Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

We love Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins they are so light and full of flavor.

Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins from serenabakessimplyfromscratch.com.

4 Days left until spring! I can't wait! 
In Washington that means warmer weather, hopefully less rain and tulips!  
I can't wait for our first 60-70 degree day to kick everyone out of the house and work in the yard, my poor garden could use some serious attention.
As I was flipping through Dorie Greenspan's Baking From My Home To Yours yesterday I came across Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins and knew these would be a perfect treat to help kick start spring with the bright lemon flavor and gorgeous little poppy seeds.
After a few taste testings later, Colt and I agreed these are an Easter brunch must! 
Besides being easy and gorgeous they are absolutely divine!

Strawberry Rhubarb Coffeecake

One of my favorite things about this time of year is the abundance of Strawberries and Rhubarb. This Strawberry Rhubarb Coffee Cake is the perfect beginning or end to any day.

Strawberry Rhubarb Coffeecake is an easy to make family favorite perfect for brunch or dessert.
*Updated*
I'm slowing going through and updating some of my old posts with the new easy printable recipe cards and doing whatever I can so the page will load faster for you, and since I'm doing that I thought I would re-share Strawberry Rhubarb Coffeecake since it's a family favorite! 

I have a few new recipes I'll hopefully be sharing soon but in the mean time I hope you love Strawberry Rhubarb Coffeecake as much as we do!

Chocolate Almond Cherry Granola Bars


Chocolate Almond Cherry Granola Bars
I've partnered with California Almonds on this sponsored post and all opinions stated are my own.

Chocolate Almond Cherry Granola Bars are the perfect anytime grab and go snack! With all the oats, almonds, and dried cherries they are super high in fiber and protein making them great for on the go. We love to take them with us when we go hiking, and camping, or even on long road trips. They're surprisingly easy to make.

With February being Almond Month, and the 16th being Almond Day. I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than with Chocolate Almond Cherry Granola Bars. They also make a great heart healthy snack since it is also American Heart Month and National Snacking Month.. I even love to grab one of these high protein bars to satisfy my sweet tooth, a little chocolate on the top goes a long ways. 1 ounce of almonds contains 6 grams of protein, and 4 grams of fiber. They are also an excellent source of antioxidants, vitamin E, and magnesium. I like to snack on 1.5 ounces of almonds daily to curb my appetite without increasing calorie intake or body weight. Make sure to have a handful of almonds ready to snack on is a simple habit that is easy, and good for you!
