Beef, Bacon & Kale Meatballs | Fresh Tart (AIP, Paleo)

I’m a meatball fiend so I make these frequently, eating them as is, wrapped in lettuce leaves with good pickles, served as a party appetizer (with roasted vegetables and cherry-barbecue sauce, pictured below), and/or added to soups. (You know how I mentioned last week that I love crispy shrimp as a garnish for soup? Well,…

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…

Kimchi Fried Rice | Fresh Tart

Let me introduce you to your new late night (or morning after?) go-to dish. You can’t argue with the restorative powers of kimchi – spicy fermented vegetables – especially when tossed with rice, sesame oil, and spicy chili paste. Go for Korean gochujang because it’s incredible (spicy-sweet with just a hint of funky, in the…

Salisbury Steak | Fresh Tart

When my sister Stacey and I were little girls in Lakefield, Minnesota, Friday nights were pretty special. Our beautiful mom would get dressed up, with glamorous make-up, hair, and perfume, and she and our dad would head out for a supper club dinner. The next morning they would tell us stories about how “Splash” the…

Chicken Broth | Fresh Tart

Here, in this jar, is the pure gold otherwise known as chicken broth. Utterly delicious yes, but equally as important – soothing. Healing. Not just to my soul, but to my sometimes bitchy digestive system. When I accidentally eat gluten, or hit a non-gluten grain too hard, I had might as well pull out my…

Fall Steak Salad with Sweet Potatoes, Avocado & Maple Vinaigrette | Fresh Tart

As a kid, I thought salad was the food women ate to punish themselves into dropping a few pounds. I used to eat French fries with a knife and fork to pretend I was eating salad, just to feel like a grown-up. I clearly had a lot to learn, including the fact that a well-made…

Smoky Sausage Soup with Kale & Chickpeas | Fresh Tart

I realize, typing this, that I’m hitting you with two soup/stew recipes in a row. Oops! Well, ’tis the season, right? The combination of cool nights and piles of gorgeous harvest apparently makes me want to stew everything in sight. (In fact, I sort of do that, in batches as I go, a way of…

The book is a snapshot of the Twin Cities food scene, incorporating recipes and full-color photographs from chefs, growers, and purveyors.

Dan-Dan Cucumber "Noodles"

I was going to share this recipe next week, but given blistering temps and tropical humidity, today is the day, The Perfect Day, for Dan-Dan “noodles.” I spent yesterday and Sunday out at the Minnesota State Fair, talking about food (of course), sweating like I have never sweat before in my life, and both days…

Happy National Burger Day! In celebration, I present a grass-fed beef/pork combo, laced with ramps and topped with buttery morels and a quick red wine pan sauce. I would have topped it with a fried egg, but given there’s an egg in the mix, I thought that was a bit over-the-top. That said, you could…
