egg-free, nut-free cocoa fudge brownies and the power of movement

By | March 20th, 2015|A Little Sweet Tooth, Autoimmune Paleo, CrossFit, Health, Movement Tips, Recipes|

Brownies, oh brownies, how I love brownies. You know what else I love (something that I haven't written much about recently, but practice every single day)? CrossFit and movement in general, really. Nutrition is the basis of health, yes, but movement, well that's what makes us human. It's something we all share a need for, [...]

buttery blondies (grain free, nut free, and delicious!)

By | March 16th, 2015|A Little Sweet Tooth, Recipes|

It's about time I posted another dessert recipe... at least that's what my husband argued when it came time for some fresh recipe testing. Sometimes a splurge is necessary, and in cases like this, I would much rather enjoy a treat that's not filled with processed sugars, flours, and crap oils. That's why I keep [...]

how about a quick clean up? #rrquickcleanup

By | February 27th, 2015|A Little Sweet Tooth, Health, Nutrition, Recipes, The Mind|

So we're here. The year is in full swing, we're moving into Spring, and reality is hitting. The gung-ho resolutions of January 1st might be faltering a bit, might be seeming a whole lot less doable now that we're back at work, time is precious, and dammit, those cravings are calling. So what do you [...]

I want to start by taking a quick bit of this post to say MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY HOLIDAYS to all of my readers. I am so thankful for every single one of you, and I am so in awe of where this blog has gone and (hopefully) will continue to go in 2015. Thanks [...]

It's that time of year. The time of year when you can't walk down the street without seeing a persimmon tree or squishing one of the overly ripe fruits under your shoe. My dogs particularly love this time of year and tend to go persimmon crazy whenever we walk under a tree. You'd think we never [...]

apple butter pumpkin pie

By | November 23rd, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Recipes|

Earlier this month, I posted what I believed (and still believe) to be my perfect pumpkin pie. Today, I bring to you a new unique twist on that traditional favorite. I love pumpkin pie. I mean truly, deeply love it. Is that weird? So after finally coming up with a delicious pumpkin pie recipe, I [...]

paleo apple butter

By | November 22nd, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Recipes|

This stuff is good. But don't take my word for it, just make it and see. Who doesn't love anything with butter in the name? While there isn't actually butter in this apple butter, it does provide the most delectable, buttery texture for spreading on all your favorite foods. May I suggest spreading it on pancakes, [...]

the quest for the perfect pumpkin pie

By | November 3rd, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Recipes|

If you follow any of my posts or this blog, you know how much I love Fall. As the first leaves start to change their color, I have visions of family holiday get togethers, cozy sweaters and scarfs, and of course, pumpkin pie. What's not to love? The perfect flaky crust, the creamy, sweet filling [...]

halloween fruit snacks.. a guest post from Uber Fresh

By | October 31st, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Autoimmune Paleo, Recipes|

*This is a guest post from Alice Ger of Uber Fresh* Halloween is around the corner, and we started thinking to ourselves, what are we going to give the cute kiddos that are going to stop by?  We cringed at the thought of high fructose corn syrup, food colorings and preservatives parading in a pretty wrapper. [...]

paleo vanilla ice cream (no ice cream maker needed)

By | September 8th, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Autoimmune Paleo, Health, Nutrition, Recipes|

Because I refuse to admit that summer is coming to a close just yet (even though I LOVE everything about Fall), I decided to finally take the leap and try making my own homemade ice cream. I do not have an ice cream maker, so I knew it was going to be a challenge, but [...]
