Yogurt "Sour Cream"

I use plain yogurt, heavy cream/whipping cream, sour cream, kefir interchangeably with many recipes. At the sake of embarrassing myself, here's a ridiculously easy cheater's version of sour cream. Please note that I always use whole milk plain yogurt and never use any type of reduced fat versions. C/O Delicious Living.
