this n’ that

I’m making yogurt right now (and eating some too!) and I just have to mention how much I love my yogurt maker. It’s so easy and convenient and it makes great yogurt. I wasn’t able to do much shopping around when I bought mine because there really wasn’t a large selection in my city but I am happy with what I got! Mine is a Donvier in case you were wondering!

Next on my list is to make some frozen yogurt with this stuff. I found a recipe I want to try on David Lebovitz’s blog. Check his blog out if you have some time, it’s great/
I got some more Christmas gifts started today… an apron being one of them! I LOVE the pocket I made on this one.
Tonight I made tortilla pizza’s for dinner. They were pretty good! Nothing fantastic, but definitely quick and easy to make.
This is basically what I did….
In a medium bowl throw together 1/2 cup or so of mayonnaise, 1/4 cup or so of ranch dressing (or something else that suites your fancy), 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, a couple handfuls of chopped pepperoni, a couple handfuls of chopped green peppers, 3-4 chopped mushrooms, 1/2 cup of grated mozzarella. Mix it all together and spread out on a couple of tortillas on a baking sheet. Throw (or place, depending on the size of the mess you want to clean up) into the oven and bake at 400 degrees for about 10-15 mins or until the cheese is bubbly and golden. I’m sure this would work with all kinds of ingredients, or tomato sauce instead of the mayo and ranch, which would of course be much healthier… just depends on the mood you’re in!

    We make tortilla pizzas all the time too – when we’re lazy or don’t want a big meal. They’re so good. Also, frozen yogurt?! That would be amazing. Strawberry. Yum. Maybe someday I’ll get a yogurt maker, when I have a kitchen big enough for all these things! :)

    Do you use old yogurt as the started or do you use like a dry starter mix?

    I have made yogurt before, and creme fraiche (yogurt but more or less with cream instead of milk) but I have read that if you only ever use old yogurt to start then over time it stops working as well. Have you found this? Also do you just make plain or do you put fruit in the bottom?

    I’ve used both old yogurt and a dry starter mix before. Generally speaking old yogurt only works about 7 times before you need to get a new starter. I usually only do about 3 or 4 times and then buy new yogurt to use or else powdered starter. And yes I only ever make plain, that’s how I like it and that’s how my kids like it too!
