fro yo!!!

as of late, for whatever reason,
i've become rather obsessed with frozen treats.
and even though it fits into the category of
we decided to get an ice cream maker.

{other things that fall into that category are bread makers,
fondue pots (unless vintage), and juicers.}

based on a combo of amazon reviews and expert recommendations,
we picked this one from cuisinart.
we're very lucky toosince they carry it at crate & barrel
and we were able to use a gift card from our wedding.

there are bazillions of great recipes on the interwebs you guys.
plus, i won this book {spice dreams} from readymade magazine,
so, it was very hard to decide where to narrow down which
one would kick off my frozen treat journey.

now, if you've had pinkberry {or as it's called in my town; swirlberry}
you may understand why i was drawn to this recipe.
when you claim your recipe rivals pinkberry...
i used greek yogurt and halved the sugar.
i don't love sweet things (prefer savory)
BUT in hindsight it was unnecessary.
my yogurt turned out absolutely amazing
and i loved the tart flave 
but using the rest of the sugar
would not have been too sweet.
next time i'm going full sugar.
we put strawberries and sliced almonds on top of ours.
sofa king good.

vanilla frozen yogurt recipe
3 cups greek-style yogurt
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

mix together the yogurt, sugar, and vanilla.
stir until the sugar is completely dissolved.
refrigerate 1 hour.
freeze in your ice cream maker according to manufacturer instructions.

what a treat!

on a side note, yesterday i was so hungry when i got home from work...
before even going inside...
i grabbed a tomato hanging from the vine
and ate it in the driveway.
also, i wasn't wearing any shoes because
sometimes i like to drive barefoot.
as i was doing this
i came to the conclusion
that i will be a great embarrassment
to my future children
