I am going to invoke an analogy which may not make any sense (though it does seem apropos with regard to the impending Mayan apocalypse)
Have you ever seen and/or listened to War of the Worlds?
Okay, so the premise is that these virtually unstoppable space aliens invade Earth, killing people left and right, slurping up their bodily fluids for sustenance. Earth is doomed, right? WRONG. The aliens start dying off on account of not having an immunity to all the tiny microorganisms and bacteria that populate the earth. THE EARTH IS SAVED.
Stay with me.

If everyone in the world were like me, stores would start playing Christmas music on the autumnal equinox and keep it up until at least President’s Day. Christmas trees would be a permanent home fixtures, and lights and decorations would stay up all year round.
Also, things like Halloween, power tools, and the RNC would probably not exist.

I did not grow up helping my mother in the kitchen, largely because my mother did not spend very much time in the kitchen. This was all fine and good with me, seeing as a) I had no interest in being in the kitchen unless ice cream was involved, and b) my mother spent her not-being-in-the-kitchen time doing other things. Like earning her Ph.D.
Because of this, there are probably about 3 or 4 recipes tops that my mother has committed to memory and prepares religiously on at least a biweekly basis. These muffins are one of them.

It’s only day 5 of Vegan MoFo, and already I’m struggling to remember a time before my thoughts were consumed with things like kale chips and Klout scores. Haven’t I always been obsessed with search engine optimization?
And, perhaps more importantly, does all this MoFo mania make me a real blogger, or just a very dedicated poser?
I find that, when faced with such weighty existential questions, the answer is usually muffins. Muffins are always ready to offer their unconditional validation.

Some of you don’t need me to tell you what today is.
And some of you do, which is perfectly reasonable and shall evince no judgmental or condemnatory rhetoric from me.
Today is, of course, the first day of my first-ever official participation in VEGAN MOFO!
… which, oddly enough, has nothing to do with Samuel L. Jackson brandishing a stalk of kale.
