Pasta and muffins, but not together

I made Celine's Pumpkin-Almond sauce with spagetti and spinach for our first real home-made dinner. Although my picture really does no justice to how good the dish was, I wanted to show you none the less, I guess to prove I actually made and ate something at home. We enjoyed the pasta it with a side salad with more Cashew-Tamari dressing. I told you..major addiction. I think I eat it at least twice a day. I kind of messed with the sauce, and used vanilla Silk and almond butter, instead of soy creamer and almond meal. It's what I had on hand, and it worked out.

We made super-awesome-fantastaramic banana-chocolate chip muffins for breakfast this morning. My girlfriend used her kitchen aid to mix them up, and I am a firm believer that this improves the quality ten fold. The super rotten bananas, extra sugar, and chocolate chips also helped. They came out super duper moist, with huge muffin tops. Something I have never been able to achieve. I am so proud, and so addicted.

Made using a veganized version of Paula Deen's recipe. I know, there has been some controversy about Paula among vegans, and omnis alike due to her high fat, high sugar, and all around high grossness volume (can we say krispie kreme bread pudding with butter rum sauce?) But, I must admit I do love her. She is crazy, and funny, and sweet. Just like Martha Stewart, you've just got to admire her balls.

Thanks everyone for the well wishes in Austin. I am really enjoying it here, and I'm sure I will enjoy it even more once we get more settled in, and get to go out and have some fun. It's a great little place, and I'm happy to be here.
