day! Apparently because Wednesday is the "hump" of the
week (half way until the weekend) we should congratulate everyone for
making it this far! So as it's only two days away this afternoon I
thought I'd let you know what I got up to with my weekend!
I had a
very relaxed weekend, didn't have much planned at all. Other than
picking up my very first pair of glasses! I spent my morning baking
my favourite muffin of all time, the lemon and poppyseed muffin! They
were so scrumptious, my fiance has even been eating them for
breakfast on his way to work! I am even eating one as I blog!
It was my first
attempt at making these muffins and I couldn't believe how easy they
were to bake! I did tweak the instructions slightly and next time I'd like to add lemon curd into the centre to make them that extra yummy!

glaze. For a thick white glaze, add just enough water for the glaze
to have a rich consistency to dip the muffins into.

back into the bowl. Place muffins on a rack to let glaze set.

It was worth the wait once iced they tasted incredible!
I hope you've all had a good week so far! Let me know if you try this recipe out or have any other tips or ideas!
