Red Meat

Shepherd’s Pie

It was rainy and gray for a minute today so I made shepherd's pie, rich and savory af, with locally raised Anderson Ranches lamb, and the mashed potato topping is Irish champ style with melted scallions, parsley, and lots of good white cheddar. #dinnertonight #meatconcierge […]

Staycation

I was craving a teriyaki Trader Vic's-style thing so I grilled up a Nicky Farms wild boar patty, yakionigiri (grilled rice balls), fresh pineapple and bell peppers. The wild boar is really nice — it's leaner and more flavorful than farm pork. It goes well […]

Buffalo Ribeye Flatbreads

Grilled Nicky Farms bison ribeye with grilled flatbread; a gremolata of carrot tops, mint, and lovage flowers (all from the garden), lemon juice and garlic; quick-pickled ramps and green strawberries; opal basil flowers, parsley flowers, and salad burnet from the garden; purple cauliflower and carrot […]

Loco Moco

Had a leftover Nicky Farms venison patty and some leftover rice, so I made loco moco of course! Topped with ramen broth gravy (added the veggie pack from some @nongshimusa Shin Ramyun for kick), backyard egg, homemade tamago-nori furikake, served with a little side salad […]

Taco Rice

Okinawan taco rice for #tacotuesday! Mine has some spicy queso on it, but plain old cheddar for the milder tummies in my house. #dinnertonight #yoshoku #wwii #japanesefood #instafood #tacos #rice #queso #weeknightdinner #okinawa #food52 #bareaders #f52grams #hashtagstakemeaway A post shared by Heather Arndt Anderson (@heatherarndtanderson) […]

Pizza Bolognese

Sorry for the dead air for the past…oh, my. It’s been a month. I’ve got a lot of irons in the fire right now (including some projects for print), and this just fell off my radar. But it’s summer! And the garden is full! This […]

Corned Beef Reuben

A day late and a dollar short, as always. I decided to try my hand at corning so I could participate in Charcutepalooza this month, but I forgot that I was supposed to post this on the 15th. Oops. It’s cool, though, I didn’t really […]

Roast Beef Hash

I’ve been on a bit of a comfort food trip lately. I checked out the Williams-Sonoma Comfort Food cookbook from the library, and in attempt to stave off the winter Kill Myselfs, have been cooking my way through it. Actually, I have been mostly just […]

Swedish Meatloaf

…or, New Kind of Neighborhood. I finally moved to WordPress and cooked myself up a new blog. What do you think? I’m still fiddling with design details here and there (I just don’t have the same artistic eye since I quit dropping acid), but overall […]

Animal Style

I recently lucked into some free beef, and I didn’t even have to buy any tires. My old friend, mentor and high school geology teacher Dick Pugh (yeah, yeah, “what a name,” but he’s like 80 so shut the fuck up) was coming over to […]
