Granny's Recipe Box: Labneh

Can you call it a recipe if it only involves 2 ingredients? Yes. Yes, you can. Let me introduce you to my newest obsession, 



*1 container of Greek Yogurt

*A pinch of Kosher Salt 

(you definitely don't need a container of salt that is this big!)


*2 large bowls



*Pour the container of greek yogurt into one of your bowls

*Add the pinch of Kosher Salt


*Place your strainer over the second bowl

*Place the cheesecloth into the strainer

*Pour the yogurt/salt mixture onto the cheesecloth

*Cover with the edges of the cheesecloth

*Refrigerate for 24 hours, leaving the cheesecloth in the strainer and the strainer on top of the bowl. This way you can drain the water from the yogurt. 

That's all folk! No seriously, that's all there is to it! You can enjoy labneh in a savory or sweet way. But I love it on top of fruit crumble with honey. Woohoo! 10/10 in ease and taste! 

One day I will make my own yogurt and do part 2 of this post. But if you are looking for an easy recipe that takes 2 ingredients, 10 seconds of prep, and tastes amazing this is it!

I'm going to explore knitwear that is continuously overlooked because a much more iconic item of knitwear steals the show. Maybe this will inspire you to take a second look at these movies. Each of these movies is going to get their own posts eventually. But, those posts will most likely focus on the other more popular knits. So this is a moment for the underdogs to shine!

The Knitwear of Emily In Paris

G oing into Emily In Paris, I assumed that it was going to be similar to shows like Sex and The City and Gossip Girl but I couldn't have been more wrong.  Emily in Paris is the story of a gallery girl named Camille who has a fateful run-in with social media marketer Emily Cooper. Emily has just recently moved to Paris. Despite giving off a friendly first impression, Emily has a dark motive, and she slowly weasels her way into Camille's life. By the end of the season, Emily has found a way to cheapen Camille's family Champagne business, slept with Camille's boyfriend, and also her 17-year-old brother. And for some reason, no one is talking about the two biggest mysteries of the series. One, what happened to the former social media manager Patricia who was the only person to see Emily for who she is. And two, Emily's wardrobe is MASSIVE, but we only see her moving in a few suitcases to her apartment at the beginning of the show. And in the last episode, we learn that
