A Chicken Soup Supper

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 8, 2012 at 11:03am

I am obsessed with food writer MFK Fisher (1908-1992). No one writes about food more sensually, with as much humor, and common sense, all together, and I can’t get enough. I took her book With Bold Knife and Fork, published in 1969, with me on vacation last week and was highlighting so many passages on…

Celery Root Latkes

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jan 18, 2012 at 7:15am

Given that everything is better fried – everything – it will come as no surpirse that root vegetables make utterly dreamy latkes. I like celery root in particular for its slightly sweet flavor. These latkes are delicious as is, fresh out of the fat with a dab of sour cream, but my favorite way to…

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:…

Garlic Soup with a Fried Egg

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 13, 2011 at 7:41pm

Think of this soup as comfort food with a kick. The garlicky broth is mellow and sweet, ready and waiting to be made sublime with a fried egg (because a fried egg makes everything sublime…right). I added warmed sausage, white beans, and arugula because that’s what I had in the fridge (see recipe below). Simmer…

Make this. You will not be able to stop eating it. Add cayenne pepper and the perfect amount of salt and you REALLY will not be able to stop eating it. Spoon it over polenta…and forget it. Gone. Saute of Tomatoes and Okra with Bacon Adapted from The Gift of Southern Cooking by Edna Louis…

Coconut Curry Soup with Shrimp & Vegetables

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 17, 2011 at 9:17am

I get so many nice comments about the Quick Coconut Curry with Halibut & Broccoli recipe that I posted last fall that I thought I’d share a soup version of it that I make when the weather turns warmer. I use shrimp instead of halibut so that I can use the shells to make a…
