What a fun contest!

I love Stonyfield Farm Yogurt! In fact, back “in the day,” I worked for a PR firm in Boston assigned with the task of designing Stonyfield’s first carton. This was right around the time the company started up and was going national.
As for my recipe, here is a favorite for Mom’s Mango Smoothie featuring low-fat vanilla yogurt.

A great event! I love to cook and bake with yogurt…

Oh wow. This is a freaking cool contest. I’ll have to dig through my past posts to see if I have any yogurt recipes!

Okay, here’s one:

Unfortunately, the pictures SUCK because I had a crappy camera back then! :-(

What a great contest! We are huge Stonyfield Fans!! You go girl!

This is my favorite way to use yogurt, make thick salad dressings. Its flavorful, low calorie and healthy. I love to mix mustard, honey and vinegar into low fat yogurt, and put it on top of a chopped salad.

Oikos has become a staple in my refrigerator in the past few months- I can’t get enough of it! Great contest!

I made a zucchini sauce to go on a zucchini pizza- the greek yogurt added the creaminess to the sauce I was looking for.

14 Marla August 16, 2010 at 5:04 am

Faith, that cake does have a long name, but those ingredients sound amazing!! Glad you got the Golden Door Cooks at Home cookbook & that you love it. Can’t wait to see your creations.

Marla…I pretty much use yogurt on a daily basis…and always looking for more recipes. Therefore…I’ll be standing by to get a good glimpse at what comes up.

Too bad the contest isn’t open to Canadians.
In the meantime…I do want to wish everyone good luck ;o)

Ciao for now,


19 Georgia @ The Comfort of Cooking August 16, 2010 at 8:09 pm

Good luck to everyone who entered!
