lemon poppyseed bread

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.

I just got back from a morning strength workout.  Feels so good to workout!  Breakfast, then off to work and a midwife appointment this afternoon.  Happy Friday all!
