Ingredients

1 cup yogurt cheese (directions to make below)
1 cup milk
2 tsp lemon juice
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup oatmeal, muesli or rolled oats whatever you care to use
1 peeled/cored shredded apple
1 cup strawberries, diced
1 cup blueberries
1 cup raspberries

Directions

Directions for Yogurt Cheese:

Use an all natural, Balkan style yogurt for this. I use Astro Balkan Style Yogurt in Canada, not sure what variety is available in the States.

Put a strainer into another bowl. Take the entire container (2 cups ish) of yogurt and put into the strainer (you can use cheesecloth to make sure the yogurt doesn’t go through the holes if they are big)… allow the yogurt to sit at room temp for at least 2 hours. When it is done you will notice almost 2 cups of whey in the bowl! The yogurt will now be a lot thicker.

Directions Cont’d:

Talk the oatmeal, sugar, lemon juice & milk and mix in a small bowl.
Mash half of the strawberries. Combined everything in one big bowl. Cover and put in the fridge for at least an hour prior to eating. This will stay good for up to 5 days in the fridge. If it lasts that long. 😉

Obviously you can change this recipe up to your taste. The main components are the yogurt cheese, oatmeal & fruit. Enjoy!!

WHY RUBS ARE BETTER THAN MARINADES

Build Your Own Barbecue
When you’re cooking or grilling meat, rubs beat out marinades every time. We’ll tell you why — and give you four delicious, easy-to-make rub recipes

Ever eat a marinated rib? Nope. Brisket? Nope. Steak? Nope. You know why? Because marinades are for n00bz. Real Zen master grill pros use rubs.

If you cut meat super thin (like beef for fajitas) a marinade may be able to work its way into the muscle fibers. If you poke it full of holes, then the marinade can seep into the vacant spaces and add flavor. But meats are already about 70 percent water, leaving little room for marinades. This means that no matter what double-secret mixture you dunk your chicken in, unless you alter it in a significant physical way, the best a marinade will do is transmit a little flavor to the meat’s surface.

Plus, the acids in many soaks can degrade the flesh and cause mushiness. The moisture on the surface of the meat will also steam during cooking, and steam is the archenemy of crispiness. Sugary or oily marinades will trickle off the protein and onto the flames, causing flare-ups and charring.

And finally, you’ll be tempted to re-dunk your cooked food into the original marinade. In other words, the same marinade that had raw meat soaking in it. In other words, the very thought of it makes our sphincters clinch.

So screw marinades. Rubs are the rub! A dry rub — or even a hybrid rub/marinade called a wet rub — will transmit more tasty nuances than a marinade, and will cling better to the meat, reducing the risk of flare ups and delivering more punch on the plate. Here are four concoctions that’ll have you rubbing one out from now on.

BASIC BBQ RUB
This is what guys named Tallahassee Lou rub on ribs before smoking them for 30 straight hours. The basic rub is a broad-spectrum flavor enhancer that goes great on chicken, pork, beef, or even in a little pot of beans if you have one. The basic recipe here cries out for you to add a signature seasoning. Our suggestions include a dash of unsweetened cocoa, grated garlic, a spoonful of wasabi, or a shot of bourbon or smoky mescal.

Equal parts:
Brown sugar
Sweet paprika
Black pepper
Coarse salt

Add to taste, but in small amounts:
Garlic powder
Onion powder
Celery seed
Cayenne pepper

Another nice thing about rubs is that they last as long as the spices within them. You can make the basic rub in whatever quantity you wish, then keep it in an airtight container for later use.
