Default yogurt recipes?

I've recently discovered the awesomeness of Greek Yogurt... the texture is amazing, and with a bit of honey, it is really good!

I've been experimenting and trying yogurt as substitutions in recipes. Does anyone know of any recipes that use yogurt?

I've seen it in a mashed potato recipes and a recipe for icing.

So far, I've used it as a replacement for milk and butter when making Kraft macaroni and cheese. I've also used it to make dip...

Oooh, icing. That sounds good!

I use it as a sour cream replacement on baked potatoes, or use a dollop on top of soups or chili.

I buy muller lights~ which are low cal yoghurts. With a bit of cinnamon, or some berries and popped into the freezer for 2 hours, its a silky soft icecream replacement for me <3

I have used regular plain yogurt in stroganoff, but not greek style. It worked ok, but it was clearly not as 'rich'. If you are on a budget, I'd save the greek style for when I want thickness on my spoon, and save the cheaper regular yogurt for being absorbed in to sauces.
