Chinese New Year is coming up, and with that comes the inevitable hoarding that goes on in our household. Last weekend we made a trip to the Chinese grocery store (which, incidentally, has a solid cafe next door churning out Chinese home cooking that we always stop at to refuel before heading back home). I needed all the supplies for our Chinese New Year celebration — ingredients for hot pot, cookies, supplies for dumplings … and the list goes on and on.
To get ahead of the food that I’ll be preparing, last week I made gluten free Chinese almond cookies. I’ve been messing around a bit with gluten free ingredients ever since we did our Whole30 a couple of years ago, and ever since one of my sisters adopted a gluten free diet to deal with her allergies.
