These poppy seed muffins are soft, fluffy and moist, they have a hint of almond flavor and are topped with the perfect lemon glaze. They rival bakery muffins in taste and quality.

I have been on the hunt for the perfect poppy seed muffin for a while now.  I've tried many recipes and I finally figured out THE perfect variation.

Getting to this point took a lot of trial and error. Some versions were dry and crumbly. Some were too dense. I had almost given up, but I finally nailed it.

If you've never tried homemade O'Henry Bars, then you have been missing out.  Or maybe you have tried them, but didn't know it because you call them Scotcharoos! Whatever you call them they are super yummy, very addicting, and so easy to make!

The base of these bars are made up of chewy peanut butter crispies. They are topped with a layer of butterscotch chocolate. They are SO good. You MUST try them and find out for yourself.

I decided to dig out my wood burning tool for this project. I've had it a while and I never think to use it. This project has me determined to find more ways to utilize the tool.

Wood burning is a little bit intimidating to me. I love to create, but I'm not naturally artistic. But you guys! This is the perfect wood burning project for beginners like me. This only the second time I've used the tool and I'm loving how these ornaments turned out.

I'll show you how you can make some too!
