Baking is total relaxation time for me. When I need to get my mind off things, I head to the kitchen.
When I’m bored I will bake. If I want to procrastinate, I will bake.
Basically I like baking. Good for you, cause I have this yummy recipe to share. Good for me and the hubs because we get to devour it.
Win – win right?
Okay, I totally feel like the big winner here, but you can too.
Grab 2 bowls and 1 loaf pan, then gather your ingredients and go!
Makes for a great snack any time of the day. Whether you need to relax, are bored, procrastinating a project or just like something tasty to munch on, this is it. It’s lemon poppyseed bread time.
