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

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…

Sweet & Sour Broccoli Salad | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP-friendly)

Tonight is National Night Out and given that Minneapolis often ranks number one in participation, you may very well be attending a neighborhood block party this evening. If so, I have just the salad for you, a real crowd pleaser that comes together quickly and stays crunchy and appealing on a buffet. You might recognize…

Helloooooo again and Happy Spring! I’ve been away for so long, finishing a cookbook I’ve been working on called Twin Cities Chef’s Table, highlighting Twin Cities chefs, eateries, and our overall food scene, to be published in Fall 2014. It’s been an incredible project to photograph and write, but I’m excited to be back to…

Spiced Fresh Cranberry Relish Mold

Fresh Cranberry Mold

Poor cranberries. No one really ever eats them, despite tradition, even when made from scratch. I think it’s because Americans are unaccustomed to the delights of chutney-eque condiments. Which is a shame, given the palate-cleansing powers of a tangy, acidic punch on a plate of buttery, rich foods.This recipe is as old school as I…

Brussels Sprouts Gratin | Fresh Tart

I’m always trying to find things to douse in Cedar Summit cream, because let’s face it, I’m obsessed with the gloriously grass-fed stuff. Given a giant bag of darling little baby Brussels from the farmers market, and a hankering for my fave cauliflower gratin, I present the easiest, coziest Brussels dish in the world. I…

Clafoutis

Clafoutis

All-American pie is always perfect, but consider warm, fruity, French clafoutis for this 4th of July celebration. For one, clafoutis is faster to pull together. Can you mix pancake batter? In a blender? Then you can make clafoutis, which is in effect a giant crepe, scattered with fruit, and eaten hot out of the oven…

Whole Fish Baked in a Salt Crust with Fennel & Olives

I had the pleasure just a few short weeks ago of doing a cooking demo at the Minneapolis Home & Garden Show with Sea Change executive chef Jamie Malone. Since the show, Malone was named to Food & Wine Magazine’s list of Best New Chefs 2013! Very exciting for her, and for Minneapolis. If you’re…

Grilled Lamb Chops with Gremolata | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

I know, I know, I should have posted this before Easter, but lamb with gremolata is lovely all spring (year) long, so make it this week instead! I had let gremolata – a relish of minced lemon zest, garlic, and parsley – slip out of my rotation but it’s back with a vengeance, thanks to…

Muffuletta Sandwich: Make-Ahead Sandwich Perfection

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Feb 20, 2013 at 9:41am

Make-ahead sandwiches are a terrific way to feed a crowd and muffuletta sandwiches are the best way of all. First of all, the fresh-spicy giardiniera relish is ridiculously addictive – in fact, make a double batch, put half the vegetables in a jar to enjoy on as pickles, puree the other half to smear on…

Baked Garlic with Rosemary & Blue Cheese

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jan 15, 2013 at 1:31pm

I’ll confess, I meant to get this recipe to you before New Year’s Eve. But in the crush of the holidays, and illness, it did not happen and…well, Happy New Year? The good news is that New Year’s Eve is not the only winter night to invite friends for dinner, and this easy appetizer is…
