I had a craving for some egg rolls. I bought some wrappers some time ago and found them in the freezer the other day so figured it was a sign to make these! I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to put in them, so I thought of all the best flavors I’d had in egg rolls and what sounded good to my palate and came up with these. Simple, tasty, and only a few ingredients; just how I like to cook!
I had a craving for salt and pepper pork. It’s one of my favorite things to get when I go for Chinese. Unfortunately a lot the Chinese restaurants in my neighborhood don’t serve it. They have this in chicken form, which is delicious, but not what I was craving. I googled what to do to make this delicious dish. I found a great recipe here that I altered a bit to make it more what I was used to eating.
It’s been warm in Chicago this last week. Warm weather makes me crave salad! Nothing is better than a delicious salad in the evening after a warm walk home from the train. Not only does it make me feel like I am being healthy but it is delicious. What makes me feel healthier is making my own dressing — knowing exactly what is in it. This sesame Asian vinaigrette is one of my favorites to make. It is so flavorful.
So over the summer I made some jerky. It was delicious and based off of this dish I am showing today — Bulgogi Pork. When making the jerky my house smelled so awesome, I could only imagine what it would be as a cooked dish, so finally took the time to do it. While I didn’t stray much from my jerky recipe, I did make a few preparation and execution changes. Check it out!
