Poppy Seed Loaf and a Wedding

We hosted my good friend Kate’s wedding last weekend!  I warned her that I’d have to blog the occasion and she was more than happy to let me 🙂

After the ceremony Kate served all kinds of really yummy sweet breads and desserts!  I’m going to highlight a couple of the recipes this week starting with this amazing Poppy Seed Loaf…

When you make this Poppy Seed Loaf  you’ll see why it’s perfect for a wedding, it’s melt-in-your-mouth-wonderful!  I think making it into small loaves would be such a fun little gift to give friends or co-workers!!


Kate is one of my friends from bowling AND I’m so glad that I was able to meet these ladies… they’re amazing~ each in their own way!  Even though life gets crazy sometimes, we’re always there for each other and knowing that somehow makes it all a little easier 🙂
