Sweet & Sour Rhubarb Compote (Paleo, AIP)

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…

Squash Panna Cottas and A Confession

Squash Panna Cottas | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

I’ve never confessed, in all of this endless chatting about food, how much I experiment on myself. Or how much I am obsessed with nutrition. On a cold night you’ll find me curled up with herbal tea, a snuggly blanket, and a good nutrition book, turning pages as fast as I can. As you know,…

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…

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…

Salted Honey Caramel Sauce | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP, Dairy-free)

I’ve been cooking all morning, making dinner for my mom, sister Stacey, her son Cooper, and my son Nathan – the last I’ll make for him before we take off for college on Tuesday. Sigh.I’m keeping the menu really simple since I obviously don’t want to spend time in the kitchen once everyone arrives. Crudite…

Roasted Strawberry-Rhubarb Sorbet (AIP, Paleo, Vegan)

Roasted Strawberry-Rhubarb Sorbet | Fresh Tart (AIP, Paleo)

I’m a little ahead of the game with a strawberry treat, so tuck this away for a couple of weeks if you’re waiting for the local crop. Or just make the sorbet now because rhubarb is up like crazy, the sun is shining, and any time is the right time for sorbet. I made this…

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.

Fudgiest Brownies (Gluten-Free)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Dec 3, 2013 at 11:47am
Fudgy Browndies (Gluten-Free) | Fresh Tart

The beauty of Alice Medrich’s fabulously decadent cocoa brownie recipe is that flour plays such a minor role in flavor and texture, that it matters not a whit what type you use. Use wheat flour, as the recipe was originally written, and you’ll be thrilled. Or, substitute gluten-free AP flour and be equally thrilled, because…

Coconut Rice Pudding with Apples & Cinnamon | Fresh Tart

I’ve been having a blast submitting comfort food recipes for Xcel Energy’s #XElab Facebook page. In typical Minnesota fashion, we’ve gone from warm to brrr in the blink of an eye and everyone is heading to the kitchen to make soups, stews, roasts, gratins, and warm desserts. In the spirit of #XElab’s goal to share…

Warm Squash Custards with Bourbon & Cream

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 22, 2013 at 1:39pm
Squash Custard with Bourbon & Cream

I tend to make these warm, creamy, pleasantly boozy custards to use up leftover squash but that said…they are SO worthy of custom-roasted squash. In fact, they are worthy of a trip to the store or farmers market to purchase nothing but the ingredients for these custards. When you go, make sure to pick up…
