So how are your new year's resolutions going?  Sticking to a healthier routine?  How about today we take a teeny weeny break as I tempt you with these baked Lemon Poppy Seed muffins?  Sorry :) but I personally just needed a little something sweet this week and my love of lemons was calling my name.  Remember they are baked and not fried so one or two won't break the diet!

Hello sunshine!  Well, you too but I'm talking to this bowl of pure happiness that makes a great addition to starting off the new year right.  Doesn't it scream fresh and healthy?  I'm not sure about you but I am trying to eat better and incorporate more fruits, grains and greens into my diet and this salad fits the bill.  I love it and might want to marry it but that would be weird right :)
