Alicia P.

Honey your egg rolls are the BEST!!! You rule, babe.

Hey thanks, Andy! Think I might just whip some of those up for our Superbowl enjoyment this weekend. Love the jersey. Go BEARS!
(which is not something I thought I would ever be typing on the Posie site)


wow, you cook for Alicia?! Can't wait to show this post to my fiance!!
sorry, no eggroll tips here, but they look scrumptious, i don't think you need any tips!
your corgi drinks coffee~he looks more like a tea-drinker hehehe!


Go Bears!!


Wow, Andy! Those eggrolls look really Fab! Alicia's lucky to have a great guy like you to take care of her.

I've never made eggrolls before, but I've made gyoza. I guess that comes close.

I've never heard of a dog drinking coffee before. Audrey, you take the cake :)


Thanks for the recipe, Andy. The food looks Delish!


YUM! Can't wait to try them!


Those look so goood! I really don't think we could offer you any advice. YUM!


Oh to be kept in egg rolls! They look scrumpdillyicious.


Love this!

We have our favourite chinese restaurant that makes the best springrolls (we test this at every other restaurant and every city we visit) and your recipe is actually the closest I've seen in terms of contents to our favourites. (I think there is some bad grammar there somewhere...)

Anyways, I will be trying this recipe at home to save us the inevitable pig-out that happens when we get a craving for those springrolls ('cause y'know the rest of their menu isn't shabby either, and it seems a shame to leave without eating more than an appitizer, wouldn't want to offend the cook...)



scrummy! they look fab! what are you serving them with? i'm hungry.

i make something like this too, but i use wonton papers instead of egg roll wrappers, and i either bake them (my favorite) or you can also just eat them uncooked completely like vietnamese summer rolls. yummy!


You are the greatest! I have not made eggrolls since I was in Home Ec, when I was 13. We had to cook for our grades. I made eggrolls one weekend. Now I have made spring rolls since then. I think I actually like them better, especially with the Thai dipping sauce. I make mine, but I almost have to blindfold myself when I get out the fish sauce. You know you can buy it with the darn fish, head and all in it. Just freaks Emma out : )

Audrey likes coffee? Wow! My past puppies would not touch it. Now, I will say, I have had to grow my tomatoes in cages. Appears Cocker Spaniels have a preference for them when they are just not quite ripe, still a little pink. Both of mine ate tomatoes, lettuce, watermelon... strange stuff!

Oh, and love to cruise our local Asian markets here.. you are right, there is some strange stuff in there!


I have never seen a corgi on coffee. Sounds kinda funny. Sorry. :) Love the egg rolls!


What A love!!!!!!! You deserve that kind of a wonderful boy. How fantastic!! And those eggrolls. Andy, you are a treasure.


hmn, I love your spring rolls. We (my family) usually resort to boxes at Sam's club. But might have to try your recipe as we resolved to make one new recipe per week. So far we are on week three and doing pretty good. Would you mind sharing some rice recipes? I can not make a good rice for the life of me.

Hi Andy! Love that you call Alicia, Ali.

Alicia - Isn't it wonderful when your guy can cook.

Audrey - Coffee? Were you up all night turning circles so you could get comfortable on the pillow?

stephanie s

ahh yes, dogs. mine will eat or drink anything given the chance. but not unadorned coffee or tea, but put a little cream and sugar in there and he is all tiptoes on the tables. the eggrolls look fantastic. i have glued them together with cornstarch and water, and used a cast iron skillet rather than a wok and both work as well... i want eggrolls for lunch...


Andy! NICE JERSEY!!! I'll take a picture of the lions outside the Art Institute for you..they have GIANT HELMETS on!!!

PS, yum!

Shelley (Pink House)

Thanks Andy! And now we'd like your pork-fried rice recipe too. These were nice photos to go with the how-to. Love it.

Your dog-drinking-coffee story reminds me about the time I came around the corner from my living room to my family room and saw my Italian greyhound, Rocco, with his snout down in my coffee cup that I'd left sitting on the floor beside my favorite chair. Yuck! It had never occured to me that he might drink it, and then I got to wondering how many times I'D drank out of Rocco's leftovers. Yucky yuck. Now I try to remember to pick up my coffee cup when I leave the room.


Well Andy you can come and cook for me anytime,oh sorry Alicia I didn't know you was listening!Seriously the Asian Supermaket is great fun but beware Stuart bought this huge fruit the size of a watermelon form ours, following a recommedation from a Chinese member of staff, and it was foul. Absolutely ghastly, in fact it stank so bad that we had to open all the windows and the sun roof in the car just to get it home. Tasted awful too.


Hm, no egg roll tips, but I'm happy about that draining rack over paper towels tip. I'm going to pass it along to my chef, who plays a similar role, especially when it comes to edging away crafts for dinner plates to fit on the coffee table.


Those eggrolls look fantastic. I'm going to have to give these a try - thanks for the recipe.


Oh crap! I just spilled my morning coffee all over the place because I'm throwing my hands in the air in shock that I'm reading of a man who is willing and able to cook in the kitchen. Pardon me... goodness. Sorry.


Oh, by the way Andy... they look fabulous. Mmmmmm.
