If you have never made roasted garlic, you are totally missing out! I love the depth and richness that roasted garlic brings to food. It also tames the sharpness of the garlic into a more mild almost sweet version. Those who normally shy away from garlic because of its strong taste may actually [...]
Because I have a ‘beaucoup’ of apples (they’re in season, ya know?) I decided to try making a broth flavored with apples. Rosemary pairs well with chicken and apples so I threw several sprigs of that in the pot as well. Why would you want to make broth with apples instead of veggies like [...]

“I love it when a plan comes together!” Do you remember that phrase from the 80′s TV series the A-Team? Well, that was the exact thought that crossed my mind in addition to “Thank you, Jesus!” when my Puto came out perfectly for the first time in 13 [...]
I originally made this without coconut milk and such, but I tweaked it to match my new Real Food lifestyle. It was excellent before, but now it ROCKS! ENJOY and let me know what you think! I do this in the crock pot, but with some variation you could probably use a [...]
