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…

Raspberry-Mint Simple Syrup | Fresh Tart (AIP, Paleo)

July 2: John & I returned from Provence, France (post forthcoming, sometime in 2011, gah). July 3: I hit the Minneapolis Farmers Market, hard. Five racks of Bar 5 ribs; Blue Gentian Farm lamb chops, sausage, and eggs; many pounds of greens, carrots, beans, herb, berries, onions, garlic scapes, potatoes, and general fabulousness. Oh lovely…

Happy Independence Day!

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 5, 2009 at 11:35am

Oooh! Aaaah! Despite, pouring rain (the skies cleared!) followed by a power outage (returned after a couple of hours; nothing makes one appreciate electricity as much as a power outage!), we pulled off a grand ol’ Independence Day Barbecue yesterday and had ourselves a blast. The kids swam, the adults chatted and noshed, and eventually…
