Not just fuzzy soybeans... tempeh!

Okay, okay. So I know you were expecting more muffins (and they're coming up soon!), but I couldn't wait to share my latest culturing adventure.

Before you run away screaming, these extremely moldy soybeans are actually intentionally so - they were inoculated with isolated spores and incubated under specific conditions to promote only the desired kind of fungal growth. It may look fuzzier than what you're used to, but it's... tempeh!

Month of muffin mania, 1!

It's been a month of muffin madness around here!

It's hard to find a person who doesn't like a muffin, so over the summer I decided to spend September honing my muffin baking skills by baking muffins for my housemates (expert taste testing team) on a biweekly basis (in the twice-a-week sense). They're all interesting twists on the classics, with original recipes and the approval of approximately 30 happy tummies. They were all delicious, but the ones I've decided to share all got rave reviews. Enjoy!
