Happy, Healthy Mother’s Day Brunch

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 10, 2009 at 1:23pm

Happy Mother’s Day! It’s been a terrific one for me. My mom and sister Stacey stopped by for a light, simple brunch and some good chat over coffee. I tried a new crustless quiche recipe that completely rocked – only 150 calories/slice but you’d never know it. Loaded with the flavor of Canadian bacon, onions,…

Lovely Lucia’s Lunching

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 9, 2009 at 7:22pm

Pre-Mother’s Day lunch today, score! I do love Lucia’s. I enjoyed a colorful farmer’s salad bursting with crisp greens and jicama, slices of juicy orange, a handful of fresh herbs, and a few slices of salty steak. John dug into a pile of softly scrambled eggs, set off by crunchy focaccia croutons in a pool…

Burgers, Burgers Everywhere

You can tell we’re heading into summer by the number of burger posts around the web. The goods (don’t worry, not all of them are decadent!)… President Obama and Vice President Biden stopped for lunch at Ray’s Hell Burger in DC this week.

Perhaps you heard this week about a recent survey that reveals the French spend almost twice as much time eating each day as Americans do?  My ears immediately perked up, wondering (as I’ve often wondered) about the connection between speed of food consumption and weight.  I’ve noticed in my own life that the more slowly…

More Salmon…

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 4, 2009 at 4:16pm

OK, a new angle on salmon, given my previously stated difficulties in finding an edible version in Minnesota. Taking a page from our foodie friends Kris & Harry, I ordered online. Since I forgot the site they recommended, I poked around myself and chose Vital Choice Wild Seafood for their sustainable practices and interesting product…

Fava, Morel, Coconut

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 4, 2009 at 10:36am

Oh, divine spring, my first plate of morels and favas of the season. Takes a bit of preparation – the favas must be removed from their pods, then quickly blanched, then pinched out of their waxy skins; the morels need a good rinse to remove grit before a quick saute in a teaspoon of olive…

Grill Baby Grill

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 1, 2009 at 1:32pm

Even if you took a break this winter, I’ll bet you’re grilling again now – it’s warm enough for just about everyone to fire ‘er up. Although eating an abundance of grilled (charred) food is sadly not a good idea, I’m not going to sweat one or two grilled meals per week. It’s just so…
