1 lb ground pork (raw, can also use ground turkey)
2 cups diced cabbage (I use coleslaw mix)
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1/4 tsp. black pepper

Combine all ingredients in a bowl.  Mix with hands until well blended. 

One package potsticker wrappers. (these can be found at Wongs market on 100th street between Douglas and Hickman). 

Dip wrappers in water, set aside for a couple of seconds to absorb moisture. (I usually dip 3-4, then go back and fill the first wrapper that I dipped)
Place about 1 Tbsp. filling in center of potsticker wrapper. Fold wrapper in half and make 6 creases at top of wrapper to seal.  Place small amount of oil in hot skillet.  Dip bottom only of potsticker in hot oil. Once bottoms have browned, put 1/2 cup water in skillet and cover.  Cook for about 5 minutes or until all the water has evaporated from skillet. Serve hot with dipping sauce.


1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 tsp sugar
1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar (I have used regular vinegar and it tastes fine)
1 clove or 1 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 tsp. sesame oil

Combine all ingredients until well mixed. Enjoy!

Stuffed French Toast

Stuffed French Toast

1 loaf French Bread
1 8 oz. pkg cream cheese
1/4 c. jam (any flavor you like)

Cut french bread long ways like a hot dog bun. Let cream cheese soften and blend it together with the jam. Spread it between the cut bread. It'll make a pretty thick layer. Cover it and put it back in the fridge overnight.

Slice it like regular sliced bread and dip in egg, or *buttermilk (I dip mine in buttermilk). Sprinkle cinnamon if you like and fry it on a skillet.

Buttermilk Syrup

1 cube butter
1 c sugar
1/2 c. *buttermilk
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tst. vanilla or maple flavoring (I've always used vanilla)

Melt together butter, sugar, buttermilk and baking soda. Bring to a boil and let boil for 5 minutes or until it turns a light golden color. Remove from heat and mix in the vanilla or maple.
*It really foams up while cooking so make sure you have a few inches of head space in the pan so it doesn't boil over.


1 3/4 cup milk
1 tbsp. cream of tartar sauce.

Stir and let sit for 5 minutes
