    Awesome pictures! I really like your latest cropping and composition style of the photos! You’re a real artist!

    I’ve always known that about you ….. you have all your muffins in a row ….(or is that ducks?)

    PS – thanks for updating the header … I didn’t want to say anything ….. but ….. the sunflower was way out of season …. which isn’t like you …. you always have your muffins in a row. : )

    I have read exactly TWO of your recipes and gained 14 pounds.

    I have decided you might just be very evil. VERY funny…an exceptional photographer…and obviously an awesome cook…but for a chubby girl like me, you might be the equivalent of crack to an addict.

    Going to bed now…to dream of a toasted english muffin bread sandwich filled with tiny lemon poppyseed muffiny goodness.

    I will wake up tomorrow with pillow crumbs on my face and 25 pounds heavier. *sigh*

    Cheers!
