random muffins and fall pasta [Sep. 19th, 2007|01:19 pm]
What Ya Got Cookin'


i've been really experimental in the what ya got arena lately. today i have two offerings:

2 c oat bran
1/4 c soy flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 c old nuts from last year crushed with a bookend
1/2 c chopped dried apples i found on a shelf
1/4 tsp kosher salt
(( mix up really well and set asside ))


1 banana mashed into babyfood
1/3 c random honey leavings (i used gallflower and knotweed and a little wildflower because that's what i had)
3/4 c goatsmilk (i mixed it whole)
2 tbsp sunflower butter
(( mix up really good and add to the wet ingredients, stirring as little as possible to moisten everything ))

(( cook at 425 for around 15 minutes in muffin tins ))
(( enjoy with a whole pot of tea ))

(( 156 calories per; makes 12; are incidentally almost vegan ))

and also:
1 can pumpkin puree
1-ish tablespoon red wine vinegar
2-ish tbsp actual red wine (we had chianti hanging around for some reason)
1/2 c black tea
1/2 bottle baby juice, mixed fruit variety
1-ish tbsp oliveoil
salt, pepper, sage, rosemary, oregano, italian herb mix, garlic
teensy bit of brownsugar

throw it all in a pot and cook it slowly because it splatters all over
let it sit to marry the flavors while you cook the pasta-- i made baby totellinis and baby raviolis from the scratch and dent store
throw the pasta into the sauce, mix it all up and eat it because it's cold and rainy and in need of some fallness

i think next time i'm going to add sauteed onions, but we didn't have any this time

I have to admit I'm impressed by anyone who can toss random things into a pot and produce a baked good as I have trouble doing so even when following a tried and true recipe.

i was kind of impressed myself. but i watch alot of food network and muffins were the very first thing i learned how to cook (way back when i was 7 or 8), so i was kind of aware that peanut butter can be used instead of oil and bananas can be used instead of eggs, and the rest was just sort of a 1-to-1 switch...
