The easiest way to poach eggs!

Time to make a confession: I never got really good at poaching eggs! And since I’m a schooled chef, that really is a thingy. But, I’ve found the best trick ever and poaching eggs never will be a hassle anymore.

Meet my new recipe: Chinese style dumpling duck soup with bok choy!

Playing with some leftovers, I invented a recipe for Japanese escarole and tofu hot pot with udon noodles.
