Yummy Homemade Frozen Yogurt

creamy+blackberry+frozen+yogurtHow refreshing does this look? And it's healthy too! There's an amazing blog called kitchencorners.com and it is loaded with all kinds of fab recipes.

Damaris, a professional recipe developer, food columnist, and design enthusiast, is the creator. Here's what she has to say: "I just moved to Bahia, Brazil for a year with my husband and kids. I post on where food and design come together through our eats, our travels, and the pretty things that enrich our lives."

Sounds pretty great to me! I'm looking forward to following her journey and cooking up some new recipes this summer.
