Thanksgiving 2016 Menu

Fresh Tart | Sausage, Wild Rice & Chestnut Dressing (Gluten-free)

I taught my Paleo Thanksgiving class at Kitchen in the Market last Friday and wanted to share the recipes with you all. I LOVE Thanksgiving, every single part of it. Planning, shopping, cooking on my own ahead of time and then with the gang on the big day, setting the table, being with my family,…

Fresh Tart | Rhubarb "Egg" Cream (Primal, Fauxtail)

Happy Fauxtail Friday! And in this case Happy Dessert Friday, because this baby pink beauty is the PERFECT easy summer dessert. “Egg creams” aren’t all that familiar to us Midwesterners, at least these days when soda fountains have all but disappeared. But they’ve persisted on the East Coast, and that’s a wonderful thing, because holy cats…

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…

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

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jan 14, 2015 at 8:29pm
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 giveaway! Happy cooking to you, Elaine, I know that you’ll love it.
