Grain-free Beef Short Rib Tacos with Arugula Chimichurri | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

This post contains affiliate links. Happy Spring! Happy Taco Tuesday! Happy Birthday Mom! I’m covering a lot of bases with these tacos, ha. Luckily, they’re worthy of carrying all of those good wishes. I mean, what’s not to love about chewy, beefy, sassy tacos that just happen to also be gluten-free, grain-free, and autoimmune protocol compliant…

Cold Peanut-Sesame "Noodles" | Fresh Tart (grain-free)

I had the pleasure of chatting about cooking and healthy eating tips with a group of smart and lovely people at Weber Shandwick PR this past Friday. Given we were talking in an office conference room, there wasn’t the option to cook a dish for them, so I made the group an easy and flavor-packed cold dish that…

Perfectly Seared Scallops | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP Option)

Photo (and scallops) by Erik Eastman Every once in awhile – or hopefully often, which is my goal – you stumble into a situation so ridiculously sparkly and rich and delicious that time falls away and all you can think to say, over and over again, is: This is amazing. This is amazing! THIS IS AMAZING….

Mushroom Soup | Fresh Tart (Paleo)

As a mushroom fiend, I’ve made many attempts at mushroom soup, never to discover one that I wanted to make again. I wouldn’t keep trying if I hadn’t had the craveable ones, the ones that are the very essence of mushroom, earthy and savory and marvelously rich with hot cream and buttery fresh wild mushrooms. Since I can’t afford to make soup…

Tender Pork Meatballs in Tomato Butter Sauce

Hi! How was your summer? Goodness it flew by, like they all do, and yet we are all surprised to see the first yellow leaves scattered on the ground. I love that about Minnesotans – we are bonded by our collective denial and climatic optimism. WINTER MIGHT NOT COME THIS YEAR. Um. I haven’t been posting here as…

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…

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)

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…

Saffron's Grilled Lamb Chops with Greek Spice & Herbs | Fresh Tart

How’s your summer going? Yeah SUMMER! I just love having Nathan home from school, not to mention stealing as many meals and sips and walks outside as I can. I hope you are too – from the looks of my Instagram feed, you most certainly are grilling, biking, gardening, hiking, beaching, picnicking, and having a grand ol’ time….
