You may just even want to try your hand at making your own Greek yogurt from scratch. SpicieFoodie shows it can be easy (and beautiful) in the blog post, How To Make Homemade Greek Yogurt. Nice photog skills!

While many may think of Greek yogurt as an obvious breakfast item, canellavita took it to a new high in beautiful breakfast form with these Carrot Cake Pancakes. Extremely moist, fluffy pancakes with the warm and spicy aromas of carrot cake topped with a delicious Greek yogurt cream cheese glaze.
