Homemade natural greek yogurt


Learning how to make Greek yogurt at home is easy with this simple recipe. Start by making homemade yogurt; heat the milk, combine it with a little already fermented yoghurt and let it rest in a warm place until the milk turns into yoghurt. Making protein-rich Greek yogurt requires one more step than regular yogurt: Straining the yogurt to thicken it. You can add leftover liquid, also known as whey, to smoothies, or you can use it in place of buttermilk in baking.



Southwestern breakfast quesadilla


Pico de gallo and cheesy eggs make this quick breakfast flavorful and satisfying.



Microwave poached egg breakfast beans


In Costa Rica, this popular breakfast bean dish is called gallo pinto, which means spotted rooster, referring to the dark beans amidst the pale rice. We’re calling for cooked barley here, but you can use any leftover cooked grain you may have on hand.
