Pineapple veggie chicken skewers with spicy peanut butter sauce

Pineapple chicken skewers  1 of 1 2

Hi guys! How’s your day going? Hope it’s been a great one so far :)

I’m fully convinced that plants flourish out here. My succulent garden is growing like crazy, I’ve managed to keep all of our herbs “alive” for the first full summer (ok, so the cilantro is clinging the walls of death right now). Also the first time ever, we have a jalapeño! He has a salsa destiny ahead of him.

Another thing: the kombucha! A few people have asked if I was still brewing kombucha, and it’s still going strong after the interesting bottle of scoby the farmer’s market kombucha lady gave me. My kombuchas batches did fairly well in Tucson, but I think I’ve really gotten the hang of it. It’s by far the best ‘buch we’ve brewed at home.



(Orange-ginger from last week)

I’ve had a lot of fun playing with flavor variations and have learned that dried ginger makes it even more fizzy. Please let me know if you have any awesome flavoring ideas! 

Last night, I had some of the home-brew with an awesome and easy summer dinner: pineapple chicken skewers with a spicy peanut butter sauce.

Hi guys! How’s the morning going? Hope you’re having a great day so far! Last night I taught spin, which was a lot of fun. It also felt like an ideal amount of time, because it was the first half of a spin/TRX combo class. (Not able to teach the TRX portion right now.) The […]

Goat cheese, beet and jalapeño flatbread


This is my healthier at-home version of our beloved Bo-Beau Kitchen flatbread: goat cheese, beet and jalapeño. AKA three things you wouldn’t really think to put together. But, it’s so right. The component that helps bring everything together is a sweet onion-tomato spread. To make this, all I did was heat one large diced sweet […]

The best vegan sushi

Vegan sushi rolls using noodles instead of rice, plus a zesty teriyaki dipping sauce.

Whenever I see the fam, I can expect the usual shenanigans. Food and laughter are the main components, with lots of stories, random games, spontaneously passing out on the couch from a food coma, and then repeating. I can also expect that my Uncle E will share some amazing cooking tips or a new recipe […]
