I love mad scientist mode, it's my only time to play these days and whether or not the experiment works out, we eat. Latest experiments are dumpling filling -- I didn't have time to go hunting for dumpling wrappers--and puto.
The original post was rather long & detailed.
1) Dumpling filling - Meh, didn't like the ground pork but it went well with ramen noodles.
2) Puto, a Filipino snack, a white steamed cake. First recipe using pancake batter, success. I could stop there but I want to know the difference between the cake flour recipe & rice flour recipe. I just received bigger silicone molds. Oh, but I'm out of milk at the moment.
I had to go to Auntie's house to dig up more information to file her final income taxes. While I was digging, I found a folder with her recipes. I'm so happy. I got so much walnut, cinnamon, and sugar from her pantry, now I have a way to use it up and make more space in my freezer. There was one recipe called Food for the Gods. I don't recall Auntie ever serving this to me, but I went & got the dates to make it. I also found the lemon cheesecake I was trying to figure out.
Friends have been raving about their air fryers. It's just an air convection oven. I had one in the 90's and bought into the accessories, like I'm buying into the Instant Pot accessories. Loved the 90's version, bought a new one when the motor broke but something changed. It was louder & crumbs would blow around the kitchen! I only still have it because I have the accessories. I got the smallest one. I did (frozen) coconut shrimp & (frozen) fish fillet tonight. So quiet! So crispy! It's a keeper. I'm getting rid of the old jet oven & everything that went with it.
