When life gives you Meyer lemons...
So today has been a less than perfect day for me.Everything I seem to touch is going wrong. You don't even want to know how many times I had to edit this. So I am stepping away from my real job as a realtor and writing for today and baking. Over the weekend a great, old friend gave me a ton of citrus from her trees that I have been sharing like crazy but I still have A LOT of. One of the prizes of this gift is some beautiful Meyer lemons (a very close second are the delish and sweet tangerines). So I have been searching for recipes to make. Today's winner is Meyer lemon cream cheese muffins, which are supposed to be highly delicious. The recipe is from Teeniecakes.com and got me excited. Actually I love most any muffin or cupcake so I will probably love them since they resemble tiny cakes. Hopefully, the baking will get me out of my funk and help me feel more productive and more focused on writing the third book. My characters are beginning to talk to me again and today shushed them. So hopefully Eamon, Amelie, Lauryl and even Heydrich will resume talking to me because I so want to finish this book and meet my deadline!
