More Chinese Starters Ideas
There are lots of vegetarian Chinese starters you can make. What about homemade egg rolls or spring rolls with cabbage, mushrooms and bean sprouts inside or vegetarian dumplings?
Stuffed mushrooms or zucchini work well and you can use spiced rice as the filling. Chinese chicken wings are great at a buffet and you can add Chinese ingredients like water chestnuts, oriental mushrooms or bamboo shoots to any salad recipe to give it a flavour of China.
Recipe for Chinese Crepes
Cook cubes of fresh pumpkin in vegetable stock, adding other vegetables such as onion, leek, potato, carrot or turnip if you wish. If it does not appear that there is enough liquid in the recipe, review it again. Some vegetables have liquid that they will release while cooking. Other ingredients, such as meat, release juices, as well. Remember not to stuff your crockpot. An ideal amount is two-thirds full. If it is less full than that, it will take less time for the meal to cook. These tips will help you become familiar with your crockpot and its performance.
Chicken And Crockpots
Whether you feel like making barbecued chicken wings, chicken and dumplings, or chicken enchiladas, there is a crockpot recipe for it. Buy several whole chickens when the price is down. Cut them up and freeze the parts in separate bags. Your family will enjoy this delicious meal. Serve it over steamed rice or crisp Oriental noodles. There was that recipe you made a couple weeks ago that everyone loved, where is it? You dig through handwritten papers, torn out magazine pages, and tattered index cards. Stop and read a card you’re you remember now you were dying to try 6 months back. Somehow when it came to your home filing system you just never got to the kitchen. Now is the time to take action and get all those recipes organized!
Paper Recipes: As I’m sure you have found printed recipes come in many shapes and sizes. Don’t put back recipes you aren’t going to use again now that you have everything spread out. Recipes you didn’t like can just go into the recycling. If it is a recipe you still want to try I would suggest one of two options. You could admit you aren’t really going to try it and recycle it, or you can create a “recipes to try” category in your home filing system. This category is great when you are looking for something different or exciting! Then when you finally try them for the first time you can either file them into one of categories you created or recycle them!
They both allow flexibility for sizes of recipes, and give you the ability to add in pages where you need them as your collection grows and changes. They will easily stay open while you cook, and can be easily cleaned off if you spill food on your recipe.
Electronic Recipes: Keeping our recipes on computers as oppose to on paper is becoming more and more common. When starting a home filing system for your electronic recipes you have two choices. Are you going to store them on your computer or online?
Think of the daily frustration that could be eliminated by organizing getting your recipes. Take the time to organize today!
