The Xuanwu Lake Water Lilies Collection

The bursting pink and mint green beads represent water lilies gracefully adorning Xuanwu Lake in Nanjing, Jiangsu, China, as if part of a Monet painting. I hope you enjoy the photographs of my original earring collection, and my pictures of the beautiful Xuanwu Lake! Please compare the pictures and let me know if you think I captured in my unique earring collection, the exquisite afternoon my husband and I had at Xuanwu Lake last summer.

The earrings are for sale. They are $10 a pair. The entire Xuanwu Lake set of earrings is priced at $50. Please contact me at if you are interested in this whimsical masterpiece collection.

Wide Noodles For Shastya!

I was trying to think of something tasty and nutritious to make for Shastya for lunch. We had lots of green vegetables in the fridge, so I wanted to incorporate them into our meal. I remembered we had some leftover wonton wrappers so I decided to cut them into wide strips to make wide noodles! Anthony and I had had wide noodles in China and loved them! Shastya's and my lunch could not have been more perfect, complete with Shastya slurping down her noodles! Our veggies included zucchini, asparagus, and broccoli.

Vegetable Lo Mein

Pork Buns & Dumplings

I made up my own recipe for the dough for my pork buns this time. This was my best dough yet for baozi/ steamed buns! And yes, I will share my recipe. Next time I think I will food process my filling so that there are not chunks, and roll it into meat balls before forming dough balls around it.

Baozi Dough:

1 Cup Warm Water
2 Tsp Bread Machine Yeast
3 TB Granulated Sugar
2 3/4 Cup Bread Flour
1 Tsp Salt
1 TB Oil

1. Combine first three ingredients until frothy, about two minutes.
2. Add the rest of the ingredients.
3. Use the dough setting on your bread machine.
