have you ever wanted to try something.
and researched it.
and researched it some more.
got a bee in your bonnet
and then just felt too inadequate to do it?

thats how i was.

i wanted to make my own yogurt.
it was supposedly simple.
and easy.
and looked simple AND easy.
and i REALLY wanted to try it.
for some reason i just never did..

until sunday!

and it was AWESOME!!
the savings alone are worth it! and its super delicious.
the only downfall?

we were out of granola.

so, i made some.. meh..
no biggie.
and it is AWESOME too..

so. seriously. try it. its worth it.

instructions and recipe (if you can call it that) found here.. isn't sheena awesome.

and here's my granola recipe

Cranberry Pecan Granola
5 c. rolled oats
(i use the 7 grain mix from Petersons bosch. they might have something similar at kitchen kneads, etc. its in the bulk section.)
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. wheat germ
1/2 c. sunflower seeds
1 tsp cinnamon
1 c. chopped pecans
1/4 c. flax seed (ground)
1/2 c. honey (heated)
1/3 c. canola oil
3/4 c. margarine (melted)
1 tsp vanilla

mix dry ingredients.

mix wet ingredients.

mix together til coated.
add craisins (i just add as many as i think i want.. maybe 2 cups?)
spread onto cookie sheet.
bake 225 for 1.5 - 2 hours stirring once or twice.

serve with your new delicious and tasty yogurt.

* be careful not to overbake.
when you take it out of the oven it will still be wet, but as it dries it gets crunchy like granola.
if you overbake hoping to make it dry, it will just taste burnt.
not that i would know.

**edited: since originally writing this post and saving it until i wasnt lazy enough to upload the photos, i have made 2 more batches of yogurt. its awesome**
