Difficulty: Easy, 30 minutes. Serves 12.

I decided to make it a lemon poppyseed muffin instead of just regular poppyseed.

-1⅓ cups flour
-½ teaspoon baking soda
-½ teaspoon salt
-¼ cup butter
-¾ cup sugar
-2 eggs
-1 tbsp lemon zest
-1 tablespoon lemon juice
-¾ cup yogurt (plain or vanilla)
-1 tablespoon poppyseeds

Mix the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, salt) together in a small bowl. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Crack in the eggs, and add in the lemon zest and lemon juice.

I didn’t use lemon zest because I didn’t have a lemon on me, so I added a bit more lemon juice instead. The zest can be obtained from using a lemon on a fine cheese grater, taking off the outermost yellow lining of the peel. It adds flavour and colour.

Add the yogurt into the mixture and mix thoroughly until smooth.

Add the dry ingredients all at once and combine. Stir in the poppyseeds.

Grease the bottoms of a 12 count muffin tin. Fill each tin ⅔ full. Bake at 425°F for 15 minutes or til done.

They’re light and fluffy and good for both desserts or breakfasts.

“Tall, black coffee to go and a lemon poppyseed muffin, right?” He always ordered the same thing, ever since he’d starting showing up like clockwork, 7:30 am on the dot.

“Uhh, right,” he said, a little taken aback that you remembered his order, though on further reflection he supposed he was being a little bit predictable. “Maybe I should switch it up one of these days,” he said a little gruffly, immediately clearing his throat.

You smiled brightly at him. “Nah. Lemon poppyseed is my favorite. And I respect a man who drinks his coffee black,” you said, hoping he was picking up on the flirtatious tone. “It’ll just be $3.50,” you said, also from memory, though you punched it into the cash register just to double check. You looked up at the handsome guy across the counter and flushed a little pink in your cheeks when you found him staring at you intently, apparently studying your face. You smiled shyly and looked down at the counter. “Umm, $3.50?” you prodded again.

“Oh–right. Sorry…” he began to dig into his pockets for some change and laid a five dollar bill down on the counter. “I think I’ve got some–I’ve got change,” he said, switching to the next pocket. At length he laid a couple quarters down on the counter and you began to make change for him before he waved you off. “Keep it,” he said, flashing you a quick smile and gratefully accepting the warm cup from you. Your fingers brushed as you handed off the drink and you felt the sensation of fluttering butterflies in your stomach.

“Thank you,” you said with another bright smile. “See you tomorrow.”

He raised the cup to you a little, as if he was giving a toast, and nodded. “See you tomorrow.” His deep voice was still resonating in your mind long after his broad shoulders passed through the front door and disappeared around the corner.

At work today I got to hang out at a farm and touch all the animals. Ginger the alpaca gave me a kiss right on my face ❤️

It was the best day at work ever. I literally teared up with joy when I saw animals. Plus I got to take home a bunch of free organic veggies: so much kale, sage, mint, cherry tomatoes, eggplant, green beans, and peppers. I bought some honey and a delicious lemon poppyseed muffin. And I got to love on some baby goats and their mamas.
