How to Bake Rhubarb Poppyseed Yogurt Muffins

Rhubarb Poppyseed Yogurt Muffins - CookingWithKimberly.comI was wandering around my backyard today and noticed our rhubarb plant growing out of control.

So, I chopped down a heap of it and need to create some rhubarb recipes for you.

Since it`s a weekend, I`m going to create a treat – Rhubarb Poppyseed Yogurt Muffins from Scratch with his fresh rhubarb.

  1. I was wandering around my backyard today and noticed my rhubarb is just popping out of the ground. Planted some peas today and waiting for the purple passion asparagus to come up.
