After chatting about what homemade gifts you are planning for your sweetie this Valentine's Day on our Facebook fan page, one reader, Ramona, asked you herbies for a good lavender muffin recipe. Four recipes were submitted. Below are two of them. (White Chocolate and Lavender Muffins, and Lavender-Lemon Blueberry Muffins. YUM!) Watch out for the remaining two recipes, which I will post tomorrow.
