  4. Two of the best kinds of muffins in one. I like that you use coconut oil in them too. I try hard not to use processed oils in baked goods, but occasionally butter isn't the best choice.

    I love watching My Cat From Hell too. I think my mother needs that guy. I wonder what he would have thought of the cat I had as a teenager, Puddlegum, who LOVED having his belly rubbed. Seriously, he was like a dog in that respect. He'd submit to a belly rub and fall asleep on his back.

    1. Hi Rachel, I do like using oils in muffins. It seem to keep them moist. Does your mom have a cat from hell?? Haha Puddlegum. That's a great name! The belly is the softest part of the cat. :)

    2. Yes. Her cats are okay individually, but they hate each other and take it out on all sorts of unsavory ways. They need help getting along. Puddlegum is a bit of a bastadization of Puddleglum the Marsh Wiggle in the Chronicles of Narnia.

  7. Oh yum yum yum! I wonder how it would do as a quick bread since I'm lazy and just like to pour the batter into one pan :)

  10. Is it a quarter cup of oil, and then melt it? Or is it a full quarter cup of melted oil?

    1. I used 1/4 cup in its melted state. Sorry! I should have clarified this in the recipe.

  11. You can usually get catnip kits at pet stores. Or try catgrass or catmint. Catmint has beautiful purple flowers - bonus! It's easy to dry and kitties love it. For noodles, it's not authentic thai, but thai-inspired and tasty: peanut butter + chili oil + fish oil + water + lime + ginger + garlic + sometimes a pinch of sesame oil over cold Udon or Soba noodles. Yum!

    1. Well, that's a good idea. My mom gave me some seed for nip. I need to plant it. Hopefully it's not too hard to grow. I saw catmint at a greenhouse a few months ago! I should have bought it. That sounds really good and perfect for summer. I've been craving cold noodles and pasta salad. Do you use fish sauce? Everytime I try to make a Thai dish it ends up tasting horribly wrong. I think maybe I add too much peanut butter.
