Happy Chinese New Year! It’s the year of the dragon, and with open arms I welcome a year full of new beginnings and experiences. To start the Chinese New Year off right, I made jiaozi – Chinese dumplings – using this recipe. I actually really loved the outcome and would actually eat these dumplings all day long (if I had the patience to make enough for 3 full meals). The only downside was how long it took to make the dumplings, with the rolling of the dough and wrapping of the dumpling and boiling and frying. I would say it took me a total of 3 hours, but with more practice I’m sure I’d be able to cut that time in half. Despite the lengthy cook time, the end result is absolutely worth the hard work. Xinnian kuai le!
