Happy Year Of The Monkey!

Gung Hay Fat Choy! Because Henry and I both grew up in immigrant Chinese households, the Lunar New Year brings back fond memories of sharing epic feasts with family…and greedily collecting red envelopes filled with money from our married relatives.

Of course, like the typical American-born daughter, I don’t follow all the traditions to a T—forcing my mom to harangue me about stuff I forget (or refuse) to do—but we do our best to impart the key traditions to the Double-Os: namely, the joys of family, food, and cold hard cash. (I’m kidding about that last one.)

Wanna celebrate along with us?
