Coconut Pancakes with Strawberries

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 2, 2010 at 9:39am

Here’s a…thing. Due to health problems I’d been experiencing for the last couple of years (puffy eyes/hands, fatigue, joint pain), and given that I’m otherwise totally healthy (blood pressure and cholesterol-wise), I started experimenting with eliminating various foods from my diet. I started with nuts, then eggs, then dairy. I felt exactly the same. And…

Homemade Applesauce (Paleo, AIP, Vegan)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 28, 2010 at 5:16pm

I hated applesauce as a kid. (I realize how many blog posts I begin by mentioning a food I hated as a kid. I do it to reassure you, and myself, that picky children often become enthusiastic cooks and eaters. So hang in there if you’re feeding the seemingly impossible.) I hated its grainy, watery…

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…

Leftovers for Lunch: Chickpea Flour Pancake

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 13, 2010 at 10:12am

I’ll just cut to the chase – there is no better way to eat leftovers than atop a chickpea flour pancake. The pancake itself is so flavorful, it could breathe new life into almost any topping. It also takes 3 minutes to make – chickpea flour, stirred with some water, fried in a tiny bit…

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….

Strawberry-Rhubarb Buttermilk Pudding Cake

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 20, 2010 at 7:23am

My friend Susie & I headed back to the Minneapolis Farmer’s Market this morning.  This time we chose a Saturday so we could breakfast on a bratwurst (relish, mustard, thank you) while scoping out the bounty.  We snagged pea pods, green beans, okra, cherry tomatoes, asparagus, dried black lentils, kale, and pork sausage.  Suz was…

Father’s Day…Brunch!

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 18, 2010 at 1:47pm

            If the father in your life loves a good barbecue, then by all means grill away.  I’m right there with him.  But if you’re looking for a new twist…how about brunch? (That’s my Daddy-O, with me the day I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and my no-longer-so-little sis…

The First Thing I Ever Cooked: Buttermilk Pancakes (Gluten-Free Adaptable)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 14, 2010 at 11:44am

Shauna – aka Gluten-Free Girl – tweeted over the weekend about a fun project she thought up for today. She invited food bloggers anywhere and everywhere to post about The First Thing They Ever Cooked. When I saw her tweet, I smiled and sent myself a reminder email titled, “Buttermilk Pancakes!” (That’s what I do…

Potato-Asparagus Frittata

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 12, 2010 at 8:27pm

You’re home from work, tired, starving, needing something warm and nourishing. Don’t forget about eggs, a staple in our kitchen, showing up for lunch and dinner as often as for breakfast. We poach, fry, flip, boil, and scramble them into any number of our favorite dishes, included this easy, delicious frittata. Basically an open-faced omelet,…

Easy Cream Scones

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 29, 2010 at 8:13pm

You might think you don’t like scones, and I wouldn’t blame you. Coffee shop versions are often hideous—crumbly, dry little bricks. Good for making you thirsty for coffee, I guess, but not much else. Unless… You bake them yourself. Yes! Don’t worry, there’s nothing to making these easy, delicious scones except a good appetite. They…
