Since we’ve already established that I have no mind of my own, I decided I needed to get some Fage Yogurt before every blogger in the country caused a shortage and I was left licking up the remains of a cracked container on the floor of the dairy aisle in the whole foods supermarket.
I bought both the 0% and the 2% variety to compare tastes. I tried the yogurt in several different recipes. I ate it raw just to get a taste of it. I mixed it with some blueberries as a snack. I put it on some sliced peaches with cinnamon like Jen did. I also tried Kalyn’s [...]
