Brrr! I keep going out at night without stockings on, dying to wear something other than boots, hoping that because it’s now March, 20 degrees will feel more like 50 degrees. Not that 50 degrees is warm enough to go stockingless either, but…

Chicken Braised in Coconut Milk

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Feb 27, 2011 at 5:42pm

This recipe is a total cheat. It’s the same base as the Beef Braised in Coconut Milk I posted awhile back, with a whole chicken in the pot instead of a beef roast. I’ve been meaning to do this for ages – even last week I picked up a chicken and coconut milk. The store…

Vegetable Soup with Wild Rice, Ham & Cream

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Feb 20, 2011 at 6:50pm

When it snows, I make soup. And complain. And take ridiculously long baths. And pretend like I’m still on vacation. John and I were in Costa Rica last week and it was…heavenly. Too heavenly. I have been in a massive funk ever since we returned. The lovely view out of our home bedroom window that…

Using a Pot of Beans Part II: Almost-Instant Vegetable Bean Soup

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Feb 5, 2011 at 10:38am

This is a variation on a recipe from Jacques Pepin’s fabulous cookbook Fast Food My Way. If you like the idea of easy, fast, flavor-packed, healthy dinner ideas – yes, it delivers all of those things – I can’t recommend the book highly enough. As the name implies, this light-yet-filling soup is on the table…
