Simple and Tasty Chinese Steamed Buns

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2012
I was looking for a recipe I could use to imitate the steamed buns you find in the freezer aisle of Asian grocery stores, and these far surpassed my expectations! I filled them with homemade red bean paste by rolling out a 2-inch square of the dough, putting 2-3 teaspoons of filling in the center, and twisting the top to close. It made the best red bean buns I have ever tasted. The dough was a bit sticky at first, so I had to use a lot of flour to knead it, but it was still less trouble than the average loaf of bread. Make sure you place a square of parchment paper under each bun before placing it in the steamer, and serve with the parchment so you can hold the buns without your hands getting sticky. They still taste good if reheated in the microwave, but eat immediately for the best taste. I can't wait to try these with a beef filling!

Radish Top Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2012
This was an excellent idea for a soup. I used two small onions instead of one large, used up some canned potatoes I had, used vegetable broth instead of chicken broth, used extra radish greens, and added the sliced radishes in with the onions. When I was done blending it, I realized there were still some of the fibers from the radishes left, so I strained the soup before continuing. Because the color and texture reminded me so much of the spinach curry that I love, I added a teaspoon of pepper, a teaspoon of garlic, and a whole tablespoon of curry powder. I garnished it with paprika to brighten it up a bit and served it with feta cheese to accent the spiciness. My mom and I loved it!

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2012
What a good idea for a really tender salmon steak! I used only 1/8 cup maple syrup, since I don't like meat or fish to be too sweet. I was all out of soy sauce, so I used gyoza sauce instead. I used more pepper than was called for and used regular garlic instead of garlic salt, since the gyoza sauce was salty enough. I served it with a slightly spicy, curry-like soup to help tone down the sweetness a bit. It was excellent!

123 Green Tea Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2012
This is a good idea, but I have a feeling it would be much better if you just made your own vanilla ice cream, omitting the vanilla and adding the green tea powder before the mixture is frozen. If you try to add it to pre-made ice cream, it is a long and messy process to mix the powder in, leaving you with a somewhat bitter end product. However, I am thankful to have found this recipe, as it gives me the proper portions of green tea powder to use in my homemade ice cream. I will definitely be making my own green tea ice cream now. :3
