Cooking Momofuku at home
October 2, 2010 My mom is obsessed with keeping a stocked freezer, but I guess I don’t really take after her, because my freezer tends to be relatively empty, aside from random containers of stock/ramen broth, frozen dumplings and pierogi. I admit, I store buy frozen chinese dumplings and pierogi for those times that I just don’t feel like cooking. I tell myself it’s because of ease and convenience, but really, I just love the taste of frozen pockets filled with deliciousness. Pierogi are fast, tasty, and ideal for when I let myself get too hungry and become a crazy unthinking monster. (This happens more often than you would believe). It’s Oktoberfest right now and that means two things: beer and sausages. I found an old Gourmet magazine pierogi recipe on epicurious.com and for my first pierogi making experience, it was great.

Jalapeno Popper Wonton Cups I love being a food blogger… You know why? Because I get to try different things for the sake of keeping up with my blog. Before I would just cook the same things over and over but since I started my blog several years ago, I’ve always been looking for different ways to cook things up.

Free Delicious Italian Recipes The local market ran Cornish hens on sale so I took advantage of the opportunity and decided on preparing this Baked Cornish Hen with Cumberland Sauce Recipe for supper. Up until this time I was not real familiar on exactly what Cumberland Sauce consisted of so I guess I kind of prepared this recipe out of curiosity; it kind of reminds me of a sweet and sour sauce, except the ingredients are a little different. Because this is a sauce I don’t normally run into I went to “Wikipedia” to get a little bit of a history on it. “Cumberland sauce is a fruit-based sauce, usually used on non-white meats such as venison, ham, and lamb.
