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 […]

Watermelon Popsicles with Mint, Ginger & Lime

It's summer. You should totally make the Watermelon Agua Fresca with Mint, Ginger & Lime from http://meatified.com. And then turn it into these amazing watermelon popsicles!

Watermelon Agua Fresca with Mint, Ginger & Lime

This refreshing Watermelon Agua Fresca from http://meatified.com is livened up with mint, ginger, lime & sparkling water for a perfect mocktail. Or cocktail base, should you choose!

So I kind of have a watermelon problem. I either a) cut into these suckers as soon as I get them home, then proceed to eat my bodily weight in sweet, sweet fruity goodness or b) plonk the giant ball o’ fruit on my kitchen counter, then promptly forget all about it until I cut […]

Ranch Guacamole

If ranch and guac had a food love child, this Ranch Guacamole from http://meatified.com would be it. It's a great make ahead dip & will stand in for mayo in your favorite recipes.

I’m usually firmly on Team Chunky Guacamole, preferring my guac to have some junk in its trunk, texture wise. But this sneaky little Ranch Guacamole recipe is the exception. It’s a little weird, a little different and is somehow at its best when whipped up silky smooth for your dipping pleasure. Eh, sometimes I’m a […]
