Shrimp Wrapped in Pancetta with Sage | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

Mushroom Soup | Fresh Tart (Paleo)

As a mushroom fiend, I’ve made many attempts at mushroom soup, never to discover one that I wanted to make again. I wouldn’t keep trying if I hadn’t had the craveable ones, the ones that are the very essence of mushroom, earthy and savory and marvelously rich with hot cream and buttery fresh wild mushrooms. Since I can’t afford to make soup…

Tender Pork Meatballs in Tomato Butter Sauce

Hi! How was your summer? Goodness it flew by, like they all do, and yet we are all surprised to see the first yellow leaves scattered on the ground. I love that about Minnesotans – we are bonded by our collective denial and climatic optimism. WINTER MIGHT NOT COME THIS YEAR. Um. I haven’t been posting here as…

Kefir Maple Bourbon Panna Cotta  with Strawberry Jam & Black Pepper

My five year anniversary of going gluten-free is fast approaching. What an adventure it’s been and what a good reminder that sometimes the things that seem so hard provide the very kick in the pants we need to move onward and upward. Going gluten- and grain-free aka paleo changed my health, and then my energy, and…

Slow-Cooked Halibut with Warm & Cold Salad | Fresh Tart

This dish of divine represents the beauty of unplanned cooking with friends. You know those meals, usually last-minute, thrown-together affairs – the ones where one friend has some vegetables and another a piece of meat and another some fresh herbs and wine. Spontaneity (and cocktails) draw seemingly disparate elements into a lovely and memorable meal, with everyone agreeing: we HAVE…

Rhubarb Compote | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

Did you know that rhubarb is an aphrodisiac? Don’t tell the Lutherans (I’m Lutheran by baptism, for the record), but it is, and it likely explains why we all go gaga for the stuff. In fact, I have a theory that anything that captures Pinterest’s collective imagination is an aphrodisiac. Yes, that means we are…

Saffron's Grilled Lamb Chops with Greek Spice & Herbs | Fresh Tart

How’s your summer going? Yeah SUMMER! I just love having Nathan home from school, not to mention stealing as many meals and sips and walks outside as I can. I hope you are too – from the looks of my Instagram feed, you most certainly are grilling, biking, gardening, hiking, beaching, picnicking, and having a grand ol’ time….

Coconut Pork Lettuce Wraps | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

Let’s talk babies! Even though my son is 19 years old now, and 6’5″ tall,  he’s still a baby in my mind. Blame Mother’s Day and the pregnancy of my friend Joy Summers, who recently gave birth to her perfect rosebud of a daughter, Baby CC. You guys, I haven’t held a newborn baby in…

Ginger Scallion Beef Stir-Fry | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

Do you make the mistake of cooking alone ALL THE TIME? I mean, if cooking alone is your meditation and therapy, then by all means om away. But if you feel a bit sizzly and pouty about solo chopping, then it’s time to enlist a sous chef or two. Food is supposed to be fun…

Ginger Scallion Sauce | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP, Vegan)

If variety is the spice of life, then condiments are the key to simple variety. I call my friend Erica Strait of Foxy Falafel the Queen of Condiments for all of the creative zing she brings to her fresh and vibrant food, including the autoimmune protocol (AIP) offerings she’s including each week on Foxy’s menu….
