Yogurt! It’s not going to make itself, you know?

I can’t say that yogurt was at the top of my list when I set out on this cheesemaking adventure (oh, sweet mancheeeegooooo….) but I am glad that I tried it. It is fairly simple to make and easy to source the ingredients. Everything can come straight from your happy local grocer.

2009 Blog for Food Campaign

The Oregon Food Bank serves the people of Oregon and Clark County, Washington, and has seen record levels of need over the past year. The best thing we can do to help is support the cause with funding. Blog for Food is a campaign running through the month of February 2009 to get food bloggers and lovers of food to donate to the cause. With your contribution the Oregon Food Bank can support over 340 food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters. They provide emergency foods to individuals and families and support the elderly and children. No one should go hungry surrounded by so much bounty. Support the effort by donating funds through the Oregon Food Bank’s online donation system and make a note that you are supporting the “Blog for Food” food drive. You can also send a check to:

Oregon Food Bank
PO. Box 55370
Portland, OR 97238-5370
*mention “Blog for Food” in the check memo

You can also bring donations of food to Saraveza which is serving as a drop-off site for canned goods. Saraveza is located at 1004 N. Killingsworth, in Portland. For more information on what types of foods the Oregon Food Bank is looking for, go to their website. They stress, however, that any foods can be put to good use.

For more information and a list of all the participating bloggers, please check out Pacific Northwest Cheese Project who are the organizers of this drive. Please don’t wait — donate today!
