Tender Pork Meatballs in Marcella Hazan’s Tomato Butter Sauce (Paleo)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 15, 2015 at 5:41pm

Hi! How was your summer? Goodness it flew by, like they all do, and yet we are all surprised to see the first yellow leaves scattered on the ground. I love that about Minnesotans – we are bonded by our collective denial and climatic optimism. WINTER MIGHT NOT COME THIS YEAR. Um. I haven’t been posting here as…

The book is a snapshot of the Twin Cities food scene, incorporating recipes and full-color photographs from chefs, growers, and purveyors. Twin Cities Chef’s Table will be part of a series of beautiful Chef’s Table books that…

Tomato Sweet Corn Quiche

For the third summer in a row, I’ve had the pleasure of being invited to a Tomato Party. The party kicks off with the hostess’s jewel-toned tomato-basil water, spiked with a bit of vodka, glistening with a drizzle of olive oil. It is the very essence of summer’s end, a fragrant reminder to hurry up…

Chiles Rellenos (grain-free, gluten-free): Tomato Party, Part III

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 20, 2013 at 5:04pm

It sounds unlikely, but I swear it’s true: the residents of Grand Forks, North Dakota, are obsessed with Tex-Mex food. I know this because I came of age there, and I and my fellow starving high school friends spent the bulk of our disposable income on tacos, smothered burritos, chips and “sauce,” grinders (a future…

Tomato Gratin Stew: Tomato Party Part II and…What Am I?

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 15, 2013 at 10:23am

So Stephanie, what do you do? That question causes my throat to close. What on earth do I say? I’ve said food blogger a few times, just to watch eyes glaze over. Food writer, photographer, event organizer, recipe developer, and cooking instructor most often tumble out, in some combination, but that feels like a task…

Roasted Tomato Soup

Despite our first frost, there are still plenty of tomatoes kicking around! Make a double batch of this easy soup and freeze it for a mid-winter’s treat. Or eat it all hot from the pot, which is a good plan too. I make this soup all season long by roasting tomatoes as I pick them,…

Crab & Sweet Corn Chowder

Hello from my (ridiculously brief) summer vacation in East Hampton. The only reason I’m posting a recipe while on vacation is that the local produce out here is so astonishing that I’m inspired to cook here more than I am at home. As much as the area is known for spiffy homes, those homes are…

Tomato Tart Round III: This Time, Gluten-Free + A Tomato Party!

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 21, 2011 at 6:07am

I should have titled this post, How to Beat a Recipe to Death. Seriously. This is the third time I’ve posted a variation on it but hey, a winner is a winner, and this one is A Winner. It originated with the lovely blog 101 Cookbooks and I’ve just continued to play with it. The…

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:…
