Pork Tenderloin with Mojo Sauce, served with Medley of Roasted Potatoes

Pork Tenderloin with Mojo Sauce, served with Medley of Roasted Potatoes

This recipe is inspired by a similar presentation found in The Ultra Metabolism Cookbook by Mark Hyman, MD.  I love reading cookbooks, but I often use them as a starting place rather than following to the letter.  That's what happened last night. The main difference between our two versions is in the mojo sauce.  I decided to cook my juices, spices and garlic, intensifying the flavors and reducing slightly then adding the herbs with the heat off but sauce still warm.  My ingredient list is a tad different too, mainly because my local grocer was out of fresh jalapeno peppers.  I...

It is very similar to salmon but has a more delicate taste and firmer texture.  According to the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch, steelhead trout caught in the United States is one of the healthiest types of seafood that you can eat.

Mango Salsa

Mango Salsa

This summer salsa is incredibly delicious and compliments fish tacos, and grilled meats and fish alike!  Ataulfo mangoes are yellow, slightly smaller and narrower than traditional mangoes.  They are delightfully sweet!  Sometimes coined the King of Fruits, mangoes are a nutritious treat.  High in beta carotene, vitamin A & C, and prebiotic dietary fiber, mangoes also have enzymes that aid in digestion.  This may be the only recipe I post without EVOO, but it is special enough on it's own. Ingredients: 2 ripe Ataulfo mangoes 3T red onion, diced 1/3 cup red bell pepper, diced 1T jalapeno pepper, diced 1T...

Orange Olive Oil Cake

Orange Olive Oil Cake

The Furies got this recipe from our customer, Cathie Greenwold, and she graciously let us add it to the site! The addition of cornmeal in the batter almost gives it a texture similar to cornbread.  When I made it, I hesitated to use all of the syrup, don't hesitate! The syrup blends into the cake and it holds up beautifully. Final note, I of course, used plain Greek yogurt.  My favorite way to eat this is as a coffee cake for breakfast. This recipe is from Gran.  She always glazed it with chocolate, but I like the syrup and cream...
