Healthy Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

Healthy Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

If you’re celebrating Easter this summer with a breakfast or brunch or want a light lunch or dinner dessert, try this recipe for Healthy Lemon Poppyseed Muffins. These muffins also make a scrumptious spring or summer breakfast, mid morning or afternoon snack or dessert. My family members love anything with fresh lemon, so these muffins always win rave reviews with my kids and husband. I lightened up this recipe which I adapted from Browneyed Baker and substituted nonfat plain Greek yogurt for the sour cream. I love her recipes, and her food blog is totally worthy of checking out! If you’re headed out of town for spring break this week or planning your summer travels, these Lemon Poppyseed Muffins are also perfect for travel snacking. Store them at room temperature in an airtight container, and they should last up to 4 days. Enjoy and happy Easter weekend!

Easter Brunch or Appetizer-Simple Smoked Salmon Dip

A lot of my newly married couples and friends have been asking me for Easter brunch recipe ideas. I had to do some thinking because I was trying to come up with a really light, delicious easy recipe that would work for a Easter brunch, lunch or dinner. I also wanted a recipe that would work for Passover. I love smoked salmon so I thought this would be a perfect fit. It’s so quick, delicious and light. I served it as my appetizer for my dinner last night, and it was a major hit.

Incredibly Easy Blueberry French Toast

Blueberry French Toast

This recipe is perfect for this time of year when spring brunch celebrations are upon us. When we have family brunches, I am always  asked to make this version of Blueberry French Toast. It’s my niece, Jamie’s, favorite, as well as my kids. This recipe is a breeze and can be done overnight. Just see the directions under “preparation” below. It can also be done with strawberries or even bananas in the middle of the cream cheese layer. I love to use Challah bread, but if you can’t find that, use a good French bread.
