THERE'S A DIY REVOLUTION HAPPENING. Whether it's "upcycling" old clothes into new fashions or breathing new life into used furniture with a needle and thread and a few coats of paint, creative folks have taken to making their own just about anything. We prefer to focus our crafty efforts on something fun, easy, practical and edible: Snacks. Because honestly, who doesn't love snacks? S N A C K S 1 cup Big Y plain lowfat Greek yogurt 1 8-oz. pkg. Big Y Neufchâtel 1 / 3 less fat cream cheese, softened 3 Tbsp. fresh parsley, finely minced 1 Tbsp. fresh basil, finely minced 2 tsp. fresh dill, finely minced 1½ tsp. fresh lemon juice 1 tsp.

Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight. In a medium bowl, combine flour and salt. Make a well in the center and pour in the water and oil; stir to combine and until dough comes together. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead a couple of times. Split dough into three and wrap each in plastic wrap. Let chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside. Place a sheet of parchment paper on a work surface; sprinkle lightly with flour. Using one dough ball at a time, roll out into a 1 ⁄ 8 -inch-thick rectangular shape, adding more flour as needed to prevent the dough from sticking. With a sharp knife, cut dough into thick strips; place on prepared baking sheets and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake, 1 sheet at a time, for 15 to 20 minutes or until crackers are golden brown, watching carefully so they do not burn. Remove from oven and let cool.
