Food Blogs in Video

My family didn't get a TV until I was eight and even then, there were only two channels, both from Canada, one in French. As a thirty-something, I lived TV-free for five years. Fast forward to today: my house has three televisions, one is Wii-dedicated, the others haven't been turned on in months.

Tasty Options for Chinese New Year's Celebrations

Today marks the first day of the Chinese New Year, celebrated in many Asian countries. In Vietnam, the holiday is called Tet, and in some Asian countries it's called the Lunar New Year. KC has reminded us that the Year of the Rat is the start of the lunar cycle and a time for renewal or new beginnings. Chinese New Year festivities may include up to two weeks of activities, with family visits, lion dances, fireworks, prayers, symbolic gifts, and candles. Of course, no matter what you're calling it, there have to be special foods for a holiday like this. Many bloggers are sharing Chinese New Year's food options, some of which are authentic, while others are simply whimsical.
