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…

Roasted Chicken Thighs with Sweet Potatoes, Kale & Herbs

Chicken Broth | Fresh Tart

Here, in this jar, is the pure gold otherwise known as chicken broth. Utterly delicious yes, but equally as important – soothing. Healing. Not just to my soul, but to my sometimes bitchy digestive system. When I accidentally eat gluten, or hit a non-gluten grain too hard, I had might as well pull out my…

Weeknight Chicken & Butternut Squash Stew | Fresh Tart

And just like that it’s cinnamon season, cool and crispy. Everyone loves fall, but I think Minnesotans love it more, in a nervous sort of way, bookended as it is between months of sweat and shivering. We understand that open windows are a rare and special treat, enjoyed most heartily right now, in late September/early…

Avgolemono Soup | Fresh Tart

You might not think of making a pot of chicken broth on a warm summer day, but I suggest it anyhow. There are just so many fast, flavorful meals that spin out of one simple stockpot, for several days into the week, that it’s the perfect summer Sunday move. Plop a chicken in a pot,…

Chicken Soup with Kale, Bacon & Sweet Potatoes | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

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,…
