Pumpkin Spice Truffles

‘Tis the season for pumpkin-flavored everything, and I have been drooling over all sorts of pumpkin-y desserts on Pinterest.  Pumpkin truffles seemed like something that would be easy to adapt into a healthy-ish treat, and indeed they were.  I used a base of coconut butter, coconut oil, and organic pumpkin puree, and spiced it up […]

Paleo Pumpkin Spice Latte

This is my healthier version of the popular Starbucks drink, which, while delicious, is absolutely loaded with sugar.  You can make the recipe hot or iced, but since we are still dealing with weather in the 90’s here I went with iced.  Lots of ice.  I am not really much of a coffee drinker, but […]

Fresh Pumpkin Tart with Honey-Vanilla Bean Glaze

Fresh Pumpkin Tart with Honey-Vanilla Bean Glaze

This is great dessert for a “grown up” Halloween or harvest party–easy to eat with your fingers, not too sweet, and a little bit sophisticated.  The recipe makes two tarts and I cut one into a round and left the other in the out-of-the box puff pastry rectangular shape.  Either way you can cut these […]
