Fresh Tart | Sausage, Wild Rice & Chestnut Dressing (Gluten-free)

I taught my Paleo Thanksgiving class at Kitchen in the Market last Friday and wanted to share the recipes with you all. I LOVE Thanksgiving, every single part of it. Planning, shopping, cooking on my own ahead of time and then with the gang on the big day, setting the table, being with my family,…

This is now a classic kale salad, first published several years ago, back when kale salads were kinda new and weird. It’s still one of my very favorites for being simple, clean and bright, and just salty and rich enough to be memorable. It holds its own next to a beefy steak or humble roast…

Part I: Breaking Bad Patterns and Healing Green Broth | Paleo, AIP

Healing Green Broth | Fresh Tart (AIP, Paleo)

This is a different kind of post for me, although given the incredibly kind and deeply personal responses to my post describing why I’ve removed alcohol from my life, I thought I’d share some of my observations. Given my past, my age, and feeling seriously unwell for a few years, my focus has become creating the energy and…

Korean Bulgogi (Grilled Steak)

You guys, I’ve already been in Boulder for more than two weeks. WHAT? It took me the first week to feather my nest, find a good daily groove, and get my brain adjusted to the unsettling fact that I’m a long way from home. But a visit from my sister Etta, a last-minute (and utterly stunning,…

Chicken Skewers with Chopped Arugula, Cucumber & Olives | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

Hello from Boulder, Colorado. I’ve just arrived and I’m staying for at least a month. It was a rather last minute decision that had been brewing for awhile, if that makes sense. For the last couple of years, I’d been pondering the fact that because Nathan is in college, and because my work is relatively…

Rhubarb “Egg” Cream for Fauxtail Friday (and for Dessert!) | Primal, Paleo & AIP adaptable

Fresh Tart | Rhubarb "Egg" Cream (Primal, Fauxtail)

Happy Fauxtail Friday! And in this case Happy Dessert Friday, because this baby pink beauty is the PERFECT easy summer dessert. “Egg creams” aren’t all that familiar to us Midwesterners, at least these days when soda fountains have all but disappeared. But they’ve persisted on the East Coast, and that’s a wonderful thing, because holy cats…

Healing Green Broth | Fresh Tart (AIP, Paleo)

Around five years ago, I somehow fell into the company of a group of incredible women who were about to usher me through a massive life change. I didn’t know it, and they didn’t know it, but in retrospect I can see that the way we became fast friends was a rare and special thing,…

Grilled Watermelon Salad with Tomatoes & Charred Beets | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP Adaptable)

I hope you had a lovely July 4th weekend! Isn’t summer just The Best? I did all of my favorite things – farmers market, slept in, walked, hit golf balls, created recipes, wrote, took pictures, sat in the sun, tidied my house, sipped fauxtails, read. The highlight was spending the 4th at Stephanie March’s with…

Tea Rhubarb Sour | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP, fauxtail)

So here’s a thing. I quit drinking alcohol again. I stopped for more than a year while I first followed the autoimmune protocol and observed four significant things: 1) I felt effing awesome. I slept great, I wrote better (which was good, because I was writing Twin Cities Chef’s Table at the time), my mood…

Vietnamese Pork Skewers (Paleo, AIP adaptable)

Vietnamese Pork Skewers

Hi friends! I’m assuming that you have your grills fired up (and if not, these are super easy to make indoors) so I wanted to remind you of these beautiful little flavor bombs, especially because fresh herbs and lettuces have popped up at farmers markets – yay! Make ’em spicy or make ’em AIP (autoimmune protocol-friendly);…
