Dr. Dan’s Movember Contest

OK, so I’m conflicted about doing this, as I *hate* Movember, what with moustaches being the devil and all. But it is for a good cause *and* because I want to support the follicle-y challenged Dr. Dan, I thought I should tell you all about Dr. Dan’s Movember contest. But I’m only doing it to support my friend and the health of many a prostate – I still hate Movember and it’s evil moustache ways.

So, yeah, Dr. Dan is having a contest over on his blog and he needs you to go vote on some Mo-Bros so he knows who to donate his money to. Go there. Go there now!


Banana Muffins Are Always Better With Chocolate Chips

I’m going after item #25 on my 101 list: “bake at least one thing per month for 12 months in a row, without baking the same thing two months in a row.” Last month I made the skull cupcakes and since this month is nearly over, I decided to do an easy one: banana chocolate chip muffins1. I have a long history of baking banana bread, because banana bread is freaking delicious. I used to use a recipe from an Edith Bunker cookbook that my mom has, but recently Sarah shared this recipe with me and it’s even more delicious! I think it’s the addition of yogurt – makes it so moist! I added chocolate chips, because chocolate chips make banana bread 125% more delicious. And I decided to make muffins instead of bread because then you don’t even have to slice it. Because slicing is totally for suckers.

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

So, there you have it. Two months down, ten to go!

  1. I did bake scones this month, but they were craptastic, so I decided that they didn’t count. Incidentally, if anyone has a good scone recipe, let me know! []
