gluten free persimmon loaf

By | 2017-12-10T11:13:01+00:00 December 10th, 2017|A Little Sweet Tooth, Breakfast, Grab and Go, Health, Recipes|

I LOVE persimmons - persimmons with nut butter, persimmons in salads, persimmon muffins, persminis, and now, in what is potentially my new favorite persimmon thing: my gluten free persimmon loaf. This loaf is somewhere between a bread loaf and a blondie, with the perfect amount of sweet and a heartiness that leaves you feeling satiated [...]

winter cider sangria

Cheers to a great 2015. Loads of change came my way (and by no happenstance also to Radical Roots). The blog got a whole new facelift. I moved to a whole new state. I explored the forests and beaches of the Pacific Northwest, picked wild blackberries, grew our first bit of food, foraged for mushrooms, and climbed [...]

pumpkin pie bites

Pumpkin pie easily makes my top ten favorite desserts list. It's so good, in fact, that I've decided to make a whole new dessert inspired by this favorite. This past month we had a group of friends over to hangout. We provided a variety of nibbles but no sit down meal. I wanted to make [...]

snickerdoodle love

By | 2016-03-21T15:38:40+00:00 October 28th, 2015|A Little Sweet Tooth, Health, Recipes|

Snickerdoodles.... a childhood favorite. A cookie with enough sentiment to bring you right back to after school cookies and milk at your best friend's house.  A little crispy on the outside, perfectly fluffy on the inside, and now officially, thanks to this recipe, the most PERFECT cookie ever. Let me repeat that... these are PERFECT. And it's [...]

creamy tomato soup… a favorite family tradition

By | 2016-12-20T11:26:53+00:00 December 29th, 2014|Recipes, Soups, Salads, Sides|

As far back as I can remember my family has spent Christmas Eve at my great aunt and uncles (the coolest God Parents a girl could ask for). Some of my most cherished memories are from this night once a year where the parents would eat raw oysters (which I thought were nasty). Where I had [...]

cranberry lemon swirl pancakes

By | 2015-03-31T13:40:09+00:00 December 11th, 2014|Breakfast, Recipes|

Pancakes... oh how I love pancakes. There was a time, after realizing how severe my intolerance was to certain foods, when I thought I would never get to enjoy pancakes again. I tried all kinds of "paleo" pancakes and would always end up feeling bloated, heavy, and uncomfortable from loads of almond flour and a tummy [...]
