Paleo Apple Tart

Posted on October 29, 2012

When chilly weather arrives the boys ask for Paleo Apple Tart with Pecan Crust on a nightly basis.

Cold weather means apple pie (or some version thereof) in my house.  Our favorite is this cinnamon-spiked apple tart encased in a pecan crust. Since my boys go gaga for anything involving baked apples, this gluten free apple tart with a high protein, grain free crust doesn’t last long around here.

I love that the boys (and their friends) gobble down a treat high […]

Paleo Pecan Tart Crust

Posted on October 26, 2012

Here’s a healthy paleo tart crust made from pecans, egg and coconut flour –gluten free, of course!

This quick and easy gluten free tart crust holds together very well and has a wonderfully nutty flavor.

The first few times I made this high protein, paleo tart crust, I had it with apple filling. I think it would be even better with the pumpkin pie filling recipe in The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook. Feel free to experiment and fill this tart crust with […]

How to Make Pumpkin Spice Lattes

Posted on October 17, 2012

Filled with freshly ground cinnamon and other antioxidant rich spices, I serve healing Pumpkin Spice Lattes piping hot.

Now you can make your own dairy free Pumpkin Spice Latte with coconut milk instead of cow’s milk. Make this beverage low sugar as well by using honey and stevia in place of refined sugar. I based my recipe on the Pumpkin Spice Latte from recipegirl.com. Lori’s site, gorgeous and hip, is a wonderful source of inspiration.

Did you ever wonder what’s in Starbucks […]

Paleo Pumpkin Bars

Posted on October 16, 2012

‘Tis time for all things pumpkin and squash, including velvety Paleo pumpkin bars.

Pumpkin season is my favorite time of year. When the days get shorter, the nights cool and crisp, I indulge in my fascination with those odd shaped, brightly colored vegetables known as winter squash.

Pumpkin is a type of winter squash, and I use a variety of winter squash in my pumpkin recipes. For these Paleo Pumpkin Bars I chose roasted acorn squash, though you could just as easily […]

Roasted Acorn Squash

Posted on October 8, 2012

Roasted winter squash, a golden harbinger of the chilly season to come.

I’m obsessed with winter squash, especially when it’s roasted. Acorn squash is one of my favorite vegetables in the entire world. My younger son likes it just as much as I do. In fact, he and I ate so much squash when he was a baby that he had a nice orange glow to him from an (over) abundance of beta carotene.

Now he’s bigger and he still likes squash. […]

Sukkot or Sukkos is the Jewish harvest festival. This holiday takes place on the 15th of the month of Tishrei (sometime between late September to late October), and occurs on the full moon (the Jewish calendar is a lunar calendar and many of our holidays start on the full moon).

The word sukkot literally means “booth” or “tabernacle” and the holiday is often referred to as the […]
