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!

Upon graduating college, the first project I thought I would create was a new collection, or even a garment for myself. Instead, I began patterning on my studio floor, creating a pattern for my first quilt - a log cabin to be exact. In the spate of freelance jobs juggled with full-time work, the quilt got shelved. Over several years I designed and created several collections, lots of garments for myself, but eventually hung up my idea of creating the perfect log cabin design.  It wasn’t until years later that I began reconsidering quilting. At 75, my grandmother began (and completed!) her first quilt and gave it to me. Obviously inspired and with an array of cottons I had stashed, I began conceiving my new quilt design. I had plenty of blues, and as someone who

Top 10 Forgotten Knits in Memorable Movies

W hen you think of each of these movies chances are these are not the sweaters that pop into your head. But they should be! 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.
