Recipes

Kombucha Soda Muffins

Kombucha Soda MuffinsI got a box of Kombucha once, and though I like kombucha, I could not drink it fast enough. So I found this recipe which I believe is kind of based on Irish Soda bread, but used the Kombucha. It is remarkable and vegan. The original recipe calls for honey or agave, but I use molasses as it is my go-to sweetener due to its earthy taste and high minerals content (potassium, iron, and magnesium). Also you can use butter or oil.

He had parvo so we spent thousands of dollars to save him, but we are kinda questioning if the shelter switched the dogs up because his papers said Golden Retriever and not Pit Bull.

Finch Laid Eggs in Empty Food BowlMy finches laid 2 eggs a week ago in their wood nest and then started laying eggs in an empty food dish. Now there are 5 eggs in it. It is pretty shallow though and I am worrying it won't be big enough if they hatch. The male is sitting on them almost all the time. Do I need to move them to larger nest?

How Long Should I Wait Before Re-dying My Hair?I dyed my hair blonde within the last 24 hours and the plan is to re-dye it blue soon. So the blonde dye was to act as bleach so the blue would show up better. I dislike how my hair looks with the blonde color as it is not even and was only acting as a lightener to make my hair a lighter color so the other dye will show better. How long should I wait until I re-dye my hair blue?

Hatching Abandoned Duck EggsAround April 18 my sister found a duck and 13 eggs on our boat, that was being sold. May 10 and we set up a whole new nest with shelter and everything, Benedict (the mother duck haha) needed. Everyday I've checked on the nest and she is nowhere to be seen. So it's now 4 days later and she hasn't returned at all and only had 6 eggs left. I decided to hatch the eggs myself. Is it too late?

Baby Finches DyingI have five finches, 2 are in one cage 3 are in another cage. One pair have had 6 eggs for the last month, but the eggs are not hatching. On the other hand where there are 3 birds, they have 11 eggs and 7 hatched, but every time when I saw a little one inside, in the next few hours it was dead and lying down in the nest. All 7 died the same way.
