Just a note that using Everything Bagel seasoning in lieu of salt in this soft pretzel recipe yields delicious results.

Pistachio Cheese Ball

This was one of our appetizers for Thanksgiving. Lots of flavor to it. My sister ended up making it using the recipe I found and she did a great job.

Welsh Rarebit

I almost didn’t make these for the party because I wasn’t confident in my ability to make them mostly ahead of time. But it wasn’t a problem at all. Just pre-make the sauce, and then spread it on toasts and broil when it’s party time. So good.

Gyoza-Stuffed Wings

I was excited to attempt these since we had a similar dish at an izakaya in Tokyo. I definitely haven’t mastered deboning wings, but these still tasted good. I used leftover (frozen) filling from the gyoza I made a few weeks ago.

Gyoza

A successful Japanese recipe on the books! To be fair, I also made negamaki less successfully – since mine fell apart, I’m going to leave this one off the website, but note for Japanese Challenge tracking purposes.

These gyoza were a big hit with my friend Rachel and her two kids, who love dumplings. They aren’t terribly hard, either – just time consuming, especially to wrap. This is from my Japanese Soul Cooking book.

Homemade Egg Rolls

I finally made egg rolls! I’ve had these bookmarked for something like two years, but the deep frying step has always been kind of daunting. I also cheated and had John roll them while I was working on other stuff. Really delicious! I did not include the pork when I made these because my friend who was coming over is a pescetarian, but they work fine without it.

Kalua Pig Cabbage Wraps

Kind of had mixed feelings about this pressure cooker recipe on its own – pretty plain. But I thought it worked pretty well in the wraps, so maybe worth revisiting? The meat also held up well for later in the week for tacos, quesadillas, etc. I might steam the cabbage next time before wrapping so it was a bit more pliable.
