My Rainbow Buys 1/28/12

Those of you that know me, know I don't like coffee, so you might be wondering why I bother getting the coffee creamer, even though it's free. Well, I'll tell you! It goes great in hot chocolate! I wanted a peppermint hot cocoa once, and coffee creamer was 15 cents after coupons, so I bought a peppermint one and tried it in my hot cocoa. It was delicious! So since it was on sale again, I thought I'd try some different ones (plus the peppermint was gone :( ). I'm drinking white chocolate hot cocoa right now with a splash of the Cinnabon one, and I think I like it better than the peppermint! :)

10 Easy Steps for a Healthy, Plain Homemade Yogurt

In this process, I use an Excalibur food dehydrator as the heat source to ferment the milk into yogurt. I have read about other methods such as a cooler filled with containers of hot water that the jars are placed next to, heating pads with the jars wrapped in towels placed on top. I cannot attest to the success of these other methods, but my guess is that the consistent temperature needed is difficult to maintain. There are also yogurt makers that can be purchased that work very well. Good luck, and hopefully you will enjoy your efforts as much as I do mine!
