Pan-Roasted Chicken with Figs & Mushrooms (Paleo, AIP)

Pan-Roasted Chicken with Figs & Mushrooms | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

The chicken is secondary in this recipe as far as I’m concerned – this dish is about the fresh figs. When perfectly ripe, figs are of course delectable eaten out of hand. But by applying just a bit of heat – either by running them under the broiler or searing them briefly in a bit…

Pot Roast with Kale & Horseradish | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

I’m back with another braised beef dish! I’ll pretend like I meant to post recipes for beef short ribs and beef pot roast within a couple of weeks of each other, a braised beef series of sorts…except that would be untrue. I’m really just busy, and kind of chilly with the change in temps, and…

Braised Beef Short Ribs: Braise Once, Eat Twice or More | Fresh Tart (Paleo AIP)

Aaaand just like that, it’s braising season. Good, given I’ve been braising all summer long anyhow. I’m a big fan of batch cooking – cooking enough food to last a few meals – and there’s no better way to batch cook than to braise, no matter the season. Whether you cook low-and-slow in your oven…

Pan-Seared Flatiron Steak with Crispy Hash | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

If you cut me, I’m pretty sure I’d bleed hash. I am hash. Not a day goes by that I don’t saute a crispy pan of something wonderful, whatever is in season and in my fridge, fresh or leftover (preferably both). Hash can be the main event, with meat combined with vegetables, or it can…

Empanada Flatbread | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP)

The countdown is on. We take my son Nathan to college next week and I’m riding a roller coaster of joy and grief that I’ve dreaded since he was born. The time we spend together grows more and more precious, which has been happening all year, but in the last weeks has intensified into slow-motion,…

Whether your jam is chandeliers, bulk discounts, cheerful baggers, or mile-long meat counters, there is a store for every style, budget, and palate. (Except wine drinkers, you still have to hit…

Beef, Bacon & Kale Meatballs (AIP, Paleo)

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,…
