I made homemade butterfingers. They aren't as crunchy, but they were flaky. I waited until candy corn got really cheap after Halloween. I cut the recipe in half because I wasn't sure if I'd like them. Also, instead of dipping each piece I just patted the stuff into a bread pan, then melted some milk chocolate chips (a handful, didn't measure) and put it on top like frosting. I can't believe how addictive they were last night (of course, it had been a stressful day, so that may be part of it--I normally don't eat a ton of candy).
Since I melted the chocolate chips in a coffee mug, I got to make hot chocolate milk with the stuff I didn't get scraped out of the mug or off the spoon--so two treats in one day

I made farmer's cheese today, which I will use in perogi tomorrow. It was a bit messier than I expected and the house still smells a little of vinegar but the cheese is the right taste and consistency. I guess the real verdict will be tomorrow when I make the perogi with it.
Next weekend, my aunt is going to teach me and dd to make Humbugs or hard tac candy. My grandma used to make it but i never did and my mom never did. It is one of the things i remember from my childhood and trips to grandma.
So, I'm going to go make a chocolate avocado cake with avocado frosting, since I have two avocados my dad didn't need for his guacamole. Wish me luck...! I don't have my phone, so won't be able to post pictures, but if it turns out I'll share the link
So, the cake is good Not too sweet, moist, nice chocolate flavor. I'll probably make it again. I don't think I'll make the frosting again though, it's just too sweet. Next time I'll either just sprinkle a little powdered sugar on top, or make a coconut or cream cheese frosting.
Oh, I never posted the hamburger chowder recipe...
This is from a friend of Molly Mouser, we'll call her "D". Her son made sure I also got the bread stick recipe, both were very good. The original recipe doesn't call for potatoes, but I had to add them, because I love potatoes.

I made sweet potato/ricotta gnocchi with a brown butter & basil sauce, and it was good. My husband and I both liked it a lot more than we thought we would. I had the leftovers for lunch today, and I think I like it more now than I did after the first serving.
I used this recipe, but didn't have sage and have a buttload of basil - so I used that. I'm not sure the sage would be any better.
