Wonton Style Pizza

Asian Delights! We love Chinese food in our house, and I frequently make fried rice and Kung Pao Chicken.  I thought we would try something different this time around. I really can’t wait to try this.  When I was looking over at Fleishman’s today for my preferred pizza dough recipe, this caught my eye, and I decided we had to have it.

Risotto Rice Balls with Garlic Basil Tomato Mayonnaise

Recipes in this Post Risotto Rice Balls Garlic Basil Tomato Mayonnaise When I made Risotto with Mushrooms and Saffron on Sunday, I had risotto left over. My friend Josef called me and said he would like to bring a friend over to discuss some business, and I offered to make lunch.

I looked at the recipe on the Internet, but I did not have Ragu. I did, however, have left over Italian Fennel Pork Chops that I thought I could make into a nice stuffing. I started making my balls on Wednesday afternoon, and recorded a video showing how to make the Risotto Balls. We had them for lunch yesterday. They were wonderful with a toss green salad and ice cold sweet tea.

I love to read, and I love having hard cover books sitting in my library where I can read them any time I want. There are a few books that I read a long time ago, that I knew I loved, and I love rereading them! I had the fortune of going to the Burbank Centennial celebration , and was able to pick up some out of print books to add to my collection. I had to be careful, because the car was several blocks from the bookstore, and books get heavy! Jeff Smith Jeff Smith’s Frugal Gourmet Series. I used to love watching the Frugal Gourmet when it was on PBS. No matter what Jeff Smith did, … Continue reading
