Call them fried pork dumplings, Chinese dumplings, or even potstickers. Whatever you do, don’t call them difficult to make. So much easier to make than you’d ever imagine.
Tender eggplant covered in a deeply flavored Hakka sauce that’s ready in a snap. Eating your veggies has never been so rewarding.
Baked pizza crust with all the makings of a proper breakfast on top. Seems like a pretty darn good reason to get out of bed to us.
Milky Way Tart
This tart remakes the famous candy bar with its milk chocolate mousse, chocolate curls, and luscious caramel drizzle. And it’s surprisingly simple to make.
Chinese Chicken Salad
Chinese chicken salad is just like those salads you get at the restaurants with the oranges and cashews and the lovely balance of crunchy and tender and sweet and savory.
Hot and Sour Soup
This is, quite frankly, the loveliest hot and sour soup we’ve ever had, with none of the usual gloppiness of takeout Chinese. And it’s on the table in just 20 minutes.
Rhubarb Brown Sugar Pie

These homemade Oreos aren’t the treats of childhood. These are intensely chocolate-y. Definitely a grown-up indulgence.
