Coconut Pork Lettuce Wraps (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 27, 2015 at 1:26pm

Let’s talk babies! Even though my son is 19 years old now, and 6’5″ tall,  he’s still a baby in my mind. Blame Mother’s Day and the pregnancy of my friend Joy Summers, who recently gave birth to her perfect rosebud of a daughter, Baby CC. You guys, I haven’t held a newborn baby in…

Ginger Scallion Beef Stir-Fry (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 5, 2015 at 11:55am

Do you make the mistake of cooking alone ALL THE TIME? I mean, if cooking alone is your meditation and therapy, then by all means om away. But if you feel a bit sizzly and pouty about solo chopping, then it’s time to enlist a sous chef or two. Food is supposed to be fun…

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…

Squash, Beet & Apple Salad

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jan 22, 2015 at 12:43pm

Have I ever shared with you my purpose? That’s a rhetorical question because I know that I haven’t. For someone who puts a LOT of my life out into the ether – at least my food life – I’ve held much closer my dreams and plans for the future. It’s icky scary to put out…

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…

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…

Brussels Sprouts Gratin

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 22, 2013 at 7:38pm

I’m always trying to find things to douse in Cedar Summit cream, because let’s face it, I’m obsessed with the gloriously grass-fed stuff. Given a giant bag of darling little baby Brussels from the farmers market, and a hankering for my fave cauliflower gratin, I present the easiest, coziest Brussels dish in the world. I…
