I was sent a copy for review and I love cooking and baking with yogurt. I know how tender and moist it makes foods become so I was excited to try some new recipes. 
I used a simple greek yogurt for these recipes and decided on a meal that I could use for a few days (aka food prep: great for gluten free/diabetic eating plans). I went for the Tilapia, creamed spinach and polenta. These recipes are naturally gluten free also (be sure to use gluten free corn grits though). 

Everything was delicious, the polenta was creamy (though after day one, it changes to a firm texture), loved the spinach and the tilapia was super tender because of the yogurt.
