With a few nationally-recognized restaurants under his belt, not to mention a slew of cookbooks, oh and did we mention all those shows on the Food Network (and a new one on Spanish-language network Utilisima), you would think that famed chef Aarón Sánchez would pretty much have a lock on the kitchen in his family for the holidays! But, you would be forgetting that his mother is the wonderful Zarela Martinez, also known as the inventor of upscale Mexican cuisine.

With Thanksgiving just a few days away, we asked half-Mexican, half-Puerto Rican actress Aimee Garcia—who currently stars as Jamie Batista, the nanny to Dexter's (Michael C. Hall) son on Showtime’s hit show, Dexter—to tell us what she's thankful for. Here's what the 32-year-old star said:
1. My Health: "My Dad always said, "If you’re not healthy, you can't do anything—you can't have fun, you can't work...Good health is number one."

In the grand tradition of delicious Latin cooking, we wanted to share our very favorite way to prepare our Thanksgiving turkey. Sure, turkey cooking fads come and go—some choose to fry their birds whole, other go exotic with a Tandoori twist, but we just love the traditional pavochón!
A pavochón is marinated and cooked as if were lechón...in other words, absolutely delicious!

Yes, everyone knows it’s all about the turkey, but one way to step up your Thanksgiving game is with kick-ass sides and desserts. It’s easy with these Latin riffs on five homey dishes. Show up on your host’s doorstep with gorgeous chipotle gratin or luscious pumpkin arroz con leche, and you’ll impress everyone, even those hard-to-please guests.
