Blueberry Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins Vegan Gluten-free

Blueberry, Lemon & Poppy Seed Muffins {vegan, gf}

I am in no way inclined to move. Only my fingers move as they type these words. Only my eyes move as they read them. Aside from these, my body is stationary. Just how I like it. The thought of blogging these blueberry, lemon and poppy seed muffins got me out of bed this morning,…

Dutch Spiced Blondie Bars Gluten-Free

Dutch Spiced Blondie Bars {gf}

“Every person needs to take one day away. A day in which one consciously separates the past from the future.

If the moniker were not already taken, I would totally rename this blog, ‘The Lazy Baker/Cook’. Because that is what I am. If I can’t whip it up within a matter of minutes, it doesn’t make the cut. Perhaps when I was younger I was attracted to highly intricate recipes, but not now. In a…
