1 Tbsp black pepper
1 bunch chopped fresh dill

BBQ Sauce

Ingredients:
1 Medium onion
Small handful of garlic cloves
1 Can organic tomato paste
1 Can diced tomatoes or tomato sauce
1/4 cup Apple cider vinegar
1-2 tsp Chili powder (depends on preference for spice)
5-6 Stalks of celery
1 Tbsp olive oil for cooking

 

Chop the onion, garlic and celery in a food processor
If you use diced tomatoes, blend those in the food processor as well
(You will end up mixing everything together, so you can do this all at once)  

(*Pictured: onion)

Mix the blended onion, blended celery, blended garlic, the tomato paste and tomato sauce (or blended diced tomatoes) in a pot with a Tbsp of olive oil

Add the apple cider vinegar and chili powder, mix well

Cover and cook over medium heat, stirring often, for approximately 45 minutes

Use for chicken, pork, beef, etc. For BBQ sauce with more of a kick, add more chili powder or cayenne pepper, to taste

Enjoy!

Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Ingredients:
1 Cup artichokes (I used jarred artichokes)
1/2 Lemon
2 Cups chopped spinach (I used frozen and let thaw on the counter)
1 Package cream cheese (8 oz), softened
2 Tbsp dijon mustard
1-2 Tbsp parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp paprika
Mozzarella cheese for topping

Blend the artichokes, juice from the 1/2 lemon and 1 package of softened cream cheese in a food processor
Add dijon mustard; blend

Put mixture in a baking dish large enough to add spinach and stir
If spinach is not completely thawed or chopped, blend it in the food processor
Mix the spinach with the artichoke and cream cheese in the baking dish
Stir in the paprika and parmesan cheese

Top with mozzarella cheese

Bake at 375 for 20 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown

Enjoy with carrot sticks, celery stalks, broccoli, etc.
