I hadn't heard of char sui pork before, but I looked up a recipe and it sounds delish!

That's a great list. I loooove spanakopita.

Do you have a good recipe for pho? I've never tried to make it at home. I'm in the mood for soups lately.
I had Pho for the first time today. I had been hearing about it for a while. It was very good. I look forward to having it again and trying to make it at home.

My aunt sent me a recipe that she uses but I haven't tried it yet.

Do you have a good recipe for Spanakopita? I love it but I don't have a "tried and true" recipe.
Unfortunately, no. I've had it at restaurants, but I've never made it--it makes a lot. I've been cruising the foodnetwork.com site for good recipes, tho'.
I'm trying to decide what recipe to include in the cookbook. I've seen a version where it's made into individual servings that are triangular packets of phyllo dough stuffed with spinach. It should freeze well. You could make a batch and freeze it in individual servings.

I haven't made it often because I thought phyllo dough was a pain to work with. But I did a project a while ago, wrapping brie in phyllo dough, and it was not difficult at all.
