Zoe and Stephanie

OK here’s an amazing thing. This winter, while I was holed up writing Twin Cities Chef’s Table, my dear friend Zoe Francois was downstairs writing her latest soon-to-be-bestselling book, Gluten-free Artisan Bread in Five Minutes A Day. You see, I rent my lovely apartment aka The Treehouse) from Zoe and her husband Graham. As luck…

Pan-Roasted Chicken with Figs & Mushrooms | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

The chicken is secondary in this recipe as far as I’m concerned – this dish is about the fresh figs. When perfectly ripe, figs are of course delectable eaten out of hand. But by applying just a bit of heat – either by running them under the broiler or searing them briefly in a bit…

Pot Roast with Kale & Horseradish | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

I’m back with another braised beef dish! I’ll pretend like I meant to post recipes for beef short ribs and beef pot roast within a couple of weeks of each other, a braised beef series of sorts…except that would be untrue. I’m really just busy, and kind of chilly with the change in temps, and…

Halibut Coconut Milk Soup with Roasted Squash | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

While I might bemoan the slow fading away of summer – and oh, I do bemoan it, loudly – there’s no denying the deliciousness of winter squash, in full display at every market and grocery store right about now. The acorn varieties are my personal favorite, particularly the jester (stripe-y like a delicata but shaped…

Melon Soup | Fresh Tart (Paleo AIP, Vegan)

It’s not too late, it’s not too late! There are still fantastic melons – cantaloupes and watermelons are my fave, but honeydew is lovely too – to be had at the farmers market, so don’t be too annoyed with me for being so lazy about getting this post up.I was inspired to make melon soup…

Braised Beef Short Ribs: Braise Once, Eat Twice or More | Fresh Tart (Paleo AIP)

Aaaand just like that, it’s braising season. Good, given I’ve been braising all summer long anyhow. I’m a big fan of batch cooking – cooking enough food to last a few meals – and there’s no better way to batch cook than to braise, no matter the season. Whether you cook low-and-slow in your oven…

Shrimp Chopped Salad with Figs, Squash & Bacon | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

I was going to call this End-of-Summer Salad but that seemed a bit too bleak. The markets are still loaded with peak-season produce at least for a couple more weeks – chin up!To me, a good entree salad is loaded with a variety of colors, textures, and flavors. If it doesn’t hit more than a…

Blueberry Kuchen: Round III (Paleo, AIP)

Blueberry Kuchen (Paleo, AIP)

Oh blueberry kuchen, what a transformation we’ve had together. I first introduced my friend Susie Shubert’s summertime dessert back in 2010, when I shared the Kingfield Market Berry Bake Off-winning recipe with TC Taste/Minnesota Monthly Magazine readers…about one month before I quit eating gluten. The next summer, I made a gluten-free version, using almond flour…

Soupe au Pistou | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP, Vegan)

A bounty of garden-fresh vegetables and loads of fresh basil means it’s time for soup au pistou, one of my favorite summer treats. The first time I made it, I was a bit confused by the simplicity of the ingredients: vegetables cooked in water, that’s it? I underestimated the transformative power of pistou, the French…
