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…

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…

Roasted Grapes with Pork Tenderloin | Fresh Tart (AIP, Paleo)

Jams, sorbets, crisps, and cobblers are all delectable tricks for managing the bounty of the season and we should all continue to employ (and devour) them as often as possible. But in case you’re as smitten with the savory side of fruit as I am, roasting fruit with fresh herbs and olive oil is a…

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…

Strawberry Heaven Part II: Grain-Free, Gluten-Free Strawberry Shortcakes

Strawberry Shortcake | Fresh Tart (gluten-free)

I made the almond flour biscuit recipe on Elana’s Pantry blog and they are fantastic! Perfect, in fact, for grain- and gluten-free strawberry shortcakes. I used real butter (instead of margarine) and maple syrup (instead of agave syrup) with a wonderful result. Split while hot, spread with butter, fill with lightly sweetened strawberries, top with…

Strawberry Heaven!

Strawberries | Fresh Tart

Strawberry time! Geez, finally, like everything in Minnesota this year, they took their sweet time ripening & readying for picking. But here they are, making everyone happy and hungry for strawberry summer treats. I received a whole flat of freshly-picked strawberries from my friend chef Scott Pampuch. After blanketing juicy slices in buttermilk pancakes for…

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…

Grilled Watermelon Salad with Cherry Tomatoes & Charred Beets

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Aug 12, 2012 at 1:50pm

I got clocked on the head by an acorn last night during my after-dinner walk. Ouch! And not because it actually hurt, but because of what the acorn was telling me: “Summer is winding down and September is almost here, my dear.” Aw, shucks. But not shucks! Because September is the best food month of…

Warm Fruit Crisp (Gluten-Free…or not)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 24, 2012 at 11:58am

As a typical Minnesotan, with one eye always on winter, I get overly enthusiastic about the bounty of perfect, juicy stone fruits and berries available at this time of year. Somehow peaches, plums, raspberries, blueberries, and cherries all make it into my kitchen, all at the same time, without a chance of being devoured before…
