So this question is mostly for Mom, because I know she has made yogurt.

Nicki started her yogurt this morning. I can't wait to hear what she has after her afternoon at the zoo!

I kept the whey and was just reading up about what I can do with it.

Oh gosh, it's the very same in my house! I hoard yogurt coupons and stock up when there are sales. I've always wanted to try making it myself, but my kids don't really like the plain stuff...and I've always thought it looked hard. I saw this method the other day though and she actually makes it sound really easy.

I'd be curious to know how it turns out adding flavors. Could you add fruit too? Please keep me posted!

I buy the large plain yogert and because my husband is diabetic and I am borderline I use agave nector and vanilla, sometimes instead I will put in strawberries or blueberries. You could put almost anything in it. Honey works. I like the nector and cinnamon.

Del likes sugar free preserves like Smuckers or Polaners...

He also likes raisins in his..he says that way he can chew it....that is a man......lol
