I’m right there with you! With bottles of commercial kombucha coming in at four or more dollars each, we’d have to tweak the grocery budget a bit to keep the big Daddykirbs family supplied with this fun, fizzy beverage.

How To Make Fermented Hot Sauce

Homemade Fermented Hot Sauce

This experiment in fermentation was fun. Last night I had hot sauce on my dinner. I kept thinking “Will this make me sick?”. We are so brain washed by our culture to believe if it doesn’t come out of a plastic wrapper then it is bad. I’m working on clearing my brain of this kind of thinking, but it lingers. … and no, I did not get sick. It just tasted yummy. Continue reading How To Make Fermented Hot Sauce

Chicken Tortilla Soup – Vitamix

I love Chicken Tortilla Soup! We have found a few recipes that we like, but they all seem too thin or weak or something not up to our ideas of what the soup should be.  Let me fair, I’m not here to say that those other soups aren’t good… they are.  For all I know they are perfectly authentic and made “just right”.
