    I remember hearing the ice cream truck jangle down the street and enjoying those really expensive, deliciously chewy, ice cream sandwiches.&nbsp; The kind I still see in frozen treat displays at convenient stores. Yeah convientiently placed there for my craving of tasty goodness.&nbsp; Well, I found a great recipe in a <a href="http://www.marthastewart.com/recipe/gingersnap-ice-cream-sandwiches">Martha Stewart magazine from 2008</a>.&nbsp; yeah, yeah, Martha Stewart. <br />
    <br />
    This recipe is for ginger cookies filled with butter-pecan ice cream.&nbsp; Now I like butter-pecan ice cream but haven't actually spent the money on it yet and put whatever ice cream i have in the freezer.&nbsp; If I don't have ice cream, these are amazing cookies anyway.&nbsp; My boyfriend can be a picky sweets eater, but not with these.&nbsp; Especially if the ground ginger is replaced with fresh grated ginger.&nbsp;&nbsp; These cookies freeze beautifully and could last a good amount of time I bet. Each bite is not frosty but chewy.<br />
    <br />
    I just have to share. I make double and triple recipes that turn out great.<br />
    <br />
    GINGERSNAP ICE CREAM SANDWICHES<br />
    <br />
    2 ounces (4 TB) unsalted butter, softened<br />
    1/4 cup granulated sugar<br />
    2 TB unsulfured molasses<br />
    1 large egg yolk<br />
    3/4 cup all-purpose flour<br />
    1/4 teaspoon baking soda<br />
    1/2 tsp coarse salt<br />
    1 tsp ground ginger (or 6tsp fresh grated ginger root)<br />
    1/4 tsp ground allspice<br />
    3 TB sanding sugar, for sprinkling (I roll cookies in granulated sugar)<br />
    1 pint butter-pecan ice cream, softened slightly<br />
    <br />
    Preheat oven to 350F.<br />
    Cream butter, granulated sugar, and molasses until fluffy. Beat in yolk.<br />
    Whisk flour, baking soda, salt, and spices in a small bowl.<br />
    Fold in butter mixture 1/3 at a time.<br />
    Roll dough into eight 11/2-inch balls, spacing them 2 inches apart on parchment lined baking sheets.<br />
    *I do not use parchment paper, just place straight on cookie sheets <br />
    Press to form 3-inch disks. Sprinkle with sanding sugar.<br />
    *I roll the 11/2-inch dough balls in granulated sugar instead if sprinkling.)<br />
    Bake, rotating halfway through, until golden around edges, 11 to 13 mintues.<br />
    Transfer cookies to a wire rack, and let cool.<br />
    Scoop ice cream onto 4 cookies and top with a second cookie.<br />
    Freeze until firm. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.<br />
    <br />
    Have fun grating ginger root! :p

    The yeast, not doing anything. Cleaned out the jar, restarted with warm water and more than a few granules of yeast and slow feeding (every 12hrs when i remember) white granulated sugar. Looks like a milky floating film for now...<br />
    <br />
    Instead, I tried something similar. <i>Maybe</i> it's similar, bacteria right?&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Probiotics!<br />
    <br />
    The recipe I actually copied to text seems to be <br />
    <a href="http://www.allfreecrafts.com/giftinajar/homemade-yogurt.shtml">Homemade Yoghurt by Crystal Miller</a><br />
    <br />
    When I searched google for "I raise Nubian goats and use my own goat milk" I found it...<br />
    <br />
    The recipe was based on 8 cups of milk with 1/2 cup of starter bacteria.<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    <br />
    I read the amount of milk makes the same amount of yogurt and I wanted to use tasty Greek yogurt. My <a href="http://www.chobani.com/">Chobani Greek yogurt</a> container holds 32oz so I made the 4cups and used 1/4 starter. <br />
    <br />
    Now the yogurt tastes like Greek yogurt no doubt; but is thin, watery almost. Author Miller also suggests powdered milk "this is optional but will make a thicker yogurt". I am reluctant to try this because: again it cost money to buy anything. So I reheated it to 110 (twice), even added more yogurt. Now it is even more bitter, a perfect amount to taste actually, but no thicker.<br />
    <br />
    I'll figure it out.<br />
    <br />
    Actually I did figure it out.&nbsp; When left to settle in the fridge and with fast cooling the yogurt thickened. yay!<br />
    <br />
    <a href="http://www.makeyourownyogurt.com/">MakeYourOwnYogurt.com</a><br />
    <br />
    Measure milk per container(s). <br />
    Bring milk to 185F. <br />
    Cool to 110F. [Cultures are inactive below 95F and die above 120F.]<br />
    Add pre-maid yogurt as a bacteria starter. <br />
    Incubate in a preheated place for 7+ hours: depending on preference of bacteria amount and intensity. <br />
    Flavour to preference, ;) Refrigerate and enjoy.<br />
    -This growth process produces some type of gas expansion and does not allow for a tight fitting lid, so do not.

    This morning I woke up and decided it is time to grow my own yeast. Why? Because I can. So I searched my two favorite sources: teachers websites and public databases of scientific articles.<br />
    <br />
    From ACS Publications (which I've actually never used)<br />
    <a href="http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/ie50527a051"><br />
    Aeration Studies on Propagation of Baker's Yeast</a><br />
    William D. Maxon, Marvin J. Johnson<br />
    Ind. Eng. Chem., 1953, 45 (11), pp 2554&#8211;2560<br />
    <br />
    "1. The organism grows well on a completely synthetic medium with glucose as the sole source of carbon.<br />
    2. The over-all metabolism of the organism is simple.&nbsp; The only major products are yeast cells, ethanol, and carbon dioxide.<br />
    3. The process requires air. The absence of air causes an easily measured change in metabolism, the increased rate of formation of ethanol.<br />
    4. The organism is enzymatically stable and is relatively easy to keep free of contaminating microorganisms."<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    <a href="http://www.disknet.com/indiana_biolab/b021.htm"><br />
    Your First Microbiology Experiment Revision #3 </a> <br />
    Harold Eddleman, 1998, Indiana Biolab, Palmyra IN<br />
    <br />
    This gave me information on medium, feed, sterilization and more. This Doctor and President of this particular biology lab also seems to have many linking sites for biology classes/studies.<br />
    <br />
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_WM14SYIwqMI/TQjm-p9dgyI/AAAAAAAAAQA/ifTWS4UqpWU/s1600/yeastCulture.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="640" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_WM14SYIwqMI/TQjm-p9dgyI/AAAAAAAAAQA/ifTWS4UqpWU/s640/yeastCulture.JPG" width="426" /></a></div><br />
    No need to sterilize because the yeast kills other bacteria or interferes with other organism growth. <br />
    <br />
    Temperatures should be relatively high which anyone who has watched bread rise knows.&nbsp; My house is not usually warm because I mainly heat with wood and let it dwindle at night. But I'll give it a try anyway by placing it in the highest corner cabinet of my kitchen where the temp currently read 69F.<br />
    <br />
    <b>Yeast&nbsp; Culture</b>&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;Fleishmann's Active Dry Yeast Ingredients: yeast, sorbitan monostearate. (I'll find out what that is later)<br />
    <b>Medium</b>&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Well water<br />
    <b>Food</b>&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp; Great Value Light Corn Syrup Ingredients: light corn syrup, water, high fructose corn syrup (that is really what I want), salt, vanilla<br />
    <b>Container</b>&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp; Glass peanut butter jar with lid ajar for aerobic needs<br />
    <b>Temperature</b> &nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;a range of 50F-80F<br />
    <br />
    I wander whether the extra ingredients in the corn syrup; vanilla especially, will change the flavor of the yeast.&nbsp; If the yeast does not grow I may have to find a medium that contains extra elements it may need, such as nitrogen. Or find a warmer spot. <br />
    <br />
    Will this be a liquid yeast? How do I make dry yeast?

    This morning I woke up to that painful sound of a screaching rabbit.

    I believe what luered this fox here is the fact that I recently released a rabbit into the yard which was injured by another rabbit.&nbsp; The rabbit has stayed close by this week and left his scent everywhere. <br />
    <br />
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_WM14SYIwqMI/TQIsM5q-6aI/AAAAAAAAAPw/iSI-p-Zr1Tc/s1600/IMG_2978.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="426" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_WM14SYIwqMI/TQIsM5q-6aI/AAAAAAAAAPw/iSI-p-Zr1Tc/s640/IMG_2978.JPG" width="640" /></a></div>Foxy tried to attack a rabbit in a cage on the ground and was not amused.&nbsp; He/she sat briefly to ponder why I would wrap his meal in such a device.<br />
    <br />
    <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_WM14SYIwqMI/TQIs3JOFQLI/AAAAAAAAAP4/pPMunlVZC2A/s1600/IMG_3029.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="426" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_WM14SYIwqMI/TQIs3JOFQLI/AAAAAAAAAP4/pPMunlVZC2A/s640/IMG_3029.JPG" width="640" /></a></div>He then came over to the house to look inside and check out our woodshed where my recently released rabbit has been hanging around.<br />
