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…

Perfect Soft-Boiled Eggs

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 17, 2012 at 10:56am

When I was a little girl, I thought I’d really be a grown-up when I could eat soft-boiled eggs for breakfast, just like my dad. I was fascinated by the way he carefully tapped the top off with a knife, then sprinkled salt & pepper inside before scooping spoonfuls onto bites of seriously buttery toast…

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,…

Nettle Salt

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 2, 2012 at 10:26am

As someone who spends a lot of time in grocery stores, it’s hard to deny the primal thrill of foraging for edibles in the great outdoors. It’s similar to the pleasure in picking tomatoes I’ve grown myself, except a bit more powerful. There is, in fact, a Hierarchy of Food-Gathering Satisfaction, which exists completely in…

Grilled Butterflied Shrimp (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 24, 2012 at 1:44pm

These grilled butterflied shrimp are more of a technique than a recipe, a simple way to grill truly shrimpy shrimp. Shrimp shells are where the flavor is at – even if you’re preparing shelled shrimp for a salad or pasta, keep the shells! Either freeze them in an airtight plastic bag or make quick batches…

Coconut milk and a cashew butter finish make this gorgeous stew irresistible. This is everything I want to eat right now, after the holidays, when it’s biting cold outside. Recipe for Brazilian Fish, Shrimp & Mussel Stew at Andrew Zimmern’s Kitchen Adventures/Food & Wine Magazine.

Thai Omelet in Coconut Curry Broth

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 31, 2011 at 8:21pm

My son Nathan and I spent our summer Sundays eating our way through Kingfield Farmers Market. We did it last summer too and got in such a fun groove of eating together, visiting with friends, and stocking up on all of our favorite treats for the week. It’s worth noting that it was a much…

Chicken Soup with Kale, Garlic & Sweet Potatoes (Paleo, AIP-Friendly)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 28, 2011 at 12:55pm

My mom is recovering from major surgery here at our home. She spent the first couple of weeks in a hospital and rehab facility, where the food was…truly awful. I brought her little farmer’s market treats like sliced tomatoes and strawberries, to remind her that not all food comes from boxes and cans, but man,…

Braised Pork Shoulder with Chiles & Cinnamon

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 28, 2011 at 9:54am

In my excitement to braise something, anything over the past freezing weekend, I got a little carried away and bought an 8-pound boneless pork shoulder… …for four people, one of whom (Nathan) is hardly ever home and one of whom (my mom) has barely an appetite. But guess what? It’s almost gone! I cut 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:…
