25 Recipes Using Greek Yogurt and Chobani Giveaway

I love using Greek yogurt in my cooking and baking. It helps my baked goods turn out moist, soft, and fluffy.

With rare exception, I use it interchangeably with sour cream. It’s thick and rich like sour cream, but isn’t as much of a caloric lead balloon.
