These Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins are really good and fast to fix. Am I on a muffin recipe kick? You bet’cha!

When it starts getting cooler out, I make good use of my oven. I like warm things to eat first thing–in our 110 year old Victorian home, it’s almost mandatory!

I like using a Powdered Sugar and Lemon Juice Icing over the top of them. Yeah, maybe not the most healthy, but it sure does brighten up breakfast. I have omitted the Lemon Peel because we didn’t have any on-hand, and it has still tasted great.
