Getting ready

It's that time of the year where I start getting ready for Chinese New Year. I've done some spring cleaning, mainly of the yarn stash and fabric stash. It's actually frightening how much stuff I have. I really must try to knit/sew from stash this year. (Must. be. strong... and not be tempted by any yarny goodness.....)

The other thing I'm doing for Chinese New Year is baking cookies. The store bought cookies are just not the same as the ones I remember from my childhood ( a long time ago!!) So first up is Pineapple Tarts. I tried this recipe last year and it was delicious. I tried them again this year and OMG, they're delicious. I'm really glad I made the effort to make them again. And this year, I'm going to try making a few more different ones.

Ps - before I forget, the recipes come from my favourite food blog - Lily's Wai Sek Hong. All her recipes are pretty accurate and totally delicious!
