Mr Big’s Steamed Dumplings


We see steamed dumplings as a meal, albeit one we eat with our fingers: dipping a dumpling in the plum sauce, popping it in your mouth and then reaching for the next one. Unless someone is cooking Peking Duck somewhere in the kitchen, we don’t want anything else.

Apple Pie – Easy Pastry Option


I usually don’t put up two recipe posts in one week, but this seems to be the month for pies. A friend gave me this recipe a few weeks ago. When I say gave I mean he posted a pic on Facebook of one of the pies he and his wife had just made and it looked so good I insisted he give me the recipe. Same thing, I say.

Grandma’s Rhubarb Pie


Of all the pies I’ve made with Grandma lately, this is the one I want to do again really soon. Tracey, on the other hand, has a hankering for Grandma’s Spinach Pie, so you can guess which of these two pies I’ve made twice more in the three weeks since Grandma has been away.
