Chinese Pork Dumplings
I have done this recipe several times and it is fabulous. It is really really easy to make it just takes a little time but what I do is double the recipe and they freeze very well

Tomato, Cucumber and Red Onion Salad with Mint
I've been made fun of for making this, for years! So glad to see that other people enjoy it too. I've never known how to dress it up and thanks to you now I can. I always had it with just tomatoes, cukes, vinegar, salt, pepper! And folks out there concerned about it getting watery, not a problem. Cukes and tomatoes are so full of water, the ingredients bring out that water. But I just eat this delicious, refreshing snack and leave the water in my dust. It's always going to "sweat" I believe it's called, just because of it's character. Not a problem for me, I use a fork and the water just drains right through to the bottom of the dish. :o)

Baker's Secret Pie Crust
A double OMG on this pie crust. Everyone raves about it and Carolealana deserves the rave reviews. I've never heard of using egg or vinegar to wet the dough but it works like a miracle. I made a cherry pie at 2am last night and the pie didn't last 24 hours, for a family of . . . 2. Me and my husband could not get enough pie crust! Absolutely delicious. Thank you Carole, thank you, thank you. I will use this recipe the rest of my life, I will hand it down to my kids, and I'm sure they will hand it down to theirs! OMG.
