Pork Tacos with Clementine Salsa

Sunday, April 12th, 2015

This recipe was inspired by the pork tacos with mango salsa in the excellent The Complete Cooking For Two Cookbook. I say inspired by, because we immediate proceeded to change just about everything. I'm sure it's an awesome recipe, but it also provided us with a great way to use ...

Spinach and Ham Breakfast Bake

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

This is a healthy, easy bake for breakfast. I made this last night and enjoyed a piece for breakfast this morning. I let it go a bit long in the oven, so it's a bit more brown in the picture than I was aiming for, but it's still ...

Baked Pork Flower Dumplings

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

I got to make the baked pork flower dumplings that I intended to make last week with my spiffy new oven. I reduced the scallion to just one and upped the garlic to 4 cloves, but otherwise followed the original recipe pretty closely. I did measure the liquid ...

Pork, Shiitake, and Snap Pea Stir Fry

Monday, March 4th, 2013

I had other plans for my ground pork, but my oven disagreed and died on me. Drat. The baked dumplings will have to wait for another day. The stovetop still works, though, so I went for a quick stir fry. This turned out quite well, especially for ...

Mini Hom Bao
