Turtle Candy

I wanted to take some candy or dessert home for Thanksgiving.  The type of recipe that people would swoon over and request it again and again.  So I picked up my grandmother’s cookbook and browsed the candy section.  I’d never made turtle candy before but I knew it would be a spit fire recipe...

For my birthday back in September, Shaun gave me a pasta attachment for my kitchen aid mixer and a pasta cooking class.  Well, I decided to make pasta on my own before the basic pasta class and it didn’t end good.  Last Thursday night we finally had the class where we learned to make...
