    Yum! I’ll definitely be trying this in the near future! Sounds wonderful! Is there a substitute you could recommend for the half-and-half for dairy free folks?

      Hi, I would use Silk or the brand of Dairy free milk that you normally use! Thanks for the comment!

    Great post. I learned some very useful information from it. I’ve been trying out some new Asian recipes lately and am having a great time experimenting with them. Thanks again for this blog – it is really well-done.
