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,…

Fresh Tomato Sauce to Eat on Everything

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 25, 2010 at 8:57am

I posted this recipe a few weeks ago at Dara & Co./Minnesota Monthly.  It’s no longer hot & humid in Minnesota – in fact, we turned on the heat this morning, brrr! – but there are still piles of fat, ripe tomatoes around, just perfect for making this addictive sauce. Thanks to my seasonal pessimism,…

Roasted Cauliflower with Pancetta & Garlic (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 22, 2010 at 5:30pm

It is so dark today (in Minnesota), I’m lucky I was able to take a recognizable photo. Flash flood warnings abound, as apparently we’re about to be deluged with days of cold, fall rain. Good times. To cheer myself up, I just add pork, to just about anything, and really, I feel better. I made…

Cherry Tomato Gratin

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 19, 2010 at 11:10am

If you like tomatoes and bread – which of course you do – then you’ll love this simple summer gratin. Cherry tomatoes and bread are tossed with garlic, Parmesan cheese, fresh parsley, and olive oil, then baked until the bread is crusty and the tomatoes are tender and just starting to burst. I could sit…

Crustless Spinach & Leek Quiches

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 17, 2010 at 10:32am

I’m supposed to be preparing for a dinner party we’re hosting this evening, so this post is going to be short-n-sweet! Which is fine, since these quiches are short-n-sweet too, and really, what’s to say about quiche? Eggs + cheese = heaven. There you go. Oh wait, I do have one note of explanation: I…

End of Summer Cooking: Grilled Eggplant Parmesan

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 12, 2010 at 4:33pm

This post was supposed to be about the lovely-sounding spinach custard that I made the other day…except that it failed miserably. I had a feeling, as I put it in a 400-degree oven (as directed), that bad things were about to happen. Custard and high heat usually mean a weeping, watery mess… …and that’s what…

Crispy Club Sandwiches with Avocado

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 8, 2010 at 7:40am

Tomato season is slowly winding down – enjoy this sandwich soon! You probably don’t need a recipe to make a club sandwich – toast, tomato, lettuce, turkey, bacon, mayo, done. And yet… Perhaps you haven’t made a club sandwich on a grilled bun, smeared with creamy avocado instead of mayo, and let me say that…

Last-Minute Labor Day Ideas!

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 6, 2010 at 10:15am

Happy Labor Day! Are you stopping by for a little last-minute holiday cooking inspiration? I have to confess that this day rather snuck up on me too – denial that summer is ending, I suppose. If you’re running to the market today, wanting to pull something festive together for later this evening, here are some…

A Good Hash

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 5, 2010 at 6:09pm

I’m a bit ahead of the curve here, assuming that you have leftover roast of any sort in early September. (Reveals my fatalistic if-summer’s-over-then-it-must-be-winter attitude.) But just in case… I personally had a few lovely slices of leftover boneless, skin-on turkey breast, which I’d rubbed with herbs and olive oil and grilled until nicely crispy….

Ratatouille with a Poached Egg

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 3, 2010 at 7:35pm

With eggplants of every size and shape at the markets, as well as more than a few chilly evenings under our belts, I’ve been dreaming of a hearty, chunky ratatouille. But like most adults and children alike, I’ve also wanted to try the Ratatouille movie version of ratatouille, with paper thin slices of eggplant, peppers,…
