Ohhh my MY. These cardamom CARAMEL and pear cookie crumble cups (say that three times fast!) are like a giant dessert hug from all that is fall and I am SO excited to share this easy and incredibly splendid recipe with you.

THEY ARE BEYOND, YOU GUYS. I know I say that sort of thing a lot around here, but uhhhh my goodness.

They are perfectly fall in every aspect of their dessert-ness and I’m literally obsessed. Plus they are made with only one pan and ready in 30 minute so I just know you’re gonna love ’em.

And then we can be obsessed together and have dinner parties where we serve cardamom caramel and pear cookie crumble cups for dessert and everyone else is gonna fall in love with them toooo.

Sound like a plan? 😉

Okay all you sauce loving readers of mine, this one’s for you.

A perfect 5 minute paleo green onion and cilantro sauce for you to put on EVERYTHING.

I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again (and again, and again… 😜) NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF A GOOD SAUCE. It can literally take a meal from pretty okay to out-of-this-world amazing.

This green onion and cilantro loaded sauce has been on a very steady rotation in our house for at least the past 4 months.

I think I first made it at work on a whim and then made it again and again at home and beyond.

It sat in on an impromptu post-moving-day dinner with friends and turned our simple cast iron seared tri-tip steak into something super special and yummy. Has been poured over a pile of buckwheat soba noodles many times, and also marinated some crisp cucumber slices to crunchy tangy perfection (more on that one, in another post! 😉)
