Asparagus is a great spring detoxifier for a number of reasons. Its sulfurous amino acids bind to toxins and transport them out of the body, and its anti-oxidant properties (glutathione) assist with liver and kidney function. Continue reading

Tri-Tip Roast Beef

Tri-Tip Roast Beef

Serves: 6-8

So quick, so easy, so yummy! As with all lean cuts of beef, tri-tip is best served medium rare. Organic 100% grass-fed tri-tip tends to run small, so not to worry if you can’t find a cut larger than 2lbs., and buy two if you need it for a large crowd. Try not to over cook, because it will become tough and dried out. The herb measurements are approximate, as I like to generously apply them and rub them into the meat. The best thing about cooking this meat is you can do ahead and then incorporate into many recipes. Have it for dinner and then save the rest for cutting up over a lunch salad. Continue reading

Smoked Salmon Rolls Appetizer

Smoked Salmon Rolls Appetizer

Salmon rolls, so easy. For each slice of smoked salmon, add 1/2 TBS sour cream, 6 capers, and a sprinkling of minced chives. Roll and serve. Garnish with fresh chive, rosemary or dill.

Cooks Note: Check the ingredient label before you purchase sour cream. The only ingredient it should contain is organic cultured cream. It should not contain milk or thickeners such as carrageenan. I like brands that contain live and active cultures and are organic. Wallaby makes a great product and is my favorite. I have yet to find a readily available brand that is made from raw cream.
