Savoring the flavors of Asia while celebrating the Chinese New Year! Enjoy delicious flavorful stress-free authentic Asian recipe entrees without the pressure of take-out.


Do you like to celebrate the Chinese New Year with your family? For my family and I, we absolutely love celebrating new Asian dishes during the Chinese New Year and year round.  We can’t get enough of the flavorful recipes of Szechuan Beef, Vegetarian Pot Stickers, and of course Beef Fried Rice. Even although those are some of our favorites, there are so many unique recipes that we have yet to tried.

Celebrating the Chinese New Year while savoring the flavor of Asia, can be a learning experience for everyone. Such as, did you know that many traditions for the Chinese New Year still exist even to this day? They sure do! In fact,  millions still believe in some superstitions that might surprise you.

Those who celebrate the Chinese New Year believe in;

Greeting their friends with oranges during the New Year. They believe that doing so will keep their friendships remaining intact. They believe to NOT use a broom to sweep on New Year’s Day because all of your good luck will be swept out the door. How amazing is that? That is one tradition that I’m sure that we all should adapt too.

It’s pretty amazing how Chinese New Years superstitions become more of an impact on your current or yearly goals. Like stepping into new shoes on New Year’s morning to start your New Year off on the right foot.

Some say that passing out red envelopes in the New Year is a sign of luck with money and prosperity. We do share a few interesting traditions that many of you might already do such as the New Year is great for new beginnings.  The New Year is a fresh start from where we have been and the New Year goals we try to accomplish.

Many of our traditions have come and gone but it’s nice to learn how some do still strive and exist. The Chinese New Year is a wonderful example to live by. Did you know that the Chinese New Year takes place in late January to the third week of February? It’s a mega-holiday that includes feasting, fireworks, and tons of festivities. One of the reasons why I enjoy celebrating the Chinese New Year is giving myself another chance to reach my goals and recommit in my New Year’s resolutions. Sounds fair enough right?

Superstitions or traditions may be something in the back of your mind but for others it’s another chance to keep trying. Does your family like to celebrate the Chinese New Year?

We start the Chinese New Year on savoring the flavors of Asia with Ling Ling Asian Food. Have you tried Ling Ling Asian Entrées yet? Now is the perfect time to try Chicken & Vegetable Potstickers.  These savory dumplings are not only delicious to eat but try eating them with chopsticks. Talk about fun!



Potstickers are well known and loved by those who celebrate the Chinese New Year. Ling Ling Potstickers are made with tender vegetables that “practically melt in your mouth”. Tender chicken or pork is added to give this dumpling a winning combination. Each package comes with a Ling Ling signature dipping sauce that also complements the Potstickers.



When savoring the flavors of Asia with Ling Ling Food, you’ll taste every infused flavor that practically transports you directly to Asia. A quick fact about Ling Ling Foods; Did you know they traveled to different continents to collect recipes from China, Japan, Korea, and Thailand so you can experience an authentic Asian variety of foods from each region.

Foods that have a distinctive style like Ling Ling Drunken and Yakosoba Noodles have delicious sauces, protein, and tasty vegetables. Authentic Asian style noodles like these compliment well with potstickers.

Let’s talk about Fried Rice. When it comes to Fried Rice, we do not discriminate. Ling Ling Fried Rice is a meal on it’s own. With having five unique rice dishes to choose from, Ling Ling Foods allows us to have options. Their Asian inspired Fried Rice dishes are inspired from Japan, China, Korea, and Thailand. -Warning alert. A must try is Yakitori ChickenYakiniku Beef, Thai-Style Chicken, Chinese-Style Vegetables, and Bibimbap Beef. I know that your decision will be difficult but trust me, trying more than one is recommend.

I honestly can eat fried rice every day of the week. I love it that much!



That’s why I love serving my family Ling Ling Asian Foods during the Chinese New Year. They not only give me choices in Asian dishes, but each meal is savory and delicious for us to enjoy.  My children are picky eaters and I never had any issues when serving them Ling Ling Food. One of my own favorite Asian sauces that I love making during the Chinese New Year is my all-purpose Asian sauce. It compliments beef stir-fry, white rice, potstickers, and even a chicken dish with an Asian flare. We just love it because it’s versatile.

    I love potstickers! Those things make my mouth water just thinking about it. I will definitely try these because if I can do easier than what I have been I am all for that.
