When I began my "Make Your Own Monday" series, I decided to venture out of my comfort zone a bit and make some things I hadn't really thought of making, like cream cheese, jelly donuts, yogurt, and pizza rolls. Making some of those things might involve some creative repurposing of things I already own, as it would be at cross purposes of "frugal antics" to spend a ton of money in the attempt to save money.
Certainly, I can fry donuts in a dutch oven. I always have cheese cloth on hand and have found that it doesn't hurt to wash and reuse it. I thought perhaps I would make some yogurt in my crockpot. I have seen it done on a few blogs and not having a yogurt maker of my own, I thought it would be the best route to go. Then, out of the blue, I was contacted by company that sells tons of products from cookware and barstools to furniture and other things about doing a review/giveaway of one of their items. I got to choose.
My thoughts immediately turned to this series. I went through my list and decided that we (you and I) need our own yogurt makers. So, sometime soon, I will be posting about my adventure with the Tribest Yolife Yogurt Maker. I will also be hosting a giveaway of the same product. Stay tuned!
