Recipe for Poppy-Seed Muffins

This post includes the recipe of the poppy-seed muffins shown in the previous post.

If you haven't already done so get yourself one of those cheap photo albums that you can find at a dollar store or hundred yen store, if your shopping in Japan like one of my sweeties. Just cut the recipe out and pop it into a sleeve and there you have it. You will be glad you did. Don't try to get all perfect and cute, it will lead to a slim recipe collection. I have found comfort in mine for many years.

The album with "Cookies" across the front was from a church Christmas Cookie exchange. Everyone sent their recipes in ahead of time and a gal took time to put each recipe in this little photo album turned Cookie recipe book. Fun.

Some of the recipes in my book are hand printed while others were simply cut from the back of something.

Interestingly, the bread and pancakes recipes that I always use are securely taped to the inside of one of my cabinet doors. Hmm... I'd love to hear how you organize your recipes.
