Toasted Coconut Butter

If you like coconut butter, you're going to love this toasted coconut butter from http://meatified.com. It's richer, nuttier & less sweet and best when made with a pinch or two of salt.

If you like coconut butter, you’re going to love toasted coconut butter. It’s much less sweetly dessert-esque and more richly flavored than it’s paler counterpart. Toasting the coconut brings out a deeper, almost nutty depth that straight up coconut butter doesn’t have. It’s such a simple step, but really amps up your coconut butter game! Better […]

My Food Photography Kit

Wondering about what I use to shoot my food photos for http://meatified.com? Here's all of my food photography kit & recommendations in one place!

I’m going to be honest. When I started food blogging, I had given zero to no thought about photography, yet alone good food photography. I was totally caught up in the challenge of adapting to my new, totally-different, “free of everything” diet and, well, making edible food. Everything else back then was secondary. And so […]

Coconut, Rose & Earl Grey Tea Latte

A cozy cup of rose-scented Earl Grey, whipped into a tea latte that's equal parts creamy and comforting. A perfect winter drink from http://meatified.com that's vegan, aip & paleo.

Coconut Butter Bark, Two Ways

Want a super easy, infinitely adaptable, no added sugar necessary sweet treat? Never fear, coconut butter bark from http://meatified.com is here! Just spread, sprinkle and chill.

Well, brace yourselves: this is probably the first treat recipe to grace this site since about 2013. Yup, twenty thirteen. The year before I wrote a cookbook and THAT feels like eons ago! I wanted to whip up something (last minute, so very last minute) that was a little sweet with a Valentine’s spin, but […]

Pomegranate Pico De Gallo

This pomegranate pico de gallo from http://meatified.com is a nightshade free spin on the classic recipe, no tomatoes needed! Crisp, refreshing and perfect as a dip or by the spoon.

As I type this, I’m bracing for the really angry person who is undoubtedly going to yell at me in the comments about how this isn’t “real” pico de gallo because it doesn’t have any tomatoes or serrano peppers. Yeah, yeah, I know. But here’s the thing: although my Pomegranate Pico de Gallo doesn’t contain […]
