Preferably plain, preferably low fat, and preferably from Kroger. The yogurt is for an elderly family member, and the plan is to add fresh fruit. For bonus points, any suggestions for a natural fiber supplement to mix in would also be beneficial. I've heard flax seed is used for that purpose, though other/better suggestions would be appreciated.

I bought 2 pounds (the smallest size I could find) of plain whole milk yogurt, not realizing that there was an almost-empty container in the fridge. So now I have all this yogurt with a best-by date of August 5. What are your favorite ways to use it? I'm especially interested in vegetarian main dishes (bonus points for using CSA-type veggies), but would also like ways to pair it with chicken or fish.

I was making yogurt, but forgot that I was doing it. Instead of heating the milk to 180, I heated it to boiling. And then...left it there for a while. I have almost a gallon of freshly boiled milk, and can't stand to throw it away. What on earth can I do with it? [more inside]

I'm on a course of antibiotics, so I'd like to begin re-colonizing myself with some helpful gut flora. Totally willing to get whatever from wherever; there are Whole Foods and various hippie stores (no slight intended) around where I can purchase food or pills, if I need something not available at a mainstream big box retailer or grocery store.

I like to marinate chicken thighs in yogurt before throwing them in the broiler. But a lot of the yogurt marinade sticks to the aluminum foil when I flip them and again when I take them out altogether. I'm losing all that tasty seasoning! Any suggestions? [more inside]

Instead of buying individual yogurt cups in artificial dessert case flavors, I buy a large container of greek yogurt once a week and make parfaits in these containers
for a grab&go breakfast. I need more ideas for delicious things to mix into plain yogurt. [more inside]

If roughly one hour lapses between the time I remove a container of yogurt from the refrigerated case at Whole Foods, to when I place it inside my fridge at home, does that temperature change kill off most of the live & active bacterial cultures? If I leave the container in the fridge unopened for a few more days, will they repopulate the container? Also, if acidophilus are "acid loving" bacteria, should I be eating yogurt after a big meal, instead of on an empty stomach?

Is there any use for my yogurt maker
other than making yogurt? Or do I just keep the 8 plastic cups with lids and throw out the heating unit?

I just read a webpage indicating that due to the way the govt makes food mfgrs calulate ingredients in their products, the amount of carbs in yogurt is overstated. Much of the lactose in the milk used to make it is converted to lactic acid, but remains in the carb count in the nutrition facts on the carton. I understood the fermentation process before, but was not aware of the label being misleading. Could anyone point me to research or a definitive source showing that this is true? Thanks.

When I lived in France, I used to make a super easy, delicious cake for the kids that involved using a container of yogurt and then measuring all the other ingredients using that container of yogurt. I've totally forgotten how to make this now. Anyone know what I'm talking about or where to find a recipe?

Everywhere I look there's a brand new little self-serve yogurt place with a different but strangely similar name. Pinkberry. Red Mango. Yogurt Circle. Yocup. Sogreen. Freshberry. Yogen Fruz. Tuttimelon. Nubi. One can expect a certain degree of copycatism with food trends, but it seems that there must have been some sort of catalyst for so many of these places to spring up so quickly with such similar products and business models at the same time. What brought this on?

I recently purchased several boxes of magazines at a garage sale, including copies of a German magazine called "Lisa." It's a typical "woman's magazine" (i.e. fashion, celebrity news, recipes, human interest stories). It's been fun to peruse through it since we don't get much exposure to "foreign" stuff here in the sticks, and one of the recipes caught my eye: Luftige Joghurt-Aprikosen-Torte. [more inside]

For those of you that make own yogurt, do you have a favorite yogurt maker? Which work best? Favorite recipes? Tips? Is it better to get a single, quart jobbie, or is it better to get the one with the individual containers?
I'd like to start making my own yogurt, but I want to make it as easy as possible.

My favorite kind of bread is Sourdough (it's Californian, dude!), and I know I should be eating something more wholegrainhighfiberlowcarbwhatever. But I'm curious... if the cultures in yogurt are healthy for you, does the culture that makes sourdough sour have any nutrition benefits over plain white bread? And does Sourdough really take 2-3X as long to get stale and moldy than other bread, or that just me?
Or can anybody reccommend a best-tasing Whole Wheat Sourdough?
