In case you missed it, I have shared some interesting updates through the campaign as well. I got a little person in “Who Are the Two Americans in China?” and shared a recipe inspired by my recent trip to Vietnam in “It’s Over 9,000! Enjoy This Vietnamese-Inspired Dumpling!” Both of those updates are available to everyone, not just backers, so check them out and let me know what you think.

I’m so excited for how well this campaign has gone, and I can’t wait to collect the backer-submitted recipes (check out the $40 reward level!) and put the finishing touches on the book. But it’s not over yet! We still need all the support we can get during the final days, so please support us by backing Crazy Dumplings II: Even Dumplinger or by sharing the campaign on Facebook and Twitter to help us get the word out!

This is such a busy time for me. Monday is Chinese New Year, so be sure to join the Chinese New Year Blog Hop. I’ll be spending the holiday in Vietnam. It will be my first time there so I’m very excited. I can’t wait to come back with a ton of new pictures and maybe a few dumpling recipes! Be sure to check out our Giveaways page, because we have a couple of things going on there and a couple more will be added next week as part of the Blog Hop.

Of course, all of this is on top of hopefully welcoming our first child this summer. I’ll post an update about that soon. I wish I had more to share on that, but all the waiting and paperwork just make for terribly boring writing; however, I am sure some of my readers would like an update. So stay tuned!

Sweet and Spicy Salmon Dumpling Recipe

Sweet and Spicy Salmon Dumpling Recipe

Hi everyone! Today I want to share a really yummy dumpling recipe with you! I already shared this with my backers on Kickstarter, so if you want to get a hundred more dumpling recipes, be sure to check out the campaign!

You can find the dumpling wrapper recipe here.

This flavorful recipe is sweet with a kick of pepper. Sure to be your new favorite!

Sweet and Spicy Salmon Dumplings

Crazy-Dumplings-2_03a

This recipe says you can use cooked salmon (maybe from a leftover meal at home or from a restaurant), but you can also used fresh salmon. The dumplings will get hot enough when fried to cook the salmon. You can also use canned salmon in a pinch. 

¾ cup honey
¼ cup soy sauce
¼ cup brown sugar, packed
¼ cup pineapple juice
Juice of 1 lemon
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp cayenne pepper
Dash of paprika
Dash of garlic powder
1 cup cooked salmon, chopped or shredded
12 dumpling wrappers
1 cup of oil, if frying

  1. In a saucepan, add all filling ingredients except salmon and heat over medium heat. Stir occasionally until sauce begins to boil. Simmer uncovered for 15 minutes until syrupy.
  2. Remove from heat and blend in salmon.
  3. Drain sauce from salmon and set aside.
  4. Spoon salmon mixture into dumpling wrappers and pinch closed.
  5. Cook dumplings.
    • To fry dumplings, preheat oil in a wok for 30 seconds on high heat, then lower heat to medium. Cook dumplings on each side for about 3 minutes or until golden brown.
    • To steam dumplings, place in a steamer basket or on an elevated plate in a wok over water on high heat for about 10 minutes.
  6. Always cut a dumpling open to make sure it is cooked through.
  7. Serve hot with excess sauce for dipping.

Crazy Dumplings II: Even Dumplinger is now on Kickstarter!

Dumplings II Front CroppedDumplings from around the world and the most unique combinations of ingredients come together in Crazy Dumplings II: Even Dumplinger. From Thailand, Vietnam, India, and of course across China, traditional snacks are given a new twist when stuffed into dumpling wrappers. Sweet, savory, spicy, and all delicious, Crazy Dumplings II: Even Dumplinger will take you where your taste buds have never been before!

After the success of last year’s Crazy Dumplings Cookbook, I can’t get dumplings off my mind. Every time I come across a new recipe, the first thing I think is “how can I turn this into a dumpling?” So I’m back with dozens of crazy new dumpling recipes you will want to try!

China’s favored dish, the dumpling (jiaozi in Chinese), can be found on every street corner, in every restaurant, and in every kitchen in China, but they are all pretty much prepared the same way: a bit of meat, some garlic and ginger, and a bit of vegetables if you’re lucky. Even a visit to the freezer section at any grocery store displays hundreds of packages of dumplings that all look and taste the same.

But the dumpling is so versatile! Have you ever tried stuffing a dumpling with chicken? Pesto? Egg tart filling? No? Hardly anyone has! My cookbook, Crazy Dumplings II, takes this simple staple food and prepares it in ways you never thought possible! From Avocado Chipotle Dumplings to Lamb Pomegranate Dumplings to Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dumplings, a world of foods is available to you in an easy dumpling wrapper with Crazy Dumplings.

About the Book

Crazy Dumplings II will contain dozens of new recipes plus dumpling recipes submitted by backers, the dumpling wrapper recipe, and several original sauce and dip recipes such as Avocado Lime Sauce and Honey Chipotle Sauce. There are dumpling recipes for appetizers, main courses, and desserts. I have done my best to include some vegetarian recipes, but dumplings are so versatile, you can turn almost any recipe in the book vegetarian, and the book will explain how!

About the Campaign

There are lots of new Backer Rewards, including an updated Amazing Dumplinger and adorable Plushy Dumplings!

Happy International Authors’ Day!

Happy International Authors’ Day!

Today is the first ever International Authors’ Day! It’s a day to show appreciation for all of the authors you know and love. ebook cover trimmedI am very proud that I am able to now tell people that I’m a writer. I haven’t made a lot of money (yet!), but I have decided to devote my life to my craft and it is finally paying off. My first cookbook, Crazy Dumplings, was published last year and I’ll be publishing volume two in a couple of months. I am going to the Hong Kong Book Fair this weekend to try and find a publisher for my children’s book. My first full-length romance will be published in March 2016. I am very nearly done with my first full-length novel set in China. I love writing this blog and I have written for magazines, newspapers, and blogs all over the world. I love what I do and I hope I can make a full-time career out of it.

Authors work really hard, many times spending months and years crafting their stories, countless hours trying to find an agent or publisher, and then countless hours marketing. It is often a thankless job. One of the biggest ways you can show appreciation for the authors you read is by leaving a review on Amazon and Goodreads. You can read all of my reviews here. And expect many more to come! I’ve been reading like crazy lately, far faster than I have been able to write reviews!

IADI would also like to send out some specific thanks. First of all to Ray Hecht, my first friend in Shenzhen and the person who invited me into the local writers circle. I would also like to thank the women of Women Writers of Shenzhen for their support.

Please sign up for my mailing list to receive a FREE SAMPLE COPY of The Crazy Dumplings Cookbook.

International Authors’ Day and this blog hop were organized by b00k r3vi3ws. Please visit them and let them know how much you appreciate this event!

Want a free gift? Just use the handy Rafflecopter entry form below to win a FREE COPY of Empress Dowager Cixi: The Concubine Who Launched Modern China by Jung Chang. Every entry wins!

The Perfect Christmas Present

Amazing Dumplinger
The Amazing Dumplinger

My awesome in-laws just finished mailing out all of the rewards from my Crazy Dumplings Kickstarter, and we had a few items leftover. So I made 10 gift sets that include 1 paperback book, 1 dumplinger, and 1 paper-cutting bookmark. For only $21.95, you get all three items! The books are retailing for $20.95 on Amazon, so by buying them directly from me in this package, you are almost getting the dumplinger and bookmark for free. It is such a great deal!

The gift set is only available for shipping in the 48 continental United States. Sorry, but I’m still figuring out how to work the shipping options and I don’t know if any international packages would arrive in time for Christmas.

You can also purchase the eBook version of Crazy Dumplings in a variety of formats.

I want to thank everyone who has helped me get my book published. I am very proud of it and so happy it is now getting into people’s hands! Happy Holidays, everyone, and may your dumplings ever be crazy!

Planning the Perfect Thanksgiving Dinner While Living Abroad – The Pumpkin Pie

Planning the Perfect Thanksgiving Dinner While Living Abroad – The Pumpkin Pie

Hi everyone. Welcome to my sixth post dedicated to helping you plan the perfect Thanksgiving dinner while living abroad. I first wrote about making sure you have all the right utensils and about how to prepare the all-important turkey. I followed up with how to make stuffing from scratch, how to make a delicious river of gravy, how to make mashed potatoes, and how to make drop biscuits. Today, we are going to round out your Thanksgiving feast with a pumpkin pie!

First off, I’m not going to talk about how to make the crust. This is for 2 reasons. 1) Crusts are hard to make but should not be hard to purchase. Even though “pie” is not popular in China, egg tarts are. So just use egg tart shells and make mini-pumpkin pies. 2) You can completely bypass the shell altogether by using dumpling wrappers! Why not bring a little China to your Thanksgiving dinner table?

We are going to make the pumpkin pie filling from scratch because pumpkins are usually easy to find and the pumpkin puree is not that hard to make.

dessert dumplingsWhat you need:

1 small pumpkin (1 cup pumpkin puree)
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp allspice powder
½ tsp ginger powder
1 egg
6 oz evaporated milk
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
12 dumpling wrappers (made from scratch or purchased) or 12 egg tart shells
1 cup of oil for frying

Preparing the Pumpkin

  1. Cut the pumpkin in half and remove the seeds. Don’t be afraid to scrape the sides and get all that stringy stuff out.
  2. Place the pumpkin into a steamer basket on the stove (you can cut the pieces smaller if they don’t quite fit). Steam pumpkin, covered, over high heat for 20-30 minutes or until it is soft.
  3. Scoop softened pumpkin meat out of the rind. Puree pumpkin meat in a blender until smooth.
  4. Done! You will only need 1 cup of puree for this recipe. If you have extra puree, you can freeze it and save it for future dumplings or increase the rest of the recipe to make lots of dumplings (not like they will go to waste since they will be eaten up so quickly!).

Making the pumpkin pie filling for dumplings or egg tart shells

  1. Mix together 1 cup of pumpkin puree with the sugar, spices, egg, and evaporated milk.
  2. For pumpkin pie dumplings:
    • Spoon mixture into dumpling wrappers and pinch closed. If the mixture is too runny to work with, put the mixture into the refrigerator for about 20 minutes to set up.
    • To fry dumplings, preheat oil for 30 seconds on high heat, then lower heat to medium. Cook dumplings on each side for about 3 minutes or until golden brown.
  3. If you are using egg tart shells:
    • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius)
    • Fill the shells about 3/4 of the way full with pumpkin pie filling.
    • Bake for about 30 minutes or until the tops are golden.
  4. Serve hot or chilled.

You can find the Pumpkin Pie Dumpling recipe, along with almost a hundred more, in my cookbook Crazy Dumplings, now available on Amazon!

We Did It! Crazy Dumplings Are Coming!

we did it

We did it! We reached our funding goal in only 7 days, but then we completely blew past any expectations to exceed $9,000 (including a few backers from outside Kickstarter) and got almost 450 backers! Woo hoo! There is still a lot of work ahead. I am waiting to get recipe ideas from backers and I will have to test them out, so it might still be a month or two before the final version of the book is ready, but you can look at past posts to see some of the dumpling recipes already out there. I have just sent out the backer surveys, so I am looking forward to getting all the information organized and other thank you gifts ready to send out.
