It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers.So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is POPPY SEED MUFFINS. I love this quick, easy and tasty muffin. It satisfies my sweet tooth and I don’t feel deprived if I don’t slather it with butter. Love the crunch of the poppy seeds. It’s a great muffin to throw into the kidlet’s lunchbox, too! I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating! Karen P.S. We’re at 7 recipes and counting with this posting. Hope you find some recipes you like.
