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,…

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,…

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…

Go for Korean gochujang because it’s incredible (spicy-sweet with just a hint of funky, in the…

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…
