Hi Guys, How is summer??? EEEEEK I’m super excited. As many of you know my house is still under reno’s and just recently got my new Caesarstone counter-tops installed. I’m ecstatic! They are flawless and beautiful and exactly what i’ve wanted for oh so long now. Now my foodblog pics have a higher quality look to them. I’m so pleased. Time to fine tune my Canon Rebel T3i camera and get to work!
Last week I made some Blackened Salmon Tacos. There are no words for this easy recipe and there was also no room…. no room to eat as much as I could have, that’s for sure! Wow, great way to enjoy some tender flaky juicy fish this summer. The recipe for the Blackening Seasoning will be my next blog post. This is the dressing that I always make and it was great on the fish tacos.
Hope you like!

↑ Bee Pollen is one of Mother Natures little goodies. I add a little to every salad dressing I make. You can add it to anything though; soups, sauces, whatever you like. The flavour is like a flower. Its got a floral taste when it hits your tongue. It comes in the natural foods section of your grocery store and looks like little gold nuggets. I grind them down with a mortar and pestle. I have a small one that I use for spices and such. Another inexpensive way to make your kitchen/cooking life a little easier.
Here’s some info on Bee Pollen I picked up from http://www.mercola.com
What Is Pollen?
Pollen is the male seed of flowers. It is required for the fertilization of the plant. The tiny particles consist of 50/1,000-millimeter corpuscles, formed at the free end of the stamen in the heart of the blossom. Every variety of flower in the universe puts forth a dusting of pollen. Many orchard fruits and agricultural food crops do, too.
Bee pollen is the food of the young bee and it is approximately 40% protein. It is considered one of nature’s most completely nourishing foods. It contains nearly all nutrients required by humans. About half of its protein is in the form of free amino acids that are ready to be used directly by the body. Such highly assimilable protein can contribute significantly to one’s protein needs.
