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….

Coconut Pork Lettuce Wraps | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

Let’s talk babies! Even though my son is 19 years old now, and 6’5″ tall,  he’s still a baby in my mind. Blame Mother’s Day and the pregnancy of my friend Joy Summers, who recently gave birth to her perfect rosebud of a daughter, Baby CC. You guys, I haven’t held a newborn baby in…

Ginger Scallion Beef Stir-Fry | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

Do you make the mistake of cooking alone ALL THE TIME? I mean, if cooking alone is your meditation and therapy, then by all means om away. But if you feel a bit sizzly and pouty about solo chopping, then it’s time to enlist a sous chef or two. Food is supposed to be fun…

Ginger Scallion Sauce | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP, Vegan)

If variety is the spice of life, then condiments are the key to simple variety. I call my friend Erica Strait of Foxy Falafel the Queen of Condiments for all of the creative zing she brings to her fresh and vibrant food, including the autoimmune protocol (AIP) offerings she’s including each week on Foxy’s menu….

10-Minute Spring Soup (Paleo, AIP, Bone Broth) | Fresh Tart

Sometimes, I am a damn fool. The more I talk with people about whole food/paleo, anti-inflammatory food choices, and the autoimmune protocol in particular, the more I recognize a stage we all pass through – we start to feel better, and then we forget that we can’t eat whatever we want, and then we eat…

Bulletproof Coffee (or Tea) | Fresh Tart

First, a note. I’m one year into following the autoimmune protocol/AIP and have successfully reintroduced a few foods (including coffee, thus this post). I’ll be writing an update post soon – some reintroductions have been more successful than others, but in general, I am still following AIP 90% of the time and feeling better than…

Pressure Cooker Carnitas | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

Sorry for the less than fab photo – I only had my phone with me… Happy Monday! As I chat with people about the obstacles of adopting a real food lifestyle, I’ve come to realize that one of the biggest is the fear of standing out and/or annoying people. Which is totally legitimate, I’ve had…

Squash, Beet & Apple Salad | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

Have I ever shared with you my purpose? That’s a rhetorical question because I know that I haven’t. For someone who puts a LOT of my life out into the ether – at least my food life – I’ve held much closer my dreams and plans for the future. It’s icky scary to put out…
