Pork Dumplings
I thought these were really good. I used the recipe as a guideline, but made a few changes: I only used 1.5 pounds of ground pork, 8 cloves of garlic, about 1/4 cup of scallions, and I scaled the sesame oil back to 1 tablespoon. I used 1/3 of a head of regular cabbage that I blanched, and chopped up. I did not add the egg, as I think it would "toughen up" the meat mixture. It held together just fine without it. I would sugget using thin gyoza or wonton wrappers, as it really lets the flavors come through. I made wonton and pan fried it, and made some for soup. It was excellent! This recipe comes together very easily, and is a keeper! I am planning to make a batch tomorrow and put in my freezer for future meals. Thank you for posting!

Spam on the Go
I followed the recipe exactly, and this was pretty good. It reminded me of the fried noodles my mom used to make for us when we were little. I am half Japanese, and grew up in Hawaii, and this is the kind of thing you would find on a plate lunch. Thank you for sharing this, it is perfect when you want something good and you do not have a lot of time! I love Spam!

Tiramisu II
This was my first attempt at Tiramisu. This recipe was easy, and the results were excellent. I made a few changes, based on other reviews, and what I had available in the house. I combined the whipped cream and custard mixture, and I would suggest this, as I thought they tasted better combined. I used the hard ladyfingers, as that was what I could find. I used Starbucks Doubleshots and added dark rum. The Doubleshots are a combo of espresso and cream, and really give the tiramisu a strong coffee flavor. I ended up using about 3 6.5 oz cans. I made 2 9 x 9 pans of this with this recipe. I didn't know Tiramisu was so easy! Wish I had found this recipe years ago! I love that the egg is cooked, no worries about Salmonella! Thank you for sharing this, I will be making again and again!
