Fresh Tart Fresh Start 2016 + Clam, Halibut & Kale Chowder

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jan 19, 2016 at 8:54pm

Happy Birthday to me and to Fresh Tart! My baby turned 10 years old on January 6, how crazy is that? If you’re newish to these musings, this blog started as The Moderate Epicurean, reflecting my then efforts to indulge gracefully without compromising my health. It didn’t work very well, ha! In fact, in retrospect,…

Marvelously Rich and Simple Mushroom Soup (Paleo)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 14, 2015 at 12:48pm

As a mushroom fiend, I’ve made many attempts at mushroom soup, never to discover one that I wanted to make again. I wouldn’t keep trying if I hadn’t had the craveable ones, the ones that are the very essence of mushroom, earthy and savory and marvelously rich with hot cream and buttery fresh wild mushrooms. Since I can’t afford to make soup…

Tender Pork Meatballs in Marcella Hazan’s Tomato Butter Sauce (Paleo)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 15, 2015 at 5:41pm

Hi! How was your summer? Goodness it flew by, like they all do, and yet we are all surprised to see the first yellow leaves scattered on the ground. I love that about Minnesotans – we are bonded by our collective denial and climatic optimism. WINTER MIGHT NOT COME THIS YEAR. Um. I haven’t been posting here as…

Sweet & Sour Rhubarb Compote (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 23, 2015 at 8:34pm

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…

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 18, 2015 at 9:52am

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 (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 27, 2015 at 1:26pm

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 (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 5, 2015 at 11:55am

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…

    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…

Fat Part I: Bulletproof Coffee or Tea #vroom

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Feb 9, 2015 at 11:41am

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…
