 A Question of Lust. 

Today is Martin Gore's birthday and when I heard that, all I could think of was this song. It is my favorite Depeche Mode song where he sings lead. 

I don't know if his Wikipedia entry is accurate, but it's a fascinating read.

Almond Poppy Seed Bread

This is a test post to see if my webcam can capture good pictures of baked goods.

You can see the poppy seeds in there, right? The remainder of the batter was used to make a dozen muffins.

I couldn't find a recipe that I liked in my cookbooks or online so I added poppy seeds and almond extract to a plain/basic muffin recipe.  I'd post it, but I think there are better recipes to be had. What I thought was interesting and odd was that so many recipes called for sour cream.  Maybe next time I'll try this one.
