Lemon, Poppyseed & Blueberry Yogurt Muffins

Another day, another muffin. After all, who can't use a good muffin recipe? Especially as the days get brighter, the weather gets drier, and we find ourselves on the go and enjoying the great outdoors. Muffins make a great and healthy take along snack.

Although they use a majority of whole wheat flour, these muffins are particularly moist and light, partially due to the use of yogurt. And of course, lemon and blueberries are a winning combination, so you really can't go wrong here. Oh wait, yes you can---- You can make only one batch and see them disappear way to quickly! 

Next time, I am definitely doubling up. This recipe is a sure winner!

Dry Rub BBQ Ribs

The sun is shining, so it must be time to fire up the barbeque! 

Well, even if the sun isn't shining, it is always a good time to barbeque! Especially in our case, since our barbeque is just outside our kitchen door on the covered part of our deck, sheltered from mother nature and really just an extension of our kitchen! Oh, and did I mention our barbeque is natural gas? No need to lug propane tanks back and forth and no fear that the propane will run out just as your dinner is in the middle of cooking. Yep, it doesn't get any easier than that!!!!

So, now that the barbeque is uncovered and clean, the question is... what to make? I figure that you just can't start barbeque season without ribs, dry rubbed and slow cooked until tender? Yum yum!

I usually make a whole jar of dry rub, then put it in a mason jar to use on both chicken and ribs whenever I feel like it.
