Baked Garlic with Rosemary & Blue Cheese

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jan 15, 2013 at 1:31pm

I’ll confess, I meant to get this recipe to you before New Year’s Eve. But in the crush of the holidays, and illness, it did not happen and…well, Happy New Year? The good news is that New Year’s Eve is not the only winter night to invite friends for dinner, and this easy appetizer is…

Chickpea Soup

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Dec 4, 2012 at 12:07pm

Braise a pot of beans one day, eat well for the next several. It’s the laziest, most delicious way to fill a week with food that I can imagine. Day 1 eat a bowlful of beans, on their own or alongside a roast or spooned over rice. Day 2 fry some beans until crispy and…

Doug Flicker’s Collard Greens from Come In, We’re Closed

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 16, 2012 at 12:24pm

I just returned last night from a weekend of eating my way through New York. While we had a killer time eating very special things, I thought on several occasions…I eat better than this in Minneapolis. What?! But yes! I’ve been thinking this on the last few trips I’ve taken, especially pork dishes, which I…

Roasted Tomato Soup

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 25, 2012 at 4:54pm

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,…

Fermented Cucumber Pickles (Paleo, AIP) and Pickling the Market

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 31, 2012 at 2:06pm

If you’re a fan of deli-style pickles, then you’re a fan of salt-brine fermented pickles. I am too, I am too! In fact, I’ll never forget the first time I had fat slices of salty fermented pickles at Upstairs Downstairs Deli in Madison, Wisconsin – bright green and uber-garlicky, I couldn’t stop eating them. (What…

Chimichurri: Part II

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 3, 2012 at 7:40pm

I posted a chimichurri recipe here once before, back in February of 2011, upon returning from a trip to Costa Rica. I fell into a deep craving while on that trip, eating the local twist on this classic Argentian sauce on everything that I touched. While the recipe that I posted is bright and snappy,…

Green Goddess Potato Salad

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 5, 2012 at 11:21am

Here’s a potato salad to make all season long, with whatever fresh herbs you have on hand. The creamy, tangy dressing requires nothing more than a quick whir in the blender and ta da! – a bowlful of bright green deliciousness that had me eating it straight from the bowl, goddess-style. Here’s also a potato…

Cauliflower Gratin

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 20, 2012 at 5:25pm

Perhaps it’s cliche that I read MFK Fisher’s The Gastronomical Me and wanted to immerse myself in the world of food, but that’s OK. Who wouldn’t want to do exactly that after reading that sexy, scrumptious book? My goodness that woman could write, my mouth waters (and my heart swoons) just thinking about it. There’s…

This salad just screams “Ladies!” to me. Right? Although my husband devoured it, so certainly plenty of gents will happily down lobster and asparagus atop buttery toast as well.
