RECIPE BACKSTORY
I LOVE the flavors of Chinese food, but prefer to make my own (I know what goes into it!!) So, I have experimented with all sorts of flavors and dough, and I discovered a love of Wonton Skins - they are very versatile, easy to use, and can be adapted for sweet or savory dishes, sauteed, deep fried or boiled in a soup. More to come on the savory use of wonton skins.....
