@Kidsandliz indeed. One uncle got out of the marines in ‘65 and spent the next 10 years in California. The other uncle got out of the army in ‘68. Both started college when they got out. Both married California girls. I imagine they weren’t strangers to the weed.
I just didn’t expect them to pick up where they left off, so to speak.
You know how it is, every generation thinks THEY invented pot, sex, smoking, drinking, religion, and so on.
@heartny Nyet. The ultimate brown butter chocolate chip cookies have been discussed here in the forums but their maker is unwilling to share the recipe. Nonetheless I hold out hope that will not always be the case.
@UncleVinny ok, have you made it? If you really do, I want to know if you like it. Also, I do not get the one in your recipe; I get the one in the picture I posted. It is my birthday cake every year.
The frosting on top and between the layers is ricotta based. It is thick and tastes similar to a cannoli filling. The cake is similar to white wedding cake and I can taste a hint of almond. Then there are toasted nuts around the side of the cake. It is pure perfecrion!
@tinamarie1974 heheheh I was just goofing around with the newsletter and the “i’m going to make this tonight” stuff. Typical UncleVinny nonsense.
But! I would like to make this someday, and I’d rather make the kind of subtle cake you’re describing than the over-the-top candied fruit version. Maybe I’ll keep looking on the web and see if I can find a better recipe.
Have you ever had a good scone, friend? No, I mean, like really had one? Pretty intense. Flakes of the cosmos. Deep-crust interior of celestial knowledge, standing athwart every flow, time beyond mind, the ancient shriek of biota and proto-geology.
@mml666 I always wondered that too especially when I see them at the bake sale for the Catholic church.
Wiki says: Jewish apple cake is a dense cake made with apples and sold mostly in Pennsylvania in the United States. Apples (or quinces in Israel) are common in Ashkenazi cooking and are a part of the tradition of Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year). Jewish apple cake is also non-dairy, and it may therefore be eaten with meals containing meat, in accordance with Jewish laws of kashrut.
It is suspected to have originated in Poland.
It is made with vegetable oil, unlike other American cakes, which are usually made with butter. Therefore, under the laws of Kashrut, you can eat it after a meat meal under the Jewish dietary laws that prohibit mixing meat and milk. Foods cooked with oil are eaten at Hanukkah
@callow Chocolate Lasagna??? I hope lasagna is metaphorically speaking with respect to many layers of chocolate and cake/cookie stuff rather than hamburger, cheese, tomato sauce and chocolate. The later would be as disgusting as candy corn pizza.
Someone brought me in some mini Bundt cakes from a franchise called Nothing Bundt Cake. I’ve been thinking about them ever since. They were absolutely delicious. I want to try recreating them because they aren’t local and they’re pricy.

$20ish for the box shown. Granted, they are worth it, but I’m hoping I can figure out a similar homemade version.
I make special brownies, but they’re milk chocolate with Reese’s peanut butter chips! I guess you could also make this version minus the special, but what’s the point of a brownie without the special?!
