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 [...]

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 [...]

banana sweetened cocoa-nut truffles

By | August 31st, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Health, Recipes|

Ask and you shall receive! After posting my chocolate chip chewies (which are sweetened with coconut sugar), many of you who are currently doing a sugar detox or the NorCal CrossFit Summer Challenge asked for a "treat" that you could enjoy without going off plan. I'll tell you what, treats without sweetener are hard to [...]

breaking the sugar habit

By | August 28th, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Recipes|

Let's start of with a fact: Sugar is the number one culprit behind heart disease, obesity, liver disease, diabetes, and even cancer (among other things). Blunt? Maybe. Truth? Yes. Sugar is a silent killer, and unfortunately, it is probably the most difficult thing to remove from our diets. This is not only because it’s incredibly habit [...]

banana nut “bread” pudding…. and keeping things fun

By | August 11th, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Health, Nutrition, Recipes, The Mind|

This past week, Rusty and I took a trip down to Southern California to catch up with great friends at Deuce Gym in Venice, stay with my amazing cousin in the Cactus Casa, and have a blast celebrating our wonderful friends’ wedding. It was a treat to say the least! This trip reminded me of [...]
