Like any recipe I make for the first time, it took forever and made a huge mess, but it was turning out pretty good! And then I made a huge mistake--I went against my better judgment and used an ingredient I know I hate: the recipe called for a teaspoon of white pepper, and my logical brain was thinking 1) this lady work for The Food Network, she must know what she's doing, and 2) a teaspoon in that amount of filling isn't that much, right?
Well, it was enough. White pepper is so offensive to me, I don't even understand how anyone likes it. In any case, though, Erica seemed to like them. I was okay with them, when I used a lot of the dipping sauce. I really want to try this again, because the combination of shitake mushrooms, carrots, cabbage, onions, and other veggies seemed really good. Even the homemade wrappers, if a little big, were tasty.

Tonight we hit another roadblock--I was all set to make a mushroom stroganoff, but I forgot to buy a key ingredient. Better luck tomorrow, maybe?
