I’m so excited for summer and all the fresh veggies and fruit that come with it. Here is San Diego we get to the taste of summer a little earlier than most places because we get the warm weather a lot sooner. That means raspberries! I love all things berries so it was completely natural […]

Mint Green Sun Tea

If you’ve never had ‘sun tea,’ it’s just tea that’s been brewed by the sun. It’s a great way to make big batches of tea during the summer without turning on the store or using the microwave. My mom used to make huge batches of sun tea almost every day during the summertime when I […]

Mango Kombucha

A lot of flavored Mango Kombucha recipes will tell you to bottle the kombucha right along with the fruit. I don’t like to do that because I don’t want to have to strain the kombucha as I drink it.
