    I used to have one wayyyy back in the 70's, but lost it on one of the moves. Now I have a new one and I love it. I use dry milk and add a bit of the last batch of yogurt, so now we have plenty of yogurt for smoothies, salad dressings, etc. I'm hooked! Good bacteria in yogurt! Terri

    There is a restaurant near here that makes this awesome garlic sauce that is good on anything - like pitas, chicken, anything. They would not give me the recipe, and i have been working on cracking it. So far, i think it is fresh garlic, yogurt, a touch of olive oil and sprinkle of salt/pepper. really tasty

    So happy for you! Sounds really easy to use. Will you share some of your recipes with us? I'd love a good salad dressing. Plain yogurt seems okay for me, but I don't know what to do with it!

    Hi Alaska...I've toyed with buying one, so would you please tell us what kind you bought? Does the yogurt taste fresher than the store-bought variety? Thanks! Ann

    on the salad dressings. I made one with: plain yogurt, mayo, lemon juice, a pinch of xylitol or honey, and feta cheese. It turned out very well! Sorry, I didn't measure anything...My machine is a Salton and it was hard to find. The company even had stopped making them for awhile...but I found a health food store online that had one on her shelf. I can only make plain yogurt, but then you can add fruit, jam, sweetener, whatever you like. I figure I'm making a quart at a time for about half the cost. The consistency of the yogurt is a bit different than store bought...a little less smooth. The taste can be varied by how long you cook it...longer makes it tangier. Take care everyone!
