Cauliflower-Leek Soup with Crispy Shrimp (AIP, Paleo)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 11, 2016 at 6:45am

Around five years ago, I somehow fell into the company of a group of incredible women who were about to usher me through a massive life change. I didn’t know it, and they didn’t know it, but in retrospect I can see that the way we became fast friends was a rare and special thing,…

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 7, 2016 at 5:00am

I hope you had a lovely July 4th weekend! Isn’t summer just The Best? I did all of my favorite things – farmers market, slept in, walked, hit golf balls, created recipes, wrote, took pictures, sat in the sun, tidied my house, read. The highlight was spending the 4th at Stephanie March’s with Tracy Morgan and Joy…

Vietnamese Pork Skewers (Paleo, AIP adaptable)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 23, 2016 at 5:45am

Hi friends! I’m assuming that you have your grills fired up (and if not, these are super easy to make indoors) so I wanted to remind you of these beautiful little flavor bombs, especially because fresh herbs and lettuces have popped up at farmers markets – yay! Make ’em spicy or make ’em AIP (autoimmune protocol-friendly);…

Chicken Hash Brown Patties with Pesto (Paleo, AIP) and a Giveaway

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 5, 2016 at 4:59pm

Spring has sprung and I couldn’t be happier! Despite daylight savings, more sunshine, color, fragrance, and warmer temps mean I hop out of bed earlier and have more energy to do the things I love most – read and write and talk about creating the energy to live a big and vibrant life, starting with delicious, deeply…

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…
