Poppy Seed Muffins
Meet the Cook: Because these muffins are a bit heavier than many of the snack type, they are perfect for when you wake up hungry. They're quick and easy, too. I adapted them from a poppy seed quick bread I was served once at a neighbor's.
My husband and I are the parents of three sons - 16, 15, and 12.
