To me, a pot sticker is that yummy thing from the chinese food place that I have no clue how they make. :)

Honestly, I didn't think you came across as belittling, but I can see how your post could be taken that way. That's one of the problems with online communication, it lacks the voice inflection and body language that helps determine the meaning and context of a statement. I think if you posted under the ethnic foods section that you're chinese and the method you were taught to make pot stickers you wouldn't get too much flack for it. At least I would hope not. Sometimes communicating through text can be tough so please don't get discouraged. I'd love to here about the traditional ethnic foods you've learned to make.

Yikes! I used to administer those! 750 questions, and that was the short form! Scoring was a real pain, pre-computer...

(Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory=MMPI)

Of course, this has a lot to do with potstickers.

You'd be surprised how many of those multiphasic questions are directly related to potstickers.

750? yeah, but it was actually only about seven questions - asked in 100 different ways. i think i missed the one about potstickers back then, too.

The pot stickers are in the middle, the method I was taught is to put a little oil in a frying pan, fry the bottom side only till it is crisp and golden the add some water and put a lid on the pan.When the steam stops shooting out from under the lid they are done, I love a shredded ginger and vinegar dipping sauce with them.
