The Prep Ends, Eating Begins!

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Dec 27, 2010 at 9:56am

To me, it’s not Christmas without my mom’s fabulous 1970s appetizer platter. I use it all the time, this time for fondue vegetables. The smooth, tangy cheese… …and rich beef tenderloin fondue were both amazing. Fried beef. Yes. But I think my very favorite were the crispy cauliflower fritters – ridiculously good. I used two…

Quick Coconut Curry with Halibut & Broccoli

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Dec 15, 2010 at 7:39am

I posted this recipe a few weeks ago at Dara & Co./Minnesota Monthly Magazine. I know it’s a crazy-busy time of year, which makes it nice to have a quick, nourishing recipe to turn to for a satisfying dinner. Plus: I don’t know about you, but spicy food tastes extra delicious when it’s zero degrees…

Hearty Chicken Chowder for a Blizzard!

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Dec 11, 2010 at 11:05am

Oooh, a Minnesota blizzard!  Despite a reputation for otherwise, blizzards don’t happen all that often ’round these parts, so it’s rather a big deal.  And fun!  At least if you’re inside, well-stocked, with a stack of good movies or books. I happened to have chicken, chicken stock, and a few vegetables in the fridge, so…

Poached Eggs Over Celery Root Latkes

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Nov 27, 2010 at 9:50am

Back at you with more eggs… John and I love a good brunch, especially with a glass of champagne. Perhaps it should be, but the Saturday after a holiday is no exception. Remember Poached Eggs over Potato-Green Pepper Pancakes from this summer? Well, this recipe is a lower carbohydrate – but every bit as delicious…

Using Creme Fraiche Part IV: Celery Root & Leek Soup

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Nov 4, 2010 at 8:00pm

You might have passed right by celery root (also known as celeriac) at the store, thinking it looked anything but edible.  I admit, it freaked me out the first time I shopped for it, but I trusted the description I’d read (pleasantly mild celery taste, texture similar to a potato, overall effect of savory, delicious…

Abigail and Arthur’s Kale Salad

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Nov 1, 2010 at 11:45am

I first wrote about this recipe a few weeks ago when I described our trip to San Francisco. My friend Maud’s brother Arthur made a delicious kale salad for us, and I couldn’t wait to make it at home and post it for you. In the process of raving about it on Facebook, I found…

Using Creme Fraiche Part III: Amanda Hesser’s Lemon Chicken (with Walnut Green Beans)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 28, 2010 at 12:48pm

OK, assuming that you used about 1/2 cup total of creme fraiche for Part I: Softly Scrambled Eggs and Part II: Sauteed Apple with Honey, you should be all set to finish off the container with this dish. And if not – who cares? This chicken is so obscenely delicious that it would totally be…

Oven Roasted Pork Ribs with Root Vegetables

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 24, 2010 at 6:23am

I’m making these today at the Minneapolis Farmers Market – come out and visit! The demonstration is at 10:30 a.m., rain or shine. In fact, because it will be raining, we’ll be next to Blue Gentian Farm’s stall, under red roof #3. Handy, since I’ll be preparing a big ol’ rack of Blue Gentian Farm…

Sweet Potato Fries with Garlic & Crispy Fried Sage (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 21, 2010 at 7:49am

I posted this recipe a few weeks ago at Dara & Co./Minnesota Monthly Magazine. It’s hard to say much more about Sweet Potato Fries than: They are easy. They are delicious. I spotted sweet potatoes at the farmers market the other day and immediately imagined sweet potato “fries,” roasted in the oven until tender and…

Grilled Shrimp Tostadas with Spicy Slaw

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 12, 2010 at 3:45pm

I posted this recipe a few weeks ago at Dara & Co./Minnesota Monthly Magazine. It may be mid-October, but it’s still warm enough to grill & chill outside. Strange, but we’ll take it, so go for the grill – yes! Warm sun, cool breezes, my favorite time of year has arrived! Open windows, evening walks,…
