Valentines Day Salmon Salad
Easy to do and so wonderfully full of flavor and sexual vitality, this salad will melt the heart of who ever you share it with. Pair it with some popovers and sexy caress pudding.
For each serving:
1 small carrot, sliced
1 celery stalk, sliced
1-2 green onion tops only, chopped
3-4 large butter lettuce leaves, rinsed well
3-5 cooked asparagus stalks, chopped
1/2 ripe avocado, sliced
4-5 ounces of wild salmon
For the dressing:
White miso paste
Dijon prepared mustard
Brown rice syrup
Poach the salmon by placing in a fry-pan with a couple of inches of water and bring to a boil. I like to add some lemon slices and parsley to the water while the fish simmers. Cook the fish until it is light pink all the way through and flakes easily. While the salmon is cooking, arrange the vegetables on a plate for each person. To make the dressing simply combine equal amounts of the miso, mustard and syrup and thin with a little water. Add the salmon and dressing to each plate and enjoy!
These fun little egg rolls are crispy on the outside and eggy on the inside. Fill the muffin cups less than full as they will pop up and over. They are best served right out of the oven so time your meal accordingly.
1 Cup organic unbleached white flour
1 Cup Eden organic soy milk
pinch of sea salt
Preheat oven to 450°F. Combine the ingredients to form a thin batter and pour into oiled muffin cups. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes and then turn the heat down to 350°F. Continue to bake for 20 more minutes or until very golden brown and puffed. Keep the oven door closed all the while they cook.
Story Time (names are changed, stories are true)
Alex is a beautiful girl. A model and a dancer, who moved to Los Angeles from Europe. I found her aloof and somewhat distant. She always seemed to be dating some tall, handsome and very well off guy. She looked like she “had it all”, but Alex wasn’t happy. She was defiant enough to show me that she could eat whipped cream squirted into her mouth right out of the can and wasn’t at all afraid it would effect her beautiful body. Even in that single act was a little girl searching for love. She didn’t feel it from her suitors. She couldn’t find it in shoes or clothes or make-up or jewelry. She couldn’t find it in whipped cream, alcohol or fine dining. She was far less aloof when coming to me for a little help. I asked her what it was she liked about being her and then asked what she didn’t like. She felt very much that she was never good enough and she was out to prove that she was. I did a small amount of work with Alex and watched her blossom very quickly. She got married soon after that and I didn’t hear from her again. I hope that she is looking even deeper and loving who she is. That is when she will be free and find even more precious jewels showing up at her door.

The Ancient Romans reported Asparagus to be an Aphrodisiac. The Indian name for Asparagus is Shatavari, meaning she who possesses a hundred husbands. In Ayurveda, this fast growing veggie is good for strengthening female hormones, relieving menstrual pain, increasing lactation and even promoting fertility. No wonder it has the best flavor in the spring. I prefer the male stalks that are thinner than the females but both are sweet and tender when just picked.
