With or without the lemon glaze, these lemon poppy seed muffins are a sweet way to treat your mom and celebrate spring as we get ready to head into summer.

Chocolate and zucchini seems like an unlikely combo but it actually works. It's a sneaky way to add some nutrients to your chocolate muffins and it's a decadent way to serve zucchini to your family.

Zucchini Bread

I wanted to be able to enjoy the zucchinis that are in season {and get my son to eat the healthy green veggie} without also consuming an abundance of butter or oil. So I made zucchini bread with low-fat yogurt instead of oil. Between the grated zucchini and the yogurt the bread was incredibly moist and my family didn't miss the oil at all.

Substituting low-fat yogurt for the shortening in my family's classic banana bread recipe makes for a healthier banana bread that is still moist and flavorful.

Last summer I wanted to make habañero cornbread with the habañeros from our garden. The cornbread itself is moist and cake-like.

But feel free to substitute canned chiles if you want to tame it down. Or add habañero peppers if you think you are up for the spicy challenge!

This cornbread has an intense corn flavor and a coarse texture. I like to make cornbread muffins but you can also bake it in a cake pan.
