Yaki Mandu, Fried Korean Dumpling

Korean Inspired, Pork, Uncategorized | September 6, 2016 | By

I love yaki mandu! It’s one of my favorite snacks or appetizers. I usually make a whole lot of these and freeze them so I can just pull them out when I want since they can be time consuming to make.

Quick Vegetarian Arroz Mamposteao, Puerto Rican Rice

I just got back from an amazing trip to Puerto Rico and I’m excited to share some of the dishes I picked up while there. My version is slightly different as I cut down on some of the steps to save time but the flavor is still there. I will also so that sofrito is typically blended until smooth before cooked but I like the chunky vegetables in the rice. It’s up to your preference though.

It’s grilling season and I know everyone is cooking wonderful gourmet burgers. The best way to enjoy those burgers is on a wonderful Brioche bun. These buns have more substance which makes them awesome for holding your juicy burger.

Easy Peach Pie with Buttery Flakey Crust

I love this time of year and I love when peaches start rolling into the farmer’s markets. It’s a promise of the sunshine and hot sunny days that are coming. Unfortunately the first peaches aren’t that ripe yet but I always feel the need to buy a basket or two. One of the best ways to enjoy them now are in a beautiful pie.
