Sichuan Wontons, plus 20 Recipe Ideas for Chinese New Year
If you've never had Sichuan wontons before, and you're a big fan of spicy food, this is one dish that will surely go on regular rotation after you try it once. This is one of my favorite Sichuan dishes of all time, with a deliciously savory, tangy, and spicy sauce that is positively addictive. Unlike with Cantonese wontons, which usually goes into a soup with or without noodles, you just boil the wontons and drizzle a chili oil mixture over them. I adore this sauce: chili oil (store-bought or homemade), dark or balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, Sichuan pepper, and garlic, just mixed together. It's spicy and numbing and tart and sweet. And you can easily make a big batch to share with family and friends, should they happen to stop by.
Chicken with Sweet Potato & Plantain Cakes and Pineapple Mango Chutney
I have had this recipe hinding out in the back of my recipe file for some time now and finally to give it a try. It looked easy enough for a weeknight meal and after a full day of cleaning and organizing for the up and coming move I needed easy. The original recipe called for a sweet potato and a russet potato but I thought it would be more interesting to sub the russet for a plantain, it was a good call.
The Comfort of Eggs in a Basket
Eggs in a basket was the first meal I ever cooked. I was in 5th grade, and it was a Sunday morning at my best friend's house after a sleepover. We woke up hungry, and for some reason his parents weren't home. This confused me--my parents would never do that--but more important than confusion was the fact that I was terribly hungry, and I didn't see how that problem was going to be solved, since his house never had any cereal in it. "We'll make eggs in a basket," my friend said, pulling out a loaf of bread, a jug of oil, and a carton of eggs.

Orange Chicken Recipe
Today I’m back with yet another Chinese-American dish – Orange Chicken. It seems as though you can find orange chicken almost anywhere you want to eat these days. It is most commonly found at fast food restaurants, but don’t worry, this is so much better than anything you will find there. What really makes this recipe stand out is the combination of both orange and lemon juice. Once again we are also using the deep dryer for cooking the battered chicken.
From the molten yolk and bacon crunch of a hand-held breakfast, to the gooey charm of grilled cheese for lunch, nothing matches the simple pleasures of well-made sandwiches. They're quick to assemble, infinitely adaptable, easy to eat, and immediately satisfying—the very definition of good food. The 25 sandwiches you're about to meet can be thrown together during the average basketball halftime or, with practice, during the seventh-inning stretch. (Who needs hot dogs, anyway?) Use each recipe as a basic road map, but bring your talent for finding creative routes. You'll easily reach your final destination: a full belly and a satisfied smile.
Bacon, Egg & Cheese Breakfast Tarts
Hey, it’s us again, the Puff Pastry Committee! I swear to the cooking gods I didn’t intend to get hooked on another puff pastry recipe so soon, but in all honesty I’d seen this idea in a recent Food Network magazine and wanted to make them like crazy, before we became puff-pastry-crazed. And given that we had made zero plans on what to cook up to the weekend we were cooking this, it was this or…I know not what. Luckily, as we usually are here, this is yet another fantastic recipe for our All the Delicious Things One Can Pile Onto Puff Pastry series.

Mini German Pancakes
Here’s a fun breakfast you can make this weekend. My family love German Pancakes (at our house they are called Hootenannies). So when I saw the idea of making mini ones at a site called Gimme Some Oven I had to try them. Her recipe is basically the same as the one I make in my 9 x 13 pan, but you add the butter to the batter instead of the pan. She also adds vanilla and orange zest.
no-bake energy bites
I probably should have poured a nice stiff drink recipe for you all on this loveliest of lovely tax days. Especially for my fellow small business owners who just gave half of their revenue back to the government. Good grief, I won’t even go there. Instead though, I thought I’d offer my idea of a more comforting alternative.
