A little DIY ingenuity in cooking.

Michelle wanted some dumplings for lunch, but  I told her we didn’t have a steamer and I could fry them up instead. She seemed disappointed, so I set out to make my wife happy.

A little foil over a pot rack brushed with with some oil and punctured with toothpick holes to start.

Cover it all with a lid that lets out some of the steam, and we’re cooking!

Tadah! Steamed dumplings!

While this probably doesn’t produce perfect dumplings, I was pretty proud of myself for coming up with this contraption. For those of you cooks that say you need to have good equipment in the kitchen, I have one thing to say to you. Not if you’re MacGyver.
