This is an old post… that never got posted. I wrote it when I was pregnant with Avi… it’s crazy to think that was about two years ago. When I found it this afternoon I was going to rewrite the whole thing and only keep the recipe. But I wrote it then, and it brought(…)
Lately my posts have been deeper, more philosophical and not super joyful.. Time for a bit of a change. I’m certainly not always in that frame of mind,although it does seem to be more of a new norm for me!
Recently we’ve shared a few of our kombucha SCOBYs and with it come 1000s of questions! Not that I don’t mind answering them.. in fact it’s quite a boost to the ego when people think you are the resident authority on something!

A while back I mentioned making Kombucha. I have made this a few times, but the flavor is a little too much like vinegar for me. I know I could brew it for a little less time to take out some of the vinegar taste, but I also want the amazing health benefits. I usually(…)
$2 for a can of organic coconut milk at wegmans; $1.50 and 10 minutes time to make it at home! I’m all about saving anywhere I can! Plus I know the only ingredients are coconut and water. I can be in control of what is added to it! I know there aren’t any extra ingredients(…)
