Long, long ago, in a state far, far away, my friend Amy agreed to do some recipe testing for my cookbook. I was so blessed to have her on my team.

I also laughed a lot about how different our cupboards must look. She, a Kansas native, had to hunt hither and yon for certain ingredients that are simply commonplace in my California grocery stores. Amy cheerfully bought everything on the list and then said,

“Now what do I do with this bottle of cooking sherry? I only needed a tablespoon for that recipe.”

I think she might even have asked the same question about the rice vinegar I asked her to buy.

Well, as it turns out there are quite a few uses for those bottles of sherry and rice vinegar in the final edition of my cookbook, Not Your Mother’s Make-Ahead and Freeze Cookbook. In fact, those ingredients are staples in my pantry — and used often in the book.

I almost always have those in stock because I cook with both quite frequently. Since they are affordable, easy-to-find brands, I typically buy both Nakano and Holland House brands.*

In my book, you’ll find great uses for these items in:

  • Garlicky Italian Chicken Breasts
  • Herb Butter Chicken Tenders
  • Teriyaki Chicken Skewers
  • Chicken Divan with Cheddar Crust
  • Sesame Chicken with Snow Peas and Mushrooms
  • Turkey Burgers with Scallions
  • Gingery Pork and Mushroom Lettuce Wraps
  • Hoisin-Glazed Salmon Fillets
  • Soy-Ginger Pork Tenderloin
  • Asian Slaw

  1. Thanks for another great giveaway opportunity! I use both the cooking wine and vinegar on a regular basis, so I would love to win! And who doesn’t need more red in their life? I DO have your cookbook already, but if I won I would definitely pass my copy along to one of my friends!

    • @Lisa, “And who doesn’t need more red in their life?” Exactly!

      Excited to hear that you’re going to be able to share the book if you win!

  2. I also already purchased the cookbook but would love to win so I can make those recipes with wine and/or vinegar because I haven’t yet and one more trip to the grocery store might just do me in. Thanks for another great giveaway!

  3. I have the cookbook too but would love to pass it on to a friend of mine

  4. Would love to win this. Thanks.
