The beginning of the Chinese New Year, or Spring Festival celebration is coming up on February 5. We’ve never celebrated the Chinese New Year in our family, but recently I learned more about the activities, food, and fun involved with the holiday and thought it would be interesting to share what I’ve learned with you!
I have never been one to make recipes with 20 ingredients and spend hours in the kitchen. It just isn’t me, and when I got married, surprisingly, I didn’t suddenly turn into an excellent cook who loves grocery shopping and baking. Who knew that you didn’t turn into Betty Crocker once the wedding band went on and you said ‘I do’? It just doesn’t work that way. This is why when you take a look at my recipes, you will see that many of them have the word ‘easy’ or ‘simple’ in it – because they are! Easy dinner recipes keep me from ordering out for dinner every night or resorting to cereal for dinner.
