Foodie Friday: Chinese Cooking At Home

{ Via: Sandra Lee

Chinese New Year, the year of the dog, starts today and is celebrated for 15 days. It's the most important holiday of the year for the Chinese. There will be huge feasts, parades, and dressing up.  It is also a time to wish loved ones good fortune for the future. One way that we all can get in on the fun, is to attempt a few recipes in our own kitchens.  I mean, why order in, when you can make it yourself? Grab a chopstick, some five spice, and let's get cooking and celebrating.

HERE: 23 Recipes & Cooks Tools

General Tso's Chicken
Always found on a Chinese menu, but I have never ordered it.  (I have weird "thing" about warm chicken.)  "This recipe is crunchy, sweet, and salty. This quintessential chicken stir fry makes for a satisfying dinner for two on a cold night." I may have to try it.

Chinese Chicken and Brussels Sprouts Egg Rolls With Sweet Chile Pomegranate Sauce
Crispy, crunchy, and colorful! That sauce really looks divine.
Half Baked Harvest 

Cantonese Style Ginger Scallion Lobster
Often part of a ten course Chinese Wedding banquet, this dish can easily stand on its' own. It does call for live lobsters, but I would certainly substitute lobster tails.
The Woks Of Life 

Pork Wonton Soup
Doesn't this look like a big bowl of comfort?
Gourmet Traveller 

Bamboo Steamers
Exclusive and ever so handy. Bamboo steamers are the traditional, healthy way to cook vegetables, fish, dim sum, dumplings and more.
Sur La Table 

Paleo Asian Sweet Potato Noodles with Pork Ginger Meatballs
When a dish looks this good, has incredible flavors, and is high in protein, not to mention healthy, it is a winner.  This dish is also GF, dairy and egg free and Paleo and Whole30 friendly. Perfection!

Chinese Five-Spice Pork Tacos with Nectarine Salsa
I have to say, that I never thought about making a Chinese style taco. This recipe looks so fresh!
Williams Sonoma Taste

Kung Pao Brussels Sprouts
Roasted Brussels sprouts tossed with spicy Kung Pao sauce! I think that my family would love these.
Cookie and Kate 

Slow Cooker Cashew Chicken
Browning the chicken is the only real work it takes to make this dish.  It just couldn't be any easier. Love a cashew, too!
The Cookie Rookie 

Char Siu
This looks wonderful. The recipe, however, is for the ambitious chef. You have to begin the preparation two days ahead of time!

Pineapple Cookies For Chinese 
New Year
These beautiful bun-like cookies are filled with homemade pineapple jam. 

Chinese Deep Fried Oysters With Dipping Sauce
My Father and I so enjoyed our Fried Oysters. We ate them many ways but never Chinese style. In his honor, I must make this recipe.

Egg Foo Yung
This dish is always my order at a Chinese restaurant. According to the author, "This lacy golden omelette with a filling of ground pork, shrimp, bean sprouts, and scallions was originally created as a special occasion dish." 

Kimchi Chicken And Bacon Fried Rice
With bacon and pineapple, this recipe includes all of the good things in life. Oh Yum!
Half Baked Harvest

Chinese Hat Tuiles
These cookies are made of fortune-cookie batter but shaped to look like a Chinese hat. Serve them with Green Tea Sorbet. How cute!
Martha Stewart

Shiitake-and-Scallion Lo Mein
Silky Chinese noodles are served in banana leaves instead of on a plate. I may have featured this recipe before, but they are so stylish they are worth repeating!

Chinese Vegetarian Noodle Soup
A hearty one bowl dinner that can be put together in 20 minutes. Interesting that it calls for maple syrup, which I often use as a sweetener, too.

5 Easy Dipping Sauce Recipes for Dumplings
These sauces cover all of the bases for any Chinese dish that you can imagine.

Eight Treasure Rice Pudding
A very pretty and traditional Chinese New Year dessert. The number eight is a magic number for the Chinese, making this the perfect ending to any celebration!

Stainless Steel Chopsticks
A five pair set that adds a touch of elegance to your meal.

 Prawn Rice Paper Rolls With Hoisin Dipping Sauce
Now here is a Chinese New Year appetizer if I ever saw one! Instead of a fried egg roll, make it healthier and serve these.

Chinese Chicken Skewers
Made with chicken thighs, but I would substitute breasts.  The meat is marinated for at least 30 minutes, but the rest of the directions are easy. This is a must make.
