Looking for non-dairy chocolate candy

I have always wanted to go dairy free and now my body is forcing me to. Happily, I've discovered violife non-dairy cheese. Now I am trying to find a good substitute for chocolate candy, especially peanut M&Ms. I do not like the brand Coconut Cloud. All suggestions welcome. Thanks!

So many (boneless, skinless) chicken thighs!

Because we have a fondness for Country Captain Soup and Fire Chicken, we always keep boneless, skinless chicken thighs on hand. But now, for Reasons, we have far more packages of them than we can use in a reasonable period of time making just these two dishes. Please share your favorite recipes for boneless, skinless, chicken thighs!

Ruby chocolate chips

On a whim, I picked up ruby chocolate chips. What should I do with them? I don't like most blondies but am otherwise open to ideas. I have or can access any typical baking ingredients (I've had trouble sourcing cacao butter lately) and have no allergies.

How do I balsamic vinegar without Trader Joe’s?

I’ve been buying the same balsamic vinegar from Trader Joe’s for years - it’s really good and only costs around $6 a bottle. Unfortunately I took the train to TJs, and am obviously not doing that anymore and am limited to what I can get online or from my regular local supermarket. There’s also a Whole Foods within walking distance. [more inside]

How do I bake half a recipe of bread?

I am making this recipe for no-knead bread proofed in an instant pot. I didn't have enough flour for the full recipe so I cut it in half. But now I am not sure how to adjust the baking time. I also have an enormous dutch oven (7 quart I think) and I'm thinking that might not allow my bread to rise well enough. Any suggestions for how to optimize my baby loaf?

homemade Trinidad-style curry powder

I have some goat meat. I would like to make goat curry using a Trinidadian recipe, but the recipes I'm looking at call for a commercial curry powder. How can I approximate the right one? Do you have a homemade curry powder recipe you like for food from the Caribbean specifically? Alternatively, do you have a sense of which spices are most prevalent in curry from Trinidad?
