CHA SIU BAO - STEAMED BBQ PORK BUNS by Linda Tay Esposito

The char siu bao is a dimsum staple. Sweet, juicy bits of Chinese bbq pork oozing out of the soft, sweet bun. The secret to creating that char siu bao taste is to use dried onions (McCormicks).

My Homemade Apple Butter with Apple Schnapps

My Homemade Apple Butter with Apple Schnapps by Robyn Savoie

Two autumn standards, pumpkin and apple. I joined Schnapps Liquor with apple in this lovely spread. Apple Schnapps really adds a surprising element to this. This spread is wonderful on toast, pancakes, waffles and in pumpkin pie! I might experiment one of these days and see how it would work in traditional apple pie
