The boys have four days of school left and per usual, every day is packed full of activities and fun. I’m spending a good portion of each day at the school, helping out, going on field trips, and attending awards ceremonies and such.
Thankfully, there is still time to make cookies in my busy schedule…especially when they’re these Glazed Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies. Unreal you guys.

I am all about lemon recipes during the summer. That bright yellow color and irresistible tartness just call to me like nothing else. I’m pretty lucky I guess that my family loves lemon as much as I do…that way I don’t have to eat them ALL 🙂
