Gar-licky Oven Roasted Veggies

If you're looking for a simple and delicious recipe that works with whatever veggies are fresh in the market, you will want to give this recipe a go. 

My staples here in Mexico are carrot, onion and zuchini but any root vegetable or tuber works well. 

I cut them into big chunks (3 inches in length or so) so that they retain the slightest crunch after baking.

Tip: Serve them cold as seen here with hummus in place of salad.

Pulled Turkey in Pipian

This might go down as the easiest recipe of all time.

I know we often think dry and bland when it comes to turkey but this recipe breaks the mold. Thanks to the slow cooking, the turkey comes out moist and rich and the Pipian sauce imparts a deep, earthy flavor.

This pulled turkey works great on tacos, your kids sandwiches, or to top a salad.

Chocolate Banana + Beet Brownies

Flour, sugar and fat-free brownies? Yup, I went there.

I won't lie, I really wanted to hate this recipe but it was so simple I had to give it a go. Much to my surprise, the brownies turned out moist and delicious, with a texture and color more akin to red velvet cake.
