  1. These were amazing! way more impressed with them than i thought i would be. they will be a regular snack around my house. we added a little finly choped white onions,mushrooms and bean sprouts to the mix. was soooooo good diped in a little spicy mayo. my kids devoured them!
  2. ok. i made two of adjustments here. first, i use spring roll wrappers, so i roll them instead of shaping them into pancakes. second, i didn't fry them. i put them on baking tray, sprayed using olive oil, and bake them at 200 for approx. 15 minutes. other than those, these pancakes are great! i also made a sauce from equal part of soy sauce and mirin, with a dash of chili powder.
  3. YUM! So easy and quick! I used 24 won ton wrappers, 1/2 cup scallions(all I had) and added 1 large red jalapeno. Gave it a festive Christmas look! I cut in half on the angle making 24 appetizers. You do need to use more oil for the frying. Thanks for a great treat!
  4. I served these as an appetizer for a chinese dinner party we hosted this week. I cut each pancake in half and drizzled with a blend of rice vinegar, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Everyone really enjoyed them. I will make these crunchy treats again. Thanks Gay.
  5. This is definately company fare! They are so quick to make and sooooo tasty. I didn't even bother with the soy sauce as there was no need! A great alternative to greasy potato chips that will become a staple snack in my house. Thanks so much for posting them, Gay!


I'm really just learning how to cook, but I hope that my skills at eating will really guide me in this endeavor. ;-) I think that sharing recipes on the internet is better than any cookbook. Of course, I founded Recipezaar, so I might be a little biased.
