see what I mean!!!

 Aren't these dumplings beautiful? They are melt in your mouth! Easy to make too! Let me know if you want the recipe. The sauce is the secret!

My sister Sallie is a very talented cook, everything she makes is divine! While on my most recent visit to Austin, she taught me how to make dumplings! Yep, we made all of these! Ok, so I made 1 to her every 10, I just needed a little more practice! What fun it was! Top these with my brother-in-law Luu's sauce that's made with lots of fresh ginger and garlic yum-mo, it doesn't get better than that. That was only part of one meal. I came back to Asheville, feeling completely taken care of, as always, and ready to make some of Sallie's favorite dishes. .. What fun we had, lots of laughter, I can always count on Sallie for the reminder of what joy really is!

Wow, life gets busy, so busy that I forgot, sort of, that I would be away. Though, I thought I could still blog. Then things happened, I left my computer, nook, and other things that I thought I couldn't live without..... for a bit, I was freaking out that I walked out of the house without these things, but realized that I'd be just fine! Breathe!
Ok , I was only in Austin, Tx for several days, but still-you know what I mean!!
Long story long, have some great food pics, my sister Sallie is a fabulous cook. My brother-in-law Luu, is Chinese, (his sauces should be bottled) so the combination of the food Sallie cooked, and the sauces that Luu made were to die for! OMG! Yep, that good!
Will nestle in after a sister trip and do my foodie blog! Thanks for your patience!
Just a reminder and a tease , we will be in France in April, imagine...... talk about food to die for!
