I am not any kind of a food blogger. I don't even cook all that much. But when there is something this good to be eaten, then it must be shared.
A few weeks ago we had our fun and wonderful Chinese friends (along with a hoard of other guests) to the lake house and Penny - a Chinese mom of two and entreprenuer extraordinaire - cooked for us the most fabulous dish. I'm a picky eater in general, but this was so up my alley I asked her for explicit instructions. Thankfully, it's easy to make and she found all the necessary ingredients at Wal-Mart. (When she makes this at her home in San Francisco with authentic spices from the Chinese markets, I can't imagine how good it must taste.)
