In the Oven, On the Stove

Lots of cooking this week.

Bread. Beautiful, crusty bread.

Chai without the chai. Chai actually means "tea" and this mug has no tea. It's milk with chai spices and a smidge of sugar, and it's delicious on a cold day. No caffeine, just delicious, warming flavor and scent.

Chicken and mushroom pot pies. Made a great filling. Messed with hand pies and pot pies. Pot pies win! They'll be less fragile driving down the road in the truck!

Dumplings. Favorite dumpling restaurant? Din Tai Fung. Favorite dumplings I've made and will be on Orca Eats' menu? Classic potstickers - pork with ginger. Maybe a vegetable dumpling is next.
