Cheryl:  I have a very good "faux" sourdough recipe that my family loves.  It 
uses sour cream (can be non-fat) and vinegar (instead of yogurt and lemon 
juice).  Think you might like to try it.

"Faux" Sourdough

 1 1/2 tsp       Yeast                    1/2 Cup       Sour Cream (non-fat
     2 Cups      Bread Flour                1 Tbls      Vinegar               
     1 Tbls      Sugar                    1/2 Cup       Milk                  
   1/8 tsp       Baking Soda                                                  

All ingredients should be at room temperature before starting.
Add the ingredients to the pan in the order listed.
Select "White Bread".
Press "Start".

Another one that I recently concocted is my version of "Muffaletta" Bread.  It 
is very much like sourdough and think you might like it too.  I make it on the 
"dough" setting of my machine then cook in my oven.  I'm sure it could be done 
completely in the machine if you want.

Muffeletta Bread

1 c warm water
1 T sugar
1 pkg dry yeast (about 1 T)
3 c bread flour
1.5 t salt
2 T veg shortening
Sesame seeds

Form into round loaf 10" in diameter.  On greased baking sheet.  Sprinkle with 
seeds and press in.  Cover with plastic.  Rise 1 hour.  Cook at 425 for 10
Reduce to 375 and bake 25 mins.

Happy Baking!
