Triple Green Pot Stickers

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I thought I wouldn’t have any more post today, but our dinner last night happened to be quite appropriate for today’s post. This is definitely not an Irish dish. But I got the color right. When I found this beautiful baby back choy at the local Asian grocery store, I knew […]

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

It should be easy to come up with a cool dish that is green. But this year I probably over-thought and couldn’t really decide what to post until the last minute. So, here it is. I don’t even have a name for it. But it’s a slice of sourdough bread with a good-luck four-leaf Matcha-sugar […]

But this time I experimented with garbanzo beans (pureed and creamed); I also used some corn starch. I wanted fettucini for this dish, but I […]
