After my last trip to Texas, I had my dad mail me back some of my belongings so I could make room to fit about 100 K-cups into my checked baggage instead.

A friend of mine mentioned lemon poppy seed muffins the other day, and I immediately wanted to make some. I didn’t have any poppy seeds though, and about the only thing I wanted more than a lemon poppy seed muffin was to NOT wrangle both kids through a trip to the grocery store.

My Husband and I had a nice supper the other night of roasted duck, mashed potatoes, and spinach. On Duck: Duck tends to be very fatty. If you score the skin before cooking it allows excess fat to drip away. Yes, I know the piece of duck on the plate looks mangled.
