    These egg rolls had a fresher taste than my regular recipe. I think it is because the vegetables are not cooked ahead of time. These were great. I did not like working with the won ton wrappers, they are too small---egg roll wrappers are much better. I used chicken and also added some shredded carrot. I will be replacing my recipe with this one. Thanks


<p>I am a writer, actor, artist and director of stage plays (not necessarly good, or in that order) &amp; father of six, who started cooking because none of my ex-wifes could. I was owner/operator of SouthWest Outfitters, a mail order spice company that specialized in South West/Mexican spice mixes and recipes (prior to the internet, if you can remember that long ago).&nbsp; &nbsp;My passions are food, eating, cooking, food (did I say that already?), drinking and collecting recipies. Many of my recipies are&nbsp;from scratch origional classics, like the real&nbsp;margarita and authentic Cesar salad.&nbsp; &nbsp;We also raise and show Austrailan Shepards (we have 7).</p> <p>&nbsp;Between cast parties (from the stage plays) and dog shows (which we host at our property) we often find ourselves cooking for dozens of folks. I hope you will find some of my favorite recipes useful and full of flavor.</p>
