  1. I took a bit of a break over the summer, but just started a new batch of kombucha. Peach ginger in 2 bottles and kiwi aloe with bee pollen in the 3rd bottle. As a side note, if you're in the DC area and would like a jun kombucha SCOBY, let me know as I have several right now but will be throwing them away in about a week.
  2. I saw this recipe recently for Filipino ground beef omelette. I decided to give it a try and on Sunday, fried up a lb. of ground beef w/ a can of diced tomatoes, 1 diced onion, garlic and frozen mixed veggies. Once that was cooled, I popped it in the fridge for the next morning. Each morning, I've been scrambling up an egg and adding a bit of the beef mixture to make a fritter and it's delicious and easy.
  3. Kombucha at it's simplest is fermented tea and definitely can upset your system if you have too much. I'm not as big a fan of regular kombucha, which has a black tea base, but enjoy jun kombucha, which is made from green tea. Some folks rave about the supposed health effects, others call out the minimal alcohol content. Me, I'm in it for taste.
  4. Based on this post, we made the Shaking tofu recipe the same way last night but we had no leftovers. My husband isn't a fan of watercress, so he really liked this with baby spring greens. This recipe is definitely a keeper.
  5. We had some really ripe bananas and blueberries hanging out, so I made oat blender pancakes for breakfast today.
  6. Dinner tonight was halloumi hummus bowls with farro.
  7. Hubby made a vegetarian lentil shepherd pie from The Kitchn and it was delicious.
  8. We got a refurbed Vitamix, so I decided to try a new recipe. We made blender gluten-free banana oat pancakes and they turned out very well and very tasty.
  9. We went to Far East Restaurant in Rockville on NY Day and it was enjoyable.
  10. I had some items that needed to be used up, specifically 2 chicken breasts, a bag of small potatoes and a 1/2 cup of heavy creamy. I boiled the potatoes then mashed them with their skins on and added some of the cream instead of milk with the butter. Then I cut up and sauteed the chicken breasts, added some pesto and the rest of the heavy cream. I was very happy with how it came together and tasted.
  11. We were at the farmer's market the other day and one of the booth's was giving out samples of black bean soup. I wasn't in the mood for it right then, but I came home and decided it needed to be made this weekend. I used this recipe and it turned out really well: https://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/instant-pot-black-bean-soup
  12. Tonight was leftover butternut squash curry with couscous. My husband made it using this recipe: https://www.halfbakedharvest.com/slow-cooker-thai-butternut-squash-curry/ I think he was a bit overzealous with the red curry paste as it's got a nice kick.
  13. Really liked the cactus pear taste and came out a very vibrant pink color. This week I did fig with agave and it carbonated very well in addition to having a delicious flavor.
  14. Made some ramen the other night that was fantastically easy and delicious: "30 Minute Thai Peanut Chicken Ramen" on halfbakedharvest.com
  15. I've done hibiscus in the second fermentation but I stay conservative with the first fermentation.
