Apparently mother nature wants to keep us at home. We’ve received her message loud and clear. Just this weekend, Los Angeles turned into a walk-in sauna with temperatures reaching a blistering 121°F/50°C in Woodland Hills. Even if we wanted to step outside during this record-breaking heatwave (we didn’t), we would need hi-tech space suits to keep our skin from spontaneously bursting into flames. And if these weren’t enough reasons to keep us inside, enter the recent wildfires spreading across the state of California, coating our blue skies in an unhealthy orange haze, complete with smoky air and falling ashes. Just when you thought 2020 couldn’t dip any lower… but let’s all take a deep breath. The Husbands are here to help, and today we are sharing something that will ease your mind and cool your scorched soul. Please welcome your new summer savior… Iced Vegan Chai Latte.

We’ve all been there before. You have an early morning, you probably shouldn’t have said yes to that third cocktail last night, you have barely any time to get ready before rushing out the door, you’re hungry but there’s no time to whip up our winter shakshuka (although you could have pulled it off if you hadn’t hit that snooze button 6 times), and you need something nutritious that will give you the energy to last until lunchtime. Have no fear, the Husbands are here, and we’ve got your frantic backs! You may have gotten off to a rough start, but we have something to fix all of this – introducing our delicious Tart Cherry Vanilla Swirl Smoothie.

kauai recap: a week in paradise

Every time we visit Kauai, we seriously consider moving there. Don’t get us wrong, we love our house and garden here in Eagle Rock, but there’s something enchanting about the idea of living in the tropics—just steps away from the beach, with ocean breezes blowing through our hair as we sip coconuts, eat fresh pineapples, and watch the waves all day. We’ve been home for just over a week and already dreaming about our next trip.

passion colada

Happy Labor Day everyone! Today we are heading to a barbecue and enjoying these glorious cooler temperatures that have arrived in southern California just in time for the holiday weekend. But before we go, we had to share a delicious tropical cocktail for all your last-minute party-planning needs, a refreshing twist on the piña colada. It is incredibly easy to make and literally takes just thirty seconds in the blender. Here, light rum is mixed with cream of coconut, pineapple juice, passion fruit puree, freshly squeezed lime juice, and blended with ice to make a creamy and refreshing beverage inspired by the Puerto Rican classic. Garnished with a strawberry, a slice of pineapple, and a colorful paper umbrella, the only labor you’ll need to do today is print out this recipe and plug in your blender!
