Healing Green Broth | Fresh Tart (AIP, Paleo)

Around five years ago, I somehow fell into the company of a group of incredible women who were about to usher me through a massive life change. I didn’t know it, and they didn’t know it, but in retrospect I can see that the way we became fast friends was a rare and special thing,…

Clam, Halibut & Kale Chowder | Fresh Tart (Gluten-free)

Happy Birthday to me and to Fresh Tart! My baby turned 10 years old on January 6, how crazy is that? If you’re newish to these musings, this blog started as The Moderate Epicurean, reflecting my then efforts to indulge gracefully without compromising my health. It didn’t work very well, ha!

Slow-Cooked Halibut with Warm & Cold Salad | Fresh Tart

This dish of divine represents the beauty of unplanned cooking with friends. You know those meals, usually last-minute, thrown-together affairs – the ones where one friend has some vegetables and another a piece of meat and another some fresh herbs and wine. Spontaneity (and cocktails) draw seemingly disparate elements into a lovely and memorable meal, with everyone agreeing: we HAVE…

Rhubarb Compote | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

Shrimp Chopped Salad with Figs, Squash & Bacon | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

I was going to call this End-of-Summer Salad but that seemed a bit too bleak. The markets are still loaded with peak-season produce at least for a couple more weeks – chin up!To me, a good entree salad is loaded with a variety of colors, textures, and flavors. If it doesn’t hit more than a…

Green Gazpacho with Fried Shrimp

As pretty as green gazpacho is – a tangy twist on the usual – what I enjoy most about this dish is the fried shrimp WITH the gazpacho. With any gazpacho! I ordered the two together in a Palm Beach restaurant years ago – a smooth, creamy gazpacho with a side of hot, crispy little…
