Mixed-Bag Mondays: I’m not sure how to feel

The title says it all. I am not sure how to feel about these two foods today. One was something that I thought “oh I might make this again!” and then later wasn’t as much a fan. The other I thought “oh, this is kind of bleh” but then it improved over time.

Let’s start with the initial success and follow-up failure:

Wayback Wednesdays: Sesame Chicken

Sometimes I remake older recipes and don’t enjoy it as much. Sometimes I make too many changes, maybe tastes have changed, maybe I just have an off day for cooking? But this was one of the times when I think I made it better, even or especially with the changes I made.

What has changed since the start?

Pizza Bread

I was flipping through my Mooncakes and Milkbread cookbook looking for the char siu bao recipe and I happened to see this recipe. I had to make it right away. We have been enjoying it for breakfast, because why not find a socially acceptable way to eat pizza at breakfast? I mean, I used to eat leftover slices of pizza cold for breakfast, but my husband K gives me looks about it, haha.

I know it browned a bit too much, which is why I put in to check it sooner in the recipe below…it still tasted good, though.
