What a lovely post. Your dumplings look like they were made by a pro. It was a fun challenge. I hope you have a good day.


brava, sembrano ricamati, son difficili da farsi quelle pieghe?


Beautiful job on the dumplings! They came out perfecto and look like they came from a high end asian restaurant!


Your dumplings are so cute! They look perfect. You had a lot going on there, what with gnocchi, too?! Wow. And garlic scape pesto -- yum.


You shaped them beautifully, Siomona!


Siomana = Simona!



Very nice!



Those words are so beautiful and sound softer than the English versions.
Your dumplings/ravioli are lovely. The cabbage and fava bean and mushroom filling is a wonderful one to use with these!


Mamma mia, these sound delicious.


Great job, Simona! And thanks for visiting my site too! I agree - I should've made the wrappers a bit more thin. I may do another round tonight and try rolling them even more.

Jen Yu

Such pretty potstickers you made. I love the look of them! Great job on the challenge this month. Looking forward to seeing more of your challenges in the future :)

Lori Lynn @ Taste With The Eyes

The filling sounds great.

Simona Carini

Thanks Mary. It was a pleasant surprise that I was able to make them look nice.

Ciao Astro. No, non e' difficile. Le foto sul post di Jen erano molto chiare e non mi e' stato difficile imitare i suoi gesti.

Thanks Lisa. I must say I was pretty proud of myself for the result of my first try.

Ciao Lisa. I would not recommend to follow my example. I was a bit stressed out. The garlic scape was amazing: bright green, delicate in flavor and yet distinctly garlicky. Too bad scape season is over.

Thanks, Ivonne.

Thanks, Paz.

Hi Elle. I liked the filling and ate the leftover as a side dish the following night. Not traditional, but it worked.

They are Ivy and I recommend them, as they are also fun to make.

Hi Kenna, my pleasure. I will certainly make them again and need to cut smaller pieces of dough, so the dumplings are smaller.

Dear Jen, it was a great challenge and your detailed instructions and photos were perfect. Thanks again.

Hi Lori Lynn. I liked it: one of these spur of the moment combinations that magically works.


Your pot stickers are perfect looking, Simona - such precise pleating. I once watched a dumpling maker in a Chinatown shop window work his magic. I was completely fascinated...and intimidated. Your post gives me courage to try my own.

Simona Carini

I was also a bit intimidated, but then things just flowed nicely, thanks to Jen's photos. I am sure you'll find that, once you get the rhythm of it, it is not as difficult a process as it may seem. As you know, I am not particularly skilled and yet I did quite well, considering that it was my first time. I do hope you try.
