How to Make Homemade Yogurt

How to Make Homemade Yogurt

Yogurt is a staple around our house – vanilla yogurt is one of the picky child’s favorite foods, and I’m a big fan of thick and creamy plain Greek yogurt. Yogurt is one of those foods that’s quite easy to make at home, but rarely attempted.  You don’t need a yogurt maker (although I think I spent maybe $10 on mine, and it makes it even easier, so I recommend it).  It does take a lit…

How to Make Tamales

How to Make Tamales

Hi, I’m Emily! I’ve been inspired by Foodwhirl’s recipes so far, and am excited to contribute to it! My husband and I made tamales for Memorial Day, so I thought it would be a great recipe to share. We make tamales about once a year. They’re certainly time consuming, but making 6 dozen is as easy as making 12, so it’s a great meal to make and then freeze. Tamales are also a great p…

I’ve never really been a big smoothie fan. It just seemed like a quick way to drink a whole bunch of calories, and i’m not really into sweet drinks. But I’m doing a Fall fitness challenge this month at FitWit, and I’m trying to eat healthy and get all my fruits and veggies in. So I figured why not come up with a good smoothie that gets your veggies in, with minimal fruit and extra sugar, a…
