Anaheim Chiles

Roasting my own green chiles is so easy I don’t know why I didn’t start doing it sooner. Every year during Hatch chile season, I love the smell of roasting peppers as I enter the grocery stores that roast them on-site. They really do smell amazingly good! Roasting them in the oven was almost just as good. I used Anaheim chile peppers, which are usually pretty mild in heat level. […]

The BEST Green Sauce

Green Sauce

Zesty JalapeƱo Yogurt-Hummus Dip

Zesty Jalapeno Yogurt Hummus

One of my favorite healthy snacks is homemade hummus with veggies. It’s so easy to whip up in the food processor and you can make so many variations of it. It makes a great snack, but you can also use it as a spread on a sandwich if you want. By making your own hummus, you also get to control the quality of ingredients, which is always a good thing!

Smoky Roasted Broccoli with Scallions

Smokey Roasted Broccoli with Scallions

Finding ways to add tasty flavor to veggies is something I love to do. I mean, plain steamed broccoli with a little bit of butter and sea salt is fine, but it can get old sometimes. That’s where spices can really save the day. A little seasoning can take boring old broccoli and turn it into something super delicious! […]
