Happy Lunar New Year and Gong Xi Fa Cai!


Wishing all my readers a prosperous, happy and healthy Chinese New Year!!  Be glad that you get to spend quality time with your family and relative.  Nothing beat reunion dinner and the continuous visiting in relatives' houses for more eats and ang pows (red packet).


The things that I was most looking forward to Chinese New Year when I was young were wearing new clothes and shoes and visiting both grandmas and relatives.  Eating the Chinese New Year sweets, cookies and all the auspicious food and not forgetting receiving the red packets as well wishes.  Playing with fire crackers were fun too and I especially loved the atmosphere back home, very festive.  Moving here, I still try to provide my girls with these CNY tradition, except they don't get to visit both their grandparents and relatives.  We have friends instead.





Recipes of each cookie for your convenient:

Sugi/Sugee Cookies without sugee flour
Peanut Cookies
Honeycomb Cookies/ Kuih Bunga
LCOM's Cookies (Chocolate Orange Pizzelle)
Cornflakes Cookies without flour

Happy Chinese New Year !!!  祝您身体健康,农历新年快乐!!
