Broiled Grapefruit with Brown Sugar and Yogurt

I’m not sure what it is about being pregnant, but I either crave salty foods or sour, citrus-y foods.  Lately, it’s the citrus stuff I can’t get enough of.  So I’ve been buying absurd amounts of grapefruits, oranges, tangerines, lemons, and limes.  Sometimes, I even slice into those lemons and limes and just suck on…
