Check out Katie's post on Homemade Yogurt Recipes (So You Can Eat It All the Time), which includes all of my suggestions for how we use yogurt in our house:

When I started making my own yogurt, I quickly learned that the key to making yogurt from my own starter is to make a lot of yogurt. If I make a quart of yogurt a week, my yogurt always turns out great. If I make it every three or four days, even better. But if I go too long between batches of yogurt, my starter loses its "starting power:" I get runny yogurt, or the yogurt doesn’t set at all.

But unless you loooove yogurt, a bowl of tangy, thick milk with fruit gets old fast. So I’ve come up with lots of creative ways to use up our yogurt so I always have a fresh starter…

If you're not making your own yogurt yet, here's the method I use for making yogurt (though I should update that post to clarify that I make it in a glass jar now rather than the plastic container that came with my yogurt maker because of the problems with heating foods in plastic).

Thanks for sharing!
I was wondering what kind of yogurt maker you have?

It's a Salton, and I think I chose it because it was the cheapest one I could find. I like having a yogurt maker because it's pretty foolproof, but it's not necessary. You can use a thermos, or I think Katie's method uses a cooler. She makes a lot of yogurt though...
