Doggy Dumplings

These are carved turnips, stuffed with minced veggies, then steamed.

As a child I had a hard time even biting the ears off chocolate bunnies at Easter, but I had an instant urge to make these little doggy dumplings. They’re from a dog magazine called Wan, which is Japanese for bow-wow.

These are little nikuman steamed dumplings, stuffed with a chicken mixture

These are just steamed bread. You have to let them rise on a little cardboard cutout that they give you instructions how to make.

Jonelle Patrick is the author of the Only In Tokyo mystery series. And guess what? They’re finally coming out in PAPERBACK!

More Nightshade book goodness here, in case you think you might want to, you know, read it or something
