Celebrating Chinese New Year with Lucky Dishes

Every good holiday is centered around food and Chinese New Year is undoubtedly famous for all of its delicious dishes. Every year, on the eve of Chinese New Year, families gather around to enjoy the food (all with hidden symbolism) that is meant to bring in luck for the new year. Each and every one of my mom's dishes is carefully chosen based on its name, shape, or color to reference prosperity, luck, and happiness into the new year.
