Cherry, Kale & Kombucha Smoothie (AIP, Paleo)

Cherry, Kale, Kombuch Smoothie and The Wahs Protocol | Fresh Tart (AIP, Paleo)

Now that *poof* it’s hot outside, I’m suddenly in the mood for smoothies. I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with them, mostly because they are billed everywhere as healthy and then whoa, they are loaded with way too much fruit and horrible manufactured protein powders. Not healthy. On the other hand, they’re an…

Bacon-Wrapped Dried Plums with Rosemary Honey | Fresh Tart (AIP, Paleo)

First up: congratulations to Elaine Harbaugh Heffner for winning last week’s The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook’s giveaway! Happy cooking to you, Elaine, I know that you’ll love it. You’ll of course recognize these little tasties as a twist on Devil’s on Horseback (dates stuffed with blue cheese, wrapped in bacon; they’re marvelous). I started playing…

Cheese Crackers with Rosemary & Black Pepper (Gluten-Free)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Nov 27, 2012 at 4:09pm

While you’re busy baking holiday sweets, don’t forget a nod to the savory. Homemade crackers are a thousand times tastier than their boxed counterparts (just like cookies!) and are a breeze to whip up. The cheesy, nutty crunch of these almond-meal cheese crackers needs no topping, just a measure of discipline to not inhale a…

Party Popcorn!

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Nov 6, 2012 at 2:59pm

As we head into holiday entertaining and craziness, don’t forget about popcorn! I am NOT talking about microwave popcorn, I’m talking about the real deal, popped in a pan, which takes about 5 minutes to make and tastes 50 million times – maybe 100 million times – better. When you’re done, you have a bowlful…

Arancini | Fresh Tart (Gluten-Free)

Like some sort of mad fryentist, give me a pan of hot oil and I will riff on and on and on… SeeĀ Fried Cheese CurdsĀ for what was really Part II of my latest fry tear (and a delicious one at that). Part I began last Friday night, when my cousin Kelly and her husband Jomo…

Fried Cheese Curds

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 28, 2012 at 10:27am

You probably don’t want to know this, but it’s seriously easy to make fried cheese curds at home. In fact, in the time you spend in line at the Minnesota State Fair, sweating your brains out while standing on a smushed-curd covered floor, you could have whipped up a batch at home and EATEN it….

Fermented Cucumber Pickles (Paleo, AIP) and Pickling the Market

Fermented Pickles | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

If you’re a fan of deli-style pickles, then you’re a fan of salt-brine fermented pickles. I am too, I am too! In fact, I’ll never forget the first time I had fat slices of salty fermented pickles at Upstairs Downstairs Deli in Madison, Wisconsin – bright green and uber-garlicky, I couldn’t stop eating them. (What…

Fried Cheese with Almond Meal Crust (Gluten-Free)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 19, 2012 at 7:03pm

So I had fried cheese for both breakfast and dinner today. I am ridiculously obsessed with the stuff right now, to such a degree that I kind of embarrassed myself a couple of weeks ago raving about the gluten-free fried cheese curds at Red Stag in NE Minneapolis to Ryan Petz of Fulton Beer. When…

Nettle Salt

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 2, 2012 at 10:26am

As someone who spends a lot of time in grocery stores, it’s hard to deny the primal thrill of foraging for edibles in the great outdoors. It’s similar to the pleasure in picking tomatoes I’ve grown myself, except a bit more powerful. There is, in fact, a Hierarchy of Food-Gathering Satisfaction, which exists completely in…

It’s a little bit ridiculous that I haven’t posted about sopes before – I make and devour them several times a week. In fact, I’m a maniacal cornmeal cake fan in general. Chef Thomas Boemer had an insane version on Corner Table’s menu a couple of weeks ago, with a bit of lard kneaded in,…
