Today marks the beginning for the year of the Ox, my personal zodiac sign. For those of you preparing a wonderful Chinese New Year's Feast here are a few recipes that will bring you wealth, life longevity, and fidelity in the year of the Ox.

  • Pack your plate with noodles such as Longevity Noodles because they represent a long life.
  • Since money is a little tight these days you might want to double up on Spring Rolls and Chinese Potstickers because they symbolize wealth.
  • Finally, a delicious Peking Duck represents fidelity for the coming year.

Have a great Chinese New Year!
