Will New “Mid-Calorie” Snacks Be Good for Your Mid Section ?
Low-cal diet food gets a bad rap … and let’s face it, that’s mostly because you’re hungry again about ten seconds after you eat it. What about a little bit of compromise? Food companies are now targeting the “I’m on a diet but not too much of a diet” consumer by offering new “mid-calorie” snacks
How to Make Fresh Spring Rolls – Authentic is as Authentic Does
Based on the YouTube comments appearing under the newly posted spring rolls video, lots of people missed the part about this not trying to be a specific recipe, but simply a demo featuring the magic that is damp, rice paper wrappers. Don’t get me wrong; I love the “authentic” spring rolls I so often order at my friendly, neighborhood Vietnamese restaurant. Loaded with sweet shrimp, and bursting with vermicelli noodles, they are among the most delicious things ever invented. However, I do reserve the right to soak rice paper wrappers in water, and… (I hope you’re sitting down for this) ...not make those! What you see here is just what I had on hand that day, and the next time I do a batch of these, who the heck knows what they’ll encase. If I have a point, that’s it. Speaking of soaking in water, many commenters suggested that I dunk these in warm water for just a few seconds to hydrate, instead of the longer dip in cold water. I’ve tried both methods, and had more issues with the warmer/faster approach. They seemed to get too rubbery, too fast, which I found made the rolling harder. Anyway, to each his own, and that goes for water temperature, filling ingredients, and dipping sauce. By the way, there are no ingredient amounts below, since that’s up to you entirely. You should be able to get “rice paper wrappers” at any large grocery store with an Asian food section , but if not, they’re easily found online. I hope you give these, or something similar, a try soon. Enjoy! Click here to see our peanut sauce recipe video !
