Making Yogurt in a Crock Pot

Making Yogurt in a Crock Pot
I have been feeding my boys yogurt for their breakfast lately. I have decided that they need some probiotics in their system to keep them healthy or should I say get them healthy; they have been sick for too long in my opinion. I set out to buy organic yogurt that contained all the good probiotics. However, organic yogurt is expensive! Even in bulk it is pricey. Naturally, I started thinking about making it myself.

Yes, This is my Natural Color!

Yes, This is my Natural Color! - Reasons to not dye your hair
Growing up, I had dark blonde hair, as I entered my teenage years it changed to a light brown. Horrified at the thought of not being a blonde, I started dying my hair. If I remember correctly, my first hair dye was done at age twelve. I continued on my blonde cycle for about a decade and then finally realized that keeping up with the roots was not worth my time and money. Thus, I switched to dying my hair brown. I was not happy with my natural shade of brunette and kept on dying my hair.

Pistachio Product: Klean Kanteen


Desiring a healthier alternative to plastic water bottles and plastic sippy cups, my family has switched to Klean Kanteens. These lovely water bottles are stainless steel. There are no worries about BPA at all because all you have is stainless steel. The caps and sippy cup attachments are made out of plastic but they are BPA-Free.
