Chinese Wonton Soup Recipe


September 3rd, 2020

I dream of this Chinese Wonton Soup recipe almost every week. This addictive soup is simple to make and very rewarding. These tasty little dumplings are believed to have been introduced to the West by early Chinatown settlers from Canton, Southern China. Wonton literally means “swallowing clouds” in Chinese. You can make the wontons ahead of time and freeze them on a baking sheet. Make the broth a head of time and freeze it also for the wonton soup or other nourishing meals.

Sweet and Sour Chicken


August 24th, 2020

Nothing is more quintessential to Americanized Chinese food than the sweet and sour chicken. The origin of sweet and sour chicken was in the 18th century or earlier from China. It spreads to the United States in the early 20th century after the Chinese migrant gold miners and railroad workers turned to cookery as trades. Yes, became a little sweeter for the American pallet, but still as delicious. Try my other Asian fare and be delighted by the authentic flavors.

Delicious orange olive oil cake for snack or breakfast. Easy to put together with just a few ingredients.  Dollop of ice cream makes this cake to die for.  The Italians know just how to make olive oil shine, with this Torta D'olio D'oliva. The olive oil makes this cake fragrant and moist.  You can add a bit of sourdough if you'd like to use up your discard. I enjoy making everything with sourdough.
