Homemade yogurt with maple syrup

I had an issue with too many plastic containers going to the recycling bin everyday because we love to eat yogurt. I am also very health conscious and I do put maple syrup on my yogurt to sweeten it already. Then a friend at work told me how easy it was to make my own homemade yogurt...and boy is it easy AND DELICIOUSSSSSSSSS.
So here is my recipe and you can find many other ideas on the web.
You need: milk, plain yogurt with active bacteria, pot, kitchen thermometer and a Slow cooker.
I put my milk I use 1% in a pot and bring it slowly to a boil at 185 degree.

Ice on Whyte festival

This coming week-end is the last one of a wonderful festival.
We had such a great time last week-end and have been looking forward to this all week.
The weather is beautiful, people are happy.So nice to see parents and grandparents and their little ones smiling and having fun.
The ice sculptures are just sooooo impressive. And the volunteers, oh my god these people have been there all week through some very cold weather and they are still going  with big smile on their faces. All volunteers make sure to stop by our tent this week end for some cotton candy and maple taffy on snow.
