Tahini Dressing

Created March 19, 2019 by lorrie

This is a much lower fat tahini dressing than you’d typically find from a ‘fat based’ dressing. It’s delicious, fast and excellent on more complicated salads using many ingredients from shredded kale and cabbage to carrots and squash. Give it a go!  ~Lorrie INGREDIENTS 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil (Extra Virgin) 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon zest (about...

Sushi Time

Created December 4, 2018 by lorrie

The trick to good (and safe) sushi is the quality of the fish. You can always omit it and use vegetables like avocado instead, but if you’re going all out with salmon and tuna, make sure the fish is FRESH, as in caught very recently and WILD, as in not farmed. While times are changing...
