I feel like Jared and I are a blogging movie waiting to happen. Over the brief months of 2016, I've had an opportunity to experience some of the most profound personal growth in my life.

Have you ever thought about making your own homemade Cream Cheese? I have good news. It's easy to make! So easy in fact that once you make it you’ll probably make it all the time.

1 Medium Carrot, Juilenned
1 Large Daikon, Juilenned
1 Teaspoon Salt
2 Teaspoon Sugar
1 Cup White Vinegar
1/4 Cup Rice Vinegar
1/4 Cup Sugar
1 Lime Sliced
In a medium sized mixing bowl add in carrots, daikon, salt, and 2 teaspoon of sugar and mix together for 3-5 min. You'll begin to see liquid pooling at the bottom of the bowl this is a good thing as this will keep the vegetables crisp. Rinse and strain the carrots and Daikon.
In the same bowl you just used mix together sugar and vinegars until the sugar is completely dissolved. Place the lime slices into sugar vinegar mixture as well as the carrots and daikon. Let them pickle for at least an hour or longer.
