Frozen Yogurt, Suspense and a Few Tidbits!

Good Morning!  I'm up to my eyeballs in projects this week so I'll make it quick and get to the good stuff. 

I found an awesome recipe for Homemade Frozen Yogurt at The Do It Yourself Mom.  Please stop by her blog, check out all of her delicious DIY recipes and follow her!  She has so many neat recipes.

Next, I have a SUPER fun and Exciting announcement...But you'll have to wait until Saturday or Sunday!  The suspense is getting to me and I have a seriously hard time keeping a secret.  Right Mom?  Send me an email  to mari_backtonature@yahoo.com  if you'd like to get the announcement before it's officially posted.

Thank you everyone who stopped by and linked up with Sweet Saturday and Healthy Mommy, Healthy Baby.  I had a blast checking out all of the yummy food and fun projects.  I'm super excited to have so many new followers.  If I forgot to follow you back please feel free to let me know.  It's been a bit hectic around here.

Lastly, I'm still sprouting!  I've decided to go with Fenugreek and Broccoli sprouts this time around.  You know how I mentioned that the sprouts can last up to 6 weeks in the fridge?  Well we ate all of ours in 4 days!  Stay tuned!

And now for the recipe!

Homemade Caramel Pear Frozen Yogurt

1 large or 2 small pears finely diced
1/2 cup sugar (divided)
3 cups plain yogurt (homemade works great!)

After you finely diced the pears, put them in a small saucepan with 1/4 cup of sugar. Saute over low heat to caramelize the sugar. It may take a while to cook out the excess liquid from the pear to allow the sugar to thicken and caramelize.
Remove from heat, and allow the caramelized pear to cool.
Stir 1/4 cup of sugar into the yogurt.
Add the cooled pear pieces and stir to distribute evenly.
Freeze in an ice cream freezer, or follow these instructions to freeze in your regular freezer.

This recipe make about 1 quart or liter of frozen yogurt.
