MR. GUNG'S HAY MAKES A FAT MRS. CHOY



Gung Hay Fat Choy! The first time I saw that on my comments I thought "is someone trying to recommend a delicious dish of food to order at a Chinese restaurant?" .... I am brilliant, so it only took me about a gzillion blogs to realize .... it must mean Happy New Year or some kind of a greeting. So right back at ya... GUNG HAY FAT CHOY or Mr. Gung's hay make a fat Mrs. Choy. WHATEVER....

For fun today and in the mood for self celebration of the CNY (no CNY celebrations on Sunday in this town) I baked the Barefoot Contessa's Coconut Cupcakes.. with cream cheese frosting (YUMMMMM) and to make these treasures of scrumptious YUMMMMS in the spirit of Chinese New Year I dyed the coconut RED!!!! I passed it out to friends and family with the above greeting.... Mr Xia and Fong (my neighbors) were the first to get this greeting.... I only hope that the characters were indeed saying the intended greeting.... I have entrusted the Internet blindly on this one.....

What a cute idea. By the way, the Barefoot Contessa is my fav...I have all her cookbooks and LOVE them!

You are too good! We love the Barefoot Contessa as well... (except for my girlfriend who was told she looked like her and now she wants to kill herself as she sees herself as 36 and cute, not 50 something and "classic").

Cupcakes look YUMMY!

BTW: I am also a Rooster... my kids are a rat, tiger and sheep... sounds like an animal receipe for disaster...
