Greek Yogurt

I have been making my own yogurt for years (love my yogurt maker) - found this on the web last week and figured - hey if I can make my own greek yogurt cheaper than I can purchase at the store - I'll give it a try. YUMI

Make your own Greek yogurt: Line a sieve with a coffee filter and set it over a bowl. Place 4 cups plain whole-milk yogurt in the filter and refrigerate for 12 hours (you'll get about 2 cups thick yogurt). Divide among bowls; top with honey, dried fruit or as I do - I always have a bag of frozen fruit - sometimes I take about 1/2 cup out and put into my plain yogurt.

Morning danish

First time I ever had this was when I was in high school and mom was following a "diet" my aunt was on in Rochester, NY (the diet workshop) and I think it's something that WW also follows.

1 slice bread
1/2 c. cottage cheese
into the cottage cheese mix a packet of sweetner, 1/2 tsp vanilla and cinnamon to taste.

spread the cottage cheese mixture over the bread and place in the oven under the broiler for no more than 5 minutes.

With a side of fresh fruit - it's a nice change for breakfast !
