With the over ripe squished bananas I picked up on the cheap, I made Camilla's Banana Toasted Millet Muffins. I used all white whole wheat flour, sucunat instead of brown sugar, my yogurt was greek, and I threw in some dark chocolate covered cacao nibs that had been hiding in the back of my pantry! Mmm, the little crunch from the millet and melty chocolate... these were good.

Now, what to do with the roasted buttercup squash that you forgot you had? Well, I'm so glad it hadn't gone bad, because I got the chance to try one of Dawn's amazing creations. Seriously, she comes up with some outrageous looking goodies and has me drooling on a regular basis! I used the squash in her Sweet Potato Cheddar Cookies, and wow. She hits all the right notes with these! Serendipity, really, I also had some Dubliner that needed to get used :) I actually wasn't sure I could taste the cheese when I sneaked a bit of the batter before baking, but it was definitely there after baking. I left out the raisins (didn't have any) and my only other changes were to use Smart Balance 50/50 sticks and white whole wheat flour.

One last thing, that I've been meaning to discuss!! Remember when I introduced you to CSN stores? They're actually a Boston-based online retailer for tons of (not just home) goods. Not only can you browse cookware, but if you're in the mood to rearrange your living room, perhaps one of their corner tv stands will help maximize your space? I'm going to be doing a product review for them in the upcoming weeks, but in the mean time-- check out one of their many stores for whatever you might need!
