About Recipe

I had two whole paragraphs written about how hard this week has been and how big of an a-hole my toddler AND puppy have been all week, but then I changed my mind. So I deleted it. I didn't want to write about that stuff today. While I try to keep this space real and honest (including the good and bad of motherhood), for today, I am choosing to focus on the positive. I am turning my lemons into lemonade. OK, no I'm not, but I AM turning them into the most moist, sweet and happy Lemon Poppy Seed Quick Bread. My favorite thing about lemon poppy seed bread is that it is delicious as a sweet breakfast alongside an oversized cup of coffee, or as dessert. Or, in the case of my day, both. And then there's the poppy seeds. I don't know what it is about these teeny-tiny seeds, but somehow they make this soft, moist, buttery lemon bread even better. Anyone know? I tried Googling it (of course) and all that came up was "Can eating poppy seeds cause you to fail a drug test?"  No drug tests in my future, so I can't get back to you on that one. Aside from turning pretty lemons into even prettier lemon poppy seed bread, it is Friday and tomorrow Octavian will be spending the night at his Nana's house. I debated about having him spend the night because I miss him when he is gone for more than a few hours, but then this morning happened and I decided ummm, no. He's going. And, to be honest, I need more than the 14 minutes of "me time" that my husband would be able to give me. Happy Mother's Day to me. And all you other FANTASTIC Mama's out there! Lemon Poppy Seed Quick Bread Prep Time: 15 minutes / Cook Time: 45-55 minutes / Total Time: 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes Yield: 1 large loaf Ingredients 1 2/3 cup all-purpose flour 2 Tablespoons poppy seeds 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/8 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 2/3 cup granulated sugar 2 Tablespoons lemon zest (from approximately 4 small lemons) 1/2
