Wanted to share this beautiful birthday RAK card from Karen Haman, it was the only hand made one I got that day! What a lovely surprise! Thanks, Karen, for thinking of me! (and being on time, wow!) :)
Also, my husband surprised me that night with a fabulous cooking couples class at Central Market, Chinese food! I get cravings for Chinese all the time but since we don't really have those recipes in our repertoire or the right tools, we always just run for take out. But not anymore!
Here I am with chef, teacher and author Dorothy Huang. (She's actually about the same size as I am, I just have my big shoes on!) ;) I bought her book Chinese Cuisine, Made Simple that night and I am so anxious to try all the recipes, will be back to share what I like about the book, but in a nutshell it completely demystifies the process and it so easy to read and understand!
She was delightful and we really enjoyed getting to be hands on in this class. We had crab puffs9so fun wrapping the won tons, like origami!), honey walnut shrimp, Mu Shu Pork, and a veggie dish with baby Bok Choy and baby corn and shiitake mushrooms. I'll be back to share pics of those drool worthy dishes. (Unfortunately, I didn't take my phone I'd just use my husbands' camera phone for photos so I didn't have to mess with carrying a purse, but I didn't realize my phone takes much better than his, rats!) I came right home and ordered a wok and spider strainer on Amazon (these are the best ones, I've already done all the research for you, hee!) so as soon as they arrive, I'll be getting busy in the kitchen!
Okay, more later! Have a good one!
